Pam St Clement has revealed she uses cannabis every day.
The 75-year-old actress – who played the iconic Pat Butcher in the BBC soap opera EastEnders for 26 years – says she uses CBD oil to relieve the symptoms of polymyalgia rheumatic, a condition that causes muscle pain, stiffness and inflammation.
“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,” St Clement told the Sunday Mirror, adding that she’s suffered from polymyalgia rheumatic for 10 years.
“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.”
