CBD oil and Copaiba EO
In a discussion, I was having with Mark Denning and I was talking back and forth in relation to the Copaiba and the CBD oil. I mentioned using some Copaiba to soup up the CBD oil that Mark said he needed to take. BTW, He thought about the same idea at about the same time. Jax Bubis asked about what we meant by the term "soup it up" within this conversation. I might say that was a very good question and I appreciate her asking it. Here is the explanation for it.
What is being referenced is the Beta-caryophyllene. This is the chemical that kills the pain. Normally the CBD oil has a lower level in it. But the Copaiba oil has a very high level of it in it. When you have the properties of the CBD oil added to the Copaiba oil, the Copaiba will bring up the amount of pain suppression to a higher level and make it last a lot longer. : The CBD has a lot of the supporting properties which does support a higher level of Beta-caryophyllene, but due to the need to cultivate the Hemp plant and the variety of Hemp plants used for CBD oil to keep the THC levels potentially down, it sort of leaves a hollow spot. So to soup it up means to bring in the Copaiba to the CBD to compensate for that shortage. In the whole of the plant, the THC and the Beta-caryophyllene ratios are dependent on each other. IE; the one can only rise within certain parameters in relationship to the other. So when the THC is low, which is required by law, the BC can only rise a small amount. But all of the other healing properties are there, so to soup it up, add or use Copaiba with it for exponentially better results. Plus the Copaiba Plus Blend that Youngevity has, is even better because you have the Frankincense and Lavender in it. The Lavender has some BC in it naturally, so it sort of creates a friendly merger and the specific properties of the Frankincense merge well with the Lavender and thus to the Copaiba. It is really a very good match in the overall structure.
*** Some afterthoughts; The a-pinene in the Frankincense really merges well with the bc in the Lavender. Then the two sort of supports each other in all of the other chemical profiles of each oil. We use a 69% bc content Copaiba and most other companies uses a 55% Copaiba. IE; we use the good stuff, a little pricier, but good. The Frankincense also has a little bit of bc, so in all, itis a merger of friends, so to speak. Works really good when you can make that relationship work together.
