FOOD AS MEDICINE
CBD is one of at least 113 active chemical compounds called cannabinoids in cannabis (and hemp). These Cannabinoids are molecules that block or stimulate endocannabinoid receptors found in the body. Our bodies have an extensive endocannabinoid system that has wide ranging effects on the immune system, cardiovascular system, nervous system and beyond. Pre-clinical research (including both cell culture and animal models) has shown CBD to have a range of effects that may be therapeutically useful, including anti-seizure, antioxidant, neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-tumor, anti-psychotic, and anti-anxiety properties.

1 Tbsp Cacao Powder
Pour the coffee into blender and add cacao butter, powder and peppermint CBD oil. Allow cacao butter to melt with the heat of the coffee for about 1 minute. Blend about 30 seconds until combined and a frothy head forms. Enjoy!
