While its deliciousness is hard to deny, the main reason we use raw chocolate as a delivery medium for our CBD actually goes a little deeper than pure pleasure. Cacao, the base ingredient for all dark chocolate, is one of the most chemically complex foods on earth. In ancient Aztec and Mayan history, cacao was used as a sacred food, and as the base for medicinal beverages used in ceremony. The theobromine and caffeine content in cacao are vasodilators – meaning they increase circulation. This effect can also increase the body’s ability to absorb and utilize medicinal ingredients such as herbs and extracts, making raw chocolate the perfect medium for something like CBD. Cacao also happens to be rich with powerful antioxidants known as flavonols, minerals such as magnesium, iron, and zinc, as well as endorphin-boosting compounds like PEA and anandamide – both of which have an uplifting effect on the mood.
Our raw chocolate is handcrafted in small batches using a low temperature, nib-to-bar stone grinding process. This ensures that all of the medicinal properties of the cacao itself remain intact, while producing an incredible smoothness of texture and delicious dark chocolate flavor with all of the subtle nuances of the actual cacao bean. We use just the right ratio of cacao nibs, cacao butter, and pure coconut blossom sugar – a lower glycemic and more nutrient-rich alternative to cane sugar. Combining such a high quality CBD extract with this caliber of raw chocolate has never been done before – it’s a true match made in superfood heaven.
