It seems that more and more people are taking drops of the stuff under their tongue at night — not to get high, but to cure all manner of ailments, from sleep problems and anxiety to back pain, the menopause, and even skin problems. Cannabis oil has become the new accessory for the well-heeled wellness crowd, and a tiny bottle is fast becoming a common fixture at the bottom of an Anya Hindmarch handbag.
