American actress Whoopi Goldberg is launching her own collection of marijuana-based treatments to combat period pains and cramps. In other words, she is rolling a joint to get rid of the pains, so to speak.
The range includes balm, tincture, chocolate and bath soak.
60-year-old Goldberg, who won an Oscar for her role in ‘Ghost’, said, “I want to go nice and slow with this. I don’t want this to be a joke to people. It’s not a joke to women”.
The Hollywood star made the joint project with U.S businesswoman Maya Elisabeth for the range, called Whoopi and Maya.
She said, “For me, I feel like if you don’t want to get high, this is specifically to get rid of discomfort. Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can’t smoke a joint and go to work”.
The Sister Act star added, “You can put it in your purse. 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”.
What’s important to note however, is that the products will be available only in California, USA, to those with medical permission to take marijuana.
