Cheerful Buddha Naturally

Vegan CBD Chocolate.

Maluka CBD ChocolateFor many the mention of hemp conjures pictures of hippie tie-dye and wacky backy.  CBD is very different, legal, and is said to have positive health benefits. CBD is short for cannabidiol which is a chemical compound derived from the cannabis plant. It’s thought to affect the body’s cell-signalling system which helps to regulate one’s sleep as well as immune functions.

Cheerful Buddha was founded in 2019 with a mission to promote the health-enhancing properties of hemp and to present that in both food and drinks. They use the highest quality natural ingredients extracted from sustainable plants.

Unique and single-origin 70% dark chocolate

Cheerful Buddha’s products are 100% natural, and CBD Dark Chocolate is sourced from Seram Island, Maluku province in Indonesia. All the cacao is 100% traceable and purchased from a fair-trade cooperative on the island. The dark chocolate is naturally flavoured with CBD drops. These bars are unique and single-origin 70% dark chocolate.

The CBD Natural flavour chocolate delivers rich cocoa taste with a hint of spice. The Orange flavour has hints of fresh zest. The Mint flavour is perhaps my favourite with lingering minty taste which I found appealing. One doesn’t feel like this is a ‘healthy’ preparation but just a rather good dark chocolate bar.

The company adds 70mg of CBD into their chocolate, so you’ll have just enough to benefit from the restorative effects of CBD in each bar. It is suggested that one enjoys a few squares throughout the day for a slow release of positive energy.  Along with CBD, dark chocolate is full of antioxidants which is known to lower blood pressure and improve blood circulation. Cocoa beans are also said to trigger the release of endorphins, making you feel more positive about your day.

Fairtrade chocolate is palm oil-free and uses cocoa beans which have been ethically farmed.

Cheerful Buddha’s chocolate is free from any animal products and is completely vegan-friendly. The CBD oil has been rigorously lab tested to ensure it contains no detectable levels of THC, the substance which gets you ‘high.’ Instead, one can just appreciate the restorative and calming effects of CBD oil, without any tie-dye side effects.
