- Ozzy Osbourne is using CBD for “terrible pain”
- The rock legend opted for CBD over traditional painkillers due to past addictions
- Sharon, his wife, made the revelation on ITV’s This Morning
Rock legend Ozzy Osbourne is the latest celebrity to endorse CBD as a medicine.
Sharon Osbourne revealed on ITV’s Loose Women that her husband is taking CBD oil to help him deal with the “terrible pain” he is suffering following a serious fall earlier this year.
The Prince of Darkness, infamous for his on and off stage exploits, fell at home earlier in April while recovering from pneumonia, aggravating injuries from his infamous quad bike fall in 2003.
Detailing the full extent of Ozzy’s injuries, Sharon confirmed that her husband is using the CBD to complement the daily physiotherapy he is receiving:
“(Ozzy’s) had a really tough year, really. It started off with flu, which went to bronchitis, which went to pneumonia. He was hospitalised.
“(He’s in) terrible pain and his pain is he’s not good at being at home. He wants to be back on the road, back on his tour, back with his band and he’s pining. Really the challenge is not his injuries, it’s his state of mind to keep him positive and working.”
Sharon revealed that Ozzy is using CBD when she was asked if she was worried about Ozzy becoming addicted to painkillers while in recovery:
“He’s off all of that. He had to have it after he was operated on the last time. But now for pain, he has that CBD – or whatever it’s called – and he’s dealing with it that way.”
“But now for pain, he has that CBD – or whatever it’s called – and he’s dealing with it that way.”

Ozzy isn’t the first celebrity to endorse CBD for its medicinal uses.
Pam St Clement, famous for her role as Pat Butcher on Eastenders, revealed she uses CBD to help treat her arthritis which causes pain, stiffness and inflammation in the muscles around the shoulders, neck and hips:
“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.”
Parkinson’s sufferer and Back to the Future star, Michael J Fox, also endorses CBD as a life-changing medicine:
“If there is anything working with CBD Oil has shown me, it’s that there is always hope. Even for the hopeless.”
