The Original Alternative’s Gold Edition oil contains 300mg of CBD and CBDa in a certified organic hemp seed carrier oil. This oil is a full-spectrum Sativa/Indica hybrid with a 3% CBD concentration and comes in a 10ml bottle.
Gold Edition 300mg CBD/CBDa oil
The Gold Edition is an 3% strength CBD oil extracted from hybrid hemp (Sativa/Indica). It is a nutty oil with a smooth texture and taste, just a hint of bitterness, and a surprisingly mild aftertaste. The 10ml bottle contains 300mg of CBD and CBDa extract suspended in cold-pressed, organic certified, hemp seed oil.
In a bottle, you get approximately 200 drops of thick, luxurious oil, each containing 1.5mg of CBD/CBDa. CBDa is the perfect companion to CBD and can interact with your body’s endocannabinoid receptors.
Sativa / Indica hybrid CBD oil
Made by The CBD Brothers from the buds and flower of organically-grown hybrid hemp, the Gold Edition exhibits the characteristics of both Sativa and Indica plants. Different types of hemp have different combinations of cannabinoids and terpenes. This particular hybrid is Sativa-dominant: approximately Sativa 60% / Indica 40%.
The full-spectrum formula of the Gold Edition provides a range of cannabinoids alongside CBD and CBDa. Oils made using a full-spectrum extract contain all the cannabinoids present in the plant and have more active ingredients than CBD isolate products. Hybrid hemp strains are known for their blend of cannabinoids and terpenes that provide the entourage effect.
The range of cannabinoids detected in the lab analysis include:
The Purple Edition paste also contains trace amounts of:
More from The Original Alternative aka The CBD Brothers
The Original Alternative CBD products are also available in the following varieties:
Known as the oldest producer of cannabis extracts in the UK, The Original Alternative, started life in a small one-car garage. Initially known as the CBD Brothers, they aimed to create small amounts of oils and lotions for use by their family and neighbours. As their products became popular, they found that they needed more space. Now they are located in a purpose-built, off-grid facility in Suffolk.
Unlike other CBD brands, with the Original Alternative, you can also choose from oils made with Indica, Sativa or hybrid hemp strains. Each has a different balance of cannabinoids and terpenes, giving you a greater choice over its effects. Their hemp is grown organically on small farms in Guernsey with no pesticides or artificial fertilisers. Plants grown to produce the White, Red and Black Editions are grown under lights, and those that go into the Green, Blue and Purple Editions are grown outside in the sunlight until they are ready to be handpicked and hung dry.
To ensure they only produce products of the highest quality, The Original Alternative uses CO2 extraction under low heat and low-pressure conditions. The resulting extracts contain a rich mix of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and essential fatty acids. They are the first to admit that the nature of natural extracts means there may be inconsistencies in the products, but with the use of third-party lab testing, they maintain impressive standards. The analysis is administered by two independent companies who use state of the art high pressured liquid chromatography (HPLC) machines to detect the contents of each sample.

Because of the low CBD percentage, this supplement is suitable for beginners, those very sensitive to food supplements, and parents looking for a CBD oil suitable for children. You can start with as little as 1-2 drops per day using the suggested method of application above.
We are all different, so there’s no standard number of drops one should take. Start with the lowest recommended amount (or lower if you prefer) and increase gradually, until you find the ideal amount to suit your needs.
In all cases, do not exceed 70mg of CBD per day, this is approximately 46 drops of Gold Edition CBD oil.
