Fuck Midol—give me cannabis.

Vanity Fair reports that Whoopi Goldberg is partnering with Om Edibles owner Maya Elisabeth on “Whoopi & Maya,” a company offering “cannabis edibles, tinctures, topical rubs, and a THC-infused bath soak that it describes as ‘profoundly relaxing.’” (I’ll just bet.) They’re not the first to talk weed remedies to menstrual woes, but Goldberg’s a big name with a large female audience in the form of The View, so maybe they can help this dream come true.


Goldberg—who uses a vape to manage her glaucoma symptoms—told the magazine:

“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,” she says. “Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can’t smoke a joint and go to work.”

“This, you can put it in your purse,” Goldberg continues. “You can put the rub on your lower stomach and lower back at work, and then when you get home you can get in the tub for a soak or make tea, and it allows you to continue to work throughout the day.”

“I have grown granddaughters who have severe cramps, so I said this is what I want to work on,” she added.

Maya & Whoopi products will be available starting in April—unfortunately, only in California.

The idea of putting money in Whoopi’s pocket makes me a little twitchy considering some of the things she’s said on The View in the last few years, but this sounds great.

I’m not a weed smoker (if you are then you do you, just not my thing), but I love the idea of getting the same “relaxed pain relief” feeling from a topical rub. Too bad I live in Indiana where I’ll probably be arrested for even thinking about using this.
