Move over, LUSH and Sephora. This infused bath and body line provides insane pain relief.
Just when you thought a hot bath couldn’t get any better, now you can use one to help ease discomfort during your period.
Specialized cannabis products for women are reaching a whole new level of luxury and potency as the Whoopi & Maya line hits dispensaries across California. The brand is a joint venture between Whoopi Goldberg and Maya Elisabeth, founder of the successful female-run collective and medicinal products brand Om Edibles. When Whoopi decided to venture into the cannabis industry, the two became friends and decided to develop a full line of products together.
Their goal is to relieve women’s menstrual pain and discomfort in several potent and delicious ways, using only ingredients of super high quality. You won’t get a head change from a cannabis suppository, THC-infused bath, or topical rub, but the pain-relieving and relaxing properties of cannabis topicals are perfect for relieving menstrual cramping and discomfort associated with women’s monthly cycles.
Whoopi & Maya sent me the full line of products to review, and after testing them out I can honestly say they won’t disappoint! Even if you are a junkie at fancy bath and body stores, you’ll appreciate the supreme ingredients and scents that come with these products. Plus, there are THC- and CBD-medicated raw cacao tubs that are smooth, rich, and almost better than Nutella.
Can you really afford not to have these while you’re on your time of the month?! Read on to learn about these products, which are absolute perfection for your period.
For those who enjoy super-strong THC tinctures, the Whoopi & Maya Relax product will satisfy your need for quick and discreet medication. Enjoy sublingually (the flavor is herbaceous and pleasant) or drop some into a cup of hot tea while you relax in your luxurious medicated bath. The 1oz bottle is dosed at a total of 100mg THC.
Two things are necessary for a topical to work well: It has to (1) have a high cannabinoid count, and (2) be made with ingredients that are easy for the skin to absorb. Whoopi & Maya has done that with its natural beeswax, olive, and avocado oil-based rub-on pain reliever with jojoba and essential oils. Perfect for abdominal cramps, backaches, and headaches, the 50mg THC Rub product has a clean scent and leaves a pleasant residue, rather than feeling sticky or oily.
Soak bath salts are super-soothing and come in fragrances of fresh lavender, amber moon, or an unscented version. They give you a feeling of full body relaxation as the THC absorbs deep into those achy muscles. A tub of salts is dosed at around 25mg THC. Feel free to save these for your monthly cycle, but I’ve found they are equally awesome for post-workout muscle soreness.
Many chocolate-loving patients have been on the hunt for medicated Nutella to indulge in during times of discomfort. When you’re on your period, the urge for chocolate tends to increase—as does the discomfort, big time. The THC- and CBD-infused Savor products from Whoopi & Maya are made from raw cacao, not sugar. This means they’ll leave you in a state of heightened bliss, decreasing inflammation without all the ugly junk food side effects. One version is dosed with 40mg CBD and 2mg THC (20:1 ratio), while the THC tub contains 100mg. Eat it with a spoon, with fresh fruit, or with your favorite dessert.
