Cannabis and love: name a more iconic duo. It’s the season of unconditional LOVE at Kush Queen. Calling it Valentine's day is so last decade; it’s not inclusive to our single friends and most often is slanted to corporation acknowledged relationships. 

The CBD Gift Guide For The B, The D and The V 

At Kush Queen, you know we’re just not about that typical life, but we are majorly here to celebrate love. Not just the one size fits all, heart shaped box with candy sort of love. It’s 2020 we’re here for all types of love millenial cannabis loving love. 

Gifting cannabis is different than lingerie or an expensive dinner (we like those too though), giving cannabis is a gift for the mind, body, and spirit. That’s why cannabis is our love language.  

Cannabis relaxes us, connects us deeper into our bodies and also with the universe surrounding us. It helps our insecurities (we all have them) fade away and it heightens our senses to see, feel, taste, and smell the world around. In our experiences, Cannabis can carry us and our bodies through the grief of a broken heart or deepen our self love. This gift guide is a celebration of cannabis and love.

Some of our best relationships are often the ones that don’t involve sex. Our best friends are the ones who hold us down, check in on us, have our backs, and always have the T. They see us in a way that others can’t and isn’t it so nice to not have to explain yourself after every joke? 

Bare 5000mg CBD Tincture 

The stoner BFF is always always in need of more CBD, so splurge on them with our 5000mg Broad Spectrum CBD Tincture. They’ll be talking about how they got to sleep in 30 seconds flat for weeks.

Ditch the old heart shaped doggo cookie this year! Your relationship with your pet is probably stronger than with hoomans (don’t worry, us too). They give us unconditional love everyday, support us with no judgement and they’re cute. Our pets have endocannabinoid systems too, like a vital nutrient they need cannabinoids to help regulate their most important body functions.  

Woof Queen

Woof Queen Lavender  for those tiny pups who shake in their sink baths and Woof Queen Relieve for those pups with aches and pains. 

Coat a treato with Bare 500mg CBD tincture or drop it on top of their food daily for a hypoallergenic dose of CBD pawfect for your pooch.

The first time I went to a real yoga class about 5 years ago, I was shocked to realize something I hadn’t fully acknowledged in all my years of working out; I truly disliked feet. I had never been a fan of them – but I quickly noticed my own tell-tale scowl every time the class was instructed to bend over and touch our unsocked toes.

In bed, I’m a big fan of a cuddly caress, but try to run your foot up my leg under the covers… and I’m out of there faster than if a spider had fallen from the ceiling. In fact, that might even be my excuse as I run away, rather than reveal my distrust and distaste for the lowest extremities.

As I processed my disgust over many stoned yoga classes, I came to find that – as is often the case – this thing that I disliked so much about other bodies truly stemmed from something I disliked about myself. And thus the connection was born – a well-timed pedicure would lead to a happier yoga class, with more understanding, empathy, and less judgment about other people’s grubby ground hands.

But alas, my lesson went awry and without Uncle Jessie (NOT aunt Becky) to ask “what did we learn today” – I associated the found “okayness” with a fresh coat of paint.

This was the beginning of what I call my “teen years” of foot care, except I was 26 and going to yoga with busted polish that I had applied myself… weeks before. A whole new reason to be embarrassed and ashamed!  Maybe not the first time, but for sure the second, third, and definitely that time I decided to just not go to class because of it. And yet, again, some weed and deep thinking would soon reveal that it wasn’t a fear of what others would think that was upsetting me, it was the lack of love and appreciation I was showing for my own body – my own uncared-for “little piggies.”

That’s when I realized it – I’m a pedicure person. A real, genuine, passionate pedicure person every 3-4 weeks. I trim in-between of course, but I’ve found that dedicating that 45-60 minutes to a full foot service is worth it, for me. Beyond the nail shape and color, there’s the cuticle care, the callus removal, the little leg rubs… it’s everything. After some shopping around for the perfect salon, I finally have “my place” and it’s a little vacation for my mind, and puts a spring in my very pretty step.

Being a Kush Queen, and maybe the king of footbaths – I sometimes bring a mini bath bomb for the foot soak – after first asking the salon owner if it was okay. It’s a leveling-up of my spa moment and HIGHly recommended for anyone making this a ritual.

When I’m in the mood for a special treat, I head over to Bellacures for our signature collaboration service, the cannacure! The Cannacure service is longer, and incorporates Kush Queen products every step of the way: Relieve CBD mini bath bomb(s) in the water, CBD sugar scrub for the legs, Melt lotion for the massage… I leave a different person. If you live in the LA-area, treat yourself to one of these services at your local Bellacures.

Pedicures have helped me to love a part of my body that I thought I never could – my feet. I look at them and smile, which should be our goal for our whole body, right? I went from someone who was unable to touch my toes – physically, and mentally – to someone who can gladly wrap my palm around my arch.

Don’t worry this isn’t our list of CBD wellness predictions for the new year or the old new year/new you talk. 2019 was a tough year for a lot of us (an understatement for some). Let’s learn from it as we prepare to usher in the new decade.

I was trying to think of what this year might look like, a stock market graph with some hella intense peaks and valleys, Gollum, an abominable snowman?! Undeniably, this year was mythical, the highs were some of those pure joy moments while the lows felt like they might break us. But damn we’ve grown, chosen higher paths, gotten focused and have no doubts the new decade will be what we make it.

Let’s give 2019 a moment of silence! Bye. Felecia.

The Power of Reflection

Kush Queen model reflects on 2019 while holding CBD bath bombs.

One of the most powerful things to do at the end of the year is reflect. Reflection can be the growth element tool we need to process and adapt from what’s happened to us, our emotions and our path.

This is our reflection and what we’ve learned throughout the cycles of 2019.   

Get To Know Yourself

Kush Queen model taking a daily dose of CBD wellness with Bare.

In the truest sense. Take time to understand exactly who you are, what you want and where your boundaries lie. We are living in a time where things can quickly get hectic and there is always other people’s lives and drama to get swept up in.

On the flip side, examine where you need to grow. It’s easy to forget that we do have [some] control in how our life gets shaped. Only you can alter the path that you take.

This year some of us had to turn inward and check-in. We faced the hard facts and got life coaches, quit toxic jobs, took our health and wellness more seriously, had bad hair for an extended amount of time and did things that scared the shit out of us. In every situation, we are all better for taking those leaps, working through the discomfort and giving our truest self a chance to shine through.

Lean In and Go For It

Kush Queen CBD Gummies is a artistic circular photo.

Real talk, it can be scary but if you can trust yourself, you can do it. As a collective, we took major strides in bringing Kush Queen closer to mainstream this year. Everything involved in doing so was high stakes, level-up type projects that were a real test for our team.

The night before BeautyCon La kicked-off was filled with what-ifs, triple and double-checks with how to present our cannabis and wellness company at a mainstream beauty and make-up conference. And you know what? Kush Queen was so well received! The crowd was curious about CBD wellness, loved our CBD 101 kits and engaging with our team.

Before taking that leap our team was focused, we leaned in together, did the work and succeed when we went for it!

Health and CBD Wellness, First

Our bodies are so good to us, it’s easy to forget how to be good to them on a daily basis. I’ll be the first to admit in 2019, I let my health go. Even in the worst of times, giving our bodies the time, love/attention, and fuel it needs will only benefit us in the long term.

Kush Queen is committed to daily wellness. Our CBD health and wellness products are geared to nourish your body in different ways. The targeted effects and CBD dose of each product seamlessly blends in with everyday rituals.  

Here are our daily CBD wellness favorites:

  1. Bäre CBD Tincture – Every morning. Bare is the BEST for your daily dose of anti-inflammation. For my mom, it makes people easier to deal with and dulls out her arthritis pain. Win/win.
  2. MELT CBD Lotion – This is our most appropriately named product. Everyday aches and pains melt away with this combo of CBD and targeted essential oils. I don’t leave home without MELT.
  3. GummiesRX – In 2020 night-time chill out is a must. GummiesRx is the wellness tool for transitioning from your high activity days to getting the rest your body needs.

Conclusion

We’re dedicating the new decade and new year to wellness in all senses of the word! When you hear from Kush Queen in 2020, know that we are coming from a place of love, positive energy, CBD wellness, and inclusion! We love you.

When things get tough, trust yourself, lean in and know you have an entire team of people that are in your corner!

When things are going well, ENJOY THE RIDE! You don’t need permission to soak it all up and feel the joy of your hard work.

And when you feel like the wheels are falling off, pour some CBD on it and call it day! That’s our go-to!

Kush Queen is largely known for our award-winning bath bombs and topicals powered by our patent-pending nano-CBD. Over the years, we have loved educating our customers about the benefits of a full-body topical CBD application; the synergistic relationship between cannabinoids and terpenes–known as the entourage effect; and why water-based CBD lubricants are safer than oil-based lubes. 

Last year we introduced a new category of products that have proven to be effective and fun for customers: Ingestibles. Ingestibles are CBD infused products that you eat, drink, or otherwise take orally. The addition of ingestibles to the Kush Queen line of wellness products makes our offering more holistic and versatile. Let’s dig into why and how you can use our CBD Ingestibles. 

CBD Tincture 101

CBD Tincture featured in a morning routine.

CBD tinctures are trending right now. Tinctures are especially appealing among folx who want to avoid smoking or limit their use of pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter medications. 

What is CBD Tincture Made Of?

CBD Tinctures are made of hemp extract mixed with a carrier oil.  

Kush Queen Bare CBD Tincture is a hypoallergenic blend of organic olive oil and full-spectrum CBD. Full-spectrum CBD means that the CBD is derived from cannabis and contains CBD in addition to many other cannabinoids, including THC, along with other elements of the hemp plant.

How do you take CBD Tincture?

CBD tinctures are commonly taken sublingually. This means the oil is dropped into your mouth and held underneath the tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. During this time absorption occurs through the blood vessels and sublingual glands in the mouth. This method ensures a rapid onset and higher bioavailability of CBD. This type of dosing also allows one to easily adjust their dose as needed. Bäre CBD Tincture comes with dosing instructions on the bottle and a dropper with easy to read measurements in milliliters. 

Why Should You Choose CBD Tincture?

CBD Tincture being taken by a woman.

Someone trying to ease pain, promote better sleep, reduce anxiety, and boost their immune system could benefit greatly from adding a dose of CBD tincture to their morning and nightly routines. 

We recommend Kush Queen CBD Tincture if…

  • You want to adjust and measure a custom CBD dose
  • You want to include CBD in your daily wellness routine 
  • You need a rapid onset of effects
  • You want to infuse CBD into any food
  • You enjoy the clean natural taste of hemp extract in organic olive oil
  • You want to give your pet CBD 

CBD Gummies 101

Kush Queen Rx CBD Gummies poured out on a pink background.

CBD Gummies are a fun combo of sweetness and CBD. Gummies are an easy way to take CBD with you during day-to-day activities and while traveling. 

What are CBD Gummies? 

CBD Gummies are edible candies that contain cannabidiol (CBD) oil. They come in a variety of flavors, colors, shapes, and concentrations of CBD. Gummies offer a discrete and easy way to ingest CBD. 

Historically, CBD Gummies have been most people’s first introduction to trying CBD. 

When Should You Take CBD Gummies?

Kush Queen CBD Gummies can be taken daily with morning vitamins and supplements and as needed throughout the day. 

Since the CBD is infused into the gummies in 12.5mg and 25mg doses, you get a precise dose every time. Hand-crafted in small batches in California, Kush Queen GummiesRx are an easy way to elevate yourself daily.

Not Your Average CBD Gummie

Unlike THC-infused edibles that can end in disaster if taken carelessly, Kush Queen CBD Gummies are effective for reducing stress and promoting relaxation without producing a psychoactive effect. 

Kush Queen gummies are lab tested to ensure each gummy is dosed accurately, making them perfect for beginners looking for their CBD sweet spot. We use full-spectrum CBD that contains less than 0.3% THC, so they won’t get you high, but they will give you plenty of relief. 

So keep a bottle of Kush Queen CBD gummies in your gym bag, backpack, or carry-on and never let pain, stress, or anxiety keep you from living your best life.

We recommend GummiesRx if…

  • You want an easy, on-the-go dose of daily CBD
  • Want to know exactly what you’re getting each time
  • Don’t want to deal with measuring out each dose yourself
  • Enjoy the sweet taste of gummies

Conclusion

We’ve laid out the 101 knowledge and benefits of taking a CBD tincture and CBD gummies, but there’s no reason why you can’t experiment with both.

Holiday survival mode is real, and what’s even more real is holiday survival with the help of CBD bath bombs. As we said in the Kush Queen CBD Gift Guide, this time of year is the most wonderful and the busiest season for many of us. The shopping, the travel, the festivities, the weather – they all converge during the holiday season. Which can send us into a flurry of excitement and overwhelm. If we know anything here at Kush Queen, it’s how to keep calm and carry on with the help of our CBD bath bombs.

Here are our top picks for surviving the holidays with CBD Bath Bombs but first a quick recap of why CBD makes sense this time of year.

The Benefits of using CBD Bath Bombs, Holiday Edition

  1. A Full Body CBD Topical – Your skin is your biggest organ, so by submerging your body fully into the CBD-infused water you are experiencing a full-body topical application. Think relaxed muscles, soothed aches and eased tension across your entire body. 
  2. Immune System Boost – CBD is a known anti-bacterial. The holiday season typically brings more travel and contact with people (read as more exposure to germs). We like to up our CBD daily intake this time of year as a preventative measure to keep our endocannabinoid and immune systems nourished.  
  3. A 20-Minute Recharge – During this time of year, we often put a stronger emphasis on others rather than ourselves. Whether it’s going to every party we are invited to or squeezing in a last-minute gift-getting errand at the end of the day, the holidays are a hectic time. Doing a once a week CBD infused bath can be those 20 minutes you didn’t know how bad you needed. It’s easy to get swept up in the shuffle, here’s a reminder to take some time to let your body relax and your mind rest.

Holiday Survival CBD Bath Bomb Picks

Prep for your busy day of travel or your holiday shopping stroll by slathering on the lotion and soak in a high-dose of healing at night by combining the CBD bath bomb with the bubble bath. With the self-care collection, you’ll get all three products so you can choose to keep or gift as you like!  

High Dose CBD Bath Bombs

Sippin’ the CBD Tea

Nothing is cozier on a chilly winter day than a CBD-infused bath and a hot cup of tea. Whether you’re in an Earl Grey, Matcha Green Tea or Spiced Chai kinda mood, we’ve got a CBD bath bomb to compliment your taste. Made with our nano CBD and actual tea leaves, this trio was made to ease your stress after a long day. The complete Tea Collection makes the perfect gift for the tea-spilling queen in your entourage.

Shield For Immunity

Shield for Immunity CBD Bath Bombs help boost your immune system.

Shield for Immunity was our first higher dose CBD bath bomb that was created for cold and flu season. Inspired by the 15th-century legend of four thieves, we have hand-blended a powerful and aromatic mixture of clove, rosemary, cinnamon, and other natural botanicals believed to provide a shield of protection by supporting and strengthening the body and its immune system. 

Don’t Forget the Fur Babies!

Woof Queen does your pupper a solid relax!

Made with 10mg nano CBD and essential oils to calm and relieve your doggo after a hectic holiday.

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  

Kush Queen CEO Olivia Alexander mixing CBD topicals.

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

Kush Queen CBD warehouse with Olivia leaning on bubble wrap.

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. 

Follow our lead and make this holiday season the most chill you’ve ever experienced. The Ultimate Kush Queen CBD Gift Guide will navigate you through gifts for just about anyone in your life!

It’s the most wonderful time of year when we eat, drink, shop, and spread joy. And at the same time, we also run ourselves ragged with events, to-do lists and trying to make the most of the holiday season. On top of that, it’s flu season, its sugar season, and not only is it the most wonderful, but also one of the busiest times of the year. 

The KQ team is here to make gifting easy and meaningful with our first annual Kush Queen CBD Gift Guide!

Kush Queen CBD Gift Guide Text over scene of presents.

Why should you gift CBD, anyway?

Gifting CBD is a truly powerful experience for both the giver and receiver. Giving the gift of CBD to a friend or loved one is more than giving them a cool product, it’s a wellness experience. CBD has the power to transform someone’s daily routine into less pain, better sleep or better skin. From daily self-care to a better night’s rest, The Ultimate Kush Queen CBD Gift Guide has it all. 

We put together a list of Kush Queen CBD wellness and beauty products to make your holiday shopping easy as pie. It’s not just the holidays and the start to a new year, it’s the birth of a new decade.

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

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.

CBD lube may seem like a novelty, but it does so much more than kick up the heat in the bedroom.

The reasons why CBD lube works are multifaceted, much like the people who use it. Just about anyone can benefit from a product that makes sex and masturbation more pleasurable, but CBD lube is an absolute game changer for people who experience:

  • Pain resulting from sexual trauma
  • Pain caused by conditions like vaginismus, endometriosis, and childbirth
  • Decreased libido or sexual desire due to hormonal changes or medications
  • Dryness experienced post-menopause or after radiation/cancer treatments
  • Tension or an inability to relax, especially related to the pelvic floor

CBD lube works by creating a pathway to more enjoyable sexual contact. This concept goes beyond a novelty or trendy sex product and truly becomes a tool for healing.

What’s on the Inside Counts For CBD Lube To Really  Work

Of course, what’s in the lube matters tremendously, especially for those in need of sexual healing. Kush Queen CBD lube, Ignite, is water-based, making it safe for use with latex and silicone, so whether you’re embarking on solo-play or engaging with a partner, you can enjoy the benefits of CBD lube without the hassle or worry. 

Unlike many CBD lubes on the market, Kush Queen CBD Lube is actually a lubricant and not an oil-based formula infused with CBD. Each ingredient is paraben-free and was carefully selected for its safety and efficacy, resulting in a product that’s inclusive to all. 

The CBD in Ignite is broken down into nanoparticles that are 2,000 times smaller than pores, which allows for rapid absorption and increased bioavailability. The topical application of CBD allows the cannabinoids to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and is the key mechanism behind why CBD lube works for such a wide spectrum of needs. 

Why CBD Lube Works for So Many Folx

The reason why Kush Queen’s Ignite works wonders on so many bodies is its ability to trigger multiple physical reactions through localized application and the CBD’s interaction with the ECS. 

It’s no secret that genital arousal is characterized by blood flow to the region resulting in erect and swollen genitalia and increased sensitivity. As a vasodilator, CBD works to relax the muscles of the arteries allowing blood to flow through with more ease. The results are increased arousal, an increased depth and frequency of climax, and a diminishment of pain and tension.

Kush Queen CBD Lube being held by a model.

Relaxation is another effect that adds to why our lube works so well for so many. When we explore our sexuality or engage with partners, self-conscious or non-sexual thoughts may arise, distracting from the experience. The inability to get out of our heads and into the moment limits our ability to be in our bodies and present with the sensations were experiencing. The topical application of CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system to ease tension in the body and relax muscles, allowing comfort to pave the way for pleasure. 

Verified buyers of Kush Queen CBD Lube report results ranging from intensified orgasms in healthy womxn to “penis hugs” from happy husbands and renewed sexual satisfaction for post-menopausal womxn to pain-free intercourse for the first time ever, a wide spectrum of people are discovering how and why CBD lube works for their intimate needs.

Customer review of Kush Queen CBD lube stating they LOVE this lube.

Choose Pleasure, Choose You

Simply putting into practice the intention of increasing pleasure for yourself and/or your partner will have a positive effect on your sex life. By putting pleasure first and making the extra effort you send the signal to yourself that enjoyable sex is a priority. After all, it is your birthright. 

When viewed through the lense of compassion for sufferers of painful sex, people dealing with reproductive dysfunction, and those experiencing hormonal changes or mental conditions that result in decreased sexual desire and satisfaction, the use of CBD in the bedroom can be seen as therapeutic.

Decreased tension and sensations that anchor you to the present moment work synergistically to alter the experience of sex for the better. 

How empowering to be able to reconnect with your sexuality after feeling disconnected from it and from yourself with a little help from Kush Queen CBD Lube.
