There are several reasons why chocolates are the most popular form of edibles to consume. The taste and variety of chocolates is at the top for reasons why chocolate edibles are the best. With what started as a delicious candy and chocolate company, now merged into delicious edibles, we took our time crafting only the best chocolate edibles on the market.
Why Consume Edibles?
Edibles most commonly come in the form of foods and candies that have been infused with cannabis. Edibles are popular because they offer a different experience compared to smoking or inhaling cannabis. You can also eat edibles discreetly if you don't want people to know that you're using marijuana. At XITE, we have all kinds of edible options in the form of hard candies, gummies, popcorn, carmels, chocolate bars and more.
Consuming edibles delivers cannabinoids to the body through the gastrointestinal system, which allows for a more gradual absorption than smoking or vaporizing the herb. The popularity of edibles has increased over recent years as more people recognize its potential benefits.
THC and Chocolate Chemical Pair
Marijuana and chocolate have been used together for centuries as a way to heighten one's experience. The combination of these two substances can be quite powerful because both chocolate and marijuana contain chemical compounds that work on the brain in similar ways.
The main psychoactive compound in marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is a cannabinoid that interacts with receptors in the brain that control memory, pleasure, thought, and concentration. This interaction has been shown to create a euphoric feeling when someone uses edibles in varying levels of THC.
Chocolate contains another chemical compound called phenylethylamine (PEA). PEA is also known as the "love drug" because it's believed to increase feelings of love and attraction between people by increasing dopamine levels in the brain. Dopamine is responsible for feelings such as happiness, pleasure, and motivation; it also helps regulate our emotions, moods, and appetites. Are you starting to see why these make a great pairing?
What Are the Benefits of Choosing Chocolate Edibles?
Chocolate is a delicious treat that can also be good for you. It's high in antioxidants and has chemicals that can help improve your mood, lower blood pressure, and even boost your brain function. Here are the benefits of consuming THC chocolate.
Chocolate Can Help You Relax
If you’re feeling stressed out or anxious, then you could consider eating some chocolate edibles. Eating chocolate can cause the brain to release endorphins that help reduce stress and anxiety levels throughout your body. The endorphins from chocolate can also help you feel happier and more relaxed overall.
Chocolate Edibles Last Longer Than Smoking or Vaping
Smoking or vaping cannabis produces an immediate effect because THC (the main psychoactive chemical in marijuana) goes straight into your bloodstream through your lungs when you smoke or breathe it in through the nose when you vape. When you eat edibles, it takes longer for your body to digest them — anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours after eating an edible, you'll feel its effects kick in. Eating edibles give users more control over how much they consume because they know exactly how many milligrams of THC are entering their bodies.
Chocolate Edibles Taste Far Better Than Smoking or Vaping
The most obvious benefit of choosing chocolate is that it tastes better than smoking or vaping. There’s nothing like a delicious piece of chocolate after dinner, and that’s what you get when you choose cannabis edibles over smoking or vaping. You get to enjoy the taste of your favorite types of edibles without having to worry about the chemicals involved in smoking or vaping.
Chocolate Edibles Are Healthier Than Smoking and Vaping
Not only do cannabis-infused chocolates taste great, but they also provide health benefits that other forms of consumption don’t offer. While smoking or vaping can be harmful to your lungs and throat, edibles allow for easy digestion and absorption into your bloodstream through your stomach lining rather than through your lungs. This makes them much safer for those who have compromised immune systems or respiratory issues.
You Can Get a Variety of Flavors in Chocolate Edibles
Chocolate is one of the most popular flavors for edibles. The reason for this is because it can be made into many different types of chocolate edibles. We offer dark chocolates, milk chocolates, cookies and cream chocolates and more. Each type has its own unique taste made from perfectly crafted recipes. You can choose which type you want to try based on your personal preferences.
Chocolate Works Well With Terpenes and Cannabinoids
Chocolates have flavonoids that enhance and work well with terpenes and cannabinoids. Chocolate is oil based as is our full spectrum distillate allowing them to bind to the fats of the chocolates for better absorption once consumed. To know your edible has terpenes, you want your edible to have a subtle floral taste. While this isn't everyone’s favorite taste, chocolate blends well with that floral flavor making for a delicious treat.
