New years bring new ways of getting high and the fact that it is almost 6 months into 2016 its way past time for the year to get its own new intoxication trend.
Now, word out of Berlin comes on just that, a new trend for ravers to “expand” and “experience” (or whatever) and it is…wait for it…Cocao Powder. That’s right, the once heralded super food is now the drug of choice by a faction of Berliners, specifically those attending the city’s Lucid event. According to its promoter the powder “amplifies” the effects of electronic music and is either dropped in drinks or ingested in pill form.
Cacao is known to raise serotonin levels and stimulate endorphins, creating a feeling of bliss much like MDMA.
