Say what…. ?
Yes, you can get high on cacao. It is the newest trend in party drugs you can safely use tonight. The first time I noticed this trend last spring, stickers were plastered on the street poles of Amsterdam saying, “Say yes to Cacaoine”. I stopped to have a look at it, and my first thought was that they were advertising a healthier alternative for something. Never could I imagine it as a hard core party drug and that people want to get high on the ‘ChoCo’. I have never been interested in hard drugs but this definitely caught my attention.
BUT HOLDUP. Chocolate is healthy! It lowers cholesterol, has lots of antioxidants, prevents memory loss and so on, this only applies for dark chocolate, not milk or added sugar (sorry for any disappointment!). It can also give you an orgasm if you eat enough of it. You would have to eat 563 grams of chocolate at once to achieve as much dopamine for an orgasm. I would love to try that out if there is a way to concentrate a high dose of chocolate pressed in a small amount. Eating 563 grams of chocolate at once seems impossible, even for the real chocoholics out there… but nothing is impossible…
Me, I have my own relationship with chocolate, it is my comfort food for whenever I feel sad. It lifts my mood and makes me feel better. I do not need a high percentage of cacao and I definitely never thought to snort it.
Caocao snorting started off as a joke by Belgian Chocolatiers Dominique Persoone. In 2007, his team were ask to cater at the surprise party for The Rolling Stones. So, they designed a dessert with raspberry and chocolate with a little twist. Instead of eating the chocolate he let his guests snort the chocolate with his self-invented chocolate shooter. Snorting cacao wasn’t intended to get people high, however to experience a new way of tasting chocolate. High-end restaurants started to adopt this way of chocolate tasting too.
How it evolved into cacao rave parties I do not know, but according to experts, when you eat raw cacao you get a surge of endorphins (a type of hormone produced by the body that reduces pain), it increases your awareness and fills your body with feelings of euphoria. Snorting it through the nose gives one an instant high. After the feeling of euphoria, the muscles relax. Cacao is known for deepening the feelings experienced when listening to music, making it is a legit party drug and one of the greatest food in the world.
Other experts claim that it is all in the head and what high people feel is a phantom high. Phantom or not, it is a healthier way to get high and the only drug I may feel comfortable to try.
Cacaoine could be the fastest growing recreation drugs, it is easy to obtain and it is cheaper than normal hard drugs, and on the plus side this drug actually has some health benefits. This doesn’t mean that we should all start snorting cocaoine on a monday morning before work because like all good things there are negative side effects too. People have stated that raw cacao may be an extremely addictive substance (much like coffee). Cacao acts like a stimulant that could cause sleeping problems and it can lead to depression, mood swings, nightmares and paranoia when used regularly for a long time. In Murica the FDA placed a warning on snorting of cacao because it promotes drug use…?
To make sure I don’t get your brokeass in trouble when snorting cacao, I will use my nose as guinea pig and try it out this weekend. Subscribe and follow me on my social network (see sidebar) for an update
