- Why You Need A CBD Pillow
There is nothing quite like the feeling of a truly restful night of sleep. You wake up feeling refreshed, energetic, and ready to tackle another day! But in reality, many people struggle to get this type of rest. If you’re desperate for better sleep, you may be wondering how to get it. The good news is, cutting-edge sleep technologies, like CBD pillows, are making it easier.
As more and more people experiment with natural ways to improve their health and wellness, CBD products are gaining popularity. In fact, one in seven people in the U.S. say they use CBD products. Of those people, 40% say they use CBD for pain relief, while 20% use it for anxiety, and 11% use it for sleep.
In this post, we’ll explore the CBD pillow benefits you should know about, while also answering frequently asked questions about this product. We'll also highlight some of the best CBD pillows on the market, which are available at Bedding Plus locations across Louisiana.
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a compound found in the hemp plant. It does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which means you will not experience any euphoric effects when using CBD products. However, CBD has been known to help those suffering from anxiety and pain.
From lotions to gummies, you’ll find CBD products everywhere these days. Early projections indicate the market for CBD sales will surpass $20 billion in the U.S. by 2024. Knowing this, it’s no surprise that the CBD pillow is quickly becoming a must-have for people who struggle with sleep.
While every CBD pillow manufacturer is unique, most of them have a cover that is infused with CBD micro-capsules and/or a pillow infused with CBD. Through friction, the CBD is slowly released into your skin and hair follicles throughout the night. This can lead to a more restful night of sleep, as we'll discuss.
Similar to salves and lotions, a CBD pillow allows you to absorb cannabidiol directly through your skin. Whether you sleep on your stomach, side, or back, your body will be able to absorb the CBD that is present.
How does a pillow compare to other forms of CBD? Oral versions, such as oil or gummies, start to wear off after a few hours. You may fall asleep easily, but that doesn’t mean you'll stay asleep throughout the night. Alternatively, a CBD pillow provides small doses of CBD over the course of the night to help you stay asleep.
It’s important to note that some people need up to two weeks to notice the benefits of using a CBD pillow. The majority of people will see a difference within one month of use.
As the popularity of CBD and all of its related products continues to grow, researchers are trying to keep up. Few clinical studies exist at this point in time. However, there is some scientific data pointing to the benefits of using CBD pillows and CBD for neuropsychiatric disorders.
In one smaller study of 72 adults with concerns of anxiety and poor sleep, anxiety scores decreased within the first month of CBD pillow use in 79.2% of the patients (and remained decreased during the study). Sleep scores improved within the first month in 66.7% of the group but did fluctuate over time.
General CBD research evidence points towards a calming effect on your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This may help regulate several physical and mental processes, including:
There is some research that CBD may assist those suffering from anxiety-related disorders, as well as epilepsy and schizophrenia.
It certainly can. For many people, CBD works to calm the nervous system, which promotes relaxation and a lesser amount of time spent falling asleep.
Studying online reviews, you’ll find that many people report feeling tired within 15-20 minutes after laying on a CBD pillow. This is an appropriate amount of time to fall asleep if you have good sleep habits and a solid bedtime routine.
What’s more, a CBD pillow can help you stay asleep without disruptions.
Due to the slow release of CBD throughout the night, you are more likely to get rest without frequently waking up. While some worry that this can lead to a groggy feeling in the morning, many reviews say otherwise. Instead, CBD pillow users report waking up feeling refreshed and well-rested.
Your usage, washing habits, and the brand of pillow you choose will determine how long your pillow lasts. On average, most people can expect to get at least six months of use with a CBD pillow cover that is used on a nightly basis. Some products, like Malouf's pillows, infuse the pillow itself with CBD for longer use and also include a CBD spritzer to heighten the effects.
Knowing this, you may choose to use your CBD pillow only occasionally, mostly when you’re having trouble sleeping. However, many people prefer to enjoy the benefits of a CBD pillow night after night.
While every manufacturer will have different recommendations for care, there are some best practices to follow. At Bedding Plus, the Malouf CBD pillows we carry should be cared for with these tips in mind:
- Wash the zippered cover in warm water using non-chlorine bleach detergent on a gentle cycle with a cold-water rinse
- Spot clean the pillow by hand using mild detergent, preferably non-alkaline without bleach
- Tumble dry the zippered cover on low heat to avoid shrinking and over-drying
- Simply rinse foam with warm water, never soak or machine wash
- Air-dry foam at room temperature, avoiding both heat and light
Due to the new and innovative technology present in CBD products, people often have a lot of questions. After all, this breakthrough in natural treatment has only been around for a few years.
At Bedding Plus, we make it our priority to share as much information with our clients as possible up front. We've compiled answers to some of the more common questions and concerns we receive about pillows with CBD. Don’t see your question here? Contact the team at Bedding Plus with any product inquiries and call your doctor with any concerns about health effects.
Are CBD products legal?
They are! Since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD products are now available nationwide if they contain less than the very small trace amount of 0.3% THC.
Are there any side effects to be aware of while using CBD products?
The majority of people will only experience the many benefits of CBD that have been discussed here. However, there are some potential side effects to be aware of. Nausea, irritability, and excessive fatigue have been reported in some cases, though there isn't causative research to point directly to the CBD pillow use.
Can I use a CBD pillow if I’m pregnant?
We always advise pregnant customers to consult with their doctor before using products infused with CBD.
Can I use a CBD pillow if I have a medical condition?
While CBD can offer many benefits, we know that the health of each individual person is unique. If you have a medical or skin condition, please speak with your doctor about the best approach.
