Does CBD Chocolate Work?

Chocolate with CBD and THCEven though there is significant evidence from studies and anecdotal evidence that CBD oil has health advantages, some individuals in Canada have reservations about whether CBD oil works. They can even be more doubtful about CBD infused in sweets like Chocolate.

Due to its benefits, chocolate itself is considered a superfood, incredibly dark chocolate.

In our post, we would like to clear some of the doubts and provide you with information that can help you better understand how does CBD Chocolate works.

What´s a CBD Chocolate?

CBD Chocolate is a CBD oil-infused edible that can deliver the excellent anandamide and other healthy properties found naturally in chocolate and the advantages of CBD oil. Because chocolate contains good fats, digestion is faster, providing great healthy energy.

CBD is a cannabinoid found in abundance in the hemp plant and lesser amounts in marijuana plants. As shared in  CBD Health and Wellness, CBD can provide anti-inflammatory benefits, pain relief, neurological benefits, act as an antidepressant, and help with sleep disorders and anxiety.

Chocolate by itself is already a treat that many find difficult to resist, and even though it is a very demanded sweet, not many people know about the properties that it holds. Here we have listed the substances found naturally in chocolate that are also responsible for giving you that boost of energy and great mood:

  • Anandamide found in chocolate is a cannabinoid that also our body produces, and it's known as the “bliss molecule,” this cannabinoid gives this serenity and feelings of relaxation.
  • Phenylethylamine is often known as the "love molecule.” This neurotransmitter can stimulate the brain's pleasure regions.
  • Formerly known as xantheose, theobromine is considered a mild stimulant and affects humans similarly to caffeine.
  • Epicatechin is a healthy flavonol that helps with blood circulation by enhancing nitric oxide production, thus relaxing the blood vessels, and is believed to act as an anabolic (muscle-building).
  • Tryptophan is a vital amino acid that the human body cannot generate. This amino acid aids in the creation of serotonin, a mood stabilizer, as well as melatonin.

Many of these beneficial properties in chocolate are predominantly found in higher concentrations in dark chocolate, reason why it is considered a super-food. And when infused with CBD oil, the set of benefits increased.

Chocolate with CBD and THC is also a delicious infusion that many people reach for enjoyment and pain relief. Here, we give you examples so that you get the idea of the various combination you can find when it comes to CBD Chocolate :

  • CBD Vegan chocolate. The vegan community, whose belief is to respect all ways of living and eat without harming animals for food consumption, also looks to benefit from CBD oil. If you follow a vegan diet, check our vegan section, where you can find CBD vegan chocolate and delicious options free of animal-derived ingredients.
  • Organic CBD chocolate. Organic farming is considered the healthiest option for individuals looking to benefit from goods free or fewer pesticides and other chemicals usually used in agriculture. Also, organic farming helps the environment, keeping the soil healthier, so the goods produce are full of nutrients and are GMO-free.
  • Chocolate with THC and CBD (ratios). The CBD to THC ratio shows how much CBD is in a dose relative to how much THC is in it. A 1:1 ratio, for example, means that each dosage has an equal amount of CBD and THC. A CBD:THC ratio of 4:1 would mean four times the amount of CBD in a dose compared to THC. Individuals looking for a more targeted relief will prefer ratios of these well-known cannabinoids and their effects.

How Does CBD Chocolate Work in Your Body?

CBD is a cannabinoid that occurs naturally and significantly in the hemp plant. There are around 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, but only a few have been studied.

Your body also produces cannabinoids called endocannabinoids due to the interaction and the critical role in your endocannabinoid system ( ECS).

The ECS was discovered in the 1990s and was found to be present in the human body and made up of specific receptors, endocannabinoids, and enzymes that break them down.

The ECS regulates various functions, including energy generation, organ function, metabolism, and circulation, and appears to have an essential role in a wide range of physiological actions, including memory, mood, inflammation, sleep, anxiety, stress levels, hunger, and digestion. In simple words, the ECS is the system that helps your body maintain its homeostasis.

CBD chocolate travels via the digestive tract and the liver before entering the circulation to reach the ECS. Chocolate's inherent lipids, according to research, can help preserve CBD molecules throughout digestion and boost the bioavailability of both.

According to research, CBD can aid in the relief of pain caused by inflammation and migraines. CBD oil aids in the regulation of the breakdown of anandamide and 2-AG. This second plays a crucial function as the principal ligand (binding molecule) for the CB2 receptor. These receptors are found all across the immune system and they largely regulate inflammation.

There are also two other substances in chocolate that boost the effects of anandamide. Chocolate according to research contains two compounds (N-oleoyl ethanolamine and N-linoleoyl ethanolamine) that inhibit the break down of anandamide and prolong its effect.

Clearly, CBD chocolate has the potential to give significant health advantages. It is critical to recognize that not everyone's demands are the same; they might be very different, and what works for others may not work for you. We certainly encourage you to conduct your research and visit your doctor for further information regarding CBD and your health.

Types of CBD Oil Infused in Chocolate

There is a wide variety of CBD oil products on the market, that can be purchased to target different types of illnesses, you can find them in different methods and used some as dietary supplements, also you can find CBD from hemp-derived or marijuana-derived, along with ratios of CBD and THC.

When looking to buy CBD chocolate, it is essential to pay attention to the type of CBD oil found in the product; Isolate, Broad, or Full Spectrum.

An Isolate CBD means that only CBD (up to 99%)  and no traces of THC are found, thus allowing you to benefit from CBD solely.

Other natural hemp derivatives (fats, vitamins, minerals, and cannabinoids) are removed during the production process of CBD isolate oils.

The goal of a CBD Isolate product is to reach maximum CBD concentrations, by removing any other natural components found in the plant. A CBD isolate is normally recommended for those who are attempting to overcome an addiction or who are unlikely to take THC.

With a Full-spectrum CBD oil instead of removing the natural components during the production of CBD oil, all the cannabinoids including THC, terpenes, flavonoids, and even vitamins and minerals are preserved.

A key benefit of a full spectrum CBD oil is the medicinal properties all the components can provide, making them more efficient when working together, this is known as the “entourage effect”.

A Broad-spectrum CBD oil is said to be a full spectrum but does not contain THC, it will have the other cannabinoids, terpenes, and phytochemicals. Nowadays a broad spectrum is considered the healthiest type when compared to an isolate CBD oil.

All these three types of CBD oil extractions are derived from the hemp plant, known to have higher concentrations of CBD.

Now any various cannabis plant extracts can also be infused with chocolate. This extraction will have a higher THC content and a lower CBD concentration.

Examples of strains extractions that can also be infused in chocolate are:

  • Sativa strains are mainly used to help with low-energy levels.
  • Indica cannabis strains have become increasingly popular due to the relief of chronic pain while providing sedative effects.
  • Hybrid: This is a balance of Indica and Sativa effects.

Endnotes

Based on research and anecdotal evidence, we conclude that CBD chocolate has the potential to be extremely beneficial to one's health.

A factor that should also be considered when thinking to buy CBD chocolate, is potency. In the case of chocolate bars, they are divided into tiny blocks, with each block having a measured concentration. This makes it simple to keep track of the effects and health objectives.

Also, there is a variety of Chocolate infused with THC and CBD, the variety is great that you can even buy a THC chocolate cake. In any case, remember to begin "low and slow," wait 2 hours to see the results of each bite, and if necessary, try another piece and wait for the effects desired.

And please keep your CBD Chocolate or THC chocolate candy, or whatever sort of cannabinoid-infused chocolate you like to relieve your symptoms with, out of reach of children or any other adult. The appearance of chocolate makes it highly appealing to eat.
