Best Books About CBD You Should Read

Expanding your CBD knowledge can benefit every hemp-derived cannabinoid advocate regardless of if you are experimenting for the first time or a seasoned vet. Read these 5 books by industry experts and medical professionals to better understand CBD and how it can impact your life.

A Patient’s Guide to Medicinal Cannabis – Healing without the High

Written By: Julian Birnbaum and Leonard Leinow

Publishing Date: 2017


Our first recommendation is the perfect book for first-time CBD users. While seasoned advocates will also find a plethora of information on benefits, administration methods, and CBD-rich strains, the book is written so anyone can navigate the world of cannabidiol.

Our favorite part about the book is condition-specific dose recommendations. This is one of the most significant challenges in the CBD industry. The authors address the most popular uses for CBD, giving their advice on the product type and dose.

The CBD Bible

Written by: Dr. Dani Gordon, MD

Publishing Date: 2020


Dr. Dani Gordon is one of the industry’s most visible advocates. Her medical credentials and experience treating patients with cannabis provide her with a wealth of knowledge to pass on to readers.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding CBD, we are confident they will be addressed in the CBD Bible.

CBD: What Does the Science Say?

Written By: Linda A. Parker, Erin M. Rock, Raphael Mechoulam

Publishing Date: 2022


Our readers who are familiar with CBD, understand the mechanism of natural relief, and the relationship with the ECS may run into some redundant information in the first two recommendations. However, CBD: What Does the Science Say? is a deep dive into the latest scientific developments.

The book referenced recent reports, articles, meta-analyses, and clinical studies to keep you informed on what is happening in the CBD scientific community today. Reading is challenging for scientific research novices but completely worth it if you want to expand your knowledge on CBD.

The ABCs of CBD: Why Pot is Not What We Were Taught

Written By: Shira Adler

Publishing Date: 2018


Author Shira Adler addresses the misinformation around cannabis and gives a fact-based analysis from a parent’s perspective. If you are looking to use CBD for yourself, aging parents, and even children, this is the book for you.

The ABCs of CBD clears up common misconceptions and why our biases regarding cannabis exist. Adler references cannabis remedies from the past and present to further your understanding of CBD in a manner accessible to all readers.   

Healing with CBD: How Cannabidiol Can Transform Your Health without the High

Written By: Lauren Wilson, Eileen Konieczny RN

Publishing Date: 2018


Our final recommendation is one of the most popular CBD books to date. Healing with CBD is a comprehensive, easy-to-read guide covering the treatments and benefits of cannabidiol. In addition, the book does a great job at helping consumers understand how CBD is manufactured and what to look for when finding a reputable retailer.

While the book is a great place to start if you are new to CBD, it also references some of the most prominent research to date.

We recommend this book to anyone looking to learn more about CBD, but it is a bit more advanced than A Patient’s Guide to Medicinal Cannabis and The CBD Bible. 

Knowledge is Power

We still have much to learn about CBD. Reading extensive analysis by the industry’s leading professionals is the best way to expand your knowledge on the topic. Picking up any of these books is guaranteed to take your understanding of CBD and how it affects our bodies to the next level.
