Author and speaker Shira Adler has published what she calls “the definitive new book on the subject of CBD,” or Cannabidiol, the primary compound thought to give cannabis and hemp their healing power. The ABC’s of CBD: The Essential Guide for Parents (And regular folks too) is intended for anyone interested in the subject of CBD, medical marijuana or alternative healthcare solutions.

The book explains “why pot is not what we were taught” and answers many of the questions people have about CBD, including, What is it? Is it legal? Is it safe for kids? Where does it come from? What does it do? and, Is all CBD equal?

She explains that CBD will not get you high—in fact, it was all but eliminated from cannabis strains because it blocks the psychoactive effects of THC—but as more and more individuals and families struggle with chronic health problems, the medical and therapeutic promise of CBD is being proven almost every day.

“From aging parents, to disenfranchised millennials, to children with disorders, addictions and diseases that boggle the mind and break the heart—anxiety, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s, colitis, chronic pain, cancer, fibromyalgia—this is our new reality, and Western medicine doesn’t hold the answers,” she says. “While science points to CBD as the antidote, most Americans don’t know what it is, how to use it or whether it’s even legal. Stigma, fear, social injustice and misinformation continue to loom large in the psyche of America when it comes to this subject.”
