Our Mission

At PureCannalabs, we believe that teaching the cannabis industry solventless processing is our calling. Our team of experts work hard to deliver repeatable and scalable solutions so our clients can produce truly top shelf products, ensuring profitability and long-term success.

PureCannalabs is based in Denver, CO and offers its cannabis extraction consulting services to businesses worldwide.

What Makes Us Different?

PureCannalabs was born out of a need we saw at PurePressure from our clients. A need for affordable, high impact processing and extraction consulting services.

Our team was asked repeatedly: “can you help me make better concentrates?” For them, the previous consultants that they had spoken with were either shockingly overpriced, or simply didn’t have the true expert knowledge required for their aspirations.

Our team is specifically focused on efficiency, process, and helping our clients produce very profitable, high-end concentrates. Whereas many other consultant groups have questionably broad services or only focus on one small aspect of cannabis processing, Pure CannaLabs offers the perfect middle ground.
