Whoopi Goldberg Creates Line of Women's Medical Marijuana Products

Another celebrity has entered the marijuana discussion: Whoopi Goldberg has announced she’ll  be producing a line of medical marijuana products aimed to target menstrual pains. Goldberg, famous her co-hosting on The View, wanted products which could relieve pain without changing one’s mental state.

“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,” Goldberg said in an interview with Vanity Fair, “Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can’t smoke a joint and go to work.”

Goldberg is teaming up with Maya Elizabeth, the founder of cannabis products maker Om Edibles, to create the new products, which will include marijuana-infused chocolates, creams and bath salts. Their  company will be called Maya & Whoopi.

Goldberg has been a long standing supporter of medical marijuana.

In 2014, she expressed love for her vape pen in a personal column on The Cannibist: “These glaucoma-induced headaches come on like freight trains — like, BOOM, my head starts hurting, my eyes start bugging, my whole body starts to tense up,” she wrote. “But then I find her [the vape pen], and it relaxes everything and calms everything. It helps my head stop hurting, and with glaucoma your eyes ache, and she takes the ache out. It’s wonderful.”

    Keep smoking pot an you will wind up looking like Whoopie!!

  • Ron Supwood

    More drug pandering from the PD. Artisan meth coverage, and advice on how to grow opium poppies organically can only be weeks away…

  • steele

    Lets see if the FDA approves this for OTC use. Until then this is pandering pot to children courtesy of the Press Democrat its editors and owners.
    Ron has it right why not articles on where to score the best Oxy’s and Xanny bars while collecting unemployment and other forms of gub’ment cheese.

    For those of you crying about the PD pandering to children, try to put your big boy pants on and pay attention. This is a medicinal product that Whoopi is promoting. MANY of us use this product already to reduce our monthly symptoms. Unless you have a uterus, stop telling us what to put in it. If you MEN were having babies and an unpleasant monthly visitor, this would have been on the market YEARS ago.

  • Joseph Harty

    The response this 70 year old veteran hears/reads is just about what you would expect, from modern children that have the money and knowledge to use computers and the net, but not a scintilla of common sense. Whoopie is wholestic, trying to promote using nature, not Monsantos to deal with medical problems. The crackhead fundementalist among us that listen to fixnews have no personal knowledge of any aspect of life in north america, Bob, Ron and CC, that’s a given. They do not believe in science, they promote, social conflicts, and back the fat cats and foreign corporations, niether of which pay any taxes, but want to tell the rest of us what to do! Eventually, when the religious crutch fades away, like all religious participation all will be lost for them, unless they can drive a truck. Because with thire total lack knowledge of the real world Bob, Ron and CC no one will trust them with anything needing an intelligent, modern problem solving skills. That’s the good news, and then in order to survive they will appreciate the constitutional system that will rehab-teach them, and only then will they be americans. Not lost, under-educated children talking through thire butts about stuff they know nothing about.

    Sorry I added CC into the stupid list, she seem to be the only one that is above 12 on issues. And glad I can add another malcontent calling itself steele, as the clearest example of fixnews by-product by blaming the poor for the thievery of the corporate/fundamentalist crackheads meddling in shit they have never understood, but have never stopped meddling in, so are worthy of occasional spontaneous laughs:)

  • Sam

    Big Whoop?

  • steele

    Thanks for the insults Joseph you see all the faults in others so clearly, I’m sure you are admired among friends and family.

  • Joseph Harty

    When I hear someone in my country saying something that makes americans sound stupid, or worst I always speak up steele. It is not the person I’m insulting, it’s the hateful corporate cold, inhumane bumper sticker dogma the clones perpetuate. Hate your neighbor, screw your country so international corporation can get large profits. Rather then treating “it’s” industry and clones as the traitors they are. Then start acting like a real american, looking out for each other. You would never serve with me, if I were differant then you, you could not be trusted to cover my six.

  • Dag nabbit good stuff you whrppeisnappers!

  • Cette idée est la bienvenue. Faire ses courses en ligne est devenu monnaie courante et je trouve que la politique de Monoprix est intéressante. J’encourage la boutique à élargir ses produits en ligne et ses projets d’ameublement.

  • yeah, I could see that. Which would explain why he’s punishing a vampire and has sheriffs under his purview. Or maybe he’s magister of that area? The old magister is finally dead, so that’s a possibility too.   0 likes
