Ex-Arsenal ace John Hartson reveals he is treating nagging footie injuries with cannabis oil

EX-ARSENAL ace John Hartson has told of how he is treating nagging football injuries with cannabis oil.

The former striker, 45, is flogging CBD and sweets online — and claims it dulls his agonising back aches.

Hartson began taking the gummies five months ago and is now an ambassador for Supreme CBD.

He said: “There’s few people in the game who have had more serious injuries than me.

“I had two back ops which caused me to miss the Uefa Cup Final. I’ve had surgeries on my brain and lungs.

“I’m feeling great since starting with the oil.

“It helps with anxiety, depression, aches and pains, sleep and is used by loads of top boxers to aid their recovery. It’s magic in a bottle.”

Liverpool-based Supreme CBD is run by Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medal-winning boxer Anthony Fowler.

The legal supplement is made by extracting therapeutic chemicals from hash plants.

Hartson — who also played for, among others, Arsenal and West Ham — has battled ill health, gambling addiction and beat testicular cancer which spread to his lungs and brain since quitting footie.

He has been using his time in lockdown to record a new podcast series featuring guests such as Jackie McNamara, Gail Porter and former Scotland and Hearts boss Craig Levein.

The shows are set to be released early next year.
