Chocolate Spectrum owner Valerie Herskowitz’s son Blake, a 27-year old with Autism and employee of The Chocolate Spectrum, has spent many years dealing with severe anxiety. Though he takes pharmaceutical medications, he still has periodic outbursts resulting in self-injurious behavior. Herskowitz began researching the benefits of CBD and started incorporating small doses when Blake was suffering significant attacks.
After just a small dose, Blake’s anxiety would dissipate within 15 minutes. The difference was so drastic that Herskowitz repeated the CBD treatment another dozen or so times before being convinced that it was the CBD that was helping her son regain his composure.
Convinced of the effectiveness of CBD, Herskowitz decided to take courses from Ecole Chocolat in cannabinoid infused chocolate-making and is now introducing CBDulce.
The Chocolate Spectrum’s CBDulce products (dulce means “sweet” in Spanish), is available both in the physical shop in Jupiter, Florida as well as in the Chocolate Spectrum’s online store, shopthechocolatespectrum.com
The Chocolate Spectrum’s first product in the CBDulce line is a box of 9 chocolates with 15 mg of pure CBD in each chocolate. The chocolates are embellished with a hemp leaf on each one. These are also available in 4 pieces. The Introductory price is $24.99 for the 9 piece box and $24.99 for two boxes of the 4 piece.
