A golfer whose professional career was nearly ended by multiple sclerosis (MS) has credited the benefits of cannabis oil for bringing him back to the brink of an amazing comeback.
Chris Bibby went from the career high of fourth place at the 1998 Portugal Open on the European Tour, to the depths of contemplating taking his own life on a motorway bridge after the disease left him in constant pain and confined to a wheelchair.
But after discovering the life-changing effects of cannabidiol (CBD), the 42-year-old is now looking forward to a far brighter future and even has ambitions to reignite his competitive playing career.
A European Tour player in 1998-1999, the Bury golfer went into teaching before his diagnosis with MS in 2015 and became head professional at Whitefield Golf Club in 2019.
But soon after he began to experience increasing health issues with excessive inflammation of the joints and muscle spasms which deteriorated so much that he was unable to even walk.
