We first heard about the CBD Pillow after seeing an advert for it online. At first we weren’t sure it made sense, but after looking into it a bit more we realised what a great product it is.
While we tend to focus on CBD oils from the likes of Provacan, Holland and Barrett / Jacob Hooy and Healthspan we have decided to do a review which is slightly different.
As with all of our reviews, we’ll be taking a close look at the product as well as third-party reviews from customers to see if it is worth your time. Let’s get into the review:
How does the CBD pillow work?
The CBD pillow is a lot more than just a pillow stuffed with CBD. It works through ‘microencapsulation technology’, which allows small amounts of CBD to be released throughout the night as you sleep. Every CBD pillow has millions of microcapsules filled with an average of 170mg of CBD (we are unsure if this is isolate, broad-spectrum or full-spectrum), and each microcapsule is bonded to the outside of the fabric on the pillow. The microcapsules slowly burst when you put your head against the pillow, releasing CBD which is absorbed through the skin and the hair. We’re seeing more evidence that CBD can be effectively absorbed when applied topically (which is why we’re seeing companies like CUBID CBD and Hemptouch invest so much into their topical ranges), so this is a really innovative idea. What’s even better is that the pillow is pressure-sensitive, so the microcapsules burst periodically throughout the night as you sleep. Typically you might take a pipette of CBD oil or a drop of CBD paste before bed to get your CBD fix, but that’ll be out of your system by the time you wake up. With the CBD pillow, you’re getting microdoses of CBD as you sleep. We like it.
All of this would be pointless if the CBD pillow was an uncomfortable lump – luckily, it isn’t. The pillow is made with memory foam, and you can choose whatever firmness suits you best. The gel memory foam core keeps you cool as you sleep and there is a 10 year warranty included. All great to see!
What are the CBD pillow customer reviews like?
The CBD Pillow has been featured in a number of publications online, including many US news publications. It has clearly gone a bit viral as people love the idea. But as you know, we usually prefer to look at verified customer reviews. Luckily there is a page dedicated to customer reviews on their website, where they’re currently sitting with a 4.9 rating out of 5 stars. Overall customers seem delighted with the product and the customer service.
The CBD pillow has impressed us! We didn’t know what to expect but it looks like a lot of thought has gone into creating a genuinely good product. Check it out!
