“Meet the Chocolatier” – Adam Kavalier of Holistic Cultivation Center gave an intriguing talk on October 12 at Takoma Wellness Center about why cannabis and dark chocolate make such great medicine together. All the seats were taken for Adam’s lessons on the medical benefits of both cannabis and chocolate, including an abundance of fun facts! Did you know…dark chocolate contains anandamide, which binds to receptors in your endocannabinoid system. This means that dark chocolate plus the right cannabis concentrate for your body can equal an enhanced sense of well-being, euphoria and relaxation (along with reduced perception of pain and other benefits). In the question and answer session that followed, participants addressed extraction techniques, growing cannabis at home and for the DC program, and questions about the varieties of products available from Holistic cultivation.   


Thanks to Adam and the Holistic Cultivation Center staff for a wonderful, informative evening.
