England rugby player George Kruis used cannabis oil during the World Cup to help him sleep better. 

He also says the best money decision he ever made was setting up a cannabis oil company to provide him with an income in retirement.

Kruis has invested £300,000 of his savings in company FourFiveCBD and believes that soon many people will be using cannabis oil regularly.

The 29-year-old Saracens player, who has 41 caps and represented England at two World Cups, has also invested in buy-to-let properties and Bitcoin. 

He would like to fund more medical research into cannabis products if he were Chancellor of the Exchequer and thinks doctors should feel safer prescribing them.

Q: What was it like playing in the Rugby World Cup this year?

A: It was disappointing to lose in the final, but it was the experience of a lifetime and I enjoyed being in Japan and learning about the culture.

Q: What did your parents teach you about money?

A: To work hard for it and to make it work hard for me. My mother was a teacher and counsellor while my father was an architect, so I had a comfortable upbringing. 

They knew how to look after their money and they never just gave it to me. 

It was always a reward for something I had done, be it mowing the grass, doing the washing up or getting good grades at school.

But if I did work hard, they were generous.

My schooling was a big expense. From age 11, I was privately educated at St John’s School, Leatherhead, and I know that cost my family a lot of money. 

I am grateful to my parents for sending me there because rugby was a big feature of the school.

Luckily, I managed to get a rugby scholarship when I was in the sixth-form that made it cheaper for me to attend.

Q: Have you ever struggled to make ends meet?

A: No. I got my first rugby contract when I was 18. It was only for £5,000 a year, but I also earned match fees playing for local clubs.

In total my income was about £8,000 a year. It wasn’t a struggle to live on because my contract included free accommodation and some free meals – and even if I had been earning more, I would not have had time to spend it.

Every day, I would get up at 6am and drive halfway around the M25 to go to training at Saracens, then I would drive to Barking in Essex and train there in the evening. I would get home at 9pm.

The hours were tough, but if you get an opportunity at a national club, you make it work. Whenever I needed to, I knew I could borrow money from my parents – and that my father would make sure I paid him back, which I did.

Q: Have you ever been paid silly money?

A: No. I do not earn footballer’s wages and although I feel I am well paid for what I do, there has never been an occasion in my life when I have been taken back by the fee offered.

Perhaps there will be in the months to come foll
