CBD oil has been found to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antipsychotic properties, which makes it a medicine that may be used to treat these more serious conditions.
The Copaiba tree, located in the Amazon jungle basin grows to over 100 feet tall and has red fruit and yellow flowers. The copaiba essential oil is distilled from the resin of the tree which can produce up to 12 gallons in a single season.
What is Cannabidiol or CBD Oil?
BCP is found in the cannabis plant, and it affects CB2 receptors when higher amounts are present. At lower levels, it can be found naturally in several essential oils including copaiba. Unlike CB1 receptors, this interaction with CB2s doesn’t cause a “high” response. Instead, it effectively interacts with the CB2 receptors found in the immune system to help reduce inflammation and provide relief from pain.
BCP, which is found in Copaiba essential oil, has been found to help even more conditions when compared to CBD oil. For those seeking immune system support and oral health benefits, BCP may be just what you’ve been looking for. This oil can also be used topically to clear the skin and reduce blemishes, and when ingested can have positive effects on your internal health as well.
Copaiba oil has been used for hundreds of years throughout South America for physical and spiritual healing and is very common to find in most markets.
Instead, doTERRA has gone to great lengths to educate its distributors (wellness consultants) both about the medical and legal issues surrounding CBD oil. On its website in a post modestly titled Everything You Need to Know About CBD, doTERRA provides a part-medical part-legal treatise, complete with embedded video, a PowerPoint presentation, and 24 footnotes to medical journals and federal laws. Its thoroughness means that it is a beast to digest if you did not double major in pre-med and pre-law, but doTERRA makes some compelling points about the current unsettled state of CBD.
Young Living is aware of these potential legal issues with the current state of CBD, and it has taken proactive steps to mitigate potential negative effects. In its acquisition of Colorado-based Nature’s Ultra that produces 0.0% CBD oil (no THC content), Young Living has opted to keep Nature’s Ultra as a separate operating company rather than integrating its operations within Young Living. Nature’s Ultra’s CBD oils can be purchased with Young Living’s essential oils blended into its products rather than the other way around.
On the legal side, doTERRA takes a conservative approach:
Finally, in good competitive market fashion, doTERRA educates its distributors that it already has a superior product to CBD oil called Copaiba oil:
Recently I wrote about the two dominant global MLM essential oil companies based in Utah: Young Living and doTERRA. Last month Young Living announced it is entering the CBD oil market, but doTERRA publicly stated on its website that it will not (yet) follow suit, even though everyone and their dog are clamoring for CBD oil and CBD oil-derived products. doTERRA only hints that it may produce CBD oil if it can be produced according to doTERRA’s rigorous standards for its products, but “Right now, it is not possible to deliver a CBD oil that meets [doTERRA’s] CPTG ® standards.”
