Mary Berry is not the first person you would expect to be involved with cannabis. The 84-year-old former Great British Bake Off presenter is a devout Christian and the epitome of respectable Middle England.
However, scammers have been using the star’s image and a fake endorsement to trick Facebook users into buying Cannabidiol (CBD), the legal and non-psychotropic part of the cannabis plant.
Earlier this month adverts appeared claiming Berry had endorsed CBD oil and that she “wouldn’t be alive” without it. So many people bought the product that Berry has put an “urgent statement” on her website and Facebook page to disassociate herself.
