Does ceremonial cacao contain caffeine?

Ceremonial cacao contains only trace amounts of natural caffeine.

Theobromine is the primary stimulant found in cacao, and while it is structurally similar to caffeine, its effects on the body are milder. Theobromine is known to provide a gentle and sustained energy lift without the jittery or anxious sensations often associated with caffeine. 

The amount of theobromine in ceremonial cacao is relatively low, making it a suitable option for those who are sensitive to caffeine or seeking a more gentle and heart-opening experience. However, it is essential to consider individual sensitivities and responses, and it’s always wise to start with a smaller amount of ceremonial cacao to gauge your body’s reaction.
