Ever felt a little guilty about indulging in dark chocolate? No need to do that any longer, there’s plenty of evidence to support its nutritional value.
What about if it contains a touch of CBD? The same thing is true with proven benefits. CBD (cannabidiol) is non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecule found in cannabis.
For some time, dark chocolate has been promoted as one of the best sources of antioxidant on the planet. It’s loaded with nutrients that can positively affect your health. Plus, it’s all natural because it is made from the seed of the cocoa tree.
Studies show that dark chocolate has the potential to improve your health, brain function, and lower your risk of heart disease along with blood pressure. In a controlled study, cocoa powder was found to significantly decrease oxidized LDL cholesterol in men. It also increased HDL and lowered total LDL for those with high cholesterol.
It’s just simply good for you, and now it’s being combined with CBD, which has health benefits on its own, especially for those, who struggle with anxiety and joint inflammation. CBD has analgesic (pain-reliever), anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties without producing the “high” feeling you get from THC. It is safe and 100% legal and most of all it can work.
Therapeutic Chocolate and treats are quickly becoming noticed by the medical community. CBD is different than THC, which creates a mind-altering “high” when a person smokes it or uses it in cooking. This is because THC breaks down when we apply heat.
Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that CBD does not change a person’s state of mind when they use it. What CBD does do is produce significant changes in the body that are helpful, and as some research suggests “has medical benefits.”
Where does CBD come from? From Hemp, which is the least processed form of the cannabis plant. Hemp contains most of the CBD that people use medicinally. Though hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, Cannabis sativa, the two are very different.
All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CBD seems to direct the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.
Why and who should consider using Therapeutic chocolate? In large part therapeutic chocolate has an amazing impact and effects on the body. Neurotransmitters attach to receptor sites throughout the brain and activate particular receptors. 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.
Therapeutic chocolate also offers natural pain relief and contains anti-inflammatory properties. It is a natural way to tackle pain without a prescription. Some early studies also indicate that CBD may prove to combat cancer.
Research continues but the upfront evidence is clear and dark chocolate combined with CBD can and does prove amazing results and relief for those who battle with the aftermath of traumatic illnesses and emotional stress.
