Zen+: Breathe enhanced relaxation with MONQ’s newest blend. A MONQ +cbd product, Zen+ launches with a new collection of CBD-infused blends.
Building upon the original, handcrafted Zen blend, Zen+ adds CBD to help you feel a deeper sense of presence and peace with this balancing blend. The Zen blend has been scientifically proven to lead to relaxation—take it to a whole new level with CBD.
Zen+ is available in the original personal aromatherapy diffuser—a portable and disposable device filled with 200+ breaths of a CBD-infused essential oil blend.
Zen+ Primary Ingredients
The new Zen+cbd blend features four main ingredients: American-grown CBD, frankincense, sweet orange, and ylang-ylang. The terpene-rich essential oils work to potentiate and optimize the CBD to create an entourage effect leading to an enhanced aromatherapeutic experience.
Anyone can add CBD. Only MONQ knows how to handcraft synergy to really help you feel the way you want. Highlighted below are the primary ingredients in Zen+ and the benefits they provide.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from hemp, a member of the cannabis family and cousin to the marijuana plant. Unlike its cousin, hemp does not contain THC, the psychoactive compound that produces an intoxicating effect, and so CBD elevates your experience, creating greater therapeutic benefits but without a high.
CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system, which has essential functions in most parts of the body, including the central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, endocrine system, immune system, and all major organs. In other words, CBD has the potential to address holistic health and affect overall wellness, including mental health.1

In Zen+, CBD gives more depth to the relaxing qualities of Zen, helping users shed their stress and enhance their meditative practice to make it a deeper, more focused experience.
Because CBD is often in an isolate, or single-molecule, form, it often lacks the terpenes inherit in cannabis and marijuana plants. However, by infusing terpene-rich aromatherapy with CBD, MONQ is potentiating the CBD while elevating the aromatherapy to create an entourage effect. This results in enhanced therapeutic benefits of both the CBD and the aromatherapy and facilitates synergy and healing.2
Frankincense Essential Oil
Frankincense is one of the most widely used essential oils during yoga and meditation sessions. In ancient rituals, individuals used it as an incense to promote health and banish negative energy. Frankincense essential oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, astringent, antiseptic, and diuretic properties.
In Zen+, frankincense helps reduce feelings of stress and helps calm the mind and body. When inhaled, it has been shown to reduce heart rate, maintain healthy blood pressure, and calm the nervous system. Frankincense also acts as an immunostimulant, boosting the function of the immune system and helping the body fight off bacteria and viruses.
Frankincense’s healing properties don’t end there. This essential oil has also been shown to alleviate aches and pains, support the respiratory system, improve sleep quality, ease digestive issues, and boost cognitive function.
One study in 2009 found that incensole acetate, derived from Boswellia resin, relieves anxiety. It achieves these effects by activating the TRPv3 channels in the brain, which play a role in regulating emotions.3 If you feel as though you need some emotional stability, frankincense can help get you there.
Sweet Orange Essential Oil
This essential oil is often referred to as simply, “orange.” But, because there are many varieties of orange essential oils, “sweet” helps distinguish it from other varieties, like bitter orange. Sweet orange essential oil has a variety of health benefits. It helps boost mood and energy and can improve skin conditions, relieve inflammation, and promote better digestion.
In Zen+, sweet orange offers the primary therapeutic benefit of boosting mood and promoting relaxation. That said, one cannot dismiss its holistic benefits and how they contribute to the effects of this calming blend. Deep meditation requires a calm mind and body.
Sweet orange essential oil contains a high limonene content, which gives it powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This essential oil also contains a complex combination of terpenes, including ɑ-pinene, citronellal, geranial, linalool, myrcene, and others, depending upon the variety.4
Ylang ylang essential oil has been used for centuries and is a popular ingredient in a variety of health and beauty products. Like the other ingredients in Zen+, ylang-ylang has a variety of therapeutic and restorative properties.
It has been known to protect against infection, speed up healing with its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, boost mood, reduce stress, and help soothe tension and relax the body into a state of rest.
It’s these last properties that make ylang-ylang particularly beneficial in Zen+. By reducing stress and boosting mood, ylang-ylang is setting the stage for synergy with the CBD and other essential oils. Furthermore, by easing tension throughout the body, ylang-ylang helps relax the body into a deeper meditative state with each breath of Zen+.5
Ylang-ylang contains several types of terpenes, including linalool, farnesol, geranial, eugenol, pinene, and beta-caryophyllene, and others, which create holistic therapeutic benefits.6
Zen+ has all the amazing healing properties of MONQ’s original Zen blend enhanced with the therapeutic benefits of CBD. Breathe in Zen+ and fall into a deep meditation.
Zen+ is one of several products featured in the MONQ +cbd collection of CBD-infused aromatherapy products. Other products launching in the MONQ + line include Peace+ original diffuser, and Roll-On blends FOCUS+, Relieve+, and Sleepy+.
