3 Reasons Hemp Hot Chocolate is Great for Sleep
Tossing and turning? You’re not alone.
According to renowned sleep scientist Dr. Carleara Weiss, over 50 million Americans struggle with some kind of sleep issue. The worst part? Many have turned to “quick fixes” like over the counter products or run-of-the-mill supplements without a deep understanding of the best way to optimize sleep.
But there’s nothing run-of-the-mill about Dream Powder, our hemp hot chocolate for better sleep. Hemp is a compound that interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system—a system that affects everything from sleep to learning to memory to mood to stress to rest. Now, hemp is taking the sleep wellness world by storm. Here are 3 reasons why hemp is your best friend at bedtime.
Think of cortisol as the stress hormone—the kind of hormone that gets released into your bloodstream when your boss asks to see you in her office. Cortisol makes it difficult to fall asleep, especially when anxiety is high and to-do lists are a mile long. Studies suggest that hemp can support the regulation of cortisol levels, making your trip to snooze town a whole lot easier.
Your Cozy Night-time Routine
Studies have shown that a consistent night-time routine can signal to your brain that bedtime is on its way, making it easier to drift off once you get there.
According to Dr. Weiss:
“A good bedtime routine allows the brain to make the transition from wakefulness to sleep so the brain can go through all the sleep cycles. If a laptop has 10 tabs open, it’s better to close all the tabs before shutting off the computer. Going to bed without a night-time routine is like closing the laptop without closing out your tabs."
Skipping the bedtime routine? A big no-no. As a supplement that supports mood, stress, rest, and wellbeing, hemp is the perfect way to kick-start your wind-down and get your body into the bedtime rhythm.

According to Dr. Weiss:
“Studies suggest that chronic sleep deprivation has long lasting effects such as diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. Other studies highlight the connection between short sleep duration (less than 6 hours/night) and a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s Disease.”
Studies suggest that hemp can increase sleep duration, so you can rack up those much-needed hours.
