The number of cannabis oil users across the UK has doubled in the space of one year, startling new figures reveal.
Regulatory body data shows there are now 250,000 users across the home nations - up from the 125,000 recorded this time last year.
Cannabis Trades Association UK also states there are now around 1,000 new users each month, despite the oil being shrouded in controversy.
Mike Harlington, chairman of the CTA UK, revealed around 65 per cent of these are women seeking relief for their back pain, anxiety and epilepsy.
The figures come after two middle-aged women recently revealed how cannabis oil helped to eradicate one of her crippling back pain, and the other her cancer.
CBD, which reportedly has no side effects, influences the release and uptake of ‘feel good’ chemicals such as dopamine and serotonin.
The compound has been credited with helping to relieve pain and stiffness, as well as aiding conditions such as anxiety.
CBD comes in many forms, the most popular being an oil - which users spray under their tongue - or gel tablets which melt slowly in the mouth.
Neither form contain THC - which causes the 'high' in cannabis.
