Andrea McLean used cannabis to cure menopause hot flushes


Andrea McLean won a fresh army of fans with her grit and humour on Celebrity SAS – but some of her struggles were out of the limelight.

The Loose Women star has fought off ­crippling anxiety caused by the menopause.

But today she feels she is finally out of the woods, thanks to cannabis oil.

A GP prescribed propranolol pills, which helped enormously, but then she heard about CBD hemp oil and gave it a try.

It worked. Andrea said “It has ­massively taken the edge off things with the flushes and it has made me less ­anxious because anxiety is still a key thing for me.

“Unless you have experienced it like I have, where it feels like there is a tiger in the room, then no one really understands what it is like. It is awful. Before I started ­taking CBD oil my doctor recommended ­taking propranolol and it did change my life within a week. I am on the lowest dose and it has literally made me feel like a different person.

“It is not an anti-depressant but what I no longer feel is that sensation of being on high alert.”
