What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a natural chemical compound occurring in the cannabis plant family, which includes both hemp and marijuana. CBD is one of the hundreds of cannabinoids—plant chemical compounds—that occur in the cannabis family.
Our CBD won’t get you high. The cannabidiol is derived from the hemp plant and contains less than .3% THC, which is the psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana. The extraction technique we use to get CBD from hemp completely separates CBD from the other cannabinoids. What’s left is a form of pure CBD called isolate. Our CBD pillows only include isolate in the infusion and the spritzer.
CBD and your body
According to research, CBD can cooperate with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which may help regulate physical and mental processes like stress, memory, mood, pain, appetite, and sleep. Studies suggest CBD may make your body feel like it’s producing a higher volume of your natural endocannabinoids, which could help promote a feeling of rest and relaxation.
CBD and sleep
CBD may help manage restlessness, pain, and stress—which all affect your quality of sleep. By addressing one of those root causes, CBD may improve your sleep.
Interactions between hemp-derived CBD and your endocannabinoid system (ECS) may also lead to better sleep. Research indicates sleep deprivation throws the ECS out of balance and increases specific endocannabinoids that occur in your body. Studies show the endocannabinoids that occur in CBD may balance the ones produced by your sleep-deprived ECS, which can encourage a more stable sleep environment.
CBD in numbers
According to Google, consumers looked up “CBD” or “cannabidiol” 6.4 million times in one month—the fourth highest health term searched, falling only behind “diet” and “yoga.”
Today, 14 percent of Americans say they use CBD products. Of those users, 40 percent use CBD for pain, 20 percent for anxiety, and 11 percent for sleep. As wellness trends grow, and shoppers search for whole-body healing solutions, market analysts expect CBD sales to explode.
The collective market for CBD sales in the U.S. is projected to surpass $20 billion by 2024, and the global cannabis market is expected to reach $40.6 billion by 2024. Even the European market is projected to grow 400% over the next four years.
