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

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

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

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

Super Chill 

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

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

Newbies 

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

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

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

If you’ve never tried cannabinoids, start with:

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

Unplug In Nature

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

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

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

The perfect pairs for a day outdoors:

Kush Queen CBD and Delta 8 Gummies

Self-Care Celebration

As the self-care queens, you know some of us are spending 4/20 with a full day focused on ourselves! Join us and spend 4/20 with a full day of CBD self-care. 

Here is how we imagine the day will go:

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

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

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

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

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

Sexy Times

CBD lube is having a moment right now, and rightfully so. Known to stimulate arousal and increase the intensity and frequency of orgasms, CBD lube is becoming a bedside staple for self-exploration and deepening intimacy with partners. 

There are a number of intimate products containing CBD online and in retail stores, which makes it hard to know which one to choose. This blog will explore Kush Queen’s Ignite CBD Infused Lubricant in-depth and help you make informed decisions when stepping into the world of CBD lube.

Oil vs. Water-Based Lube

We are all unique beings with ever-changing needs and desires. The exploration of our sexuality is a personal journey that continuously evolves throughout our entire lives, regardless of age. The products and toys you use during intercourse and masturbation should be taken into account when selecting a CBD lube. 

Do you use latex condoms? What about silicone toys? If the answer to either question was yes, then choose a water-based lube like Kush Queen’s Ignite CBD lube. Oil-based intimacy products can cause silicone toys to breakdown and latex condoms to tear–increasing the risk of STIs and unwanted pregnancies. Certain oils can also throw off the vaginas pH levels and cause yeast infections.

Some oil-based intimacy products aren’t even actual lube. They’re simply infused oils, more like traditional topicals. Ignite uses ingredients commonly found in lubricants, none of which are harmful or toxic.

What’s Inside CBD Lube (really) Counts

Each ingredient in Ignite was selected with safety and effectiveness in mind. The formula is free of parabens, glycerin, and petrochemicals and doesn’t stain. Hemp-derived CBD oil is modified using Amplifi Nanotechnology, which converts the CBD molecules into nano-particles that are tiny enough to absorb into the bloodstream through the skin. 

The CBD molecules in oil-based lubricants are larger and absorb much slower, often taking effect 20 minutes or longer after application. Using nano-CBD not only allows the formula to be water-based, but it also allows the onset of Ignite’s effects to happen rapidly, in under a minute for most people.

More Pleasure

The effects of Ignite can be likened to feeling “warmed up” almost immediately after applying it to the vagina, clitoris, and/or rectum, even before foreplay or masturbation begins. Cannabis is a vasodilator, which stimulates blood flow when applied to these areas, causing a heightened sensation. The tissues in the vagina and the anal cavity are highly absorbent and highly sensitive. This increased blood flow and sensitivity makes CBD lube the perfect recipe for mind-blowing orgasms and heightened pleasure without the use of hormones. 

Aside from inducing more pleasure, CBD lube is widely used for managing discomfort experienced during intercourse. CBD has relaxing effects that help to ease tension and make sex more enjoyable. Womxn should not be inhibited from experiencing enjoyable sex and intimacy due to health conditions, further adding to the undue burden of the feminine. The Kush Queen brand has always stood for feminism and inclusive values, and Ignite is just one of the many ways the brand elevates the collective while shutting down the patriarchy. 

Take Pride in Your Pleasure

Access to medical cannabis would not have been possible had it not been for the activism of the LGBTQ+ community during the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 1990s. The cannabis industry is standing on the shoulders of those who lost their loved ones, their health, and their lives at staggering rates. 

To give back to the very community we all have to thank for their sacrifices, Kush Queen is donating 20% of sales from the 2019 Pride Collection to Trans Lifeline, a non-profit organization that provides support to transgendered individuals nationwide. 

You can take pride in supporting a fantastic cause while taking your pleasure into your own hands (or your partner’s!) when you order Ignite CBD Pride Edition while supplies last.
