Let’s face it, it’s a pretty stressful time. Taking some time in the evenings for self-care has never been more important. In a time filled with so much uncertainty, though, that can sometimes be difficult. If you’re struggling to find your inner peace around bedtime, you may want to consider taking a hot bath. And CBD can help.
CBD and Sleep
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a form of cannabinoid, a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, it won’t get you high, but it does have other benefits, like helping you relax and sleep.
According to clinical pharmacist Alan Carter, PharmD, CBD helps to tackle the root causes of sleep and relaxation problems, like chronic pain or anxiety, for example. The latter is on the rise at the moment; around one in five American adults suffer from anxiety.
If you’re having trouble floating off into the land of nod, a CBD bath bomb may help. The body’s largest organ, the skin, is a powerful tool for absorption. So while you unwind in the tub, your body is soaking up all that soothing CBD like a sponge.
No brand understands the power of a CBD bath bomb better than Kush Queen. There’s a reason why the California-based company’s range of 15 vegan-friendly CBD-infused bath bombs is a best-seller.
Take its Sleep Bath Bomb, for example. Available in varying CBD strengths (25mg, 100mg, or 200mg), it also includes citrus reticulata, origanum majorana, and lavender to help relax your muscles and calm your mind. The bath bomb relies on the “Entourage Effect,” which occurs when you combine cannabinoids with essential oils.
There’s also the Relieve Bath Bomb for those who suffer from chronic pain. Made with carefully selected essential oils, the product also relies on the “Entourage Effect” to help soothe sore muscles and achy bones.
“Each blend is more than a scent, it is an experience,” founder and CEO Olivia Alexander told LIVEKINDLY, regarding the Entourage Effect. “Our nourishing bath bombs combine the power of organic essential oils and cannabinoids to create effect-specific full-body experiences. This is why our bath bombs are not classified by fragrance, but by the effect.”
Changing the Image of Cannabinoids
When you think of cannabinoids, the first thing that may come to mind is probably smoking joints, not luxurious bath bombs. But Kush Queen is changing all of that.
The brand is about making CBD appeal to a different image, opening up a whole new demographic to the benefits of cannabinoids.
Alexander told the LA Times last year that she knew she was on the money when Kush Queen’s crystal vaporizer became a best-seller. “That’s when I found the Kush Queen customer,” she explained. “[She] wasn’t a stoner, didn’t smoke out of a bong, or know how to roll a joint.”
But “she” (the customer) did still care about getting all of the good stuff out of cannabis. So a beauty line was born, and a very successful one, too. The company’s Kingdm Cosmetics Foto Blur Primer won Refinery 29’s award for best primer last year; it has a “super spreadable” silky texture that helps to blur pores and provides a smooth base for makeup.
Kush Queen customers can also get their hands on CBD sugar scrubs, skin serums, body lotions, lube, and, of course, tinctures.
Available in a variety of strengths, Kush Queen’s hypoallergenic Bare CBD Tincture: Broad Spectrum is for taking on its own, or adding to smoothies, soups, sauces, or baked goods. It contains hemp CBD extract and olive oil. It’s also high in antioxidants and can help to reduce inflammation.
