5 of the best CBD chocolate treats to celebrate world chocolate day

Here at The Extract, we research and cover topics related to a healthy lifestyle improved by natural products like CBD and hemp. With that in mind, plus the fact that it’s world chocolate day, we wanted to let our readers know that chocolate is, in fact, a vegetable.

Cacao beans, which grow in pod-like fruits on tropical cacao trees, are used to make chocolate. The cacao tree belongs to the Malvaceae family, which also includes okra and cotton. As a result, chocolates can almost be considered vegetables. Perhaps we’re pushing it a bit because we love chocolate in all its forms so much.

However, there are even more reasons that CBD edibles and chocolate are a marriage made in heaven. Scientists have identified a “bliss molecule,” also known as anandamide while studying cannabis receptors. Anandamide has a significant impact on a person's health, hunger, enjoyment, and motivation.

It is just as vital as dopamine and serotonin, which are well-known neurotransmitters. Cannabinoids affect your central nervous system, as well as all of your body's cells and blood cells. Anandamide also possesses analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. Receptors are engaged and anandamide levels rise when CBD chocolate is consumed.

The endocannabinoid system is also nourished by the sugar in chocolate, which amplifies the impact. This has an impact on a variety of cognitive functions, including pain suppression, sleep normalization, and mood improvement.
