Many women have experience the monthly discomfort of painful cramps do to their menstrual cycles. Whoopi Goldberg is offering a new solution for this pain: cannabis edibles, topical rubs, liquid extracts, and THC-infused bath soaks. In partnership with the cannabis company Om Edibles, owned by Maya Elisabeth, Goldberg says their new joint company Whoopi & Maya will endorse these products that are intended to remove discomfort, targeted towards women who don’t feel comfortable smoking marijuana.

Goldberg told Vanity Fair, “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.” For many, particularly women who find their cramps to be utterly debilitating, this product is a return to freedom, allowing women to go about their daily lives without hindrance.

Having two granddaughters who reportedly suffer extremely painful cramps, Goldberg realized that the market for feminine pain products – made with all-natural ingredients – was wide open. Many companies aren’t interested in offering a women a solution for their pain, refusing to recognize them as a serious problem worthy of treatment. Having treated her own glaucoma-related headaches with marijuana for years, Goldberg is well-versed in the healing attributes of the product. Beginning this month, California residents with a medical marijuana card will be able to purchase these new pain relieving products.

Elisabeth, who will be CEO, while Goldberg works as chairperson, describes the products as discreet, with the flavor of cannabis hardly noticeable. Though the bath soak and rub will not induce a marijuana high, the other products are likely to because they are psychoactive. Though central marketing is for women, Elisabeth also expressed that many men have shown interest in using the products. In her own words, “That’s one of the things that’s so beautiful about cannabis. The side effects [of the products] are desirable.”
