I've been a huge fan of CBD for a long time. If you're not familiar with what it is, CBD is a natural component in both cannabis and hemp. It's nonpsychoactive, so it won't get you high or stoned. It binds to receptors throughout the body, instead of the brain, and helps to reduce inflammation and chronic pain.
There are all sorts of CBD products we're fans of here at POPSUGAR. I personally like CBD oils and chocolates, and I've tried my fair share of both. I recently came across the very best CBD chocolate I've ever had, though.
Meet Vital Leaf, the brand that makes three different flavours of the most delicious, relaxing CBD chocolate you'll ever eat. My favourite flavour is the Quinoa ($12); it's 73 percent cacao and made with the simplest of organic ingredients, like fair-trade cacao paste, fair-trade cacao butter, responsibly sourced popped quinoa, and hemp-derived CBD. There are 100 mg. of CBD in each chocolate bar, with 10 mg. of CBD in each serving.
First, let's talk about the taste. It's the perfect hint of sweetness with the happiest crunch, which comes from the popped quinoa. If you're craving something sweet but don't want to derail your healthy eating routine, this chocolate is the perfect solution. I've had some experience in the past with CBD chocolate that's sickly sweet or has too much of a stevia flavour, but you won't find that problem with this product.
Within half an hour of eating two servings of this chocolate, I felt a sense of calm wash over me. I felt more relaxed, less stressed, and ready to take on the rest of my busy schedule that day. I'm going to stock up on these immediately — and I recommend you do the same!
