"...the ultimate guide for anyone who takes CBD or is thinking of trying it." -Mehmet Oz, M.D., Attending Surgeon, New York Presbyterian/Columbia University

Is CBD a miracle healing compound, all hype, or somewhere in between? Prevention examines the CBD phenomenon: what it is, its health benefits and how to decide if CBD is right for you.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive extract found in the Cannabis plant that's making headlines. With its fast-spreading reputation as a natural treatment for many acute and chronic ailments, CBD is showing up in a wide variety of health, beauty and food products. More than 85 percent of Americans have heard of CBD and more than one in five have tried it. Yet few people know exactly what it is, how it works, and question the many claims being made about it.

CBD & You provides readers with the information they need to determine if CBD is right for their needs and what to do if they choose to try it. Medical researchers and other experts share their findings and views on CBD's healing potential, how it interacts with our innate healing mechanisms, and why it has become the hottest ingredient in natural wellness. A condition-specific guide provides information on CBD as a treatment for ailments such as anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain and stress and shares the best practices and testimonials of people who have used it and experienced relief. A buyer's guide leads readers through the array of available choices for using CBD such as tinctures, creams, salves, as well as edibles, and helps consumers understand product labeling and determine the ones that are best for them, and even for their pets. With its clear, easily navigated organization and authoritative yet approachable tone, this is the ultimate reference that answers readers' questions as they explore the healing potential of CBD.

Cutting through the current hype about CBD's potential, this brief but comprehensive overview also suggests where this current trend may be heading in the coming years."

"In this Prevention magazine–branded introduction, Peña and Meyer, both longtime health editors, offer background on CBD chemistry, public health policy, and why the compound has so much buzz in the wellness space. [It includes] suggestions for when and how to use CBD, and a buyer’s guide that distinguishes a tincture from a potable make clear that this is an above-board health title rather than a surreptitious dorm-room read."
