CBD and chocolate combined are what makes these treats incredible! Today we are making 4 Ingredient Keto CBD Cups.
It’s time to shine the light on CBD and how beneficial it is for your wellness!
Plus, when consumed, the work it can do internally provides so many more health benefits as we’ll explore today.
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is the non-psychoactive part of the cannabis plant.
Unlike THC, CBD does not cause you to feel high.
Because there are no psychoactive effects of CBD, it is legal in all U.S states, as long as the THC count is 0.3 % or under.
Both CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system in your body in a positive and healthy way.
The main difference between the two is that CBD will not get you high, and THC will.
CBD can come from EITHER the marijuana OR hemp plant!
It’s important to know that CBD derived from hemp is not the same as hemp seeds you find on the shelves of your local grocery store.
Hemp seeds do not come from the whole cannabis plant like CBD hemp oil – we know, it can be confusing!
CBD Hemp is made from the seeds, where CBD is made from the whole cannabis plant (leaves, flowers, stems).

CB1 receptors are located in the brain and nervous system, and CB2 receptors are located in your immune system.
This means, that the human body is able to make it’s own cannabinoids, and when taking CBD, it increases responses, can boost the immune system, and work in synchronicity with your brain to support health and wellness overall.
These easy-to-make, 4 ingredient Keto CBD cups are a fun and great way to add CBD into your daily routine.
Plus? They’re super tasty!
They are both not too sweet, and not too bitter – making them just right. You can always add in raw honey to sweeten them up if you like.
