This week looks at the various ways you can utilise your Canna Oils BCP.
This is the best and most efficient method of absorbing Beta Caryophyllene (BCP) directly into the blood stream. Essentially, when Canna Oils BCP is placed under your tongue, it diffuses through the mucous membranes beneath your tongue. And because of the plethora of capillaries there, the BCP has a fairly direct route into your bloodstream. This results in working faster, and oftentimes, better absorption.
When applied topically, Canna Oils BCP can act as a local analgesic. So if you are needing extra relief from pain and inflammation, apply a few drops to the effect area and rub in. You can mix with a carrier oil such as hemp seed oil, avocado oil or even olive oil if you are applying to a large area.
You can also use your Canna Oils BCP across your forehead when you have a headache, or across your abdomen for cramps. Give it a try!
TIP: if you really struggle with the taste of Canna Oils BCP you can always apply topically to the soles of your feet!
Take your Canna Oils BCP along with you to your next massage appointment, and ask your massage therapist to add a few drops to their massage oil. This has a double benefit – a nice relaxing massage to stimulate the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and the benefit of using the Canna Oils BCP topically on existing aches and pains. A massage raises the endocannabinoid level in the ECS, easing sore muscles and promoting pain relief.
Like many systems in the body, the ECS is adversely affected by stress and stress hormones like cortisol. To reduce the impact of stress on the ECS, experts suggest introducing healthy behaviours such as exercise, social interaction and massage which can actually help increase natural endocannabinoids.
Whether you bake, cook, fry, or sauté, terpenes can be used to enhance the flavour of food. Beta Caryophyllene (BCP) is a terpene, so try adding it to your spice rack so that you can include it on your steak, salad dressing or soup.
Whether you drink juice or cocktails, you can add terpenes to your favourite beverages. For most, this means a drop or two in their morning tea or in their evening adult beverage.
NB: Adding to your food or beverage should be in addition to your daily oral dose!
For centuries, aromatherapy has been relied on to help heal the body and the mind. Over so many years, aromatic experiences have been a cornerstone to healing for many. These experiences have evolved into using terpenes for candles, diffusers, and incense so that you can fill spaces with wonderful scents. A combination of terpenes and other chemicals can create a relaxing or energising olfactory experience.
7. On Wounds:
Canna Oils BCP may decrease inflammation and accelerate re-epithelialization (usually the final healing stage of a wound, in which the surface layer epithelium regenerates from the edges to cover the wound site). This refers to the restoration of structure and function of injured tissues. During this process, epithelial cells at the wound start to migrate and cover the injured area. Researchers say that beta-caryophyllene mayprevent cell death, allowing cells to survive and proliferate.
