Why you can trustlogo

  • Leafreport's mission is to provide accurate, objective, and valuable content for CBD, which is why we're transparent about our review process  and  how we rate products and brands. We may receive compensation. Here’s how we make money.
  • Our review is consumer-focused only and we do not check or take a stand regarding medical effects.
  • Statements regarding CBD products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
  • Please advise your physician prior to each use of CBD.

The Bottom Line

My review of Asha Apothecary is excellent based on their organic hemp quality which is in the process of becoming USDA certified, regenerative farming methods, proprietary nanoemulsion technology, and water soluble product choices. They publish the exact potency and purity for each product through a link on each corresponding product page. Asha Apothecary offers broad spectrum potencies ranging from 25 mg up to 1000 mg, but with only a few potencies in between this range, product strength choices are somewhat limited.

They offer premium quality, organic broad spectrum CBD products that are pesticide free, and non-GMO. They are available in tinctures, softgels, edible gummies, and a topical product, and range from $19.99 to $170.99, with an average price point of $.11 per mg of CBD. This means that Asha Apothecary’s product prices are slightly higher than average, when compared to other organic brands in the market that are GMP compliant. They offer 100% free shipping on all orders, with no minimum purchases required, and they offer a 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee on all orders.

The accuracy variances for these Asha Apothecary products are split concerning potency, with one product testing above the acceptable 10% variance limit and two products testing well below the 10% limit allowed. Their products passed all standard purity testing for residuals, solvents, pesticides, E. coli, heavy metals, and other contaminants. No artificial ingredients are used in these organic, broad spectrum Asha Apothecary CBD products.

Pros: Cons:
  • Organic, non-GMO products
  • Regenerative farming methods used
  • Nanoemulsion technology used for water soluble products
  • Free shipping
  • One accuracy variance higher than 10%
  • No centralized lab testing hub
  • Slow customer service response time
  • No military discount

Methodology

  • Read our methodology for more details about ranking and our review process.

    Data Collection and Rating

    In our review process, we receive CBD products directly from the brand to personally review ourselves, so we can give you an accurate idea of the packaging, potency, taste, smell, feel, and overall experience of each product. We also discuss the company’s shipping and returns policy.
    Another important step we take is reviewing each individual product for details such as the certificate of analysis to assess the CBD level and CBD variance, THC level, and contaminants.
    We take all factors into account and give each CBD brand and each CBD product a score for each parameter.
    All of the information we collect is generated into a concise, easy to read review and put into our extensive database. Keep in mind, our reviews are never intended to substitute or act as medical advice.

    Product DataBase

    Our database collects key information for each product, including CBD product prices, potencies, third-party lab test results, flavors, additional ingredients, hemp quality, extract types, product variety, and more.
    We then use all of this combined data to give each brand and product a standardized rating out of five points.

    Brand Review Process

    There are many factors we consider when we review the quality, integrity and products of a CBD brand. We rate each brand on several factors including:

    • Transparency & accuracy. It is important that a CBD brand is forthcoming with who makes up their team, their mission, manufacturing process, and lab reports. Also, we look for the accuracy of the CBD and THC levels in the products’ lab reports.
    • Hemp quality. Hemp quality can be a deciding factor between a good CBD brand and a great CBD brand. We look for organic and sustainable farming methods with attention to detail in each manufacturing step. 
    • The variety of products they offer. We like to see several CBD product types and flavors.
    • Customer service. It is essential that each CBD company has multiple ways to connect to customer service to ask questions. We look for speedy and complete responses.
    • Price and discounts. Competitive pricing is an important aspect of being a top-rated CBD brand. We also look for discount options and ways to save on your order.

    Market Reports

    Another way Leafreport stands out from other CBD review websites is our evidence-based market reports. For each one, we purchase different types of CBD products and send them for independent lab testing to check whether their levels of CBD and other cannabinoids match the label.

    Information Updates

    Writers and editors conduct our reviews and our database on an annual basis but continually make updates throughout the year. We maintain frequent contact with brands and highlight any changes in offerings.

    The Review Team

    Our review team is made up of a wide chain of qualified CBD review writers, some with medical degrees, some with statistics backgrounds, others with ample experience in the CBD arena. Each and every one of our CBD reviews are approved by our medical reviewer before being published on our website to ensure all information is accurate. 

    Conflicts of Interest

    While Leafreport does have partnerships with many of the reviewed brands, we manage potential conflicts of interest by maintaining a wall between our content and business operations. This wall is designed to prevent our writers and the review process from being influenced or impacted by our business partnerships. This way, all reviews can provide an unbiased review that serves the interests of our users.

    About the Company

    Founded in Venice Beach, California in November 2019 by a collective group of families, agriculturalists, and scientists, Asha Apothecary believes in “the timeless bond between plants and people, because most medicines have their origins in healing natural herbs.”

    According to their website, they are committed as a company to creating a better future for all through their partnership with Mother Nature, which means that they use sustainable practices in every step of their cultivation, purification, formulation, and in the final production of their broad spectrum, organic hemp items.

    Transparency

    Independent CBD testing is an invaluable quality and safety control measure to ensure that the labeled amounts of CBD and THC are very close to the contents of each final product a customer receives. All of the products in my Asha Apothecary order except one topical were third party tested for CBD and THC potency and purity from foreign contaminants.

    Customers can view all available third party reports by scanning the QR code to view third party lab results, or through a centralized link to the independent “My CBD Test” lab report site where customers can enter the batch numbers found on the bottom of product bottle:

    Accuracy

    Using the “My CBD Test” lab reports page provided by Asha Apothecary, it was easy to match my products to the independent third party lab reports provided by entering the batch numbers found on the bottom of the bottle. All products were confirmed by third party testing to contain less than the legal 0.3% limit of THC, and all purity tests for heavy metals, residual pesticides and solvents, and yeasts and molds were conducted, according to the independent third party lab reports available at this time.

    As far as the highest accuracy variance in this order, the 750 mg softgels tested as containing 891 total mg of CBD, leading to an 18.8% accuracy variance, which is above the acceptable 10% limit. No THC was detected, and all purity tests were passed. The lowest accuracy variance was found in the 500 mg broad spectrum topical salve, which tested at 498.3 total mg of CBD, or .34%, which is far below the 10% variance limit allowed:

    Reputation

    Since their establishment, Asha Apothecary has committed to helping their customers to “Find Calm Amidst the Chaos” through the use of their organic, broad spectrum CBD products. Also, in 2020 , they formed a new partnership with Kiss the Ground, a non-profit that educates and trains U.S. farmers to consciously shift to organic, then to organic and regenerative farming methods to build up healthier soil for planting their next hemp crop.

    The regenerative farming used by Asha Apothecary cuts back on carbon dioxide, helping to reverse global warming and to produce a more pure form of hemp derived CBD oil. They are also members of the environmental groups 1% For The Planet and The Farmland Program. They recently began the process for full USDA organic certification, according to customer service:

    Manufacturing Process

    Asha Apothecary is a legal, authorized grower of premium quality, organic U.S. hemp, sourced locally from Colorado farms. Asha Apothecary’s hemp is extracted using a clean CO2 process, and then formulated with easily digestible MCT oil as the carrier for maximum bioavailability:

    After formulation, the next step is independent third party CBD testing, which is an important quality and safety control measure utilized by Asha Apothecary to ensure that the labeled potency of CBD and THC matches the contents. They conduct rigorous independent potency and purity lab testing for all of their products and post the results online.

    They offer premium quality, organic, broad spectrum CBD products that are available in tinctures, topicals, softgels, edible gummies, and bath bombs. Their products range from 25 mg to 1000 mg in strength, and are higher priced than comparable premium brands, with an average price point of $.11 per mg of CBD.

    Asha Apothecary CBD Tinctures Overview

    These organic broad spectrum tinctures are CO2 extracted, and the company suggests that consumers start with a dose of 1 full dropper, which is 1 ml. There are no visible measuring marks on the dropper, however, which makes precise dosing tricky. They are formulated with MCT oil for easy digestion. The Asha Apothecary tinctures come in a natural and a flavored mint variety, and are recommended by the company for oral or sublingual use only.

    Buying Experience

    The Asha Apothecary customer support team is available for questions via online messaging only. Customer service was messaged online three times about one product’s COA report that could not be located by batch number because it was smudged and a reply was received within 4 business days:

    All of the third party lab results available for the Asha Apothecary CBD product catalog may be located under the “Certificate of Analysis” link on each corresponding product page online by entering the batch number, as mentioned earlier. According to the company, in order to serve their customers better, all orders get free shipping with no minimum purchase required.

    A shipping confirmation email with tracking was received. The order arrived via USPS in a brown box that was not discreet, as the package is clearly labeled with the company’s name and logo. The products were securely packaged and the box contained individually wrapped items.

    This CO2 extracted broad spectrum tincture is light yellow in appearance, and oval shaped. The company recommended serving size is 1 ml, but there are no visible measuring marks on the dropper. The viscosity is a bit thicker than comparable tinctures, making application easy. The refreshing mint flavor is not overpowering, with no aftertaste. This organic product tested as containing 454.2 total mg of CBD, which represents a low .93% variance, well under the 10% limit allowed. Less than .03% THC was detected, and purity tests for foreign contaminants were passed.

    Like all of the other CBD products from Asha Apothecary, these organic capsules are all natural, vegan, and non-GMO. They are formulated using organic MCT oil for maximum bioavailability. These broad spectrum capsules are dark yellow in color, oval in shape, and have a soft texture. Each CO2 extracted capsule had 29.7 mg of CBD per 25 mg labeled capsule, for a total of 891 mg total CBD per bottle. This leads to an 18.8% variance, which is above the acceptable 10% limit. A non detectable amount of THC was confirmed by the third party lab results, and all purity tests were passed.
