Noel Gallagher’s ex Meg Mathews has revealed she runs two cannabis farms.
The former Britpop queen, who inspired the Oasis hit Wonderwall, is growing a legal variant of the plant to make healing oil.
She thinks it will help her and other women who are going through the menopause.
Meg, 53, says cannabis oil changed her life so she now produces her own range and hopes to sell it in shops.
She said: “I grow it in England and Ireland. The seeds don’t have THC in – the hallucinogenic part in weed which makes you get stoned. So if you went to cut that eventual plant down, then you couldn’t smoke it.
“They grow so fast and if I plant them in June then by August they will be over 6ft tall.
“I have people who test the crop to see that it is up to a high enough standard and quality.”
CBD is the non-psychoactive compound found in marijuana and hemp and is known for its medicinal purposes.
After being recommended the oil by a friend for her anxiety, Meg began to take it daily and now produces it with her own crop.
“The process goes from the plant being cold-compressed and then the liquid that comes from it looks like a black tar and then it is taken to my workshop in South London where the CBD oil is either bottled or used in other products,” said Meg.
Her products start at £70 and she hopes to benefit further by launching a TV show based on the menopause.
Feeling like a new woman, Meg wants others to experience a similar transformation.
She said: “I’ve lost two stone by a lot of walking and going on a treadmill on an incline.
“Before I had no energy. I didn’t want to look at myself in the mirror and I felt very uncomfortable going into the gym.”
She has even found a new man.
“I have got my mojo back finally and I’ve recently met someone. I get butterflies when I talk about him but we haven’t even talked about moving in just yet. For me to feel excited and go on a date is great. It’s very new and we have only just met through friends.”
Her ex-husband Noel, 52, now a solo star, infamously claimed in 1997 that taking drugs was “like getting up and having a cup of tea in the morning”.
But Meg’s party days are long gone. Her main focus is providing support through her website for other women who are going through the menopause.
And while daughter Anais, 19, will be partying away at the Isle of Wight festival to dad Noel’s music, Meg will be watching it from home.
“I don’t do any festivals any more,” she said.
“I have had the best times of my life and I have been there and I have been through Glastonbury through the best years.
“I think most of the fun for me was getting off my head and running around and not knowing what time of day it was and talking cr*p to complete strangers and telling people that I love them.
“That was back in the day and I am not going to beat that.”
