The famous Hollywood actress Whoopi Goldberg recently endorsed medical cannabis use. She collaborated with Om Edibles founder, Maya Elisabeth, to create a line of various products aimed to helping women treat menstrual pain.
Goldberd stated she has been suffering from painful periods all her mature life and she claims cannabis helps her.
“The only 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’ that includes half of the population! I was fortunate enough to be connected to Maya and this company is the result of that collaboration,” Whoopi Goldberg told ET in a statement.
The collaboration between two also include products like: cannabis-infused cacao butter, an herbal tincture made with medicinal herbs and superfoods, a cannabis and beeswax skin rub, and lavender bath salts.
While helpful for all pain relief, when used topically, cannabis mingles with nerve endings where pain is felt, and therefore is potentially very soothing for women suffering the aches, pains and cramping associated with their menstrual cycle.
Goldberg is very well-known for being open about her medical cannabis use, claiming it helps her with numerous uncomfortable conditions, such as crippling glaucoma-induced headaches, to name just one.
Maya Elisabeth also elaborates why cannabis is valuable medicine, and why people should reach out for it instead of taking harmful pharmaceutical drugs.
On their website, she says: “Cannabis is the best medicine because you have more than 200 cannabinoid receptors all over your body. They’re all over your brain, they’re all over your vital organs, and they’re everywhere important where you have major functions going on, like your reproductive center, your sleep center and the part of your brain that controls your appetite. The side effects are desirable, there’s feeling good, sleeping well, eating, probably having some laughter and some people only smoke cannabis to get those results, so it’s honestly the wonder, miracle medicine.”
