What Makes Our Cacao Ceremonial-Grade

Ceremonial cacao refers to the quality and source of the beans, the process of making the cacao, and the intentions and ingredients that go into it. Our cacao is:

  • Respected as a medicine
  • Comes from native seeds from local heirloom nurseries
  • Organically grown in agroforestry projects, primarily on family farms averaging 2 acres in size
  • Grown in a cooperative model, paying an average of 40-220% above the commodity price, which provides better livelihood for farmers and communities
  • Purchased directly and handcrafted at our factory in northern California
  • Blessed throughout the entire making process with love and intention for healing
  • Lightly roasted, maintaining the healthy beneficial compounds of the cacao beans. This allows one to access expanded states of consciousness and increased vitality levels by connecting with the beneficial compounds of high quality cacao
  • Consumed intentionally with ritual, often to connect more deeply with yourself and others.

Preparing Your Cacao

  • Step 1

    Take a handful of cacao discs (use 20-25 discs, depending on your desired dosage).

  • Step 2

    Combine with 1 cup of 180°F liquid (water, herbal tea or nut milk).

  • Step 3

    Whisk or blend for 15 seconds. Optionally add sweetener (try maple syrup or raw honey).

    Great variety

    I wanted to be able to try different ones out prior to purchasing larger sized bags. I use the information from the website to determine which one I should take at the time. The mystical mushroom and Thriving Tanzania have been my favorites. I really have enjoyed all of them but the taste of the Oaxacon spice wasn’t the best for me. I recommend anyone new to cacao to give this kit a try or if you are just wanting to try different flavors. It’s totally worth it.

    very smooth

    I've certainly been enjoying the cacao - I make it, do a ceremony, and sit quietly on my porch to drink it.

    Helping others in their Grief

    My husband and I got Mystical Mushroom and Tantric Rose Blossom after our daughter died. It has lifted our mood and given us energy and lightheartedness. We use it on days where we know we need a little extra support, like returning back at work, our daughter’s memorial, and monthly anniversaries of her passing. If it wasn’t for Ceremonial Cacao I don’t think we would’ve been able to be so social and sharing of our grief journey with our close family and friends. It has allowed us to be honest with ourselves and others about how we are feeling without isolation and fear of rejection. This sample kit is what I gift to my loss mom friends who are new in their grief. It is a wonderful start to feeling like yourself again—hopeful, social, kind.

    Awesome Cacao

    The aroma and taste of the cacao was awesome! I am somewhat new to the cacao world and so experimenting with different varieties and tastes. This was definitely a good choice to try out. Will be trying other varieties as well.

    LOVE this cacao!

    I am a complete chocoholic and very picky about my cacao as I prefer it completely unsweetened. This stuff really is the best. I’m only giving four stars because I wish the pure sampler pack came with all the pure cacao flavors! I would really like to try Connected Columbia, and then we will definitely be ordering the 5 pound bags for daily drinking. My husband much prefers this to coffee and gets better sustained energy.

    Amazing Product!!!

    I have fallen in love again...with CACAO! My first real experience with coca was on a trip to Paris, after that I could never drink what we think is hot chocolate again. So I learned to make my own from scratch, but this Ceremony Cacao is on a whole other level. Ora has captured the spirit of the plant medicine and now I will never drink another Cacao again. Thank you for bringing such an amazing product to life in this country!

Is Your Cacao Tested for Heavy Metals?

Our cacao has been lab tested for safety and meets comprehensive EU standards for absence of heavy metals. In particular all our cacao tests below detectable thresholds for lead, and all our cacao tests below government mandated limits for cadmium. We actually test for 68 different heavy metals, but our focus here is on lead and cadmium as those are of most public discussion.

So why is our cacao so much safer than other chocolate products out there? 

Let’s look at cadmium specifically. Cadmium uptake is dependent on many variables, including cacao genotype, cacao tree age, and other trace metals present in the soil. Notably, the more depleted the soil is of other beneficial minerals such such as Zn, Ca, Mg, and Mn, and the younger the trees are, the higher the Cadmium uptake is. Because our cacao sourcing is focused more on quality than quantity, it is not farmed as intensively as the majority of global monoculture cacao production. Rather, our trees tend to be older and within polyculture agroforestry systems with rich soils - all factors that reduce cadmium uptake. The permaculture practices that our farmers use also regularly replenish the soils. So really, cadmium uptake has a substantial amount to do with farm management practices.

It’s also interesting to note that cadmium is first accumulated in leaves, then cacao pod shells, then cacao beans. Proper handling and shelling of cacao beans can remove the husk, which has a higher concentration than the edible part, the bean. We take great care in our cracking and winnowing process to remove as much shell as possible, which also reduces cadmium concentration in the final product. With our recent factory upgrade, we actually acquired a cracker and winnower that is a state of the art German design, used in the chocolate industry for over fifty years! This results in the cleanest cacao nibs possible.

Are there any Contradindications?

We believe cacao has potential as a holistic therapy for depression, and we have encountered the effects of cacao during depressive episodes to be uplifting and stabilizing. It is our sincere hope that someday cacao could become a part of a clinically proven method for treating depression naturally, or as a method for assisting people in reducing their dependence on powerful pharmaceuticals. 

Because cacao is contraindicated with SSRIs, many people struggling with depression cannot take cacao because of the SSRI’s they are medicating with. There is potential that people may be able to partially reduce their SSRI medication intake and supplement with ceremonial cacao, however medical studies on this need to be done to establish a verifiable protocol. If you are a medical practitioner and would like to collaborate with us on such a study, please let us know! Because pharmaceutical SSRIs have many side effects and ceremonial cacao is beneficial in so many other ways, we are hopeful that such a protocol would greatly benefit the lives of many people struggling with depression and other mood disorders.

What Minerals Does Cacao Have?

Consuming cacao can replenish minerals vital to our body. Magnesium is chronically deficient in the majority of western diets, and cacao is the highest naturally occurring source. Magnesium is used in all key brain functions, especially memory and concentration. It is also beneficial for the function of the heart, acting to relax blood vessels and decrease strain. Besides magnesium, cacao is also the highest naturally occurring source of chromium, and also high in copper, calcium, manganese, zinc, sulfur, iron, and phosphorus.

How Does Cacao Affect Mood?

Many ceremonial cacao lovers report a notable impact on their mood. There is substantial science that explains why ceremonial cacao is so beneficial. Pure cacao contains beneficial neurotransmitters and neuro-modulators already present in our brain. It also contains reuptake inhibitors that block the pathways that our bodies normally use to break down and recycle these beneficial mood altering molecules, so the good mood lasts for longer. In the long term, regularly working with ceremonial cacao can have therapeutic health benefits, including creating new neural pathways that change our daily experience to include more joy, love, and connection.

Top Molecules in Cacao

Some of the top mood altering molecules in cacao include:

Anandamide is commonly referred to as the bliss molecule, and is associated with the runner’s high effect. It is actually the first endocannabinoid to be discovered, and it is well known for moderating pain. Cacao also has N-linoleoylethanolamine, which is the reuptake inhibitor for anandamide.

Phenylethylamine (PEA) - Helps with excitement, alertness, attention. Gives the perception of time slowing down.

Norepinephrine is commonly referred to as the joy molecule. It is both a neurotransmitter and a hormone,

Serotonin - Helps with wellbeing, and creates resistance to stress. Cacao also has MOA inhibitors that inhibit reuptake of serotonin.

Dopamine - Gives feelings of motivation and pleasure. Cacao also has MOA inhibitors that inhibit reuptake of dopamine.

Due to these molecules and many others, when you drink ceremonial cacao you may feel expansive, blissful, connected to self and/or others, inspired, connected to your intuition & vision, connected to spirit, grounded, emotions arise, and the movement of stuck energy. You can also experience increased blood flow, mood elevation, and a more expanded state of consciousness. Cacao is a vasodilator, meaning your blood vessels and muscular systems relax. When working with ceremonial doses of cacao, blood flow can increase by up to 30%, meaning that more blood (life force energy) is moving through your body and nourishing all of your systems.



Our hearts have been opened and our lives have been transformed through intimate contact with cacao, one of nature’s greatest healing medicines. We hope in our relationship with you, you will receive many gems of wisdom compiled from countless hours in the field, that we hope will deepen your practice, connection and life.
