16.4% Purple Edition CBD paste
The CBD Brothers 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 1 ml of thick, aromatic extract, containing 164 mg of CBD and CBDa in whole-plant extract. 3 syringes provide a total of 492 mg 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 CBD Brothers 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 includes:

CBD Brothers - aka The Original Alternative
Known as the oldest producer of cannabis extracts in the UK, the CBD Brothers (aka The Original Alternative), started life in a small one-car garage. Initially, 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.
They are unique in that you can choose CBD products made with Indica, Sativa or hybrid hemp varieties. Each has a different balance of cannabinoids and terpenes, giving you a greater choice over composition.
Their hemp is grown organically on small farms in Guernsey with no pesticides or artificial fertilisers. Plants grown to produce the Silver, 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 dried. The Gold Edition is grown in their Guernsey greenhouse.
To ensure they only produce products of the highest quality, CBD Brothers 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 slight differences from batch to batch, but with the use of third-party lab testing, they maintain impressive standards. The analysis is administered by two independent companies that use state of the art high pressured liquid chromatography (HPLC) machines to detect the contents of each sample.
As of 2023, CBD Brothers have an active Novel Foods application with the Food Standards Agency. This ensures that their supplements can remain on sale legally in the UK.
- Start by squeezing a small amount (one small mark on the syringe) of CBD paste onto your finger.
- Using your finger, smear the paste under your tongue.
- Hold for 1-2 minutes so the CBD can be absorbed into your blood
- Swallow any remaining paste and wash down with a drink of your choice.
The syringe has a mark to show the full 1ml and 10 smaller marks of 0.1ml.
1 ml = 164mg of CBD/CBDa
0.1 ml contains approx. 16.4mg of CBD/CBDa.
Who is CBD Brothers CBD paste suitable for?
Because of the higher CBD concentration, this supplement is not suitable for beginners and those who are sensitive to food supplements. If you are new to CBD, we would recommend starting with a CBD oil in drops or spray form. This is because you can start with a much smaller serving and experiment to find the precise amount to suit your needs.
