For Getting the Vacay Started

Kush Queen's Gummies Rx Elevated CBD + Delta 8 THC Chews are THE best way to start your holiday (think Cameron Diaz circa 2012). Available in a variety of delicious fruit flavors, including Strawberry, Lemon, and Juicy Watermelon, Kush Queen's cannabinoid-infused gummies are a discreet and delectable treat, no doubt.

Handcrafted in small batches, our "Elevated" Gummies Rx options are made with a full-spectrum hemp extract and contain 10mg CBD + 10mg Delta 8 THC per gummy. They are part of our extra strength ratio series, so we recommend consuming one gummy to start, especially if you're a canna-newb.

Expect a lifted chill with a full-body buzz and one hell of a good time when ingested; just remember to stay hydrated, babes!

For an Infused After-Sun Skincare Routine

Your skin goes through a lot this season, basking in the Sun and its glory. We get it; we’re right there with you. But it's also time we start taking extra care of our body's largest organ... Skin, meet heaven.

After a long day on the sand, it's time to bring on the bubbles with Kush Queen's infused body wash! SOAKED is the world's first psychoactive body wash that delivers a potent dose of transdermal Delta 8 THC.

SOAKED features our advanced nanotechnology formula, which shrinks THC molecules to a size smaller than your pores…so you get high through your skin. But if you'd rather skip the psychoactive part, we also offer a CBD-only SOAKED experience. Either way, your skin receives a dose of anti-inflammatory properties with each fragrant scrub.

Now it's time to moisturize. After your infused shower, your skin will be ecstatic about this next step. Seriously, we're already excited for you! Once you're ready, we recommend indulging in Kush Queen's Melt CBD relief lotion. And we mean indulge.

We've combined cooling menthol, warming capsicum, and camphor oil for a cooling/warming sensation. Once applied, you should experience a tingling feeling taking over while your skin thanks you for this gift. Topped off with a complex blend of essential oils engineered explicitly for relief, Melt effectively eases muscle tension and helps reduce redness.

At the start of my career in cannabis, long before I founded Kush Queen, I learned about the path to legalization in California and the shared history of the LGBTQIA+ community with cannabis.

From that moment on, I made it my mission to honor the Queer activists who came before us, the true OGs we can thank for providing us with safe access to this plant.

At Kush Queen, Pride is Honoring a Shared History

In the 1980s, Queer community leaders in San Fransisco ushered in the beginnings of legal cannabis as they worked to ease health and wellness struggles around the AIDS epidemic. Their real-life needs brought legitimacy to the medical cannabis conversation. Pictures of my Queer community heroes hang in my office; Cleve Jones, Dennis Peron, and Mary Jane Rathburn look over me as I run Kush Queen.

Also on my wall of heroes is Marsha P. Johnson, another great reminder of gay liberation and how we got here today. Her beautiful smile beams back at me as I write this

For those not familiar with her story, Johnson was a trans activist, self-identified drag queen, and a true survivor living in New York City. She was also one of the first protesters at the Stonewall riots in 1969. Many recall Johnson having thrown the first brick outside of the club, but the truth is no one really agrees on who or what started it (was it a brick? a bottle? or city cobblestone?).

Nonetheless, everyone does agree that Johnson and fellow trans activist Sylvia Rivera played a massive part in the spontaneous protest against a police raid in those early morning hours. This act of social uprising is often viewed as the first Pride celebration, sparking a series of events that would change the LGBTQIA+ community forever. 

Pride is Revolutionary and Non-Conforming

Pride (as we know it today) is all about Queer celebration and love, but its roots are steeped in the journey of equal rights, visibility, and the acceptance of LGBTQIA+ people. It was never about rainbow-tinted capitalism, fleeting social media icons, and albeit, even super fun parades. Pride is about Queer liberation. 

"Stonewall was, at its core, about people reclaiming their narratives from a society that told them they were sick or pitiful or didn’t even exist," writes Shane O’Neill, a journalist for the New York Times.

After Stonewall, a new generation of gay activists emerged and organized, creating resources like the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR). These events and grassroots organizations focused on Queer individuals gaining access to equal rights as citizens while also helping the community find dignity, acceptance, and a sense of belonging within society. STAR, for example, provided housing and support to homeless LGBT youth and sex workers in New York City.

Pride is About Community and Peers Supporting Peers

For everyone at Kush Queen, Pride is about more than just a seasonal festivity, it’s about taking a stand, increasing visibility, and supporting our Queer communities all year round. 

This year Kush Queen is donating 20% of proceeds from our Pride Collection to The Social Impact Center, founded by beloved Queer cannabis hero Felicia Carbajal, as well as to the Trans Latina Coalition, a local Los Angeles community-led, and founded organization.

Kush Queen 2022 Pride Collection

Our Pride Collection for 2022 features a Delta 8 THC water-based and latex-safe infused lube and 1:1 Delta 8 THC and CBD Trans Flag-inspired bath bomb in honor of our trans brothers and sisters.

Queer Liberation is Still Needed

Currently, countless pieces of appalling legislation are moving through state governments as an attempt to target the rights of trans people, attack trans youth, and reverse decades-worth of progress. 

According to the advocacy group, Human Rights Campaign, over 300 anti-LGBTQ+ bills were proposed in 2022 alone.

Sam Ames, the director of advocacy and government affairs for The Trevor Project recently explained to CBS news "research has shown that as many as 85% of trans youth say that they are watching these debates over their identity play out,". Ames continues "the direct results of these bills when they pass are to take away things that we know are correlated with increased mental health and decreased suicide risk: sports team participation, seeing yourself represented in a classroom, being accepted by your parents and your healthcare professionals. These are all associated with significantly lower odds of attempting suicide." 

It feels like Queer liberation is more important than ever, especially with such blatantly coordinated attacks against people who identify as such. 

Pride is Personal

Inclusivity and visibility are part of Kush Queen’s DNA. From the all-gender restroom to the Queer individuals who appear in our content and work behind the scenes, Kush Queen's identity as a brand is unapologetically gay.

As I get choked up thinking about my own experiences and identity, I can’t help but think about what a personal intimate experience celebrating Pride is for me. As a human, I self-identify not only as the CEO of this company but as a Queer woman surrounded by countless other Queer people in my life. People who are my family, friends, and frankly, my inspirations. I think of my parents raising a Queer son in South Louisiana and not once did anything but accept him for who he was. 

Since its inception, Kush Queen has celebrated Pride (year-round) and has raised well over $40,000 for Queer organizations, something I'm incredibly proud of.

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.

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.

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.

Welcoming the newest addition to the Kush Queen fam, we present KINGDM Cosmetics Foto Set! Foto Set is an innovative setting spray that will not only keep you looking fresh all day but can actually improve your skin as you wear it. 

1. Foto Set CBD Setting Spray Helps Ward Off Maskne

Each bottle is packed with 250mg of CBD which can help reduce redness and prevent breakouts. Foto Set uses Kush Queen’s exclusive patent-pending Amplifi™ nanotechnology. This tech creates CBD molecules as small as 25 nano molecules in size, which is 2,000 times smaller than pores, allowing the product to fully absorb. Foto Sets unique formula paired with nanotechnology allows the CBD to work deep into the skin instead of just sitting on the surface. 

Model applying Foto Set CBD Setting Spray on make up.

2. Our Formula Is Safe For All Skin Types

Paired best with KINGDM’s Foto Blur, Foto Set should be applied after makeup or your daily skincare routine if you are bare-faced. Mist 2-3 sprays 12 inches or so from your face to get full coverage from the spray. The formula is light, non-sticky, and fragrance free made with sensitive skin types in mind. You’ll instantly feel refreshed after spraying and we even encourage a midday mist for a refresh and extra boost of CBD, especially when it’s hot out or after a flight.

3. Foto Set Is Versatile and Works For All Lewks

When wearing Foto Set over makeup, it will help prevent caking, creasing, and melting for up to 12 hours. The formula is not meant to completely matte your makeup, but rather keep you glowing in all the right places while controlling shine. Whether you’re going full glam or prefer a more natural lewk, it is the perfect final step in your routine. If you love a multi-use product, you can also use Foto Set mixed with eyeshadow to create a long lasting eyeliner. Simply spray a makeup brush with Foto Set, saturate with your choice of shadow, and apply. Voila!

At Kush Queen, we are always striving to bring you high quality products you can’t live without and that work for everyone. That’s why Foto Set is vegan-friendly, paraben, fragrance, and phthalate free, made in the USA, and not tested on animals. 

We hope you love the newest addition to our product fam as much as we do and stay tuned for the THC version at select dispensaries coming soon.

There’s nothing I love more than getting to use a product before we launch it. The excitement I feel is like I'm in on a secret or getting to sit in the front row of a roller coaster. Enter, the Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb expanding to feature 100mg and 200mg doses!

Secretly, I’ve been testing out the higher doses of Black Magic CBD Bath Bombs and using the deep black color to ground myself as we enter my favorite seasons, soaking season and hallo-wellness!

The History Of Our Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb

I am fresh out of a self-care Sunday bath with our new 200mg Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb. The moody black waters bring me back to the summer of 2017 when we began our quest to create a non- staining black cannabis bath worthy of Kush Queen. There were many stained tubs, hands, duds, and fails before we landed on our Black Magic formula. A formula that resulted in a beautiful deep, black bath that wouldn’t require you to work after relaxation!

Model laying in a tub holding a 100mg Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb

Black Magic was created as a seasonal, limited edition bath bomb but our community had other ideas. Once the 25mg Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb arrived it sort of never left. 

In preparation for the high dose launch, we scrolled through years of photos and found SO many Black Magic CBD baths. Black Magic is one of my favorite bath bombs we make at Kush Queen, don't tell the other bath bombs.

As the undisputed QUEEN of bathing, I love the Relax essential oil blend with lavender, chamomile, and frankincense and the dark moody waters make me feel like a witch goddess. 

Black Magic Is Available In 100mg and 200mg CBD Bath Bombs

Now, we are offering Black Magic in 100mg and 200mg as part of our 2020 hallo-wellness celebration. 

Over the years, one of the repeat community requests we hear is, will Black Magic ever expand to feature high doses? We heard you and black magic in higher doses is here to stay!

Model soaking in Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb in a white tub.

Our Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb is the perfect way to celebrate and welcome in the new season in a safe way that also doubles as a tool for healing. 

There is nothing better than stepping out of the tub feeling like you got a full body massage and seeing the last of the black waters run down the drain. I call it ultimate relaxation. 

Experience The Power of Black Color Therapy and CBD

There are a lot of preconceived notions about the color black. Most of us know the obvious that black is an achromatic color, which translates into without color. black is the representation of complete absorption of all light, which is where its power begins. 

In color therapy, sometimes called color healing, black is known to absorb negative energies and is commonly associated with protection. White Lotus Magazine reminds us, “black represents calmness, rest, and renewal. It carries energies of potential for growth and new possibilities.” 

Model fully submerged in Black Magic CBD Bath with only their face showing out of the water.

 

Combining the power of using black in color therapy with the CBD takes your self-care into the realm of deep spiritual healing. A 30-minute soak with a Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb will create an environment for grounding and increased awareness of your immediate reality.  

Bathing In Black Magic - How To Choose Your Dose

Try the 100mg if you are new to CBD baths or a seasoned pro with the 25mg Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb. 

Try the 200mg CBD Black Magic if you are super sore, stressed, or needing sleep. 

If you need even MORE CBD, we like to pair any dose of Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb with a dropper of bäre Daily Wellness CBD Tincture or Gummies Rx pre or post bathing. 

Conclusion

In 2020, there is no limit to the amount of self-care, grounding, CBD, and focusing on our immediate reality. Join us as welcome in soaking season and celebrate hallo-wellness with a Black Magic CBD Bath Bomb.

There’s no better time to incorporate CBD into your daily wellness routine. If the first six months of 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we need to do the hard work of learning what our body and mind need under the MOST trying circumstances. 

In honor of National CBD Day on August 8th, we are digging into why CBD makes sense as part of your wellness routine and sharing our four favorite daily wellness products.

The Wellness Continuum

The Global Health Institute defines wellness as "the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health." Yes, please!

If you think of wellness as a continuum from illness to optimal wellbeing, the concept of applying wellness to daily life is proactive, preventive, and driven by self-responsibility. 

That concept lays the firm foundation for adding CBD into our daily wellness practices - proactive and routine.

How Does CBD Impact Wellness?

CBD has many therapeutic benefits from easing nerves to reducing puffiness throughout the body, all of which can be considered preventative care. 

But CBD and the other 100+ cannabinoids' ability to support your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is its direct connection to wellness and maintaining homeostasis throughout your body. 

Dr. Ashley Jordan Ferira, brings up a great point by asking "remember in Biology class when you learned the 10-12 physiological systems of the human body? Cardiovascular, circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, integumentary, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal, urinary/excretory. See what’s missing?…the endocannabinoid system.” 

She goes on to perfectly describe your ECS as a “fancy thermostat or master regulator for your body.” “The ECS is critical in achieving homeostasis by regulating a wide variety of physiological processes.” 

When you think about what your ECS regulates, it is most of your body: central and peripheral nervous systems, immune system, and most organs, tissues, and glands spanning critical functions of physiology, behavior, immunology, and metabolism. 

Having your ECS functioning in tip top shape positively affects all body systems.

Supporting Wellness Through Your Endocannabinoid System

When using wellness as a tool to support overall health through your endocannabinoid system, you have different therapeutic levers at your disposal. Here are a few of the most common levers. 

  • Eating a well-balanced diet of whole foods
  • Exercising regularly
  • Stress-reducing activities such as practicing mindfulness and deep breathing
  • Cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN, and THC

You can use CBD and other cannabinoids to nourish your endocannabinoid system. When trying to achieve or maintain wellness, keeping your ECS in optimal form is ideal. 

Daily intake of cannabinoids is something you can easily add to your morning or nightly routines to support wellness.

This year marks the second National CBD Day. Officially launched in 2019 by cbdMD, a CBD company based in North Carolina, this pseudo-holiday has as many critics as supporters. Full disclosure, Kush Queen is participating in this year’s National CBD Day.

Our hot take? We recognize that National CBD Day began as 1 part marketing ploy and 1 part CBD awareness builder. This year is a reclaim moment, we’re here to make National CBD Day our own, and we’re celebrating with some tea, wellness, and sales. 

To kick things off, let’s unpack National CBD Day.

1. Social Justice and The Lack Of It

In 2019 Kush Queen CEO Olivia Alexander shared the tweet, “First, they put millions of people in jail for cannabis. Now, they have a National CBD day. HMMM, ok.” 

If National CBD Day is about spreading awareness of the cannabinoid, we expect brands to bring awareness to all sides of the industry. Especially the disparity between the past and present attitude on legal cannabinoids, lack of diverse representation within the industry, and supporting the greater community. 

You can study up on what CBD and cannabis brands are doing to support the social justice movement on Cannaclusive’s Accountability List

2. The Need for Transparency within the CBD Industry

CBD has been on a meteoric rise to mainstream access. Despite being able to buy CBD everywhere from gas stations to high-end hotels, many people don’t understand how to evaluate what they are putting into their bodies when it comes to cannabinoids.

When buying CBD, always check for COAs (Certificate of Analysis), look for the type of cannabinoids used in products, and understand how the CBD is processed. 

Companies that care about transparency will have information readily available about their lab testing, sourcing, and processing. 

You can find Kush Queen’s lab tests and learn more about the CBD we use at kushqueen.shop.

3. The Truth About The CBD Industry

CBD hit the market as a hot new active ingredient that so many industries could use along with the promise of a natural over-the-counter cure-all and a very loose public connection to cannabis. 

Do brands take advantage of that? 100% 

Are consumers buying products that have no real connection to wellness? Absolutely. 

As a company that sells CBD products, we want you to feel empowered with the facts to make decisions on whole-plant cannabis wellness rather than just blindly following the industry’s lead of adding CBD to everything and labeling it wellness or self-care.
