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)

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.

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!

3 Tea Inspired CBD Bath Bombs to Elevate your Self-Care Routine

I am most definitely a coffee person, but I do love me a good cup of tea. I take mine with milk and honey served up in my favorite Alice in Wonderland mug. It is an experience for me and has become part of my self-care routine. Drinking tea has so many benefits for our health and wellbeing, and every type of tea offers a little something special for you and your body to enjoy. You can sip for energy, sip for stress relief, sip for a good night’s sleep and even for your skin and organ health. That is a lot of benefits! So when I heard that Kush Queen launched a tea-inspired CBD Bath Bombs Collection, my heart fluttered. I can bathe in my tea too? Yes, Please! 

Bathe in the benefits of CBD and Matcha with Kush Queens CBD Bath Bombs

But wait? Do I want to bathe in tea? Does it have any benefits as a topical or is it just for fun? These were some of the questions swimming through my mind, so I, of course, decided to do a little research. What did I learn? Bathing in your tea… highly recommended. Many of the properties in tea leaves also have amazing benefits for your skin and wellness. When paired with the already beneficial ingredients that make up Kush Queen CBD bath bombs – Like High-Quality CBD, Epsom Salt, Baking soda, and essential oils – the benefits are only increased!

So what are these benefits I speak of? I will get to that, but first I want to chat about Dry Brushing. If you have not heard of Dry Brushing, it is definitely something worth looking into. It is the simple act of using a natural fiber brush, preferably with a long handle, to massage the skin without moisture. Starting at your feet you will gently rub your skin clockwise in a circular motion, slowly working your way upward. Not only is this process relaxing, but it is a great way to prepare your body to receive maximum benefits from your bath time. It exfoliates the skin, increases blood flow, stimulates the lymph nodes, detoxes the body, and can even reduce the appearance of cellulite. Your skin will feel fresh and new before you submerge yourself into that tub sized cup of tea. Such a great way to take your self-care to the next level. 

Now back to those beautiful Kush Queen Tea Collection Bath Bomb Benefits!

MATCHA CBD BATH BOMB

Matcha Tea actually contains chlorophyll which is a wonderful detoxifier and has been known to remove harmful toxins from the body as well as fight free radicals. Matcha may also assist in decreasing your body’s sebum production. This can help to treat and prevent body acne and may even add a layer of protection from harmful UV rays.

EARLY GREY CBD BATH BOMB

Earl Grey Tea contains Vitamins B1, B2, E and H, all known for their abilities to keep your skin feeling soft and smooth. You will also find Antioxidants in this tea which will keep your skin healthy and hydrated while fighting those pesky free radicals.

CHAI TEA CBD BATH BOMB

Chai Tea is my favorite tea, and not just because I’m basic! The cinnamon and Clove in your Chai tea (and Bath Bombs) can help to improve blood circulation which will reduce swelling and puffiness and give you a nice glowy complexion. This tea is also ultra-hydrating and may assist in reducing the signs of aging skin! 

Photo: @quartermoonco for Kush Queen

PRO TIPS: 

  • Pour yourself a cup of tea to enjoy while you soak. Your skin will receive all those amazing benefits from the inside out. (And you can feel really fancy while you do it). 
  • A Spice Girls playlist may also enhance these benefits by filling you up with joy and empowerment vibes. 
  • For those of you who prefer not to soak in the tub surrounded by loose tea, which I personally LOVE, that does not mean you can’t enjoy these Classy AF Bath Bombs! Grab yourself a large organza drawstring bag, place the bath bomb inside it, and add to your tub. You will get all the Bath Bomb goodness, but the bag will hold onto the tea leaves for you. Like a Tea Bag for your tub.

I hope that you found some helpful self-love inspiration here, and are excited to start your own tea inspired skin-care routine. However you choose to incorporate tea, your body will thank you for all those tasty benefits!

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!

Let them eat “Ugly” Cake: A Summer Inspired CBD Recipe

By: Rochelle Herman

I have an unapologetic and infinite sweet tooth. I will gladly skip dinner so I can have pie ala mode or a delicious infused brownie ala mode. But it’s summertime…and I completely agree, some desserts are just too heavy during those stifling Summer months, plus you don’t want to ruin that summer bod you’ve been working on. 

That’s why this summer dump cake recipe, or ‘Ugly Cake’, is perfect for indulging your sweet tooth while keeping that summer bod. Dump cakes, by title alone, are meant to be so easy you just dump the ingredients in a pan and bake it. Foolproof. The name “ Ugly Cake” came from a friend of mine, who recently was lovingly enjoying the cake and stated, “This Cake sure is Ugly, but it’s delicious.” Having had made, and enjoyed it half a dozen times now, I and my friends would absolutely say it turns out ugly every time. 

So, how could a cake possibly be good for your summer figure? It’s cake right?! Pure sugar?

Well, this cake is made with a box of Angel food mix, a bag of frozen berries, whatever berry screams summer to you, and some sparkling water. To make it CBD infused, just add a few droppers of Kush Queen bare CBD tincture. This is actually an imitation of an old Weight Watchers dessert, and it turns out to be a super low-fat option.

This is a recipe I’ve used for years. Back before I really knew how to cook or had the “courage” to cook from scratch. Before I had the trust in myself to follow copious amounts of directions. I have in fact destroyed many a delicious idea in my past. Dill in homemade spaghetti sauce for instance…was a terrible and disgusting idea. The coveted idea being a delicious homemade spaghetti sauce. Sometimes it’s nice not to have to think about it, and just dump and go. Enter my “Ugly” Cake creation.

Now, how you choose to share this as Ugly Cake is up to you. It could be served a playful joke because you know you’re not a trained baker, and not everything you make turns out bakery floor ready. Served lovingly and dressed up to your liking with powdered sugars and whipped creams.

OR… you could use it as a telling sign, a way to stick it to your guest, so to speak. Maybe your horrible in-laws are coming over, or your bully of a boss, or even a “friend” who you know really just comes over to smoke all your weed. A real master mooch. WELL… Let them eat Ugly Cake. And really make a point to say it to them. “Here, enjoy some Ugly Cake!” As you smirk and haphazardly drop it on the table. Cheeky, but also tasty.

How ever you choose to enjoy it, here’s how you make it.

Grab any loaf pan or casserole dish you have. Dump a bag of frozen fruit in it. I chose a bag of Mixed Berries which had, blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries. Don’t worry about greasing the pan first. Just dump. Add a bag of Angel food cake over the frozen berries. Angel food cake is what will keep this summer-friendly, as it is light and airy and lower in carbs and sugar, but any box of cake will do. Open a can of Sparkling water, I chose some with Lemon flavoring to add another flavor kick because any dessert with lemon in it is a good idea to me! Pour the sparkling water over the cake mix and frozen berries. That’s it. 

If you’d like to make this recipe CBD infused, then after you’ve added the sparkling water, you will add a full dropper (or more to your dosing desires) of Kush Queens bare CBD tincture and mix it together. Just grab a spoon and give it a Gentile stir, making sure the CBD is fully incorporated, evenly through the cake mix. 

THEN…bake it at 350 for 50 min. It may not look pretty, but it will be devoured by you, and any friend or family member you choose. The only thing you’ll need to worry about is if you’ll have enough for later, when the midnight munchies hit.

The lightness of the Angel Food Cake combined with the brightness of the mixed berries and lemon, make this one of my go-to summer recipes and one I don’t feel the least bit guilty about eating all on my own!!

Empowering the Solar Plexus

By: Angela Viesti

Solar Plexus 02.jpg

The solar plexus chakra, also known as the third chakra, is located behind the navel. It’s Sanskrit name, Manipura, means “illustrious gem” and is symbolized by a yellow 10 petaled circle with an upside-down triangle in its center. The last of the physical chakras, the solar plexus is home to our feelings of personal empowerment, control, and abundance. The “gut feeling” we often refer to, when our intuition communicates through our bodies, stems from this chakra. 

Keeping this chakra in balance is key to feeling a sense of security, self-confidence, and self-assurance. The solar plexus is associated with the fire element and signifies our ability to take action and build momentum in our lives. The phrase “being fired up” is a nod to the sensation of heat in the solar plexus when we feel excitement and enthusiasm.

Imbalances in this area can manifest as lack of control and fear of being overpowered. Perfectionism, people-pleasing, and overactivity/being busy are often signs of a shrunken solar plexus. Obsession with gaining power, controlling behaviors, and an overinflated ego is associated with an enlarged third chakra. 

Because our chakras operate as a holistic system of energy centers, balancing each one is essential to overall wellbeing. For a refresh on how to balance first and second chakras, check out the blogs on the root and sacral from earlier this year.

As always, there is no single way to maintain balance in our lives, we can utilize a variety of alternative therapies to reach a homeostatic state. 

Trust Your Gut

Based on its location with respect to the body, the stomach and digestive system are associated with this energy center. Issues with weight, gastrointestinal problems, and poor gut health are symptoms of an imbalanced solar plexus. Good nutrition is a tool for optimizing all chakras, especially the third. Foods that enhance the solar plexus are:

  • Citrus fruits (especially lemon)
  • Bananas
  • Pineapple
  • Mango

Choosing fresh, organic foods when possible and avoiding processed foods, refined sugar, alcohol, nicotine, and animal by-products can help clear a blocked solar plexus.

Get Fired Up 

Since the solar plexus is associated with the fire element, building heat in the body through movement increases clarity and balance in this area. Yoga poses, like Boat, Bow, and any Warrior pose, activate this energy center, while restorative poses like Child’s Pose and Corpse, or Savasana, help calm and soothe it. 

Exercises that work the core, like Pilates and Barre, create fire energy in the solar plexus and strengthen more than just our abs–they increase our sense of self and personal mastery. Other heat building workouts, like High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and kickboxing, help build a sense of empowerment and self-confidence with practice and growth over time.

Scents of Empowerment

Targeted aromatherapy is a super simple way to bring the solar plexus into balance at home and on the go. Try these essential oils in a diffuser or DIY spray for third chakra healing:

  • Bergamot
  • Rosemary
  • Lemongrass
  • Cedarwood
  • Chamomile 

If you want to clear your space and balance your energy, add the plant equivalents of the above essential oils to a sage bundle for smudging.

If you really want to create a vibe, there’s a bath bomb experience for that! Combine the Crystal Cult Manipura bath bomb with Kush Queen’s Citrus bath bomb in hot water for a heat-inducing, sense-awakening soak. Choose a mantra, like “I Can” to meditate on while playing gentle music targeted toward the solar plexus.

Crystal Healing

After your Citrus Chakra bath, you’ll have a pink aventurine to add to your crystal collection. Other stones to help balance the third chakra include:

  • Citrine: Associated with fire element; activates self-confidence; increases mental clarity and courage; acceptance of abundance
  • Green Calcite: Fire & water elements; grounds and focuses energy; promotes healthy gallbladder, liver, pancreas, and intestine; helps adjust to change
  • Gold Tiger’s Eye: Fire element; creates a sense of safety and protection; helps with remembering dreams and mental clarity; release jealousy and build self-confidence; invites blessing and good fortune

When choosing crystals for healing, finding stones that speak to you is most important. Above all, crystals are tools to help strengthen your intuition and relationship to self.

Namaslay, Queen!

A healthy solar plexus is your best ally for slaying it at work and in life. I hope this blog helps you discover your power and build a practice that works in favor of your highest good. Namaste, Queens!

Summer Salads with CBD Dressing

By: Kate Marley

When you think of summer foods, what comes to mind? Grilled foods, crisp tropical fruits, ice cream?

For me, when hot weather rolls around, I get intense cravings for salads. Cold, crunchy, healthy salads that make you feel fresh and light. There’s something always so delightful about raw veggies in the summertime. However, I also know that salads can get boring sometimes, especially if you eat them all the time. 

Today, I’m going to share three amazing vinaigrette/oil-based recipes made with Kush Queen CBD oil, and show you what types of salads I used them for.

Chimichurri for Steak Salad

Chimichurri is a raw, parsley-based sauce originally from Argentina. It’s overwhelmingly fresh and sharp and works so well when paired with red meat, citrus, and salt. And it’s actually pretty easy to make, as long as you have access to a blender!

I just tossed all of my ingredients, minus the CBD oil, in a small blender, and pulsed until it reached a nicely chopped, semi-emulsified consistency. You may have to add more olive oil as you go. I also definitely added a little too much garlic the first time around, which hits you right in the face when it’s raw. But hey, it’ll definitely keep you healthy.

I added two full droppers of CBD after my other ingredients were blended.

I used my chimichurri to top a giant steak salad, packed with raw vegetables and even an elote-style corn salad. My sauce was thick and potent and made every bite delicious.

Easy Lemon Vinaigrette for Greek Salad

This vinaigrette is the simplest of the three because there’s no blender involved, and honestly, you don’t even have to pre-mix the ingredients if you’re feeling bold. 

It’s just olive oil, CBD oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. That’s really it! It’s the perfect base vinaigrette to add to, with ingredients like cayenne pepper, cilantro, etc. I kept it to the basics for this batch but don’t be afraid to experiment.

I used my lemon vinaigrette for a fresh and summery Greek salad. Crunchy cucumber, peppery onion, sweet tomato, and salty feta are all it takes to toss together something delicious. I also recommend adding avocado or olives for an extra kick. Well, now I know what I’m making for dinner later.

Raspberry-Orange-Poppy Vinaigrette for Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

I absolutely love fruit-heavy vinaigrettes. They add sweetness and tartness with more depth than lemon juice alone. This pretty-in-pink dressing gets its flavors from orange juice, orange zest, and fresh raspberries. The poppy seeds are optional if they’re not your jam, but they’re mostly tasteless and you get the added benefit of fiber and vitamins. 

I throw my fruits, juice and half of the olive oil in the blender first, leaving out the CBD and poppy seeds.

Strain the mixture through a sieve to remove all the raspberry seeds. It doesn’t add a very nice texture if you leave them in, in my opinion.

Add the remaining olive oil, the CBD oil, and the poppy seeds and whisk well. Sometimes raspberries and oranges end up on the tart or sour side. If you find your dressing is a bit more mouth-puckering than you’d like, it’s super easy to add a little bit of honey or sugar until you’re happy with the sweetness. And that’s it! 

I used my vinaigrette for a fruity, vibrant salad. I topped peppery arugula with fresh peach, tangy goat cheese, and red onion. I made a decently large batch of dressing, and it’s great for different types of salads—try it with grilled chicken or even seasoned tofu, if you’re vegetarian!
