This Cannabinoid-Infused Chocolate Could Be the Next Trend in Treating Anxiety

Though never meant to replace treatment or care by a licensed professional, weed is quickly becoming a method women are using to calm down and relax. The latest delicious way to soothe anxiety is in the same vein, but the creators insist it’s not pot — so much so that it’s literally called “Not Pot.” Rather, it’s cannabinoid-infused chocolate, and it’s delicious.


Each little heart of chocolate in “Not Pot” has cannabidiol (CBD), which is known for its anti-anxiety effects but will not get you high, as it’s not a psychoactive cannabinoid. Each heart has a very light dose of two milligrams, and it’s recommended to eat one daily to let the effects build over time. They’re a bit pricey — it costs $30 for a 30-day supply or $27 for a subscription — but hey, you’re pretty much buying drugged-up chocolate that will bust your anxiety, so a buck a day isn’t a bad trade-off.

CBD has been surging in popularity over recent years, which the Huffington Post claims is due to the destigmatizing effect of its “non-euphoric” benefits — though, as HuffPo highlights, “the idea that using medication to feel good is not appropriate… seems to almost uniquely apply to cannabis.” Nonetheless, it’s been found to improve quality of life for those who have conditions such as PTSD, cancer, epilepsy, or anxiety.

Other than CBD, the hearts include cacao (hello, antioxidants!), ashwagandha (a herb often used in Eastern medicine), and maple sugar (which won’t cause a terrible sugar crash). All of that sounds lovely, but really — only one tiny heart a day? POPSUGAR’s Dominique Astornio said that she and her fellow editor needed three chocolate hearts to feel any effect, but that they were “exceptionally relaxing.” One reviewer on the brand’s site saying that they “felt calmer in a week’s time.”

What a wonderful world we live in.

Would you try “Not Pot”? Let us know @BritandCo.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
