Did you know that there is an essential oil that is similar to cannabis? And it’s legal in all 50 states! As we know, the compound that makes cannabis therapeutic is the beta-caryophyllene and its level in CBD is 35%! However, Copaiba essential oil possesses 55% of beta-caryophyllene! That makes Copaiba essential oil one of the most powerful natural substances to deal with various health issues.
Copaiba essential oil is a unique blend of four different species. It is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree which can grow upwards of more than 100 feet and can be found in tropical South America. Copaiba oil is widely used in cosmetic products including soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes.
Since the 16th century, copaiba essential oil has been utilized in traditional health practices by the natives of north and northeastern Brazil. Did you know that Copaiba is potentially the highest anti-inflammatory substance known. It has greater action than Ibuprofen or even Cortisone – but with NO SIDE EFFECTS?
Copaiba Essential Oil Benefits
Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings and it can be applied to the skin to promote a clear, smooth complexion. Copaiba essential oil comes with a wide range of other supportive qualities including: nervous system, cellular support, cardiovascular health, digestive health, emotional balancing, immune support, inflammatory response, respiratory system and reducing neuronal excitability.
The most prevalent compound in Copaiba is the cannabinoid beta-caryophyllene (BCP). In fact our Copaiba essential oil contains 60% beta-caryophyllene. Caryophyllene may be neuro-protective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits. It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health. There are many research papers indicating the anti-inflammatory benefits of copaiba. Cancer is an inflammatory process in the body, so any natural compound that can arrest or slow this process becomes a welcome ally.
Copaiba’s natural anti-inflammatory properties means that it may reduce the inflammatory processes by which cancer can spread.
In 2008, German researchers discovered that beta-caryophyllene also acts as a cannabinoid by binding to cannabinoid pathways in the body. Although some compounds like THC activate both cannabinoid pathways — CB1 and CB2 receptors — beta-caryophyllene specifically targets the CB2 receptor/works on the CB2 cannabinoid pathway, which does not produce a high feeling associated with marijuana use (which is the CB1 receptor).
