The CBD Pillow uses a dispersion of microencapsulated cannabidiol. Microencapsulation is a new, innovative process in which microscopic droplets of CBD are wrapped with a protective polymeric coating. These miniature containers protect the CBD from evaporation, oxidation and contamination until their release is triggered.
Once applied to the fabric in the CBD Pillow, the microcapsules break through friction and release the CBD to be absorbed through skin and hair follicles.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive component present in the hemp plant. It is well known for its calming and relaxing properties, and is a powerful antioxidant. Our microcapsules contain pure crystalline CBD isolate (99% pure), meaning no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the constituent causing psychotropic effects) is present. Our CBD is derived from industrial hemp grown on a family farm in Colorado.
After the CBD is encapsulated, the quality, integrity, and shape of the capsules are checked via SEM (scanning Electron Microscope) analysis, while the size is evaluated using a particle size analyzer.
How is the CBD Absorbed?
It's a transdermal application of CBD. We've had extensive 3rd party testing performed using a Franz cell test on skin, which determined the CBD absorption effectiveness. Here's our results:
Does the CBD wear off if the fabric is washed?
After extensive laboratory testing, the results determined that after 20 WASHES, the CBD Pillow fabric still contained up to 14% above the guaranteed amount of CBD.
We are a new company, and we are constantly working to test, revise, adapt, and learn about the best methods for absorbing micro-doses of high quality CBD safely and easily. Check back frequently, as we're constantly receiving independent lab results, and we will be publishing our findings as we all grow & learn about this amazing new delivery method.
