Hey Ladies! Whoopi Goldberg Has A New Weed Line For Period Pain!

March 31, 2016
Women are trying oh. Apart from loosing blood monthly, most of us have to deal with period cramps!
Really terrible ones that can be so bad that some of us actually pass out from the pain  have to be admitted into the hospital.

We’ve tried everything from taking hot drinks to pain killers to visiting the hospital for injections to drinking Yoyo bitters or ogogoro or dry gin.

But now, there’s something else that might just do the trick.

Legendary American actress, Whoopi Goldberg, has a cure for menstrual pain. Medical Marijuana!

The business which is based in San Francisco in the U.S of A is called Whoopi and Maya and is founded by the veteran actress and Maya Elisabeth, the founder of Om Edibles, a company that’s been treating marijuana as a superfood since 2008.

The Whoopi & Maya line will be in four forms.

• A raw sipping chocolate infused with either CBD* or THC*, which can be mixed in liquids (such as warm milk) or eaten.
• THC-infused tincture.
• A THC-infused bath soak described as “profoundly relaxing.”
• A topical rub.
THC means “tetrahydrocannabinol” and CBD means “cannabidiol”.

Whoopi hopes her products will provide “an alternative for relieving the pain and discomfort associated with menstruation.”

The weed line was inspired by her experience from a lifetime of difficult periods and cannabis literally being the only thing that gave her relief.

According to Whoopi this line will allow women to control the pain and still go about their business.

She says that, “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 products will be available in U.S from April in select dispensaries.

We can’t wait for this product to be available in Nigeria. If not, it’s online shopping to the rescue!
