After much anticipation, Whoopi Goldberg and award-winning edibles maker Maya Elisabeth announce the launch of Whoopi & Maya, a medical marijuana company that will focus on producing competitively priced, high quality cannabis-infused salves, balms and edibles designed to relieve menstrual pain and discomfort. 

The company’s initial offerings is a signature line of herbal medical cannabis products, formulated to provide relief for women experiencing menstrual cramps and discomfort, which will be available this month.

“I am thrilled to partner with the amazing Maya Elisabeth to provide women an alternative for relieving the pain and discomfort associated with menstruation. This was all inspired by my own experience from a lifetime of difficult periods and the fact that cannabis was literally the only thing that gave me relief,” says Goldberg, the Chairwoman of Whoopi & Maya. “The only products available to us were filled with ingredients we couldn’t even pronounce and I discovered that I was not alone in this. When I looked further, I learned that this area was considered a ‘niche’…a ‘niche’ that includes half of the population!  I was fortunate enough to be connected to Maya and this company is the result of that collaboration.”

“Every month women experience pain and discomfort associated with their period. Cannabis is a wonderful remedy, and combined with other superfoods and medicinal herbs, can provide the type of relief many women need,” said Ms. Elisabeth.

Maya Elisabeth, CEO of Whoopi & Maya is the owner of Om Edibles, founded in 2008, is one of the most innovative manufacturers in the burgeoning California medical cannabis market, and an influential member of an all-women Northern California cannabis collective, CA. She brings a wealth of personal experience and knowledge of cannabis infusion and herbal healing to this new partnership and has created a unique line of synergistic products that significantly relieve PMS, menstrual discomfort and cramps.

Whoopi & Maya’s Signature Line will offer four initial products in several scents, sizes and strengths that can work separately or together to provide a full range of monthly relief including:

·       Raw sipping chocolate infused with either CBD or THC that can be mixed in liquids such as warm milk or eaten as taste dictates

·       THC-infused tincture for serious discomfort

·       Profoundly relaxing THC-infused bath soak

·       Topical rub for localized pain

The company, based in northern California, enters California’s medical cannabis industry in the final days of the so-called “Wild West” — twenty years of rapid unregulated growth, and is poised to prosper in the modern era of professional regulation and mainstream success. The passage of the California Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act this past fall set the tone for an emerging market that is expected to double in size over the next two years.

“Whoopi & Maya has the opportunity to set the Gold Standard for the medical cannabis industry. We have given ourselves a mandate to not only provide a quality therapeutic product, but also to educate the public and support social reform,” said Ms. Goldberg. Ms. Elisabeth adds, “We are an ambitious company entering an ambitious industry and can’t wait to expand our product offerings and geographic reach.”

Whoopi & Maya’s Signature Line of medical cannabis products will be available throughout California in April 2016 beginning with:

·       Berkeley based delivery service C.R.A.F.T. Collective

·       Blum in Oakland, part of a chain of medical cannabis dispensaries owned by Terra Tech (TRTC)

·       AHHS – Alternative Herbal Health Services, one of Southern California’s largest dispensaries

·       CBCB in Berkeley
