BCP oil is the 'next big thing' in natural pain remedies (Australia)
Despite the waves of media attention that it has received over the years, CBD oil is still unavailable in Australia
But luckily, there's finally some light at the end of the tunnel for Aussies who are seeking effective, natural, and legal relief from these symptoms.
Introducing... Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP)
So, what on earth is BCP?
First, you must understand what Terpenes are. Terpenes are compounds found in plants that give them their flavour and aroma.
Beta-Caryophyllene is a terpene found in nature that when ingested, provides many, if not all of the same health benefits as traditional cannabis oil.
The reason why BCP is such a breakthrough is because it exclusively binds with the body's CB2 receptors (associated with mood, pain regulation and the immune system), which means that by Australian law, it's not classed as a Cannabinoid. This means it's 100% legal and readily available.
You can read the Therapeutic Goods Administration full scheduling decision here, but we've quoted the most important part below!
"A submission raised the issue of Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP) being a cannabinoid from their perspective and hence affecting the scheduling of this substance. Research by the secretariat has confirmed that Beta-Caryophyllene is a terpene that is a selective agonist of cannabinoid receptor type-2 (CB2) and for the purposes of this scheduling entry, the delegate does not define BCP as a cannabinoid."
Where does it come from?
Beta-Caryophyllene is found in many plants throughout nature, but it's most widely recognised for being found in hemp, black pepper, and cloves.
Fun fact: The power of BCP was actually established by folk medicine — clove oil, for example has long been used for relieving dental pain!
What does it treat?
BCP treats most (if not all) of the same symptoms as CBD oil, as well as improving overall health and wellbeing. The list of symptoms it can treat include:
Inflammatory Pain - Can reduce symptoms of painful inflammatory related conditions such as arthritis
Anxiety/Depression - Balances mood and relieves feelings of sadness, stress and anxiety
Insomnia/Sleep Problems - Aids sleep and relaxes the body and mind
Immune System Support - Protects cell linings and promotes healthy gut bacteria
Is it 100% legal?
Yes! BCP is 100% legal to purchase and use.
Where can I get it?
You can get Cannamax Plus here.
Is it easy to use?
Yep! For pain, simply take 2-4 drops under the tongue and wait 60 seconds for it to dissolve.
For anxiety/stress and sleeping problems, massage a few drops of Cannamax Plus into the temples on the sides of your forehead, or take 2-4 drops under the tongue and wait 60 seconds for it to dissolve.
BCP is perhaps one of the most well-known terpenes and for good reason. From its actions as an anti-inflammatory to a mood-boosting agent capable of alleviating stress or anxiety, BCP is sure to provide a range of health benefits when used in BCP-containing essential oils as part of your daily routine.
