635949243906970524-WhoopiproductsFORBES – Whoopi Goldberg is the latest celebrity “ganjapreneur” hoping to cash in on cannabis.

In partnership with the edibles maker Maya Elisabeth, Goldberg is launching a medical marijuana line of products specifically for women. The Whoopi & Maya line will include four marijuana-infused products: a balm, tincture, sipping chocolate and bath soak. The products are intended to reduce and relieve pain and cramps during menstruation.

When it comes to the marijuana industry, many celebrities have beaten Goldberg to the punch. This past February, Bob Marley’s family released a collection of “Marley Natural” cannabis and lifestyle products inspired by the deceased marijuana enthusiast. Snoop Dogg also recently released his “Leafs by Snoop” cannabis product line.

However, Goldberg’s is uniquely targeted at women and the problem of period pain. Goldberg, who openly acknowledges using marijuana, told Glamour that the marijuana industry has not been entirely accepting of her business plan.

I have a daughter and two granddaughters who inherited my horrific menstrual cramps… Being a pot smoker for years, I talked to a lot of men in the marijuana business about developing something for period relief, and they always came back with ‘That’s too niche a market.’… Half of the planet is not a niche market!

  1. If a woman use all those Products Continually, What effect will it have on the child during Pregnancy and after!!?? I ask because it is known that women addicted to Heroin and other Hard drugs have given birth to addicted babies and also some abnormal ones.

    • You are showing your ignorance. Marijuana is not physically addictive.

      • Not having EVER used any of the Drugs mentioned, I asked a SIMPLE question; but like most of those who reply on this site: you are the one to show your IGNORANCE by not being able to COMPREHEND or READ Properly. Perhaps this is due to your use of the drug, because over the years, I have heard users on TV Documentaries say Marijuana is not addictive; yet then see the effect of BULGING RED eyes and their BRAIN scans of the users that is shown. Are You some sort of Expert!!??
