The Benefits of BCP
One of the most fascinating things about Copaiba is that it contains BCP (beta-caryophyllene), which is one of the most effective and therapeutic compounds found in Cannabis Oil. Coming from the Copaiba tree, it does not contain any psychoactive or psychotropic cannabinoids (so there are no “highs” involved). So you can have similar health benefits as CBD, without worrying about THC contamination or any legal issues which are associated with CBD oil use.
Why do you use the doTERRA Copiaba Essential Oil?
DoTERRA uses four types of resin (the only one on the market to do so), to create an oil that has 60% BCP. It’s also safe, legal and also affordable. Affordability is especially for us as we see a lot of clients with chronic health problems, and we wanted to be able to provide a product that could be used regularly for treatment that wouldn’t cost a fortune.
