Whoopi Goldberg Is The Next Celebrity To Get Into The Cannabis Game — All In The Name Of Relieving Menstrual Cramps!
Ladies everywhere rejoice!
What makes her product different? It's all in the name of relieving women's menstrual cramps.
The 60-year-old admits she was motivated to pursue the cause because of having "grown granddaughters who have severe cramps" — so she's doing something about it!
The View host is partnering with "canna-businesswoman" Maya Elisabeth to launch a medical-marijuana company called Maya & Whoopi that will offer cannabis edibles, tinctures, topical rubs, and a THC-infused bath soak that it describes as "profoundly relaxing."
The company will also include products that only use cannabidiol (CBD) — which lacks the euphoric effects of weed, but still gives the consumer the health benefits of cannabis (so, everything but the high).
"For me, I feel like if you don't want to get high high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort. Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can't smoke a joint and go to work. This, you can put it in your purse. You can put the rub on your lower stomach and lower back at work, and then when you get home you can get in the tub for a soak or make tea, and it allows you to continue to work throughout the day."
The whole line is scheduled to be available in April — but for now (because of state medical-marijuana laws) will only be available in California.
