Lizard Green, founded by tech entrepreneur Nick Boardman, is offering its products to frontline workers at cost price to help them “cope with the stress and anxiety of fighting the coronavirus pandemic”.

Boardman launched the business after using cannabis oil to treat his own anxiety and depression, and better cope with his  type 2 diabetes.

He is the founder of computers business Rock Group PLC, which became one of the UK’s fastest growing businesses in the late 2000s.

He said:  “I just want to get behind the superhuman NHS frontline workers, and based on my own life-changing experience of using CBD oil this is something I want share with them.

“We have to cherish those who dedicate themselves to our care, without regard for their own health as they work tirelessly to care for people in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic.”

Lizard Green CBD (99.8 per cent pure CBD isolate) comes in a range of four flavours – Lemon, Berry, Peppermint and Lime – and is available in three sizes: 500mg, 1500m, and 3000mg.

Boardman said moving out of the tech space to cannabidiol was all down to the life-changing benefits from his personal use of CBD oils.

“I’m 48 years-old. Two years ago, it basically hurt just to be alive. I’d been in a number of accidents – including a heavy motorcycle crash – earlier in my life and woke up everyday with debilitating aches and pains. 

“The physical pain eventually led to depression and anxiety because that’s what living with pain does to people – it gets in your head. On top of that, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. 

“I heard about a couple of England rugby players using CBD oil for recovery, and out of desperation more than anything else I tried CBD oil. I’d also heard it could also help regulate blood sugars for my diabetes.

“I can’t describe the change CBD oil has made in my life. The aches and pains have all but gone, as has the depression and anxiety. I’ve never slept better in my entire life.

“CBD oil has without question changed the direction of my life. Quite frankly, I don’t think I’d be here today without using CBD oil. It has been the game-changer for me.

“I hope frontline NHS workers get to enjoy the benefits of Lizard Green CBD Oil.”
