You will never believe what we taught algae to do.

With microalgae, we can essentially create any plant-derived ingredients, sustainably and at scale.

Introducing our first product to market: CBC (Cannabichromene)


Through  our patented biotechnology platform, Purissima has proven scale production of a key minor cannabinoid, CBC or Cannabichromene.  CBC is a non-intoxiacting phytocannabinoid and is one of hundreds of cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, but only exists in nominal concentrations. Cannabis plants first produce CBGA, the precursor to THCA, CBDA and CBCA. CBCA then 'matures' into CBC in a process called 'decarboxylation' as a result of exposure to heat, UV light or enzymatic processes.


Both CBC and CBCA compounds are bioactive and have broad beauty, health and wellness applications.


CBC can soothe sebaceous glands that secrete excessive oil


CBC exhibits potent activity against acne-causing bacteria and several Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) strains


CBC blocks sensation of pain via direct interaction with pain-sensing receptors in human skin
