Get to Know Copaiba Essential Oil

Our Copaiba Essential Oil springs from the abundant Copaiba trees (Copaifera Langsdorfii) native to Brazil. The trees are tapped to extract their oil-rich resin, which is then harvested and processed in batches. This oil-resin undergoes steam distillation to produce the potent Copaiba Oil, valued for its medicinal and aromatherapeutic properties.

Copaiba reigns as the preferred pain reliever in Brazil and is gaining recognition beyond Central and South America due to the resurgence of natural health remedies and ancient medicinal practices. Amazonian tribes have harnessed the healing power of Copaiba tree oil-resin for centuries.

The Mechanism Behind the Magic

Copaiba Essential Oil delivers pain relief and anti-inflammatory aid similar to cannabinoids but without THC or CBD. Copaiba oil contains a high concentration of beta-caryophyllene (BCP), a type of terpene that directly binds to CB2 receptors, inducing rapid and powerful pain-relieving properties.

Copaiba Oil has been compared to CBD for its restorative properties. However, it's important to clarify thatCopaiba does not contain cannabinoids. In fact, it's impossible to extract a cannabinoid using steam distillation. That's why, even our cannabis essential oil contains zero cannabinoids. 

This interaction with the CB2 receptors is what contributes to both Copaiba's and Cannabis's reliability for pain relief. The BCP terpene connects with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is responsible for maintaining balance across all bodily systems. The ECS influences pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune response, and reproductive function.

Understanding Terpenes

Copaiba's main component is beta-caryophyllene (BCP), a terpene, which can interact with CB2 receptors,similar to how certain cannabinoids do, but without any psychoactive effects.

The stimulation of CB2 receptors by Copaiba Essential Oil often results in pain relief, insomnia alleviation, increased appetite, stress reduction, and euphoria without the "high".

This is due to its content of beta-caryophyllene, a primary sesquiterpene present in black pepper, cloves, hops, rosemary, and Copaiba. Utilizing Copaiba Essential Oil, or any essential oil rich in beta-caryophyllene, activates the ECS without any psychotropic effects! Hooray!
