Emmy award winning actress, Whoopi Goldberg has been a Hollywood heavyweight for decades. With numerous hit movies and one of the hosts on the very popular morning show, “The View,” Whoopi has made herself a household name. Now, she is taking on a new venture. Goldberg has signed on to be a part of a new line of medical marijuana designed specifically for women.
“I want to be nice and slow with this. I don’t want this to be a joke to people. It’s not a joke to women,” Whoopi told USA Today.
Whoopi’s marijuana line is designed to compromise the menstrual pains women feel on a monthly basis. The line will include a balm, sipping chocolate, a tincture and a bath soak, all infused with Marijuana to help with menstrual cramps. There is no word on the price of these products yet. The line will be sold under “Whoopi & Maya brand” only in California to people with medical marijuana cards. Although Whoopi has been public about her marijuana use in the past, she is the most mainstream celebrity that is not necessarily associated with drugs to involve herself in the cannabis business. However, Whoopi is making history with this venture. She says she is doing this with intentions of practical goals, this is not a political move. This is not a product to make you “high high,” its purpose is to get rid of discomfort.
“Smoking a joint is fine, but a lot of people can’t smoke a joint and go to work,” Whoopi told Vanity Fair. She says that the product is something you can put in your purse and rub on your lower stomach, or you can wait until you get home and soak in it in the bath.
Women all over the world struggle with menstrual pains, so we’re sure the product will be very successful. Congratulations to Whoopi Goldberg on her new venture.
