In less than three years, Olivia Alexander grew the Kush Queen brand into a multi-million dollar, multifaceted brand carrying only the finest in both CBD-only, and THC-infused products including bath bombs, pain relief lotions, edibles and more.
After gaining years of experience, Alexander sought out to create her own brand and products because she did not see herself being represented in cannabis culture. Worse, she could not find safe, affordable, conscious cannabis products, so she created them. Alexander explains, “I tried to approach it from that wellness perspective, and wanted to create products that would make cannabis more accessible and harness the true power of the plant. This brand is truly an expression of my experiences in products.”
MY BEST BUD
The co-founders of My Best Bud, known as the two Irena(s), are powerhouse serial entrepreneurs with backgrounds in aerospace engineering, law, and medical fields. They hope that the science they used to develop wellness products for pets, will one day be able to treat humans as well. And they see a lot of opportunity for women in cannabis.
