CBD Oil vs Copaiba Oil – Dr. Hill and Dr. O Discuss How CBD and Copaiba Work
Dr. Hill Discusses Copaiba and Cannabinoid Benefits
UPDATE 4 FEB 2019: I have been suffering with Major Post Traumatic Depression, taking 3 drops of Copaiba oil and 3 drops of Frankincense oil every 5 hours internally in a small glass in 2 inches of water, the calmness of the mind and body is truly amazing.
SHOULDER BURSITIS: June 27 2019
Painful Bursitis Gone
The Bursitis was so painful in my right shoulder I couldn't even raise my arm above my waist.
Morning and night I put 2 drops of Frankincense and 2 drops of Copaiba oil onto my right shoulder which had the Bursitis with 2 drops of each also under my tongue and 1 drop of each on the bottom on the smooth part on the arches of each foot, the Bursitis was gone in 3 days. I said to Carole, I think my arm is getting better and said told me not to be so stupid. I cancelled my booked injection and the doc wasn't happy. I can't believe this pain has gone and I haven't applied the oils to my shoulder since.
Combine Copaiba oil with Frankincense Oil for Major PTSD. These 2 oils must go together from my personal experimenting with each oil on it's own. See the Frankincense Tab on this website.
The effective internal dose and frequency is dependent on many factors that vary widely from person to person. The necessary dose may change based on the age, size, and health status of the person, as well as their desired health benefit. When using essential oils internally, it is important to regard them with as much precaution as any other supplement. It is best to start with the lowest possible dose (1–2 drops) and then increase the dose as needed. The recommended internal dose of essential oils is 1–5 drops, depending on the oil or blend. After a certain point, taking a higher dose no longer adds benefit. If you take too much, it can even become harmful. It is better to take a smaller dose, which can be repeated every 4–6 hours as needed. In total, typically no more than 20 drops, divided into doses, should be consumed in a 24-hour period.
Start with 1 drop of Frankincense with 1 drop of Copaiba oil morning and night in 2 inches of water in a glass (never plastic) or add to a vegan capsule. if you don't mind the taste of the oils take them straight from the bottle under the tongue which gets into your blood very quickly. Also rub one drop of each oil onto the soles or the smooth parts on the bottoms of both feet twice a day as this allows the oils to enter your blood in around 20 minutes. You will only need to use a carrier oil first topically if you have sensitive skin or if you think you may have a reaction to the oils as no two humans are the same. Oils are highly concentrated, treat them as you would any medications by only taking the recommended dosage.
Not to be taken internally if you are taking blood thinning meds.
NEVER buy oils from AMAZON as the reviews state the oils are copies from China and they have been watered down and the seals are broken this is why they are so cheap. If you want to buy cheap oils take them at your own risk as they are cheap for a reason.
What Is Copaiba Essential Oil
Copaiba essential oil is derived from the resin of the copaiba tree which can grow upwards of more than 100 feet and can be found in tropical South America. Copaiba oil is widely used in cosmetic products including soaps, creams, lotions, and perfumes. Since the 16th century, copaiba essential oil has been utilized in traditional health practices by the natives of north and northeastern Brazil. Similar to Black Pepper essential oil, Copaiba can help soothe anxious feelings and it can be applied to the skin to promote a clear, smooth complexion. Taken internally, Copaiba essential oil supports the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems.* Although Copaiba does not contain psychoactive cannabinoids, the main component caryophyllene may be neuroprotective and have cardiovascular and immune benefits.* It’s also a powerful antioxidant that promotes immune health.*
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!
THC: THC, or TetraHydroCannabinol, is also a naturally occurring compound in the cannabis plant. This is the party 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. 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 its 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.
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.
So to summarize 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 doTERRA’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.*

7 Copaiba Essential Oil Uses
This essential oil appears pale yellow in color and has a slightly bitter taste. The resin that makes the oil is extracted from has been used as a native folk remedy dating back to the 16th century. Although they seem almost limitless, I have found that these 7 copaiba essential oil uses top the charts.
1. Copaiba Essential Oil Uses for Anti-inflammatory & Pain Reliever
A go-to natural pain solution for hundreds of years, the fact that copaiba oil heals has drawn a lot of attention to it in the American essential oil community. Copaiba essential oil uses in Brazil include both an anti-inflammatory and an anti-septic. In fact, Amazonian traditional medical practitioners often prescribed the oil for its anti-inflammatory properties. One study published in The Journal of Ethnopharmacology revealed that the main compound found in this oil was beta-caryophyllene. Beta-caryophyllene is an anti-inflammatory agent that also has analgesic, or pain killing, properties.
Another study looked at the influence of copaiba essential oil uses on rats in the repair of abdominal defects that were corrected mesh. Researchers found that those treated with copaiba oil showed an improvement in the inflammatory response. While another study found that copaiba oils have a peripheral and central antinociceptive effect, meaning that the oil blocks the detection of painful or injurious stimulus. These studies suggest that the oil is not only useful as an anti-inflammatory, but can also be used as a natural pain reliever.
2. Copaiba Essential Oils Uses to Protect the Liver
Not only does copaiba act as a painkiller itself, but it can also help reduce liver tissue damage that is caused by acetaminophens like Tylenol. One study measured the effect of copaiba oil in liver damage that was induced by acetaminophen in rats. In the study, researchers administered copaiba oil to the rats for 7 days. The study found that the oil reduced liver damage caused by paracetamol, or acetaminophen.
It is important to note, that if you are interested in copaiba essential oil uses for pain relief or to protect your liver due to routine acetaminophen use, it is vital that you follow safety guidelines. Taking too much of the oil can actually cause harm. In fact, in the rat study, large oral doses were shown to increase bilirubin, which is a sign of liver disease. Be sure to limit to 1-2 drops each dose and spread doses out to every 4 hours. The safest way to consume is in a gel capsule filled with olive oil, or you can dilute with some coconut oil and sweetened it up with a little honey. Like any essential oil that you take orally, it is vital that you consult with your physician and never take more than the recommended dose.
3. Copaiba Essential Oils Uses for Protecting the Brain
In addition to the oil itself, copaiba oil-resin has also been shown to work as a natural healing solution. Oleoresins are naturally occurring mixtures of oil and resin that are extracted from plants like the copaiba tree. These mixtures have been used in traditional healing and Brazilian folk medicine for years. However, recent studies have also shown that oleoresin treatment works as a neuroprotective (protects the brain).
A research study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine looked at how copaiba oil-resin (COR) could possibly be used as an anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective after neural disorders. The study used adult rats to investigate the anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects of COR after acute damage to the motor cortex. The results of the study suggested that “COR treatment induces neuroprotection by modulating inflammatory response following an acute damage to the central nervous system.”
4. Copaiba Oil Uses for Acne
Many essential oils can be used to reduce the appearance of acne or help clear up other skin irritations. Copaiba oil is no exception. It’s anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties make it an ideal natural solution for those who suffer from acne. When extracted from the oil resin, copaiba essential oil can be used to effectively treat surface acne.
Researchers conducted a double-blind placebo controlled clinical trial aimed at testing the effects of copaiba essential oil on volunteers with acne. After distilling the essential oil through steam distillation and purifying it through freezing to remove remnant water, researchers then incorporated the essential oil into a gel to use for testing. The gel was applied to the areas affected by acne. The results showed that there was a highly significant decrease in the surface affected with acne in the areas that were treated with 1.0% copaiba essential oil preparation.
5. Copaiba Essential Oil Uses for Autoimmune Conditions
The research on the use of copaiba oil for autoimmune conditions is still very new and experimental. However, it is interesting to note that research is being done to see how this essential oil might provide a natural treatment option for those who suffer from autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis.
In a recent study, researchers investigated how copaiba oil effected the immune system response in cultured cells from mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). EAE is an autoimmune disease found in rodents that is used to study multiple sclerosis. The results of this study suggest that copaiba oil acts on the mechanism of development of EAE by modulating the immune response.
Again, this research is still very experimental, and more studies will need to be conducted to determine how the oil might impact immune system response in humans with autoimmune conditions. However, it is promising to see these results, which suggest the oil might also help those suffering from diseases like multiple sclerosis.
6. Copaiba Essential Oil Uses for Oral Health Care
Copaiba essential oil uses have also shown to be effective in oral health care. Though most essential oils can often be used safely on the skin when mixed with a carrier oil, many of these oils are not safe for use orally. However, copaiba oil is safe if used properly. A study that aimed to evaluate the cytotoxic effect of a Copaiba oil-based root canal sealer determined that the oil is not cytotoxic, meaning it is safe and useful as a root canal sealer.
Furthermore, another study showed that copaiba oil was a bacteriostatic agent when used against Streptococcus mutans, a bacteria commonly found in the human mouth that is a significant contributor to tooth decay. This means that it was able to stop bacteria from reproducing, suggesting that copaiba oil may be useful in preventing cavities.
7. Copaiba Essential Oil Uses for Infection
We have already looked at how copaiba essential oil uses can be used to treat different kinds of infections such as skin issues like acne and oral health problems like tooth decay. However, there is even more research out there regarding other types of infection that suggests copaiba oil may also be helpful in acting as a natural healing agent.
One such study looked at copaiba essential oil uses as a prophylactic or preventative approach for those with fecal peritonitis leading to severe sepsis. This study tested rats and measured their survival rates, comparing animals who were injected with copaiba before being infected with those who were infected afterwards. Interestingly, those animals that were treated with copaiba before getting sick, survived considerably than those who were treated afterwards. Of course, more research needs to be conducted to make a hard conclusion, but this suggests that people prone to infection – for example, pre-surgery, pre-chemo and etc – could benefit from safe, internal use of copaiba oil.
