Perhaps the Prince of Darkness isn’t the first person you’d expect to extend your sympathies, but from the sound of it, Ozzy Osbourne has been having a tough go this year. Osbourne had planned to tour significantly, but he’s since postponed all 2019 tour dates due to sickness and injury.
Pneumonia and a fall at home — in which his head smashed a bedside table, dislodging metal rods from a previous ATV accident years back — are to blame. But according to his wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, Ozzy has turned to CBD oil to assist in his recovery.
“He’s off all of those [painkillers]. He had to have it after he was operated on the last time but now for pain, he has that CBD oil — whatever it’s called — and he’s dealing with it that way,” she said in an interview with Loose Women.
Ozzy has a history of addiction issues, which might explain why he’s opting for CBD oil instead of addictive opioids. In her interview, Sharon said he’s currently working with a physiotherapist as well. But Ozzy’s greatest difficulty, according to Sharon, might be the boredom of being stuck at home.
“He’s in terrible pain and his pain is, he’s not good at being at home. He prefers to be back with his band and he’s pining and it’s really—the challenge is not his injuries, it’s state of mind and keeping positive.”
