Consuming cannabis is no longer limited to rolling your own pre-roll! In recent years consumers are afforded more possibilities than ever from vaping oils to topical creams and edibles. Now here is the best part…infused chocolates are gaining popularity!
Why do cannabis and chocolate go together so well? We are here to tell you why!
They have something special in common
Have you ever noticed that rush of elation that comes after eating some really, really good chocolate? There’s something special about the delectable taste and decadent texture. It’s actually a response to compounds found in the chocolate to which your brain responds in a very specific way. A way similar to how it responds to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in cannabis. A 1996 clinical study found that chocolate contains fatty acid compounds that bind directly to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and may increase the brain’s anandamide levels. Anandamide is an endocannabinoid, commonly referred to as “natural THC” or the “bliss chemical” which mimics the psychoactive effects of cannabis. Pairing the highest quality cannabis with the highest quality chocolate quite literally doubles your pleasure.
It’s a socially acceptable way to enjoy cannabis
Although we live in an enlightened age, there are some social circles in which using cannabis and even vaping aren’t good social form. Chocolates, on the other hand, are much more discreet and socially acceptable when enjoyed responsibly.
It’s also a great way to introduce friends and family to the potential medicinal benefits in a way that is much more sophisticated and far removed from the stereotypical image of cannabis use as its possible to get.
It can make for fun parties
Many are curious about the potential benefits that cannabis could have for them but may feel nervous about trying edibles on their own. The great thing about the marriage of cannabis and chocolate is that you can make it into a fun and zero pressure activity by sampling chocolate microdoses of our dreamy flavors.
