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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Part 1

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 first sold batch of Kush Queen CBD Bath Bombs.

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.

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

As humans, I think it’s safe to say we’re all feeling the global impact of COVID19. People are getting sick. Others are panicking. Workers are getting laid off. Businesses have been forced to close or have done so voluntarily. Those who can are self-isolating to try and help flatten the curve. 

I personally was already experiencing tons of change recently. It was all positive and of my own accord and then BAM!!--Coronavirus interrupts my plans and any sense of control I thought I had. 

Like most millennials, I waver between anxiously reading updates and wondering what the future holds to seeking comic relief and positivity from memes and content online. I’m incredibly fortunate to have taken a new job at Kush Queen that allows me to work from home. This past week I began self-isolation and only leaving the house to walk my dogs and pick up essentials. 

Seeing as how none of us has any clue how long this will last, I needed to regroup in order to adapt to my new lifestyle. The good habits I’d built recently will have to be restructured to fit my present reality and modified to include more self-care. So I’m documenting what a day of self-care in isolation looks like with the help of Kush Queen.

Namaste Inside during the COVID quarantine and use CBD to get me through!

Focus Area - Mental Health

Quarantine Routine - Daily Mental Moment

Since I’m not getting up to go to an office anymore, I have extra time that I didn’t use to have in the mornings. I’m taking this moment to meditate, which I’ve struggled to do even in more certain times. This is where I take my first dose of Bare CBD Tincture to help my mind remain calm as I remember WTF is going on in the world right now. After I hold the tincture under my tongue for a minute or so, I begin breathing consciously through my nose and apply Melt Pain Relief lotion to my already tense shoulders, massaging any knots and tightness out. 

I sit in a comfortable position with my eyes closed and recite the Reiki ideals to ground myself before I begin breathing deeply in through the nose and out through the mouth. My mind wanders many times during this meditation, but I stick with it for a ten minute period that seems to last an eternity. Managing stress is so important during a health crisis like this and I take a moment to be grateful for this short pause before I dive into my day. 

Try This: Commit to sitting quietly for 2 minutes every other day. Build up the length and frequency of your meditations as you grow into this new practice

Movement and Wellness are two keys to staying healthy during the Covid-19 quarantine.

Focus Area: Physical Wellbeing

Quarantine Routine: Prioritize Exercise

Mid-morning I’m ready to move my body and expel the pent up energy that’s been building since this all started.

First I get out my foam roller and begin rolling out my back and legs to loosen up. On one of my recent Target runs, I picked up a weighted jump rope, so I go out on my patio and begin jumping to get my heart rate up. Gyms across the state are closed, but a plethora of workout videos are available online. Today I chose a live workout on YouTube led by a trainer I’ve worked with at F45 Hermosa Beach as part of a fitness challenge. I was really enjoying the community at the gym so doing this workout with a familiar face helps me feel more connected while I adapt to exercising at home. It’s a small way to boost my energy levels and release the endorphins and endocannabinoids my body needs to function at its best. 

Try This: Pick a time of day for movement and add it to your calendar! Treat it like an appointment and prioritize this moment for yourself.

Quarantine Like A Kush Queen means full body self care!

Focus Area: Personal Hygiene, Pain Relief

Quarantine Routine: Stay Germ and Pain-Free

After the class, I take a 25mg CBD Rx Gummy before I stretch and roll out again then head for the shower. Since my intention is to up my self-care to quarantine appropriate levels, I start by rinsing off then shutting off the flow of water so I can scrub down with Renew CBD Lavender Sugar Scrub. The smell transforms my bathroom into a luxurious spa while I buff my skin and soothe it with CBD and jojoba oil.

Before I finish showering, I apply a pump of our Transdermal Soaked CBD Shower Gel (found only in licensed CA dispensaries) and a pump of our Pure CBD Soaked into my hand and lather up, making sure the formula covers my whole body for a head-to-toe topical dose of nano THC and nano CBD. Soaked relieves pain, combats bacteria, and has an energizing and mood boosting citrus scent--exactly what I need right now. I let the formula penetrate my skin for about a minute before my final rinse. 

Functional workouts can be hard on my knees, so I bust out my jumbo 800mg CBD bottle of Melt and massage a full pump on each knee. The cooling sensation from the menthol and peppermint kicks in within seconds and soothes away any lasting soreness. My feet and shoulders also get a layer of Melt before I get dressed. After dressing, I follow the CDC protocol for hand washing and get on with my day. 

Try This: Make staying clean easy and enjoyable by keeping your hygiene products close to your pamper products. A little Melt on those raw, incessantly washed hands soothes like no other.

When big change hits, establishing a new normal is key.

Focus Area: Mindset & Environment

Quarantine Routine: Create Consistency

It may seem ideal to work from home in sweats, but I personally do better work when I get ready and put on clothes. Granted, it’s athleisure wear and a Kush Queen cropped hoodie, but a little goes a long way in times like these. My makeup routine is scaled back, but my CBD skincare regimen remains unchanged. A layer of Defynt goes on my face first, followed by a moisturizer, then CBD Foto Blur, and lastly an SPF 50 tinted moisturizer. Since I still go outside for walks it’s important to protect my skin from the sun and the elements.  

Try This: Pick one routine task you did before COVID19 and make it non-negotiable. Take a shower, put on clothes, fix your hair--these small steps give you back a sense of normalcy when everything else feels so out of control.

Self live in self isolation is crucial.

Quarantine Routine: Come Home to Yourself

Focus Area: Stress Relief, Sexual Healing

My day of self-care wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t also make a night of it, so I draw a hot bath and soak with a 200mg CBD Love Bath Bomb for 30 minutes. The weight of the current crisis collects in my body throughout the day and I’m ready to let that go. I dry off and get in bed, my Kush Queen CBD Lube within arm’s reach. 

Having been single for quite some time now, I’m no stranger to taking care of my own sexual needs. But times like these make the escape of a good orgasm borderline therapeutic. Orgasms release hormones like oxytocin (the love hormone) and dopamine that improve mood and promote good sleep. Plus, they release physical tension, and heaven knows I’m carrying plenty of that right now. 

If I’m being honest, it’s not easy for me to focus on pleasure when my mind is overwhelmed, so having a tool to bring me into my body is essential right now. Kush Queen Lube is made with nano CBD, which kicks in immediately. I liken the effect of the lube to being about twenty minutes into amazing foreplay in about a minute. In fact, I find it hard to focus on anything else when my most sensitive sexual organ is stimulated so thoroughly. A few moments later the job is done and I’m ready to drift off blissfully to sleep.

Try This: Add pleasure to your nighttime routine. This can be a gentle foot or shoulder massage before bed with Melt or your favorite essential oil, if an explosive orgasm isn’t in the cards for you. 

One Day at a Time

None of us truly knows how long this situation will last, but I’m certain that whatever reality we return to will be much different than the one we knew just a few weeks ago.

That said, listen to your body, let your mind rest, and draw from the tools you have to help you stay positive and healthy during this global health crisis. 

You can still order Kush Queen online for the foreseeable future and we’ll be releasing content regularly to help build a community amongst our team, our customers, and our followers. 

Stay safe, be well, and look out for each other!

Holiday survival mode is real, and what’s even more real is holiday survival with the help of CBD bath bombs. As we said in the Kush Queen CBD Gift Guide, this time of year is the most wonderful and the busiest season for many of us. The shopping, the travel, the festivities, the weather – they all converge during the holiday season. Which can send us into a flurry of excitement and overwhelm. If we know anything here at Kush Queen, it’s how to keep calm and carry on with the help of our CBD bath bombs.

Here are our top picks for surviving the holidays with CBD Bath Bombs but first a quick recap of why CBD makes sense this time of year.

The Benefits of using CBD Bath Bombs, Holiday Edition

  1. A Full Body CBD Topical – Your skin is your biggest organ, so by submerging your body fully into the CBD-infused water you are experiencing a full-body topical application. Think relaxed muscles, soothed aches and eased tension across your entire body. 
  2. Immune System Boost – CBD is a known anti-bacterial. The holiday season typically brings more travel and contact with people (read as more exposure to germs). We like to up our CBD daily intake this time of year as a preventative measure to keep our endocannabinoid and immune systems nourished.  
  3. A 20-Minute Recharge – During this time of year, we often put a stronger emphasis on others rather than ourselves. Whether it’s going to every party we are invited to or squeezing in a last-minute gift-getting errand at the end of the day, the holidays are a hectic time. Doing a once a week CBD infused bath can be those 20 minutes you didn’t know how bad you needed. It’s easy to get swept up in the shuffle, here’s a reminder to take some time to let your body relax and your mind rest.

Holiday Survival CBD Bath Bomb Picks 

Kush Queen x Alice + Olivia 200mg CBD Bath Bomb

Prep for your busy day of travel or your holiday shopping stroll by slathering on the lotion and soak in a high-dose of healing at night by combining the CBD bath bomb with the bubble bath.

CBD and Flu Season Prep – Get My 5 Tips For Staying Healthy

Flu season is upon us, there is no denying it! It’s that time of year where a cough and sneeze can send me into deep panic. I’ve been on the fence for years about the flu shot. Do I? Don’t I? It’s kind of crazy that it depends on who you ask. In my current CBD and flu season immune-boosting preparation routine, I stick to the basics. 

Here’s a walk through of my immune system boosting routine to ward off colds, flu and other ailments. In my CBD consumption diary you can see what a typical week looks like for me during this time of year.

Olivia Alexander talking about using CBD to boost the immune system.

CBD is My Go To For Immune System Support

One thing is for sure, CBD helps keep my immune system strong AF. Back when I was on a lot of pharmaceuticals, my immune system was compromised because the medications were affecting my white blood cell count. 

This made me prone to catching everything including the dreaded flu. After two bad flu seasons where I was completely taken out for two weeks at a time, I developed a serious CBD and flu season regimen. I am happy to report *knocks on wood* that I have been able to avoid getting the flu for the last two years. 

In regards to using CBD in this setting, one of the biggest things I think people miss when it comes to this time of year is that you have to up your daily dose. In the words of Drake “ALL THE WAY UP!” 

My CBD and Flu Season 5 Step Prep Breakdown

  1. Serious Hand Washing – This step is surprising always overlooked. If you are out in public, be mindful of regularly washing scrubbing your hands. I try to go by the 45 second rule and get everything from palms to fingernails. 
  2. Essential Oils – It’s no secret I believe in and love using essential oils. Every Kush Queen product is based on targeted effects delivered by essential oils for a variety of uses. My go-to for this time of year is the Shield for Immunity blend which is inspired by the 15th-century legend of four thieves.
  3. Baths – Submerging your body in warm water has multiple health benefits that go well beyond leisure. You’ll find me taking a bath almost every day this time of year. 
  4. Vitamins – Having a good balance of minerals and vitamins is crucial to giving your immune system the fuel it needs to fight off infection. I’m not known for having the most balanced diet so I cover the necessities with daily vitamins. 
  5. CBD Loading – Think carb loading like before a workout but with CBD. I up my daily dose and use a mix of delivery methods when I’m trying to keep my immune system healthy. 

CBD is so much more than making great products to me, it’s also about how you use it within your daily life. So many of us now have access to CBD, but don’t know how much to use. Here’s a week inside my CBD infused life to give you insight into how the cannabinoid works for me!

Olivia Alexander’s CBD Consumption Diary

Sunday November 3, 2019 – A Stay At Home Day
6:15am

My little cloud son, Reggie wakes me up early. After I feed him I dose my coffee with our 1000mg Bäre Tincture. One dropper is 33mg of CBD. I also pop in my vitamin gummies as I start my Sunday. 

3:30pm 

I did chores all day so I am feeling pretty gross and in need of a hot shower! I jump in the shower and use my Soaked shower gel. The rich lather and bright tangie scent invigorate me for the rest of the afternoon. I’m feeling refreshed!

10:45pm

I have 2 Gummies RX before bed with my nightly edible for sleep. Each CBD gummy is 25mg bringing my dose to 50mg. 

Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 100mg of CBD

Kush Queen Soaked Shower Gel lathered up in the shower.

Monday November 4, 2019 – Typical Workday

8:15am 

After my morning Shower with Soaked, I lather up my face in Defynt. Then follow it up with our alice and olivia x kush queen collab CBD body lotion. Monday morning’s call for a triple threat treatment, chill on the inside means chill on the outside! 

11:30am

A bunch of Monday crap (no need to sugar coat) comes my way and I find myself feeling super stressed. Stress is a KILLER to your immune system and increases your risk of getting the flu. Running a business is non-stop problem solving and adapting, so I keep a 1000mg Bäre in my purse at all times. When I feel stress coming on, I have 2 droppers of 1000mg Bäre for a 60mg dose of CBD. 

9:00pm 

A day like today calls for a high dose CBD bath bomb! I soak in our 100mg Shield For Immunity CBD bath bomb. This bath contains a mix of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils known to boost the immune system. The cinnamon really gets me every time and I feel so deeply relaxed, I head straight to bed.

Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 220mg of CBD

Tuesday November 5, 2019 – Work From Home Day

5:45am

It’s an early morning with my puppy son and I slept wrong. My neck is KILLING ME. For me that means a topical and oral approach. First I apply Melt CBD Lotion to my neck. Then, I take 5, 25mg CBD GummiesRx. 

12:30pm 

I’m not feeling so great, so I decide to work from home today. Acknowledging that my pain has reached a more serious level, I medicate with THC. 

9:45pm

My energy is low and the bed is calling my name. I rub my body down with alice and olivia x kush queen cbd body lotion and the lavender helps ease my mind and drift to sleep. 

 Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 180mg of CBD, 164mg of THC

Wednesday November 6, 2019  – Crazy But Typical Workday

Full transparency here! I had a crazy day at the office and forgot to log my consumption. I know I had 2 CBD gummies in the morning. 

Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 50mg of CBD

A CBD and Flu season must have is Bäre CBD Tincture.

Thursday November 7, 2019 – Crazy But Typical Workday

For the second day in a row, my day took me over. I used to really get down on myself when this happened, but I’m practicing acknowledgment and acceptance. 

9:30pm

I need a CBD bath. After sitting in traffic all day, my body and neck is a mess. So I draw a bath for one of our new high dose 200mg CBD Bath Bombs in the Relax blend.

I forgot my morning dose of CBD, so I double up on my night dose. One full dropper of Bäre and 3, 25mg CBD GummiesRx put me right to sleep. 

Total Daily Consumption – Approx. 300mg of CBD

I realize I’ve been in contact with people that were sick so I add an emergen-C  to my morning routine. In the shower, I scrub my entire body with our Renew CBD Sugar scrub and then I wear our CBD primer Foto Blur under my makeup for the day.

Today was looonnngggg. I got home way past my bedtime. When this happens, I have a mandatory before bed bath and then lather down with Melt CBD Lotion. I use a 200mg Sleep CBD Bath Bomb and the level of relaxation and ease I felt before bed is why I make Kush Queen CBD products!

Kush Queen CEO, Olivia Alexander talks CBD and Flu Season

Conclusion

I write this series to help people understand how I consume CBD. While we see lots of information about CBD in general or what pain points to use CBD for, most people (even daily users) are still trying to figure out how much CBD to take.  

When it comes to CBD and Flu Season, I up my daily dose intake and check in with myself regularly. Stay healthy out there friends!   

If I had to pick one Kush Queen CBD product to use during this time of year, it would hands down be our Shield for Immunity CBD Bath Bomb.
