Marijuana For Menstrual Cramps? New Jersey May Just Say Yes

Medical Marijuana Posted Apr 10 2016

New Jersey has one of the most restrictive medical marijuana programs in the country with only 10 conditions that can qualify patients. Last week lawmakers introduced legislation that would include menstrual cramps in the qualifying conditions, allowing women to seek treatment for their pain. The motivation to include menstrual cramps comes from Whoopi Goldberg and Maya Elisabeth as they introduce their new line of products directed towards women's painful time of the month. The products will be available first in California at Maya's boutique, Om Edibles, where she will be selling several new products including the soothing new THC-infused bath salts. Products are expected to be in by April 20th.

“Every month women experience pain and discomfort associated with their period. Cannabis is a wonderful remedy, and combined with other superfoods and medicinal herbs, can provide the type of relief many women need,” said Ms. Elisabeth. She is the owner of Om Edibles, founded in 2008 and is one of the most innovative manufacturers in the burgeoning California medical cannabis market.
