Why support this book?   Every day there is one more person / parent who becomes canna-curious or inadvertent advocate based on their needs, and the needs of their family.  From aging parents and disquieted millennials to struggling children with disorders, addictions, and diseases that boggle the mind and break the heart.  Anxiety, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s, colitis, chronic pain, cancer and much more… this is our new reality.  The antidote? Science says CBD, and daily headlines agree!  Yet for the average American, they have no idea what it is, how to use it, or if it’s legal to do so!  Stigma, fear, social injustice, and misinformation continue to  loom large in the psyche of America. 

That’s why author, speaker, advocate and entrepreneur, Shira Adler, known as #MAMA (Modern Alt. Mom Advocate) aka #ThePotMom, 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 succinctly, humorously and comprehensively covers the full spectrum of all things CBD, cannabis, hemp, and more… 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. If you’re reading this and you’re already an advocate, you know it’s not always easy to stand up for what you believe in.  Yet for Shira this is her purpose and passion. 

From being the debut mom on Bravo’s “Extreme Guide to Parenting” to appearing on Good Morning America, The Today Show, and more – through her articles, podcasts and blogs, Shira is no stranger to using her voice to educate, entertainm and enlighten.   Shira is “that” mom who transmutes her own shocking experience of having been reported to Child Protective Services (more than once) into a powerful platform to encourage, and uplift others.  Basically, Shira’s throat chakra has no off switch. So thank you for ordering The ABCs of CBD: The Essential Guide for Parents (And regular folks too).  Available November 22, 2017 on! (Don’t forge to leave a review on Amazon!)

The equivalent of the dot com explosion in today’s economy is the cannabis industry. If you’re an investor, healthcare practitioner, patient, or parent of someone in need, the ABC’s of CBD is the book you need to have and read – because it explains the “other” ingredient in cannabis and hemp better the any book out there. Fast-paced, sometimes meaty, sometimes lighthearted, this ebook is infotainment at its best. Shira Adler’s voice is one that must be heard in today’s crowded, noisy cultural apiary.
