This is not raw cacao but I've been drinking raw cacao powder tea. I boiled it, I guess that defeats the purpose of buying it raw. I took two tablespoons in hot boiling water and 4 hours later another 2 tablespoons in hot boiling water, I was at work I felt happy and energetic, pretty normal actually. I didn't feel spaced out at all. But then again I did boil it into a tea and I also drank ginger tea with it. I'm drinking the chocolate because of a cough and I didn't want to cough at work. I read that chocolate has theobromine which has proven more effective than codeine in studies to suppress a cough. :) Also I was worried about the caffeine because I'm super sensitive to caffeine, I came home and slept like a baby. But then again my raw cacao powder is about a year old, I don't know if that diminishes the caffeine content.
