Although there are very few studies exploring what CBD dosage is right to treat anxiety and stress, a study done on rats in the ’90s found that dosages starting at around 2.5mg and going up to 5mg and even 10 mg of CBD / kg of body weight significantly increased the anxiolytic effect of CBD. However, going beyond the dose of 20mg of CBD / kg of body weight was no longer effective, suggesting that more is not necessarily better.
We would recommend starting with 4mg of CBD / kg of bodyweight. If results from this amount are not felt, the serving size can be increased by another 2-4 mg of CBD / kg every 3-4 weeks until the optimal dosage is found (without surpassing 20 mg/kg). It is suggested to split the dosage of CBD evenly throughout the day with every meal.
