Andrea gushed about CBD oil, saying it has ‘massively taken the edge off things’ with regards to her hot flushes.

She added: ‘It has made me less anxious because anxiety is still a key thing for me.

‘Unless you have experienced it like I have, where it feels like there is a tiger in the room, then no one really understands what it is like.’

Andrea told the Daily Mirror: ‘[Anxiety] is awful. Before I started taking CBD oil my doctor recommended taking propranolol and it did change my life within a week.

‘I’m on the lowest dose and it has literally made me feel like a different person.’

CBD and cannabis oil has become a huge craze in the health world, with many people praising the product while others have warned of the dangers.

It’s available in certain health shops and pharmacies around Ireland, but higher dosages are only available through a GP’s prescription.

CBD oil has become very popular, but there are contrasting opinions.

Andrea has often spoke about her health battles, including her struggle with menopause.

When she was 37-years-old, the presenter was hit with menopause but soon after she became pregnant.

She said in 2018: ‘I was 37 when the hot sweats started, mainly at night. I was like, “What?”

‘I got pregnant shortly afterwards — there is a rush of hormones afterwards and you need to be really careful around that time.’
