If you ask most people, many will say that eating chocolate is one of their favorite guilty pleasures. While people readily claim chocolate as a favorite, fewer people are quick to admit that consuming cannabis is another go-to past time.
Why is consuming cannabis and chocolate so similar in experience? As Leafly explains, “The effects of eating chocolate are in many ways chemically similar to the effects of consuming cannabis. Cacao beans even produce a kind of cannabinoid of their own – anandamide – which binds to the same receptors as THC in the brain, and mimics the pleasant feelings that cannabinoids catalyze.”
