Chocolate is very dear to my heart, I mean to my stomach. Chocolate can call you by name. It satisfies and it can be just what you need, even in small portions. I thank God for chocolate especially when it comes in various forms. When I was introduced to Barlean’s Seriously Delicious CBD, I was intrigued because it came in one of my favorite flavors: Chocolate Mint.
CBD hemp oil, or cannabidiol, is very much trending right now. I usually do not like to become part of trends but hemp oil has really alleviated and helped my migraines. It was really one of my last resorts! Barlean’s has come out with a line of CBD hemp oils in a variety of doses.
Don’t exactly know what it is?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of more than 85 unique compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are known to promote health and keep people resilient to changes in their environment.
CBD does not make you “high.” CBD is non-psychoactive (it doesn’t make you feel euphoric) and is considered extremely safe. In fact, CBD can actually counteract the psycho-activity of THC, the compound of marijuana that make you feel “high.”
The chocolate mint flavored CBD hemp oil delivers 25 mg and is able to be process by the body much better because it is pre-emulsified, so the body can better absorb the nutrients.
While this lovely tasty emulsion can be taken on its own I decided to add it to a dessert to create a relaxing evening with my husband. Chocolate and CBD make a great combination with relaxing benefits because of a specific common neurotransmitter present as a compound. It decreases the breakdown of the neurotransmitter allowing the naturally-produced bliss. Read more in the article that Barlean’s published on CBD and Chocolate.
