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

Olivia Alexander starting Kush Queen CBD in her family garage.

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.

CBD and Flu Season: Olivia’s Consumption Diary

CBD and Flu Season Prep – Get My 5 Tips For Staying Healthy

Flu season is upon us, there is no denying it! It’s that time of year where a cough and sneeze can send me into deep panic. I’ve been on the fence for years about the flu shot. Do I? Don’t I? It’s kind of crazy that it depends on who you ask. In my current CBD and flu season immune-boosting preparation routine, I stick to the basics. 

Here’s a walk through of my immune system boosting routine to ward off colds, flu and other ailments. In my CBD consumption diary you can see what a typical week looks like for me during this time of year.

Olivia Alexander talking about using CBD to boost the immune system.

CBD is My Go To For Immune System Support

One thing is for sure, CBD helps keep my immune system strong AF. Back when I was on a lot of pharmaceuticals, my immune system was compromised because the medications were affecting my white blood cell count. 

This made me prone to catching everything including the dreaded flu. After two bad flu seasons where I was completely taken out for two weeks at a time, I developed a serious CBD and flu season regimen. I am happy to report *knocks on wood* that I have been able to avoid getting the flu for the last two years. 

In regards to using CBD in this setting, one of the biggest things I think people miss when it comes to this time of year is that you have to up your daily dose. In the words of Drake “ALL THE WAY UP!” 

My CBD and Flu Season 5 Step Prep Breakdown

  1. Serious Hand Washing – This step is surprising always overlooked. If you are out in public, be mindful of regularly washing scrubbing your hands. I try to go by the 45 second rule and get everything from palms to fingernails. 
  2. Essential Oils – It’s no secret I believe in and love using essential oils. Every Kush Queen product is based on targeted effects delivered by essential oils for a variety of uses. My go-to for this time of year is the Shield for Immunity blend which is inspired by the 15th-century legend of four thieves.
  3. Baths – Submerging your body in warm water has multiple health benefits that go well beyond leisure. You’ll find me taking a bath almost every day this time of year. 
  4. Vitamins – Having a good balance of minerals and vitamins is crucial to giving your immune system the fuel it needs to fight off infection. I’m not known for having the most balanced diet so I cover the necessities with daily vitamins. 
  5. CBD Loading – Think carb loading like before a workout but with CBD. I up my daily dose and use a mix of delivery methods when I’m trying to keep my immune system healthy. 

CBD is so much more than making great products to me, it’s also about how you use it within your daily life. So many of us now have access to CBD, but don’t know how much to use. Here’s a week inside my CBD infused life to give you insight into how the cannabinoid works for me!

Olivia Alexander’s CBD Consumption Diary

Sunday November 3, 2019 – A Stay At Home Day
6:15am

My little cloud son, Reggie wakes me up early. After I feed him I dose my coffee with our 1000mg Bäre Tincture. One dropper is 33mg of CBD. I also pop in my vitamin gummies as I start my Sunday. 

3:30pm 

I did chores all day so I am feeling pretty gross and in need of a hot shower! I jump in the shower and use my Soaked shower gel. The rich lather and bright tangie scent invigorate me for the rest of the afternoon. I’m feeling refreshed!

10:45pm

I have 2 Gummies RX before bed with my nightly edible for sleep. Each CBD gummy is 25mg bringing my dose to 50mg. 

Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 100mg of CBD

Kush Queen Soaked Shower Gel lathered up in the shower.

Monday November 4, 2019 – Typical Workday

8:15am 

After my morning Shower with Soaked, I lather up my face in Defynt. Then follow it up with our alice and olivia x kush queen collab CBD body lotion. Monday morning’s call for a triple threat treatment, chill on the inside means chill on the outside! 

11:30am

A bunch of Monday crap (no need to sugar coat) comes my way and I find myself feeling super stressed. Stress is a KILLER to your immune system and increases your risk of getting the flu. Running a business is non-stop problem solving and adapting, so I keep a 1000mg Bäre in my purse at all times. When I feel anxiety and stress coming on, I have 2 droppers of 1000mg Bäre for a 60mg dose of CBD. 

9:00pm 

A day like today calls for a high dose CBD bath bomb! I soak in our 100mg Shield For Immunity CBD bath bomb. This bath contains a mix of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils known to boost the immune system. The cinnamon really gets me every time and I feel so deeply relaxed, I head straight to bed.

Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 220mg of CBD

Tuesday November 5, 2019 – Work From Home Day

5:45am

It’s an early morning with my puppy son and I slept wrong. My neck is KILLING ME. For me that means a topical and oral approach. First I apply Melt CBD Lotion to my neck. Then, I take 5, 25mg CBD GummiesRx. One of my favorite benefits of CBD is the fact that it’s a known anti-inflammatory agent. Anytime I have inflammation, I increase my dose.  

12:30pm 

I’m not feeling so great, so I decide to work from home today. Acknowledging that my pain has reached a more serious level, I medicate with THC. 

9:45pm

My energy is low and the bed is calling my name. I rub my body down with alice and olivia x kush queen cbd body lotion and the lavender helps ease my mind and drift to sleep. 

 Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 180mg of CBD, 164mg of THC

Wednesday November 6, 2019  – Crazy But Typical Workday

Full transparency here! I had a crazy day at the office and forgot to log my consumption. I know I had 2 CBD gummies in the morning. 

Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 50mg of CBD

A CBD and Flu season must have is Bäre CBD Tincture.

Thursday November 7, 2019 – Crazy But Typical Workday

For the second day in a row, my day took me over. I used to really get down on myself when this happened, but I’m practicing acknowledgment and acceptance. 

9:30pm

I need a CBD bath. After sitting in traffic all day, my body and neck is a mess. So I draw a bath for one of our new high dose 200mg CBD Bath Bombs in the Relax blend.  

10:45pm

I forgot my morning dose of CBD, so I double up on my night dose. One full dropper of Bäre and 3, 25mg CBD GummiesRx put me right to sleep. 

Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 300mg of CBD

Friday November 8, 2019 – Late Night

7:30am

I realize I’ve been in contact with people that were sick so I add an emergen-C  to my morning routine. In the shower, I scrub my entire body with our Renew CBD Sugar scrub and then I wear our CBD primer Foto Blur under my makeup for the day. 

12:45pm

Today was looonnngggg. I got home way past my bedtime. When this happens, I have a mandatory before bed bath and then lather down with Melt CBD Lotion. I use a 200mg Sleep CBD Bath Bomb and the level of relaxation and ease I felt before bed is why I make Kush Queen CBD products!

Kush Queen CEO, Olivia Alexander talks CBD and Flu Season

Conclusion

I write this series to help people understand how I consume CBD. While we see lots of information about CBD in general or what pain points to use CBD for, most people (even daily users) are still trying to figure out how much CBD to take.  

When it comes to CBD and Flu Season, I up my daily dose intake and check in with myself regularly. Stay healthy out there friends!   

If I had to pick one Kush Queen CBD product to use during this time of year, it would hands down be our Shield for Immunity CBD Bath Bomb.

Grab one today!

How to Use CBD – Olivia’s NYFW Travel Diary

CBD is inarguably all the rage as you can access products nearly anywhere in person or online. Yet so many people don’t know or understand how to use CBD or why they should use Kush Queen products daily. My philosophy in regards to cannabinoids is preventative and consistent use. As an every day, multiple times a day user, I believe in keeping my endocannabinoid system nourished. Today’ I’m sharing a recap of my recent trip to New York for Fashion Week. 

Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine the places and spaces Kush Queen would take me. One of those places is New York Fashion Week to celebrate the launch of our collaboration with alice+olivia. Fashion Week. New York. Kush Queen. I am still shook.  

NYFW CBD Travel Diary

I use cannabis to live my life free from mood stabilizing pharmaceuticals which requires me to think through my life and plan ahead. Upcoming travel always means I up my daily dose and stay mindful of my sleep patterns. So much about any type of cannabis use is about finding what works for you by learning from others. Here are the notes from my NYFW travel diary.

The Pre-Game – Planning and Adjusting My CBD Dosing

Traveling and changing time zones can be one of the biggest triggers for me. Pre-flight and airport anxiety always creeps in 72-36 hours before take-off. A few years ago, I built out a CBD routine to ease into traveling. Trust me, you want to give this a shot if you share the same type of pre-travel feelings. 

My pre-traveling CBD ritual includes: 

  • Gummies RX, in the morning and at night the day before my flight. I also keep these with me at all times just in case I need to take the edge off mid travels. 
  • A pre-flight CBD bath. I swell up on airplanes, so I use our new 200mg alice+olivia Bath Bomb to prep my body for the long flight and help ease my pre-flight stress. 

I love the higher dose CBD bath bomb because it’s stronger than our regular doses. It’s like carb-loading before a long workout; I was about to be exposed to germs, plane air, and a time zone change. Plus, floating in the bath is always a time I take for myself to clear my mind and bring myself into the present before traveling.

Sunday, September 8, 2019 – The Day Before the alice + olivia Presentation

Late Afternoon

I arrived at our amazing brownstone in Brooklyn and notice my post-flight swelling wasn’t as bad as usual, must have been my pre-flight CBD bath bomb. I take a full dropper of Bäre before heading to dinner, which is about a 33.3mg dose of CBD. Ahhh – comfy shoes (check), cute outfit (check), mind at ease (check)! 

(Late) Night Time

My fashion week looks arrived straight from the alice+olivia showroom. I popped a Gummies RX CBD gummy before getting fitted to keep my pre-show jitters from creeping in. After my fitting, I showered with our Soaked CBD shower gel and then lathered up in our alice+olivia CBD body lotion before heading to bed. No chance for bad sleep, aching feet or a restless mind to steal my slumber. 

Monday, September 9, 2019 – alice + olivia presentation

Mid Morning

A pre hair and makeup dose of CBD is always what I need. Anytime I am putting a full face of makeup on I wear our Defynt CBD Skin Serum and Kingdm CBD Primer under my make up. Many people ask why they should use CBD in their makeup routine? 

The 3 main reasons to use CBD with your makeup routine:

  1. CBD is a known anti-inflammatory
  2. CBD is anti-bacterial
  3. CBD helps reduce redness. 

Mid Day

Arriving at the alice +olivia presentation is like a scene in a movie. Sophia Ritchie was posing on the carpet before me. Luckily, I had 4 CBD Gummies RX gummies in the car, which is a solid 50mg oral dose. The show is filled with incredible clothes and people; all of my senses were stimulated. What an incredible experience I will never forget. 

Also seems like NYFW needs to pour some CBD on it more than anyone!

Mid Day

It’s our day off exploring in Brooklyn. I have never seen Dumbo, but love the history and charm of the area. We had a beer and bite and then we explored a shop nearby with CBD products. I decided to try a CBD beverage called Recess while we explore the area and trekked over the Brooklyn bridge. A light and refreshing taste in a cute can, but not sure if I would buy again.

Before Bed

My feet are ravaged from wearing heels the day before and then walking most of the city. I lather them up in Melt CBD Pain lotion before bed and put on some socks. I can instantly feel my feet cool and my pain fades away. 

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 – Photoshoot Day

Morning 

Back in hair and make up again for a photo shoot. I toss two droppers of Bäre CBD Tincture into my cappuccino. My makeup artist Lauren lays a velvety smooth layer of Kingdm CBD Primer on before she starts on my look for the shoot. 

Late Night

I had a busy day with the shoot. Time for a super dosed bath with the alice+olivia 200mg CBD Bath Bomb and CBD Bubble Bath.  

Thursday, September 12, 2019 – alice+olivia Collaboration Event Day

Early Morning

I was woken up by a problem in LA with our payroll. Outside of travel, my next biggest trigger as a business owner is the banking industry. At this point, for me, CBD isn’t enough, so I smoke a joint, take a deep breathe and assess possible solutions. Things get resolved relatively quickly given the time zone change. Now we start to prep for the alice+olivia collaboration launch event. 

Early Evening 

Time for the alice+olivia x Kush Queen Meatpacking CBD Mocktail party. I had about 4, 25mg CBD mocktails, so you could say I am feeling GOOD. Keep an eye out for our upcoming alice+olivia events in La and Aspen – you need to get your hands on these mocktails!

Friday, September 13, 2019 – Head Home

Too Early in the Morning

My flight was at 4:45! Yes, you read that right. I’m crazy and I am on an early AF flight back to LA. No one should be up this early. I can’t be nice. So I take 2 full droppers of Bäre and sleep the entire way back to LA. 

The Aftermath 

Once I returned home, I had only 72 hours before I had to go to Hall of Flowers, a cannabis B2B show in Santa Rosa, CA. I also had to attend a wedding, so I could not and did not get sick. Sure, once I was home I ate 150mg of THC edibles and slept for 16 hours, but I didn’t catch anything. 

I always rely on CBD to help me through these work benders. Cannabinoids deliver an equilibrium I feel in my body and I am grateful that I have it in my life to help me be my best self. 

CBD is a great tool to help with traveling and non-stop work. As you read in my travel diary, I use Kush Queen products in a variety of ways, depending on what’s going on in my life. I start by thinking through my triggers and building my CBD routine out from there. 

Kush Queen Presents: My Green Room LLC

By: Megan Lyn Farley

When Kush Queen decided to open itself up to Wholesale clients, we had no idea the effect it would have on us. We have been so inspired by the overwhelming number of small business owners who show up and support us, and the Kush Queen brand. We count ourselves lucky to have some powerful, educated, cannabis activists all over the country sharing our products with their customers. We just couldn’t resist sharing some of these hardworking entrepreneurs with you!

Today we are featuring one of our very first Wholesalers, My Green Room LLC out of North Carolina. Thanks to their fearless, passionate and kind-hearted leader, Joellyn Woodward, a brand new audience of people have been able to learn about and experience the benefits of CBD!

Joellyn, the owner of My Green Room, is a 10-year cancer survivor, Mother, Grandmother, and Newlywed!! Congrats are most definitely in order!! Besides her obvious love of all things Hemp, she enjoys NCAA Basketball, Krishna and bonfires. Her desire to help others has been life long, and it is no surprise that she found a way to do just that, every day, at her shop.

How it Started

Joellyn didn’t choose to open her shop on a whim. After using cannabis to help with her Cancer, Chronic PTSD, Bipolar 1 and Chronic Panic Attacks, she knew she had to spread the word. She put in the time to learn about the plant and its benefits so that she could share her knowledge with others. She had dreamt of opening a Cannabis dispensary for years, but because of the Cannabis laws in North Carolina, it just didn’t seem possible. During a family vacation to Myrtle Beach, she stumbled upon a little shop selling CBD products and felt a rush of joy. She knew the time had come. Hemp was federally legal and she was ready to start selling! She did the research, found brands she believed in and by January of 2018 she was in business.

My Green Room started out selling at Craft Shows and Bike Rallies. Joellyn shared her favorite CBD products with a new audience and people took notice. After stumbling upon Kush Queens CBD Bath Bombs by a fluke chance in early 2018 she knew they would become a staple among her customers and has been carrying a variety of Kush Queen products ever since.

In the Summer of 2018, My Green Room officially opened their first brick and mortar shop. A 400 square foot spot in the back of a building. Less than 6 weeks later they were upgrading to a space double the size, right out front! On April 20th of 2019, they made yet another upgrade, this time to a 3,000 square foot facility! They are home to the first (and currently only) hemp smoking bar and lounge in the area. Their rapid growth is proof that people are falling in love with CBD, and there is no slowing down in sight.

The Struggles

It is important to note that running a CBD business is no easy feat. While hemp is federally legal there are still a number of roadblocks facing brand owners and retail shops. From having her merchant accounts shut down, her money withheld from her, her social media accounts being deleted, high percentage fees at every turn and pressure from local law enforcement, Joellyn has experienced many of the struggles first hand. Lucky for us, and for her loyal customers, she can’t be stopped! She rolls with the punches, bounces back stronger and continues to push forward. Why? Because she believes in and understands the value of what she and her team have to offer their community.

The Payoff

Not only has CBD allowed Joellyn herself to improve her mental health, quit tobacco and get off a variety of medications, but it has allowed her to help so many others do the same.

“Watching people start living a better quality of life makes all the spreadsheets worth it,” says Joellyn. My Green Room has helped 29 people (and counting) regain sobriety from hard drugs and pills. They have created jobs in a small and struggling county. Every day their team is educating people on the many ways CBD can improve lives. In turn, real peoples lives are being changed, for the better. Joellyn says “The best reward is hearing customer ‘s success stories.” That, right there, is the payoff.

For the Love of Kush Queen

When it comes to Kush Queen products Relieve, Melt and Defynt are among the favorites at My Green Room. Joellyn told us that Relieve was the first Kush Queen product she ever tried, she fell in love immediately and since using these products her skin feels healthier than ever! We freaking LOVE that!

When asked if she wanted to add a little something extra, Joellyn said this…

“Kush Queen is family. Being a female business owner, I look to the Queens as a model. KQ has extended us so much love, support and goes a million extra miles. With my husband needing a full liver transplant, the Kush Queens reached out to help.  My dispensary would not be nearly as successful if not from the incredible guidance and support KQ extends to My Green Room.”

*We are Blushing*

Honestly, there are no words to truly say Thank You to Joellyn and the My Green Room team. They have stood by our brand through thick and thin. When we were overwhelmed and working hard to expand with the growing demand of CBD, they were patient, kind and understanding. This is why we are so grateful to Wholesalers like My Green Room. We hope that you will reach out and show them a little love as well!

Building a CBD Post Workout Routine

Kush Queen Shop - CBD Post Workout Routine

Last Friday I stepped outside and was instantly met with the first 90 plus degree day of summer. My edges curled back, my thigh gap got sticky and for me, that can only signal one thing. The beginning of golf season! Yes, you heard that right, golf. The sport that has generally been associated with rich old white men, is the sport that this little brown girl has been playing since she was 7. Growing up in the scorching Texas heat, and then playing for four years during college in Georgia, I’ve had my share of long achy nights trying to recover from carrying golf bags for 6 hours each day. I wish I had Kush Queen back then to help me with the stress of playing golf, as well as a CBD post workout routine to help with muscle soreness recovery.

Kush Queen's CBD Post Workout Routine in 3 Easy Steps

3 Steps To My CBD Post Workout Recovery

It never fails that the morning after playing a round of golf I wake up feeling sore all over. The kind of soreness that makes you question why you ever choose to move your body in the first place. My neck is tight, my shoulders burn and my head hurts so badly I feel hungover. That’s when I know it’s time for my CBD post workout routine. Now that I’m an adult I’ve incorporated a routine for getting rid of soreness. This plan also works as a killer self-care routine after a stressful day of work or play!

Kush Queen Shop Bäre 500mg CBD Tincture

Step 1: Add CBD to your morning smoothie

I’m a creature of habit and that extends to my food. I have the same smoothie every morning. I know that might sound monotonous but try it out for yourself, and I think you’ll understand why I’m so crazy about it. 

  • 1 cup of frozen Blueberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tbs of nut butter (I prefer Justin’s Honey Almond Butter)
  • Dash of Cinnamon or to taste
  • 1 tsp honey (or you can soak dates, just make sure they’re pliable before blending)
  • 1-2 Droppers of Kush Queen BARE CBD Tincture
  • 1-1 1/2 cups of oat or nut milk
  • 1 tbs of chia seeds or flax meal (optional)
Kush Queen Shop CBD Smoothie with Bäre CBD Tincture.

Blend until smooth. Not only will the smoothie help to give you nutrients to feed your depleted muscles, but adding CBD will help with the inflammation from your workout and relieve any stress you might have so that you can start your day in a more calm state of mind. Bonus!

Step 2: Take a morning bath. I know, crazy right?

Who says baths are just for the evening? There’s nothing more luxurious to me than taking a hot bath, lighting some candles and putting on a podcast at 10 am on a Saturday. Well, that is until you add in our next step. Since my back is feeling like it’s going to start tweaking, I reach for the Kush Queen CBD bath bomb in RELIEVE. With 25mg of Pure CBD and notes of Organic clove, birch, and rosemary, this bath bomb helps me create the spa of my dreams in the reality of my apartment.  

Kush Queen Shop Relax CBD Bath Bomb, perfect for your CBD post workout recovery!

Step 3: Rub Melt on your aching muscles

After you finish soaking, treat your muscles to the cooling sensation of Kush Queen’s CBD Lotion, Melt. As soon as the Melt touches my skin I can feel my senses relaxing. Spoiler alert, after steps 1-3, my CBD post workout routine has me feeling like putty and so ready to dig into step 4.

Step 4: Stretch!

I’m a big believer in foam rolling. It hurts like hell, but once your muscles are nice and relaxed from your previous pampering, it feels like the perfect cherry on a day full of recovery. Stretching helps to keep your muscles loose and warmed up. It gives me an opportunity to breathe and clear my mind.

You don’t have to be a golfer to have a CBD post workout recovery routine. Try this out after your next crazy hard CrossFit or spin class. We ask a lot of our bodies and we need to make sure that we’re pouring love and healing back into it.

CBD and Tea: 12 Tea Inspired Recipes to add CBD to right now!

By: Megan Lyn Farley

Hi, yes, I am talking about tea again, won’t you join me? 

Honestly, coffee gets all the spotlight, but I am her to remind you that tea should not be overlooked. It can give you a gentle caffeine boost when needed, or it can lull you to sleep. It can be served hot, iced, dressed up like a fancy latte or turned into cookies. The herbal benefits alone should be inspiration enough to start incorporating tea into your life, and the versatility it has to offer is an added bonus. 

Obviously here at Kush Queen, we like to find all the ways to add CBD to our day, so here I am. The ways in which to utilize tea, much like CBD are endless, and I found some tasty (and some unconventional) tea-inspired recipes that you should definitely add CBD to.

It is honestly as easy as adding a few droppers of Bare Daily Wellness to the recipe to achieve your desired dosage. Pay attention to serving size and then choose how many milligrams of CBD you would like per serving. Each dropper of our Original Bare CBD Tincture offers just over 16mg’s of CBD, so you can use that to determine how many droppers you will need. 

After much research, thank you Pinterest, I have found 12 unique and enticing Tea-Inspired recipes that I think you should definitely try and definitely add CBD to. I was inspired by our very own CBD Bath Bomb Tea Collection, Obvi, so these recipes will be incorporating Matcha, Earl Grey, and Chai teas. 

MATCHA TEA INSPIRED RECIPES

1.Matcha Popcorn

While green popcorn may seem a little strange, It sounds delicious! I would recommend adding your Bare Daily Wellness drops to the Matcha topping blend. And while this recipe calls for making stovetop popcorn, which if you can, probably tastes way better, but feel free to make the Matcha topping and toss with your favorite microwave popcorn option!

2. Matcha Shortbread Cookies

The green color of these cookies in 100% natural from the Matcha powder! SO fun! These would be great for a Halloween Party, St.Pattys day, or if we are being honest, a basic Tuesday. You will want to add in your CBD tincture with your butter and take it easy. Adding too much oil may alter the consistency of the cookies. I would recommend starting with 2-4 droppers for the recipe to see how they turn out. OR you can replace half the butter with this Cannabutter Recipe

3. Matcha and Orange Smoothie

The citrus addition to this Matcha smoothie makes it bright and refreshing. While fall is just around the corner, the heat is still kicking, and this is a great way to cool down while enjoying a sweet treat and getting in loads of health benefits. You will want to blend all of the ingredients according to the recipe, THEN add in 1-2 droppers of Kush Queens Bare Daily Wellness and pulse for a few more seconds until fully incorporated. Pour it up and enjoy! 

4. Matcha and Chia Seed Smoothie Bowl

When you want all the goodness of a smoothie, but are in a spoon kind of mood, in comes the smoothie bowl. My favorite way to trick my brain into thinking I am eating ice cream. This recipe takes the goodness of Match and combines it with frozen bananas and avocado to bring you an ultra-creamy smoothie bowl experience. Top with Chia seeds for a health boost, and whatever fresh fruits, granola, and nuts you’re vibing with! You can add your CBD oil to this recipe by blending it into the smoothie, or by adding it to Granola if that is one of your chosen toppings. 

CHAI TEA INSPIRED RECIPES

5. Chai Tea Energy Balls

Energy balls offer a foolproof way to add protein to your diet while also satisfying your sweet tooth. You can easily adapt the ingredients to your taste preference, but this Chai tea inspired version seems pretty near perfection. Add 4-6 droppers of Bare Daily Wellness CBD oil into this recipe with the wet ingredients and your energy balls will have 4-6mg of CBD each. 

6. Chai Spiced Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies remind me of my childhood. Each bite is packed with nostalgia. Adding in Chai Spices honestly feels like the universe merging my current self with my child self to remind me that we are the still the same person. Too deep for an oatmeal cookie recipe? I don’t think so. I recommend removing ½ tbsp of butter from this recipe and adding ½ tbsp of Kush Queens Bare Tincture

7. Vanilla Chai Oatmeal

When you need a quick and fulfilling breakfast, oatmeal has your back. Protein-packed and unbelievably adaptable. There is an oatmeal option for almost everyone! This oatmeal takes the smooth flavors of vanilla and spices it up with some Chai. It’s a comforting combination to start your day off right. I would recommend trying this CBD Whipped Cream recipe to top your oatmeal! You deserve a dessert for breakfast kind of day! I promise. 

8. Chai Spiced Sweet Potato Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my ultimate comfort foods. Cake, for breakfast, duh! It always felt like I was getting away with something when I would sit down for a pancake breakfast growing up. As an adult, I have continued the tradition, proudly. These pancake stacks are a twist of the classic. Adding Chai Spices and Sweet Potato really switches up the vibe bringing you a pancake with a deeper depth of flavor. Include 2 Droppers of Bare Daily Wellness with the olive oil that already in this recipe. An easy peasy way to add some chill to your morning meal. 

EARL GREY TEA INSPIRED RECIPES

9. Earl Grey Cake with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting

Oh Dear Lord. This cake looks ridiculous! Subtle and decadent at the same time. A perfect flavor pallet you can turn to year around. The addition of the figs really got me. I’m a fig girl for sure! While this may be a more labor-intensive recipe, it will be worth the effort. For this sweet treat, I would add 2-4 droppers of CBD oil into the frosting recipe with the butter. 

10. Earl Grey Granola with Strawberries

Granola, like Earl Grey Tea, is incredibly versatile. It is simple to make, and easy to adapt to all tastes. You can then add it to parfaits, ice cream, smoothie bowls, serve it with milk, or enjoy it dry, fresh out of the oven. Those are just my personal favorite ways to enjoy granola, there are so many tasty uses for granola! Adding CBD to this recipe could not be easier! Just add 3-6 droppers of Bare Tincture to the mixture and toss well before baking. 

11. Early Grey and Blackberry Smoothie

This is an interesting flavor combination that really works. The smooth flavors of Earl Grey balance out the tart sweetness of the Blackberries. If you can get a hold of some fresh blackberries before they go out of season, I would definitely recommend stocking up! Just like with our Matcha Smoothie, you will want to fully blend your smoothie and THEN add your CBD oil and puls for a few more seconds until fully incorporated. 

12. Earl Grey & Honey Milkshake

If you are looking for a splurge-worthy treat to keep you cool, look no further. Loaded with a sweet and smooth flavor, this thick and creamy recipe can easily be adapted for a dairy-free diet by replacing just a few ingredients. Just like with your smoothies, you will want to blend this recipe per the instructions, THEN add your CBD tincture and pulse again for a few more seconds until fully blended. You can also top with this CBD whipped Cream for added herbal benefits and even more decadence. 

If you try any of these delicious tea-inspired recipes with our suggested CBD add-in, show us on the gram and don’t forget to credit the original recipe creator in your posts as well! The Tea-meets-CBD based possibilities are truly endless, so feel free to branch out and use some of these recipe techniques to create your own drinks and treats, packed with the herbal benefits that both tea and CBD have to offer you! And if you happen to prefer a simple cup of tea, milk & honey optional, well that’s okay too!

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!

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 CBD Lube (really) 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. 

IgniteCBD006.jpg

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.

Make Pleasure a Priority

Now you have clarity on what CBD lube is and how it can be used to generate more pleasure in your life. Add Ignite to your arsenal of arousal tools and be empowered to make your pleasure a priority!

2 Simple DIY Bäre CBD Tincture Face Masks

By: DM Blunted

I love the summer. The heat, swimming pools are open, barbecuing yummy foods on the balcony – all of it. But my skin, on the other hand, may say otherwise. For whatever reason, the summer brings out the worst in my combination skin…and I mean the worst. My t-zone area is so greasy but at the same painfully dry – and let’s not mention the breakouts along my temples. 

So being the self-titled “DIY Queen” I am, I mixed up a few masks with the help of Kush Queens Bare CBD Tincture! For the most part, these masks use ingredients that can easily be found around a kitchen and can be switched up depending on what your skin goals are! 

CBD oil, not hemp seed oil – is quickly becoming a staple in the beauty industry. It’s nothing short of a blessing for skin! A 2014 study showed, “CBD oil may help reduce various types of acne thanks to its ability to adjust how the body creates sebum.” Kush Queens, Bare Daily Wellness uses olive oil, which is an amazing anti-ager and reviver of sun damage as well. And because a few drops of olive oil goes a long way, only a small amount of CBD oil is needed to get refreshed skin! 

Masks004.jpg

Honey Oat Mask

Oats aren’t just high in fiber and good for cholesterol, they’re also super nourishing to our skin! Enriched with healthy fats and natural cleansers (saponins), oats give pores a gentle deep cleanse while leaving skin gently hydrated. Plus it’s great for anyone who has skin with high pH levels (dry and itchy skin) because oatmeal can help stabilize them. Raw honey is also a dear friend to the skin, hair, and nails – a natural exfoliant and moisturizer it leaves skin soft and glowy. But ya know, beware of any allergies you may have – especially if you’re allergic to bees, pollen, and celery! I really enjoyed this mask because it was so cooling on my skin! Unlike masks that dry tight, this oat mask softly molded to my face. 

  • 2 tablespoons of oats
  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey
  • 1 full dropper of Bare CBD Tincture
  • Enough water to make a spreadable paste 

Grind your oats! After grinding your oats, combine all ingredients and mix. Apply and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Admire that skin!

Masks003.jpg

ACV Clay Mask with Bäre CBD Tincture

For those that don’t know the power of raw apple cider vinegar or the “Aztec Clay” mask, you’re about to learn. Raw apple cider vinegar pops in every home remedy, from loc detoxes to ways to manage your diabetes, as well as ways to help with acne. It may also help unclog pores and smooth skin texture. The clay mask, which you’ve probably seen every on Instagram and Youtube at some point – lives up the hype! I swear I’m such a skeptic about anything, but I bought a jar of it last year around the holidays and I haven’t regretted once. The clay mask will reach down into your pores and rebuke the oil and dirt trapped within. It’s also a great hair mask for all hair types. Just be mindful that it does not go down your sink without a fight, a lived and re-lived learned experience. But you can throw into the grass and it will act as a natural fertilizer – it’s the circle of life baybee *Kawhi Leonard voice.* 

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of Aztec Clay mask
  • 1 full dropper of Bare CBD Tincture
  • Enough ACV to have a spreadable paste

Combine all ingredients in a non-metal bowl and mix with a non-metal spoon.* I like the consistency of a loose toothpaste, if that makes any sense. After getting it to your desired consistency, apply – once again careful not to use metal utensils. (* Bentonite Clay literally absorbs impurities and heavy toxins when applied, so if exposed to metal it will absorb the impurities from that and not from you!) Leave for 10-15 minutes, and rinse off with warm water. Yes, this dries very tight. Yes, your skin may be a little red for like 20-ish minutes afterward – but these are all momentary and will only reveal bouncy and refreshed skin. 

So sit back, kick your feet up and let these simple masks do the work for you!
