What is Cacao?
Theobroma cacao literally translates to Food of the Gods! (Theo = God + bromo = food)
Cacao is the grinded beans from the cacao pods - the fruit or seed of the Theobroma Cacao tree.
Indigenous to Central and South America, from the tropical rainforests close to the equator.
Traces of cacao have been found in archaeological excavations from 3200 BC in Ecuadorian Amazons! It was found in ceremonial locations and tombs as it was used in rituals. Along the lines of history it has been used by the Olmecs, Mayans, Toltecs and Aztecs.
Cacao was revealed to Colombus in 1502 and 16 years later Cortes learned about the commercial, cultural, spiritual, dietary and medicinal qualities. An entourage of Spanish Frias and Mayan nobility brought cacao to Europe where is became very popular.

Antioxidants and flavanols slow the damage to cells by free radicals. Cacao supports cardiovascular and cognitive health. Relaxed blood vessels, improves blood flow and lower blood pressure.
Cacao has a unique combination of nutrients and bioactive compounds makes you feel amazing!
Theobromine is a gentle, long-lasting cardiovascular stimulant found almost exclusively in cacao. It lift the mood and energy for an extended period without a crash, up to 10 hours.
The psychoactive compounds in cacao are the neurochemicals Phenylethyklamine (PEA) and anandamide, plus neurotransmitters inhibitors (MAOIs) that extend the effect. Cacao is not psychedelic or hallucinogenic.
PEA – the love chemical – increases dopamine production, enhances attentiveness and elevates mood.
Anandamide – the bliss chemical – is an endogenous cannabinoid found in the brain. A neurotransmitter that targets the same brain structures as THC, the active ingredient in cannabis. Anandamide makes you feel high and blissful.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs) – they maintain mood altering neurotransmitters in brain and they metabolizes serotonin and dopamine. Cacao slows down the breakdown of serotonin and dopamine, making us feel good longer, therefore akt as anti-depressant.
These are some of the main nutritional benefits but there is so much more! Cacao really is the super food of super foods!
”Cacao brings you to the door but doesn't push you through it” - Keith, the Chocolate Shaman
Cacao activates a remembering and access too self-knowledge. It opens and clears creative and energetic channels, gently brings subconscious belief and shadow aspects to the surface.
As an adaptogen, it meets you where you are.
As an entheogen, it takes you to another level.
Cacao is an embodiment medicine. It facilities heightened somatic awareness and access to your body's wisdom.
As cacao moves through the physical body, its active compound encourage muscular tensions and energetic blocks to relax and release. In a similar way that Chinese medicine, like acupuncture, brings balance and healing to the body through enhancing the flow of Chi (Primal Life Force energy) through the meridians, the flow induced by cacao begins to remove psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual blocks.
Intention is key to the deep healing, wisdom and embodiment of the lessons from the Cacao Spirit.
The answer lies within and cacao is a facilitator to access the inner world.
