Hi, it's Olivia Alexander here, founder of Kush Queen. I pretty much live and breathe our brand. But when I'm not at HQ working, I'm usually on the interwebs, and lately, I have been doing a ton of podcasting.

I really enjoy podcasting because it allows for long-form content, and let's be real, I love to talk. Naturally, conversations around cannabis, being a female CEO in the space, and my other personal interests, like psychedelics, all came up. I wanted to share some of my latest interviews with you for your listening pleasure, and hey, maybe you'll fall in love with one of these podcasts and binge some episodes (like I have done many times).

 

Kendalls World | Mindset | Spirituality | Travel

I sat down with Kendall Furman, content creator and social media influencer dedicated to exploring travel, wellness, and more on Kendall's World.

In my episode of Kendall's World, we chat about all the healing benefits this plant offers. Furman isn't as experienced with cannabis, and she can't seem to find the right type of high, so I obviously dive into the complexity and uniqueness of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). I also teach her about endogenous cannabinoids and the myths surrounding cannabis.

Furman is an engaging host and even has video episodes on her Spotify. Her favorite new Kush Queen product is our CBG-infused Diamond Hands Gummies (which she's been raving about on her IG stories). Thanks, boo!

 

From Pot To Popular

Rosie Mattio is an acclaimed and accomplished woman in cannabis. Mattio is the founder of Mattio Communications, a powerhouse cannabis PR agency based in New York City. In addition to lifestyle and cannabis, the firm is also interested in working with brands from another emerging market, psychedelics.

On this industry-focused podcast, From Pot to Popular, we discuss what it's like to be a woman in cannabis, why representation in this industry matters, and why small businesses really, really matter (especially in cannabis).

While you're at it, check out this amazing byline by Mattio, on "Why 2022 will be a defining year for women in cannabis".  

 

That Budtender Podcast

Finally, I stopped by That Budtender Podcast for some serious girl talk and Seth Rogan slander. Hosted by cannabis journalist and Kush Queen ally, Bianca Blanche, listening to just one episode will have you craving a full sesh with the ex-budtender.

As a former budtender myself, fun fact: we actually got our start at the same dispensary but different years, Blanche and I give a well-deserved nod to the OG days of cannabis. Trust us, a lot has changed since then.

On my episode of That Budtender Podcast, we're getting a little stoney and speaking from the heart. We go over why I hate celebrity-driven cannabis brands, my experience consuming entheogen plants for my mental health, and dealing with the anti-cannabis tyrants at Instagram and TikTok.

There’s truly such an endless world available of podcasts and conversations. From Thirdwave to The True Beauty Brooklyn Podcast, I have over 16 hours of content on this playlist. I also have a bunch of exciting interviews coming up, so make sure to check them out. Not so much for me, but for the incredible women behind these amazing podcasts, especially if you're interested in learning more about women entrepreneurship, wellness, cannabis, and other psychedelics.

Follow us at Kush Queen for more interviews and brand updates!!

We can’t get enough of the Kush Queen #SoakandToke and believe it or not, there is a method to the canna-madness. 

In case you missed it in our previous post, a Kush Queen 'Soak and Toke' combines dual delivery methods of consumption to help achieve an ideal effect. We're all about using cannabis to find our feelings this season. 

Model smokes Kush Queen hemp flower

 

Many people chop cannabis up to just getting high, but when you really know the plant, you can actually create different types of experiences. Gone are the days when you simply feel stoned.

Luckily, Kush Queen's new hemp CBD and Delta 8 flower pair perfectly with our customer's favorite award-winning cannabis and CBD-infused bath bombs and topicals. 

Lemon Octane CBD and Soaked Shower Gel


Kush Queen's Prepackaged Eighth of Lemon Octane CBD Flower

 

Pair the Lemon Octane CBD with our citrus shower gel Soaked; it's a spring-inspired combo that will uplift your body and mind. This strain's terpenes and fruity profile will give you a burst of energy. Our Lemon Octane CBD is a strain made from Lemon Snow CBG and Bubba Kush 66 and is high in CBG, the mother of all cannabinoids

Kush Queen's Soaked CBD Shower Gel

 

Think of this as the quintessential Sativa pairing, perfect for mornings or a mid-afternoon pick me up. Enjoy it in a pre-roll or pack it in a bowl with our pre-packed eighths. You’ll feel an elevated mood because of all the citrus terpenes and deep body chill. Use our Soaked shower gel as a bubble bath or shower gel. 'Shower joint' is now the new shower beer

 

Sour Space Candy and 1:1 Relax Bath Bomb

Kush Queen Sour Space Candy CBD + ∆8 Pre-Roll

 

This particular pairing is for those in search of the ultimate high. Sour Space Candy (SSC for short) is a Delta 8 strain, meaning it will definitely get you elevated. The origin of SSC is rooted in the genetics of Sour Tsunami, one of the first cultivars bred for high CBD. 

Kush Queen Relax 1:1 CBD & Delta 8 THC Bath Bomb

 

This hybrid strain has a delicious terpene profile that we've paired with our Relax 1:1 bath bomb infused with Delta 8 and CBD. If you really want to melt away, finish with a foot massage using our Kush Queen CBD-infused pain relief lotion Melt

Feel like you're being transported to a remote island while your Awaken bath bomb softly fizzes in the background. 

While the genetics of Hawaiian Haze remains a mystery, cannabis folklore says it was created using mineral-rich volcanic soil in Aloha State, Hawaii. We suggest putting on some Riri or The Beach Boys while you soak, and you can thank us later. 

Kush Queen's Complete Mini Collection of Bath bombs

 

When it comes to cannabis, it's all about finding what works best for you. And that can mean using multiple delivery methods for the best possible outcome. Basically, the more the merrier when it's time for cannabis and self-care.

Though the 'shower versus bath' debate has been going strong for generations, Kush Queen is here to explain why baths are (and will always be) unequivocally superior. 

Baths are better for many reasons. Not only do they provide deep muscle relaxation and pain relief, but they're also a sweet escape from reality. Baths cultivate a peaceful space we can retreat to where books get devoured, music plays uninterrupted, and favorite foods are enjoyed in peace... praise ganja!!

Like, seriously, what's not to love about a CBD bath bomb?!

CBD bath bombs are a great addition to your self-care routine. These wonderfully infused bath bombs can help you truly make the most out of your bath time ritual. The non-intoxicating CBD intensifies muscle relaxation and can simultaneously help your mind and body to unwind more easily. 

Read on to learn some awesome benefits of CBD-infused bath bombs and to get some 'inspo' on which ones you should try.

There Are Tons of Varieties

Much like all other bath bombs, CBD-infused ones come in a lot of different varieties. Kush Queen offers some that are tailor-made to promote rest and better sleep. We also have options to revamp and revitalize your skin and others that'll make you feel more energetic and engaged. 

The effect isn't the only factor to consider when purchasing a bath bomb. Aromatherapy is a common reason people use these quality products. Choose a scent that makes you feel better than before, such as citrus, florals, coffee, or peppermint. As we always say, the nose knows. 

If you're unsure about which color or scent is best for you, get a mini bath bomb variety pack and test out the multiple types of bath bombs we offer.

They're Easy to Use

CBD is generally pretty easy to use, but bath bombs take convenience to a whole new level. There is no need to decipher complex instructions as you would with a tincture or an edible; in this case, you simply put a bath bomb in the tub and let it work its magic. 

Because our bath bombs already come with the appropriate amount of CBD infused in them, you don't need to worry about perfecting your dosage either. Instead, sit back and watch as the colors move throughout the water and enjoy the therapeutic scent as it hits your nose.

They Magnify Healing Effects

Baths are incredibly healing no matter the circumstances. Stretching and moving in water provides strength through resistance. Plus, baths can help you breathe better and potentially improve both your brain and nervous system.

Certain studies suggest that baths can help your heart and make you more immune to diseases, but these are not 100% proven as fact. 

It's undeniable, however, that baths feel good and benefit your muscles, joints, and bones. Additionally, since hot water opens pathways that provide more oxygen to your brain, aromatherapy from bath bomb scents is likely very effective.

They Provide a Spa-Like Experience

Spas are intended to relax both your mind and body, and that's what CBD bath bombs do. Head-to-toe relaxation leads to less anxiety, and less anxiety leads to overall better mental and physical health.

Also, since these products are a true luxury, Kush Queen CBD bath bombs will make you feel like all types of high-class royalty from home. (It's giving a glowing Riri amidst the hustle and bustle of NYC).

Best of all, each bath bomb that we offer is price-comparable with other high-quality bath and body companies. Since these other companies don't let you reap the benefits of CBD infusion, this is a huge benefit.

They May Heal Muscle Pain

Did you know that clinical studies have suggested that CBD indirectly improves the immune system's response to pain? CBD eliminates negative hormones and the proliferation of T-cells within the body. The CB1 and CB2 receptors in your natural body are strengthened and help to reduce muscle and joint pain.

CBD bath bombs will prove especially effective at this because they immerse your entire body in CBD. Unlike with a tincture or edible, you will be surrounded by its healing properties. This helps to promote your holistic health in all areas of the body.

They Can Benefit Your Skin

Regular bath bombs can benefit your skin in general because of the essential oils infused within them. These oils nourish, moisturize, and revitalize your skin to keep it smooth and comfortable. CBD bath bombs also incorporate basic essential oils in addition to cannabis, so they retain these benefits. However, like the other properties of baths, CBD magnifies these effects.  

2020 study suggests that there is therapeutic potential for CBD to help those with skin disorders become healthier. It also is likely proactive in keeping healthy skin moist and preventing problems further down the line.

While the overall topical benefits are still being studied, you should 100% try it to see if it works for you. Many users cite that there's a lot of truth to this research, proclaiming how CBD makes their skin feel revitalized and nourished. Since bath bombs touch all of your skin, this is a great way to try it out.

September is national self-care awareness month. Since self-care is major bae at Kush Queen we sat down with CEO, Olivia Alexander to learn how to build a CBD self-care routine that can actually make us feel better. 

What’s the tea on building a CBD self-care routine?

Olivia: I meet so many people who have tried CBD but never felt any benefit. Sure there are a lot of variables here like you could be buying inferior CBD products or using a dose that is too low, but; you could also not understand the key components when it comes to creating harmony in the body with cannabinoids. 

When it comes to CBD, most people know this non-psychoactive molecule should not make you feel high, but rather help us feel better. As a long-time CBD user, I have perfected how to approach CBD as a tool for self-care.

Building a CBD self-care routine that makes you feel better day-to-day comes down to 3 things: 

  1. Consistency, we're talking daily use.
  2. Starting simple then building on your foundation. This shouldn't feel like a task.
  3. Listening to your body and adjusting over time. We change and so do our needs.

What is the most crucial factor when thinking about adding CBD to your self-care routine? 

Olivia: Consistency, consistency, and consistency! The first and overriding element when it comes to building a CBD self-care routine is regular use. You cannot sporadically use these molecules and expect them to improve wellness. In addition, we cannot expect to start using CBD when we are sick or stressed and think it can be a cure-all. 

You want to build a routine that is simple, approachable, and can be consistently maintained. 

Stick with whatever routine you decide on for a minimum of 30 days before you adjust. Keep it simple and stay focused on consistency. 

Kush Queen CEO shares advice on building a CBD self care routine.

What is an easy way to get started with building your CBD self-care routine?

Olivia: Start with one thing! Creating a multi-product regimen out the gate can leave you feeling like self-care is a task rather than a wellness tool. 

IMO, the best place to start is a daily CBD tincture; morning or night works. For total CBD newbies, I like to recommend Kush Queen’s bare 500mg CBD tincture. This CBD tincture is an approachable product to start integrating into your daily life; plus it's easy to control the dose and travels well. 

Now let’s build on this example. 

Once you are consistently using a CBD tincture, start to follow your daily use of Bare, with a single weekly CBD bath. There are so many benefits to bathing regularly when you add cannabinoids you unlock even more wellness potential. 

While bathing, I like meditating or a list of self-check-in questions that connect me to my mental and physical self. This is where the concept of “really feeling better,” kicks in. When we can align our mind and body needs and hear what our inner self is telling us, we can adjust our routine to help us fill those needs.

Let’s say you don’t have a tub or have the time for a bath, no worries! On some nights, I integrate our Soaked CBD shower gel into my nightly routine.

Lather up with the citrus body wash and let it sit on your skin for at least 30 seconds. Once I’ve lathered up, I breathe deeply and let the uplifting scents take me to a sunny place in my mind. 

Remember, getting started is typically the biggest hurdle. Once you start feeling the self-connection and benefits, adding on to your routine is fun!

What’s one of the overlooked elements of creating a CBD self-care routine?

Olivia: It seems like a no-brainer, but checking in with our bodies. If anything, we are taught to ignore what our bodies are communicating. 

So many of us lack the mind-body connection required to truly understand if CBD is working for us and creating homeostasis in the body. First, we must slow down and pause to be present enough to listen. Turn your attention inward, take deep breaths, and sit with your body. 

Try these for self-connection starter questions:

  • How have I been feeling these past 30 days?
  • Am I getting enough sleep?
  • Am I getting the movement I need?
  • Have I experienced changes in my stress level? 

Once you understand what your body needs building or adjusting your CBD self-care routine around those needs creates a self-care environment where you feel the benefits. 

Adding a weekly bath can help stack the benefits of CBD self-care.

How can regular CBD users ensure their self-care routine stays impactful?

Olivia: So you have been consistently using CBD for a minimum of 30 days and checking in with your body. It may be time to consider adjusting your dose, adding a new targeted effect, or make changes to your routine. 

Ask yourself, what am I trying to achieve? What am I missing that I was once getting? What is my body asking for?

Remember, our endocannabinoid systems are incredibly unique, like your fingerprint and DNA. It is normal to experience trial and error with products or have effects that once worked for you stop having the same impact. Your ability to check-in and adjust your routine is a constant when evolving your wellness and self-care tools. 

When using CBD to build a meaningful self-care routine, you must consider what else you are putting into your body. If you're not choosing healthy foods, drinking alcohol, or taking pharmaceutical drugs, manage your expectations for your CBD routine. 

Our bodies are incredibly sensitive and so are our minds. I’ve been active with CBD self-care for over 5 years now and I change my routine every 4 months. Most of my changes depend on the season, my stress levels, and maintaining my mind-body connection.

Conclusion

When it comes to using plants for their target effects, the experience is unlike using pharmaceuticals, which you just take daily and go on with your life. With cannabinoids, you are on an ever-evolving journey, but consistency, checking in and making adjustments are key elements to developing a CBD routine that makes you feel better. 

It's important to remember that using CBD and feeling better may not be this huge event. Our wellness and improvements are often smaller, simple moments we overlook. Feeling less stressed with current events, sleeping better, being able to enjoy the present more are a few indicators that your CBD self-care routine is working.

Ultimately, there is nothing like the power of harnessing your wellness - CBD is the perfect tool to begin that journey. 

We imagined a wellness tincture that could boost your daily energy levels, heighten focus, and defy the typical stoner stereotypes. bäre+, CBD and THCV tincture was born.

Meet bäre+, your new favorite wellness supplement delivering smooth energy and motivation to keep you functioning all day. Featuring the potent combo of CBD and Δ9THCv, bäre+ relieves stress, supports daytime functionality, and unlike THCV, works to suppress the appetite. 

Targeted Effects of a CBD and THCV Tincture

  • Smooth Energy
  • Heightened Focus
  • Anti-Munchies
  • Stress Relieving 
Kush Queen Bare+ 1050mg CBD and 150mg THCV

 

When trying to achieve the targeted effects listed above, the amount of THCV used in the product is an important factor. With any THCV product, you want to make sure you are getting the molecule as advertised, not a watered down product or a product with high amounts of THCV. 

bäre+ features a ratio of 1050mg of CBD and 150mg of THCV in each bottle. Each tincture bottle contains thirty 1mL doses with approximately 5mg THCv and 30mg CBD. And just like the rest of the bäre daily wellness line, bäre+ only feaures two ingredients: extra virgin olive oil and hemp extract.

Wait, But Why Pair THCV with CBD? 

After learning about the benefits and properties of Δ9THCv at low doses, our R&D team was on a mission to create a revolutionary product that could deliver the opposite of the typical stoner experience. 

If you haven’t heard of THCv, read up on the molecule's details and why we are so excited about this minor cannabinoid in our post, What is THCV? We dig into: 

  • The effects
  • Why not all THCV is created equally
  • THCV research (yes, there is medical research on this molecule)

I’ve tried lots of supplements and etc and this is my gold star. I just purchased 4 more bottles. Incredible product. I feel so good! I had this sudden urge to run after not doing so for 15 years. I dance around. I’m so grateful for this magic potion!”


Elisha Delorto, Verified Buyer Reviewed bäre+ CBD:THCV Tincture

Kimberly Gamboa, Verified Buyer Reviewed bäre+ CBD:THCV Tincture

“I absolutely love that this tincture is in olive oil and it MCT, for people with coconut allergies like me this is so exciting and appreciated. I do need to take a full dropper and a half to get the desired effects- I have been taking it twice a day in the morning as my inspiring pick me up and in the afternoon as my “cup of tea” I really love this product. I just wish it was slightly stronger so I could take less.”


Channae Appel, Verified Buyer Reviewed bäre+ CBD:THCV Tincture

“I love every product from Kush Queen! This one is my new favorite though! Amazing, and without me wanting to munch on unnecessary snacks! LOVE!”

Conclusion

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, spring hits and so does our favorite holiday: 420. Yes, we are still living in a panini, but there’s no better time to have a cannabis-infused experience. 

Whether you're looking to celebrate with some CBD self-care, try new effects from minor cannabinoids or create a sexy experience for your partner, there are endless ways to celebrate the cannabis plant. 

For some, 4/20 will always have its classic appeal and meaning, for others it's an intimate celebration of self and community, or maybe it’s your first time. Cannabis itself is a plant that has so many broad applications and reasons why people come to it. So, just like the plant, the Kush Queen team believes you can celebrate 4/20 in whatever way you like. Cannabis is not about products, but effects and experiences. 

This year, we put together a guide to help you explore, celebrate and build a cannabinoid-infused wellness experiences. 

Super Chill 

It's 4/20 and you're not looking for your average chill, nor do you want to be bothered by anyone. We’re talking kickin it at home with the lights down low, turning up some vibey music, ordering in and night capping with a candle-lit bath! You could do what you’ve always done for 4/20 but where’s the fun in that?! Meet your new favorite effect: lifted chill.

That's where the Delta 8 molecule comes in, it’s what you call lifted chill. Our 1:1 CBD and Delta 8 Gummies and Bath Bombs are for those looking for an extra-strength effect experience. You may feel a little elevated after using Delta 8, just remember Delta 8 is not like CBD, which is non-psychoactive.

Newbies 

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being a newbie, we all are at some point. Our advice for beginning your cannabinoid journey: 

  • Start low and go slow, no need to jump into taking a high dose 
  • Make note of how different molecules and delivery methods make you feel

We recommend our 25mg CBD bath bombs, the 500mg dose of Bare CBD Tincture, or the 375mg Gummies RX. All of these handmade CBD products are the perfect starting point for integrating cannabinoid wellness into your daily routine. If you are still not sure where to start, here is a guide to help with choosing Kush Queen products. 

If you’ve never tried cannabinoids, start with:

Keep in mind, if you are experiencing symptoms of a condition, you may want to start at a higher dose of CBD or explore minor cannabinoids. 

Unplug In Nature

Unplugging in nature, aka forest bathing is our team’s favorite! Did you know shinrin-yoku or forest bathing has ancient roots? The term “forest bathing” was coined in Japan, where nature and therapy have close ties. The idea of “park prescriptions” in urban areas first started in Asia and caught on worldwide. 

At Kush Queen, we love to combine forest bathing with a little cannabinoid therapy. 

First, prep your skin for a day outdoors with Foto Blur to lock in moisture and Foto Set to keep your tinted SPF in place. Pop a Gummies Rx Bliss CBG: CBD gummy or a Gummies Rx Elevated Lemon for a mood boost, while nature takes you the rest of the way. Add a walking meditation or bring a little snack to customize your forest bath.

The perfect pairs for a day outdoors:

Kush Queen CBD and Delta 8 Gummies

Self-Care Celebration

Here is how we imagine the day will go:

Start with a 100mg Relieve CBD bath bomb and soak for at least 30 minutes. We like to go full monty for these tub moments with a playlist and candles to match our mood. 

Once you're out of the tub, it’s time for your CBD facial. Gently, scrub your face and neck with Renew CBD Scrub, rinse and pat dry, Finish up by applying Defynt CBD Skin Serum. Defynt’s skin-nourishing ingredients will instantly soak in and give you a glowing effect. Now look in the mirror and repeat, ‘You a baddie and you know it!’ 

For some body TLC, take our Melt CBD pain relief lotion and massage it on your feet, neck, and any other areas that ache. 

Finish off your day of self-care with a Gummies Rx Bliss for a daytime mood boost or Gummies Rx Sleep if you are heading to bed.

Trust us, you’ll be glowing and feel like you're floating!

Angie, our resident self-love queen, shared this reminder on listening guided wellness and self-love. “To me, wellness means being attuned to the signals my body and emotions are sending me at all times. It means being able to pause and be with those signals long enough to interpret what they’re asking. Being well means knowing when I can meet my own needs and also recognizing when getting support is the need.”

Moving deeper into self-love starts with listening to ourselves and taking what we need without judgment. 

Some days, you may need a lift, while some days may call for a deeply relaxing soak. When a mood boost is in need, try our 1:1 extra strength Delta 8 THC series. Pop a Delta 8 gummy or enjoy a Delta 8 1:1 THC bath bomb with our latest releases. 

Remember that you are always enough. You matter. And the entire Kush Queen family is supporting your self-love journey.

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!

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.

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 cannabinoid 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. 

Shop Kush Queen bare CBD Tincture

CBD’s 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 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. 

Kush Queen Sleep CBD Bath Bomb

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: 

Kush Queen CBD Bath Gratitude Playlist. Listen on Spotify

    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.
