From Our Farm to You
We care intensely about the results we achieve. We also care about our consumer. We too have medically fragile family members who are using our products. The reason we ventured on this journey was the lack of transparency and safety of products for those who are medically compromised. The need for quality products was affecting our family and most families we were meeting. We knew that we could do better and help families.
At Rylie's Sunshine's farm we methodically choose our plants to grow according to their expected cannabinoid content results, that will produce well in our region, and according to our needs. We are partnered with Front Range Biosciences and have recognized world known cannabinoid researchers on our team to help us achieve optimum results. Every year, a large portion of our farm is dedicated to research purposes and donated to families in need who have children with severe disabilities or disease.
We are very proud to talk about how often we laboratory test at our farm. This is part of the transparency all companies should share with their consumers. We test our soil twice a year for metal residue, pesticides and herbicides. These have always passed. We test our irrigation wells twice a year for Specific Ion Toxicity, Metals, Alkalinity, and low nutrient issues which have also always passed. Even though they both have passed we do our due diligence and continue to test because when dealing with a remediating plant it is very important to never take chances. We have learned that a majority of companies have not even done these tests once! Or some will do the tests after finding metals in their products to find out why. Then their company sells off product very cheap without transparency that families need for their safety. We are also very happy to say that because we are partnered with Front Range Biosciences we test our plants through out their entire flowering stages, after they are cured and then again after they have been co2 extracted. This too helps us understand exactly when to harvest and which strains will be best suited for certain targets, helping our families make the best choices.
All plants used in our body products are Co2 extracted on premises and the products are made on site. For our sublingual products we send our harvested plants to be extracted at a licensed food manufacturing facility for safety purposes.
We do not stop here! You will always have guidance with our products. For general guidance you can contact us through email or for more specific personal guidance we collaborate with Rylie's Smile Foundation. With Rylie' s Smile Foundation you can ask for a free educational consult for 18 year olds and under or make a small donation for an adult educational consultation. Please contact them through our site page, Education & Consultation, for this information.
Have you ever visited a hemp farm? Well now is your chance! We welcome appointments to visit us! If you do not live near our farm on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, our founder, Rylie Maedler, has a YouTube channel where she shows various aspects of the farm from taking tissue samples to how we naturally control pests without pesticides. We feel it is super important to know where your products come from and to know your farmer's practices.
