Melt holiday stress with this CBD Hot Chocolate

New video: CBD Hot Chocolate


Let’s face it — when it comes to stress relief, a lot of us reach for chocolate.

But candy and other treats containing refined sugar aren’t good for our immune system, skin, or blood sugar levels.

So, I came up with a delicious chocolatey recipe that definitely tastes like a sweet treat — with a stress relief remedy built right in. The result: a Stress Melting CBD Hot Chocolate.


Getting started with CBD

Now let’s talk about CBD. It’s getting tons of buzz these days as a magical wellness elixir. 

CBD stands for cannabidiol, an anti-inflammatory compound that can be extracted from either a hemp plant or a marijuana plant. CBD is one of only dozens of compounds found in cannabis. It’s getting a lot of attention these days because, unlike THC, it is non-psychoactive and non-intoxicating.

CBD has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation, and to reduce anxiety — all without giving you the “high” associated with the THC compound in marijuana.


Should you use CBD from hemp or marijuana plants?


In Oregon and Washington, you can legally purchase CBD made from either hemp or marijuana. I’d recommend going with a hemp CBD if you’re worried about the trace amounts of THC that can be in the tinctures made from the marijuana plant.

In the Portland area, you can find CBD tinctures in any cannabis shop. You can also find the brand I used for this recipe — Select CBD — at the CBD Hemp Store in SE Portland. 

I also really like the Earth Blend from Luminous Botanicals. The Earth Blend has a 9:1 CBD-to-THC ratio that is non-intoxicating when using the standard dose. The small amount of THC actually activates the CBD, and increases its efficacy without giving you the high associated with higher amounts of THC.
