Kush Queen Is Whole Plant Wellness

Every day we are dedicated to bringing you the most innovative and effective products. As the CBD boom hit, we decided to distance ourselves from being called a CBD BRAND. Not because we don’t believe in the power of CBD, because we do not want to be defined by a single molecule when we know our beloved cannabis plant has at least 100+ molecules. 

Our new minor cannabinoid products Gummies RX Bliss, Gummies Rx Sleep, and Bare CBD Tinctures feature broad-spectrum hemp (0% THC) version of minor cannabinoids. As a cannabis company, Kush Queen is unable to make medical claims about our products and frankly, we believe in letting our products speak for themselves. 

We put together a 3 article list and first hand CBG experience to help you dive into the cannabinoid revolution.

The 10 Minute CBG Deep Dive 

The article list below will take you on a CBG deep dive. Read up and you’ll know why we are so excited to feature CBG in Gummies RX Bliss 900mg.  

What is CBG and what does this cannabinoid do?

Leafly’s Jacqueline Havelka, rocket scientist turned writer, lays out the science of how CBG is formed and how it aids our endocannabinoid system. 

Our main takeaway from Leafly’s research recap is “scientists are excited about these initial CBG results and are promoting future research with CBG alone or CBG in combination with other cannabinoids and therapies for the treatment of multiple maladies. Because it is non-psychotropic, CBG has a promising wide range of potential applications not only for the problems mentioned above, but also as an analgesic, therapy for psoriasis, and as an antidepressant.” 

Why is CBG one of the most expensive cannabinoids to produce?

Forbes goes into detail on the process of developing CBG, how it works with your body and cannabinoid market. 

In the article, you’ll also learn why we named Gummies RX CBG: CBD, Bliss. CBG, known as the Rolls Royce of cannabinoids is a “non-intoxicating compound, it’s thought to help regulate mood thanks to its ability to boost anandamide, the body’s native “bliss” molecule.”

What is CBG and how is it different from CBD?

Shape says it best in their opening line, “you know CBD... but what about CBG? Meet the other phytocannabinoid that's about to steal the spotlight in the medicinal world.” Learn the differences between two of our favorite cannabinoids, get a phytocannabinoid 101, plus the deets on CBG’s potential benefits. 

CBG First-Hand Experiences

Gummies RX Bliss was my first minor cannabinoid Kush Queen product to try. I had smoked CBG and liked the effect but wondered how the molecule would translate into an ingestible. After taking Gummies RX CBG: CBD Bliss on a chill morning, I was blown away by the combo of CBG and CBD. Uplifting and chill at the same time, real-life bliss. - Tiffany, CMO

On Saturday I took one gummy and on Sunday I took two gummies. Both gave me an overall positive sense of well-being, while the 2 gummy dose obviously was a little stronger and longer but never over the top. Compared to your original gummy, the CBD/CBG relieves pain and chills me out but on top of that, it delivers a feeling of euphoria and happiness. You also don’t get too relaxed, tired or yawn while on them like your originals. I was up, alert, present and happy for a good amount of the day!

If I take 2 of your original Gummies Rx, it is definitely sleep time. I can definitely feel the quality and potency of the new CBD/CBG gummies, just like your original ones which is why I’m a repeat customer! - Chanel, Kush Queen Customer

Gummies RX CBG is my new favorite KQ product. It’s a delicious gummy that tastes better than a tincture with a real ratioed dose. CBG and CBD make me feel relaxed and super positive. It’s my new go-to morning dose. Super uplifting and vibey. - Olivia, CEO

Conclusion

Kush Queen believes in whole plant innovation. As new minor cannabinoids enter the mainstream market, consider our team your resource for accessing safe and effective cannabis wellness products. 

Our new Gummies RX Bliss features the uplifting combo of CBG and CBD. Give them and try and let us know what you think!

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

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

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

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 wellness. For my mom, it makes people easier to deal with and dulls out her hand aches. 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!
