OUR APPROACH

From plant to product

The Original Alternative is a small, dedicated and altruistic company who began our venture through the love of helping people. Our motto has and always will be ‘Health over Wealth’ and we continue to attribute our success to our passion, love and belief in the benefits of cannabis.

Starting out operating as a small mail order service from a cold single car garage, we have grown from strength to strength and with the continued support of our ever expanding customer base, we are now officially the longest trading CBD company in the UK.

We only source ethically grown- full spectrum CBD extracts, at the lowest price available, in order to provide our customers with the best value for money possible.

While continuing to expand the scale of our operation, our priorities remain the same as they were on the day of our inception. Our morals, ethics and passion for providing the highest quality extracts to benefit as many people as possible have and always will motivate our progression.

Our whole team are either family or long-term friends and all share the same passion and foresight, we believe this team ethic & company unity is one of the key contributing factors to or success.

We have and always will extend a genuine, warm and heartfelt welcome to anyone coming to visit our humble head quarters, shaking hands on the way in and hugging on the way out, it’s just how we roll.

OUR PROCESS

Growing

Our Cannabis and Hemp is all grown using an organic growing process, without the use of pesticides or artificial fertilizers on small artisan farms across Europe. Our original Indica strain (White, Red and Black Editions) are grown indoors using lights in a controlled environment for maximum cannabinoid content and yield.

The other 3 strains used to produce the Green, Blue and Purple are grown outdoors under the sun, the Green and Blue Editions are Cannabis Sativa and the Purple Edition a Hybrid. The plants are hand picked at the optimum time and individually hung at natural temperatures until completely dry.

OUR PROCESS

Processing

The oil is extracted using CO2, under low heat and low pressure conditions. Our CBD rich Oil contains the full spectrum of Cannabinoids, Terpenes, and Flavonoids as well as essential fatty acids- Omega 3,6 and 9.

During production we only combine with organic ingredients to compliment our whole plant extracts, made in our own specifically built laboratory using tried and tested techniques.

OUR PROCESS

Testing

At The Original Alternative we have every batch of each product teasted by two independant companies. They use state of the art High pressured liquid cromotography (HPLC) machines. This is to ensure that we  supply you with the highest quality extracts.We feel this is the best way to guarantee you quality and continuity of our products.
