CBD has been a hot topic in recent years. Although still in its infancy, it has proved to have an extraordinary effect on your health and well-being; you’re probably wondering, what exactly is it?
To begin with, it is a naturally occurring element; a cannabinoid out of many others present in the cannabis plant. With the advances in the technology, it is available in many forms for easy consumption, such as CBD oils and vapes.
However, it has been extracted from a herb. This means, it will come with an unfavorable taste; the taste of terpenes and signature herb flavour isn’t a popular flavour.
At Melt Chocolates, this is where our professional chocolatiers have gone all out and combined the two ingredients to create CBD Chocolates; this luxurious sweet treat offers the ability of being healthy while not compromising on taste.
If you’re ready to give this combination a try, then it’s important that you understand the basics of CBD chocolates.
Before that, let’s understand a little more about CBD.
An abbreviation for cannabinoid, CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
However, apart from the plant, these cannabinoids are also present in our body and the only difference is their name. Ours are known as endocannabinoids and they are mainly present in our ECS, the system that’s present in our main nervous system.
When it comes to CBD’s effects though, biologically, the cannabinoid reacts with your receptors in the ECS to give you the well known health benefits.
Having said that, when consumed alone, CBD is known to have an unlikable flavour which is why we, at Melt, have created CBD chocolates to help you enjoy its benefits without experiencing its unpleasant taste.
After understanding the meaning of CBD chocolate, now is the time to dig deeper. The obvious question being, why combine it with chocolate?
Needless to say, the answer resides in the great taste that chocolate brings which is unmatched by any other ingredient. Simply put, chocolate tastes delicious, while CBD, being a part of a plant, has the signature herb flavour and terpenes that are usually associated with the taste of herbs (marijuana in this case).
When combined with quality chocolate, however, the inherent and delicious flavour of it will complement and cover the terpene flavour of CBD.
Moreover, CBD has naturally occurring antioxidants properties and if you look closely, chocolate has them too!
With this, the cacao also has many other essential minerals such as magnesium, iron, copper and potassium. The amalgamation of CBD with chocolate, therefore, gives you many benefits, such as –
However, ensure that you’re consuming them in a limited amount to reap just the right benefits.
Due to its potential to form varied combinations according to the required customisations, it is difficult to highlight an amount of CBD that might work for you. Having said that, the amount will vary based on why you’re using it in the chocolate.
At Melt, we have combined these two ingredients to create a superfood that we like to call the ‘taste of earthly paradise’ and offer products like CBD bar and Hemp Dark Chocolate which have the ideal amount of CBD in it.
Now, when it comes to eating this chocolate, take a chunk from the bar and let it melt under your tongue to help the release of CBD in your body.
Ideally, you should start with small chunks and maintain this consistency for at least three days. If you feel no difference, you can always have larger pieces of chocolates in your routine.
That said, since CBD usage in the UK is still in its infancy, we have taken all the necessary actions and tested every ingredient to give you this product.

CBD has to be consumed in the most natural, organically extracted form and to form the chocolate-infused CBD, our experienced chocolatiers use quality materials, precision and the right techniques to provide you with this delicacy.
