Whoopi Goldberg on Using Cannabis For Treating Menstrual Cramps
Grammy, Oscar, Golden Globe, Emmy and Tony-award winning actress Whoopi Goldberg talks to Dr. Dina about co-founding a new medicinal marijuana startup featuring a product line geared towards women dealing with menstrual cramps.
She discusses Whoopi and Maya, the company that she co-founded alongside veteran cannabusiness entrepreneur Maya Elisabeth will offer cannabis edibles, tinctures, topical rubs, and a THC-infused bath soak.
Goldberg has been outspoken about her medical-marijuana use in the past. In 2014, she wrote in The Cannabist about her love of her kush-filled vape pen, which she says gives her relief from glaucoma-related headaches without resorting to eating handfuls of Advil every day.
Goldberg told Vanity Fair, “I started using the vape pen because I stopped smoking cigarettes about four years ago and discovered I couldn’t smoke a joint anymore,” she says. “The relief that I got with the vape pen was kind of different from what I got with smoking. I could control it much better.”
