National treasure Whoopi Goldberg is the latest stoner celeb to launch her own line of weed products (she joins the illustrious ranks of Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson), but Goldberg’s offering is especially awesome because it’s targeted specifically to women who suffer from period cramps.
And while it makes for a snappy headline, Goldberg is taking her new venture very seriously, lending both her name and financial backing to the company. “I want to go nice and slow with this,” she told USA Today. “I don’t’ want this to be a joke to people. It’s not a joke to women.”
Launched with partner Maya Elisabeth, the line is dubbed “Whoopie & Maya” and features four products: a balm, a bath soak, an extract and a “sipping chocolate” (boy, I like the sounds of that last one). Naturally it will only be available to California residents with medical marijuana cards, but one would hope that the existence of Goldberg’s products might prompt more doctors to issue cards for women who suffer from cramps and other painful symptoms during their period (from what I gather getting your hands on a card isn’t so tricky anyway, but still).
Just when you thought you couldn’t love Whoopi Goldberg any more, am I right?!
