Pure Science Lab: 60-Second Summary
Pure Science Lab was founded with genuine intention by a longtime sufferer of Crohn’s disease to bring CBD oil for pain and anxiety to the masses. The company has an extensive product line with all the bells and whistles, but we’re hesitant to recommend them, mainly due to their “all-natural” claim that doesn’t check out. There are also no contaminants test results to be found, so we are waiting this one out.

Pure Science Lab Brand Review
Founder Steve was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease over 30 years ago. After tapping out on pharmaceutical solutions, he turned to CBD for his health issues, and as with so many others that have done the same, everything changed. He then set out to find organic hemp farms to source CBD oil and began selling it to the medical community. Steve eventually branched out to the health supplement world, and Pure Science Lab was born.
We have deep respect for the intention behind Pure Science Lab to help people with pain and anxiety without the addiction risk or side effects from prescriptions. They hit the quality mark with domestically sourced hemp from organic farms and CO2 extraction, but they are lacking in the safety department. While they claim their hemp is free of pesticides and herbicides, they post no test results for contaminants whatsoever.
Each SKU has a cannabinoid profile verified by a third party, but that’s not enough to put our minds at ease. In order to qualify for the Safety Badge, we would need them to post results for contaminants (pesticides, residual solvents, microbials, and heavy metals) at the minimum for every batch of CBD oil used in their products.
Pure Science Lab offers the following CBD products available on their website:
- CBD Oil Tinctures
- CBD Topicals
- CBD Concentrate in Oral Applicators
- CBD Capsules and Softgels
- CBD Tea
- CBD for Pets
- CBD Gummies
- CBD Isolate Crystalline Powder
The company clearly states their mission is “to bring organic, all-natural Pure Science Lab CBD products to the world.” But their products are clearly not all-natural as they claim. We found sodium hydroxymethylglycinate in their CBD pain relief gel, a preservative that releases FORMALDEHYDE, a known carcinogenic impurity. There’s also titanium dioxide, an inorganic and dicey compound, in the aforementioned gel, the CBD sensitive skin cream, and the CBD gummies.
To further debunk their all-natural claim, the CBD gummies have artificial colors in them too, including yellow 5. Even the health and wellness novice knows to avoid yellow 5. Unfortunately, their misleading claim in their mission statement disqualifies them for the Mission Badge.
We urge consumers to take a good look at ingredients before purchasing CBD topicals in particular. Many assume that because of the natural intention behind CBD oil, companies are going to stay under that umbrella with natural ingredients. It’s often not the case.
Bottom Line – Pure Science Lab may offer CBD products of a reasonable quality, but they need to either change their all-natural claim or change their ingredients in order to be an honest vendor.
