Looking for new ways to relax? Using cannabidiol (CBD) is one way to unwind at the end of the day. And these vegan, cruelty-free CBD wellness products can help.
CBD is a cannabinoid sourced from the cannabis sativa plant. Cannabinoids are the active compounds found in cannabis. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD doesn’t get you high. But it can still help achieve your relaxation goals and so much more.
According to registered dietician Jillian Kubala, MS, RD, CBD has been linked with pain relief and reducing anxiety and depression, among other benefits. It may also help with sleep, as well as relaxation.
Founded in 2015 by Olivia Alexander, California-based Kush Queen is all about promoting the benefits of CBD, which it sources from the hemp plant.
Hemp is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant. It has low THC content. The U.S. defines industrial hemp as a cannabis sativa plant that produces 0.3 percent THC or less.
Kush Queen makes CBD products for everyone, from ingestible tinctures, to bath bombs and skin scrubs to personal lube. Here are eight of its vegan, cruelty-free products to get you through what, thanks to lockdown, may just feel like the longest summer of your life.
8 Vegan Cruelty-Free CBD Products to Get You Through a Summer in Lockdown
1. CBD Bath Bombs
Kush Queen offers 15 CBD bath bombs in a variety of scents and effects. The brand uses different essential oils, which combine with CBD to create immersive, full-body experiences. Alexander says, “this is why our bath bombs are not classified by fragrance, but by effect.”
Each bath bomb serves a unique purpose. As the name suggests, the Relax bath bomb was created to relax the body and the mind. The Shield for Immunity bath bomb contains 100mg of CBD, and is designed to boost the immune system. It contains a “powerful and aromatic mixture” of clove, cinnamon, and rosemary, as well as other natural botanicals.

2. Water-Based CBD Lube
Kush Queen also offers water-based CBD Lube, which it says increases blood flow and circulation, stimulates arousal, and heightens sensitivity during intercourse.
The product—which is for all genders and can be applied anywhere on the body—is infused with Kush Queen’s own Amplifi Nanotechnology. This means that the CBD particles are so small they absorb through the skin and into the blood.

3. Melt CBD Lotion
Melt CBD Lotion, which features Amplifi and aloe leaf juice, is designed for pain, tension, or irritation relief. Simply apply a dime-sized amount onto the area of the body where you require some relief, sit back and enjoy the cooling, relaxing sensation.

6. Soaked CBD Shower Gel
More of a shower person than a bath person? Kush Queen has something for you too. Its Soaked CBD Shower Gel, which also features Amplifi, smells delicious—thanks to hints of citrus fruits, like pink grapefruit and lime—and will leave you feeling delicious, too. Use it every morning and start your day feeling fresh and, most importantly, ultra-clean.

7. Bare CBD Tincture
If you prefer ingestibles over topicals, Kush Queen also offers its Bare CBD Tincture. Choose any dosage you like, from 500mg through to 5,000mg, it’s up to you.
Topicals, like Kush Queen’s Melt Lotion, for example, may help with localized pain. You can massage it directly into the part of your body that is causing you discomfort. Ingestibles, like this Bare CBD, may help with conditions like anxiety or sleep problems
Herbal medicine expert Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., told Elle, “tinctures are convenient, have a long shelf life, and are absorbed easily when taken under the tongue. The dose can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the number of drops taken.”

8. KINGDM Cosmetics Foto Blur Primer
Kush Queen is planning on launching a range of cosmetics, and already offers a primer, which is suitable for all skin tones and textures.
Infused with CBD, the KINGDM Foto Blur primer also uses Amplifi. Why would you want CBD in your makeup? According to Kush Queen, it will help to reduce redness and may even prevent breakouts. It’ll leave your skin feeling super soft, moisturized, and never dry.
