Copaiba oil, pronounced ko-pi-ee-bah, has many beneficial properties but one of the most exciting is for inflammation.

Of all essential oils studied, copaiba contains 55%, the highest levels of a sesquiterpene known as beta caryophyllene, which exerts powerful anti-inflammatory action. Cannabis contains around 30% caryophyllene (aka beta-caryophyllene).

Beta-caryophyllene has been extensively studied for its ability to modulate the inflammation process, both inside and outside the body.

Beta-caryophyllene is a dietary cannabinoid

How to use:
