Purple Edition CBD Paste – The Original Alternative
The Original Alternative’s Purple Edition CBD paste is a whole-plant extract containing 16.4% of CBD and CBDa in a smooth paste. This paste is produced from hybrid strains (Indica/Sativa) and contains 800mg of CBD/CBDa in a 5ml syringe.
16.4% Purple Edition CBD Paste
The Original Alternative's Purple Edition full-spectrum extract is a high-quality paste, ideal for adding to your own oil or smearing under your tongue. In each tube, you get 5ml of thick, aromatic extract, containing 800mg of CBD and CBDa. CBDa is a cannabidiolic acid, it's the precursor to CBD and both can be found in the hemp flower. Together, they work in synergy interacting with your body's endocannabinoid system.
Indica-dominant hybrid CBD paste
Made by The Original Alternative from the buds and flower of organically-grown hybrid hemp, the Purple Edition exhibits the characteristics of both Indica and Sativa plants. Different types of hemp have different combinations of cannabinoids and terpenes. This particular hybrid is Indica-dominant: approximately Indica 70% / Sativa 30%.
CO2 extracted, whole-plant, full-spectrum CBD paste provides a range of cannabinoids alongside CBD and CBDa. Whole-plant extracts contain all the cannabinoids present in the plant alongside other useful substances, including terpenes, nutrients and fatty acids.
The range of cannabinoids detected in the lab analysis include:

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.

Take a small quantity of the paste under your tongue up to 2 times per day, squeezing a small amount (the size of a grain of rice / one small mark) from the syringe onto your finger and then placing the paste under your tongue.
1ml of product = 164mg of full-spectrum CBD
The syringe has marks to show each full ml and 5 smaller marks within each ml (40mg each).
Hold for 60 seconds and then swallow. This 16% paste can also be mixed with food or drink and used topically. We recommend taking the oil before breakfast and dinner.
We suggest starting with the amount recommended above during the first week. You can increase this by up to 50% each consecutive week, until you find the right amount for you.
Because it provides an extra boost of cannabinoids, CBD tea is a very good complement and synergises very well with this CBD paste.
If you have any concerns, stop taking the product and consult with your doctor.
