We’ve all been there –– 11am downing your third cup of coffee, praying that it will kick in enough to get some work done. I didn’t realize how problematic sleeping pattern was until I started wearing an Apple Watch, and let me tell you, it was NOT good. A friend mentioned how well she sleeps since she began drinking a “CBD-based hot chocolate” called Dream Powder that she had seen on girl boss idol Danica Patrick’s IG. Naturally, I had to check it out for myself!
Apparently, CBD (cannabidiol) helps regulate pain, mood, anxiety, and inflammation, all of which can contribute to better sleep quality. Sure, the idea of a healthy take on hot chocolate that helps me sleep sounds great, but I’m also a skeptic. There are hundreds of CBD companies out there, so you’d best believe I began researching Beam’s Dream Powder.
From my research, I learned Beam uses proprietary nano-CBD technology to ensure that theirs has high absorption potential. They also use broad-spectrum CBD, which means that it contains a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds (but no THC). Basically, it’s legit! They have products for performance, sleep, balance, and recovery, but I started with their bestselling Dream Powder.
TLDR this Dream Powder has me sleeping like a baby.
Here’s why I’m hooked:
1. It Tastes Like a Decadent Dessert
Admittedly, I’ve got a massive sweet tooth once 10pm rolls around. Instead of tucking into that pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, I make myself a “dreamy hot chocolate” by blending a scoop of Dream Powder with about 8 ounces of steamed oat milk. The rich cocoa has a hint of cinnamon, so it smells divine and tastes a bit naughty. 🤤
2. It’s The New Start To My Bedtime Routine
I’ve proudly kicked my habit of scrolling Tik Tok until the wee hours of the morning and prioritized my nightly hot chocolate as I get ready for bed. Taking a moment to savor the taste calms my overactive brain as I lightly stretch before crawling under the covers. Then within 30 minutes, I’m out like a light.
3. Now I Fall Asleep and Stay Asleep
Beam has become as essential to my sleep as my pillows. On nights that I take Dream Powder, I pass out HARD. Like, you could send a Mardi Gras parade through my room and I’d still be knocked out cold. Typically, I’d find myself waking up during the night, but now I sleep all the way through. The best part –– I wake up the next morning feeling like a trillion bucks, and without that weird “I took a sleeping supplement hangover” feeling.
4. Pro Athletes Use It To Aid Recovery
It’s no shock that Beam’s Dream Powder was developed by pro athletes. Every time I use it, I wake up with my muscles feeling refreshed and as ready as they can be to crush my 6:30 a.m. Soul Cycle class.
I wear an Apple Watch to track my sleep and recovery, and my scores increase on nights I drink my Dream Powder and get a solid night’s rest.
5. Great Sleep = Mood And Productivity Boost
The best thing about Dream Powder and (actually) sleeping great, is how fresh I feel in the morning. A great night of sleep has me ready to turn my mental switch “on” by sunrise. Coworkers even mention that I seem particularly caffeinated on morning Zoom calls, but truthfully, my coffee consumption is down!
In short, if you’re looking for better sleep, better recovery, a better state of mind, or all of the above, there’s nothing I’d recommend more than Beam’s Dream Powder.
