Whoopi Goldberg Launches Medical Marijuana Brand for Women in California

Outspoken marijuana supporter Whoopi Goldberg has founded a California medical marijuana company with products geared specifically towards women.

Goldberg co-founded the "Whoopi & Maya" brand with award-winning edibles maker Maya Elisabeth.

Whoopi & Maya will feature four medical marijuana products designed to alleviate menstrual pain and cramps. The brand will feature a tincture, a balm, a sipping chocolate, and a bath soak.

“I want to go nice and slow with this,” Goldberg said to USA Today. “I don’t want this to be a joke to people. It’s definitely not a joke to women.”

Thanks for letting us out of the Red Tent, Whoopi—though I can’t help but wonder if they’re pigeonholing themselves. All these products sound like they’d work for any sort of pain relief, and you show me a Running Back who wouldn’t enjoy a nice mug of “sipping chocolate” while relaxing in a fragrant bath.

Since we are all painfully aware of the fact that marijuana (medical or otherwise) is still federally illegal, Whoopi & Maya products will only be sold in California dispensaries to card-carrying patients. Looks like women in the rest of the country will have to get by with Midol, for now.
