Ceremonial Dosage

If you are interested in taking a full Ceremonial Dose, we recommend starting with an Everyday Dose 4-5 times, increasing the dose at your own pace and comfort. The full Ceremonial Dose is very strong and can cause a headache and nausea if you are not used to ceremonial cacao. Approach Ceremonial Grade Cacao with awareness and respect of your own body.


- Hydrate! Drink plenty of water before and after consuming cacao

- Eat a liight meal or snack before

- Take small sips of your cacao

Pay attention to what your body is telling you.
