Warm up & open your heart w/ ceremonial cacao. Many people take a thick paste of cacao for ceremonies. This is more for microdosing cacao in small amounts. Minerals: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium. Antioxidants: flavonoids & theobromine. Vitamins B & E.
Cacao is not the same as powdered cacao. It’s much more nutritional. Helps release happy hormones into your brain so if you’d feeling down or have the winter blues then this cup of love will chear you right up. I like to have mine while I journal or pull cards. I also use to before I create potions for the shop.
Create your own mini ceremony or with a friend. Before you drink set your intentions. Hold the cup to your heart & say thank you to the ether, air, fire, water, & earth elements. Thank you for all who had their hands in creating this mixture & the cacao spirits. Before every drink say something your grateful for. If you’re drinking with a friend. Drink when they share what they are thankful for.
For thick ceremonial paste cacao I suggest you find a ethical source. This is microdose style. If you’d like to make it thick for fast release. Use 4 tsp w/ 3oz of water. Sprinkle cayenne pepper to help eneter the blood stream quicker. Using 4tsp will use up you mix which is why I suggest finding the paste for ceremonies.

The Positive Impacts of Cacao on Mood
Regularly working with ceremonial cacao can have therapeutic health benefits, including creating new neural pathways that change our daily experience to include more joy, love, and connection. Pure cacao contains beneficial neurotransmitters and neuro-modulators already present in our brain, most notably including:
Norepinephrine - The joy molecule
Serotonin - Helps with wellbeing, and creates resistance to stress. Cacao also has MOA inhibitors, that inhibit re-uptake of serotonin.
Dopamine - Gives feelings of motivation and pleasure. Cacao also has MOA inhibitors, that inhibit re-uptake of dopamine.
Anandamine - The bliss molecule, it moderates pain, and is associated with the "runners high" effect. Cacao also has N-linoleoylethanolamine, the re-uptake inhibitor for anandamine.
Phenylethylamine (PEA) - Helps with excitement, alertness, attention. Gives the perception of time slowing down.
How Much Caffeine Is In Cacao?
Caffeine is often confused with the primarily stimulant molecule in cacao, theobromine. There actually isn't much caffeine in our cacaos at all .... the misconception arises from the fact that the cane sugar used to sweeten most chocolate bars gives a caffeine like energy rush. But since we make pure cacao without sugar you are probably wondering now:
What is Theobromine, and How is it Different than Caffeine?
Theobromine is an alkaloid in the methylxanthine class of compounds, which also contain caffeine, mateine, and more. Theobromine simultaneously stimulates the heart and relaxes blood vessels, together producing an effect of 30-40% higher blood circulation. This improves absorption of other important nutrients in cacao or other superfoods that it is paired with.
When Shouldn't I Drink Cacao?
We definitely DO NOT recommend cacao if you are taking any sort of mood altering medications, such as anti-depressants with SSRIs, or any medication that works in the dopamine or serotonin pathways.
You can see more on this topic under the Ceremonial Cacao & SSRIs FAQ.
Other health contraindications we have heard of over time:
It may cause an aggravation of acid reflux or ulcers.
It may cause breaking out when an individual has herpes.
If pregnant, we recommend not starting with cacao if you don't already have a practice with it. If you do have a cacao practice, we recommend 1/4-1/2 of what you normally intake. Ashwagandha, which is in our Vibrant Vitality blend, is not recommended during pregnancy.
While breast feeding, cacao is safe. Just keep an eye out on the baby, and see if the baby likes it or not.
