When Whoopi Goldberg gets into the weed game, the world takes notice.
Today, along with award-winning medical marijuana edibles maker Maya Elisabeth, Goldberg announced their line of cannabis infused products designed to alleviate menstrual pain. Goldberg will serve as Chairwoman of the company—Whoopi and Maya—while Elisabeth will fill the role of CEO.
Elisabeth has been involved in the medical cannabis movement in California, having founded her brand Om Edibles in 2008. As Goldberg stated in the company press release:
“I am thrilled to partner with the amazing Maya Elisabeth to provide women an alternative for relieving the pain and discomfort associated with menstruation. This was all inspired by my own experience from a lifetime of difficult periods and the fact that cannabis was literally the only thing that gave me relief. The omly products available to us were filled with ingredients we couldn’t even pronounce and I discovered that I was not alone in this. When I looked further, I learned that this area was considered a ‘niche’…a ‘niche’ includes half the population! I was fortunate enough to be connected to Maya and this company is the result of that collaboration.”
