Eastenders Pat Butcher uses CBD oil every day after smoking cannabis with Nuns.
Go on, admit it.
You once smoked a joint with some Nuns.
And from that day forward you found yourself wanting to enjoy the cannabis experience again…. every day.
Sounds crazy, I know, but that is exactly what happened to veteran Eastenders actress Pam St Clements after appearing in a cannabis documentary made by channel 4.
The actress was introduced to cannabis by a group of weed smoking Nuns who she met whilst filming the recent “Gone to Pot” documentary for channel 4. And pothead Pat didn’t just settle for a few tokes on a joint with her new friends, when the bong came out she tried that too!
Unlike a lot of UK politicians and celebrities, the actress did inhale and was so impressed with the herb that she admits to now using cannabis oil every day!
‘I have to say that it’s absolutely wonderful. I didn’t realize cannabis was such a complex plant with these properties which you can get medical help from,’
Uses cannabis oil to self-medicate
Pam suffers from a condition known as “polymyalgia rheumatic” which can cause inflammation in the muscles leading to pain in the shoulders, neck, and hips. In a recent interview with the Sunday Mirror Pam revealed that she uses the cannabis oil to self-medicate the symptoms of her disease:
“Taking this oil has changed my life. I am no longer in pain. My joints are no longer stiff, I sleep better, almost jump out of bed and walk longer distances – all things I could never have dreamed six weeks ago,”
And went on to say:
“There are things I wasn’t able to do before like carrying shopping, walking long distances and going for country walks. For the first time in years, I feel as if I am walking straight and upright,”
If you’re currently imagining a very stoned and pain-free Pam St Clements then you are only half right. It actually turns out that the popular former Eastenders actress is using a non-psychoactive cannabis extract known as CBD(Cannabidiol) which is legal in the UK to purchase and consume.
“Gone To Pot changed my life because when I went to America to find out about how cannabis has been legalized in certain states, I also discovered CBD,” she said.
UK CBD use increasing
CBD oil and CBD vape oil has become extremely popular in the United Kingdom during the last couple of years as it provides a lot of the benefits of cannabis without the “high”. It can be purchased as an edible oil and is also available as a CBD e-liquid for use in electronic vaporizers (e-cigarettes). CBD sales have rocketed recently and twice as many UK citizens are now using it compared to the previous 12 months. It’s estimated that over 250,000 are currently using various types of cannabidiol products and an even larger number are using illegal cannabis.
The momentum for cannabis legalization is building rapidly in the UK and It seems as though another celebrity, politician or famous face is jumping on the “legalize cannabis” bus almost every week. Pam St Clair is the latest to add her vocal support and I’m sure she will be an outstanding ambassador for the millions in this country who believe that cannabis and cannabis extracts should be available to all those who may benefit from them.
