The Best I Ever Had: My First CBD Pedicure
By JS Brunson
You the best I ever had, best I ever had
Best I ever had, best I ever had
While the great musical poet Aubrey “Drake” Graham might have been thinking about more salacious body experiences in his 2009 hit song, these lyrics ring true about the best, and I mean the best pedicure I have ever had. Created as a collaboration with Kush Queen CBD products and executed by the fabulous technicians at Bellacures, I have been transformed from a feet loathing novice to a pedicure advocate!
But I’m getting ahead of myself here. Let me back up and give you the whole picture. I’m a little ashamed to say that I am not a girlie girl. I’ve always wanted to be the woman that got her hair done, nails done, everything did, but I wasn’t. I was more of the wait until my toes get so bad that my boyfriend puts money in my hands and begs me to get a pedicure… type girl. To be real, I just didn’t like them. Growing up we’d always go to the super sketchy salons where the turnover rate was quicker than a Lady Gaga outfit change at the Met Gala!
I am also very ticklish and I have developed a somewhat irrational fear of accidentally kicking my technician in the face. Also, I wouldn’t consider my feet to be the prettiest part of my body and adorning my toenails with polish never really made sense to me.
Luckily my guy didn’t have to wait until my annual clipping session because the Kush Queen fairy goddesses sent me on a quest to try out their CBD infused Cannicure at Bellacures. Honestly, the name alone was more than reason enough to try it out. I had the option of getting a manicure or pedicure, and well I figured I’d go ahead and test my skepticism and get the pedicure. This is the part where my life changed forever.
I got to the salon and was immediately transported to a leafy hanging plant tropical heaven. While I checked in I was handed my first of many goodies. A Kush Queen CBD infused chocolate heart candy. I popped the candy in my mouth and took a deep breath as the CBD did its magical thing. After that, I was escorted to my seat and met my technician, Tan. She raved at the popularity of the Canni-cure and told me that a lot of athletes visit her because the CBD products are good for muscle relaxation.
My next surprise came in the form of the Kush Queen Relieve CBD Bath bomb. It was added to my hot water and instantly started to turn my foot soak into an essential oil paradise! Wow, let’s just say you don’t realize how much work your feet do for you every day until you give them the tender loving care they deserve. I felt so calm and present, ready for whatever came next.
Tan began to scrub my feet using the Kush Queen Renew Sugar Scrub. Infused with the stress-reducing scent of lavender and the moisture restoring properties of shea butter, the scrub left my feet and legs so smooth.
As if it could get any better, Tan used one of my favorite products next. Kush Queen’s Melt CBD Lotion. (Pause so that I can shed a thug tear, please. Thank you.) As she was massaging my aching calves with the cooling menthol and warming capsicum and camphor oil infused Melt, I took my best “Waiting to Exhale” breath and thanked the universe for the moment I was experiencing. Yea…it was that deep.
At this point, I was completely sold on the Canni-cure.
I thanked Tan for her amazing service and tiptoed my freshly painted toes and cheery self out of Bellacures and into the world. Silly as it may sound, I felt so restored after my Canni-cure. In a society where women are expected to do everything and be every woman, it’s hard to remember that you have to carve a little happiness out for yourself. Taking the time to get over my feet phobia and be treated like the CBD princess I’ve always known I was, gave me the nudge I needed to add this into my monthly routine. I can’t speak for Drake and Adonis's mother, but Kush Queen and spa days are a match made in heaven.
