What can Radicle Science do for my natural product brand?

Radicle Science validates natural product efficacy to differentiate your brand, build credibility, and drive revenue.

Our virtual, direct-to-consumer clinical trials offer the first ever path to natural product validation. Contact our team to learn more about what we do.

Why “Radicle” Science?

Radicle refers to the root of a plant, connecting to our mission to go back to the roots of mankind’s original medicines, heal with the roots of nature, and get to the root of the problem.

Radicle Science is a B-corp. What does that mean?

A benefit corporation, or B-corp, is a for-profit corporation recognized by the majority of U.S. states that is driven by both mission and profit. Shareholders hold the company accountable to produce a financial profit as well as a specified public benefit.

As a Delaware Public Benefit Corporation, our commitment to "increase public awareness of safe and affordable treatment options for the benefit of individuals who are in need of such treatments by studying and sharing objective health outcome data" is part of our corporate charter, as stated in our certificate of incorporation.
