Fight Menstrual Pain The Natural Way – Whoopie & Maya

We are thrilled to offer a new line of products made consciously and specifically for women at Life Flower Dispensary.  Whoopie & Maya is a collaborative venture between the world famous actress Whoopie Goldberg and industry veteran Elizabeth Maya and was created to help women find herbal relief during that rough time of the month. When Whoopie Goldberg thought about a cannabis-related business investment, one of the first things that came to mind were her granddaughters and their monthly struggle with their periods. This inspiration helped produce four amazing products that every woman needs to know about. If there are any gentleman reading this, I recommend picking up any of these products for a special lady in your life at our Denver recreational dispensaries (it will literally make her day).

SOAK Bath Salts from Whoopi & Maya, are made from organic and locally sourced ingredients including Epson Salt, Lavender, Avocado Seed, Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Cannabis Distillate, and CBD Distillate. This product is high in micronutrients including magnesium, which alleviates soreness by extracting lactic acid from the muscles. Between that and the heat of the water, you end up with an amazing body high that affects you both topically and internally. (25mg THC, 25mg CBD)

RUB Body Balm is a highly effective organic salve that relieves not only cramps but also anything from headaches to arthritis. The RUB Body Balm by Whoopi & Maya contains the magical healing properties of Cramp Bark and White Willow Bark, which have been used by herbal healers for thousands of years. It’s discreet and can be left in your purse to use wherever discomfort arrives. Despite the concentrated amount of Cannabis, you can still apply it and remain fully functional and focused. (75mg THC, 25mg CBD)

RELAX Herbal Tincture is a delicious and inconspicuous way to medicate and add fast-acting relief for menstrual cramps. Ingredients such as Elderberry, Red Raspberry Leaf, Motherwort, and Passionflower work together to comfort your body both physically and mentally. I loved the way RELAX Herbal Tincture by Whoopi & Maya tastes on its own & is one of the best edibles in Denver, but you can also add it to a hot or cold beverage (I recommend some kind of berry or fruit flavored tea!). (100mg THC)

SAVOR Sipping Cacao is a gift from the chocolate gods. Each pouch contains 10mg of THC and organic raw cacao. I always crave chocolate during my periods, so this delectable (and gluten free!) superfood is almost too good to be true. Did you know that cacao contains more antioxidants than any other food on the planet? No wonder it’s such a “feel good” snack. Whoopi & Maya also have a CBD version for anyone who wants to indulge without any psychoactive results. You can sip it right out of the pouch, or add it to some fruit or a piece of toast. I enjoyed my cacao mixed with 6 oz of warm almond milk and it was absolutely exquisite!

Her love for live music led to a blogging position with a production company, which eventually led to a part-time writing position for DOPE Magazine, where she has contributed for over a year now. You can most likely find her taking dabs in the mountains on the weekends, smoking joints at a concert, or longboarding around Denver in search of the headiest craft brews. Melissa is thrilled to be a writing correspondent for Life Flower Dispensary, because it’s one of the few dispensaries in Denver she can always count on for clean, organic, hand-crafted cannabis.
