One of Hollywood’s most visible advocates for cannabis and CBD products is Whoopi Goldberg. She is the only black woman to win an EGOT – an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award – as well as a long-time host of The View and one of the world’s most recognizable female comedians.
While she used cannabis recreationally for years, she began speaking out more forcefully about the benefits of CBD when she needed relief from glaucoma. Her daughter introduced her to vaping, and soon, she was speaking out about CBD and women’s health.
“A Niche Market”
In the CBD market, she noticed the lack of products aimed at women, particularly for relieving menstrual pain. She was told that period cramp relief was a “niche market,” despite it being a monthly occurrence for half the population. Whoopi gave interviews to Forbes and Marie Claire, and she wrote an impassioned op-ed about CBD:
Much has been done here to heal the divide that tragically pitted some segments of society against others in the name of the cannabis plant. However, half of the population remains in the relative dark when it comes to specific applications related to their biology. Many women still believe that legalized cannabis products are all about getting stoned or high. Nothing can be further from the truth. In this age of feminist awareness, it’s important for women to realize that our needs are as unique as a budding flower.
