We are excited to share
ORGANIC VEGAN and RAW CHOCOLATE
from Kona Kava Farm!
This completely organic, vegan chocolate is made with only cacao
beans, dehydrated cane juice, soy lecithin, and
all-natural Stevia. Not only is
this chocolate healthy and vegan, it's the best tasting
chocolate we have ever eaten. Both chocolate kinds can be used in recipes, blended with kava drinks,
or eaten right out of the bag. Chocolate has never tasted so
good and been so good for you!
Fair traded, Certified Organic Raw Chocolate, Pure Cocoa nibs
Chocolate starts with a tree called the cacao tree (Theobroma cacao). This tree grows in equatorial regions, especially in places such as South America, Africa and Indonesia.
Raw Chocolate contains
approximately 380 known chemicals, many of them that help us. Dr.
Drewnowski from the University of Michigan found that chocolate
triggers the production of opioids. Opioids are chemicals, such as
those found in opium, that produce a feeling of well-being
(euphoria). He found that eating chocolate causes the brain to
produce natural opiates, which dull pain and increase a feeling of
The truth about the health-benefits of chocolate is finally
hitting the mainstream press. BUT, it's critical to note that chocolate is healthy
ONLY if it is dark with no added dairy products/milk or refined sugar.
Raw cacao beans are the true "food of the gods", and are
as healthy for you as soybeans...but with a delicious chocolate-y
flavor instead of soy, and completely free of adulteration or processing!
Our chocolate and cacao can be added to just about anything or eaten
right out of the bag, but we encourage experimentation, especially
as potentiators for blending with other herbs such as Kanna and

Chocolate Facts & Phenylethylamine (PEA)
PEA is a chemical in
cacao that increases the activity of neurotransmitters (brain
chemicals) in parts of the brain that control our ability to pay
attention and stay alert. Elevated PEA levels occur when we are
captivated by a good book, movie, or project; this happens
specifically during those moments when we are so focused that we
lose all track of time, food, and the outside world. PEA is
noticeably abundant in the brains of happy people.
Anandamide (The Bliss Chemical)
A neurotransmitter called
anandamide (n-arachidonoylethanolamine), has been isolated in cacao
in quantities significant enough to affect the brain. Anandamide is
a cannabinoid naturally found in the human brain. Anandamide is a
lipid (fat) known as "the bliss chemical" because it is released
while we are feeling great.
These rare MAO
inhibitors actually produce favorable results when consumed by
allowing more serotonin and other neurotransmitters such as
anandamide, dopamine, etc. to circulate in the brain. According to
Dr. Gabriel Cousens, MAO inhibitors facilitate youthening and
MAO inhibitors may
make one younger as they allow more neurotransmitters to remain in
the bloodstream. A primary phenomenon that separates children from
adults is the level of neurotransmitters in the blood and bodies of
children. Generally, as one remains on the planet longer and longer,
the level of neurotransmitters decreases. This creates physical
rigidity, less creativity, less joy, and more aging! Cacao, being an
MAO inhibitor, keeps plenty of neurotransmitters in circulation and
thus stops this phenomenon from ever occurring.
Chocolate the Aphrodisiac
As with all languages, the peoples of pre-Columbian Central America often spoke in metaphors composed of words or phrases which, when uttered in sequence, had a hidden meaning. One of these metaphors was yollotl, eztli, "heart, blood," which referred to cacao. Chocolate truly is food for the heart - it is the heart's "blood," due to its magnesium, antioxidants, love chemicals and esoteric properties. Chocolate, as we know it, is known for its sensual love vibration. Chocolate is the symbol of sensuality, pleasure, and sexuality. Some writers have claimed that 50% of women prefer chocolate to sex!
We have often heard that "chocolate opens the heart" - which is actually true. Chocolate is the gift to all lovers. Chocolates are always given as love offerings. A box of chocolates is one of the most common gifts for Valentine's Day.
Cacao is also a great source of serotonin, dopamine, and phenylethylamine, three well-studied neurotransmitters, which help alleviate depression and are associated with feelings of well being. Cacao contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors) that improve our mood because they allow serotonin and dopamine to remain in the bloodstream longer without being broken down. Cacao contains anandamide which delivers blissful feelings. Cacao also contains B vitamins, which are associated with brain health. All this makes cacao a natural
