See you later, cocaine. Good riddance, MDMA. Hello ... cacao?!
Yes, according to Ozy, people are actually snorting lines of cacao to get high now—which gives new meaning to the phrase "nose candy." And no, you're not trapped inside an episode of Portlandia.
If you've consumed cacao before—most likely in truffle form—you might have noticed that you got an instant burst of energy from it. And this actually makes sense—because it's a great source of manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium. Not only that but it contains antioxidants and mood-boosting substances like phenylethylamine, which makes us feel excited, anandamide, which has a relaxing effect, and tryptophan, which creates serotonin. The flavanols in cacao also increase blood circulation and stimulate brain power.
