We’ve made CBD-infused chocolate that combines 2 of the world’s most sought after superfoods to make the ultimate super, superfood. It’s packed full of high levels of both cocoa and full-spectrum CBD that have nutritious properties and perceived health benefits.
But how did we make the ultimate super, superfood and what does this even mean?
What is a superfood?
The term “superfood” is widely used in marketing to define an unprocessed food (usually a herb, plant, fruit or vegetable) that’s high in vitamins, minerals and nutrients and is thought to offer certain health benefits.
In fact, the Merriam-Webster dictionary specifically lists a superfood as "a food that is rich in compounds (such as antioxidants, fibre, or fatty acids) considered beneficial to a person's health”.
Superfoods are considered to be more nutritious than other foods so people who are health-conscious often prefer to choose a diet that’s filled with superfoods to maintain optimum health.
Is CBD a superfood?
CBD works by interacting with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system (ECS) and helps the body to maintain a balance called homeostasis. When the body is in homeostasis people have reported noticing that certain symptoms, such as anxiety, insomnia, and depression are alleviated.
It’s these perceived health benefits that push CBD into the superfood category.
Is chocolate a superfood?
Cocoa is the main ingredient in chocolate, with dark chocolate containing more cocoa content than milk chocolate. Scientific studies have shown that cocoa contains high levels of antioxidants and the more cocoa in the chocolate, the higher the antioxidant capacity.
Antioxidants are responsible for preventing or slowing down damage to cells caused by free radicals and are thought to generally boost the body’s overall health.
The high levels of antioxidants present in cocoa make dark chocolate a superfood.
How we made the ultimate super, superfood
It made sense to us to combine 2 superfoods together to create the ultimate super, superfood. We chose dark chocolate and CBD so we could create an edible that was as delicious as it was nutritious.
We worked hard in the testing phase, working with various ingredients to find the perfect combination. Our final product is dark chocolate balls infused with full-spectrum CBD.
The high amount of cocoa (64%) that we’ve used in our dark chocolate ensures that our edible has high levels of antioxidants and allows for a rich chocolate taste with no flavour of hemp.
Whilst the high levels of CBD in each box of chocolates (200mg of CBD per 100g box) ensures a high potency to allow all of the potential health benefits from cannabis.
Most CBD edibles on the market tend to use CBD isolate because it's generally cheaper and easier to blend with a food product. However, we wanted to use full-spectrum CBD to offer the benefits of the entourage effect where the whole plant works together and it's thought to produce better results.
