A good night’s sleep is a priority for everyone – or it should be. Sleeping well goes a long way towards overall health and vitality, and it even helps you maintain a healthy body weight. Sleep masks are nothing new, people have been using them to darken their sleep environment for generations. A CBD sleep mask, on the other hand, is a new and exciting product.
A CBD sleep mask is also known as a CBD face mask or a CBD sheet mask. Call it what you like, but many will be asking what’s CBD and what makes this sleep mask different from any other?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the cannabinoids (active ingredients) in cannabis. As more states move towards legalizing medical marijuana, using cannabis for therapeutic aims is both increasingly legal and acceptable. But its worth noting that CBD is not the cannabinoid that promotes the mind-altering effects that marijuana is known for.
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the cannabinoid responsible for getting you high, while CBD will do nothing of the sort. But what CBD can do is provide a whole host of therapeutic health benefits, and the ones that you can get with a CBD sleep mask are related to CBD’s powerful natural anti-inflammatory properties.
CBD Sleep Mask Benefits
A CBD sleep mask can help to reduce:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
As well as promoting softer, more supple skin that has an increasingly youthful appearance. CBD may even help minimize the pain of a sunburn or other injury to your facial skin.
It’s also been reported that these sleep masks can also work to reduce the severity of sleep apnea symptoms, and we’ve heard of instances where people who already use a C-Pap machine now also sleep with one of the masks on.
Many of these masks will also have other therapeutic ingredients that promote other unrelated health benefits. These include:
- Aloe Vera Juice
- Cassia Seed
- Pro-Vitamin B5
- Assorted Amino Acids
Among others. Cell regeneration in the immediate area is more pronounced in the skin around the eyes with a CBD sleep mask than other spots on the body when given the same dosage of the cannabinoid. This may be another reason why they’re as popular as they are.
So call it a CBD face mask, or CBD sheet mask, or whatever you like. They’re going to be a popular beauty product alternative in the future.
