Rejoice, people of the Centennial State: Whoopi Goldberg brings pot products to Colorado. Soon, you’ll be able to buy her line of cannabis products designed to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with menstruation. So when can we expect these miracle products to hit the shelves?
Mary Jane and Menstruation
Most people with a uterus have experienced menstruation. And most people who have menstruated have also experienced premenstrual syndrome, also known as PMS. The symptoms of PMS vary from person to person, but the most common complaints associated with it include cramps, nausea, and depression. The severity of the symptoms can range from mild to severe, and pretty much everyone who experiences PMS has figured out one way or another to combat the pain.
Many people choose to take over-the-counter pain pills, like Midol or Advil. Additionally, some choose to combine pharmaceuticals with topical relief, like heating pads. But what if traditional pain medication isn’t right for you? For centuries, people have used cannabis to alleviate pain, especially pelvic pain. Reportedly, Queen Victoria even used it to soothe her menstrual cramps.
Whoopi and Maya
Back in 2016, famed EGOT superstar Whoopi Goldberg teamed up with Maya Elisabeth, the founder of Om Edibles. Together, the two created a line of cannabis-based products specifically designed to alleviate menstrual cramps. The line is called Whoopi & Maya and consists of four products: a rub, bath salts, an edible, and a tincture.
When Goldberg and Elisabeth first launched the product, their distribution was limited. You could only buy Whoopi & Maya products in California. But on November 15, that’s about to change. On that date, Whoopi Goldberg brings pot products to Colorado.
So far, Whoopi & Maya products will hit the shelves of a total of ten dispensaries in the state. Given the popularity of the line, combined with Whoopi Goldberg’s celebrity status, interested customers might have to face some long lines when it comes out. It makes sense, really. No one likes painful menstrual cramps. On the other hand, most people like Whoopi Goldberg.
Final Hit: Whoopi Goldberg Brings Pot Products To Colorado
Whoopi Goldberg’s menstrual cramp combatting line of products shouldn’t be as revolutionary as it is. About fifty percent of the population menstruates and experiences PMS. So relief from that would be an obvious market, right? But when Goldberg first pitched her idea to established people in the cannabis industry (men), she was told that period and premenstrual syndrome relief was “too niche of a market.” Goldberg knew that that statement was totally wrong. She persevered and teamed up with a business and cannabis-savvy woman to bring her idea to fruition. She even put her career with ABC on the line to pursue her passions: pot and pain relief.
Now, Whoopi & Maya products are so popular and successful, Goldberg and Elisabeth are able to expand their business to another state. It’s a great thing for Colorado residents who are aching for relief. And it’s also vindication for anyone who has ever been told that women are a “niche market.”
