Chocolate + CBD: a winning combination to get rid of stress
Chocolate is the indulgence of many gourmets. But what about CBD chocolate? What beneficial effects does the combination of chocolate and cannabidiol provide? Stay with us to find out.
When food takes its place in the world of cannabis
The most well-known and increasingly popular French CBD products generally come in the form of oil, herbal tea, capsules. But CBD food products are also beginning to make themselves known and to cause an indisputable craze. With the design of sweets, cakes, beverages, honey, manufacturers compete in imagination to create compositions all more original and exotic than each other. Chocolate – and dark chocolate in particular – is no exception and has become one of the most popular foods in the cannabis world.
Chocolate and French CBD: a successful combination
Regular consumption of dark chocolate with 70% or more cocoa is known to tangibly improve mood and fight against stress and depression. If we add to this delicious treat the therapeutic virtues of CBD, the results in terms of health and well-being are impressive. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the most important recognized components of the cannabis plant. Like chocolate, it has the power to relieve certain ailments, without any high effects, such as sleep problems, mood instability, fatigue, inflammatory and chronic pain, stress-related disorders and anxiety.
Attributes of Chocolate + Attributes of CBD = One Wellness Formula
When you combine chocolate with non-psychotropic cannabinoids, you can’t wish for a better alliance to do yourself good, both physically and mentally. Their effects are close, mutually reinforcing, to lead the user to moments of relaxation to help prevent stress, anxiety or rumination.
Hemp seeds are packed with minerals, vitamins, plant proteins, fiber and amino acids. CBD is also rich in essential fatty acids (omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9). Chocolate, on the other hand, provides a good dose of magnesium, potassium, iron, antioxidants and, like hemp, amino acids. Once absorbed by the body, amino acids are converted into serotonin, considered the feel-good hormone. Cocoa powder further promotes the release of endorphin, a hormone that plays a role in stabilizing mood.
The strong and bitter taste of cannabidiol softened by chocolate
CBD chocolate differs significantly from regular chocolate when it comes to its taste. Since the flavor of cannabidiol is strong and bitter, it may bother some consumers. Among the other benefits of CBD chocolate, it can be argued that the chocolate lessens the strength and bitterness of cannabis while adding a pleasant flavor to it. Opting for CBD chocolate is therefore an effective way to enjoy the benefits of the product without the disadvantages.
