More About KushyCBD
Since 2014, the Kushy name has been a leader in the cannabis industry. KushyCBD is the CBD department of KushyPunch, an OG in the California cannabis industry. KushyCBD’s founders have been coming up with cannabis products to provide to the mass market for six years now. They’ve perfected CBD extraction processes for use in KushyCBD products in a sustainable and user-friendly way.
KushyCBD products are made from premium cannabis that is organic and pesticide-free. They use a sugarcane ethanol extraction which results in a powerful broad-spectrum extract that still contains other cannabinoids besides CBD, terpenes, and other essential oils from the cannabis flower. All of these different parts from the cannabis plant are necessary for the entourage effect to take place.
Cannabis products are used by millions for many different beneficial reasons, and KushyCBD understands and supports that. KushyCBD CEO Ruben Cross explained their commitment to the cannabis user to Slyng in an interview last year:
“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.”
I’ve previously had the chance to review KushyCBD’s CBD Gummies and CBD Oil Tinctures as well as their CBD Disposable Vape and Pure CBD Oil + Dispenser. KushyCBD has now sent over their Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture with 1000mg CBD and CBD Body Balm with 500mg CBD for review – and I’m eager to give them a try.
KushyCBD CBD Oil Tincture Review
The KushyCBD Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture comes in a black and pink box that features both the KushyCBD logo and also a new design which they use to denote their Pure CBD tincture products. Pure CBD is a constituent part of the broad spectrum hemp oil which mixed with the medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oil allows the KushyCBD oil tincture to absorb into the body and affect the endocannabinoid system.
The glass vial comes with a dropper that has the mL markings that are now standard in the industry. I shook the vial vigorously and then measured out 0.50 mL in the dropper which I then dropped under my tongue. I ended up holding it there for a full minute instead of the recommended thirty seconds while savoring the minty and slightly sweet taste. The taste is sweetened ever so slightly by stevia and the mint flavoring tastes deliciously natural – which is no surprise as it is provided by mentha piperita (peppermint).
It isn’t offensive to the mouth the way that mouthwash or toothpaste is, and I could hold it in my mouth for longer than a minute easily if needed. That means you can add the CBD oil tincture to anything you’re eating or drinking without worrying about it overpowering the existing taste – it’ll only compliment it. Since KushyCBD’s oil tincture is certified THC free, it can even be used in a detox drink during crunch time if needed!
Within an hour of applying the CBD oil sublingually, I was able to sit up straighter and with less pain than normal. It’s that subtle, natural difference in my body’s inflammation levels that let me feel and act as if I’m younger and full of fewer aches and pains that I always look for in CBD oil tinctures. I’ve noticed that the feeling is more pronounced when a full or broad-spectrum oil is used, and KushyCBD hits the spot to activate the entourage effect with their blend.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 4.9/5
KushyCBD CBD Body Balm Review
Like their CBD oil, the KushyCBD CBD Body Balm comes in a black and pink box – though this one is much heavier and shorter. The CBD body balm comes in a solid glass jar with a lid that isn’t too hard to open but seals smell-tight shut every time. Opening that lid unveils the delicious, rustic lavender essence which has been baked into the CBD body balm.
A plain old balm with this scent would be therapeutic enough, but there’s actually 500mg of pure CBD inside the jar, too. The herbal blend is made of shea butter, beeswax, jojoba oil, and sunflower oil, which gives the CBD body balm a solid consistency at room temperature that immediately starts to melt into your skin once applied. When it comes to aches and pains, this CBD body balm really has your back – or any other part of your body that needs it.
I took out a dollop of KushyCBD body balm and rubbed it between my hands until it was a more malleable consistency, then I started applying it in trouble spots on my body. I had just returned from a five-mile walk in which I spent the last two miles thinking specifically about where I would use the body balm. This CBD body balm was exactly what I needed for my shoulders, calves, and lower back. It was even great at reducing inflammation and therefore itching, on some bug bites that I had accumulated.
KushyCBD’s products. Everything in combination, the smell, the feel, and the long-lasting effect are truly bliss evoking. Here’s a pro-tip, when you’re done using the KushyCBD body balm, take a little bit of the balm left on your hands and use it on your face. Associating the soothing, light lavender smell with the healing effects of the balm will help the calming effect really seep into your mind and body.
- Effectiveness: 5/5
- Ease of use: 5/5
- Overall score: 5/5
These two KushyCBD products take tried and true mediums of application from the past such as tinctures and balms and take them to the next level with their broad-spectrum hemp extract. The KushyCBD Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture has a delicious peppermint taste and is great sublingually or on food/drinks.
The KushyCBD Body Balm is useful for targeted aches and pains and can be used topically anywhere on your body.
