Dosing of CBD can be a bit tricky. I need ~10-20mg a day for a decent therapeutic effect. In terms of costs, I find its cheapest to make CBD oil from the dry herb.

I get 10g of 'tower' (which has 11-13% CBD potential). I heat it (at 240C) for one hour and then another hour heated in oil. I use olive oil as a carrier oil (which seems to have good support for absorbency - and contains oleic acid, which converts to oleamide, which itself has cannabimimetic properties). Under ideal circumstances, this would produce 130mg of CBD. I can get 5-7 days worth of CBD for this. It's a little over a buck a day. If I wasn't paying out of pocket I would probably take 2-3x this. However, I hear there is some cumulative effect in that the effect strengthen over time (?)

I could honestly benefit from a bit more. I have taken higher doses and they help. Hopefully, a synthetic CBD becomes available for treatment of anxiety or related disorders. This could bring costs down further.

However, I am in much better shape overall than I was 1.5 years ago. It has improved my anxiety and insomnia dramatically (in combination with THC) and side effects are minimal, if that.
