 Cannabis products uniquely designed for women is a growing product category that will be highlighted at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) in Los Angeles, CA.  Taking place September 26-29, 2018 at the LA Convention Center, the 5th Annual CWCBExpo will feature a “Wellness, Women & Cannabis,” panel led by Maya Elisabeth, Co-Founder, of Whoopi & Maya, a brand of medical cannabis products co-founded by Whoopi Goldberg and geared towards women who experience menstrual discomfort.

CWCBExpo is the only event in Los Angeles that features products and education on all aspects of the legalized marijuana industry—adult use and medicinal—as well as industrial hemp.  “Wellness, Women & Cannabis,” on Friday, Sept. 28th, is part of the CWCBExpo robust conference program that provides end-to-end education for those just entering the cannabis business and for established businesses looking to advance to the next level in cultivation, processing and retailing.

            “It has taken a long time, but with cannabis, the education piece is so important. People have been told things that are not necessarily true about cannabis,” said Maya Elisabeth.  “I view cannabis as a healing herb and superfood.”

            Panelist scheduled for the “Wellness, Women & Cannabis,” include Mistress Matisse, Nina Parks, and Ashley Asatu. The session will explore how the budding female marijuana flower can increase wellness in women while easing many of the discomforts unique to half the population. Cannabis products uniquely designed for women that promote self-care, sensuality and the sustainability of a woman’s health will be discussed.
