What’s in the CBD Genesis Chocolate Bar?
This CBD chocolate bar is not only about the CBD. The full-spectrum extract used enhances the overall effects of the product and the raw cacao makes for a delicious chocolatey taste.
70% Raw Cacao
With 70% raw cacao, this bar offers an authentic dark chocolate experience. And, interestingly, dark chocolate has lots of health benefits in its own right. Research shows that dark chocolate is very nutritious, and is packed with fiber, iron and magnesium – all of which are daily essentials.
Dark chocolate is also rich in antioxidants, which help to alleviate oxidative stress on the brain. The cacao may also provide general benefits for cognition.
Intriguingly, cacao has been found to produce the natural endocannabinoid anandamide (AEA). This compound is produced by the body, and is key to optimum functioning in the endocannabinoid system (ECS), where CBD has its biggest benefit. AEA helps with appetite and mood regulation, is an anti-inflammatory and dampens sensitivity to pain.
The lab report that we provide confirms that this product is made with full-spectrum CBD. This can be found by clicking the link under the ‘Lab Tests’ tab on this very page. The analysis shows that there is a high CBD content of 1.68mg/g, which works out to a shade over 50mg CBD in the 30-gram bar. The report also clarifies that there is less than 0.3% THC.
As a full-spectrum extract, the presence of other cannabinoids is guaranteed. This product has trace levels of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid cannabichromene (CBC). The inclusion of other cannabinoids with the CBD even boosts the therapeutic value of the CBD itself.
CBC is a useful anti-inflammatory, an effect that it exerts by binding to the CB2 receptor in the ECS. Research indicates that the cannabinoid is also a helpful analgesic, and that it has a restorative effect on the brain. CBC stimulates neurogenesis in the hippocampus, which may have benefits for both short and long-term memory.
