Whoopi Goldberg has admitted in an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair that she has ‘taken the challenge on herself’ to see how marijuana helps with menstrual cramps.
The Academy Award-winning actress is all for female empowerment in a brand new way. She is co-partners with with Maya Elisabeth, who is the top female voice in the advancement of cannabis. Whopi plans to provide relief to women in discreet and powerful ways, so that they don’t have to be stuck to the confines of their bed.
Whoopi excitedly shared news of the business venture when speaking with Vanity Fair. “For me, I feel like if you don’t want to get high high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort,” she says. “Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can’t smoke a joint and go to work.”
Well, Whoopi has presented an array of THC-infused products for women who don’t smoke. This includes a rub that you can easily hide away.
“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.”
When asked why marijuana specifically, Whoopi explains to the magazine the wonders of the often controversial drug she has seen on other pain issues. What then is so wrong with trying it for menstrual cramps? When she found out that there wasn’t much done to see that the herb was put out there to help ease menstrual relief, she took the challenge on herself.
“Hey, this niche is half the population on the earth,” she says. “This seems to be people flippantly blowing you off, which is what you get whenever you start talking about cramps. They weren’t thinking how do you target this? I have grown granddaughters who have severe cramps, so I said this is what I want to work on.”
