We Tried Cannabis Products For Our Period Pain And They Actually Helped

    Fifty percent of the population has period pain. Whoopi Goldberg is doing her best to help stop it.

    Earlier this year, it was announced that Whoopi Goldberg was partnering with Maya Elisabeth to launch a line of cannabis medical products, aptly called Whoopi&Maya, designed specifically to ease women's menstrual pain.

    To give you a bit more background, here's a lowdown on the products we were going to test out.

    Before we got started, we were lucky enough to be able to chat with Whoopi Goldberg herself about her business.

    Whoopi told BuzzFeed, "You know, if a guy had these cramps, if a guy had this issue, there would be all kinds of shit out there for them. This was done in order to find a way to relieve cramps. So please, try it. If it works for you, tell a friend. If it doesn't work for you — not to worry — we'll continue to try and create something that may."

    So we did just that — we tried them.

    Meet Sam who is long-time sufferer of PMDD, and absolutely no stranger to the effect that hormones can have on someone's life.

    And meet Lara, a woman with endometriosis and other medical conditions which cause her periods to be hell on earth.

    Lara loved the rub and felt like the bath salt might've changed her life.
