Summer is finally here, and we’re ready for some R&R at Kush Queen. Nobody deserves a break more than you, lover, even if your bank account might say the opposite.
So whether you're jetting off to a magical city abroad or spending these hot summer days at your local watering hole, Kush Queen has the perfect infused add-ons to make this hot and sticky season worthwhile. BONUS POINT: These KQ items won't break the bank either!
Handcrafted in small batches, our "Elevated" Gummies Rx options are made with a full-spectrum hemp extract and contain 10mg CBD + 10mg Delta 8 THC per gummy. They are part of our extra strength ratio series, so we recommend consuming one gummy to start, especially if you're a canna-newb.
Expect a lifted chill with a full-body buzz and one hell of a good time when ingested; just remember to stay hydrated, babes!
For an Infused After-Sun Skincare Routine
Your skin goes through a lot this season, basking in the Sun and its glory. We get it; we’re right there with you. But it's also time we start taking extra care of our body's largest organ... Skin, meet heaven.
After a long day on the sand, it's time to bring on the bubbles with Kush Queen's infused body wash! SOAKED is the world's first psychoactive body wash that delivers a potent dose of transdermal Delta 8 THC.
SOAKED features our advanced nanotechnology formula, which shrinks THC molecules to a size smaller than your pores…so you get high through your skin. But if you'd rather skip the psychoactive part, we also offer a CBD-only SOAKED experience. Either way, your skin receives a dose of anti-inflammatory properties with each fragrant scrub.
Now it's time to moisturize. After your infused shower, your skin will be ecstatic about this next step. Seriously, we're already excited for you! Once you're ready, we recommend indulging in Kush Queen's Melt CBD relief lotion. And we mean indulge.
We've combined cooling menthol, warming capsicum, and camphor oil for a cooling/warming sensation. Once applied, you should experience a tingling feeling taking over while your skin thanks you for this gift. Topped off with a complex blend of essential oils engineered explicitly for relief, Melt effectively eases muscle tension and helps reduce redness.
For Those Pre-Boarding Jitters and Post-Vacay Blues
Ok, so maybe you're not necessarily getting on a flight; either way, vacation endings are bitter-sweet. Sure, you get to see your fur baby again, but no one's ever looking forward to playing catch up with an inbox full of emails. Don't worry; Kush Queen has a solution to those post-vacay blues.
Meet Bare+, your favorite daily wellness supplement delivering smooth energy and motivation to keep you functioning when you'd rather be sipping on a margarita. Our CBD:THCv tincture is excellent for mental focus and reducing stress, and it doesn't give consumers the munchies! Yes, you read that correctly. No munchies.
Now, if you're looking for a tincture that will act as a multivitamin post-travel, you should check out our Bare+ CBDa:CBGa formula. Packed with whole-plant goodness like phytocannabinoids and terpenes, this fabulous tincture delivers high potency cannabinoids directly to your body, providing an antiviral and antimicrobial effect.
However you decide to spend your Summer, Kush Queen has top-tier cannabinoid products for elevating the season's carefree vibes. From tinctures to edibles and everything in between, we have the perfect travel companions for the modern-day stoner.
At Kush Queen, when it comes to the perception of cannabis, our POV has always been the same — it’s a plant. Oh, and that it’s a plant with numerous wellness benefits that can help people of any age treat everyday ailments like aching muscles, nervous energy, and sleep issues.
If you are reading this article, you probably fall into one of three categories: you are either Gen Z, a millennial, or a Mom who was curious enough to get the tea on what the kids are doing.
It's 2022, and parents want to know what we're thinking about cannabis and wellness. A lot of us have been using cannabis since high school, but have we all broached the subject with our Mom? Not exactly. But Mom is cool and curious, so it’s up to us to educate her and give her the power of using cannabinoids.
Let’s Break Down This Conversation Into 4 Focus Areas
Planning this conversion around wellness, science, policy, and history makes it easy to bring up, state the facts, and make it about helping them feel better. After all, that's what we want, right!?
Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Rest assured that you are coming from a place of education once you share the information in this post, and if they don’t want to see the greener side of things, then that’s ok too!
Just let them know you’ll continue to say, "you’d probably feel better with a little Mary Jane"!
Start Low and Slow, Finding Wellness In The Middle Ground
Yes, we apply the same concept of taking edibles with how to talk to parents about cannabis. Most of their understanding of cannabis breaks down into 2 categories - using “pot” to get so stoned you're out doing crazy things with some dude in a dorm room (insert devil emoji) or it pertains to medical cannabis for cancer patients.
In today’s modern cannabis market, we have the warm, welcoming middle ground of using cannabis as a daily wellness tool.
Kush Queen products use the benefits of cannabis in a way that helps people of any demographic access this plant without having to fit into either the stoner character or be in need of serious medical level attention.
Times Have Changed And Our Favorite Plant Has Real Support
The modern-day cannabis industry has come a long way from some guys making weed brownies in their apartment with no dosage guidelines or buying a dime bag with no knowledge of what you were smoking. We’ve all been there, and thankfully, we aren’t any longer!
We know legal cannabis has a ton of downsides, LIKE A TON, but a few of the good things to come from it include testing and the use of technology to understand the benefits of individual cannabinoids, strain-specific qualities, and ratio products that have come from standardization processes.
Plus, we're starting to see more research around using cannabis to treat specific issues by isolating individual cannabinoids to highlight their benefits and unique properties.
Although CBD and hemp industries are not regulated by any government body, you can find quality products from companies that focus on transparency like Kush Queen, which self-governs using the same guidelines as legal markets.
Blow Mom’s Mind, Introduce Her To THCv
Through the power of scientific research, over 140 different cannabinoids have been identified — that’s way more than just THC and CBD.
One, in particular, is THCv, an exciting minor cannabinoid that has known benefits of boosting energy levels, curbing the appetite, and increasing focus. That’s right Mom, no munchies, no spacing out! (This is the part where you give Mom a bottle of Kush Queen Bare+ THCv and CBD tincture and challenge them to a 30-day experience effects test.)
Policy and History, Where Did These Negative Opinions Form?
Why do parents generally have a negative opinion of cannabis? Reefer Madness.
"In the early 20th century, reefer madness was used to demonize the cannabis plant and its perceived users — mainly African Americans and Latin Americans. Prohibition was due in large part to institutional racism. Then in the 1960s, Nixon used prohibition to criminalize his major political enemies: African Americans and peaceniks."
The article also quotes Nixon's domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman saying "We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course, we did." The leaders of our nation, folks. Sadly, not much has changed.
To this day black individuals are 3.7 times more likely to be arrested for cannabis than white people, even though studies show equal rates of cannabis consumption between both demographics. Again, it's an evil agenda and system based on racism.
Ultimately, only you know if/when there is a right time to talk to your Mom about incorporating cannabis into her lifestyle. If you choose to swipe right on getting Mom elevated, honesty and authenticity are your best friends. Share the healing truth about this miraculous plant, and be open about your own personal relationship with it.
Sending flowers to all the canna-mommas! Happy Mother's Day <3

Living in the Pacific Northwest brings equal amounts of amazing and dreary to winter. To match my mood and immune-boosting needs of the season, I change up my daily CBD routine from October through March.
Since I work at Kush Queen, I’ve had the luxury of trying all the CBD, testing delivery methods and doses to find my perfect CBD routine. In this post, I share how I use Kush Queen products on an average winter day.
And yes, you can still be a KQ fan girl and work at the company, look at me :D
My Daily CBD Routine Starts Every Morning
Time to Nourish My ECS and Set the Vibe
I’m a bit of an early bird, so my feet hit the floor between 6:00 - 6:30 am. First up, my morning routine, which includes the usual bathroom duties and my first topical dose of CBD.
After washing and toning my face, I apply Defynt CBD Skin Serum. Defynt deeply moisturizes and calms my skin while giving the perfect daytime glow. I’m a bit of a renegade when it comes to skincare - somedays I use Defynt, and that’s all, and others, I follow my CBD skin serum with a moisturizer.
From the bathroom, I head straight to the kitchen where my wife is usually up, making our coffee. But first, a large glass of water and a dose of bäre CBD tincture.
Taking bäre consistently every morning nourishes my endocannabinoid system, which supports immune health and assists with maintaining homeostasis throughout the body. I’ve tried all bäre doses (500mg- 5000mg) and found my sweet spot with the 1000mg dose. Taking a whole dropper’s worth gives me about 33mg of CBD in the morning.
This dose of bäre has a unique ability to help me start every day in just the right way; equal parts chill and focused.
From here, I crack open my computer and start my day at Kush Queen.
The post-lunch slump is something that we can all relate to. Whether it’s low energy or motivational wane, I used to treat these feelings with coffee. Now, I grab a Gummies Rx Bliss CBG:CBD gummy or two.
These gummies are the perfect afternoon pick me up! CBG, a lesser-known minor cannabinoid, delivers an uplifting feeling while the 15mg of CBD relaxes me just enough. I pair my Gummies Rx Bliss with a walk around my neighborhood for some fresh air.
Within about 15 minutes, my gummy kicks in, and the rest of my day glides right along!
I’m a bath lover, and even before Kush Queen you could find me in the tub a few nights a week and on Saturday mornings. So, at least two nights a week I soak in a high-dose CBD Bath Bomb.
My current go-tos are Relieve 200mg CBD Bath Bomb, Sleep 200mg CBD Bath Bomb and the Holiday Edition 200mg CBD Bath Bomb. This full-body topical CBD application gives me full-body relief that eases tension and stress from the day and puts me in a state of relaxation before bed.
After my bath, I always apply Melt CBD Relief Lotion to my neck, lower back, and feet. If your work is computer-based like mine, Melt’s feature ingredients (cooling menthol, warming capsicum, and camphor oil) get to work almost instantly on my everyday aches and pains like magic.
On nights when I’m struggling to detach from the day or feel the woes from a long workout, I add Gummies Rx Sleep CBN:CBD into my routine. These gummies get to the point and put me in a dreamy state quickly.
If you have trouble relaxing before bed or getting to sleep, give Gummies Rx Sleep a try. These gummies contain CBN, a minor cannabinoid that has been compared to a sedative or sleep inducing effect.
Every day, I use Kush Queen CBD products to boost my mood, manage stress, and give me full-body relief when I need it.
I encourage you to test different products based on your daily wellness needs, try different delivery methods, and dial in what works for you to create a daily CBD routine that nourishes your body and mind.
If building a daily CBD routine is something new, check out our holiday CBD gift sets, these are perfect for finding favorites.
My two recs are the Ultimate Daily Wellness Set and the Flight of Gummies.
Before meeting Olivia, the Kush Queen, I had never used CBD and I had never really used any other cannabinoids. I was never opposed to trying CBD but you could say I was indifferent and didn’t see how it would benefit me. Olivia and I connected via the gram on 4/20 of all dates after I posted a photo of my dog in some socks with weed leaves on them. Naturally, we started talking and a few days later, the mother of all Kush Queen care packages showed up at my door.
Fast forward to now, CBD is incorporated into my daily routine and not to be dramatic but I'm a better person because of it.
5 ways Kush Queen products have transformed my self-care and overall wellness.
5) Daily CBD use has reduced my full body tension
If you would have told me 10 years ago that wearing a heavy backpack every day would cause severe neck and back pain I would’ve made different decisions. Rewind to only a year ago, I was popping more than the average amount of Ibuprofen daily and still not finding proper relief. Now I use a cocktail of Kush Queen products to naturally relieve my non-stop tension.
This combo has been more effective than NSAIDs ever were. I most frequently use MELT Relief Lotion directly on my neck and shoulders for almost instant relief and preventively, I ingest a few drops of higher-dose bare CBD Tincture in the morning and at night. At the end of an extra-long day or when I wake up with a crick in my neck, I rely on a 100 or 200mg Relieve CBD Bath Bomb.
4. A better sex life, foreal though
Coincidentally enough, I walked into a dispensary a couple of months before I met Olivia specifically looking for THC lube I had heard some women rave about on a podcast. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a cannabis-infused lube but it piqued my interest (duh) and I had to find out what the hype was about. That dispensary wound up not having it in stock and I forgot about my lube hunt until that KQ care package arrived.
Let me tell you, friends, whether you’re single and ready to mingle or in an ultra committed relationship, cannabis-infused lube does make a fiery difference during sexy time. If you’re as lucky as me you’ll experience intensified sensation and all-around more fun experience, I promise.
3. Shorter recovery from intense workouts
Between my daily dose of Kush Queen’s bare CBD tincture and the occasional Relieve bath, I’ve been able to recover from intense workouts a lot quicker than usual. With regular Crossfit style workouts, I take pre and post workout recovery pretty seriously with stretching, nutrition and now CBD. Soreness is noticeably down after incorporating daily CBD use.
2. Better sleep
Perhaps the biggest difference CBD and now CBN has made in my life is when it comes to the quality of sleep I get. For almost as long as I can remember, I’ve had issues falling asleep and staying asleep. If you’re one of those people who falls asleep within 5 minutes and wakes up refreshed as ever, I envy you!!
If you’re one of those people who can relate to my sleep struggles, I know how frustrating it can be to feel like your brain never just takes a break. I’ve never been a fan of prescription sleeping pills and even with smoking weed before bed, there was always a chance I’d wake up groggy.
That’s why my preferred medley of cannabinoids for sleep is GummiesRX Sleep CBN:CBD gummies + a few drops from my bare CBD Tincture. This combo has seriously been a game-changer for me.
3. Eased my wandering mind, which surprised me
I’ll admit that being on edge has never been at the forefront of things I felt I needed to deal with. Honestly, I accidentally stumbled upon CBD helping the nervous energy I didn’t even know I had one day.
One of the first times I used my bare tincture for a headache, I also attended a very hectic convention. I had a mini epiphany during that time and realized I felt different. I was calm and much more at peace with where I was. I wasn’t stressed like I normally might be in a loud, packed atmosphere. I continued to experiment with success in large crowds, loud venues, and in certain social situations.
Throughout the last year on my cannabinoid journey, I’ve been able to minimize the nervousness I feel by properly preparing before one of these situations that I know might trigger me.
Cannabinoids have provided me relief, remedied pain, and even enhanced my life in ways I didn’t even think about before. My eyes have been opened into this world and I hope from my experiences, you’re also inspired to try new ways to thrive.
Here are the Kush Queen CBD products I use on a daily basis:
Last Friday I stepped outside and was instantly met with the first 90 plus degree day of summer. My edges curled back, my thigh gap got sticky and for me, that can only signal one thing. The beginning of golf season! Yes, you heard that right, golf. The sport that has generally been associated with rich old white men, is the sport that this little brown girl has been playing since she was 7. Growing up in the scorching Texas heat, and then playing for four years during college in Georgia, I’ve had my share of long achy nights trying to recover from carrying golf bags for 6 hours each day. I wish I had Kush Queen back then to help me with the stress of playing golf, as well as a CBD post workout routine to help with muscle soreness recovery.
3 Steps To My CBD Post Workout Recovery
It never fails that the morning after playing a round of golf I wake up feeling sore all over. The kind of soreness that makes you question why you ever choose to move your body in the first place. My neck is tight, my shoulders burn and my head hurts so badly I feel hungover. That’s when I know it’s time for my CBD post workout routine. Now that I’m an adult I’ve incorporated a routine for getting rid of soreness. This plan also works as a killer self-care routine after a stressful day of work or play!
Step 1: Add CBD to your morning smoothie
I’m a creature of habit and that extends to my food. I have the same smoothie every morning. I know that might sound monotonous but try it out for yourself, and I think you’ll understand why I’m so crazy about it.
1 cup of frozen Blueberries
1 frozen banana
2 tbs of nut butter (I prefer Justin’s Honey Almond Butter)
Dash of Cinnamon or to taste
1 tsp honey (or you can soak dates, just make sure they’re pliable before blending)
Blend until smooth. Not only will the smoothie help to give you nutrients to feed your depleted muscles, but adding CBD will help with the aches from your workout and relieve any stress you might have so that you can start your day in a more calm state of mind. Bonus!
Step 2: Take a morning bath. I know, crazy right?
Who says baths are just for the evening? There’s nothing more luxurious to me than taking a hot bath, lighting some candles and putting on a podcast at 10 am on a Saturday. Well, that is until you add in our next step. Since my back is feeling like it’s going to start tweaking, I reach for the Kush Queen CBD bath bomb inRELIEVE. With 25mg of Pure CBD and notes of Organic clove, birch, and rosemary, this bath bomb helps me create the spa of my dreams in the reality of my apartment.
Step 3: Rub Melt on your aching muscles
After you finish soaking, treat your muscles to the cooling sensation of Kush Queen’s CBD Lotion,Melt. As soon as the Melt touches my skin I can feel my senses relaxing. Spoiler alert, after steps 1-3, my CBD post workout routine has me feeling like putty and so ready to dig into step 4.
Step 4: Stretch!
I’m a big believer in foam rolling. It hurts like hell, but once your muscles are nice and relaxed from your previous pampering, it feels like the perfect cherry on a day full of recovery. Stretching helps to keep your muscles loose and warmed up. It gives me an opportunity to breathe and clear my mind.
You don’t have to be a golfer to have a CBD post workout recovery routine. Try this out after your next crazy hard CrossFit or spin class. We ask a lot of our bodies and we need to make sure that we’re pouring love and healing back into it.

Hi, yes, I am talking about tea again, won’t you join me?
Honestly, coffee gets all the spotlight, but I am her to remind you that tea should not be overlooked. It can give you a gentle caffeine boost when needed, or it can lull you to sleep. It can be served hot, iced, dressed up like a fancy latte or turned into cookies. The herbal benefits alone should be inspiration enough to start incorporating tea into your life, and the versatility it has to offer is an added bonus.
Obviously here at Kush Queen, we like to find all the ways to add CBD to our day, so here I am. The ways in which to utilize tea, much like CBD are endless, and I found some tasty (and some unconventional) tea-inspired recipes that you should definitely add CBD to.
It is honestly as easy as adding a few droppers of Bare Daily Wellness to the recipe to achieve your desired dosage. Pay attention to serving size and then choose how many milligrams of CBD you would like per serving. Each dropper of ourOriginal Bare CBD Tinctureoffers just over 16mg’s of CBD, so you can use that to determine how many droppers you will need.
After much research, thank you Pinterest, I have found 12 unique and enticing Tea-Inspired recipes that I think you should definitely try and definitely add CBD to. I was inspired by our very ownCBD Bath Bomb Tea Collection, Obvi, so these recipes will be incorporating Matcha, Earl Grey, and Chai teas.
While green popcorn may seem a little strange, It sounds delicious! I would recommend adding yourBare Daily Wellness dropsto the Matcha topping blend. And while this recipe calls for making stovetop popcorn, which if you can, probably tastes way better, but feel free to make the Matcha topping and toss with your favorite microwave popcorn option!
The green color of these cookies in 100% natural from the Matcha powder! SO fun! These would be great for a Halloween Party, St.Pattys day, or if we are being honest, a basic Tuesday. You will want to add in yourCBD tincturewith your butter and take it easy. Adding too much oil may alter the consistency of the cookies. I would recommend starting with 2-4 droppers for the recipe to see how they turn out. OR you can replace half the butter with thisCannabutter Recipe.
The citrus addition to this Matcha smoothie makes it bright and refreshing. While fall is just around the corner, the heat is still kicking, and this is a great way to cool down while enjoying a sweet treat and getting in loads of health benefits. You will want to blend all of the ingredients according to the recipe, THEN add in 1-2 droppers ofKush Queens Bare Daily Wellnessand pulse for a few more seconds until fully incorporated. Pour it up and enjoy!
When you want all the goodness of a smoothie, but are in a spoon kind of mood, in comes the smoothie bowl. My favorite way to trick my brain into thinking I am eating ice cream. This recipe takes the goodness of Match and combines it with frozen bananas and avocado to bring you an ultra-creamy smoothie bowl experience. Top with Chia seeds for a health boost, and whatever fresh fruits, granola, and nuts you’re vibing with! You can add yourCBD oilto this recipe by blending it into the smoothie, or by adding it to Granola if that is one of your chosen toppings.
Energy balls offer a foolproof way to add protein to your diet while also satisfying your sweet tooth. You can easily adapt the ingredients to your taste preference, but this Chai tea inspired version seems pretty near perfection. Add 4-6 droppers ofBare Daily Wellness CBD oilinto this recipe with the wet ingredients and your energy balls will have 4-6mg of CBD each.
Oatmeal cookies remind me of my childhood. Each bite is packed with nostalgia. Adding in Chai Spices honestly feels like the universe merging my current self with my child self to remind me that we are the still the same person. Too deep for an oatmeal cookie recipe? I don’t think so. I recommend removing ½ tbsp of butter from this recipe and adding ½ tbsp ofKush Queens Bare Tincture.
When you need a quick and fulfilling breakfast, oatmeal has your back. Protein-packed and unbelievably adaptable. There is an oatmeal option for almost everyone! This oatmeal takes the smooth flavors of vanilla and spices it up with some Chai. It’s a comforting combination to start your day off right. I would recommend trying thisCBD Whipped Creamrecipe to top your oatmeal! You deserve a dessert for breakfast kind of day! I promise.
Pancakes are one of my ultimate comfort foods. Cake, for breakfast, duh! It always felt like I was getting away with something when I would sit down for a pancake breakfast growing up. As an adult, I have continued the tradition, proudly. These pancake stacks are a twist of the classic. Adding Chai Spices and Sweet Potato really switches up the vibe bringing you a pancake with a deeper depth of flavor. Include 2 Droppers ofBare Daily Wellnesswith the olive oil that already in this recipe. An easy peasy way to add some chill to your morning meal.
Oh Dear Lord. This cake looks ridiculous! Subtle and decadent at the same time. A perfect flavor pallet you can turn to year around. The addition of the figs really got me. I’m a fig girl for sure! While this may be a more labor-intensive recipe, it will be worth the effort. For this sweet treat, I would add 2-4 droppers ofCBD oilinto the frosting recipe with the butter.
Granola, like Earl Grey Tea, is incredibly versatile. It is simple to make, and easy to adapt to all tastes. You can then add it to parfaits, ice cream, smoothie bowls, serve it with milk, or enjoy it dry, fresh out of the oven. Those are just my personal favorite ways to enjoy granola, there are so many tasty uses for granola! Adding CBD to this recipe could not be easier! Just add 3-6 droppers ofBare Tinctureto the mixture and toss well before baking.
This is an interesting flavor combination that really works. The smooth flavors of Earl Grey balance out the tart sweetness of the Blackberries. If you can get a hold of some fresh blackberries before they go out of season, I would definitely recommend stocking up! Just like with our Matcha Smoothie, you will want to fully blend your smoothie and THEN add yourCBD oiland puls for a few more seconds until fully incorporated.
If you are looking for a splurge-worthy treat to keep you cool, look no further. Loaded with a sweet and smooth flavor, this thick and creamy recipe can easily be adapted for a dairy-free diet by replacing just a few ingredients. Just like with your smoothies, you will want to blend this recipe per the instructions, THEN add yourCBD tinctureand pulse again for a few more seconds until fully blended. You can also top with thisCBD whipped Creamfor added herbal benefits and even more decadence.
If you try any of these delicious tea-inspired recipes with our suggested CBD add-in, show us on the gram and don’t forget to credit the original recipe creator in your posts as well! The Tea-meets-CBD based possibilities are truly endless, so feel free to branch out and use some of these recipe techniques to create your own drinks and treats, packed with the herbal benefits that both tea and CBD have to offer you! And if you happen to prefer a simple cup of tea, milk & honey optional, well that’s okay too!

June is always such a wonderful month—warmer weather, summer barbecues, and celebrating Pride month. When Pride rolls around, everything seems to be covered in rainbows, and it always makes me happy to see people celebrating who they are. Plus, many companies, including Kush Queen,rainbow-fy their productsand actually donate portions of people’s purchases to LGBTQ+ organizations such asTransLifeline. It’s just such a wonderful way to spread love and joy.
Parades and celebrations often take us outdoors, and what better way to enjoy hot-weather foods and ice-cold beverages than at a barbecue with your dearest friends? I had to give up my grill when I moved from a house to an apartment, so I’ve been trying to find delicious indoor options that anyone with an oven can make. This week, I’ve settled on a recipe that’s super easy but crazy-delicious, and will hopefully remind you of all the summery, rainbow-filled joy that June brings.
CBD Butter Makes Everything Better, Trust Me On This
This week’s Rainbow Roasted Veggie recipe with garlic-herb butter usesKush Queen bäre Daily Wellness CBD oil, but you can also use thishomemade CBD cannabutterinstead. I recommend adding the oil or cannabutter to the garlic-herb portion of the recipe, which will ensure maximum potency of CBD, rather than roasting the veggies with the oil.
I chose red bell pepper, carrot, yellow crookneck squash, broccoli, and red cabbage to make my veggie rainbow, but there’s so much colorful produce to choose from! I considered adding a few more kinds of vegetables, like kabocha squash and green beans, but I ran out of space on my baking sheet. Also, make sure the veggies are chopped to be similar sizes to ensure even roasting.
Toss your veggies in a bowl with a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil. If you’re interested in a hint of barbecue grill flavor, add a few dashes of liquid smoke to your oil. I love the mesquite wood flavor, though, admittedly, liquid smoke just isn’t quite the same as a classic charcoal grill. Spread them out on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Squash and peppers will cook faster than broccoli and carrots, so check in on your oven periodically to make sure nothing’s too blackened. I, however, enjoy a little crispiness to my roasted veggies, so a few burnt edges make me happy.
How simple was that? But wait, we’re not done yet! Time for the best part:
Garlic butter! I could coat everything in garlic butter and I’d be the happiest camper. I melted 1 tbsp. unsalted butter with a spoonful of minced garlic, dried parsley, and a pinch of salt and pepper. After mixing, I added two droppers ofKush Queen CBD oil. If you prefer, you can melt CBD cannabutter into the butter mixture instead of the oil, and the flavor won’t be overwhelming when combined with the garlicky deliciousness.
This recipe makes approximately two servings, so if you’re serving a crowd, feel free to double and triple the ingredients. Make sure you spread the veggies out onto multiple baking sheets, or even roast one sheet at a time if your oven temperature is inconsistent. Piling too many vegetables on top of each other will cause uneven cooking and it’s awkward when a third of your food is burned and the other two-thirds are mushy.
Toss the veggies with the garlic butter, and you’re good to go! I’ve made this recipe three times since I initially wrote this, that’s how much I love it. Rainbows, veggies, summer vibes, and Kush Queen? Please and thank you.

Get Your Pre Summer Glo With 2 Amazing DIY CBD Tincture Face Masks
I love the summer. The heat, swimming pools are open, barbecuing yummy foods on the balcony – all of it. But my skin, on the other hand, may say otherwise. For whatever reason, the summer brings out the worst in my combination skin…and I mean the worst. My t-zone area is so greasy but at the same painfully dry – and let’s not mention the breakouts along my temples.
So being the self-titled “DIY Queen” I am, I mixed up a few masks with the help ofKush Queens Bare CBD Tincture!For the most part, these masks use ingredients that can easily be found around a kitchen and can be switched up depending on what your skin goals are!
This mask is perfect when your skin needs an extra boost of hydration. Especially if you’ve been spending a lot of time in the sun, the combo of fresh avocado + CBD will do your skin right!
Avocado is known for its healthy fats and those natural oils can deeply penetrate the skin to soften and nourish, preventing fine lines and texture. The addition of honey contributes to hydrating your skin without leaving it oily or irritated, which is ideal if you have sensitive skin. Finally, yogurt finishes this ultra-hydrating mask with its ability to plump and revitalize dull skin with it’s ingredient lactic acid. Lactic acid provides a gentle exfoliation which contributes to the glowing skin you’re about to have!
Mash the avocado as much as you can in a bowl then mix in the rest of the ingredients. Apply to your face and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Warning: Your dog may try to lick your face. If you want to up the hydration in this mask, add in an extra dropper of bare.
ACV Clay Mask with Bäre CBD Tincture
For those that don’t know the power of raw apple cider vinegar or the “Aztec Clay” mask, you’re about to learn. Raw apple cider vinegar pops in every home remedy, from loc detoxes to acne fighting. It may alsohelp unclog pores and smooth skin texture. The clay mask, which you’ve probably seen every on Instagram and Youtube at some point – lives up the hype!
I swear I’m such a skeptic about anything, but I bought a jar of it last year around the holidays and I haven’t regretted once. The clay mask will reach down into your pores and rebuke the oil and trapped dirt. It’s also a great hair mask for all hair types. Just be mindful that it does not go down your sink without a fight, a lived and re-lived learned experience. But you can throw into the grass and it will act as a natural fertilizer – it’s the circle of life baybee *Kawhi Leonard voice.*
Enough apple cider vinegar to have a spreadable paste
Combine all ingredients in a non-metal bowl and mix with a non-metal spoon.* I like the consistency of a loose toothpaste, if that makes any sense. After getting it to your desired consistency, apply – once again careful not to use metal utensils. (* Bentonite Clay literallyabsorbs impurities and heavy toxins when applied, so if exposed to metal it will absorb the impurities from that and not from you!) Leave for 10-15 minutes, and rinse off with warm water. Yes, this dries very tight. Yes, your skin may be a little red for like 20-ish minutes afterward – but these are all momentary and will only reveal bouncy and refreshed skin.
So sit back, kick your feet up and let these simple CBD face masks do the work for you! Whether you skin needs hydration or deep pore cleansing, these two masks are easy to incorporate into your weekly routine.
