All about cocoa: psychoactive stimulant and alternative to mdma
We dive into the magical world of cocoa and learn all about this psychoactive stimulant. Most people regularly eat chocolate - cocoa or otherwise. Currently, cacao ceremonies have increased in popularity in recent years and more attention is being paid to its original use as a medicine and natural drug. Is it true that cocoa possesses the same euphoric and loving properties as the drug mdma?
History of using cocoa as a sacred stimulant
Humans have used cocoa for centuries for a variety of reasons. Cacao is a highly nutritious product, high in fats and antioxidants. But what exactly is cacao?
Cacao is the dried and fermented bean of Theobroma cacao.
This tree originally grows in South America and has been used as a sacred medicine since time immemorial.
The cacao tree contains large fruits that inside contain sweet, juicy pulp containing seeds, also called cacao beans. These cacao beans are used as a base within the chocolate industry.
Indigenous peoples saw the cacao tree as a gift from the gods. Hence the Latin name Theobroma cacao, meaning "food of the gods".
The fruits of the cacao tree were used as food and to make health products.
There are numerous properties associated with cacao. What are the effects of cocoa? The following is an overview.
Properties and effects of cocoa
Cocoa opens the heart and in this way can be compared to mdma
Did you know that cocoa has a bonding effect and can help open the heart? This happens on a physical level by engaging the cardiovascular system. This can make you feel like you can breathe better and experience a physical energy. Cocoa works differently than caffeine, but like caffeine, it can provide a real boost.
On a spiritual level, cocoa is seen as a way to open your heart chakra and thus be able to give and receive more love.
Hence, the effects of cocoa are sometimes compared to those of mdma. Like mdma, substances in cocoa increase serotonin levels. Serotonin is also called the "happiness hormone" and plays an important role in how we feel. Of course, these are two completely different products, yet they both appeal to the heart.
Cacao contains numerous health benefits
Did you know that cocoa contains all sorts of interesting substances that have a beneficial effect on our bodies? Consider, for example, the substance theobromine. The
For the indigenous peoples of Central and South America, cocoa was used for all sorts of health reasons. For example, the Aztecs used cocoa as a remedy for diarrhea, infections and fatigue.
Furthermore, these properties of cocoa were confirmed by a 2006 scientific study, which described how cocoa contains flavonoids that have a health-promoting effect on the body.
Generating lust with cocoa: a natural aphrodisiac
Did you know that cocoa can contribute to a great time between the sheets? Not for nothing did the Mayan king drink as many as 50 cocoa drinks a day to satisfy his harem's sexual performance.
Cocoa is also promoted to this day as a natural aphrodisiac and alternative to Viagra.
Cocoa ceremonies: what is it and why should you participate in them?
You've probably come across the word "cocoa ceremony" before. But what is it really and why should you participate in it? As mentioned above, cocoa is an important basis for various rituals and ceremonies of indigenous peoples of Central America.
Cacao has special properties and this is what these peoples were aware of. A cocoa ceremony is meant to connect with yourself and with others.
A cocoa ceremony involves drinking a cocoa drink with others. This consists of pure cocoa, water and spices such as cinnamon, cardamom and cayenne pepper. Optionally, the drink is sweetened with some agave syrup or honey.
This traditional way of using cocoa is very different from the way we usually consume cocoa: in the form of chocolate. We do this mainly because of the delicacy, but even here we may experience the beneficial and bonding properties of cocoa. Only, of course, when we eat chocolate that actually contains cocoa.
