This suggests that more research involving more participants and well-designed studies is needed in order to better understand if, how, and why CBD works.
Mislabeling appears to be a fairly common problem with CBD products. In one study, 70% of the CBD products that were sold online contained significantly more of the psychoactive ingredient THC than the label indicated.
A 2019 comprehensive review published in The Lancet Psychiatry looked at previously published studies. The review ultimately concluded that there was little evidence to support the use of CBD for mental health purposes and suggested that more research is needed in order to substantiate its use to treat symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
It may be helpful to take a broad-spectrum product since research suggests that CBD’s effects may be most beneficial when taken in conjunction with other cannabinoids, a phenomenon known as the entourage effect. CBD may also help mitigate some of the effects of THC.
If you are targeting specific symptoms of a condition, taking an oil, capsule, or gummy might be a better way to obtain a higher, more concentrated dose.

Here are the equations:
How much CBD you should take relies heavily on knowing how much of the compound is actually in your bottle. Premium Jane CBD oils come with an integrated dropper cap, which allows for simple and convenient measuring.
How Much CBD is in One Drop of Oil?
There are no standard guidelines when it comes to how to dose CBD or how many milligrams to take. In general, for people that are just starting out, the smaller the milligram dose, the better.
For people just getting into CBD, it’s common to wonder how many milligrams they should actually be taking. We get asked every day ‘how much CBD oil should I take,’ but unfortunately, it’s not easy (or even possible) to provide a one-size-fits-all answer.
One full milliliter (1mL) – which is one dose/serving – equates to roughly 20 drops. If you have a 30ml bottle, for example, which contains 300 mg of CBD in total, a single drop will contain about 0.5 mg of CBD.
Determining How Much CBD To Take
If you’re still wondering how much CBD to take, we emphasize the importance of keeping a daily personal CBD journal. If you’re just starting out with your first use of CBD, record how many milligrams you took, and at what time. Listen closely to your body, and record any effects (or lack thereof) that you may feel.
To summarize, we can’t tell you exactly how much CBD to take, because the answer for everyone rests on a variety of factors. However, we hope these basic guidelines have provided an adequate blueprint that will set you on a path to determine a milligram amount that works for you.
