Intended to enhance a healthy lifestyle, CBD or cannabidiol is naturally-derived from hemp plants.

What is CBD?

A critical distinction to make when discussing how CBD oil works is that CBD is not the same thing as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) , which is intoxicating and causes euphoric side effects. In plain English, you will not ‘get high’ from using CBD oil, as is commonly associated and experienced with cannabis use.

To elaborate, CBD binds both to CB1 receptors in the brain and CB2 receptors throughout the body’s central nervous system. The unique feature of connecting to both receptors, like a key in a lock, benefits the whole body. CB1 receptors have been linked to mental health conditions, such as anxiety. CB2 receptors have been linked to physical health ailments such as inflammation, joint pain, spasms, and swelling.

Copaiba oil originates from the trunks of trees in the Copaifera family. Similar to CBD, Copaiba oil and resin have been used therapeutically, dating back to the 16th century. Copaiba oil has several beneficial effects. Existing studies of Copaiba’s history are limited; however, records highlight Copaiba oil has been a long-time favorite in South America, specifically Brazil.

Although there is little research specifically into using CBD and Copaiba oil together, it’s projected it is safe to consume both simultaneously. Many sources believe consuming both can be even more beneficial due to how all of the cannabinoids work together synergistically, through a process known as the entourage effect.

Differences

To illustrate, after the enzymes break down the cannabinoids, the endocannabinoids react to bind with receptors. Scientists believe CBD does not directly attach itself to the receptors but rather influences it in some way. Triggering the receptors is what ultimately produces many of the health benefits experienced from the cannabis compound.

Experts believe the ECS’s leading role is to maintain homeostasis or the stability of your internal environment. Both CBD and Copaiba have unique features enabling them to naturally and biologically interact with our body.

What is Copaiba Oil?

The entourage effect is when two or more compounds work together to enhance one another’s effects, promoting more substantial results. Ingestion of Copaiba oil and CBD oil might produce a similar entourage effect as well.
