LOS ANGELES: American actress Whoopi Goldberg has announced that she is launching a line of cannabis-infused products aimed at women. Goldberg has partnered with a northern California-based producer of marijuana edibles to form a company that will offer products designed to alleviate menstrual pain, like cannabis-infused chocolate, tincture, cream and bath salt, the New York Times reported.

“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,” Goldberg, a long-time proponent of marijuana legalisation, said in a statement.

The brand, Whoopi & Maya, created with the marijuana entrepreneur Maya Elisabeth, will be available only in California for now.
