Copaiba vs. CBD

Updated: Sep 7


“Pain in your body is not your body’s way of saying it is deficient in acetaminophen.”

Last year we talked about the buzz around Copaiba and it’s benefits and some amazing stories around it. If you want some resources and protocols for using Copaiba for pain relief, immunity support and inflammatory response and respiratory response email me at info@3lifeessentials.com and I’ll send those over to you!


There has been a lot of excitement over Copaiba and CBD and a lot of comparison between the two. And I want to dig into that with you and talk about what is the difference between the two, why the purity matters and price points.

Both Copaiba and CBD interaction with the endocannabinoid system (ECB) in the body. This is a newer discovered body system but this system is very supportive of the immune system. It helps to stabilize our bodies and bring it back to homeostasis. Within the system, there are CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB2 receptors are more focused on the immune system. There are both plants and essential oils (Melissa, Black Pepper, Copaiba) that have cannabinoids in them. Copaiba has the highest number of cannabinoids in it and works directly with the CB2 receptors. CBD works indirectly with those receptors.


Copaiba essential oil is a unique blend from the resin of the four different species of the Copaifera tree. I challenge you to go find Copaiba oil like this anywhere else. This creates uniqueness and depth in its benefits. Every species of a plant or tree yields different benefits so when we blend 4 different species it provides a wide range of benefits for the body. doTERRA Copaiba is comprised of 99.86% sesquiterpene chemistry and this means you will get longer lasting benefits because of this.

doTERRA (and I) are not necessarily opposed to CBD oil but there are some unique challenges when it comes to CBD; how it is analyzed, regulatory issues doesn’t meet CPTG standards. Our purity CPTG standards are the most important aspect, regardless of what is trendy and what everyone else is doing. We are unwilling to compromise on that.


Copaiba is extremely cost-effective especially when you use it in the way that you should. If the endocannabinoid system is as important as we believe it is using products that support that system consistently is paramount. The cost difference between Copaiba and CBD, if we look at what little we know about dosage with CBD (to truly be consistent and effective) it suggests the cost to up over $100 per day. That’s not sustainable! With Copaiba it is 14 cents per drop and you truly only need 1 to 2 drops at a time! And this is for soothing discomfort, relieving anxious feelings or promoting the health of just about every system in your body, Copaiba is a SUPERSTAR.


Here are five ways you can incorporate Copaiba into your daily routine:

1. First thing in the morning put 1 to 3 drops of Copaiba under your tongue can support the health of your circulatory system, digestive system, nervous system, immune system, and respiratory system. Or take a Copaiba softgel!

2. Massage Copaiba directly onto your body for targeted pain relief support.

3. You can put a drop of Copaiba in your facial lotion to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

4. If you are feeling all the feels, you can diffuse Copaiba to relieve feelings of anxiousness.

5. Put it into a veggie cap to relieve pain.


If you would like to get Copaiba in your home you can purchase the oil or the softgels! I would love to set up a time to chat with you and talk about your health goals and discuss how Copaiba can help you achieve them. Schedule a time to chat today!
