As one of the biggest names in Hollywood, Whoopi Goldberg is no stranger to using her fame to promote the causes that she’s passionate about, and one of those causes happens to be CBD and the health and wellness benefits it can bring.

As a well-known advocate for women, Goldberg has often taken the stand on causes from violence towards women to voting. Now, she has paired this passion for women’s rights with her interest in the benefits of cannabis to create a line of CBD products that have the potential to improve health and wellness, and in particular, to improve the overall well-being of women. 

An Advocate For Marijuana Use

Although she is best known for her comedy and acting roles on screen, Whoopi Goldberg, the star of movies such as Ghost and The Color Purple, has for some time been very open about her use of cannabis to relieve her various ailments. One of the conditions that she admits to having used marijuana for is menstrual cramps. By drinking tea infused with cannabis, she helped to control her pain and cope more effectively with “that time of the month”. Her recent venture has harnessed the potential of cannabinoids to help other women to experience their relief from period pain. 

Passionate About Well-Being 

As an award-winning performer, Goldberg has never been shy about using her platform of fame to highlight the issues that are close to her heart. The well-being of women is one of those key issues. Having spoken out about topics as far ranging as bladder leakage and abortion rights, Goldberg hasn’t held back from talking about her own health problems, including the period pains that she used to suffer in her younger days. She discovered that using marijuana helped her to overcome the cramps that she experienced, and now that her adult granddaughters are suffering from the same problems she wanted to find a way of helping them to find relief without them having to damage their lungs by smoking cannabis. 

Harnessing The Power Of Cannabidiol

Goldberg formed a partnership with Maya Elisabeth to create an exciting line of products specifically tailored to meet the needs of menstruating women. Their Whoopi & Maya line utilizes the power of CBD or cannabidiol to help calm the unwanted symptoms that women experience during their menstrual cycle without any of the unwanted psychoactive effects associated with the THC content, but with all of the potential benefits of the other cannabinoids and terpenes found in the cannabis sativa plant. 

The brand’s products use extracts that are naturally-sourced from organically-grown ingredients and have been created to alleviate discomfort while boosting relaxation and rejuvenation. The Hollywood star hopes that more women will begin using these products to improve their overall well-being, especially on their most serious cramping days, and will begin to recognize the benefits that CBD offers over NSAIDs so that a revolution in period self-care can be the next step forward for a new generation.
