Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Upon opening the bottle, these NutraCanna CBD Dissolvable Daytime Tablets (10mg) smell sweet and potently minty. The scent is more spearmint than peppermint (true to the label) but smells a bit more like a sweet mint than a true spearmint. It isn’t overpowering or cloying, two of our pet peeves where mint-flavored products are concerned. There’s something reminiscent of the dentist’s office in the smell, possibly due to the sweetness in the stevia leaf extract present in the tablets.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
The flavor of the tablets is minty and refreshing if a little intense. The label claims spearmint, and this is mostly accurate, though we found it to be more like a sweet mint (also known as Yerba Buena, a popular cultivar of spearmint) than true spearmint. It straddles that space between lively peppermint and cooling spearmint, with a hint of sweetness that’s reminiscent of vanilla to round out the flavor.
Because the tablets are mint flavored, you might not want to take them around your morning glass of OJ. We recommend popping one or two tablets after you brush your teeth in the morning (you do that, right?), allowing them to dissolve like normal, and then washing everything down with a glass of water. You’ll get a boost of hydration and help clear your palate for whatever you choose to eat or drink for breakfast quickly. If left on its own, the flavor dissipates within 5-10 minutes of dosing.
The tablets are about half an inch in diameter and light green in color, with a whitish cast. The color is oddly similar to green tea mochi or a matcha latte. Each tablet is circular and is scored down the center, allowing you to use a blade (or even a credit card or other edge) to break it in half if you prefer.
When placed under the tongue as instructed, the tablets begin to dissolve in saliva, allowing the CBD to take effect quickly. As the outer portion of the tablet dissolves, the texture becomes a big granular and potentially a little dusty. If you have this issue, try having a sip of water to help the tablet dissolve more quickly.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
Within about 15 minutes of taking the tablets, we felt a pleasant boost in focus and energy. Unlike the rush provided by caffeine, we felt a general sense of calm and wellbeing. Even for our testers who take CBD at substantially higher doses (>100mg per day) for therapeutic reasons, the effects of these tablets were notable, even if not sufficient on their own for complete symptom relief.
The effects are stronger if two tablets are taken simultaneously, and taking two won’t give you a case of the jitters like an extra shot of espresso would. Our testing group was pretty evenly split: some of us felt fine with one, while others preferred the extra boost in symptom relief provided by a second tablet. Ultimately, it’s a matter of preference. Two tablets will produce stronger effects, but if one is good for you, then stick to a single tablet.
The relatively lower dose of CBD in the tablets make them easy to integrate into an existing CBD regimen. That said, our testers accustomed to taking lower doses found these tablets sufficient on their own to provide daytime relief. We found the tablets to be effective for about 4-6 hours, enough to carry you through your morning in comfort and ease you into the afternoon.
Best used for
We like these tablets as a fast-acting dose of CBD to start your day. Since they take less time to kick in than CBD absorbed through the digestive system, they make a good alternative to vaping, smoking, or dabbing CBD for people who cannot or choose not to use inhalation methods. As the tablets are formulated with organic CBD isolate rather than full-spectrum extract, they’re a safer option for people who need to avoid THC for personal, professional, or legal reasons.
Because of the way they’re formulated, these tablets are best suited to daytime use. They probably won’t keep you up at night, but stick to the morning or mid-afternoon use to be safe. If you find yourself in need of a pick-me-up in the afternoon, feel free to reach for another tablet or two — they’ll be out of your system in time for bed.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
As a fast-acting product, the Wake tablets provide speedy symptom relief but don’t last all day. To keep your symptoms at bay for longer stretches, we recommend pairing this product with one absorbed through the digestive tract, like a gummy or an oil. One of these longer-acting products will provide all-day relief while the tablets take action quickly.
If you’re in need of targeted symptom relief at the site of pain, we recommend a topical product like the CBD Cooling Pain Cream by Nutra Canna. The CBD in the cream will target inflammation, pain, and swelling from the outside while the tablets work from within for all-around symptom relief.
Each tablet contains 10 mg of organic CBD isolate. The bottle contains 30 tablets for a total of 300 mg of CBD per bottle. One bottle costs $42 even, which works out to a per-milligram cost of $0.14 — pretty solid when compared to competing products of similar quality and dosage. Each 10 mg dose costs $1.40 which is, again, comparable to similar products.
Next to other CBD products of comparable quality, dosage, and formulation, we like these little dudes. They’re effective, potent, and pure — and they meet our CBD Buyer’s Guide criteria.
