It’s time to talk about COPAIBA 💫 Did you know that cannabis plants are NOT the only source of cannabinoids?
The news here in Europe has been full of discussion about balancing the potential health benefits of plant cannabinoids with the risks posed by the psychoactive effects of cannabis extracts and the need to regulate the trade.
Enter copaiba essential oil, distilled from protected copaifera trees in S. American rainforests. Copaiba is extremely high in beta-caryophyllene, a powerful phytocannabinoid compound which is selectively active on CB2 receptors and therefore completely spares the psychoactive receptors which are activated by other cannabinoids.
The scientific literature on copaiba and beta-carophyllene is growing rapidly and I highly recommend doing a search on Pub Med to learn about some of the astonishing discoveries ✨🙌
This is an oil with limitless uses, but here are a few ideas:
🌿 Add 1-3 drops to drinking water daily (adults) to promote healthy levels of inflammation
🌿 Use a drop under your tongue (adults) to support your immune system when needed
🌿 Massage with carrier oil to soothe occasional aches and pains
🌿 Add to skin care serums/creams to promote glowing skin
🌿 Drink in water (adults) or apply with carrier oil to the abdomen to support the digestive system
🌿 Diffuse with citrus oils and/or other tree oils to lift a low mood or reduce anxious feelings
🌿 Apply a drop to the roof of the mouth to support neurological function
There are SO many incredible testimonies about this essential oil — I’d love to hear your stories in the comments below! ✨🌱
