More than 2x the pain-relieving compounds at 1/4 the price.
Copaiba resin has been used for centuries by inhabitants of the Amazon rainforest for pain relief, to treat wounds and other medicinal purposes.
Copaiba essential oil contains a high concentration of BCP (appoximately60%). What is BCP and why is this important? Let’s compare the BCP contained in Copaiba essential oil with CBD oil.
BCP vs. CBD
- The terpene present in CBD oil is cannabidiol. The terpene present in Copaiba oil is beta-caryophyllene.
- CBD oil made from hemp contains 2-4% cannabidiol and CBD oil made from marijuana has up to 30% cannabidiol.
- Copaiba essential oil contains 60% of the terpene beta-caryophyllene.
- CB1 receptors are located in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs. These receptors are what THC in marijuana binds to that creates the psychoactive effects. CB2 receptors reside mostly in the other body structures and the immune system. Both CBD and the beta-caryophyllene found in Copaiba oil bind with CB2 receptors. However, CBD oil binds indirectly with these receptors while beta-caryophyllene binds directly with CB2 receptors.
- CBD oil helps neurological issues, pain and more by indirectly interacting with CB2 receptors in the body. BCP interacts directly with CB2 receptors and helps to improve immunity, reduce inflammation, and relieve certain types of pain.
- CBD oil has 2-30% terpenes. Copaiba essential oil has 60% terpenes.
- Cost comparison- CBD oil costs approximately $50 for a 1oz bottle. (The mg of cannabinoids vary). Copaiba essential oil costs $19 for a 1oz bottle. For $59 you can buy a 4oz bottle of Copaiba essential oil, and Copaiba essential has at least 2x the active terpenes. Since most CBD oil made in the US is made from hemp, Copaiba essential oil has many times the terpenes of CBD oil.
