Sleep heals the brain and body. It’s a reset button for the stress of the day. So why is sleeping well so hard when we need it most? Whether you sleep like a baby or don’t sleep a wink, it’s worth taking a look at how you spend a third of your life.
“With a unique combination of botanical remedies, BLOOM FARMS Dream tincture may help you maintain a healthy sleep.”

How Sleep Can Provide Energy
You probably fall into one of these camps: wanting to know how to get LESS sleep and MORE energy or how to get BETTER sleep and MORE energy. Bad sleep and low energy are undeniably linked. So which is the better tactic—more hours of “okay” sleep or fewer hours of great sleep? While more sleep time is ideal, what makes it re-energizing is how restful sleep is. And what is considered restful sleep?
Sleep and Immunity Research
No one wants to get sick. Believe it or not, one of the greatest health benefits of a good night’s sleep has to do with the connection between sleep and immune system response. Research has shown that being well-rested dramatically decreases the chance of picking up illnesses like the common cold! (There’s a reason why you’re feeling more tired than usual when you’re getting sick: Sleep increases immunity, so your body encourages more of it.)
Proper sleep hygiene can go a long way toward improving your rest and reaping the benefits of good sleep. But sometimes it’s not enough. CBN may help.
“I've been having sleep issues on and off for the past few months. I've dabbled with taking melatonin and other sleep aids—which have helped in ways—but have yet to find a real solution that I trust on a consistent or as-needed basis... until now. DREAM has been nothing short of amazing, truly living up to its name.” —Max Karp
Sleep and Weight Management
Could sleep be affecting your waistline? The relationship between sleep and weight management is only just becoming more fully understood, with research showing that people are not as satisfied with food when they’re sleep-deprived and eat more when tired. One sleep and weight loss study by the University of Chicago showed that, on average, they will consume as much as 1,000 extra calories per day!
Sleep and Cognitive Performance
The association of poor sleep and cognitive impairment has been well-studied. There are immediate, short-term and long-term cognitive benefits of good sleep. Immediately, bad sleep can mean decreased concentration, slow reaction time and less control of motor actions. Long-term consequences further emphasize why good quality sleep is important: Studies suggest that it correlates with a reduced risk or delayed onset of Alzheimer’s.
How Does Sleep Heal You?
Everyday, new scientific discoveries unravel more about why sleep heals the body. And it’s not just your body that benefits—sleep heals the brain, too. (Have you ever crashed out on the sofa after a really stressful day? There’s a reason.) Some of the key wayssleep helps the body include lowering blood pressure and signaling the release of hormones that slow breathing and relax muscles.
How Sleep Improves Your Mood
There are five stages of sleep, including REM. Short for “rapid eye movement,” REM may be cycled in and out of several times during a sleep session. Most dreaming happens during REM sleep. When REM sleep is experienced regularly over time, it allows us to make more intelligent decisions and take smarter actions. Emotional IQ and resilience depends on getting enough REM sleep night after night.
