Most of us agree, both cannabis and chocolate can improve mood and brighten a day. What else do they have in common? Turns out quite a lot! Cannabis and chocolate both contain anti-inflammatory, calmative, antioxidant, and cell-strengthening compounds!
Why cannabis & chocolate are a perfect pair
Chocolate contains a compound called anandamide, which is also known as the “bliss molecule”. Our brain produces this very same chemical, which is similar to cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant. According to researchers, chocolate has been shown to enhance the effect of cannabis by increasing anandamide or “bliss” levels. Though chocolate contains only a small amount of anandamide, combining chocolate and cannabis may allow patients to use less cannabis, reducing risk and saving money. Something to think about!
Wishing you a healthy, bliss-filled February!
