UK – University Challenge Presenter Jeremy Paxman says he’ll try cannabis to help his Parkinson’s

Jeremy Paxman has said he would be willing to try cannabis to ease the effects of Parkinson’s Disease.

Fronting a new documentary for ITV entitled Paxman: Putting Up with Parkinson’s, the veteran broadcaster has opened up about how he is dealing with the neurologial disease.

During the course of the film, Paxman meets with Sharon Osbourne whose husband Ozzy also suffers with Parkinson’s.

Osbourne tells the University Challenge host that Ozzy uses CBD oil to deal with the strange dreams the disease causes.

According to The Sun former X Factor judge tells Paxman: “But now he takes this stuff at night. What’s this stuff that everybody smokes? Marijuana. It is something from that — Cannabidiol.”

Osbourne then jokes to Paxman that she’ll smuggle him some in to Britain: “I’ll bring some over for you, you’ll love it. I’ll bring it back for you, Jeremy. I’ll probably get arrested coming through customs — but that’s nothing new.”

In response, the author and broadcaster said she was “on for it”.

The much-loved presenter was diagnosed with the illness last year and has since stepped away from hosting University Challenge with the current series being his last. He is set to be replaced by the BBC’s media editor Amol Rajan.
