CBD Oil Dosage for Depression
CBD hemp oil can alleviate depression, but for its efficacy, the method of CBD intake and daily dosage are important. As it’s been advised to you in other posts, when establishing CBD treatment it is also important to pay attention to your body signals, in other words, just listen to your body.
For mild depression, it is recommended to start with 25-50 mg per day, and increase it gradually, whilst monitoring yourself, to reach the desired effect for more severe cases of depression. It is not uncommon for patients with severe depression to take more than 100 or even several hundred milligrams of CBD.
But how many drops in one milligram. That depends on the potency of your CBD oil. Use our CBD oil dosage calculator to determine the correct number of drops.
Notably, the CBD oil dosing is usually explained on the product itself, but since there are many products, it is important to navigate through the CBD process according to the severity of depression. Since depression affects eating habits, you can mix CBD product with your food, or most commonly people drop the CBD oil under their tongue and keep it there for at least one minute.
Also, for better results, use CBD oil at least twice daily. Undoubtedly, the dosage is the key in order to maintain balanced and effective CBD depression treatment. However, there are also lots of people that take it three times a day or just once a day all at once.
In certain cases when CBD is not working (usually very severe depression), cannabis can also be an option. Cannabis oil is the major component of cancer treatment along with CBD oil. In our RSO dosage article, you can read about different dosage roadmaps and other valuable information about cancer treatment.
