Celebrating Hallowellness is underway at KQ HQ! We can all use a little escape right now, amirite?! Fret not, our Glow CBD bath bomb creates a glow-in-the-dark bath that is the perfect way to celebrate the season. Plus, bathing with Kush Queen CBD bath bombs is always more than just a fizzy aesthetic moment. You are getting a three for one with cannabis-infused wellness, color, and sensory play. 

Let's get ready to create your Hallowellness glow-in-the-dark bath bomb party! Here is what we suggest to set the vibe.

The VIP, GLOW CBD Bath Bomb

Kush Queen GLOW CBD bath bomb in packaging.

We recommend using one GLOW CBD bath bomb for first-time CBD bath bomb users and two if you're an old pro or need a deeper feeling dose! 

Our Glow CBD Bath Bomb creates the perfect hallowellness celebration, featuring our best selling Relieve essential oil blend, 200mg CBD, and glow-in-the-dark mica pigment. These ingredients deliver equal parts wellness moment and fun spooky vibes creating a bath like no other!

Light It Up, For The Most Glow

With a little light charge before use, your GLOW bath bomb, infused with glow-in-the-dark mica powder (non-toxic and FDA approved for skin use) will glow once the lights are out. If you want to kick things up a notch and turn your glow bath all the way up, you’ll want to use a blacklight!

If you don’t have one at home, this one will do the trick, shop this blacklight. The blacklight will give your bath bomb an exciting extra pop; just be sure to keep the light far away from water. 

Set The Vibe For Your Spooky Soak

Kush Queen Hallowellness GLOW playlist

Sometimes you want to soak in silence and connect with your body and sometimes you need a fun escape. With the right playlist, the Glow CBD bath bomb turns your tub into a nightclub, VIP section with bottle service if you ask us!

We put together this vibey, 30 min playlist on Spotify. Crank it on before you enter the bath, slide into your soak, and be transported. 

Don’t Stop At The Bath, Bring On All The Glow

If you’re feeling extra (I always am, lol), toss on some glow bracelets to transform your tub into a disco. Here are a few inspo items we used at the GLOW photoshoot: glow-in-the-dark ice cubes for your club I mean tub drink, a glow-in-the-dark wig, and glow-in-the-dark nail polish.

Yesterday marked the launch of the world’s first-ever GLOW-in-the-dark CBD bath bomb! Created for a Hallowellness experience, GLOW delivers self-care plus fun just in time for Soaking Season.

Get to know our GLOW CBD bath bomb with a little Q&A with Kush Queen founder, Olivia Alexander.  

How did the Kush Queen GLOW CBD Bath Bomb get developed?

Olivia: Halloween is our favorite holiday of the year! Since this Halloween won’t be like any before, we thought, what better way to celebrate than with a bathing experience that GLOWS. Put on your glow-in-the-dark wig or glow makeup, and have fun with Kush Queen’s bath bombs that quite literally light up the room and offer targeted relief for pain or relaxation.

We know Kush Queen does a ton of research and testing. Who was the first person to test out GLOW?

Olivia: I’m always the first tester! Since day one I have been the KQ guinea pig for new products. Product development is one of my all-time favorite projects and once we started the GLOW CBD bath bomb brainstorming session, I could not wait for the first batch to be ready.

Kush Queen GLOW CBD bath bomb in the tub.

Now we have to ask, how was your first glow-in-the-dark test bath experience?

Olivia: No lie, as soon as I dropped the bath bomb in and turned off the lights, I screamed--LOL! After seeing how good the glow was I hopped in and took a couple of photos to share with our team.

It’s so exciting to see an idea come to life! Just like our first Halloween limited-edition CBD bath bomb, Black Magic, when the formula hits all the right elements and creates a moody moment that we know customers will love, it is very exciting!

Is GLOW more of a wellness moment or a fun spooky night in vibe? 

Olivia: 100% both! That's the one thing I love the most about our CBD bath bombs, they create a fun self-care moment. I say go all-in on the spooky vibes, put on a Halloween playlist, bring out any other neon or glow-in-the-dark items you have at home, and soak in the Hallowellness! 

The GLOW bath bomb uses our best-selling Relieve essential oil formula which includes Clove, Birch, Rosemary, Coriander, Black Pepper, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Spearmint, and Camphor to create a full-body topical application aimed at easing sore muscles and releasing tension. Combined with 200mg of CBD, GLOW is all treat and no tricks for the body! 

Kush Queen GLOW CBD Bath Bomb dissolving in a hand.

What does the KQ community need to know about GLOW?

Olivia: This CBD bath bomb needs light charging to perform best. Your GLOW bath bomb has been in a dark box while traveling to you. Most likely it has lost its charge. Exposure to direct UV light, fluorescent light, or sunlight for one hour will get it primed to glow!

Just like all Kush Queen CBD bath bombs, GLOW is non-toxic, cruelty-free and lab tested.

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!

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.”

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.

You already know that Kush Queen is a whole mood, but did you know that soaking with a nourishing CBD bath bomb is the perfect way to enhance your mood?

Mood is A State Of Mind That You Can Influence

Our mood is a temporary state of mind or feeling and, yes, you can do things to shift your mindset from a negative to a more positive state. 

Often stress and uncertainty cause us to fall out of balance, which can disrupt our mood and ability to function in a positive state. On the flip side, when our state of mind is just right, we do what we can to maintain and enhance it. Small acts like getting enough sleep, eating whole foods, and staying hydrated can have a positive effect on maintaining a positive mood.

Other times there’s a specific mood we want to create, so we draw on our tools and resources to make it happen. 

Mood Check One Two, One Two

When things are hectic, we often forget to check in with ourselves and truly take the time to listen. Take a few deep breaths and ask yourself these questions:

Am I in good spirits? 

Do I sense a meltdown coming on? 

Would peace and quiet time help me? 

Am I craving connection?

What is my body telling me?

Now that you have a better sense of what your mood is like, you can begin the process of narrowing down the right CBD bath bomb to suit your mood needs.

Soaking In A CBD Bath Bomb Can Shift Your Mood

By combining the healing power of CBD with effect-specific essential oil blends, Kush Queen Nourishing CBD Bath Bombs replenish our sense of wellbeing and raise our vibration every time we soak. 

With seven original blends and three dose levels to choose from, we are here to help you find the best CBD bath bomb for your desired mood.

Pride season 2020 is as close as we are going to get to reliving Stonewall. Our communities are calling out for solidarity and the leaders of every activist movement since then believe that we have everything we need to continue their transformative work. 

We cannot let our communities fight alone. Kush Queen believes that communities hold the power for dismantling inequalities. We’ve experienced this progress first hand. 

Join us in the shared movement of creating equality.

Why Does Kush Queen Celebrate Pride?

The Kush Queen brand essence We Are Our Community is our guide post, our ultimate truth if we are being vulnerable. Kush Queen started with listening to our community and recognizing the lack of representation in cannabis. Our brand promise ethos starts with we will always treat all individuals with care and respect and promise to use our passion for cannabis to help shape normalization and usage for everyone.

As Pride season kicks off, it's time to celebrate the shared history of cannabis and the LGBTQIA+ community and remember how the path to legalization started. It's time to do the work our brand promise beautifully lays out. 

In most states, Cannabis is being considered an essential during widespread pandemic closures. We know the beginning of the progress we experience today was started by marginalized LGBTQIA+ communities. 

1980s LGBTQIA+ activist and change leaders’ fight for liberation and the HIV/AIDS movement led to what we know as modern cannabis legalization. We would not have this progress without the work of these overlooked communities’ organizing and grass-roots efforts. These communities understood the power of coming together for the collective good to increase equality for suffering individuals.

By celebrating Pride, it’s our hope to honor the activists’ spirit and keep their passion for cannabis access alive, shape normalization and reverse inequalities.

Self-Care and Community Care

We can all get wrapped up in fighting for rights, gaining representation, or simply become exhausted from having to explain ourselves that we often forget to practice self-care and community care. 

Not because we don’t want it or know that we need to take care of ourselves, but because it's sometimes a radical act. 

Saying no to the extra email or endless social scrolling so you can take a before bed soak and sit with your feelings or pushing yourself through the “I don’t want to” self talk to get that workout in because you know giving your mind a rest is necessary is not always easy. 

To us “self-care is self-preservation,” and when we are called to be in “brave spaces rather than safe spaces,” taking care is a must. 

Audre’s Lorde’s thoughts on self-care remind us that these acts are not indulgent but radical when applying them to daily life. And also reminds us to rely on our communities for support. We cannot do this work alone.

In turn, community care becomes a functioning part of filling our cups and helping fulfill others as well. We thrive when self-care and community care become fully functional.

Kush Queen's Pride 2020 Community Partner

We believe in, understand and trust the power of community. Our concept of community led us to Asylum Connect our 2020 community partner. 

Asylum Connect is the first and only digital resource for LGBTQ+ asylum seekers and other persecuted LGBTQ+ people. Asylum Connect connects people with affirming communities that can help with essential needs including: medical, mental health, housing, transportation, translation, educational and employment services.

Everyday, Asylum Connect, a community-led non-profit uses digital spaces to facilitate the safe navigation of people fleeing persecution due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.

How does Kush Queen support our Pride community partner?

This year, we decided to take a different approach on how we support our community partners. 

As a cannabis company, we’ve been turned away and asked not to make public statements about supporting organizations. This “hi, we’ll take your money but don’t promote it” attitude influenced us to stop our support at donations. Even though over the past three years we have donated $30,000.00 between TransLife Line, Born This Way Foundation, Be You TiFul Foundation, and Operation Beagle Freedom; simply donating money is not enough.   

Kush Queen is committing $25K in cash and in kind donations during the course of the rest of 2020 to our partner. In addition to monetary donations, we will be using our platform to promote Asylum Connect on our social media, email marketing and websites. 

With a community of over 264,000 people, amplifying Asylum Connect’s mission, goals and active campaigns will be a focus point of Kush Queen's Pride messaging throughout this year.

An Invitation To Conscious Capitalism

We believe in the power of elevating humanity through business. When you purchase Pride products from Kush Queen you are empowering positive change for LGBTQIA+ community through Asylum Connect.

Our north star in conscious capitalism is to serve, align and integrate the interests of our community. Join us on this journey of evolving capitalism into a form of good. 

Happy Pride to all communities! Kush Queen using this time to honor the shared history of cannabis and standing against social injustice.

CBD Bath Bombs are a great way to unwind, relax, and get a nourishing dose of CBD. I’m sure you can agree that soaking in a CBD bath sounds nice, but how do CBD bath bombs work? 

Here is the answer:

CBD bath bombs create a full-body topical experience for your largest organ to soak in and absorb the CBD. 

Skin, your body’s largest organ, makes up about 16% of your body mass and is a powerful tool for absorbing cannabinoids and balancing your endocannabinoid system. As you soak in the tub, your body absorbs the essential oils and the CBD, like a sponge. A CBD bath bomb is a full-body topical application that allows for unparalleled all-over relief. These powerful molecules work together with your endocannabinoid system creating a synergistic effect that relaxes your entire body.

Beautiful Relax CBD Bath Bomb radiating its soft blue color.

A Full Body CBD Bath Bomb Experience

When you factor in the warm water, soaking with a CBD bath bomb causes our body temperature to increase and blood vessels to dilate. This improves circulation, pumping more nutrients and oxygen throughout our bodies while displacing toxins in areas of weaker flow.    

Soaking the entire body in CBD is so different from a localized application or any oral delivery method. The full-body application is why CBD bath bombs create a relaxing effect for so many people. 

Think of it this way: After a long day, if you wash your hands, your hands will be clean and will feel nice. But the rest of your body will still feel gritty. However, if you were to take a nice hot shower, your whole body would feel refreshed. 

The same is true for soaking your whole body in CBD. You feel the overall effect of your body absorbing the CBD, which delivers head to toe relaxation. 

What Are CBD Bath Bombs Good For? 

  • Creating the most relaxing bath. If you already like taking baths, a CBD bath bomb is a must-try.  
  • Easing into bed after a long day. Our Sleep 100mg CBD bath bomb will transport your body from the high function demands of the day straight into a slumber party for one. 
  • Giving your body a break after an unmanageable event. Our bodies hold stress and over time, these stressors can present in a variety of ways. CBD bath bombs can deliver the relief you’ve been craving. 
  • Taking the edge off after a stressful situation. Sometimes a long soak and a little me time coupled with a high dose CBD bath bomb are as good as a therapy session. 
  • Recovery from long workouts. To reduce swelling and release muscle tension, you’ll want to give this Kush Queen CBD bath bomb blend a try. 
CBD Bath Bombs dissolving a bright blur and green color.

Choosing the Right Dose For Your CBD Bath Bomb

Most high-quality CBD Bath Bombs will offer different doses of CBD to let you choose the strength. Our original 7 blends of Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs come in 3 doses: 25mg, 100mg, and 200mg of CBD. The right dose for you will depend on what’s going on with your body and mind at the time. 

We recommend choosing the 25mg CBD Bath Bomb if you:

  • Have never tried a CBD bath bomb.
  • Want to get your day started with a CBD bath.
  • Already take a high daily dose of CBD.  

We recommend choosing the 100mg CBD Bath Bomb if you:

  • Have trouble getting to sleep.
  • Had an extra hard workout. 
  • Like using CBD daily and want to up your dose. 
  • You didn’t feel the body high from the 25mg CBD Bath Bomb. 
  • Indulging in a self-care day. 

We recommend choosing the 200mg CBD Bath Bomb if you are:

  • Trying to take the edge off and induce relaxation. 
  • Working to fight off an infection. 
  • Recovering from an injury or trauma.
  • Detoxing or rebooting your body.

We are serious bathers. Long before Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs, we were first fans of long luxurious baths, bath bombs, mineral soaks, and bubble baths. To us, bathing is an under-appreciated art form with tons of benefits that most people don’t know. 

Now for the inspo story. We had an obsession with Lush bath bombs before developing Kush Queen CBD bath bombs. Let’s give credit where credit is due! 

A lot of research went into the development of Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs. 

Bath bombs were first invented in 1989 when product inventor and Lush co-founder Mo Constantine was inspired by the fast-fizzing action of Alka Seltzer. She achieved that fizzy base renown throughout tubs worldwide with a simple combination of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and citric acid. Point blank, the fizzy nature of Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs would not exist if it weren’t for Lush Co-founder Mo. Thanks, Mo!

What’s the difference between Lush Bath Bombs and CBD Bath Bombs?

There are 4 main differences between Kush Queen CBD bath bombs and regular bath bombs. 

The Relaxation Effect

Lush uses the power of color, glitter, and creativity to deliver relaxation to your bathtub. Sure, Kush Queen bath bombs are beautiful, but they are more than just aesthetics and a good smell. Our CBD Bath Bombs focus on intelligent design through the entourage effect. When essential oils and cannabis are combined, your body can feel the benefits of CBD and targeted effects deeper thus creating an entourage effect.

Color/Glitter

Admittedly we avoid anything too fun like crazy color burst or glitter because of our roots in cannabis. We never want to make a product that would attract children. We carefully choose our colors and type of color for two reasons. No 1, our CBD bath bombs will never stain your tub and No 2, we include color therapy in our product design to engage and soothe your senses. 

The Work Ratio

The other reason we avoid glitter or more “fun” additions is the related cleanup work afterward. A Kush Queen CBD infused bath is all about relaxing into the targeted effect of your choice, we don’t want to create work for you as a by-product. You just melted into your tub and feel like you got a full body massage from our CBD bath bomb, at this point most customers don’t mind that we intentionally skip the fun. 

Cannabis-Infused

While soaking, you absorb the cannabinoids and feel the interaction between the molecules and your endocannabinoid system. This biochemical reaction is the biggest difference between a Kush Queen CBD bath bomb and a non-infused bath bomb.

Your skin is your largest organ and a powerful tool for absorbing cannabinoids and balancing your endocannabinoid system. As you soak in the tub, your body absorbs the essential oils and the CBD like a sponge creating a full-body topical application that allows for unparalleled all-over relief.

That’s not to say we don’t combine our CBD bath bombs with a fun non-infused bath bomb. We love Crystal Bar Soap, Lush, and Da Bombs F-Bomb bath bombs too as a compliment to the deeper experience and feeling delivered by CBD or cannabis oil.

Conclusion

If you come across a bath bomb that stops you in your tracks, chances are we’ve tried it! The bath lover in us will always be working to improve every aspect of our CBD Bath Bombs based on our product intention goals: 1) Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs must be fizzy and dissolve quickly, 2) Our color will not stain your tub, 3) Soaking in a Kush Queen Bath Bomb will deliver deep relaxation through your endocannabinoid system while you experience the benefits of cannabinoids.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, I contemplated if we should even celebrate 4/20 at all. It’s a strange time and the rate at which the world is changing we never know what tomorrow will bring. What would have been a month-long celebration has turned into telling the Kush Queen story; one of fear, courage, commitment, and the plant we can't imagine living without. 

This post will continue to be updated, if this is your first time here, start at the top :) see you at the bottom. 

The Power of Being Seen

The greatest lesson I’ve learned along the journey of Kush Queen is the priceless value of being seen. This plant has allowed me to be seen and to pass it on and see others. When you experience the act of seeing others, you cannot lose. Since cannabis is an emerging industry people are worried about compliance, funding, and marketing their product. All of those things are important, but importantly are the people who use the product. 

Other than the 18-35 year old white male stoner, most people’s cannabis experience has been invisible, not unlike their narrative. At Kush Queen, we see all types of people with differing beliefs and life paths seeing themselves and that’s what we’re here for.

Cannabis Is Vital

A few weeks ago, California deemed cannabis as essential and I could not imagine getting through this pandemic without cannabis, it's more than essential to me it's vital.

I have been self-isolating for weeks now, our team has been working via Zoom with our WFH team. A few of our brave employees continue to help ship orders and keep our products on the shelves of California dispensaries. Our small team has maintained and made me extremely proud on all fronts. They have continued to care for each other, the products, and our customers despite living in a crisis. They have shown something that I believe we all need to have right now, something that I believe my purpose led me to discover in myself through Kush Queen: courage. 

Kush Queen Cannabis Was Born

It’s not every day that people start companies with $0 and pipe dreams, yet that's how it all started. From our family kitchen and garage, we developed our first CBD products. At the time, our business was called The Crystal Cult where we made Swarovski crystal vape pens. Even though we experienced early success, something was missing. We wanted to create a more accessible wellness-focused products and share our family’s passion for cannabis. 

Our namesake, Kush Queen was born from a community favorite vape - The Kush Queen and our unwavering commitment to our community has never changed. You guide us.

The Flagship - Cannabis Bath Bombs

At this time, I had been working in the cannabis industry for a while and didn’t see many topical cannabis products that spoke to me. Weird textures, dense oils, the wellness element was missing and I kept thinking, where is the intersection of Lush-like quality and cannabis. 

That thought track led to what you experience today with Kush Queen Bath Bombs. Since day one, my mom and I worked and reworked the blends and processes until they were high-quality and potent. And like any good mother-daughter team, my mom would not allow me to take credit for the formulations of our flagship product, cannabis-infused bath bombs. I can admit it, she did all the heavy lifting.

The two most important elements we wanted to use in our formulas were high-quality ingredients and the entourage effect. Those two qualities will always be found in Kush Queen Bath Bombs.

One Part Fear, Three Parts Courage

It’s one thing to make something that you love and a completely different experience to sell it. I will never forget the first few sales because they were truly unnerving and exhilarating.

From the products to the marketing I was constantly making a creative statement and putting my view of what I thought cannabis could be for people out there. Naysayers? I’ve heard it all from I’m ruining my life to I’m going to hell BUT I believed deep down in my soul and heart that what I had to say mattered. That a cannabis brand from my perspective would be a vital part of the movement towards legalization, the social acceptance of cannabis globally, and hopefully eventually the end of the war on drugs. 

Over the years, we’ve faced every type of shut down from selling CBD online to violating Instagram’s TOS policies and legal weed. Another hill would be climbed, all would be well and then POOF, at any given moment we would be shut down. 

With every bit of growth, my gratitude was frequently met with fear, because you never really knew if it all would come crashing down.   

We have weathered many storms personally and professionally from bank account shutdowns to my mom’s unexpected brain surgery. Through it, all Kush Queen has kept me going and I’ve always continued to get up despite feeling like quitting many times. 

Brene Brown sums it up well in Daring Greatly, “Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” It wasn’t until recently that I realized what the journey of Kush Queen has taught me. Now I know it's courage. 

Join us in our ode to the journey and honoring what keeps us going during this epic month of 4/2020. Follow Kush Queen Shop and Kush Queen Co for weekly giveaways, LOLs and deets.

Evolution and Innovation 

As the popularity of our cannabis infused bath bombs grew, so did our team and capabilities. During this time, Michael Sawyer, my fiancé and business partner, was working behind the scenes to create a scalable process for making cannabis oil water soluble and transdermal. 

This technology would eventually fuel the development of our nano topical products

Let’s take it back to 2017. Michael is passionate about infusing beverages of all kinds and understood the limitations to cannabis oil. After all, we are talking about actual oil. Even just 2 years ago, drinks on the market in California were dosed with THC and CBD oil which resulted in the cannabinoids floating on top of the liquid, pretty gross.  

Delivery Methods Are Key

More than the strange oil element, edibles were not a choice for a lot of people. You see, when you eat cannabis oil your body processes it through the stomach and liver. For the average person this process takes at least an hour, which often results in people being unable to get their dose right or consistent. Moreover, your liver converts the THC to 11-hydroxy-THC, which scientifically is a completely different, more potent molecule. 

At this point Michael has been in the lab non-stop. When he finally achieved his nano particle water soluble cannabis technology we knew Kush Queen would have more effective topicals and more freedom in formulas. 

I had long wondered why every cannabis infused topical was either a salve or oil. It was because the science tech didn’t exist and cannabis oil needed a carrier. With Michael’s nano technology, for Kush Queen that was no longer an issue.

The First Test - Getting High In The Shower

One night I was struggling to sleep and having lung problems at the same time so I couldn’t smoke. Michael was up to the challenge of trying to help me and dosed some nano THC into our body wash. I jumped in the shower and lathered up with excitement as I am always ecstatic to be his guinea pig. 

As I lifted my head up from drying off my lower body, I felt it hit. I was high...from a shower gel. You cannot imagine my excitement as I walked in the bedroom baked like a fresh cookie. Red eyes and giggly, Michael was ecstatic - it really worked. 15 minutes later, I was asleep. 

Development began on Kush Queen Topicals

The next day we started working on what would be our cannabis infused nano topicals: Soaked Shower Gel, Melt Relief Lotion, and Kush Queen Lubricant. 

I had been using cannabis topicals for about 10+ years at this point and knew all the things I disliked: coconut oil in everything, people selling infused oil as a lube, salve blends that didn’t work on my pain. And most importantly the fact that so many of these products were not actually delivering the cannabis directly into my bloodstream. 

We knew the ingredients had to be clean and we wanted to use doses that could really transform your daily bathroom experience. 

Soaked CBD Shower Gel was the first to be born. A lightweight, clean body wash with a transdermal dose of CBD. Scented with citrus, parbean, phthalate, and free of any harmful ingredients. 

Melt CBD Pain Lotion was the second of the Kush Queen nano topicals family, an instant hit because of its organic icy hot feel. Melt doesn’t just take the pain away, it helps it stay away. 

Kush Queen Lubricant was a response to the most popular cannabis lubricant on the market being coconut oil based and not an actual lubricant. That lube took 1 hour plus to work and was not latex safe (ew). Creating an inclusive lube for the v, the b, and the p, that was latex free, toy-safe and made with the most sensitive skin in mind was our goal. Fast forward 2 years and KQ Lube is now our number 2 best selling product.

Sometimes You’re A Little Early

At this point, our excitement around launching Kush Queen topicals is high. We go to market and realize the topicals category is a joke to the cannabis industry. Looking back on the experience, 2 things came into play here. It was 2017, the wellness element and importance of delivery methods in cannabis was nowhere near what it is today and second, most people that had tried topicals had the same unsatisfying experiences we had.

 That’s when the Kush Queen promise was created. Given we had an uphill battle to convince people that our topicals really worked and were better for your body, we wanted to be transparent and educate our community on why and how our topicals were effective. On all product packaging and product pages, we inform the community about our nano tech and how Kush Queen ensures all of our products have the best delivery method possible for quick absorption.   

 When it comes down to it, we understand and take the responsibility of being innovative in the cannabis industry. 

You can rely on the Kush Queen promise - All products are handmade in the USA, we never test on animals, we always disclose the full ingredients list and type of cannabis, we will continue to seek innovation in all aspects of our company, and most important to us, we are committed to using our platform and voice for the highest good. 

Part 3

Over the last 4 weeks, Kush Queen has grown in ways we could have never imagined when starting this company. Within weeks of reaching our fourth birthday, we are exactly where we want to be, sharing our vision of daily wellness with our community. 

Given the times, living with this new shared perspective for a little over a month really got us reflecting, tuning in and connecting with Kush Queens everywhere. Part 3 of our story shares the lessons we’ve learned along the way. 

You, Our Community Shares Our Vision

Kush Queen started with a vision to create a space for all types of people in cannabis, in particular, those who didn’t feel like they had a place. Over the last 4 years, we’ve grown into a community of over 22,000 with a shared view of using cannabis in everyday wellness.    

The Kush Queen Promise

Mid-last year, we committed to bringing the Kush Queen promise to life in every aspect of our company. With each promise, we want you to know that we are real people on the other side of the products that we love so so much. 

  1. Handmade in the USA. All of our products are handmade in our Southern California facility. Our small team has production down to a science. Through the recent pandemic events, we’ve never been more proud of seeing the Kush Queen team work together, take care of one another and go the extra mile for customers. 
  2. Never test on animals. We think doggos should be running things anyway. Animals reign supreme at KQ HQ. 
  3. Transparency. We hope you can feel this when you choose our products. You knowing exactly what’s in each Kush Queen product is very important to us. We’ve also started sharing more behind the scenes of Kush Queen. We are a small womxn-owned, family-run company. Your support truly means the world to us. 
  4. Innovation. To us, that means relentless innovation with cannabis molecules. If you read Parts 1 and 2, you know that each of our product lines delivers some type of innovation from the delivery method to nano CBD. Constant improvement is our love language. 
  5. Social Responsibility. If innovation is our love language, social responsibility is our soapbox. We will never spot fighting for and supporting those facing inequalities. Kush Queen is committed to using our platform and our voice for the highest good. You will always be seen, represented and given space. 

What’s Next?

Innovation is leading us to the next chapter of Kush Queen, just like it always does. We are beyond excited to launch Kindgm THC Primer next week in California. Following the primer launch will be expanding Kingdm with an infused foundation. 

Last month, we delivered our first minor cannabinoid focused products with the expansion of Gummies Rx Bliss and Sleep. Look forward to more minor cannabinoid products. Our team was in the lab, as recently as last night testing new blends for effectiveness, potency and exploring benefits.

While a lot has changed since we first started, it's you and this amazing community of wellness-minded people that keep us going. 

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy throughout these challenging times. 

We love you! - Team KQ

  

 

Take Advantage of CBD Bath Bombs, Sans Tub

Being at home right now has us exploring all the ways we can use CBD Bath Bombs. If you live in New York or Los Angeles, chances are you only have a shower or a less than desirable tub situation. We’ve been there and we’re on a mission extend the #seriousbathersclub to baths of all sorts. 

Let’s walk through how to use our CBD Bath Bombs to unwind after a long day - WITHOUT A BATHTUB! 

The essential bathtub-less CBD Bath Bomb soak.

The Setup - You’ll Need 4 Things

Chances are you already have the needed items! 

  1. A Kush Queen CBD Bath Bomb. Take advantage of Shield for Immunity’s full body immune boosting properties or if you are soaking before bed, try a 200mg Sleep Bath Bomb to ease into a totally relaxed state.
  2. A Reusable Storage Bin. This can be any container you can comfortably soak your feet in. Try reusable storage bins from previous moves and turn them into foot tubs! These are perfect because you can soak up to your calves for more targeted lower body relief. 
  3. Three Bath Towels. 2 for proactive measures to make clean up easy and keep water off the floor and 1 for post-soak dry off.
  4. Water. Depending on the size of your bin and water source, think through how you are going to safely fill up the bin. We’ve had plenty of LOL moments not being able to carry the heavy, water-filled bin from the sink to our chosen soak spot. Take a sec and think this step through.

To kick this CBD Bath Bomb soak into a full blown self-care moment, grab a scrub and finishing lotion to seal everything up. You will not regret trying Renew CBD Sugar Scrub and Melt CBD Relief Lotion. These two in addition to the CBD Bath Bomb increase your total CBD intake and have different targeted effects.

The Essential Bathtub-less CBD Bath Bomb Soak

Location, Location, Location - Choose A Chill Spot

Before anything can get rolling, choose a soak spot that you find relaxing. Some ideas are looking out your favorite window, near a plant nook or in the living room with Netflix queued up. With your soak spot picked, lay down towels on the floor to make easy work of cleaning up. Don’t forget your dry-off towel.

Just Add Water

Similar to a full-body bath, start with a warm water base! Gauge the weight of your bin once it’s been filled with water, then choose if you want to fill up in your tub or use a pitcher to avoid the heavy transport part. 

Have old injuries? A taller soaking bin can be a great tool if you have past injuries, hardware from surgery or swelling. After a long day, this CBD bath bomb foot soak will deliver relief to these areas.

Add Your CBD Bath Bomb

Drop your CBD Bath Bomb into the bin and let it fully dissolve. Use this time to get the rest of your essentials; a book, headphones, snacks!

Depending on the dose of your bath bomb, you might want to break the cbd bath bomb up. Unwrap your cbd bath bomb from the shrink wrap and put it back into the holographic bag or use a close-able small bag. Use the back of a brush or a countertop to break your bath bomb apart. When it’s evenly divided you can toss it into your foot soak.

Soak Your Stress Away

For 20 to 30 minutes, your only to-do is soaking and breathing! It’s so nice to allow your mind to just...be without the noise! Give yourself grace, space, and freedom. Ask yourself what do you need in this moment or the moment you’re done with your bath bomb at least! 

The Finishing Touches

The cherry on top of a good foot soak is an exfoliation and lotion to seal in the goodness. Renew CBD Sugar Scrub delivers a soothing skin buff with less redness and irritation than we’ve experienced with others. 

To wrap everything up, do a self-massage from your calves to your toes with Melt Relief Lotion. Ahhhhh, now sit a minute and let the relief sink in.

The Benefits of Kush Queen CBD Self-Care

Aromatherapy

The essential oils in Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs have the power to transport you to a different time. Even if scents are not your love language, the targeted effects of the unique blends create a full body experience that spans from your body’s biggest organ, the skin to the emotion related sense, smell. 

Dedicated Time

The essential bathtub-less soak gives you the freedom to make what you want out of your soak time. Soak solo or invite someone to soak with you and this turns into a spa-like environment where time pauses. 

Full Body Relief

While hunkering down at home, 30 mins of dedicated time to do nothing but soak can change your mindset and boost your mood. From head to toe, you can feel stress and tension melt away. Give yourself permission to turn your brain off when soaking, unplug and enjoy the now of soaking in a warm CBD foot bath. 

Conclusion

Give a non-traditional CBD bath bomb soak a try! Shop our favorite blends: 100mg Relieve CBD Bath Bomb, 200mg Sleep CBD Bath Bomb, and Shield For Immunity

If you are ready for the full-monty version, grab a Renew Sugar Scrub and Melt CBD Lotion! The cooling effect of Melt delivers the finishing touch that will leave you looking forward to your next soak!
