In 2013, the discovery of the lack of regulations and product safety led Rylie to become an advocate for legislative changes. She has been the inspiration of Rylie's Law and a strong force behind four more laws since 2013. Since 2015, she has become an international speaker helping to improve legislation world wide.
Today, Rylie's Sunshine is partnered with Front Range Biosciences to research optimum hemp plant production. The Team's focus is to supply quality hemp products. Research is a big part of Rylie's Sunshine's goal since it can improve our knowledge and legislation. We have chosen specific goals that our team agrees are lacking in this industry and need to be pushed to the forefront.
