Cacao Uses: A Dosage Guide

Delve into the sacred world of Ceremonial Cacao with insights from Georgia & Elyse, Reiki Master Cacao Ceremonialists from Melbourne.

Understanding Your Cacao Dosage

Embark on your Cacao journey with a respectful start. A ceremonial dose, 1.5oz (42.5g), is a good beginning, adjusting for body weight and dietary habits. If you're a coffee fan, we gently recommend discovering how Cacao's gentle stimulation can replace coffee on the days you choose to sit with Cacao, enhancing focus and nutrition.

Optimal Timing for Cacao Consumption

Evening doses may affect sleep patterns, so gauge your body’s reaction. The energy from Cacao can blend with your spirit quickly, peaking within 45 minutes on an empty stomach.

Consider splitting your daily dose for sustained focus and creativity, especially if integrating Cacao into work or leisure activities. Remember, there is a maximum dose of 60g in one single day - please do not exceed this.

Hydration Is Key

As Cacao is a diuretic, drink water during your ceremonies to prevent dehydration and potential headaches.
