CBD Brothers make their products from hemp grown in Holland and on farms local to their Guernsey facility. It is harvested and then treated to extract the cannabinoid-rich paste that is used in all their products. Samples from every batch of the final product is comprehensively tested by a third-party lab. This is to verify safety standards and confirm that the extract is full-spectrum and contains the advertised level of cannabinoids. The results of the analysis are available for every product from The Original Alternative under the ingredients tab on the product page.
To ensure all their oils meet their strict safety and quality standards, The Original Alternative use state of the art procedures and rigorous quality controls. CO2 extraction under low heat and low-pressure conditions is used to produce extracts with a vibrant mix of cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and essential fatty acids.

The Original Alternative started as a small business in founder Ben’s tiny garage. They began by producing small volumes of hemp extracts and herbal remedies for their family, friends and neighbours. It wasn’t long before news spread about their products and demand increased.
The balm is very good for easing pain and it smells wonderful! Earthy, sweet and comforting – smells just like you would expect a cannabis product to smell.
Found CBD Brothers website and ordered the balm yesterday. It arrived today less than 24 hours later.
If they'd shipped it before the last possible moment on a Friday evening then maybe it had a chance of arriving within 24 hours.
The Best CBC Brand I Have Tried – Brilliant Products
Love these guys. I have a back problem, fibromyalgia & suffer from migraines. Their range of balms are amazing and the samples are a great low cost way to help manage my health. I use them to treat leg cramps in the night & works well on plantar fascia tenderness. Highly recommended.
Ordered the 2000mg pain balm on Sunday night, arrived Tuesday morning. I had bought the balm to relieve pain and swelling to my arm due to a recent injury and 20mins after applying there is a noticeable difference. Smells great also! Would recommend.
I have been using these products for a while now and highly recommend them. The quality is second to none and I won't do without them now. My arthritic pain has gone and my asthmatic chest is clear! A fabulous company with fabulous products! Five stars
excellent company selling a fantastic product, I wouldnt go anywhere else because I know they are the very best.They have helped me enormously. I am 72 and was a bit wary of such a thing as Cannabidiol. then I tried it and my life got so much better. Back pain – gone. anxiety- gone bad stomach – gone.And its all safe to take, no naughties!
There is no ‘high’ at all, but we felt a whole lot better once we used this CBD oil.
The trouble with the CBD market today is the relative lack of regulation. It is possible for practically any firm to create oil (or other CBD products), and claim it is pure cannabidiol. Thus, we always advise you to only deal with companies that have a significant online presence such as CBD Brothers. Its Facebook page alone has over 40,000 likes, and while this is no indicator of quality, at least it spells out the fact that CBD Brothers is likely to be a reputable organization.
What Happened When We Tried Original Alternative CBD Oil?
There is approximately 500mg of CBD in the 10ml bottle we tried, which equates to 2.5 mg of CBD per drop. We elected to use four drops a day, or 10 mg of CBD total. It is important to put the drops beneath your tongue and allow about 30-60 seconds for it to absorb, rather than swallowing it immediately.
Final Verdict – 8.5/10
The CBD Balm is also a hybrid and is made from the stems and leaves of the plant, rather than the flower. It contains CBD oil, coconut oil, and bee’s wax. It is 30% CBD and costs £35 for a 30 mL tub, or £100 for a 100 mL tub.
