Copaiba CBD

Copaiba doTERRA essential oil.

The essential oil Copaiba of doTERRA contains an important chemical component, beta-caryophyllene (BCP). This chemical can protect nerve cells and is beneficial to the cardiovascular system and the immune system. In this blog Tanja tells about the powerful effect of the Copaiba doTERRA oil.

Extraction of Copaiba

The essential oil Copaiba from dōTERRA is extracted from Copaibatrees in the Amazon rainforest. The essential oil is steam distilled from the Copaiba oleoresin, a substance made up of resin and essential oil. The collection process of the oleoresin is unique among the essential oils; it is tapped from the tree in the same way as maple syrup. The oleoresin is then steam distilled to produce the essential oil.


The endocannabinoid system

Endo means “inside”. The effect of cannabis is also called “runners high”, a blissful feeling you can get after intensive exercise. Endocannabinoids are the chemical messengers that tell your body to set various processes in motion and when to stop. They help maintain an optimal balance in the body, also known as homeostasis. Science is still investigating how all the molecular mechanisms of the ECS work.

Psychoactive THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) was first discovered in the XNUMXs. Science wanted to quickly gain knowledge about how THC works and whether our bodies can produce similar compounds. Thus, endocannabinoid molecules such as anandamide were found. The name anandamide comes from the Sanskrit word 'Ananda', which means bliss; Anandamide means bliss molecule. The ECS is active in everyone from conception to the end of life.

cannabinoid receptors

Cannabinoid receptors are found all over the body. They therefore have a wide range of functions. However, certain receptors are more concentrated in specific regions. CB1 receptors are abundant in the central nervous system. CB2 receptors are more commonly found in the endocrine system, on immune cells, in the gastrointestinal tract and in the peripheral nervous system. Many over-the-counter drugs work through the cannabinoid receptors to relieve pain, for example. Paracetamol is one of those drugs. The diversity of receptor sites shows how important endocannabinoids are for daily body function.

They help arrange:

  • Sleep
  • Appetite, Digestion, Hunger
  • Mood
  • musculoskeletal system
  • Immune function
  • Reproduction and Fertility
  • Joy of life and satisfaction
  • Ache
  • Memory
  • Temperature regulation

Copaiba for your health

When the body does not produce enough endocannabinoids or cannot regulate them properly, you are more susceptible to diseases that affect one or more of the functions mentioned above. Here we can give the body a hand by using aromatherapy. Through plant cannabinoids, as they occur in the essential oil Copaiba from doTERRA, we can support the body and promote health and wellness. 


Plant cannabinoids are powerful and have a wide range of uses for health. However, the legislation, purity and potency get in the way of these benefits. Because THC binds directly to cannabinoid receptors (CB1) on neurons in different brain regions, it causes disturbances in thought processes. Also, this substance can interfere with a person's ability to learn and perform complex tasks. THC also disrupts balance, posture, coordination and affects reaction time. Psychoactive THC works by mimicking the body's own endocannabinoids.

There is no THC in it Copaiba meaning you have no psychoactive effects and possession is completely legal.

Beta-carophyllene in Copaiba

BCP or also beta-carophyllene (as in the essential oil Copaiba) has many of the same health benefits as other cannabinoids, but without binding to the CB1 receptors in the brain, such as the THC. BCP, on the other hand, does bind to the CB2 receptors and supports healthy function of the nervous system, healthy function of the immune system and the healthy function of various organs such as kidneys and liver. It also has a relieving effect on nervous feelings.

CB2 activation is correlated with the concentration of BCPs and CBD oil consists of 35% BCP while Copaiba 55% BCP. A switch to the essential oil Copaiba can provide even more relief.

BCPs are in many other foods and even other essential oils (for example, Black Pepper), but the concentration in these products is not close to the concentration or purity as the concentration in Copaiba from doTERRA.
