In less than three years, Olivia 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.
Since working in her first dispensary in 2006, she has worked with countless cannabis companies in social media, creative direction ,and digital strategy. Olivia has a knack for being able to develop, connect and relate the right cannabis products to the right communities. Alexander was one of the largest digital influencers in cannabis with over 2.5 million followers and an average of 100 million monthly impressions. Kush Queen Cannabis is the offspring of The Crystal Cult and @TheKushQueens online community celebrating women who love cannabis.
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. A lot of people think topicals are snake oil or that they don’t work, but I really believe they’re one of the best delivery methods. After all, skin is the biggest organ. I really just created products for myself that made my quality of life better, and helped me cope with my bipolar disorder. This brand is truly an expression of my experiences in products.”
Olivia’s belief in, and passion for cannabis shapes her determination to normalize lifestyle and medical usage for everyone. As a voice for progressive change and female industry inclusion, Olivia was recognized as Dope Magazine’s “2017 Social Media Influencer of the Year” and was called “ The Mariah Carey of Weed” by Elle.
Olivia is a tastemaker, an advocate and a proud female contributor to the cannabis industry. Formerly a Beauty Queen who lived in Louisiana until the age of 13, she now has developed a name as the Kush Queen. You can keep up with her on the daily, here.
