Phillip Schofield Binges On Cannabis Products Live On 'This Morning'
Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby just tested out the best cannabis products the market has to offer live on Thursday's instalment of This Morning.
CBD is legal in the UK and there's a number of products on the high-street.
The This Morning hosts decided to give all the delicacies a whirl, including cannabis croissants and gummy sweets as well as infused beer and marshmallows.
They weren't trying to 'get high' as the segment was actually looking at the health benefits of CBD, a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant - although at one point Phil hilariously panicked that he'd eaten too many of the products.
CBD is extracted from the flowers and buds of marijuana, and Phil was sure to try all of the products segment co-host Alice Beer had to offer them.
After trying out the croissants with 5mg of CBD, Phil then tucked into one of the marshmallows while Alice recalled the effect it had on her.
She explained: "I had one last night, went out to walk the dog in the pouring rain. The dog hid under a tree and I was taking selfies in the pouring rain and I thought, 'Oh, that's quite nice!'"
Clearly worried about the amount of CBD he'd consumed, a startled Phil exclaimed: "I have a really, really busy afternoon!"
He then declared: "I've tasted it all! You said it to was going to have no effect!"
And Alice replied: "'Don't listen to anything I say. If you're going to work with Phil today you're in for a good day."
Viewers watching at home shared their disbelief over the scenes on Twitter.
"Crying at work at @Schofe thinking he's gonna be on a cannabis buzz all afternoon," quipped one This Morning viewer.
And another added: "So @Schofe and @hollywills are trying cannabis on #ThisMorning, now that's a sentence I never thought I'd hear myself say."
@Schofe having food made from and containing harmless levels of legal cannabis- or so he was told. Definitely watching him closely now. #ThisMorning #ohsheet pic.twitter.com/tSjqtCw7Sz
