Did you know that chocolate contains cannabinoids?

Yes, it's true, chocolate does contain cannabinoids. For the record, cannabinoids are chemicals that act on cannabinoid receptors in the brain and induce a sense of euphoria among other things. A very notable example is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (which is present in marijuana/cannabis obviously). While chocolate doesn't contain THC, it does contain cannabinoids like anandamide (AEA). The darker the chocolate, the higher the concentration of these substances. This is exactly why people love chocolate so much. If you consume a modest amount of chocolate (especially dark chocolate), you're basically getting a slight high off of it. Isn't that cool? I just drank a cup of some really rich hot chocolate not that long ago and I'm already feeling pretty good off of it lol. I think it's common knowledge that chocolate contains caffeine, but I don't think many people know about the cannabinoids, do they?
