CBD vs Copaiba oil–What’s the difference?
By Rachel dōTERRA Wellness Advocate
DōTERRA added Copaiba essential oil last fall and we are EXCITED to have this oil in our arsenal because it is powerful for our brains and nervous systems. I’m excited to share more about this oil with you.
CBD oil has been a hot topic lately as an alternative to drugs.There are a lot of questions about CBD vs Copaiba oil so I will break down the differences in an easy-to-understand way.
There’s also a lot of controversy, and even more opinions, these days about medical marijuana, CBD oil and products that contain THC so let’s start with some definitions….
Cannabinoids: Any chemical compound that affects one or both cannabinoid receptors in the human body, CB1 or CB2. Some cannabinoids are legal (CBD and those found in essential oils) and some, like THC from cannabis/marijuana, are not …
Here are 3 types of Cannabinoids:
CBD: CBD, or CannaBiDiol, is a naturally occurring component of the cannabis and hemp plants. CBD made from hemp has a low concentration around 2-4%. If derived from cannabis/marijuana CBD has a higher concentration around 5-30%. All CBD extractions contain some amount of THC (the part of the plant that makes you feel high) though some are low enough to be legal in our country. CBD is often said to be legal in all 50 states but that is controversial. Benefits include pain relief, reduces anxiety, effective against cancer, treats seizures and other neurological issues, prevention of diabetes through lower insulin levels and promotes cardiovascular health. This is the power of cannabinoids! (source)
THC: THC, or TetraHydroCannabinol, is also a naturally occurring compound in the cannabis plant. This is the part of the plant that makes people feel high when they smoke marijuana or use products that contain THC. Supplements that contain THC are only legal in a few states. THC resembles another cannabinoid naturally produced in our brains, anandamide, which regulates our mood, sleep, memory, and appetite. (source) Hence the reason THC makes you relaxed … and hungry.
BCP: BCP, or Beta-CaryoPhyllene, is the dietary cannabinoid found in doTERRA’s Copaiba oil. Not only is it in Copaiba essential oil it’s in doTERRA’s in very high amounts – 60%!!! While this is a different type of cannabinoid than CBD it directly affects the same CB2 receptors in amazing ways and is present in a much higher amount. It’s also found in lower levels in other essential oils, in lower amounts, like Black Pepper and Melissa.
What are cannabinoid receptors?
We all have cannabinoid receptors in our bodies and they are super important. They are found all over the body, in the brain, organs, tissues, glands and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis. We have two different types of receptors – CB1 and CB2.
CB1, predominantly present in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs; and CB2, predominantly found in the immune system and its associated structures. Many tissues contain both CB1 and CB2 receptors, each linked to a different action. (source)
The CB1 receptors are the ones that THC interacts with and causes psychotropic effects.
The CB2 receptors are the ones that do not make you “high” when affected. These are the target when using CBD oil and Copaiba essential oil. CBD actually indirectly interacts with CB2 receptors while the main constituent of Copaiba interacts directly. CB2 receptors are found mostly in the immune system, and they seem to reduce inflammation and certain kinds of pain.
CBD vs Copaiba oil …..
THC comes from the cannabis or hemp plants. It is completely illegal in about half the US and legal for at least medical purposes in the other half.
CBD oil from hemp contains only trace amounts of THC and is legal in all 50 states. It does not make you high but it does help with neurological issues, pain and more by indirectly interacting with CB2 receptors in the body.
BCP, caryophyllene, is a cannabinoid found in very high levels in dōTERRA's
Copaiba and it interacts DIRECTLY with CB2 receptors. When taken internally, the BCP in Copaiba possesses strong antioxidant properties, promotes healthy cellular function, may help support immune function while supporting overall circulatory health, and may help support the health of the gastrointestinal tract and colon. Additional research has shown that Copaiba essential oil (with all its constituents) may help keep the mouth, teeth, and gums clean and healthy looking. Topically applied Copaiba oil may also help keep the skin clean and clear while helping to reduce the appearance of blemishes. Another interesting experimental research study found that Copaiba taken internally may help to support uterine health and ease menstruation.*

Maintaining a positive mood and attitude can be very challenging at times. Life can get pretty stressful, especially when trying to multitask. Chances are you are familiar with managing several tasks at once. In today’s fast-paced environment, we often experience negative moods such as stress, discouragement, and fatigue.

Helichrysum is a powerful oil for people and our pets. It is great to help stop bleeding, cuts and bruises. I won't be without this oil for myself, grandchildren and pets. Helichrysum is also used to prevent the signs of aging by rejuvenating the skin and can help reduce the appearance of blemishes. It promotes a glowing, youthful complexion. Besides that it smells great so is wonderful for diffusing.
Native to both Russia and Canada, the Siberian fir tree is a tall evergreen conifer. It is already being used in some familiar blends doTERRA offers like the Purify Cleansing Blend, where it is used to purify the air and protect against environmental threats. The scent also often reminds people of the Christmas season. If you’re familiar with the doTERRA Holiday Joy blend, you are probably already familiar with Siberian Fir—it’s the first ingredient on the bottle.
To create this refreshing and calming essential oil, harvesters collect the needles and twigs. Both components are then steam distilled. Read more at the link below

Not only is doTERRA On Guard Protective Blend a proprietary mix of powerful essential oils, but the essential oils used in the doTERRA On Guard blend are CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®. This means that the oils that make up doTERRA On Guard have been put through the CPTG® protocol. doTERRA puts each batch of essential oils through this protocol to be thoroughly tested and to determine the purity of each essential oil. If the essential oil batch is found pure, then the oils are then sold as single oils or blends, like doTERRA On Guard, so that individuals around the world can experience their benefits.
doTERRA places strong emphasis on producing pure oils because they know that pure oils are strong and effective.
