— Whoopi Goldberg and award-winning edibles maker Maya Elisabeth have launched Whoopi & Maya, a medical cannabis company that focuses on producing competitively priced, high quality cannabis-infused salves, balms and edibles designed to relieve menstrual pain and discomfort.
“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.”
Maya Elisabeth, the founder of Om Edibles since 2008, has won eight (8) High Times Cannabis Cup awards, and enjoys a growing reputation as one of the best creators of medical cannabis products in California. As an influential member of an all-women Northern California cannabis collective, Maya brings a wealth of personal experience and knowledge of cannabis infusion and herbal healing to this new partnership.
Elemental Wellness has long considered the needs of its women members a very important priority, and has searched for solutions especially formulated for women.
“Elemental Wellness takes great pride in searching out cannabis infused products to meet the needs of our female members,” said Amanda Griffin-Snyder, an Elemental Wellness Founding Member. “We are very excited to launch the Whoopi & Maya product line during a special kickoff event.”
Everyone is invited to come and meet Maya Elisabeth and see these products firsthand on Saturday, October 15, 2016, 1:00-4:00p, at Elemental Wellness, located at 985 Timothy Drive, San Jose, CA.
About Whoopi & Maya
Whoopi & Maya is a medical cannabis company based in San Francisco, California. Founded by Whoopi Goldberg and Maya Elisabeth in 2016, Whoopi & Maya focuses on producing competitively priced, high quality cannabis infused salves, balms and edibles designed to relieve menstrual pain and discomfort.
Products include –
Savor – Cacao enters your body through your endocannabinoid receptors just like cannabis and releases an array of “feel good” chemicals that physically improves your mood. Coupled with cannabis this raw, organic cacao is sure to help with inflammation, sleep, pain, irritability, joint pain, and the uterine cramping and discomfort associated with the menstrual cycle, all while providing for a truly health beneficial experience. Available in both THC and CBD, Savor is a very versatile product.
Rub – Consisting of a carefully chosen blend of healing herbs and health beneficial ingredients, this topical is highly effective. Included in our herbal blend is white willow bark, the active ingredient in aspirin, ginger, which increases blood flow and circulation to the abdominal area, and St. John’s Wort, to uplift the mood and help support the ups and downs associated with P.M.S. Our signature blend of cannabis and essential oils makes this salve both discreet and intoxicatingly enjoyable.
Relax – Even Queen Victoria found relief once a month with her favorite THC infused tincture. Tinctures are a time-honored way of delivering fast acting and powerful relief. Whoopi & Maya’s Medical Cannabis Herbal Tincture is made with an intentionally chosen group of medicinal herbs and superfoods. Women have used herbs to help with menstrual discomfort for hundreds of thousands of years, many of these herbs having received their name for their healing abilities, for example cramp bark. Cramp bark, coupled with red raspberry, and motherwort, support the uterus, while passionflower calms the nerves. They have combined these medicinal healing herbs with cannabis and raw, organic, unfiltered honey, another nutrient dense superfood that is also delicious.
