CBD Asylum Gummies 300mg

CBD Gummies 300mgTime to tantalise those tastebuds!

CBD Asylum have just released their first foray into the delectable world of CBD gummies – offering those with a sweet tooth the perfect way to top up their intake.

While fortified sweeties are massive in the USA and continental Europe, we haven’t seen many of the UK’s big name manufacturers enter this market so far.

Needless to say, anticipation and expectation were pretty high when these popped through the letterbox, so how do they stand up to testing? Read on to discover our findings…

Why Use CBD Gummies?

Perhaps the first thing to make clear is that most people will use these sweets alongside one of the more ‘standard’ dosing techniques (tinctures, vaping, capsules, etc).

Whilst CBD Asylum is keen to point out that it’s perfectly reasonable for people to use these gummies exclusively – and there’s no reason why you couldn’t – we suspect that most people will enjoy these to just boost their intake.

Much like why so many people vape CBD to receive an instant hit straight into the bloodstream, edibles serve in much the same way. Not everyone likes vaping so these gummies provide an excellent (and delicious) alternative option.

The problem with using vaping to ‘top up’ your CBD levels is that it’s very difficult to measure your intake. At best, you can only really make an educated guess depending on the number and length of your draws, which of course becomes even more tricky depending on the strength of the e-liquid.

These CBD Asylum gummies weigh in at exactly 10mg CBD each (300mg per pot of 30 sweets), so if you’re keeping to a tightly controlled dosing schedule you’re going to be able to measure this very precisely.

10mg is a pretty fair whack and more than most similar products on the market tend to contain. This is why it’s entirely plausible that some people could use gummies exclusively to ingest their dose (CBD Asylum suggest 1-3 per day for those who opt to do so).

Full Spectrum For Extra Efficient Absorption

Best Place To Buy

Alongside that impressive 10mg of CBD, these gummies also happen to be made from full spectrum (“whole plant”) extracts.

An increasing body of evidence suggests that these style of extracts that retain many dozens of additional cannabinoids are much more effective at absorbing into the body.

Packed full of additional amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, they seem more able to bind with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system.

Anecdotally speaking, we can say with confidence that people who find little success with isolate varieties often find that full spectrum is considerably more beneficial.

This is an interesting factor and one which makes the CBD Asylum gummies really stand out from the crowd. Not only do they deliver a quality amount of CBD per serving, but they use truly outstanding quality extract full of these essential additional qualities.

The majority of similar edibles on the market only use isolates, and while they may help some people we’d back full spectrum ahead of those any time.

As with all their products, these gummies contain only a minuscule trace of residual THC that is far below the legal maximum. You’ll be safe to perform any daily activity and have zero chance of failing a drugs test.

Now On To The Taste Test!

OK, so far we have seen that these gummies are a step ahead of the vast majority of other edibles out there. But how do they taste?

Well, we’d compare them to a kind of super fruity and citrusy fruit pastille. They’re not overwhelmingly sweet and have a surprisingly refreshing zestiness that leaves a very tangy aftertaste.

For those who struggle with the taste of full spectrum oils, be assured that you can’t notice even the vaguest hint of muggy hemp. To all extents and purposes, these are just very tasty sweets!

Each gummy weighs in at 40 calories, and are designed to be slowly chewed and savoured. We’d recommend you try and take your time doing so.

Just like a tincture oil, the primary way to ingest the CBD packed inside your sweet is to allow it to pass through the pores underneath your tongue. You’ll still be absorbing the residual elements through your intestines once it’s been swallowed, but oral absorption is simply more efficient thanks to it bypassing the digestive tract and entering straight into the bloodstream.

CBD Asylum Peppermint CBD Oil 1500mg

,

Peppermint CBD Oil 1500mgLet’s face it – not everyone enjoys the distinct “hempy” taste of full spectrum CBD oils.

CBD Asylum have made it their mission to assist as many people as possible to enjoy the potential benefits of premium grade extracts, and this time they have really thought outside the box!

This peppermint infused MCT-based oil only delivers an aftertaste. When it’s held underneath the tongue you’ll not taste a thing!

But is this just a novelty product, or a real potential game-changer for the UK CBD market? Let’s find out…

1500mg Of Superb Full Spectrum Extract

Before checking out the performance let’s quickly discuss what probably drew your attention to this oil.

As most will know, 1500mg (in a 10ml bottle) falls firmly into the bracket of high strength CBD oils. Most people would be advised to start off with a lower strength when establishing their effective dose.

For those who do need this level of concentration you should always look for full spectrum varieties. These retain many more cannabinoids and terpenes (all non-psychoactive) that deliver an ‘entourage effect’, making the CBD more capable of binding into the body’s endocannabinoid system.

A growing body of scientists believe that isolates – regardless of their strength – are more prone to simply passing ineffectively through the body. We’re still slightly on the fence about that, but are confident from anecdotal and personal experience alone that full spectrum is better.

What you are getting here is 1500mg of seriously top quality whole plant CBD oil, that can even be upgraded to a 2500mg strength for an additional £20 (what a bargain!).

For the vast majority of people, 1 or 2 drops of this a day ought to do the job better than the vast majority of alternatives to be found anywhere on the current market.

CBD Asylum Peppermint CBD Oil 1500mg Review

CBD Asylum claim that their extracts contain zero THC. We’ll take that with a slight pinch of salt, especially considering that this is a full spectrum oil and will naturally contain a slightly higher residual compared to an isolate. But in all honesty, that doesn’t matter in the slightest.

The amount of any THC retained in this oil is going to be a ‘trace’ at best, and hundreds of times below the government’s legal maximum of 0.2%.

All of CBD Asylum’s oils are derived from 100% organically grown plants subjected to eco-friendly CO2 extraction methods. Vegan and vegetarian friendly, these oils are as good as it gets!

MCT Base For Additional Efficiency

Best Place To Buy

We were interested to learn that CBD Asylum opted to use MCT oil in this product. A growing army of industry experts is steering in this direction now instead of the more typical and traditional olive/coconut oil bases.

Used widely across the food and supplements industries, MCT oil is believed to provide a considerable additional boost to absorbing extracts into the body. With tinctures, this is especially useful, as the goal is to get that CBD straight into the bloodstream without passing through the digestive tract (which is believed to reduce absorption efficiency by between 25-40% – depending on who you believe).

While the aforementioned ‘purists’ may struggle to gravitate towards MCT, in our opinion if it assists the body in absorbing the natural goodness of a top class extract then why the devil not? Sometimes science does tend to offer advantages, and that’s certainly true in this case where we are dealing with very high strength compositions.

The Taste Test!

Our tasting panel happens to actually adore the taste of raw CBD oil, so it was quite a novelty to take a couple of flavoured drops to start with.

After a couple of minutes to allow for the oil to absorb, it took one swallow to release a very elegant and refreshing peppermint taste. Unlike many minty kinds of flavours, this was actually really subtle and lasted for about four or five minutes before fading away.

It was a peculiar – but also very moreish – sensation, and one that we look forward to seeing extended to other products in the CBD Asylum range. Very impressive indeed, so thumbs up for that guys!

CBD Asylum CBD Capsules 300mg

,

Our regular readers may have noticed that CBD Asylum has been hitting the higher concentrated products with their recent releases.

While that’s all well and good for those who need that level of intake, the truth is that from our experience most people don’t.

It’s great to see that they have finally gotten around to releasing 300mg CBD capsules (30 capsules at 10mg each).

They recommend that people take 1-3 per day, a figure that seems sensible to us, and that makes this ideal for people who want to try and find that ‘sweet spot’ dosage. Simply start with 10mg, give it a few days and adjust dosage (if and when required).

But Aren’t Capsules “Not Very Good”?

It depends on who you ask. Until recently there was a consensus that capsules may be inappropriate for taking CBD as they obviously need to pass through the liver and gut. Quite how much potency is eliminated due to this again depends on who you listen to – we’ve seen estimates from 5% to 70%!

On the flipside, capsules remain perhaps the most popular method of ingestion, especially for longer-term users. If it wasn’t doing them some good, then why would they continue to take them? Whatever your opinion, there’s no doubt that capsules are easy and can be popped down alongside your other daily vitamins and medications.

It’s worth noting that CBD Asylum only use HPMC capsules for their products. These are the same linings you’ll find in top-of-the-range multivitamins and are considered the best for rapid breakdown and absorption into the bloodstream.

CBD Isolate Capsules

Each tub (which costs £29.99 at the time of writing) contains 30 capsules, each containing 10mg of CBD. The capsules are made from only the finest quality ingredients.

CBD Asylum Are Isolate Specialists

Best Place To Buy

Another thing regular visitors may have noticed lately is our waving the flag in appreciation for full spectrum products ahead of classic isolates.

From what we’ve heard anecdotally, there are still many thousands of people reporting good experiences with isolates of all levels of strength. We’d instead suggest that if isolates are your thing, look for quality ahead of strength.

CBD Asylum manufacture their range of products from only 100% organic hemp, which is extracted in an appropriate natural manner. They use eco-friendly CO2 processing to completely remove any risk of contamination at any stage. Their products are certified as vegan-friendly and non-GMO.

One other reason why we always appreciate the near obsessive manner they produce their extracts is their incredibly low THC content. The maximum legal UK level for hemp derived products is 0.2%.

While CBD Asylum claim to not have even a microbe of THC in their range, we’ll settle on somewhere extremely close to 0%! Either way, there’s no chance of anyone getting ‘high’ or failing a drugs test due to taking this entirely non-psychoactive product.

Third Party Tested

Something everyone – and especially those new to the scene – ought to always look out for are high-grade vendors who are third-party monitored.

CBD Asylum fully fit into this profile, and while we’d like them to follow the example of other manufacturers in their tier by offering result breakdowns online, their friendly customer service will provide this at request.

We have no qualms whatsoever about the quality and integrity of this product.

Firefly 2 Vaporizer Review

When the original Firefly vaporizer hit the scene a few years ago it was a complete game changer.

Not only was it specifically designed to be easier to clean (at last!) but also used dynamic convection that allowed it to heat up and be ready to use within a few seconds.

Suddenly, there was a device on the scene that allowed people to enjoy dry herbs almost like they would a liquid/cartridge style vape pen.

However, there were problems with the battery life, weight and even longevity of the original model – so much was expected when Firefly 2 flew through our letterbox to address and improve upon these essential factors.

Portability & Style

Straight from the box, you may seem a little underwhelmed. Make no mistake – this is a very compact vaporizer and weighs in at around a third less than the previous model.

That being said, it feels very natural in the palm and should automatically raise the eyebrows for anyone wanting that added ‘stealth’ factor! Nicely finished with a stylish and almost retro look, it easily slots together with a reassuringly solid click.

Having such smoothly engineered components will prove a godsend when it comes to cleaning – one quick scrub on all sides and you’ll be done in a minute at most.

Whilst it may not look especially imposing, this is a very nicely crafted vaporizer that highlights how many rival products can be so excessively over-engineered.

So overall, the device is pretty impressive and is sure to appeal to those who like to combine a low-fuss approach to dry herb vaping with a little flashy style!

Firefly 2 Colours

The device is available in a range of 8 different colours: Black, Red, Blue, Gold, White, Jet Black, Oak, and Zebra.

Battery Reliability

OK, we knew that the Firefly 2 was going to look the part, but how about that ever so important battery life?

We’re genuinely delighted to report that this edition compares very favourably indeed. Expect it to heat up within 5 seconds on average – we managed 3 seconds with the lowest 340°F temperature – which is quite frankly much better than anything else currently on the market.

By the time it takes to click the ready button in your pocket and raise the mouthpiece to your lips, you’ll be able to enjoy a long and delicious draw. That’s nothing short of game-changing!

But what about longevity? The Firefly 2 has made considerable improvements here. Depending on your usage, we’d rate this as being good to use consistently over a session for 1.5 hours. Used independently over the day, and there’s no reason why there still won’t be plenty of juice left come bedtime.

Charging from dry takes about 45 minutes, making it once again considerably quicker than most of the current opposition.

Compared to the Firefly 1, we’d rate their claim that this edition offers 100% more power as being pretty much spot on.

From a full charge expect to get at least 40-50 ‘proper’ draws on a medium setting. Each draw powers on the unit for 30 seconds, so that equates to about 20 minutes before the battery croaks. While that may not sound a huge amount of time, trust us – it’s more than plenty.

Oh, and for those who cannot face the prospect of their Firefly 2 running dry – you can easily pick up cheap spare batteries that can be interchanged in seconds.

Intelligent Heating = Tremendous Vaping!

Best Place To Buy

The Firefly 2 offers six different heat settings, with the maximum 500°F really only going to be used by those enjoying some concentrates (you’ll burn your herbs at that intensity).

Users can easily change the temperature settings by either the straightforward control panel or by using the smartphone-enabled app for greater personalisation.

Whether or not you want to play about with these settings is entirely up to you, but we found that 420°F offered the finest balance between quality vapour and prolonging the burn of our stocks. On that note, the chamber is quite small at 0.10 grams so remember to pack it in nice and tight.

The heating is controlled by a 50-watt element which runs through to the borosilicate glass vape bowl. “What does that mean”, I hear you cry! Well, in layperson’s terms, what that means is your herbs/wax/concentrate is going to pass through an inbuilt system that allows for a consistently cool and clean vape.

Over a full session – running the battery from full to empty – we didn’t experience one dry/hot hit. Cloud production can also be managed using the manually adjustable airflow dial. We’d recommend you check this out if you’re planning on stealthier vaping.

Whichever configuration you settle on, be assured that the clouds that the Firefly 2 produces are simply sumptuous.

DaVinci IQ Vaporizer Review

It seems pretty remarkable that despite it nearing 3 years since the DaVinci IQ first hit the scene, it remains one of the best portable vaporizers in the UK.

Revolutionary at the time due to it being smaller, sleeker and more powerful than most rivals on the market, it still sets the benchmark for what constitutes a truly world-class vaporizer.

Yet the gulf has certainly narrowed in more recent times, so does the DaVinci IQ still hold it’s own against increasingly competitive alternatives? Let’s find out!

Still Offering Outstanding Portability & Build Quality

One of the reasons why this device has remained so popular is for its sheer handiness.

It’s a little heavier than the more recent PAX models (weighing in at 145g) and there are now smaller models out there for those who like super stealthy vaping. It’s still comfortably ‘pocket-sized’ and easily conceals in most people’s palm.

What the DaVinci IQ still leads the market on has to be that ever so beautiful design quality. So many times you’ll read about how vaporizers may be ‘elegant’ or ‘precision engineered’ – the truth is that these genuinely do apply to this device.

Sometimes you just need to hold a vaporizer to gauge the craftsmanship that has been put into it – and in this case, Leonardo would be very impressed indeed!

It has a sturdy and slightly dense feel which makes us confident that it’d survive a little rough treatment – but that’s not advised. After all, who wants scratches on that fine brushed metal finish?

Overall, the DaVinci IQ still feels like the bee’s knees compared to much of the more contemporary opposition. Given how far dry herb vaporizers have advanced recently, that’s big praise indeed.

Batteries & Longevity

The all-important question when it comes to this style of a vaporizer is how reliable that battery charge is going to hold. Longevity (or lack thereof) is a key factor for anyone who intends to be truly taking their dry herbs on the road.

Funnily enough, this is one of the points that has made this such an enduringly popular device. Not only is the DaVinci IQ powered by 18650 batteries that ought to be enough to last 2-3 hours depending on your temperature settings and usage habits, but these are easily replaceable.

Many people think that just means “oh, I won’t need to buy a new unit when this one conks out” and neglect that fact that this allows for spares to be carried in on your person whenever you wish. When your installed battery starts to weaken, just switch it over.

Providing you remember to recharge it regularly you can’t go wrong, and even better replacements are cheap! So many rival products still neglect how essential replaceable batteries are – and in this case, it takes literally 5 seconds to perform.

Batteries are the key to longevity – and with a unit of this quality, there’s no reason that it could not hypothetically last for several years at least.

Newbies to dry herb vaping just need to be aware that the better you maintain and clean your device, the longer they will last. In this instance, the DaVinci IQ is no different. Use the supplied cleaning kit and be sure to read up on effective care methods.

Performance & Smart Path Technology

Best Place To Buy

A 0.30g chamber capacity may not sound huge (it’s more than enough by the way) – but as with most high-quality vaporizers, the method of heating is the key to how you will enjoy your herbs.

This pure conduction-based heating element allows for an extremely balanced ceramic-based roast that slowly accentuates the flavour of your herbs. That’s right – the taste will become richer and deeper the more you burn, and for routine vapers that’s nothing short of gold dust.

Capable of heating between 249°F and 429°F depending on your preferences, it heats up within 16 seconds at most and will deliver straight from the first draw. On a side note – charging the battery takes around 2 hours from empty.

As for the overall quality of the vape? Well, if there’s one reason alone why this is such a popular device then it absolutely must be this.

Over many months as personal users of this product, never once have we encountered a dry hit even after evening long shared sessions that have worked through several batteries.

It’s almost spookily reliable, and you can enjoy it safely thanks to the in-built temperature control safeguards and automatic cut off levels/limits.

There are many excellent dry herb vaporizers on the UK market nowadays that deliver on parity with what the DaVinci has offered long beforehand. It’s simply a perfectly cool and smooth dry herb vaping experience, there are no other words that do it suitable justice.

The Smart Path technology allows users to switch between 4 pre-programmed heating settings. You can also personalize them exactly to your taste via “Precision Mode”. These can all be managed via the app which is refreshingly easy to use and by no means overcomplicated.

Once you’ve determined what works best for your vaping practices, the app mainly serves as a way of adjusting how your DaVinci IQ handles things such as LED brightness, vibration alerts, and session duration. You can easily get by without using it, but that’s the only way to adjust such ‘stealthy’ functions.

Technical Specifications

Dimensions 9cm x 4.2cm x 2.4cm
Temperature Range 249°F to 429°F
Chamber Capacity 0.3g
Heating System Conduction
Heat-up Time 16 secs

Video: How To Use The App

Some Tips:

  1. Compact your herbs as tight as possible.
  2. Give them a stir halfway through your session (a tool is provided as part of the kit).
  3. Experiment with temperatures – this is a high powered device and can handle whatever you wish!
