The First 4 Years of Kush Queen – CBD, Visibility, Gratitude

Kush Queen, CBD, and Small Business Saturday. 

The past 4 years of Kush Queen have been an incredible journey of love, growth, perseverance, and of course, CBD. Waking up every day to share our passion in a rapidly growing market, we have experienced our highest highs and some courage-required lows. But I can attest to every second being worth it. 

Take a read through our reflections and a photo scroll through memory lane!

What a Year for CBD Momentum and Market Conditions

Kush Queen's first warehouse facility.

2019 will always be a historic year for CBD. With the Farm Bill passing in the Senate and the House in early December 2018, the new year promised to be an exciting growth year for CBD.

At the time, Kush Queen was experiencing incredible growth. Our team was evolving, constantly improving and making production adjustments to ensure we are creating the same high-quality CBD experience with every single handmade product.

Mid-summer, payment processing in the CBD industry came crashing down. Many in the industry went months with no ability to accept payments online and had to face tough decisions to keep their business afloat. 

Through the grit and determination of our team and the patience and loyalty of our customers, Kush Queen made it through that chapter. As a small business innovating in a rapidly expanding industry we cannot say thank you enough to our customers, fans, friends, and family for the support. For example, on the eve of our first big mainstream event, one of our lows transformed right into one of the highest highs – BeautyCon LA

Kush Queen Is Visibility, Wellness, and Innovation

In the same spirit of getting our dream up and running like Amazon, Google, and Disney, we started Kush Queen in our family garage. The Kush Queen brand was born out of our sister company, The Crystal Cult. The Kush Queen was a vape that turned into the beginning of a community. So many kush queens were out there but the cannabis industry’s male slated products left room for a newcomer with a different vision. 

Kush Queen grew out of a community of like-minded individuals wanting to create a different type of space – a creative outlet for cannabis-derived health and wellness.

Our vision is to create a space for anyone to gain access to high-quality health and wellness products made from the healing cannabis plant. 

It’s All-Hands-On-Deck

It takes a village, including you! We are a small, family-operated business. We’ve got a tight-knit crew of people that all believe in a dream of making things better. From CBD to our workplace vibe, the Kush Queen team is dedicated to one another and making the best CBD products on the market. We’re savages but like the kind you want to invite over to sesh with and meet your mom! With every challenge we face, we turn inward, use our products, innovate and move forward!   

Thank You For Supporting Our Small Business

Our passion for this plant and its power to transform lives keeps us motivated! Thank you for believing in our dream. It is with gratitude we operate every day from the heart and it is our privilege to have you as part of our family. 

The irony of small business Saturday is that it was started by a corporation. A corporation that will not do business with CBD companies. The irony is really so 2019. 

And with that, we pour some CBD on it! Stock up on CBD with the holiday sale going on now.

Wearing CBD Primer Under Your Makeup – 3 Reasons Why

With the recent rise of CBD’s popularity, people think adding CBD to anything, especially CBD primer and makeup is just a trend. What most people don’t know is the science behind using CBD in makeup. All CBD use should start at the intersection of the delivery method and the cannabinoid receptors that naturally exist in your body. CBD is delivered to your body in the form of cannabinoids and when your body receives and processes cannabinoids, it nourishes your body’s endocannabinoid system. That’s when we experience the benefits of using CBD. 

When it comes to using CBD in makeup the most important factor to consider is your skin which is one of the best delivery methods and the body’s largest organ. That’s why KINGDM Foto Blur CBD Primer uses the surface of your face, aka skin as its delivery method. 

Why should the CBD delivery method matter to you? Especially in CBD Makeup… 

The delivery method is how cannabinoids are ingested into your body. For example, an oral delivery method could be a gummy or tincture because you consume the cannabinoids through your mouth. A CBD bath bomb uses a full body topical delivery method because you submerge yourself in the cannabinoids. When evaluating any CBD makeup product, it’s important to understand the delivery method to determine the potential effectiveness of the product. If the delivery method isn’t clear, chances are the cannabinoids (in most cases, CBD) won’t get into your body.    

For example, CBD in mascara. How does the delivery method and your body’s cannabinoid receptors meet up? Don’t get us wrong, we love CBD and cannabinoids at Kush Queen, but the science has to be clear.

3 Reasons Using CBD Primer Under Your Makeup Is A Smart Move

As soon as you apply KINGDM Foto Blur CBD Primer, you’ll feel the silky formula soften your skin and see it mattify your pallet. And while that’s what everyone loves about our primer, let’s get into the benefits of having CBD as our star active ingredient. 

1. CBD is a Known Anti-Inflammatory

The number one reason to wear CBD Primer under your makeup is because CBD fights inflammation. We know the cause of most skin issues like acne is inflammation and we also know that wearing makeup all day can cause inflammation. By placing CBD under your makeup you can help fight inflammation while wearing makeup. 

2. CBD is Anti-Bacterial

Exposing our skin to bacteria from our hands, phones, and furry friends is happening at all times. Makeup complicates it even more and is why our full glam lewks are known to not be so great for our skin health. A new study on CBD as an anti-bacterial has been released by the Centre for Superbug Solutions at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland in Australia. Dr. Mark Blaskovich, Ph.D., senior research officer at the center says “The first thing we looked at is CBD’s ability to kill bacteria.” “In every case, CBD had a very similar potency to that of common antibiotics.”

3. Reduce Redness and Skin Impurities

Our patent-pending process creates a water-soluble nano CBD and also uses Vitamin E which has a host of known skin benefits. Plus, our nano CBD particle is 2,000 times smaller than your pores and absorbs directly into the bloodstream. This combination increases the bioavailability of the CBD in your body and in this case directly on your face. Kush Queen Customers have reported redness and skin impurities decrease.
