Rainbow Roasted Veggies with CBD Butter

By: Kate Marley

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.

CBD Butter Makes Everything Better, Trust Me On This

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.

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:

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.

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!

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!

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!
