Pure Science Lab Review

The founder of Pure Science Lab reportedly suffered from Crohn’s disease for 30 years before discovering the healing effects of CBD. He then put together a company dedicated to providing high-quality CBD products to the world. 

This is a really wholesome backstory that humanizes the company and helps it form a closer, more relatable bond with its customers. 

Mission / Charity 4/5

The founder of Pure Science Lab created the company after finding CBD was a plausible and effective alternative to western medicine for Crohn’s disease — a topic close to the heart of the founder, who suffered from the condition for years. 

With that said, the company does little publicly to increase awareness about the condition and doesn’t appear to donate to any charities or causes. However, you can find a military discount for active military persons and veterans. 

Hemp Source 4/5

Pure Science Lab sources its hemp from The Netherlands and manufactures its products in the USA. The hemp is also third-party tested but unfortunately can be a little hit and miss with how much information is provided – some of the test results show the full hemp analysis, whilst others show only the cannabinoid profile. 

Product Range 5/5

Pure Science Lab offers a wide range of different product options, which include tinctures, oils, concentrates, capsules, topicals, and CBD products for pets. A lot of these products have been engineered to suit more experienced CBD users as opposed to beginners.

The price put on many of these products is slightly eye-watering to the point of off-putting. 

Innovation 3/5

Pure Science Lab won’t win any medals for being truly innovative in the CBD realm, but the company does make up for that with a robust lineup comprised of some very decent products (even if the price is very steep).

Safety 4/5

Pure Science Lab posts publicly accessible Certificates of Analysis (COA), which is always a good sign with any CBD company. The main gripe we have is some of the COAs do not include evidence of comprehensive testing and includes only the cannabinoid profile. 

Customer Service 2/5

Pure Science Lab doesn’t offer a 1-800 number to make contact easier – the company also has a UK phone number if you live outside of the US. 

The company isn’t particularly great at responding to queries – in fact, we have some questions about its CBD Pomegranate Tea and the customer service reps have been uncontactable, which strikes us as quite strange.

Pure Science Lab Company Review

Article By
Daily CBD , last updated on November 20, 2020

About the Company: Pure Science Lab

Pure Science Lab is a CBD company based out of Coconut Creek, Florida, founded by Steve Pomerantz in 2014. The company has since released a huge array of products ranging from tinctures, oils, and drops to capsules, skincare products, and pet treats.

Charity donations aren’t on Pure Science Lab’s list of priorities. The company does provide a 25% military discount for active military persons and veterans – this requires you to sign up and provide relevant documentation to be eligible.

Pure Science Lab does, however, provide customers with a fantastic education and resources area on its website, which will be explored later on in this review.

The company has yet to be granted the prestigious United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Organic stamp of approval, which is something that’s looking to be rolled out to more CBD companies in the next year.

Where Does Pure Science Lab Source its Hemp?

In the same interview linked above, Pomerantz states that Pure Science Lab ships its hemp from the Netherlands due to the country being known for its farming and cultivation of only the highest-quality crops of cannabis/hemp.

The products, however, are engineered and produced in the United States – he further emphasizes that “all of his products do NOT leave his lab until they have been 3rd party tested for quality assurance and safety”.

  • Cost per mg CBD:

    $0.12 – $0.14

  • Extract Type:

    Full-spectrum

  • THC Content:

    0.235%

These large, black, soft-gel pills look slightly like licorice jellybeans. They’re one of the most discreet and familiar ways to consume CBD due to its size and ingestion method.

According to Pure Science Lab, the bottle has a total of 750 mg of hemp extract, with each of the 30 capsules packing 25 mg of CBD.

They’re available in one bottle ($79.95), two bottles ($149.95) or three bottles ($199.95).

B) Pure Science Lab CBD Hemp Extract Capsules

One of these capsules looks more like a pharmaceutical rather than a naturopathic alternative — but rest assured, the CBD content makes up for it.

The CBD Hemp Extract Capsules include pure, straightforward ingredients: a vegetable capsule and Pure CBD Hemp Oil Extract.

According to Pure Lab Science, each capsule has a hefty 100 mg of CBD, making a total of 1000 mg for ten capsules and 3000 mg for 30 capsules.

They’re available in bottles of 10 capsules ($99.95) or 30 capsules ($259.95).

2. Edibles

  • Total CBD:

  • Potency :

    15 mg/Chocolate Bite

  • Cost per mg CBD:

    $0.22 – $0.26

Pure Science Lab is targeting those with a sweet tooth with its Good Vibes CBD Dark Chocolate Bites.

Each chocolate square is reported to contain 15 mg of CBD and includes ingredients that are 100% natural, boasting no additives, preservatives, or artificial flavors. Additionally, the Dark Chocolate Bites are vegan and gluten-free.

However, there’s some confusion over how this product is marketed, particularly with what the product photo shows against what Pure Science Lab says you’ll receive.

The company claims a singular packet of chocolate bites contains five chocolate squares, yet the packaging design shows six squares.

Furthermore, the bulk buy of 30 pieces, which should total to six packets of 5 pieces, shows only five packets in the product photo – this would therefore only be 25 pieces.

We’ve emailed a company representative for clarification on this.

In the meantime, the table below will show what the company claims to offer. Once we get a definitive answer from the company about the aforementioned confusion, we’ll promptly update it.

B) Pure Science Lab Good Vibes CBD Dark Chocolate Bar

$29.95 – $79.95

In contrast to the Dark Chocolate Bites that act as a small CBD snack, the Dark Chocolate Bar serves as a proper gourmet chocolate dessert – in fact, the ingredients and production process are reported to be the same as the Dark Chocolate Bites.

This product comes in a fairly low 5 mg of CBD per square of chocolate and is available in only the one flavor presented below.

C) Pure Science Lab CBD Gummies (Jar)

If you need to feed your inner child as well as your CBD needs, the CBD Gummies provide the answer.

With each jar of CBD Gummies, you get an assortment of 30 Cola Bottles, Watermelon Slices, and the classic Gummy Worms. Each gummy is reported to contain about 15 mg of CBD, totaling 450 mg of CBD in each jar.

Unfortunately, the ingredients in this product are not natural, vegan, or gluten-free, but that’s unsurprising, given they’re brightly colored gelatin candies!

They’re available in one jar ($79.95).

D) CBD Gummies (Packet/Multiple Flavors)

This is the little brother to the CBD Gummies Jar. They come in a more extensive variety of flavors, but there’s only one flavor in each package.

The flavors include Sour Worms, Cola Bottles, Tasty Watermelons, Strawberry Delights, Rainbow Strips, and Cherry Rush. Each gummy is reported to contain 15 mg of CBD, totaling 90 mg for the six-piece option or 150 mg for the ten-piece option.

Unsurprisingly, the ingredients of these neon-colored delights are not natural, vegan, or gluten-free.

Available in six pieces ($19.95) or 10 pieces ($29.95).

3. CBD Teas

$29.95 – $79.95

  • Extract Type:

    Full-spectrum

  • Flavor:

    Pomegranate

  • THC Content:

    0.001%

For those that prefer the more refined things in life, Good Vibes CBD Pomegranate Tea is a sophisticated way to introduce CBD into your diet.

Each package is reported to contain four tea chips, with each chip containing approximately 15 mg of CBD. This adds up to 60 mg of CBD per package.

The ingredients claim to include 100% natural aged-dried pomegranate skins, hemp oil extract, and manuka honey.

It’s available in one bag ($29.95), two bags ($49.95), three bags ($69.95), or four bags ($79.95).

4. Topicals

Pure Science Lab CBD Pain Relief Gel-Kanna Freeze

The CBD Pain Relief Gel is one of Pure Science Lab’s specialty products, which may be suitable for those looking for a topical application of CBD – the company reports that this product contains 99+% pure CBD, plus 7% menthol to achieve the freezing effect for immediate pain relief and cooling.

It is available in a 2-ounce tube with 250 mg CBD ($39.95) or a 4-ounce tube with 500 mg CBD ($69.95), but you get a discount for ordering in bulk (up to three tubes at once).

5. CBD For Pets

A) Pure Science Lab CBD Pet Sweet Potato & Chicken Jerky Crunch

All living, breathing vertebrates and invertebrates have what’s known as an endocannabinoid system (ECS), a naturally-occurring internal system comprised of endocannabinoid receptors that interact with CBD and other cannabinoids found in the cannabis sativa plant.

Therefore, it’s not only humans that can ingest CBD and potential experience its effects; dogs can too. According to Pure Science Lab, these products may help canines with pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, age-related issues, and overall health and wellness – the ingredients listed are organic and veterinarian-formulated as well.

Each treat is reported to contain 2 mg of CBD.

They’re available in 50 pieces ($59.95).

B) Pure Science Lab CBD Canine Soft Chews

Surprisingly, there’s no indication of what flavor the soft chews come in, so if your dog has a specific palate, be aware. However, this serves as an alternative to the Jerky Crunch for dogs with sensitive teeth.

Each chew is reported to contain 2 mg of CBD.

They’re available in 60 pieces ($69.95) or 100 pieces ($99.95)

C) Pure Science Lab CBD for Pets Organic CBD Hemp Oil

If your pet isn’t a fan of any of the treats available, this may be a good alternative.

You need to apply the oil directly under the tongue, but I can’t think of many dogs who love having their mouth propped open and a liquid forced in.

There are no other flavors or ingredients other than hemp and MCT.

Each drop is reported to deliver 0.5 mg of CBD, with a total of 500 drops per bottle.

It’s available in a 250 mg bottle ($49.95).

6. CBD Skin Care

A) Pure Science Lab CBD Skin Cream Sensitive & Dry Skin

A lack or excess of oil causes dry skin, which can cause the face to become sore and inflamed. If this describes you perfectly, you may want to consider using this as a moisturizer. According to Pure Science Lab, this product can also provide instant relief for redness and swelling on the body.

It’s available in small (¼ ounce) with 100 mg CBD ($19.95) or large (1 ounce) with 200 mg CBD ($39.95).

B) Pure Science Lab CBD Dry Skin Oil Serum

Pure Science Lab offers this product as a more premium alternative to the CBD Skin Cream, claiming it uses all organic ingredients.

The company claims to use “premium organic Argan Oil imported from Moroccan Argan tree farm co-ops” which is “infused with [its] premium full spectrum Hemp extract and pomegranate oil”.

The serum supports healthy hair and nails. The serum also supports the relief of some skin conditions such as “eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, cracking, peeling, itching, acne, spotting, rashes, and burns”.

It’s available in 1 ounce with 200 mg of CBD ($39.95)

7. Concentrates

A) Pure Science Lab CBD Isolate

Pure Science Lab offers several pure CBD options for those looking for raw CBD ingredients. This product is claimed to be made free of GMOs and pesticides and contain 99.9% of pure CBD – this potency is incredibly high and geared towards users with experience in dabbing their CBD.

The company recommends storing this product away from heat, light, and humidity to stop it from spoiling.

They’re available in 1 gram ($39.95), 2 grams ($79.95), 3 grams ($99.95), 4 grams ($129.95), or 5 grams ($159.95).

B) Pure Science Lab 1-Gram Oral Applicator

If you’re looking for a no-nonsense application method for CBD, this may be the option for you.

They claim to use organic and straightforward ingredients with 41% of pure CBD and a total of 410 mg of CBD. The oral applicator is less than discrete, though — it looks like it belongs in a first aid kit.

It’s available in a 1 one-gram applicator ($59.95) and 2 one-gram applicators ($99.95).

C) Pure Science Lab 5-Gram Oral Applicator

If you need a larger dose of CBD, the 5-Gram Oral Applicator may be a better option for you.

The ingredients are the same as the 1-Gram Oral Applicator. It has a total of 2050 mg of CBD.

It’s available in a 5-gram applicator ($219.90).

D) Pure Science Lab 10-Gram Oral Applicator

The largest of Pure Science Lab’s applicators come in a 10-gram syringe, packing a whopping 4100 mg of CBD.

The ingredients and CBD concentration are the same as the 5-Gram and 1-Gram Oral Applicators.

The 10-gram applicator costs $349.95.

8. CBD Tinctures

A) Pure Science Lab Pure500 CBD Sleep-Aid

For a more discrete oral application option away from the applicators mentioned directly above, there are several CBD hemp oil options here that vary in size and strength.

According to Pure Science Lab, the company’s CBD is produced using a supercritical CO2 extraction process with medical-grade CO2.

Though not explicitly stated on the product page, this product contains melatonin.

Studies have shown that melatonin use shows promise in aiding those affected by jet lag and/or insomnia [1]. However, this evidence is limited and requires more in-depth trials to be conducted that proves – more conclusively – its efficacy.

It’s available in a 15 mL bottle ($119.95) – we imagine the mark-up price for such a small bottle of CBD has to do with the melatonin inclusion.

B) Pure Science Lab Pure725 CBD Hemp Oil

This CBD hemp oil (aside from the flavored 400 mg option detailed below) is the only one we recommend to beginners if you’re looking for oil without additional melatonin – the other products are way too strong for inexperienced users, as we’ll find out further below.

This company claims this product delivers 3.5 mg of CBD per drop with 200 drops per bottle. This means you get just over a month and a half of use at 3-4 drops use per day.

It’s available in a 15 mL bottle ($119.95)

C) Pure Science Lab Pure1600 CBD Hemp Oil

This product is a medium-large version of the CBD Hemp Extract you may consider if you have experience with CBD – we don’t recommend this to inexperienced users.

This product claims to deliver 4 mg of CBD per drop with 400 drops per bottle. This means you would get about 4-6 months of use at 2-3 drops per day.

It’s available in a 30 mL bottle ($229.95) – this is a very steep price.

D) Pure Science Lab Pure5000 CBD Hemp Oil

This is Pure Science Lab’s strongest CBD hemp oil product coming in at a whopping 5000 mg, which is not advisable for beginner users at all – we recommend this to more experienced users of CBD.

This product claims to deliver 12.5 mg of CBD per drop with 400 drops per bottle. This means you would get around 4-5 months of use at 2-4 drops per day.

It’s available in a 30 mL bottle ($499) – again, this is a very steep price point.

E) Pure Science Lab Pure 400 mg of CBD Hemp Extract Multiple Flavors

This product is Pure Science Lab’s weakest-strength at 400 mg of CBD per bottle, available in three separate flavor options if you dislike the taste of pure, natural CBD, which, in fact, is quite common amongst users.

The ingredients claim to be fully organic without any artificial flavors. This includes CBD Hemp Oil Extract, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic MCT Oil, and Organic Flavoring.

This product also claims to deliver 2 mg of CBD per drop with 200 drops per bottle. This means you would get less than a month and a half of use at 4-6 drops per day.

It’s available in Peppermint ($79.95), Vanilla ($79.95), or Pure ($79.95).

What Does Pure Science Lab Do Well?

1. Offers Free Shipping For International Customers

Many CBD companies only do free United States domestic shipping over a certain amount of money; however, Pure Science Lab provides free international shipping for customers who spend $249+. This is something we appreciate.

2. Well Put Together Website

One of the most important aspects of any CBD company or brand’s image is a well-structured, easy to navigate website with clear images, links, and educational resources.

Pure Science Lab’s website is all of the above. The company’s CBD Education, CBD Resources, and CBD Laws By State pages are especially impressive, providing customers with some fantastic blog posts and interesting general information.

Where Could Pure Science Lab Improve?

1. Unresponsive/Hard to Reach Customer Service

This is one of our main disappointments.

We tried querying an issue we had with the company’s CBD Pomegranate Tea and found it near impossible to reach the company – the most we’ve heard from the customer service representatives is the voicemail.

2. Extremely Expensive

There’s no denying it, Pure Science Lab’s products are very expensive. Though the company boasts high-quality, we can’t help but feel $499 for a 30 mL bottle of 5000 mg CBD oil is slightly on the extortionate side.

If you’re looking for a cheaper CBD product, look elsewhere.

3. Incomplete COAs

We just want to preface this by saying that any CBD company with publicly visible and accessible COAs gets a thumbs up from us – Pure Science Lab included.

However, some of the COAs only show the cannabinoid profile and not the other tests for heavy metals, solvents, mycotoxins, and other impurities. Once this becomes apparent across all of its products, we can give the company a double thumbs up.

Safety & Third-Party Testing

Pure Science Lab posts all of its publically-accessible, third-party Certificates of Analysis (COA) on its website. Some of the COAs have the full comprehensive testing results that show the cannabinoid profile, as well as the lack of mycotoxins, heavy metals, and solvents. However, some of the other COAs only provide the cannabinoid profile.

Though having publically-accessible third-party test results displayed openly on a CBD company website is always appreciated, we’d like to see full COAs for all products in the future.

Pure Science Lab Shipping & Return Policy

Pure Science Lab has a comprehensive Shipping & Refund Policy.

The company boldly claims to take customer satisfaction seriously with all the products tested for quality and all shipments carefully and meticulously inspected before leaving the warehouse.

However, in the case of damage during shipping, the company recommends you check your product carefully once received. If you have received a damaged product, you have 48 hours to notify the company with a detailed rundown of the damage, as well as any images you have – the info must be made in writing.

The company offers a 30-day, 100% satisfaction guarantee on all CBD hemp oil products. The returned product must come attached with the original receipt or proof of purchase. Shipping is non-refundable and you are required to pay the shipping costs yourself.

Free shipping is available for both United States domestic and international orders if you spend $149+ or $249+, respectively.

Final Verdict: High Priced, But Excellent Product Options

After putting Pure Science Lab under the microscope, the products appear to be of high quality, albeit often very expensive, especially for its oils and capsules – there are cheaper options out there on the market if you’re looking for products that are more budget-friendly

Most of the products are geared more towards more experienced users. However, you can find a small number of products suited to complete beginners/inexperienced users.

We recommend this company and its high-quality products, but mainly to those who have used CBD in the past or can afford the very high prices.
