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.”
