KushyCBD, the CBD arm of renowned California cannabis company KushyPunch, has been in the cannabis space since 2014. Since 2014, the company has continued adding new products to their line while perfecting their CBD processes with a focus on presenting cannabis’s medicinal properties - especially in their CBD products. KushyCBD CEO Ruben Cross told Slyng in an interview:
“That commitment to patient health and well-being is truly at the core of this company, and even as we’ve scaled and grown, seen California’s recreational market blossom and the stigma recede, we’re still completely focused on helping people find relief and happiness through cannabis.”
All KushyCBD products are made from organic, pesticide-free cannabis using a sugarcane ethanol extraction that leaves a solvent-free CBD extract that still contains the full spectrum cannabinoids, terpenes, and other essential oils which are needed for cannabis’s cohort effect to take place. The cohort effect describes how CBD is better received by the body’s endocannabinoid system when it is present with other cannabinoids and terpenes.
I’ve previously had the chance to review KushyCBD’s CBD Gummies and CBD Oil Tinctures - and was thoroughly impressed. To follow up, KushyCBD sent over their Pure CBD Oil in its two forms: The KushyCBD Disposable Vape and the KushyCBD Pure CBD Oil + Dispenser.
The KushyCBD CBD Disposable Vape comes in a compact box that really showcases the vaporizer without wasting too much space. A whole vaporizer kit box is usually inundated with extra O-rings and dab tools and charging cables but this box doesn’t need any of that because both the vaporizer portion and the battery portion are meant to be disposed of after a single-use.
Pink and white dominate the entire package and contrasts well with the few spots of bare metal, glass, and amber-colored CBD oil that also add to the color scheme. Just looking at the box is a little calming - opening the box up and hitting the vape is even more calming, though.
This “CBD Balance” disposable vaporizer features KushyPunch’s renowned pure CBD oil and is also known simply as the KushyVape. The KushyVape comes in an all-in-one kit that includes a disposable battery. The vaporizer activates when you inhale. Inhaling this disposable CBD vape reveals a smooth vapor that has the hint of the taste of cannabis without any offending smell at all. Remember: start small and wait sometime between hits.
Within minutes I started to feel the subtle effects of the CBD. The calming feeling, much akin to the effect you experience after you’ve taken a few intentional deep breaths, spread throughout my body dampening aches as it went. Soreness in my hamstrings from hiking over the weekend was stricken from my body by the vape despite not feeling any better even after remedial stretching. The full-spectrum oil helped the healing effects come through.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 5/5
Now that I had tried KushyCBD’s Pure CBD Oil in a small, disposable vaporizer, I was excited to up the dosage amount and try KushyCBD’s Pure CBD Oil + Dispenser CBD syringe. Opening the KushyCBD Pure CBD Oil + Dispenser’s box is a bit more of an involved process than opening the KushyCBD Disposable Vape’s box. You have to open the top end and then squeeze the sides while pushing up from the bottom of the box and the dispenser will slide right out in its form-fitting packaging.
Instead of a screw-in plastic dispenser plunger, KushyCBD’s dispenser comes with a metal plunger that is secured by not two but three O-rings. Using this dispenser it’s easy to create dabs in exactly the size that you want. You can also worry less about getting the dispenser to just the right temperature to get that beautiful amber sap out.
Dabbing KushyCBD’s Pure CBD Oil is a smooth treat without any harshness. The taste is pleasant and the oil vaped well in my handheld vaporizer even at 460 degrees Fahrenheit. Being able to choose your own hit size is the absolute best part of dabbing oil that comes in a reliable dispenser. Within five minutes, my racing mind had reorganized itself into a more manageable flow while the distraction of the restless leg syndrome in my still-sore legs moved to the very back of my mind. KushyCBD’s CBD oil + dispenser is a powerful concentrate that is dependable for medicinal usage.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 5/5
KushyCBD’s products continue to exceed my expectations. I’d never even seen a metal plunger in an oil dispenser before, but now I know I need it because I find it more efficient. The better quality showcases the amount of thought that went into designing these products.
In a day and age when the industry is filled with so many products that look all alike, it’s refreshing to be able to point to a consistent brand with a classy color scheme that has been around for over half a decade and has earned many accolades.
