Known as the “food of the gods” by the ancient Mayan culture, cacao was thought to be a sacred and medicinal food. While chocolate has been consumed and revered and desired for over 3,000 years, no one knows for sure where Theobroma cacao, the tree where chocolate comes from, specifically originated. Evidence suggests that the Amazon River Basin or Venezuela might be where the Olmecs or perhaps the Maya came across it and took it north.71 Depending on which Mesoamerican historical linguistics’ Nahuatl etymology dictionary is used, the word chocolate comes from the Nahuatl word /chikolatl/ which meant “chocolate beverage.”72 Cacao was seen as a sacred plant elder by nature-based cultures in Mesoamerica. Considered a medicine, cacao was treated with respect and used in ceremonies and rituals. The ancient mythology of cacao tells the story of its ability to aid humans in reconnecting to the natural world: “When mankind gets out of harmony with the natural world, chocolate comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts and reestablish the balance.”74 Medicinally, it was commonly used for seizures, fevers, dysentery, digestive problems, and skin problems.71 During wedding ceremonies, cacao beans were often exchanged between the bride and groom as cacao was such an important part of their lives, believed to be a plant of the gods.73 Cacao naturally contains theobromine and a small amount of caffeine. It can be stimulating to the central nervous system.75 We invite you to consume cacao responsibly and with intent.
