Sunsoil, Medterra win at ECRM’s virtual Hemp/CBD Health & Beauty Care session


Sunsoil won the Drug Store News Buyers Choice Award for its 20MG Full Spectrum CBD Softgels at ECRM’s Hemp/CBD Health & Beauty Care Virtual Session held in August. Medterra was a finalist for its CBD + Manuka Honey Cream.

The products were selected from dozens of entries submitted by participating suppliers. Buyers were able to evaluate each entry and cast their votes based on product packaging and innovation via the Drug Store News-branded Buyers Choice Awards section of the ECRM Connect platform.

“Consumers are increasingly incorporating CBD into their wellness regimens,” said “Craig Chmielowicz, SVP of Health & Beauty Care for ECRM. “Both Buyers Choice Award winners have a strong focus on quality ingredients, traceability, and ensuring that their products are sourced in the U.S. Congratulations to both winners.”

Sunsoil is a seed-to-shelf, vertically integrated organic farmer and manufacturer of full-spectrum, whole plant CBD oil that is naturally extracted and lab tested. All of its CBD oil comes from its Vermont farms where it grows USDA Organic-certified hemp without pesticides or herbicides. Sunsoil’s dried hemp is soaked in organic coconut or MCT oil then heat, pressure, and time are added to extract all the plant compounds in their naturally occurring ratios, which it says creates an oil that is simple, raw, distilled, and in a form that’s easy for the body to absorb.  

Its 20mg Softgel product is designed to be discreet, highly portable, and easy to incorporate into daily life. The pills are small and easy to swallow while providing an extremely accurate dosage, and can be added alongside other daily vitamins, supplements, or medications. As with all Sunsoil products, they contain only 100 percent full spectrum CBD extract and organic coconut oil.

Medterra seeks to make high-quality CBD products more accessible. Its products are grown and sourced in the USA, traceable from seed to sale, and rigorously tested by third parties to ensure 0 percent THC.

Its CBD + Manuka Cream combines 125mg of CBD with the healing benefits of New Zealand Manuka Honey and more than 20 botanical ingredients to help to soothe and nourish the skin. This multifunctional cream was developed to support a number of various skin applications and be a valuable addition to consumers’ everyday skincare regimens.
