A CBD Chocolate FAQ
CBD chocolate is quickly becoming a crowd-favorite way to get all of CBD’s therapeutic benefits. And why not? Creamy, delicious, and available in all the classic chocolate varieties, it’s simply one of the most decadent ways to treat yourself — and your body — to the very best of hemp treatment.
But like any new CBD product, CBD chocolate is sure to raise a few eyebrows and beg a few questions. What exactly is CBD chocolate? Is it safe? Effective? Is CBD chocolate legal? And what should you expect from your first CBD chocolate experience?
In this article, we cover these and more of the most frequently asked questions surrounding CBD chocolate. We give you everything you need to know to decide whether these delectable CBD edibles are right for you. Let’s dive in.
What is CBD Chocolate?
As its name would imply, CBD chocolate is a chocolate candy that has been infused with cannabidiol, or “CBD”, the main therapeutic cannabinoid found in hemp.
CBD chocolate is, in almost every respect, identical to traditional chocolate. It comes in all varieties of traditional chocolate flavors, including milk, dark, and white chocolate.
In short: CBD chocolate is one of the most delicious ways to enjoy a dose of CBD and all the benefits it can provide. Any chocolate lover would be well served to consider a CBD chocolate for their treatment needs.
Can You Cook With CBD Chocolate?
CBD chocolate is undoubtedly delicious on its own, but what about using it to create delicious CBD desserts? Well, good news: anything you’d want to make with traditional chocolate, you can use a CBD chocolate bar just as easily!
From chocolate cake to chocolate-covered strawberries, ice creams, chocolate chip cookies, and more, CBD chocolate is a great option for virtually any chocoholic delight.
The only thing to keep in mind is that most brands sell CBD chocolate bars as opposed to chocolate chips or other cooking-specific forms. That means you may need to cut your CBD chocolate bars into chunks, shave them down, or melt them as appropriate for the recipe that you have in mind.
Where to Buy CBD Chocolate?
Many brands offer their own CBD chocolate bars, which can be found with various online vendors, including here at CBD Choice.
The most important thing is to ensure that you are buying from a reputable source that can prove the purity and quality of their CBD chocolate products. For more on the importance of choosing the right vendor, see the “Does CBD Chocolate Work?” section below.
CBD Choice currently offers the following types of CBD chocolate, but we’re always expanding our inventory.
- CBD Living Milk Chocolate CBD Bar
- CBD Living Dark Chocolate CBD Bar
- Green Roads Dark Chocolate CBD Bar
What Does CBD Chocolate Do?
People take CBD for a wide variety of reasons, and CBD chocolate can benefit users in precisely the same ways as other CBD treatment options.
The most common reasons for taking CBD include:
- Pain relief and management
- Fighting inflammation
- Help getting better sleep
- Relieving anxiety and other mental health benefits
- Reducing the frequency and severity of epileptic seizures
Of course, chocolate (and especially dark chocolate) brings its own possible health benefits. In moderate amounts, these benefits include:
- Rich source of antioxidants
- Can help balance good and bad cholesterol
- May improve blood flow and/or lower blood pressure
But let’s not kid ourselves: the main draw of CBD chocolate is that it’s absolutely delicious. When combined with the potential benefits above, CBD chocolate becomes a guilt-free way of improving your whole-body wellness and enjoying the ride.
Does CBD Chocolate Work?
CBD chocolate absolutely works and can deliver any of the CBD benefits listed above. However, there are some important things to keep in mind.
1. Choose the Right Source
The most important thing is to make sure that you’re buying from a reputable vendor. Unfortunately, some shady “CBD vendors” have been known to sell inferior quality products — sometimes without any actual CBD or even with harmful contaminants!
Only shop with vendors who can prove the quality of their products with comprehensive laboratory test results. Want to see test results for any of our products? Just reach out to our Customer Support team, who will be happy to help.
2. Know What to Expect
CBD’s effects are subtle, and you may not notice them at first. For instance, many users claim that they hardly notice the reduction in anxiety until, looking back, they realize that their day was more tranquil than they’d otherwise expect.
Also, CBD chocolate may be better suited to some treatments than others. For instance, it may be a great way of helping reduce anxiety (a chocolate dessert never hurts that!); on the other hand, it may not be great for improving sleep, as the caffeine in chocolate could keep you up.
Further, CBD chocolate is not the best option for regulating epileptic seizures. Although CBD for epilepsy is well-researched and proven, it requires high doses and careful concentrations. You simply won’t get that from CBD chocolate bars. If you’re considering CBD for epilepsy, the best option is to talk to your doctor about CBD.
Does CBD Chocolate Get You High?
No, CBD chocolate does not get you high — as long as it’s sold by a reputable vendor whose products follow the 2018 Farm Bill.
That’s because CBD chocolate is made from hemp, the less-famous (and non-intoxicating) cousin of marijuana. Although both are forms of the cannabis plant, they have very different balances of natural compounds called cannabinoids.
- Marijuana has very high levels of intoxicating THC and very low levels of non-intoxicating CBD.
- Hemp has minimal levels of intoxicating THC and very high levels of non-intoxicating CBD.
Even though hemp extracts may contain some THC, these amounts are dramatically lower than would be required to cause a “high” or other intoxication.
Is CBD Chocolate Legal?
Yes, CBD chocolate is legal throughout the United States under legislation known as the 2018 Farm Bill.
The Farm Bill effectively created the legal CBD industry by creating a legal distinction between marijuana (which can get users high) and hemp (which can’t). As a result, CBD products are legal for sale and consumption so long as:
- They are made from hemp, not marijuana, and
- They contain less than 0.3% THC by dry volume (far less than necessary to cause intoxication).
All CBD chocolate you’ll find here at CBD Choice is fully compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill and is 100% legal for purchase and use anywhere in the United States.
CBD Chocolate, In Closing
CBD chocolate isn’t just a great way to enjoy all of CBD’s therapeutic benefits. It’s also a surefire way to satisfy any chocoholic’s sweet tooth and feel good doing it. It’s the perfect fusion of flavor and function, offering a host of wellness benefits in a package that turns your treatment into a treat.
Of course, different forms of CBD are better for different purposes, and CBD chocolate may not be the best choice for all users. It tends to offer lower doses of CBD than some other products, and, like all edibles, it will be slower-acting than CBD tinctures or inhaled CBD.
But if you’re looking to enjoy some of the tastiest in town, there may be no better choice than a delicious CBD chocolate bar. Whether enjoyed on its own or used to make CBD hot chocolate or a delicious CBD dessert, CBD chocolate is simply one of the most delicious and versatile CBD products you’ll find anywhere.
