Meg Mattews has revealed she runs two cannabis farms and takes CBD oil daily.

The 53-year-old ex-wife of Roll With It rocker Noel Gallagher old the Mirror she takes cannabis extract to help alleviate anxiety brought on by the menopause, and now produces her own crop.

Mathews explained: “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.

“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.”

CBD oil is made from cannabis extract and is most commonly used to treat epilepsy and conditions of the nervous system.

Mathews - who is mother to 19-year-old Anais Gallagher from her marriage to the Oasis star - now runs her own website helping other women to get through the menopause and would like to launch a TV show to raise awareness.

Mathews says she feels like a new woman and has even found love again.

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.”

Mathews added: “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.”

On her website daughter Anais Gallagher revealed her mother had become “moody” and, “cried at a lot of really weird things”, when she started undergoing the menopause. She recalled: “I remember asking her what we were having for dinner and she just burst into tears.”

Noel Gallagher once claimed in 1997 that taking drugs was “like getting up and having a cup of tea in the morning”.

But Mathews insists her partying days are over. While Anais will be joining her father at The Isle of Wight festival this week, Mathews is focusing on her business.

She said: “I don’t do any festivals any more. 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 c**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.”
