The ABCs of CBD: The Essential Guide for Parents (and regular folks too) by author Shira Adler, explains "Why Pot Is NOT What We Were Taught." Every day there is one more person / parent who becomes canna-curious or an inadvertent advocate based on their needs, and those of their family. From aging parents, to disenfranchised millennials, to children with disorders, addictions, and diseases that boggle the mind and break the heart, we are consumed with illness and disease. PTSD, ADHD, Alzheimer's, Anxiety, Autism, Arthritis, Cancer, Chronic Pain, Colitis, and much more... this is our new reality. Science points to CBD as a real alternative to traditional western medicine, and daily headlines agree! Yet the average American has no idea what it is, how to use it, or if it's legal to do so! Accessible for any reader, The ABCs of CBD is a practical, educational, and comprehensive guide—alternatively humorous and hard hitting, answering all the reader ever wanted to know about cannabinoids, but was afraid to ask. CBD is the "other" ingredient in hemp and pot—the one that doesn't get you stoned—but can still help make you better. Discover how the ancient wisdom of plants combined with cutting edge scientific research can change your life. This is the moment where the medical marijuana revolution is transforming our belief system and the way we perceive this once highly stigmatized substance. That's why author, speaker, advocate, and entrepreneur, Shira Adler, is once again using her voice to provide information, education, and awareness for what is happening at this moment in cannabis culture. Shira's book is edutainment at its best. The ABCs of CBD looks at everything from ancient history to pop culture, trends in industry/commerce, the endocannabinoid system, social justice, what science is proving, and why politicians posture. There is even a section for parents who want to know how to talk to their kids about CBD. Learn, partake and educate. You won't be disappointed.
