These Chocolates Could Help You Calm Allllll The Way Down
We don’t know about you, but when we’re stressed, we tend to pop a bottle of red and dig through our chocolate stash. And while we’d like to think these indulgences calm us down, we don’t have any proof that our mental health is strengthening as a result. Luckily, one company created a chocolate product that actually can reduce anxiety and stress. Everyone, welcome the Not Pot CBD Chocolate Hearts.
Not Pot, a company that makes chocolates using cannabidiol (or CBD, a non-psychoactive chemical compound known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects), created chocolates with two milligrams of the compound, which is a very low dose. The ideal effect, according to their website, is a subtle decrease in anxiety.
The chocolates are organic, vegan, dairy-free and soy-free, and are made from the CBD-rich hemp oil, raw cacao, maple sugar and ashwagandha (an ancient herb used to combat stress and anxiety).
Not Pot’s website recommends one chocolate a day for the best calming results. We can’t eat just one chocolate typically, but we’d compromise if it meant chilling us the hell out. You can buy the chocolates for $29.99, and a single package includes 30 chocolates.
We’re dying to try these treats. There’s nothing better than a food that can both comfort your inner sweet tooth and reduce anxiety. Sounds like a win-win to us.
NOTE: CBD is not currently legal for purchase in all 50 states.
