Patrick Stewart Admits He Uses Weed To Help With Arthritis

Say what Professor X?! In an article from The Huffington Post, 76-year-old actor Patrick Stewart has opened up about his medicinal use of marijuana for his ailments, such as his arthritis symptoms.

“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,” Stewart says. “I purchased an ointment, spray and edibles. The ointment, while providing some relief from the discomfort, was too greasy to use during daytime and so I only use it at night,” he said. “It helps with sleep as the pain was reduced. The spray, however, is much more usable and I spray my fingers and particularly my thumb joints several times a day.”

Stewart is endorsing a program in the U.K that will look into the benefits of medicinal marijuana. Marijuana is highly illegal in the U.K and is not recognized as something medical.
