How CBD works
Learn the story behind “ECO” in Eco Sciences™
It makes sense if you know how CBD works.
It’s actually an acronym. It stands for Endocannabinoid Optimization. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is activated when we consume cannabinoids and it’s incredibly important for regulating our bodily functions.
THE ECS IS WHERE CANNABINOIDS ENTER THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
Through a series of CB Receptors in our nerve cells and immune cells. Different cannabinoids interact with either the CB1 or CB2 receptors. Thats how CBD works in a nutshell.
" SO WHAT? Why do I need cannabinoids anyways? "
Our bodies are literally built with a system designed to absorb cannabinoids naturally. Ignoring the potential power of this system would be like deliberately leaving out puzzle pieces, and then wondering why the puzzle doesn’t quite match the picture on the box it came in.
The ECS is first engaged in our bodies by receiving endocannabinoids in breast milk as a baby. Doesn’t that say alot? We’re not talking about drugs, we’re talking about nature. The ECS is involved in properly regulating physiological and cognitive processes including fertility, metabolism, pregnancy, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, sleep, and memory.
: the degree and rate at which a substance (such as a drug) is absorbed into a living system or is made available at the site of physiological activity

It is just being absorbed in a different way. If your interested in learning how terpenes and phytocannabinoids work check out our blog article on how to spot fake cbd.
