Fiona: I take cannabis oil af­ter in­jury

Sunday Express - - FRONT PAGE -

TV PRE­SEN­TER Fiona Phillips has re­vealed how tak­ing cannabis oil has helped con­trol her mood swings.

The 57-year-old said she had been suf­fer­ing from post-con­cus­sion syn­drome af­ter an ac­ci­dent left her with a painful head in­jury.

Fiona vis­ited a doctor af­ter she said the con­di­tion turned her into “a jit­tery, anx­ious, con­stantly on the verge of tears, shadow of my for­mer self, with zero lust for life”.

The GP sug­gested an­tide­pres­sants which she re­fused. But, af­ter spot­ting a sign for “100 per cent le­gal cannabis oil” in a chemist, she tried it and is now re­cov­er­ing. She said: “It was ex­pen­sive but worth it. Just five drops un­der my tongue each morn­ing and I’m so much nearer me again.”

Cannabis plants are made up of 100 dif­fer­ent cannabi­noids. THC is the “psy­choac­tive” in­gre­di­ent, but an­other, CBD, is non-psy­choac­tive and is what is used in cannabis oil in the UK.
