CBD is exploding in popularity and we are just beginning to learn about its benefits. It seems every week a new CBD oil company pops up online and so there’s no shortage of choices for oils and balms. But sometimes you want an even more passive approach to CBD. Recently I reviewed the CBD Pillow which is a pillow that has CBD infused into the cover. The CBD Blanket by Curfew is similar in that you don’t need to ingest anything, you simply put the blanket on and start reaping the benefits.
Overview of the Curfew Dream Blanket
Right now the Dream Blanket retails for $295 but you also get the Dream Salve which is 500mg of broad-spectrum CBD that normally retails for $75 on its own. For this review, I received all of these for free plus the Evening Tincture which is also 500mg of broad-spectrum CBD and also retails for $75.
Your blanket and salve will arrive in a box like this.
I was really impressed with the packaging and care they put into it. It would make a great gift for someone going through a stressful time.

How Does Curfew Dream Blanket Work?
This blanket works just like any other blanket you just put it over your body and relax! I would say that the blanket is on the thinner side and that was probably intentional because you want to be able to use the blanket even if you aren’t that cold so you can get the CBD benefits. You can always put another layer on top of it.
Here’s a picture of the blanket and products outside of the box.
The Dream Blanket works by coming into contact with your skin, so it’s best used with a short sleeve shirt to maximize contact. The blanket is infused with micro-encapsulated beads that are released with friction and then go into your skin. The Curfew website explains how it works as follows:
CBD is infused into the Dream Blanket fibers using micro-encapsulation technology. Tiny droplets of CBD are wrapped in a protective coating. This patented technology protects the CBD droplets from evaporation, oxidation and contamination.
The micro-encapsulated CBD is then bonded to yarn, which is then knit into the Dream Blanket. The friction that is created when using the blanket will break the walls of the CBD capsule where it is released onto your skin.
This blankets is supposed to last 20 wash cycles, or an estimated 2 years if you follow the wash instructions which ask you to machine wash on cold and air dry, do not place in the dryer.
My Curfew Dream Blanket Findings and Recommendation
I was pleasantly surprised to find that this blanket did not reek of CBD. I appreciate that there was no overwhelming smell and it’s nice to know that it is washable.

In conclusion, I recommend a CBD blanket for people that are averse to taking tinctures or pills and still want to experience the benefits of CBD with milder effects. If you consistently use CBD and happen to use blankets often, then this will actually end up saving you money in the long run.
