FARMACEUTICALRX joined Solevo Wellness at the beginning of May 2020. FARMACEUTICALRX received their grower/processor license in March 2019 and were fully operational in September 2019. They are based in Farrell, PA and operate out of a renovated steel mill.
We asked the FARMACEUTICALRX team what inspired them to get into the business. Here’s what they had to say:
“FARMACEUTICALRX approached the medical cannabis market from the healthcare and scientific perspectives of its founders and key executives, differentiating it in the industry. Through innovation and transparency we are able to bring organic growing methodology and clean, effective medical cannabis products to the forefront. To achieve this, our team consists of healthcare professionals, attorneys, scientists, physicians, pharmacists, nutrition experts, operations and retail specialists, security and IT professionals, and recognized cannabis industry leaders recruited from across the nation.”
"I have spent the majority of my career developing a diverse portfolio of healthcare businesses. After several healthcare crises with loved ones, I realized that cannabinoids and terpenes are just another category of therapeutics that have been helping people for centuries but which have remained largely undiscovered from a scientific perspective. This realization that my experience as a professional and my perspective as a person positioned me uniquely to start a company that could advance cannabis therapy options for patients in my home state, and someday around the world, was my inspiration for founding FARMACEUTICALRX.” - Rebecca Myers (Founder & CEO)
FARMACEUTICALRX focuses on preserving the natural integrity of the plant from cultivation through extraction. Their living soil growing method helps mimic mother nature’s optimal conditions for their plants. FARMACEUTICALRX preserves the trichomes on their dry leaf by only handling stalk and stems when trimming. This helps to prevent removing and damaging trichomes.
In addition to their dry leaf, FARMACEUTICALRX focuses heavily on their Live Resin Cartridges and Rick Simpson Oil (RSO). Their Live Resin Cartridges contain an average of 6.64% (66,000ppm) terpenes. They never use any additives for their cartridges and only use cannabis derived terpenes.
Strains specific to FARMACEUTICALRX include Archangel, Honey, Sage, UK Cheese, Wedding Cake, and will be introducing many more as they continue to develop their large genetic seed library.
At Solevo, you’ll find FARMACEUTICALRX in our selections of cartridges, concentrates, RSO and tinctures. Keep an eye out for updates on our social media and email for new products from FARMACEUTICALRX coming to Solevo.
We asked FARMACEUTICALRX what makes their specialty area unique. See below!
“Living soil works with biomimicry. What that means is, we strive for the plants to grow in an environment exactly like they would get in nature. Our plants are not force fed, unlike the plants being pumped full of synthetic fertilizers that are told what they are going to eat. We set our plants up with the nutrients in the soil so that they can pick and choose what they want to keep them happy!” - Jamie Hubbard (Director of Cultivation)
“Utilizing the living soil growing method, we are choosing to cultivate more sustainably. We rely on the health of the soil to help the plant through its growth cycle instead of relying on synthetic chemicals to boost our yields. We utilize organic granular inputs like Alfalfa meal, Humic acids, Bat guano, etc. in our cultivation method which helps build healthy soil. In return, the soil plays a major role in the success of the plants. Our plants share a bed of soil co-living nutrients. We recycle our soil and use it time and time again. At this point, we have almost a full year cultivating in the same soil in our flower beds.” - Jamie Hubbard (Director of Cultivation)
At Solevo Wellness, we’re accountable to our patients for providing informed and compassionate care and access to the highest quality of medical marijuana products. As such, we choose to work with growers who share a similar passion for quality. See below for what the FARMACEUTICALEX’s team said when we asked them how they ensure the highest possible degree of patient satisfaction.
“FARMACEUTICALRX is focused on innovation and consistently bringing effective medicine to the market for patients. We are constantly looking at our patient base for their feedback to improve our products and processes.”
FARMACEUTICALRX goes above and beyond by adding additional information to their labels such as an extensive terpene profile. This is provided with every strain and product.
They also calculate the total THC for their patients. The purpose of this calculation is to provide the patient with an accurate representation of the amount of "active" THC that can be derived from a medical dosage.
In addition, given the wide variety of cannabis strains and the spectrum of cannabinoid and terpene profiles, they prefer not to classify their strains simply as indica, sativa, or hybrid. They classify their strains on the effect that you will likely experience to help patients better identify what they need to manage their symptoms at different times (Enhance, Inspire, Harmony, Calm, Restore).
Some future product development at FARMACEUTICALRX include solventless, CBN tincture, capsules and more.
Solventless concentrates will provide options for patients that prefer products that have not been processed using hydrocarbons. They feel it is a pure form of cannabis-based medicine because no solvents are used in the extraction process. Solventless products are made using different combinations of water, temperature and/or pressure.
FARMACEUTICALRX sees the value and need to provide their patients with a product that could promote healthy sleep and recovery, which are states that many patients with chronic illness struggle to achieve. This is why their future product development goals include products with higher levels of minor cannabinoids, such as CBN, to support they healthy management of symptoms that patients experience.
