Patrick Stewart has revealed that he uses medical marijuana daily to help him deal with the symptoms of his arthritis.
The veteran actor, 76, made the admission as he threw his support behind a UK-first research initiative by Oxford University which aims to explore the benefits of cannabis-based medicines.
In a powerful statement, the X Men star explained that he uses an ointment, spray and edible marijuana medicine to help him with his condition.
He explained: ‘Two years ago, in Los Angeles, I was examined by a doctor and given a note which gave me legal permission to purchase, from a registered outlet, cannabis-based products, which I was advised might help the ortho-arthritis in both my hands.
