Lucia at Healing Hands would like to invite you to this very special ceremony - The Sacred Plants - Cacao & CBD Ceremony.
They are more than just a cultural pairing of ingredients, cacao and cannabis also share a similar euphoria-inducing quality. Clearly, Cacao and Cannabis were meant to be!
Cacao contains a compound called anandamide that mimics the psychoactive effects of THC.
Taking Cannabis oil along with Cacao may potentiate the effects of both THC and CBD, as fats have been found to double or triple the exposure of cannabinoids to subjects in animal studies.
Personally I have found Cacao & CBD an extremely powerful healing tool on my own journey and would love to share this with you in ceremony.
Come and join us on this Sacred Plants Cacao Ceremony!

So what is Cacao?
Cacao is a powerful plant medicine that has been used ceremonially for thousands of years across Central and South America. It's active ingredient - Theobromine, is translated as 'Food of the Gods', and the people of ancient Meso-America attributed a sacred status to Cacao and would drink it ceremonially to commune with their gods. The Maya believed that the ka'kau' was discovered by the gods in a mountain that also contained other delectable foods. According to Mayan Mythology Hunahpú gave Cacao to the Maya after humans were created from maize by the divine grandmother goddess Ixmucané. The word Cacao originated from the Maya word Ka'kau', as well as the Maya words Chocol’ha, and the verb chokola'j " to drink chocolate together.
We would like to make it clear that Cacao is NOT a drug.
So what is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp/cannabis. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for multiple reasons.
CBD oil is a cannabis oil that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) contained within it. The products we use are extracts which are derived from industrial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or plainly “hemp extracts” since they typically contain much more than just CBD. Again, cannabis doesn’t mean marijuana but is the genus name and general umbrella term which all forms of marijuana and hemp fall under. The form of cannabis we use for our CBD in ceremony is industrial hemp; we do not sell marijuana.
We would like to make it clear that CBD is NOT a drug and is now legal in Guernsey.
What is a Cacao Ceremony?
What we offer is a modern day Cacao ceremony to commune with our inner 'god/goddess.' We drink Cacao in ceremony to reconnect with our deep inner guidance. Using guided meditation we journey deep within to discover more about ourselves, release negative blockages and find peace and clarity. Cacao doesn’t take you out of your body, and is not psycho-active but some people can have clear visions. It all depends on an individuals extra sensory perception, and how cacao works best with you.
A Cacao Ceremony gives us time for ourselves in a hectic and stressful world. It is the perfect space to switch off the outside chaos and journey into the silence, so that we can become clearer of who we are, where we are going, and the opportunities available to us.
Whether you are looking for help shifting an emotional blockage, needing to let go of a past experience, dissolve negative energy, find some clarity on your future and who you are meant to be or you simply want to lift your spirits and relax, these ceremonies can provide the focus you need to re-align with who you really are, and get back on track.
What are the recommended DO's & DONT's?
- Please make me aware if you are on ANY medication or have any health issues that may effect your time with Cacao
- Strictly No Coffee or Caffeine based drinks or drugs for the whole day (if you do you'll get the migraine from hell)
- No Food or Drinks (other than water) for at least 2-4 hours prior to the Cacao Ceremony, the less your stomach has in it, the better the Cacao can work, so if you can fast for longer then please do!
- You cannot leave early, you have to stay for the entire ceremony as the circle must be opened & closed with everyone in it
- Tickets are not refundable, but are transferable to another person for the same ceremony if you cannot make it.

Just remember - The best investment you will ever make in life will be on yourself! I look forward to spending this special time with those who are meant to be...
