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
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:
Why not all THCV is created equally
THCV research (yes, there is medical research on this molecule)
Don’t Take It from Us, These bäre+ Reviews Are From Real Kush Queen Customers
“I’m obsessed. Truly. I felt the appetite suppression the first day but after two weeks? I can’t describe the sense of well-being and heightened energy. 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!”
“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.”
“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!”
If you are looking for a tincture to nourish your endocannabinoid system, boost daily energy levels and help curb your cravings, give bäre+ a try! The powerful combination of CBD and THCV is truly a unique experience.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
CBD is inarguably all the rage as you can access products nearly anywhere in person or online. Yet so many people don’t know or understand how to use CBD or why they should use Kush Queen products daily. My philosophy in regards to cannabinoids is preventative and consistent use. As an every day, multiple times a day user, I believe in keeping my endocannabinoid system nourished. Today’ I’m sharing a recap of my recent trip to New York for Fashion Week.
Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine the places and spaces Kush Queen would take me. One of those places is New York Fashion Week to celebrate the launch of our collaboration with alice+olivia. Fashion Week. New York. Kush Queen. I am still shook.
NYFW CBD Travel Diary
I use cannabis to live my life free from mood stabilizing pharmaceuticals which requires me to think through my life and plan ahead. Upcoming travel always means I up my daily dose and stay mindful of my sleep patterns. So much about any type of cannabis use is about finding what works for you by learning from others. Here are the notes from my NYFW travel diary.
The Pre-Game – Planning and Adjusting My CBD Dosing
Traveling and changing time zones can be one of the biggest triggers for me. Pre-flight stress always creeps in 72-36 hours before take-off. A few years ago, I built out a CBD routine to ease into traveling. Trust me, you want to give this a shot if you share the same type of pre-travel feelings.
My pre-traveling CBD ritual includes:
2 Gummies RX, in the morning and at night the day before my flight. I also keep these with me at all times just in case I need to take the edge off mid travels.
A pre-flight CBD bath. I swell up on airplanes, so I use our new 200mg alice+olivia Bath Bomb to prep my body for the long flight and help ease my pre-flight stress.
I love the higher dose CBD bath bomb because it’s stronger than our regular doses. It’s like carb-loading before a long workout; I was about to be exposed to germs, plane air, and a time zone change. Plus, floating in the bath is always a time I take for myself to clear my mind and bring myself into the present before traveling.
Sunday, September 8, 2019 – The Day Before the alice + olivia Presentation
I arrived at our amazing brownstone in Brooklyn and notice my post-flight swelling wasn’t as bad as usual, must have been my pre-flight CBD bath bomb. I take a full dropper of Bäre before heading to dinner, which is about a 33.3mg dose of CBD. Ahhh – comfy shoes (check), cute outfit (check), mind at ease (check)!
(Late) Night Time
My fashion week looks arrived straight from the alice+olivia showroom. I popped a Gummies RX CBD gummy before getting fitted to keep my pre-show jitters from creeping in. After my fitting, I showered with our Soaked CBD shower gel and then lathered up in our alice+olivia CBD body lotion before heading to bed. No chance for bad sleep, aching feet or a restless mind to steal my slumber.
Monday, September 9, 2019 – alice + olivia presentation
A pre hair and makeup dose of CBD is always what I need. Anytime I am putting a full face of makeup on I wear our Defynt CBD Skin Serum and Kingdm CBD Primer under my make up. Many people ask why they should use CBD in their makeup routine?
The 3 main reasons to use CBD with your makeup routine:
CBD has anti-acne properties
CBD is anti-bacterial
CBD helps reduce redness.
Arriving at the alice +olivia presentation is like a scene in a movie. Sophia Ritchie was posing on the carpet before me. Luckily, I had 4 CBD Gummies RX gummies in the car, which is a solid 50mg oral dose. The show is filled with incredible clothes and people; all of my senses were stimulated. What an incredible experience I will never forget.
Also seems like NYFW needs to pour some CBD on it more than anyone!
Tuesday, September 10, 2019
It’s our day off exploring in Brooklyn. I have never seen Dumbo, but love the history and charm of the area. We had a beer and bite and then we explored a shop nearby with CBD products. I decided to try a CBD beverage called Recess while we explore the area and trekked over the Brooklyn bridge. A light and refreshing taste in a cute can, but not sure if I would buy again.
My feet are ravaged from wearing heels the day before and then walking most of the city. I lather them up in Melt CBD Pain lotion before bed and put on some socks. I can instantly feel my feet cool and my pain fades away.
Wednesday, September 11, 2019 – Photoshoot Day
Back in hair and make up again for a photo shoot. I toss two droppers of Bäre CBD Tincture into my cappuccino. My makeup artist Lauren lays a velvety smooth layer of Kingdm CBD Primer on before she starts on my look for the shoot.
Thursday, September 12, 2019 – alice+olivia Collaboration Event Day
I was woken up by a problem in LA with our payroll. Outside of travel, my next biggest trigger as a business owner is the banking industry. At this point, for me, CBD isn’t enough, so I smoke a joint, take a deep breathe and assess possible solutions. Things get resolved relatively quickly given the time zone change. Now we start to prep for the alice+olivia collaboration launch event.
Time for the alice+olivia x Kush Queen Meatpacking CBD Mocktail party. I had about 4, 25mg CBD mocktails, so you could say I am feeling GOOD. Keep an eye out for our upcoming alice+olivia events in La and Aspen – you need to get your hands on these mocktails!
Friday, September 13, 2019 – Head Home
Too Early in the Morning
My flight was at 4:45! Yes, you read that right. I’m crazy and I am on an early AF flight back to LA. No one should be up this early. I can’t be nice. So I take 2 full droppers of Bäre and sleep the entire way back to LA.
Once I returned home, I had only 72 hours before I had to go to Hall of Flowers, a cannabis B2B show in Santa Rosa, CA. I also had to attend a wedding, so I could not and did not get sick. Sure, once I was home I ate 150mg of THC edibles and slept for 16 hours, but I didn’t catch anything.
I always rely on CBD to help me through these work benders.Cannabinoids deliver an equilibrium I feel in my body and I am grateful that I have it in my life to help me be my best self.
CBD is a great tool to help with traveling and non-stop work. As you read in my travel diary, I use Kush Queen products in a variety of ways, depending on what’s going on in my life. I start by thinking through my triggers and building my CBD routine out from there.
Hi, yes, I am talking about tea again, won’t you join me?
Honestly, coffee gets all the spotlight, but I am her to remind you that tea should not be overlooked. It can give you a gentle caffeine boost when needed, or it can lull you to sleep. It can be served hot, iced, dressed up like a fancy latte or turned into cookies. The herbal benefits alone should be inspiration enough to start incorporating tea into your life, and the versatility it has to offer is an added bonus.
Obviously here at Kush Queen, we like to find all the ways to add CBD to our day, so here I am. The ways in which to utilize tea, much like CBD are endless, and I found some tasty (and some unconventional) tea-inspired recipes that you should definitely add CBD to.
It is honestly as easy as adding a few droppers of Bare Daily Wellness to the recipe to achieve your desired dosage. Pay attention to serving size and then choose how many milligrams of CBD you would like per serving. Each dropper of ourOriginal Bare CBD Tinctureoffers just over 16mg’s of CBD, so you can use that to determine how many droppers you will need.
After much research, thank you Pinterest, I have found 12 unique and enticing Tea-Inspired recipes that I think you should definitely try and definitely add CBD to. I was inspired by our very ownCBD Bath Bomb Tea Collection, Obvi, so these recipes will be incorporating Matcha, Earl Grey, and Chai teas.
While green popcorn may seem a little strange, It sounds delicious! I would recommend adding yourBare Daily Wellness dropsto the Matcha topping blend. And while this recipe calls for making stovetop popcorn, which if you can, probably tastes way better, but feel free to make the Matcha topping and toss with your favorite microwave popcorn option!
The green color of these cookies in 100% natural from the Matcha powder! SO fun! These would be great for a Halloween Party, St.Pattys day, or if we are being honest, a basic Tuesday. You will want to add in yourCBD tincturewith your butter and take it easy. Adding too much oil may alter the consistency of the cookies. I would recommend starting with 2-4 droppers for the recipe to see how they turn out. OR you can replace half the butter with thisCannabutter Recipe.
The citrus addition to this Matcha smoothie makes it bright and refreshing. While fall is just around the corner, the heat is still kicking, and this is a great way to cool down while enjoying a sweet treat and getting in loads of health benefits. You will want to blend all of the ingredients according to the recipe, THEN add in 1-2 droppers ofKush Queens Bare Daily Wellnessand pulse for a few more seconds until fully incorporated. Pour it up and enjoy!
When you want all the goodness of a smoothie, but are in a spoon kind of mood, in comes the smoothie bowl. My favorite way to trick my brain into thinking I am eating ice cream. This recipe takes the goodness of Match and combines it with frozen bananas and avocado to bring you an ultra-creamy smoothie bowl experience. Top with Chia seeds for a health boost, and whatever fresh fruits, granola, and nuts you’re vibing with! You can add yourCBD oilto this recipe by blending it into the smoothie, or by adding it to Granola if that is one of your chosen toppings.
Energy balls offer a foolproof way to add protein to your diet while also satisfying your sweet tooth. You can easily adapt the ingredients to your taste preference, but this Chai tea inspired version seems pretty near perfection. Add 4-6 droppers ofBare Daily Wellness CBD oilinto this recipe with the wet ingredients and your energy balls will have 4-6mg of CBD each.
Oatmeal cookies remind me of my childhood. Each bite is packed with nostalgia. Adding in Chai Spices honestly feels like the universe merging my current self with my child self to remind me that we are the still the same person. Too deep for an oatmeal cookie recipe? I don’t think so. I recommend removing ½ tbsp of butter from this recipe and adding ½ tbsp ofKush Queens Bare Tincture.
When you need a quick and fulfilling breakfast, oatmeal has your back. Protein-packed and unbelievably adaptable. There is an oatmeal option for almost everyone! This oatmeal takes the smooth flavors of vanilla and spices it up with some Chai. It’s a comforting combination to start your day off right. I would recommend trying thisCBD Whipped Creamrecipe to top your oatmeal! You deserve a dessert for breakfast kind of day! I promise.
Pancakes are one of my ultimate comfort foods. Cake, for breakfast, duh! It always felt like I was getting away with something when I would sit down for a pancake breakfast growing up. As an adult, I have continued the tradition, proudly. These pancake stacks are a twist of the classic. Adding Chai Spices and Sweet Potato really switches up the vibe bringing you a pancake with a deeper depth of flavor. Include 2 Droppers ofBare Daily Wellnesswith the olive oil that already in this recipe. An easy peasy way to add some chill to your morning meal.
Oh Dear Lord. This cake looks ridiculous! Subtle and decadent at the same time. A perfect flavor pallet you can turn to year around. The addition of the figs really got me. I’m a fig girl for sure! While this may be a more labor-intensive recipe, it will be worth the effort. For this sweet treat, I would add 2-4 droppers ofCBD oilinto the frosting recipe with the butter.
Granola, like Earl Grey Tea, is incredibly versatile. It is simple to make, and easy to adapt to all tastes. You can then add it to parfaits, ice cream, smoothie bowls, serve it with milk, or enjoy it dry, fresh out of the oven. Those are just my personal favorite ways to enjoy granola, there are so many tasty uses for granola! Adding CBD to this recipe could not be easier! Just add 3-6 droppers ofBare Tinctureto the mixture and toss well before baking.
This is an interesting flavor combination that really works. The smooth flavors of Earl Grey balance out the tart sweetness of the Blackberries. If you can get a hold of some fresh blackberries before they go out of season, I would definitely recommend stocking up! Just like with our Matcha Smoothie, you will want to fully blend your smoothie and THEN add yourCBD oiland puls for a few more seconds until fully incorporated.
If you are looking for a splurge-worthy treat to keep you cool, look no further. Loaded with a sweet and smooth flavor, this thick and creamy recipe can easily be adapted for a dairy-free diet by replacing just a few ingredients. Just like with your smoothies, you will want to blend this recipe per the instructions, THEN add yourCBD tinctureand pulse again for a few more seconds until fully blended. You can also top with thisCBD whipped Creamfor added herbal benefits and even more decadence.
If you try any of these delicious tea-inspired recipes with our suggested CBD add-in, show us on the gram and don’t forget to credit the original recipe creator in your posts as well! The Tea-meets-CBD based possibilities are truly endless, so feel free to branch out and use some of these recipe techniques to create your own drinks and treats, packed with the herbal benefits that both tea and CBD have to offer you! And if you happen to prefer a simple cup of tea, milk & honey optional, well that’s okay too!

Okay, I might still be on a rainbow kick. I’m not at all sorry, though, rainbows are delightful. This week, I’m back with another rainbow veggie recipe, but this time, we’re keeping the veggies raw and bright. It’s always so hot in July, and there’s nothing I’d like more than to continue my fresh, cold, crunchy food trend.
And whether it’s July or December, salad weather or soup weather, I’m honestly always craving Vietnamese and Thai food. I moved away from my favorite Thai restaurant in February and my life just hasn’t been the same since. I miss it every Friday. My typical Thai orders involve satay chicken and spicy curry, but no meal is complete without summer rolls. They’re addicting even though they’re so simple, and making them at home is not as hard as it seems. Plus, summer rolls are often served with peanut sauce, and I could bathe in that stuff (Kush Queen hasn’t approved a peanut sauce-scented bath bomb yet, so I guess I’ll stick to the Citrus andMatcha bath bombsfor now). But this peanut sauce is twice as dope because it’s got a healthy dose ofCBD oil. Who knew you could make peanut sauce even better.
Summer rolls are actually Vietnamese, but have become popular in Thai restaurants as well. They are different than spring rolls—it’s summer name was a seasonal play on spring rolls—primarily because they are not fried, and are usually a little bit bigger, but sometimes the terms are interchanged. Though I love a crispy spring roll, I prefer the refreshing chill from a summer roll. They’re often made with shrimp, but are also made with chicken, tofu, and just veggies on their own. It’s an all-around wonderful and versatile meal that’s easy to make too much of.
The most time-consuming part of this recipe is cutting up your rainbow veggies. I recommend julienne-style so you get an easier mouthful but also because it’s easier to roll. It always takes me forever but it’s worth it, I promise. In this recipe, I’ve also added a hint of sweetness with a few slices of strawberry and mango in my rolls. Once that’s done, everything else is smooth-sailing. Usually.
While you’re cutting your vegetables up, bring a pot of water to a boil. When the water is bubbling, add your vermicelli rice noodles and stir. Be mindful, because these noodles are very thin and do not take as long to cook as traditional noodles, it’s easy to forget about them. But if they’re overcooked, they’ll turn to mush in your hands and won’t make nicely-shaped rolls.
Prepare an ice bath for the noodles (ice baths are simply ice and water in a bowl that will shock your hot foods and immediately stop the cooking process). When your noodles are ready, strain them and toss them in the ice bath. When the noodles have cooled, I like to drain them and sprinkle a bit of rice vinegar and salt on them. I do the same thing when I make sushi rice, and I like the flavor it adds to the rolls.
Next, we’ll make the peanut sauce. I like to do this prior to assembling the summer rolls, because I find that summer rolls will do one of two things the longer they sit: they either get too soft and sticky and tear easily, or they get stiff and chewy.
The peanut sauce is so quick that you can throw it together in the microwave. You could also heat it on the stove, but I’m all about shortcuts. Combine all the ingredients except theBare CBD oilin a small bowl, and microwave for 15 seconds at a time. Depending on your honey and peanut butter, sometimes it can come to a boil quickly. I love crunchy peanut butter and think it adds a nice additional texture to the sauce, but creamy peanut butter works great, too. When the sauce is hot and the peanut butter melts with a quick stir, add theCBD oil. If you cook the sauce too long and it becomes thick, I find adding a little extra water at a time smoothes the sauce out and makes it much easier for dipping.
Lastly, let’s assemble!
Prepare a hot water bath in a wide bowl. It needs to be a higher temperature than lukewarm, but needs to be comfortable to the touch. Take one sheet of rice paper wrapper at a time, and submerge the sheet in the water. After a couple of seconds, place the wrapper on a cutting board or smooth surface. I like to dangle a very small bit of the wrapper from the edge of the cutting board to make it easier to grab.
Layer your ingredients. I usually start with noodles first but there’s no hard and fast rule. If you add a decorative top, like I’ve done with my fruit, place them slightly above the rest of the ingredients. It will help separate them with a wrapper layer and they’ll stay clean and pretty.
When I roll, I start from the bottom and follow the same rules as burrito-wrapping. Bring the bottom over your primary ingredients, and pull in slightly to tighten the wrapper around. Then, fold the left and right sides over. Lastly, continue to roll the rest of wrapper up, pulling inward to yourself with just enough pressure to keep everything tight.
You can cut your rolls in half, or in quarters, if you’d like. I really enjoy keeping them whole because I lose less filling when I dip them in the peanut sauce. However you’d like to plate them, I hope you enjoy them. I know I could eat them every day and never get bored. So, continue enjoying the rainbow this summer and save yourself a few bucks on delivery!
