Do kapok trees make sap?
The Kapok produces sap just like any other tree; it's how all trees get nutritients to their branches and leaves. In the case of the Kapok it's not like you make a cut and you can harvest the sap like a gum tree. You have to rip off the bark and boil it. The resulting produce from the Kapok is used in medicines to treat headaches, diabetes and impotence. The most common harvest is that of the kapok seeds, used in mattresses, pillows, floating devices and stuffing for teddy bears.
