  • Most of the cacao that is used in commercial chocolate comes from a hybrid bean, which is very highly caffeinated. 

  • Criollo cacao beans are what ceremonial grade cacao is made from, and is higher in theobromine, which is known to absorb more slowly and thus feels more grounding than caffeine.

  • Nicole and Shanna experienced their own cacao ceremony, and had some grounding, deep conversations on the state of the world right now.
