Ozzy Osbourne is back to the weed.
He's using cannabis oil, CBD, for pain relief following a fall at home that aggravated the rods that were inserted in his neck and back following his ATV accident in 2003.
His wife and manager,Sharon Osbourne, talked about this on the U.K. daytime talk show Loose Women. She says, "It started off with flu, which went to bronchitis, which went to pneumonia. He was hospitalized, came out, [and] was well on the road to recovery, and he gets up in the middle of the night to go to the loo...and on the way back, he tripped up on the carpet that was under our bed and fell against the corner of the night table, which is made of mirror [glass]... The accident moved all the metal rods and the bones they were screwed into all splintered. Then he had trouble with his neck and they had to do two operations on him and he's in recovery now, thank goodness. But every day he has to work with a physiotherapist."
As a result, Ozzy had to postpone all touring until next year. Sharon adds, "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."
A recovering addict, Ozzy is off all painkillers, and CBD oil, made from cannabis extract, is most commonly used to treat epilepsy and conditions of the nervous system.
