CBD Asylum are one of the few brands to produce CBD in tablet form. Their range includes CBD tablets, CBD night tablets, CBD immune tablets, CBD Sunshine tablets or CBD pro tabs. The others include additional ingredients to unlock a wider range of benefits, but I’ve been trying the standard CBD version.
In one jar you get 100 tablets, each with 10mg of CBD making a total of 1000mg. If you follow the suggested serving of 1 – 3 tablets, 1 – 3 times a day, they could last from 11 days to over three months. I chose to take three, three times per day over the course of 11 days.
Having never had CBD tablets before, I was keen to give these a try. They’re made with 99.99% pure isolate so don’t contain any additional cannabinoids or other hemp substances. Because of the tablet form, they do contain some fillers and additives. The ingredients are listed as;
- Microcrystalline cellulose
- Magnesium stearate
- Dicalcium phosphate
- Silicon dioxide
- Colouring agent
Who are CBD Asylum?
Founded in 2016, CBD Asylum is a joint venture by friends, and fellow drag racing enthusiasts, Alex and Liam. They were looking for a new project when they heard about the benefits of CBD; Together, they believed that they could create a brand that would stand out in the industry.
Everything they make is manufactured in an ISO level 7 cleanroom and combines science and nature to enhance potency and flavour. CBD Asylum’s products, which include CBD oil, CBD e-liquid and CBD gummies, are made with CBD isolate because it’s an effective way to guarantee extremely low levels of THC. The isolate itself is imported from a hemp farm in the USA where it’s grown to organic standards. The finished items are tested by well-known third-party UK lab PhytoVista.
3rd Party Lab Tests
Currently, there aren’t any third-party lab tests available for the tablets. For other CBD Asylum products they can be easily accessed from the product page, but this isn’t the case for any of the tablets. However, as they’re made with the same isolate, they would likely show CBD with a trace of CBDV and no THC.
When I spoke to CBD Asylum about this they told me; “Currently we don’t have the lab reports for any of the CBD Tablets as they are a new product. However, we are currently in the process of getting them done.” So watch this space, we will of course update when we get to see them for ourselves.
Ease of Use
The first thing I noticed about these tablets is their size. They’re about 6mm across and much smaller than most CBD capsules. As a result, I found them particularly easy to swallow with a small sip of water. Of all of the ways to take CBD, this is probably the simplest way to get a precisely measured amount every time. Although you can’t measure out small specific amounts, you can easily take any multiple of 10mg.
If you want to break the tablet into small pieces, they tend to shatter unevenly, so it’s not a good idea. If you want to take a smaller amount, you could take one less frequently. For example, instead of taking 10mg three times a day, take one daily or one in the morning and one in the evening. When you feel ready to increase the measure, move up to three or more a day.
Also, the plastic jar itself is small and light enough to easily fit in a small pocket or bag for discreet use on the go. I was pleased to find that the cap is child-safe making your tablets secure and safe from your little ones. In my opinion, caps like this should be standard for any supplement or CBD product.
These tablets have no noticeable flavour making them ideal if you don’t like the bitterness of hemp. Even if one breaks apart and rests on your tongue, the only taste is a mild chalky flavour.
CBD Asylum Tablets Potency/ Effectiveness
I decided to take the maximum amount suggested on the label; three tablets, three times a day. I took the first amount in the morning with breakfast, the second with lunch and the third just before bed. This gave me a daily total of 90mg of CBD.
I didn’t notice any immediate differences, but after a day or two, I realised that my focus had improved during the day. I also began to experience better, deeper sleep.
Strangely I didn’t feel any difference to my anxiety levels or a reduction in my usual tension headaches. For me, consuming CBD orally doesn’t give me the same results as when I vape it or hold it under my tongue. Still, I was really pleased with the improvements in focus and sleep and felt that it demonstrated some potent results.
Value for Money
The standard price for 100 tablets with a total of 1000mg of CBD is £49.99. However, CBD Asylum has regular offers and is currently selling these for £24.99. At the lower price, it’s about 25p per tablet and 2.5p per mg of CBD. For comparison, Medterra’s 50mg isolate capsules are priced at £69.99 for 1,500mg, which is significantly more expensive at nearly 5p per mg of CBD.
Swallowing CBD is the least bioavailable method to take it and is likely to result in between 4%-20% reaching your blood stream for use in your body. However, the low price, lack of flavour and ease of use add to the value of these tablets and make them an attractive option. In fact, if they remain at this reduced price, mg for mg, they offer some of the best value I’ve seen.
