Here at Cycledork we appreciate a natural approach to everything period, and menstrual cramps are no exception. (Read about some of our suggested natural remedies here.) And it seems like actress and The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg feels similarly. It was recently announced she co-created a line of all-natural, menstrual cramp relieving products. What makes this so special, you wonder? (Besides the awesome news that Whoopi wants to help relieve our menstrual woes?)
The main ingredient is cannabis.
Whether or not you are a supporter or user of marijuana its medical use has been shown time and time again to be a natural pain reliever and has helped everyone from cancer patients to glaucoma sufferers significantly reduce their pain without relying on the use of powerful prescription drugs. In fact, marijuana is so effective medicinally several states have legalized it for use in a clinical setting.
Inspired by her granddaughters who suffer severe menstrual cramps, Ms. Goldberg’s San Francisco-based company Whoopi & Maya (co-founded with Maya Elisabeth, a renowned “canna-businesswoman”) is offering all-natural ingredient medical cannabis products like bath soaks, edible superfoods and topical rubs. Their purpose: to help you enjoy the pain-relieving benefits of the oils found naturally in cannabis, which, by the way, has pain-relieving qualities, but sorry to say, will not get you high, so use as directed.
Whoopi & Maya’s products will be available in April, but only in California for now, The Cut reports.
This seems to be catching on. Some of you might remember our previous post on Foria’s “vagina weed” suppository.
Would you use cannabis products to help alleviate pain from menstrual cramps?
