Step 7 – BCP

broken image

It’s time to turn our attention to the third type of phytocannabinoid, BCP. As you’ll soon discover, many feel this is a safer, more powerful alternative to CBD.

BCP (Beta-CaryoPhyllene) binds DIRECTLY to CB2 receptors. This means that it provides the same benefits as CBD does to functions associated with CB2 receptors but at a much more direct, powerful way.

It does NOT interact with CB1 receptors, so there is no risk of psychoactive effects while receiving the soothing benefits that happen when it binds to the CB2 receptors.

BETA-CARYOPHYLLENE is a Sesquiterpene. Sesquiterpenes have the distinction of being larger molecules that are slower to metabolize and, therefore, have longer-lasting effects on the body. They are excellent for helping reduce discomfort and can protect against oxidative stress. BCP has benefits for skin and cellular health and may also support healthy immune and nervous system function.

BCP soothes tissues and helps manage healthy inflammatory responses. It is found in large concentrations in Black Pepper, Oregano, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Melissa, Clove, Rosemary, and Juniper Berry Essential Oils, but the largest concentration of BCP is found in Copaiba.
