You may have heard about CBD oil recently due to its rising popularity as a way to treat an array of ailments. CBD oil, or cannabidiol, is extracted from the flowers and buds of cannabis plants and is legal in all locations that allow medicinal cannabis use.
Cannabidiol is a naturally occurring chemical in the cannabis plant. There are three types of cannabinoids, and these include CBD, THC, and BCP.
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.
THC is a naturally occurring chemical in the cannabis plant. It is probably best known to provide users with the psychoactive “high” response sought from marijuana as it interacts with CB1 receptors in the brain, but that is not THC’s only use. THC can also help to regulate our sleep patterns, mood, memory, and appetite.
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.
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.
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.
When you compare the two oils side by side, you will find that they each have their own distinct benefits. Copaiba oil offers a much less expensive option over CBD oil, and the risk of trace amounts of THC in the oil simply isn’t there. This is because the oil is not actually derived from the cannabis plant, unlike CBD oil, so it provides a safe and effective cannabis-free option.
CBD oil comes from hemp, which is a part of the cannabis plant, so there is a chance that it will have trace amounts of THC even when not intended to. However, CBD oil is still legal in the United States because it does not offer you the high, but instead acts as an alternative form of natural medicine.
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.
If you are looking for an alternative to traditional medicine, and want to help support your many body systems without the fear of trace amounts of THC, then Copaiba oil is a cost-effective and safe solution. You will not receive a false positive on any drug test, so you can rest assured that conditions can be managed without risking career or future. Copaiba oil is not known to have any side effects, and it is completely legal to use in all fifty states.
