The Kingdm Foto Blur 250 mg CBD Primer uses Kush Queen’s exclusive patent-pending Amplifi™ nanotechnology, a process that creates CBD molecules as small as 25nm in size, which is 2,000 times smaller than pores, allowing the product to fully absorb so that the high levels of CBD can work deep into the skin. The unique formulation gives the primer a silky, serum-like texture that is super spreadable and lightweight, blurring pores and creating a smooth, perfected canvas for makeup application. Our formula doesn’t dry during wear, so your skin stays moisturized throughout the day. Use it before your makeup, but after skincare. KINGDM helps reduce redness, prevents breakouts, and leaves your skin velvety soft. We hope you’ll try it, we know you’ll love it! This is only the beginning!

Rainbow Roasted Veggies with CBD Garlic Butter

By: Kate Marley

rainbow veg 02B.jpg

June is always such a wonderful month—warmer weather, summer barbecues, and celebrating Pride month. When Pride rolls around, everything seems to be covered in rainbows, and it always makes me happy to see people celebrating who they are. Plus, many companies, including Kush Queen, rainbow-fy their products and actually donate portions of people’s purchases to LGBTQ+ organizations such as TransLifeline. It’s just such a wonderful way to spread love and joy.

Parades and celebrations often take us outdoors, and what better way to enjoy hot-weather foods and ice-cold beverages than at a barbecue with your dearest friends? I had to give up my grill when I moved from a house to an apartment, so I’ve been trying to find delicious indoor options that anyone with an oven can make. This week, I’ve settled on a recipe that’s super easy but crazy-delicious, and will hopefully remind you of all the summery, rainbow-filled joy that June brings.

rainbow veg 03B.jpg

This week’s Rainbow Roasted Veggie recipe with garlic-herb butter uses Kush Queen bäre Daily Wellness CBD oil, but you can also use this homemade CBD cannabutter instead. I recommend adding the oil or cannabutter to the garlic-herb portion of the recipe, which will ensure maximum potency of CBD, rather than roasting the veggies with the oil.

I chose red bell pepper, carrot, yellow crookneck squash, broccoli, and red cabbage to make my veggie rainbow, but there’s so much colorful produce to choose from! I considered adding a few more kinds of vegetables, like kabocha squash and green beans, but I ran out of space on my baking sheet. Also, make sure the veggies are chopped to be similar sizes to ensure even roasting.

rainbow veg 05B.jpg

Toss your veggies in a bowl with a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil. If you’re interested in a hint of barbecue grill flavor, add a few dashes of liquid smoke to your oil. I love the mesquite wood flavor, though, admittedly, liquid smoke just isn’t quite the same as a classic charcoal grill. Spread them out on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Squash and peppers will cook faster than broccoli and carrots, so check in on your oven periodically to make sure nothing’s too blackened. I, however, enjoy a little crispiness to my roasted veggies, so a few burnt edges make me happy.

How simple was that? But wait, we’re not done yet! Time for the best part:

rainbow veg 07B.jpg

Garlic butter! I could coat everything in garlic butter and I’d be the happiest camper. I melted 1 tbsp. unsalted butter with a spoonful of minced garlic, dried parsley, and a pinch of salt and pepper. After mixing, I added two droppers of Kush Queen CBD oil. If you prefer, you can melt CBD cannabutter into the butter mixture instead of the oil, and the flavor won’t be overwhelming when combined with the garlicky deliciousness.

This recipe makes approximately two servings, so if you’re serving a crowd, feel free to double and triple the ingredients. Make sure you spread the veggies out onto multiple baking sheets, or even roast one sheet at a time if your oven temperature is inconsistent. Piling too many vegetables on top of each other will cause uneven cooking and it’s awkward when a third of your food is burned and the other two-thirds are mushy.

Toss the veggies with the garlic butter, and you’re good to go! I’ve made this recipe three times since I initially wrote this, that’s how much I love it. Rainbows, veggies, summer vibes, and Kush Queen? Please and thank you.

How this CBD Anti-Serum helped me ease into my 30s

By: JS Brunson

Joy Defynt 006.jpg

As a still relatively young millennial, I have some thoughts on the state of womanhood. For as much progress as we’ve made in being seen as independent and free-thinking humans; like letting our arm hair grow out and not smiling in every damn photo, there still seem to be more products than ever promising us that by using it we’ll somehow feel freer. Unfortunately, I hadn’t had much luck in finding that ideal product, until now. And I’ll tell you early on, that that product is Kush Queen’s Defynt CBD Anti Serum

Made with 100mg CBD, this serum is like applying a 60-minute meditation session directly to your face. Talk about a #lifehack, am I right! But let me back up a little bit and explain why you need this serum in your life. 

Joy Defynt 004.jpg

I recently turned the big 3-0. If I’m being honest I was terrified. I had so many assumptions about what being thirty would mean. Wasn’t I supposed to have it all together by thirty? The perfect guy, the perfect job, a house with multiple rooms, a cute dog and an Instagram worthy proposal on the way? Well, I do have a great boyfriend, but the rest are just ideas that have gotten as far as my Pinterest boards. I spent the last month of being twenty-nine stressing out! I was depressed about where I thought I should be and then upset with myself for not checking my privilege and getting down in the first place. Oh, it was a vicious cycle. 

As I’m sure you know stress plays a very big part in how our skin reacts. I don’t say this to be annoying, but I’ve always had pretty good skin. Thank my long-ago African ancestors for that, but during that time my stress was causing some irritation on my skin. I was so dry my lips began to crack, I had the darkest under-eye circles, and generally looked consistently exhausted. 

I knew I needed to make a change. I needed to treat my skin better. That’s when I decided to try out the Defynt Anti-Serum. Now, I’m not a product junky by nature, I still use the same Origins face wash that I first discovered in high school. Hey, if it isn’t broke why fix it right? So needless to say I was a bit skeptical that this new product would do much for me now. 

I got up the next morning ready to try out the serum. I washed my face (using my Origins thank you very much), toned with Dr. Thayers witch hazel and applied a dime-sized amount of the Defynt Serum to my face. Within a few moments, I could instantly see my puffy eyes calm down. It was like my face opened up and smiled after months of neglect. 

What I didn’t expect was how calming the CBD made me feel. I woke up with a slight headache and after applying the serum my headache cleared up and I felt like I could actually get my day started on a positive note. I made sure to apply a light moisturizing sunscreen after the serum to lock in all the goodness.

Joy Defynt 001.jpg

I’ve been using the Defynt Anti-Serum for a month now and not only has the overall puffiness of my skin gone down, but I’m less grumpy in the morning. Added bonus according to my boyfriend! 

So hey, maybe I don’t have it all figured out. But now that I’m safely and deeply into my 30th year of life, I’ve realized that adulthood is what you make it. There are no rules, there are no standards. I live my life to make me happy, and that now includes taking good care of my skin.

Ignite CBD Lube: Heighten Your Pleasure

By: Angela Viesti

IgniteCBD002.jpg

CBD lube is having a moment right now, and rightfully so. Known to stimulate arousal and increase the intensity and frequency of orgasms, CBD lube is becoming a bedside staple for self-exploration and deepening intimacy with partners. 

There are a number of intimate products containing CBD online and in retail stores, which makes it hard to know which one to choose. This blog will explore Kush Queen’s Ignite CBD Infused Lubricant in-depth and help you make informed decisions when stepping into the world of CBD lube.

IgniteCBD005.jpg

Oil vs. Water-Based Lube

We are all unique beings with ever-changing needs and desires. The exploration of our sexuality is a personal journey that continuously evolves throughout our entire lives, regardless of age. The products and toys you use during intercourse and masturbation should be taken into account when selecting a CBD lube. 

Do you use latex condoms? What about silicone toys? If the answer to either question was yes, then choose a water-based lube like Kush Queen’s Ignite CBD lube. Oil-based intimacy products can cause silicone toys to breakdown and latex condoms to tear–increasing the risk of STIs and unwanted pregnancies. Certain oils can also throw off the vaginas pH levels and cause yeast infections.

Some oil-based intimacy products aren’t even actual lube. They’re simply infused oils, more like traditional topicals. Ignite uses ingredients commonly found in lubricants, none of which are harmful or toxic. 

IgniteCBD007.jpg

What’s Inside Counts

Each ingredient in Ignite was selected with safety and effectiveness in mind. The formula is free of parabens, glycerin, and petrochemicals and doesn’t stain. Hemp-derived CBD oil is modified using Amplifi Nanotechnology, which converts the CBD molecules into nano-particles that are tiny enough to absorb into the bloodstream through the skin. 

The CBD molecules in oil-based lubricants are larger and absorb much slower, often taking effect 20 minutes or longer after application. Using nano-CBD not only allows the formula to be water-based, but it also allows the onset of Ignite’s effects to happen rapidly, in under a minute for most people.

More Pleasure

The effects of Ignite can be likened to feeling “warmed up” almost immediately after applying it to the vagina, clitoris, and/or rectum, even before foreplay or masturbation begins. Cannabis is a vasodilator, which stimulates blood flow when applied to these areas, causing a heightened sensation. The tissues in the vagina and the anal cavity are highly absorbent and highly sensitive. This increased blood flow and sensitivity makes CBD lube the perfect recipe for mind-blowing orgasms and heightened pleasure without the use of hormones. 

Aside from inducing more pleasure, CBD lube is widely used for managing discomfort experienced during intercourse. CBD has relaxing effects that help to ease tension and make sex more enjoyable. Womxn should not be inhibited from experiencing enjoyable sex and intimacy due to health conditions, further adding to the undue burden of the feminine. The Kush Queen brand has always stood for feminism and inclusive values, and Ignite is just one of the many ways the brand elevates the collective while shutting down the patriarchy. 

Take Pride in Your Pleasure

Access to medical cannabis would not have been possible had it not been for the activism of the LGBTQ+ community during the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 1990s. The cannabis industry is standing on the shoulders of those who lost their loved ones, their health, and their lives at staggering rates. 

To give back to the very community we all have to thank for their sacrifices, Kush Queen is donating 20% of sales from the 2019 Pride Collection to Trans Lifeline, a non-profit organization that provides support to transgendered individuals nationwide. 

You can take pride in supporting a fantastic cause while taking your pleasure into your own hands (or your partner’s!) when you order Ignite CBD Pride Edition while supplies last.
