CBD and Dark Chocolate: Indulging in Sweet Relaxation With CBDistillery®
The precious moments you set aside to decompress, relax, and unwind, can help calm your mind, improve your outlook, and regain perspective. Are you giving stress-relief and relaxation the priority it deserves? If not, consider investing in the calming, relaxing potential of hemp-derived CBD.
Based on the feedback of 2000 survey respondents, most CBD users prefer hemp-derived CBD over yoga, meditation, and wine for relaxation. How do we respond to such favorable input from our valued customers? We take their suggestions to heart.
Our customers spoke, and we listened. Whether you’re a first time CBD user or a devoted CBD enthusiast, you’re sure to love the newest addition to our product line, a rich, premium CBD-infused dark chocolate bar. Have we got your attention? Good.
A Winning Combination for Chocolate Lovers Everywhere!
At CBDistillery®, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality hemp-derived CBD products. When our customers asked for CBD chocolate, we knew we needed a smooth, decadent blend, a flavor profile to complement our full-spectrum hemp extracts. Anything less would never do.
If you love chocolate, a CBDistillery® CBD Dark Chocolate Bar could be one of the best ways to add CBD to your daily routine or help you relax when you’re feeling tense, overwhelmed, or pushed to the limit. Our vegan-friendly chocolate bar is infused with 360mg of full-spectrum CBD, and each bar gives you 12 pieces. That breaks down to 30mg of CBD per serving, an amount of CBD that works well for most people. With only 20 calories per piece, your waistline is safe.
CBD and Chocolate? The Overall Health and Wellness Potential Might Surprise You
We weren’t too surprised by the favorable results for calmness and relaxation reported by our survey respondents. Why? Because we know how CBD interacts with the receptors of the largest regulatory system in your body, your endocannabinoid system (ECS). Now we also know that supporting ECS function with CBD and chocolate makes perfect sense. Not only is chocolate flavorful, rich, and satisfying, the cacao beans used to make chocolate are believed to have a few impressive benefits of their own.1
Current research suggests cacao beans contain some of the most potent antioxidants you’ll find in almost any food. Your body needs antioxidants to counter the effects of the free radicals that can damage cell membranes and adversely affect proteins, lipids, and DNA. When free radicals overwhelm your body, your system is more prone to oxidative stress, a known factor in cardiovascular disease, cataracts, neurodegenerative disorders, and more.2
Does that mean chocolate is good for you?
Possibly. Although it’s easy to find reports suggesting moderate chocolate consumption could be good for your health, some chocolate contains only 10% cacao (or less). That’s why so many dietitians and nutritionists recommend crossing over to the dark side. The higher the percentage of cacao in your chocolate, the more fiber, minerals, and antioxidants your chocolate contains.3 Cacao is also a great source of magnesium and tryptophan. Magnesium is shown to relax tense muscles and help your body produce melatonin. Tryptophan is important for serotonin production, a neurotransmitter essential for relaxation and sleep regulation.4,5
Indulging in Sweet Relaxation with CBDistillery® CBD Dark Chocolate
Our CBDistillery® CBD Premium Dark Chocolate Bar is 72% cacao. Each piece delivers a consistent amount of CBD per serving. Since your serving of CBD is pre-measured, you’ll never have to worry about shaking a bottle, calculating a serving size, or counting drops. Although you’ll likely find our decadently rich dark chocolate wonderful on its own, you may also appreciate the following four ways to further enjoy your experience.
#1 – Add CBD to a Mug of Hot Chocolate or Cocoa
A steaming cup of hot chocolate is a great way to unwind after a rough day or before turning in for the night. Whether you prefer making your hot chocolate from scratch or using a mix, you’re sure to love the results of adding a serving of CBD-infused chocolate to your mug.The rich dark chocolate enhances the flavor of your beverage as the CBD delivers its potential to calm your mind and relax your body.
#2 – Bake CBD Brownies, Cookies, or Muffins
When you’re craving brownies, cookies, cake, or muffins, consider infusing your favorite recipe with CBD. If your recipe calls for cocoa powder, melt your CBD-infused chocolate over a double boiler or in your microwave for easy blending. To relax with a delicious CBD chocolate chip cookie, chop the chocolate and mix it into your dough before baking. To preserve the cannabinoids, baking temperatures should not exceed 320°.6
#3 – Create CBD-infused Treats by Coating Your Candy Molds
If you enjoy making candy, you’re sure to love the option of coating your candy molds with CBD chocolate. You can use our chocolate on its own, blend our CBD-infused confection with your preferred chocolate melts, or add our luscious chocolate to your favorite cream filling. To determine the amount of CBD per piece, divide the total number of milligrams of chocolate you’ve used (30mg per piece) by the number of edibles you’ve created.
#4 – Add Melted CBD Chocolate to Desserts, Ice Cream or Chilled Fruit
Turn ice cream or chilled fruit into a relaxing dessert with a rich CBD-infused chocolate topping. When you melt our dark chocolate with a small amount of coconut oil, the mixture hardens when chilled to form a smooth candy shell similar to the coating on an ice cream bar. If you’re trying to reduce your carb intake, consider drizzling the CBD chocolate/coconut oil mixture on your favorite keto fat bombs. Dark chocolate (in moderation) is a popular perk of a low-carb lifestyle.
