Recipe: CBD Chocolate Mousse
We’re sure you’ve heard that chocolate can make you, well, happy. After all, it contains serotonin—the neurotransmitter that controls mood. And cacao also contains small amounts of anandamide (a small molecule naturally produced in our bodies). Referred to lovingly as “the bliss molecule” because of its mood enhancing properties, anandamide was the first endocannabinoid discovered in the human brain. And CBD, another cannabinoid, has been found to “enhance” anandamide’s signaling in the body, helping it make us all feel that much better.
All that to say, it sure sounds like CBD and chocolate are a match made in happiness heaven, and we’ve got just the recipe for blending both.
