Question - Does anyone know why the finely ground powder is so much more efficient than the fresh leaves or the tea?
It seems I need very little mixed in with the cocoa to help with the pain. I'm using 1/2 tsp right now which is a good 4-5 hours of pain relief.
And I finally experienced constipation. Since the powder is so fine, I can't use a strainer. It dissolves completely in hot water like the cocoa powder.
I didn't think about the fact I was consuming the actual leaf particles. When I used fresh leaves, I spit out the material after it turned to a paste.
