People from all different walks of life praise the effects of CBD because of its reported ability to calm anxiety, soothe sore muscles, and reduce inflammation. Similar to some often used pain medications, but without the risk of addiction.
With all its versatile uses and expanding research, it’s no wonder CBD is gaining rapid popularity.
Vegan CBD chocolate, yes please!
First Off, What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD for short) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid, derived from the cannabis sativa plant; along with other cannabinoids (CBG and CBN are also becoming popular). It’s the same plant which also produces THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), most commonly associated with feeling “high” or “stoned”. However, CBD is non-psychotropic, meaning you will not experience feeling “high” or impaired.
The two compounds, THC and CBD, while resulting from the same exact plant, have widely varying effects – though using them in tandem will bring out the best of both cannabinoids. There are so many CBD products on the market now, from seltzer water to lip balm to edibles (helloooo gorgeous CBD chocolate)!
Thanks to recent research, there’s actually a substantial amount of evidence to back up the claims of CBD-lovers; like this study, this study, and this study. The FDA has even approved the use of CBD in a trial-drug, called Epidiolex (for seizures, currently in phase III trials according to the WHO).
However, even though CBD oil is wonderful, not everyone loves the taste; tolerated instead of enjoyed. CBD chocolates are the most discreet and delicious way to get your daily dose of cannabinoids, without feeling impaired by the THC found in cannabis.
“At Calivolve, we believe that life should be delicious, and that taking care of your body doesn’t mean forbidding yourself in some indulging. That’s why we’ve combined decadent chocolate with natural hemp extract.”
What Are the Benefits of Eating CBD Chocolate?
CBD Chocolate Can Provide Lasting Relief
While it does take a little longer for CBD edibles to take effect (between 20 minutes up to two hours), the results last much longer than inhalation.
Did you know that cacao and cannabis have a lot in common? They both produce a cannabinoid called anandamide – the “bliss molecule”. Similar to THC, anandamide promotes a sense of euphoria and reduced pain perception. We infuse our hemp-derived CBD chocolates with full spectrum hemp oil extract. This means you get exponentially more cannabinoids from consuming chocolate infused with cannabis.
CBD chocolate can offer prolonged relief from mild pain, stress and anxiety, due to its long-lasting nature. CBD chocolates are a great option for those looking to enjoy the benefits of cannabis, without getting high.
Eating CBD Chocolate is Safe, Vaping CBD Might Not Be
Research indicates that many CBD vaporizer pens use harmful thinning agents (like propylene glycol) that produce toxic carcinogens. While it may be possible to find a CBD vaporizer pen that doesn’t contain these agents, CBD chocolate is the best way to avoid potentially toxic compounds and get your daily dose of CBD.
Dosing with CBD Chocolate
When you’re new to the CBD-scene (or are trying to find your ideal dosage), it can be really tricky to find your sweet spot. Our vegan CBD chocolates are not only delicious and gluten-free, but also accurately dosed and scored in half. This will allow you to microdose or increase your dosage as needed.
