This CBD Brand’s Cotton Candy Inspired Whipped Body Butter Is Back In Stock – And Worth The Hype

You’ll be swooning over the CBD infused, dessert-like offerings from Sugar & Kush.


 

Think about your recent personal care purchases. What was the last thing you bought that inspired delight and gave you a delicious experience? Most of the time, we reserve that term for food, particularly dessert, but the founders of Sugar & Kush have managed to create products that live up to that claim while infusing them with all the benefits that come with CBD.

 

Sugar & Kush
Prepare yourself. If your skin could talk, you’d probably hear it saying “mmmmm, more please.”

 

Treat Your Body Better Naturally

 

If you don’t already have a sweet tooth, a quick glance at the Sugar & Kush website will certainly give you one. Their CBD gummies and oil tinctures offer flavors that span the gamut of sugary delights, including vanilla and strawberry as well as bubble gum, cotton candy, hazelnut, orange creamsicle, and even pumpkin spice. But there’s more to this brand than just sweetness. 

 

Laura Brenner, the Founder and Product Oversight Manager is a cancer survivor turned holistic, vegan, CBD advocate. In 2013, she was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer. After undergoing surgery, she went into remission but wanted a natural way to help her body heal that wouldn’t involve the side effects associated with radiation and chemotherapy. Enter CBD. With the knowledge Brenner gained and the support and dedication of her best friend, Danielle Papajan, Sugar & Kush was born. 

 

Transparency and Compliance

 

Buying CBD products shouldn’t involve guesswork, but it isn’t always easy to know whose language to trust. The hemp used in every Sugar & Kush product is all-natural, organic, and “grown under the strict regulations of the US Department of Agriculture.” In layman’s terms, companies must adhere to guidelines enacted in accordance with the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the Farm Bill) that apply to everything from how the plant is grown to how frequently samples must be submitted to verify THC concentrations. At Sugar & Kush, products are analyzed by a third party to determine “potency, purity, and consistency,” so consumers can trust their claims. The Certificates of Analysis are also prominently displayed on the Sugar & Kush website, and consumers should always look for these before making a CBD purchase online. 

 

Better Than a Bakery for Your Body

 

Are you instinctively drawn to the pink and white cookies in the bakery? What about the cotton candy booth at the county fair? If so, Sugar & Kush was made with you in mind. Each product package depicts images that conjure up those feel good qualities we all associate with soft-serve ice cream or sprinkle-topped cupcakes. But scientists have long proven that sugar should be enjoyed only in moderation because “consuming too much sugar can raise blood pressure and increase chronic inflammation.” Armed with this knowledge, Brenner and Papajan set out “to design a delicious product line while maintaining a healthy balance. Thankfully, they created “pure, premium CBD products at a reasonable price” that can be enjoyed without jeopardizing your health or your waistline.

Your Skin Deserves Better Body Butter

 

If you’re thinking of trying a topical CBD product, the Whipped Body Butter makes a great starting point. It combines 200 mg of THC-free Broad Spectrum CBD with cannabigerol (CBG), jojoba oil, shea butter, and coconut-derived MCT. Jojoba seed oil makes skin feel soft and supple, and research shows that it also calms inflammation and contributes to wound healing and skin recovery. Pomegranate seed oil gives the butter its rich texture, thanks to its free fatty acid content, and its antioxidant polyphenols provide micronutrients to the skin, which encourages collagen synthesis.

 

One whiff and one application was all it took to hook me. It has a cotton candy color and a sweet-tart scent that make it utterly addictive and a perfect choice for locking in moisture after a shower or bath. The fluffy-looking appearance intrigued me, too, because the cream looks aerated in the jar, yet it transforms on contact into a rich oil as it melts into the skin. Prepare yourself. If your skin could talk, you’d probably hear it saying “mmmmm, more please.”

I just love the HanBee products. They made my hands feel soft and not dry at all. The face products Vitabrid C12 were fabulous.

Okay, you had me at collagen! What's not to love about this body butter!? This is definitely on my must have list and I'm now bummed I missed this review round! Her motivation to develop this brand is inspirational as I also was diagnosed with ovarian cancer many years ago. I can't wait to try it!

I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to try out a this yummy body product. The fact that it will be fun to use and also benefits my skin is a WIN-WIN. Sounds like Sugar Kush knocked this one out of the park. 🍭

This is, quite possibly, the richest body butter I've ever used ... and my skin loves it. A little goes a really long way, so start off by using less than you think you'll need. The jar is HUGE!
