Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. MLK

As Martin Luther King Jr.'s day arrives, it feels far more necessary than ever to honor him. His words and legacy of service hit with a different brevity after the past year and few weeks of 2021. 

And we don't mean honoring his work with an Instagram tile quote, we mean, to honor him with action. Sara Aridi’s weekend article in the New York Times reminds us that Martin Luther King Day is a federal holiday "dedicated to a day of service when Americans are encouraged to heed Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words: “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve.”  

If 2020 taught us anything it's that we are far from achieving equality, and the recent attacks on our capital show the deep division in America today. 

The truth is Dr. King’s dream is only available to a select few. Every single day black and minority people and communities live in a reality that white people do not know. All of us are being called to become everyday activists. Every moment is an opportunity to change the world around us for the better. 

Martin Luther King Jr. Quote

Self-Care and Community Care Lead To Service

Dr. King and activists that are walking in his steps root their work in the idea that America can live up to its highest ideals. For that idea to be realized, it’s going to take all of us working together. 

Community Care has been a critical part of the Kush Queen ethos since the beginning, now we need you, as a part of our community to get involved.

Our philosophy is simple, if you take care of yourself and are functioning well, you can then take care of others in your community. Just like our philosophy with cannabis self-care and our belief in daily cannabis use to feed your endocannabinoid system, we believe in regular community care. 

Activism and self-care should be done as a part of our regular life and not a reaction to sickness or a negative news event. In all times, but especially in challenging times, you must foster great love and action for yourself and your community.  

Educate Yourself and Take Action

The experience of being anything other than white in America is a different experience than the mainstream expectation and those are the hard facts all people need to acknowledge. In our world, understanding and empathy start with education, especially with experiences outside of your own. 

In honor of Dr. King, check out some of his lesser-known work, explore black culture, art, and history. 

“As we look forward with hope and optimism to a new administration, we wanted to shine a spotlight on the inheritors of Dr. King’s legacy, the activists who are continuing his never-finished struggle and carrying his dream forward.” 

Our pals at Ben and Jerry’s, who are always doing good work put together this list of 10 Activist Continuing MLK’s Work and it’s spot on. Join us in getting to know some of the leaders of today’s fight for fairness, justice, and freedom.

Honor with Action and Operate from Love 

Turn MLK Day into a day “on” for your community. Service helps to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, address social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."

AmeriCorps has an easy to use tool for finding volunteer opportunities in communities across the US. Use their Find a Volunteer Opportunity search to find an opportunity in your community! Or, on the MLK Day of Service, find an organization you care about and pledge to serve all year long.

The Kush Queen team supports organizations like BYP 100, Social Impact Center, National Expungement Week, Asylum Connect

Conclusion

The last few years have shown us that when we work together we can make positive changes in areas like racial and social equity, LGBTQIA rights, worker rights, and voter oppression; Dr. King would be proud of that community action!

Join us in honoring Dr. Martin Luther King’s life work and take action in holding America to its highest ideals. Happy Martin Luther King Day!   

If you’re lucky enough to dodge the common skin issues most of us face in the winter months, I envy you. However, if you’re like me and have struggled with dry, tight, inflamed, and even flakey skin, keep reading. 

3 CBD Skincare Tips To Keep Your Skin Nourished and Glowing

My winter skincare routine has changed over the years, especially since I’ve moved from climate to climate. I grew up on the east coast and lived in NYC for many years, moved to inland Los Angeles, and now live right by the beach. 

With all that change, I’ve had to adapt my routine. As a makeup artist, I’ve noticed that changing up skincare routines based on seasons or moving to a new area isn't something my clients always think about. Whether you’re moving or the weather is just getting colder or dryer where you live, your skincare routine might need a makeover. 

Here are a few steps in my current winter routine to help you jazz up yours. 

1. Moisturize right when you get out of the shower

When your skin is exposed to the steam from your shower, your pores open and stay open for a few minutes after you get out. This is when your skin can best accept products like serums and moisturizers. 

Right after lightly patting my face dry, I use 3-4 pumps of Kush Queen’s Defynt CBD Skin Serum all over my face and neck. The combination of hyaluronic acid, CBD, and other vitamins help me retain moisture and keep my redness in check daily. I wait about a minute for the serum to sink into my skin and follow up with a cream moisturizer that is a bit thicker texture than what I might use in the summer months. 

Kush Queen Defynt CBD Skin Serum

2. Use a CBD mask 1-2x a week

My favorite mask in the winter months is a homemade one. I always stay stocked with Kush Queen’s bäre CBD tincture to ingest but you can also use it in combination with a few other natural ingredients for a moisture-rich face mask! 

What you’ll need: 

Start by mashing half of the ripe avocado in a bowl, add about 5-10 drops of bare CBD Tincture, and drop in a teaspoon of Manuka honey. Mix this up and layer it on your face for a good 15 minutes. It may not look pretty but your skin will be thanking you afterward.

CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory that will help calm your dry irritated skin and it’s no secret that avocado’s fatty acids will provide some heavy-duty moisture. The combo of CBD and Manuka honey's antibacterial and antimicrobial properties deliver 2x the plant-based benefits to help acne and flaking skin heal faster.

3. Don’t forget about your body skincare!

My face isn’t the only part of my body that suffers from dry skin in the winter months. I try to keep the rest of my skin moisturized (especially my arms and legs) so I don’t turn into a scaly snake.

While I’m in the shower, I use Kush Queen’s Renew CBD Sugar Scrub to exfoliate my body. I love this scrub because not only does it smell heavenly, the combination of CBD and Jojoba oil polishes my skin and keeps it moisturized, unlike some other scrubs that can dry you out. Along with the sugar base, dead skin is removed and your skin will feel fresher than ever when you get out of the shower.

I follow this up by using my Kush Queen x Alice & Olivia CBD Body Lotion all over to lock in that moisture. Again, like your face, the lotion is more effective if you use it when your pores are open fresh out of the shower!

Kush Queen Renew CBD Sugar Scrub

Conclusion

I hope some of these tips help keep your skin in tip-top condition during the winter months. It’s important to listen to your skin; if something that has worked in the past isn’t any longer, it may be time to switch it up. Remember CBD is your skincare friend. 

Stay glowing, queens!

Q: What was a full-circle moment that happened in your life during 2020?

Verita: This year, my girlfriend & I wanted to spend more time together and connect more with our family.

Angie has been a part of KQ since the early days! Now, she lends a hand in just about every department!

Q: What was a full-circle moment that happened in your life during 2020?

Brandon – Kush Queen Shipping

If you ever get your KQ order and think, “Wow that was fast,” Brandon probably packed your order! 

Q: What was a full-circle moment that happened in your life during 2020?  

Brandon: Y’all may or may not (how?) know I love music, but back before Thanksgiving, an old friend hit me up about a rap project he was doing and he wanted me to feature on it. Yesterday the track was released and I haven’t made a rap song in about 9 years. COVID brought me time to rekindle a passion or two!

Q: 3 Things That Make You Feel Grateful Going Into The New Year?

Brandon: Family, Friends, and having this year to reflect honestly. This year has been trying for all of us. But it has been nice to focus on the future knowing the year is ending.

Q: What's your mindset going into 2021?

Brandon: Make everyday count for something. It’s been easy to remain stagnated this year and there’s more to look ahead to!

Q: Your favorite KQ products? 

Brandon: Soaked and Melt. Literally lifesavers.

With the extra strength series, 1:1 CBD and Delta 8 THC bath bombs freshly launched, you might be thinking, “should I try Delta 8?” Let’s dig into why Delta 8 THC is very much worth a try and the top 3 reasons most people leap from CBD only to accessing more of the cannabis plant.

If Delta 8 THC is a totally new cannabinoid for you, check out the first post in this series, The Science and Effects of Delta 8 THC

In this post, we’ll explore why you should try this new minor cannabinoid and incorporate its powerful benefits into your wellness routine.

Three Reasons to try Kush Queen’s 1:1 CBD and Delta 8 THC Extra Strength Series

1 - Delta 9 THC Is Too Strong, You Don’t Like Feeling Stoned

Just about everything exists on a spectrum and cannabinoids are no exception. Some folx need a little more from their hemp products, while others may need less from a THC only product. 

Delta 8 THC is a more stable and less intense cannabinoid than its older cousin Delta 9 THC. This translates into the full-body effects of Delta 8 THC.

The effects are typically free from anxiety, paranoia, and couch-lock, but still rife with calming, mood-enhancing, and uplifting qualities. 

Our new extra strength series features a 1:1 ratio of CBD and Delta 8 THC. The presence of Delta 8 THC, CBD, and targeted essential oils creates a deep entourage effect, which amplifies all effects. And results in full body relief. 

The 1:1 CBD and Delta 8 ratio is ideal for anyone who wants a step up from broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD products or someone looking to take a step down from the effects of THC only products. 

Kush Queen's Extra Strength Series, 1:1 CBD and Delta 8 THC Bath Bombs

2 - CBD Alone Isn’t Enough, You Don't Feel Any Relief

Our needs are all unique and change with time as we age or evolve our wellness practices. 

Sometimes we outgrow the things that once worked well for us and need something new to stand in its place. Cue the 1:1 CBD + Delta 8 THC bath bombs for an elevated soak that has everything you expect from your favorite Kush Queen products. 

The entourage effect adds a heightened boost to the power of the cannabinoids and essential oils in each bath bomb.

If you’ve been missing something in your CBD routine, our extra-strength series just might be the remedy you’ve been looking for.

Or maybe you’ve never gotten relief from CBD only products. If your body is in a constant state of tension or stress, you may need a stronger cannabinoid ratio to experience full-body relief. Feeling seen? Sounds like you need to give our 1:1 CBD + Delta 8 THC bath bombs a try.

In early 2020, Kush Queen launched a line of minor cannabinoid-rich gummies and we’ve been working around the clock to keep them in stock ever since. 

When we introduce any new cannabinoid, we begin by doing our research, developing, testing, and refining our products. 

Along with that, we are committed to providing you detailed information and educational content with the launch of each new cannabinoid. 

As this whirlwind of a year comes to an end, we’re excited to introduce the next minor cannabinoid we’re featuring in our product line: Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as Delta 8 THC. 

This blog is the first in a three-part series on Delta 8 THC that will give you an overview of this emerging compound and what you can expect from it.

The Science Of Delta 8 THC

As you’ve heard us say in the past, CBD and THC are just two among many cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp. 

What you’ve come to know as THC is actually Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol and is abundantly present in the cannabis plant. THC is associated with giving cannabis its psychoactive effects. Now it’s time to meet Delta 8, THC'S gen Z younger cousin.

Think of Delta 8 THC as “THC-Lite”, or a slightly milder, hemp-derived cannabinoid with a host of great benefits, like relieving pain and reducing anxiety. It’s like the equally cool, woke and yet slightly more refined younger cousin of THC. 

When you break down the science, “the molecular difference between Delta-8-THC and its famous cousin is small, but it’s enough to change how it binds to the brain” and how your body processes the cannabinoid, reports Dr. Peter Grinspoon with Doctor's for Cannabis Regulation.

Molecules of Delta 9 THC and Delta 8 THC

 

For your body to process any cannabinoid, the molecules must bind to “receptors that are part of your endocannabinoid system – a network of receptors and chemicals that influence a variety of experiences including, mood, pain sensation, or stress.” 

Delta 9 THC molecules bind very tightly to the receptors, while Delta 8 molecules doesn’t bind as well. 

Gabriella Gobbi, a professor at McGill University’s Department of Psychology puts it this way “It’s for this reason that people think it’s less psychotropic – it has less of the effect of a [full on] high.” 

The Effects Of Delta 8 THC

When compared to THC, most people that have tried Delta 8 THC describe the full-body effect as a lighter high with lower levels of anxiety and paranoia. Ultimately this makes Delta 8 THC a great middle-ground between pure CBD and cannabis-derived THC edibles and tinctures.

Delta-8 THC works synergistically with other plant compounds by activating the entourage effect. When combined with CBD-rich hemp extract and our targeted essential oil blends, Delta 8 THC enhances the strength of each components' effect. 

Think about it this way: CBD is known to relieve pain and curb anxiety, as is Delta-8 THC. 

For example, our Relax essential oil blend of lavender, chamomile, and frankincense was designed to help ease mental stress and soothe physical tension in the body. When these elements are all present together (CBD, Delta 8 THC, and the essential oil blend) they bring out and strengthen each other’s effectiveness and potency. 

Kush Queen's Relax 1:1 CBD and Delta 8 THC bath bomb

The Legal Status of Delta 8 THC

The 2018 Farm Bill paved the way for hemp-infused products to take the wellness and beauty industries by storm. While CBD has obviously dominated in the new product category, interest in minor cannabinoids is on the rise and shows promising potential, although research on these compounds is limited. 

Since hemp-derived Delta-8 is legal in most states, it’s a more accessible cannabinoid for folx who live in states without legal cannabis. And because of its similarity to Delta 9 THC, it’s about the closest you can get to an extra-strength experience from a hemp product. 

Kush Queen's Extra Strength Series Features CBD and Delta 8 THC

As part of our extra strength ratio series, we are excited to launch our 3 community favorite bath bombs in a 1:1 CBD to Delta 8 THC ratio!

Each ratio bath bomb features 25mg CBD + 25mg Delta-8 THC and your choice of our Sleep, Relax, or Relieve essential oil blends.

Living in the Pacific Northwest brings equal amounts of amazing and dreary to winter. To match my mood and immune-boosting needs of the season, I change up my daily CBD routine from October through March.

Since I work at Kush Queen, I’ve had the luxury of trying all the CBD, testing delivery methods and doses to find my perfect CBD routine. In this post, I share how I use Kush Queen products on an average winter day.

And yes, you can still be a KQ fan girl and work at the company, look at me :D 

My Daily CBD Routine Starts Every Morning

Time to Nourish My ECS and Set the Vibe

I’m a bit of an early bird, so my feet hit the floor between 6:00 - 6:30 am. First up, my morning routine, which includes the usual bathroom duties and my first topical dose of CBD. 

After washing and toning my face, I apply Defynt CBD Skin Serum. Defynt deeply moisturizes and calms my skin while giving the perfect daytime glow. I’m a bit of a renegade when it comes to skincare -  somedays I use Defynt, and that’s all, and others, I follow my CBD skin serum with a moisturizer.  

From the bathroom, I head straight to the kitchen where my wife is usually up, making our coffee. But first, a large glass of water and a dose of bäre CBD tincture.

Kush Queen's bäre CBD Tincture 

Taking bäre consistently every morning nourishes my endocannabinoid system, which supports immune health and assists with maintaining homeostasis throughout the body. I’ve tried all bäre doses (500mg- 5000mg) and found my sweet spot with the 1000mg dose. Taking a whole dropper’s worth gives me about 33mg of CBD in the morning.

This dose of bäre has a unique ability to help me start every day in just the right way; equal parts chill and focused.

From here, I crack open my computer and start my day at Kush Queen.

Kush Queen CBD Products I use every morning:

Afternoon Break and Mood Boost

CBG Gummies To the Rescue

The post-lunch slump is something that we can all relate to. Whether it’s low energy or motivational wane, I used to treat these feelings with coffee. Now, I grab a Gummies Rx Bliss CBG:CBD gummy or two. 

Kush Queen's Flight of CBD Gummies Holiday Gift Set
These gummies are the perfect afternoon pick me up! CBG, a lesser-known minor cannabinoid, delivers an uplifting feeling while the 15mg of CBD relaxes me just enough. I pair my Gummies Rx Bliss with a walk around my neighborhood for some fresh air.

Within about 15 minutes, my gummy kicks in, and the rest of my day glides right along!

Kush Queen CBD Products I take most afternoons:


Nighttime Calls For Total Relaxation

This CBD Trio Hits Different Before Bed

I’m a bath lover, and even before Kush Queen you could find me in the tub a few nights a week and on Saturday mornings. So, at least two nights a week I soak in a high-dose CBD Bath Bomb

Kush Queen Holiday Edition CBD Bath Bomb

My current go-tos are Relieve 200mg CBD Bath Bomb, Sleep 200mg CBD Bath Bomb and the Holiday Edition 200mg CBD Bath Bomb. This full-body topical CBD application gives me full-body relief that eases tension and stress from the day and puts me in a state of relaxation before bed.  

After my bath, I always apply Melt CBD Relief Lotion to my neck, lower back, and feet. If your work is computer-based like mine, Melt’s feature ingredients (cooling menthol, warming capsicum, and camphor oil) get to work almost instantly on my everyday aches and pains like magic.

On nights when I’m struggling to detach from the day or feel the woes from a long workout, I add Gummies Rx Sleep CBN:CBD into my routine. These gummies get to the point and put me in a dreamy state quickly.

If you have trouble relaxing before bed or getting to sleep, give Gummies Rx Sleep a try. These gummies contain CBN, a minor cannabinoid that has been compared to a sedative or sleep inducing effect. 

Kush Queen CBD Products I use at night time:

Conclusion 

At Kush Queen, we make products that we love.

Every day, I use Kush Queen CBD products to boost my mood, manage stress, and give me full-body relief when I need it.

I encourage you to test different products based on your daily wellness needs, try different delivery methods, and dial in what works for you to create a daily CBD routine that nourishes your body and mind.

If building a daily CBD routine is something new, check out our holiday CBD gift sets, these are perfect for finding favorites. 

My two recs are the Ultimate Daily Wellness Set and the Flight of Gummies.

Let’s face it - this year will not be your average cold and flu season! CBD products should always be a part of your daily wellness routine, but during this icky time of year, we are upping our CBD intake and making sure we never miss a dose. 

How does CBD help when you are sick? CBD is a known anti-inflammatory that feeds our endocannabinoid system (ECS) and works with our central nervous system to regulate our most important body functions: sleep, mood, appetite, and our immune system. 

Nourishing your ECS is a great preventative action to avoid getting sick and can promote faster healing when your body is in the process of fighting off a cold or the flu. 

At Kush Queen, we use the power of three to layer our CBD routine and boost our immune system during cold and flu season.

A Layered Approached To CBD and Cold and Flu Season

The Power of Tincture

CBD is an immune booster that’s full of natural antibacterial properties that can help fight secondary bacterial infections that can develop from the cold and flu.

CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can also help open up sinus passages and assist with breathing. For an oral delivery method, our Bare CBD tincture line comes in 500mg, 1000mg, 2500mg, or 5000mg doses! If you are battling with a cold or the flu we suggest going with a higher dose choice: 2500mg or 5000mg doses. 

In addition to CBD’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, our tincture can help take the edge off when you are feeling under the weather. When the full body chills take over, bare is our go-to tool for body relaxation.

The Power of Hot Baths

Baths have so many scientifically proven benefits. When your immune system is under attack, hot baths can help fight viruses by elevating your body temperature and promoting better sleep which is key to keeping your immune system fully functioning.

You know we love a good soak any time of the year, but a hot bath when you are feeling ill can boost your mood and provide much-needed relief. To kick your bath’s benefits up a notch, add a Kush Queen CBD Bath Bomb to your bath. 

The Perfect CBD Bath Bombs For Cold and Flu Season:

We combine essential oils with CBD to create a powerful entourage effect that transforms your bath into a full-body topical soak. While soaking, your skin absorbs all the wellness benefits of the CBD and essential oils which, results in full-body relaxation. 

Getting out of your warm cozy bed will feel like a big task if you are sick, but feeling the full-body topical benefits of CBD and increasing your circulation will make a noticeable difference in your (sick) day. 

The Power of Hand Hygiene

Now more than ever, hand hygiene is top of mind! It’s important to Wet, Lather, Scrub, Rinse & Dry your hands to prevent the spread of germs. Washing your hands regularly while you are sick is equally as critical as using this tool as a preventative measure. 

Kush Queen Soaked CBD Shower Gel

For an energizing, immune-boosting dose of CBD every time you wash your hands, grab our Soaked CBD Shower Gel. Soaked delivers three things: a moisture-filled lather thanks to the aloe juice base, a solid dose of transdermal CBD with every wash so the molecule gets into your bloodstream, plus a refreshing citrus scent. 

For those times when water isn’t readily available, check out our hand sanitizer just in case! It’s not infused with CBD but does have a gentle formula that won’t dry out your hands. Yay! 

Stock Yourself with CBD Prevention

The best way to avoid cold and flu season is with mindful preventative actions! Stay prepared by adding CBD into your wellness routine with our signature bath bombs, topicals, and ingestible products.

It’s time for another edition of Serious Bathers Club! Only this version isn’t about aesthetics or soaking in a gorgeous tub--it’s about taking your bath a level deeper with intention. 

Our CBD bath bombs contain powerful plant molecules, targeted essential oils, and soothing colors that enhance the bathing experience. To take it a step further, we designed a ritual perfect for this time of year that focuses on gratitude and self-care.

Welcome to the Serious Bathers Club: Gratitude Soak! 

Create The Vibe For An Intentional CBD Bath

Our gratitude soak is designed to be a sensory experience for the body, mind, and spirit. With that in mind, here is everything you need for your soak.

For this interactive CBD bath, you’ll need a few things:

    Some extras you can use to elevate this bath to another dimension include: 

    • A joint, glass of wine, a cup of tea, or bäre CBD Tincture 

    • Candlelight to add to the vibe

    • An essential oil diffuser to enhance the sensory element of this ritual (we recommend a pumpkin spice blend or your choice of essential oils to complement the bath bomb you’re using)

    • Smudge your bathroom to remove all negative energy as a final step to cleanse the vibe of the space

    Set The Intention

    The most important element of this ritual is to set an intention of gratitude.

    • Before you enter the tub, take 3 deep breaths with your eyes closed and thank yourself for dedicating this moment to your well being.

    • Next, express gratitude to the Universe for anything you're thankful for: the planet, your health, your family --anything that comes to mind. 

    • Then, channel a mantra to use for the remainder of your soak. It can be as simple as “I am grateful” or “I am abundant”, or can be specific to wherever you are in this moment. You do you, boo.

    Before entering the bath, hit the playlist. We highly recommend keeping your phone or iPad out of reach and away from the tub for this bath experience.

    The idea here is to bring as much focus within as possible and exclude distractions. Our playlist runs about 46 minutes from start to finish, with recommended soaking time at about 30-40 minutes.

    Ready, Set, Soak

    Once you are in the tub, breathe deep to inhale the essential oils steaming up from your bath. Pay attention to how the water feels on your skin, which scents are most invigorating, and how the music enhances the vibe. Focus on getting out of your mind and into your body.

    If your mind wanders, be kind to yourself and bring your attention back to your breath. Allow each inhale and exhale to be filled with expressions of gratitude, thanks, and grace. 

    After settling in the tub, now is the perfect time to begin chanting your mantra or dropping into a meditation on gratitude.

    Rinse and Repeat

    We hope this ritual helps you leave the bath with a sense of deep relaxation and gratitude. 2020 has been a challenging time for us all, but you have the power to focus on being grateful. 

    Repeat this process as needed to help cultivate more gratitude in your life. We like to use the gratitude soak as a tool at the end of each week to process everything that happened.

    Let us know what you’re grateful for by tagging @kushqueenshop on IG.
