Ladies, legal weed is here to give you some relief from those awful menstrual cramps thanks to Whoopi Goldberg.
Goldberg announced Wednesday she is launching a medical marijuana company with “canna-businesswoman” Maya Elisabeth complete with products like edibles, tinctures, topical cream and a THC-infused bath soak to help with period cramps, Vanity Fair reported. The company is called “Whoopi & Maya.”
“I want to go nice and slow with this. I don’t want this to be a joke to people. It’s not a joke to women,” Goldberg told USA Today.
It certainly is no joke. Menstrual cramps, or throbbing pain in the lower abdomen, can affect women before and during their periods, ranging from annoying to severe enough to impact their daily activities, Mayo Clinic notes. Some women also experience nausea, loose stool, headache and dizziness associated with their periods.
