Picking the Right CBD Dose for Anxiety, Stress & Depression

Picking the Right CBD Dose for Anxiety, Stress & Depression

If you are considering using CBD products to help with anxiety, stress, and depression (among other things) it can be hard to know how much CBD oil to take. Figuring out the right CBD dose for anxiety reduction doesn’t have to be overly difficult, but there are some things you should consider before starting your regimen. Read on to learn more about finding the best dosage of CBD oil for anxiety, and understanding how lifestyle factors can influence your results.  

How Much CBD Should I Take for Anxiety?  

The amount of CBD oil you should take for anxiety will vary slightly, depending on your severity and type of anxiety. Additionally, how your individual ECS responds to CBD will play a factor as well. Those who suffer from generalized anxiety should start by taking one serving of CBD oil (check the bottle for proper dosage). For those suffering from panic attacks or stronger episodes of anxiety, a stronger dose is recommended upon onset of the attack. This dosage can then be lowered as needed following the attack to manage the aftermath. 

It is important to note that this is just an initial recommendation; it is possible that after some experimentation with different doses you will decide that a different amount works better for you and your symptoms. Be sure not to exceed 400mg in one day as this could lead to adverse side effects such as increased heart rate or confusion.  

What Concentration of CBD Oil Product Should I Choose? 

Much like the individual doses, the strength of the concentration of a dose or bottle/jar depends on your reaction and your individual needs. If you’re looking for daily wellness or you’re a beginner CBD user, try our Rejuvenate collection – those are the green labels.

What Factors Influence My Dosage?  

In addition to severity and type of symptoms, there are several lifestyle factors that can influence how much CBD oil you should take for anxiety reduction. Your weight, metabolism, age, diet, level of physical activity, and medical history all play a part in determining what will work best for you specifically. It’s important to consult with a medical professional prior to beginning any new supplement regimen if you have any pre-existing conditions or conditions requiring medication management. As previously mentioned, everyone’s body chemistry is unique so keep track of what works best for you and adjust accordingly over time as needed. 

CBD has been found very helpful in reducing symptoms associated with stress and anxiety, but it’s important to know exactly how much oil is right for each individual case before starting a regimen with the product. It’s also important not to exceed 400mg per day since this could lead to adverse side effects like increased heart rate or confusion. Finally, keep in mind that everyone has different body chemistry so it may be necessary over time to adjust dosages based on individual needs and preferences! With the right approach though – finding the correct dose takes dedication and patience – there really isn't any reason why incorporating CBD into your daily routine shouldn't help improve your overall quality life!
