YouTube star who was trolled for her stutter claims cannabis oil helps to CURE her speech impediment
Charity The British Stammering Association estimates around 700,000 people in the UK suffer from the speech disorder.
CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant but contains only trace amounts of the high-giving chemical tetrahydrocannabinol, making it perfectly legal in the UK.
Matice, an accountant who works in retirement planning, credits the medication for helping her to stop tripping over her words.
Her advice clips on YouTube have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
She said: ‘Since starting the blog, trolls have told me I’m “making a fool of myself” and how I should “write comments down instead of speaking them”.
‘A lot of stutterers tell me that they couldn’t do what I do, to open myself up like this.
‘But I’ve got to the point where I don’t care one way or the other about the bad comments. The people making them are just dumb.’
Matice isn’t the only one using CBD to help ease the symptoms of their stutter.
