CBD vs. Copaiba

This episode Dr. David Hill, Founding Executive of doTERRA, looks at CBD and Copaiba and will answer questions like: What is CBD oil? and What is the difference between CBD and Copaiba? He’ll also explain why you would choose Copaiba over CBD.



Hi, everyone. Dr. Hill.  I’m excited to spend a little bit of time with you today and I’m going to talk with you about one of my new most favorite subjects. And of course, that’s Copaiba essential oil. But today I want to do a comparison between Copaiba and CBD.

Now, I know and I recognize that there’s a lot of discussion that happens about this all of the time and many of you either have participated or you’ve heard individuals talking about it. So, can we take just a few minutes and talk about what we know and maybe help you understand some of the differences. Now there are some things that are resolute in this discussion and I feel like we need to be appreciative of that.

What We Know

We know for example that the endocannabinoid system is a resolute system. We know all there is to know about CB1 and CB2, we know where the interact in the body. We know that there’s the greater preponderance of CB2 in the periphery, for example and that CB 1 receptors are more centralized and that they have very specific functions. The whole endocannabinoid system for example is very influential all throughout the body because of this wide distribution and the variation that exists between those different types of receptors.

CB2 Receptors

CB2 receptors, which is where most of discussion seems to be focused and centralized, really deals a lot with the body’s immune capability, how the body is able to monitor and control inflammatory responses appropriately. Even lots of discussion and information showing and defining how the endocannabinoid system is very influential in helping to control different levels and forms of discomfort that we might experience. All of this factors together to mean that that system must hold some real value for us. And so of course there’s a lot of enthusiasm that seems to be present.


Now some of that is much less defined. Some of it is not as concrete as what we just described. And primarily that difference lies between what we know about endocannabinoids and what we know about cannabinoids that exist outside of our body’s own framework. Now we know that the body is self-sustaining in a lot of ways and so we probably don’t need to spend a lot of time talking about the cannabinoids that our body produces on its own. But instead let’s talk about those that we find in an outside source and specifically talking about CBD and talking about Copaiba essential oil.

Now when we talk about those it really becomes a question of how do we best influence this system within the body? We know that it’s meaningful. We know that it’s powerful and we know that its influence is needed. So how do we best create that influence? Right now, there’s a lot of discussion about CBD and its influence within that system. But I have continually spoken to and will I think forever more be in this camp between the two that I think Copaiba is a much better solution. And I’ll tell you some of the reasons why. Influence of a receptor or influence into a system is always a process of how it’s best influenced or what it is that happens within that system.

What is CBD?

There’s some distinct differences between CBD and between Copaiba essential oil that I keep referring to it as CBD and Copaiba essential oil because in fact Copaiba is an essential oil where CBD is not an essential oil. It is a botanical; it’s an isolated molecule. It does come from a hemp plant or it does come from marijuana in all of its different forms. It’s a botanical that’s housed within that plant, but it’s not an essential oil. One of the things that we know in a most basic sense is that essential oils behave very differently in the body. This is no exception. People sometimes refer to it as CBD oil because that molecule as it’s isolated is isolated and then combined with some type of a carrier oil so mistakenly referred to it as an essential oil. But know that this is isolated chemistry that’s combined with or put in some other type of a product. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing. So we have to look at all of the characteristics that exist with CBD.

Indirect Receptor Stimulation

One of the things that exists with CBD which makes it a little bit different and not exactly like what we would experience with Copaiba is essential oil is it’s actually an indirect activity. We know that to stimulate the endocannabinoid system we have to stimulate those individual receptors and indirect activity means that it doesn’t just go directly to that receptor.

Instead it goes through a whole process of activity that eventually may stimulate that receptor. Now a receptor is an all or nothing principle, either it’s stimulated or it isn’t, but how readily that stimulation takes place, or that activity takes place, within the body I think is an important consideration.

That becomes an issue of several factors including the amount that’s present. One of the things that’s unique about this as an isolated compound is that we generally don’t see it in very high amounts. Very minimal amounts in terms of the dosage and that may not be substantial enough to create the benefits that we look for consistently. And so it’s this shortened activation or a cascade of activation that has to take place, and then we have some question about dosage.

What are the Longterm Effects of CBD?

And then the other thing that really occurs within, there’s a lot of study that’s been done, but it’s not study that’s necessarily focused exclusively on CBD and its interaction with the body, and we really don’t know long term effects and benefits associated with that.

Is CBD Legal? 

The other issue is that, at least to some degree, there is some regulatory challenge that exists. While many states have said that you can have this, the federal government to date still has not.

Copaiba Essential Oil

And so, all of those things combined together for me personally, really begins to cause some question. Now, when we compare that to what we see with Copaiba essential oil it really becomes very, very different. This is an essential oil. And one of the things we know about essential oils is that we have a complete plant chemistry. In doTERRA that’s the whole cycle, that’s the whole process that exists around CPTG® and all the things that we do with that.

Direct Receptor Stimulation

We have direct receptor activity. So our interaction with the receptor is not dependent on some other thing that’s happening within the body. It can happen very quickly, and we have direct response. Direct interaction with that receptor.

One of the things that’s really been interesting to me as we look at some of the science is very small amounts of Copaiba essential oil can actually be very effective. As little as five milligrams, which is really less than one drop, of Copaiba essential oil can have very dramatic effects. And so I like that we have not only consistent interaction, but we have small amounts of dosing that’s required to create that interaction.

Does Copaiba work?

And there are more than a thousand published studies that are talking directly about Copaiba and its influence within human physiology and some of the activity that way.

So it’s not necessarily that CBD oil in and of itself or all by itself somehow is just mismatched and we shouldn’t give it any consideration. I don’t think any of us are saying that. I think it’s more of a wait and see model. Let’s see what we find out in the long term. Let’s see how it is influential.

But what we know right now is even if CBD didn’t have any of those obstacles by comparison Copaiba essential oil is different. It is an essential oil. Here we have four species of Copaiba blended together the chemistry and the construct of that is completely different including that’s primarily sesquiterpene. And one of the great values of sesquiterpenes, and of course you know I’m going to talk about chemistry; I have to do that. One of the great things about sesquiterpenes is that we have the potential for many downstream effects and benefits. In other words secondary metabolites and even tertiary metabolites longer lasting effects and benefits.

And don’t forget we get this direct activity in response with the system itself with very small amounts. So, this means that it’s perfect for using with a model of consistency.

Purity and Potency

Now I always when I think about Copaiba versus CBD, or frankly any other thing that right now kind of fits into that category, there’s four ways that I always think about it. One is purity. Nothing is more important with an essential oil, or frankly any product, than is purity.

One of the major differences that we see between Copaiba essential oil the way that doTERRA is supplying it is beyond just the chemistry and beyond the potency, which is the second P, it’s the potency and the purity of CBD is in question all of the time. We’re not really sure of the benefits of that and we don’t really know where the dosage levels are and where the efficacy comes from.

Impurity comes into question because our discovery has led us to believe that because it exists in such small amounts most of the product that we see in the marketplace in order to have enough present to be deemed as a value is really being derived more synthetically, and we don’t have to have this debate about the difference between something natural in the body and something more synthetic in the body.


So purity potency. The other thing that I think is remarkable is price. Copaiba in and of itself is extremely cost effective, especially using it the way that we want to use it with this, which is with consistency. If the endocannabinoid system is as important as we all believe that it is, regardless of what position we take within that process—whether we’re a fan of one versus the other, what we’re really looking for is consistency.

And that means that we have to have some opportunity for a daily use or some opportunity for consistent exposure. The cost difference between the two is substantial and what little we know now currently about dosage with CBD suggests that the cost for that would be in excess of well over one hundred dollars per day. That doesn’t make any sense. It’s not sustainable. And so what we really get is inconsistent product delivery with very small amounts, and we don’t get the efficacy.

So why not choose something that the price makes it equitable and makes it usable on a daily basis so that we have constant support into that system?


Then the last thing and I get excited about this one is pathway. We’ve been involved in this for a while now and we’re making this wonderful discovery where for the first time the first time in history we have this ability to look at the essential oil, and in this case Copaiba, in its full context, all of the chemistry, everything combined, not an isolated molecule. Everything in context, one with another and we can see pathway. We know where it’s going to; we know the influence that it’s having within the body.

All Factors Considered

And so when I look at those four factors, all of which are critical in my mind, price, which gives us the ability for consistency of use; potency and purity which gives us confidence within its use and gives us the assurance that we’re going to receive the maximum benefit; and then pathway in the understanding that comes from not just having the confidence in the Copaiba essential oil, but in knowing exactly what it’s going to do for us. To me it seems like something that we should all gravitate to regardless of what we think otherwise.

Copaiba is an essential oil that I believe is at the crux and at the core of what we need to do on a daily basis to help us maintain our health, to support and sustain the body, and all of the things that it must do and especially in the environments we now live in that are so challenging. So a quick invitation to you, learn about Copaiba about essential oil. Learn how to use it, learn how to incorporate it. It is one of my very favorite essential oils.

Thanks for spending a little bit of time with me. I hope to see you all very soon.

Starting a Business Core Values

Starting a Business Core Values

Now that you have decided to start a business the best place to start is setting yourself some goals.  Think about the amount of money you would like to make or the rank you would like to achieve, then set a time you think you can achieve that by.  I have a handy workbook to set goals, what is takes to achieve them so you hone in on what exactly you need to do to achieve them. Click here for the free workbook. 

Next I would like to get into the heart of your decision to ensure you get there.  Goals can set an expectation, and give you short term happiness when you achieve them. However focusing on your values along the way allows you to enjoy the whole process not just the result.

Doing things you don’t like just for survival won’t keep you there for very long. Doing things for status won’t last much longer, even freedom is superficial.  Freedom to do what -what will you do with your freedom this is your why.  (Just a tip it’s how you will help people and be a giver.)  Something you would get out of bed for even if you weren’t getting paid. This is your Purpose.

doterra Purpose Core Values (Personal WHY)

Once you find your passion, you put soul and passion into your business, things will be clearer, it will be easier to make decisions, set boundaries, and do hard things because you’ll know why you are doing them.  You will experience greater fulfillment when you live by your values.

So how do you figure out what these core values are?  For some people just sitting in a quiet place, with time to reflect, thinking of a time you experienced joy, and write things that come to mind.  For others looking at a blank piece of paper might make us draw-a-blank, so I suggest downloading a core values list. (There is a free download here)  Next, highlight some that are most important to you.  If you have more than 7-8, group them into categories, and see if one category is inclusive of others.  Narrow your list until is is 5-8.  Prioritize this list putting them in order,  most important first.  Define what each one means to you.

This may take some time to reflect on, so be sure to set a time in a month or so to review these, to see if you still see them the same way.

I have a free video training on this topic, and more in this series to follow, coming very soon.

    Dilution guide for essential oils

    Dilution guide for essential oils

    I am often asked about dilution.  Because of the potency and purity of these oils, dilution will be necessary this is great as it means your oils will last longer and be able to be applied to your skin.

    Different oils have a warming or cooling effects on the skins such as oregano, or peppermint.  This can feel like a burning sensation on sensitive skin so always dilute and test before applying.  Whereas other oils such as Lavender are more soothing to the skin, and can be used with little or no dilution depending on age, and area of the body.

    Other things to consider with oil blends are the sun sensitive oils (Citrus) that can amplify the effects of the sun and cause burning if used on the skin before sun expose.

    Dilution Applications - Adults - Children

    Please keep in mind these charts are only a guideline to follow. When counting drops I tend to get that stubborn drop that won’t come out and then 2 drops come out It’s OK if your blend does not have the exact drops the chart is recommending (remember it is a guideline). Essential oil drops are really an inaccurate measure because the viscosity differs in oils and not all droppers used are the exact same, meaning drops are not a uniform measurement. So again, these are guidelines.

    Hair Loss Alopecia and Essential Oils

    Hair Loss Alopecia and Essential Oils

    One of the most common types of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, though it can also affect females, is better known as male pattern baldness.

    Androgenetic alopecia the cause of this condition is a by product of testosterone attacking your hair follicles . When men with androgenetic alopecia massaged diluted rosemary oil into their scalp twice daily for six months, they experienced the same increase in hair thickness as those who used minoxidil (Rogaine), a common hair regrowth remedy.  Those who used the rosemary oil reported less scalp itching compared to minoxidil, which suggests that rosemary may be more tolerable.  Other research indicates that rosemary oil may help patchy hair loss, or alopecia areata, which affects up to half the population below age 21 and about 20% of people above 40. When people with alopecia areata rubbed a rosemary essential oil blend into their scalp each day for seven months, 44% showed improvement in their hair loss compared to only 15% in the control group, who used the neutral oils jojoba and grapeseed.


    Lavender Doterra Soothing Calming 15mL

    Lavender has long been used as a treatment for healthy hair. is widely considered one of the most versatile essential oils, being extremely beneficial for numerous issues.   Lavender is also considered one of the most beneficial essential oils for relaxation, skin, bedtime routines, and for healthy hair and scalp as well.  A a very soothing and calming oil, lavender can help with an irritated scalp, but it is also regenerating as well. In fact, a study conducted in 2016 found that lavender oil significantly increased the number of hair follicles and hair follicle depth.  And since it’s considered one of the safest essential oils, lavender can be used on just about anybody!

    Peppermint Doterra 15mL

    According to a 2014 study, those treated with peppermint oil experienced an increase in follicle count, increase in follicle depth, and a thickened dermal layer after four weeks. However, please note that due to its high menthol content, peppermint oil should not be used on or near the face of young children or infants.

    Geranium Doterra 15mL

    Geranium is another essential oil that is used for healthy hair growth, because it is another regenerating essential oil, it and is considered beneficial in stimulating hair growth. Comprised of mostly citronellol and geraniol, geranium has a high count of monoterpenes which are considered to be immune stimulants and general tonics. It is also commonly used in skin care due to its abilities to balance out skin types. This also makes it beneficial to use when dealing with hair loss due to irritated skin.

    Clary Sage Doterra 15mL

    Another essential oil to consider to achieve healthy hair and scalp is clary sage. Not to be confused with common sage, clary sage is a stimulating oil and can be used to both reduce hair loss and promote hair growth. Because it is commonly used to regulate hormones and reduce tension, it can be especially beneficial for hair loss that is due to tension or hormonal issues. Please note that clary sage should not be used by those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, when drinking alcohol, or if estrogen levels need to be monitored.

    Cedarwood Doterra 15mL

    Cedarwood A study was published in 1998 regarding patients who suffered from alopecia areata. The patients were treated with an essential oil blend of cedarwood, rosemary, lavender, and thyme. The blend was massaged on the scalp of individuals every day for 7 months. The results showed that 44% of the patients found improvement with their alopecia after using the essential oil blend. Cedarwood can also be beneficial for achieving healthy hair, and is considered to be useful for multiple skin and scalp conditions, including itchy scalp, dandruff, and oily hair.

    Roman Chamomile Doterra 15mL

    Roman chamomile is most known for its calming and gastric properties, chamomile is also used to support hair health. Gentle and calming, chamomile has been used for numerous issues for decades. Because of its ability to help with tension and worry, chamomile can be beneficial for hair loss due to worry or nervous feelings. It is also very calming to the skin and helpful when dealing with irritated, or itchy skin and scalp.  Chamomile is often used in hair care and is even thought to help lighten hair color. Like lavender, chamomile is considered a safe oil and can be used on most individuals.


    If not diluted properly, essential oils can cause irritation and sensitization, so make sure to always dilute them accordingly.It’s important to remember that a little goes a long way with essential oils. Because they are highly concentrated substances, only a small amount is needed.

    A great product that combines all of these oils in a easy to use solution is Root to Tip Serum.

    Emotional Support – Oil of Gladness

    Emotional Support – Oil of Gladness

    Some days are easy and some days are hard, but some days you really need emotional support.

    Today is one of those days for me.  I am just feeling really fragile for no real reason.   I received some criticism, (for something that wasn’t my fault) and I’ve felt terrible all day.  My life is pretty good, I can’t complain.  I work from home, all my needs met, I’m doing well and today I even got to watch my two eldest daughters receive some well deserved awards for school achievement. That didn’t stop that nagging gut feeling, that was bringing me down.

    Why such a small thing could get me down is beyond my comprehension, it’s not my normal, but here I am hours later thinking any moment I could cry if I think about it for more than 3 seconds.   The person even called me, to admit it was in fact his fault for not communicating the details after making an exception to usual procedures.  But still I feel low.  this is very out of character for me, I have even prayed for comfort.

    The LORD works in mysterious ways.

    So I turned to essential oils.  A quick check in a book/app for oils to use and I’m reaching for the diffuser.   Clary Sage, Lavender, Lemon and Lime to the rescue. I put these oils in the diffuser, but later decided to make up a 10mL roller with this same blend.  I also decided to treat myself to a pot of tea in a special set a friend gave me.  After an hour sitting here with the diffuser, It has really lifted my spirits and I and feel the frowns line leaving.

    Is it time for you to do some self care today?
