Kush Queen Review

Kush Queen 25mg bath bomb

A passion for wellness, cannabis culture, and greater inclusion in the industry is all part of the Kush Queen story.

Founder Olivia Alexander moved from Louisiana to southern California with her parents when she was a teenager. Two decades later, she’s a bona-fide cannabis influencer. 

The former child beauty pageant contestant has become a social media maven and a leader in the cannabis industry (and a vape bedazzler to boot). Alexander has a keen awareness for how to reach out to consumers who want wellness — but don’t necessarily want to get high. 

Kush Queen sees cannabis as “an opportunity not just to improve our lives, but improve the world,” and is committed to using its platform “for the highest good,” and to counter the “lack of representation in cannabis.” 

And even if the world continues to not improve, Kush Queen is well-positioned to remain an industry leader, with a wide range of CBD topicals, ingestibles, and signature CBD bath bombs.

Materials, Ingredients and Manufacturing Process

As Kush Queen puts it, the two most important things for the company are “the products and the people that use them.” This explains Kush Queen’s devotion to transparency, which guides its hemp sourcing. 

The brand partners with Oregon-based farms that do not use any genetically modified nutrients or pesticides. Kush Queen does not mention which farms it partners with. 

Once harvested, the hemp extract is taken from the biomass. Kush Queen only uses hemp extract that has been processed to the point where it is absolutely free of any residual solvents or is extracted through solvent-free methods. We asked Kush Queen about their extraction provider, and did not yet receive an answer.

At the Kush Queen facility, the company says the hemp “becomes the magical ingredient in our products,” some of which contain CBD in oil form, while others are “converted to our patent-pending water-based form.”

The brand’s website mentions that all ingredients are sourced with the same level of care as the hemp and that Olivia herself will “at any given time,” pull samples off the line and use them. It doesn’t say if she carries a bathtub with her or if one is located in the facility, but her random checkers are done because “she is always looking for the same fizz in the bath bombs.”

Packaging & Branding

A quick visit to the Kush Queen website can easily spark the sentiment “I want to join this club, and I think they might let me in too.”

Kush Queen’s vibe and image seems a far cry from the bro-heavy CBD brands (a-la “this tincture helps you WRECK SHOP in the boardroom”) or the heavy-on-the-aspirational messages CBD companies that seem convinced that their customers just CAN. NOT. DEAL. with life. 

Instead, “the Kush Queen Promise” is about inclusiveness, righting the “lack of representation in cannabis,” and building a community of people who want socially responsible products that give back to their community and have gone through third-party testing. And on the product pages, the descriptions are straightforward and not overly-informal or full of marketing jargon and the packaging is very appealing and easy on the eyes.

Mainly though, the image of the company is embodied by the Kush Queen herself: Olivia Alexander. Cool, glamorous, social media savvy, and community-oriented, it makes sense that she’d be front and center. 

Transparency and Lab Results 

Kush Queen provides copies of lab results for each of its products, and they can easily be found on the website. In an example for the Awaken 100mg bath bombs, the lab results include the amount of total CBD and/or CBG per serving, total THC (n/a), and cannabinoids. It seems as though Kush Queen’s products include boh full spectrum oil and CBD isolate, though this is not directly mentioned on the brand’s website.

The product pages on the company website are detailed and customer reviews appear below each product — be they positive or negative. 

It should be noted that, while Kush Queen’s website sings the praises of its hemp, there is very little detail about exactly where or how it is grown — rather descriptions about how it’s grown “in the beautiful Pacifica Northwest.” That will probably be enough for the average customer, but those who are more savvy about the ins and outs of hemp cultivation, it might leave something to be desired.

The Final Word

Kush Queen is a cannabis company that is making a big effort to not only leave its mark on the industry, but also to make it more inclusive, with women at the front of the boardroom, and not just in the advertisements and customer base. 

Besides bath bombs, the company features less products than many of its competitors, but it is generally forthcoming with its lab results.
