Whoopi Goldberg , comedian, actress and host of The View, just announced her own line of medical marijuana with a well-known business woman of the cannabis world Mary Elizabeth, with just the finality to provide women a relief from their menstrual cramps.
According to Goldberg, over 50% of women experience painful cramps during their periods. That’s where “Whoopi & Maya” comes out, bringing to their customers pot-infused salves, topical rubs, tinctures and even edibles to help relief the pain of menstrual cramps to every woman.
We might be aware that not every woman might buy this, but Goldberg is conscious that the products we will be offering are for a market “niche” – a big “niche” of about 50 percent of women”.
Four products under the “Whoopi & Maya” brand will be released on April, one of them being a “raw sipping chocolate” which will be infused with CBD or THC – both cannabinoids psychoactive –, THC-infused bath soak, a topical rub and finally a tincture (liquid extract) as “last resource” for pain-relieving.
We all know Whoopi is a strong public supporter of the marijuana, but she and Elizabeth wanted to create products that women could use discreetly without leaving them “glued to the couch”.
Goldberg also stated that “Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can’t smoke a joint and go to work.”
Are “Whoopi & Maya” the only pot-product sellers?
Unfortunately, this is a total “No”. Bob Marley’s family released in 2015 a natural “Luxury Cannabis Brand” – the first ever launched –. Bob’s son, Robert “Raffa” Marley did the launch of this product at Los Angeles, CA.
Also, Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. also known as Snoop Dogg launched on September 22nd, 2015 a web platform about the “pothead” lifestyle, where you can find people who are interested in smoking to regular smokers stating that Merry Jane – a “dope” name, isn’t it? –being an Encyclopedia-like about the Cannabis.
Country singer Willie Nelson in 2015 established his own marijuana brand called “Willie’s Reserve”. The idea was to open chain stores all over the states where marijuana is legalized, where Nelson’s spokesman Michael Bowman states that “this is a culmination of Nelson’s vision and his whole life”.
Goldberg’s idea of a female-inspired product was due a lifetime of difficult periods and because the products available were unpronounceable. Also, with these products they want to educate a bit more about the use of medical marijuana.
