Chocolate infused with CBD is not only enjoyable, but increases the efficacy of the CBD. A neurotransmitter called anandamide, also known as “the bliss molecule”, is naturally produced in the brain. Chocolate happens to be the most anandamide-rich plant food in the world. Anandamide is one of the compounds in chocolate that may be associated with the good feeling you get when you eat it.
Scientific findings indicate that anandamide exerts positive effects on mood, memory, brain function, and pain sensation. Findings also show that a deficiency in anandamide is linked to stress-induced anxiety and depression.
This neurotransmitter is normally rapidly broken down by an enzyme in the body called FAAH, but CBD inhibits this enzyme’s activity, prolonging the blissful levels of anandamide in your system. As an added bonus, the lipids (fats) in chocolate have been shown to extend the duration of CBD’s effects, since CBD is fat soluble.
