About CBD.

WHAT IS A CANNABINOID?

Great question! Cannabinoids are actually chemical compounds that react with receptors that are found in the human brain. Cannabinoids can be naturally occurring or artificially manufactured. Phytocannabinoids are the type found naturally in the cannabis plant for example. One of the most well- known cannabinoid compounds is of course THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is that which is responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive properties. However, another hugely popular cannabinoid is cannabidiol (CBD). Second in concentration after THC, CBD accounts for as much as 40% of the cannabinoids found in cannabis. 
Interestingly, another cannabinoid recently discovered which is naturally occurring in the brain is anandamide. This cannabinoid is also prominent in chocolate. Not surprisingly, when activating the cannabinoid, receptor sites can be responsible for feelings of joy and pleasure.

HOW DO CANNABINOIDS REACT WITH THE BRAIN’S RECEPTORS?

neurotransmitters essentially attaching to receptor sites throughout the brain and thus activating that particular receptor. Think of these compounds as “keys” that fit snugly into the “locks” present in the brain and nervous system. Once that connection is made, you feel the results.
With anandamide, which is found in chocolate, people are apt to feel their mood enhance. With CBD the effects are usually along the lines of anxiety alleviation and can even help those who have social disorders feel more at ease.

CANNABINOID RECEPTORS

There are two primary groups of cannabinoid receptors present in the brain and in other points throughout the body: CB1 & CB2.
Anandamide tends to bind to these transmitters and ultimately in doing so, can provoke the experience of pleasure or “bliss.” It therefore becomes highly effective in helping with depression and mood disorders. It has also been known to activate a receptor call TRPV1 (TRP vanilloid 1). This particular receptor is responsible for aiding with anti-inflammatory responses.
When it comes to the benefits of CBD, researchers have found that while not as apt to make that lock and key connection with either CB1 or CB2, CBD is very much apt to bind with the TRPV1 receptors. And like the anandamide found in chocolate, promote an anti-pain, anti-inflammatory response.
This is just a brief overview of the benefits of the neurotransmitters and compounds found in chocolate and CBD. But certainly you can see how extraordinary the combination is and how valuable these are for your health and well-being.
Scientists are really only starting to scratch the surface in terms of what these miraculous compounds can actually do!

CHOCOLATE’S MANY HEALTH BENEFITS

We decided to create therapeutic chocolate in large part because of the amazing impact and effects that cocoa based products can have on the body. For instance, did you know that researchers have found that eating certain kinds of chocolate with any type of regularity, can actually add years to your life? The oldest person ever (living to 122) claimed to have eaten over 2 pounds of dark chocolate per week.
Another compound that can be found in chocolate, epicatechin, has been shown to coat and subsequently shield your brain cells. Along these same lines, scientists have discovered that dark chocolate can enhance your body’s overall blood flow. Certain properties in the chocolate help to open your capillaries, veins and arteries. This in turn, also potentially works to prevent blood clots and even a heart attack.
There are huge benefits of chocolate for the external facets of your body’s health as well as the internal ones. Internally it promotes better blood circulation, brain health and longevity.
Flavonoids, found in dark chocolate, can help prevent UV damage from the sun’s rays. The result is a healthier, improved skin tone. Chocolate is also great for the hair! Cacao — the raw form of cocoa — adds shine and aids in rebuilding damaged hair follicles.
The benefits of chocolate on its own are almost too many to list. Combine that with the power of CBD, and let’s just say our treats may very well be inducted into the hall of “superfoods.”
