Whoopi Goldberg just solved your menstrual cramp problems…with marijuana. The iconic entertainer teamed up with partner Maya Elisabeth to create a range of medical cannabis products targeting women.
The four-product line includes a balm, sipping chocolate, tincture and bath soak, aimed at relieving pain from menstrual cramps. Goldberg has been vocal about the myriad benefits of marijuana use, including its medicinal properties. Now she’s graciously sharing that knowledge with women in need and capitalizing on the cannabis market, which drove $2.7 billion in sales last year in California alone. The View cohost told USA Today: “I want to go nice and slow with this. I don’t want this to be a joke to people. It’s not a joke to women.” And Amen.
For now, Whoopi & Maya products are only available to California residents with medical marijuana cards. Marijuana is still an offense under federal law but with Whoopi behind the movement in a major way, we’re hopeful that will change soon.
