Despite the rise in popularity of CBD oil and CBD-based products, many people continue to doubt them with a heavy dose of skepticism. The array of similar products don’t make it a very positive case for CBD oil, either.
The Difference Between CBD & Copaiba Oil
Because many of these are advertised as oils, there is little differentiation and many times, this creates confusion and people use the same term for different products. Such is the case with hemp oil, CBD oil, and copaiba oil. While I’ve explained the main differences between the hemp oil and CBD oil in a previous article, I will cover the differences between CBD oil and copaiba oil.
CBD stands for cannabidiol, one of the most abundant cannabinoids in hemp. When extracted from the hemp and isolated as pure CBD, then dissolved in a carrier oil, this product is called CBD oil. There is also hemp oil which contains all the naturally occurring terpenes and cannabinoids in the hemp plant. There is the full spectrum hemp oil, which contains all of the terpenes and cannabinoids from hemp, except for THC. Full-spectrum oil affects the whole body and brings an array of useful benefits.
Unlike hemp and CBD oils which are derived from hemp, copaiba oil is derived from the brown resin that flows from the Copaifera, a genus of flowering plants. This resin contains essential oils that are extracted from it. The oil extracted from the resin of the stimulant oleoresin, copaiba, has some interesting health effects and is especially effective for inflammation and bacterial infections. CBD oil has similar properties, which is why these are sometimes mistaken for one another.
What Makes Them Different?
Although both oils can be used as an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent, they are very different. The terpene profiles of the copaiba and CBD oils are dissimilar, with only one or two of the same compounds.
Because the copaiba oil strongly depends on the usefulness of these terpenes, CBD oil has many useful terpenes, especially full-spectrum hemp or CBD oil. These oils also have an array of useful cannabinoids that greatly improve the well-being of the body and mind.
If you prefer to use the copaiba oil for treatment of lesser inflammations, you should not expect it to work as well as CBD oil does. CBD oil and full-spectrum CBD and hemp oil affect the body in a more profound manner.
They bind with the receptors in the endocannabinoid system, bringing the natural balance in order, alleviating pain, relaxing the body, lessening anxiety, and the list of benefits continues.
Many people that suffer from mild inflammation can find their salvation in the use of copaiba oil, providing relief for minor pain. However, it can never be compared to the effectiveness of CBD oil. With the effectiveness of the full-spectrum CBD oil particularly, it is almost unmatched by anything else in the alternative medicine’s cabinet.
