Whoopi Goldberg supports marijuana treatments for menstrual cramps. The actress is currently collaborating with Maya Elisabeth, a manufacturer of edible goods, in order to create edible marijuana products that will be prescribed for dysmenorrhea.
A Bill Is Being Introduced in New Jersey
At the present moment, three members of the Democratic Assembly are trying to introduce a new bill in the state of New Jersey. The law will allow doctors to prescribe medical marijuana products to women that suffer from severe dysmenorrhea.
Grace Spencer, Angelica Jimenez, and Tim Eustace introduced the law this Thursday. If it gets approved, then women in the state of New Jersey will be allowed to treat their menstrual cramps with cannabis-infused creams, oils, and chocolate.
Currently, Marijuana Is Prescribed for Serious Ailments
New Jersey still has a strict policy when it comes to marijuana use. The drug is only prescribed for those suffering from terminal cancer, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, glaucoma, and seizures. The substance is also used in chronic disorders that usually feature intense pain and a lack of appetite.
But the three members of the Democratic Assembly are fighting to give women a chance at relieving their menstrual pain.
There Is No Efficient Treatment for Menstrual Pain
Women who suffer from severe dysmenorrhea have described the pain as being “like a thousand knives are stabbing her at the same time for hours on end”, others said that their monthly pain can be compared to “grinding all of her organs on an old, chippy grinder.”
But the doctors can’t do anything to relieve their pain but prescribe them some pain medication that sometimes works, other times it only makes things worse.
By developing a unique brand of products for women who suffer from severe dysmenorrhea, doctors, and women nationwide would feel happier. During that time of the month, females already crave chocolate and other sweets. By giving them a cannabis-infused chocolate bar, they will forget all about cravings and pain.
Whoopi Goldberg Supports Marijuana Treatments for Menstrual Cramps
Being a woman affected by dysmenorrhea, Whoopi Goldberg supports marijuana treatments for menstrual cramps.
The actress noticed that there is a niche market for edible marijuana products in the state of New Jersey. So she decided to collaborate with Maya Elizabeth in order to offer women the chance at relieving their monthly pains in a more efficient way.
Whoopi & Maya products will hit the market after the bill is passed and the prescription of marijuana products for dysmenorrhea treatment will be legalized.
