CBD oil is the go-to product for most people. It's convenient and offers precise dosing with a measured dropper. However, does accurate measuring make oil a better method?

How to Take CBD to Help With OCD

The method you choose should always be based on your needs. For instance, does your OCD cause sudden anxiety attacks? In that case, something fast-acting, like vaping CBD, is your ideal choice for quick relief. However, measuring dosage by puff is nearly impossible.

On the other hand, if you're trying to maintain a steady dose of CBD to keep symptoms in check throughout the day, then tinctures or edibles are better. They take longer to work than vapes, but edible CBD also lasts longer, extending the relief over four to eight hours.

Ideally, the best method is a two-pronged approach. Take a precise CBD dose for OCD using oil or some edible, but keep a fast-acting option, like a vape pen, around if you need quick relief.

Dosage: How Many Drops of CBD Oil for OCD?

Plenty of FDA-approved prescription treatments exist, but an absence of research means CBD oil isn't among the chosen few. Consequently, we don't know the CBD dosage for OCD.

Things like age, sex, metabolism, and body fat (among others) also affect your proper dose. Although we don't know how to calculate the proper amount, it's easy to find your ideal dose with meticulous trial and error.

Remember to "start low and go slow." If you're new to CBD, take the lowest dose possible and increase gradually over several weeks. It can take that long - or longer - to start seeing results.


Until we learn more, questions about CBD dosage will be left mostly unanswered. Preliminary studies offer an educated guess (at best), but we're a long way from knowing the proper CBD dose for OCD, depression, or anything else.
