Nonnie's Nectar was founded by Ryan Beers in 2017, and was born out of a pursuit of healing, freedom from pain, and passing with dignity for Ryan's very own Nonnie. 

Nonnie suffered from epilepsy and her seizures were growing more and more prolific at the age of 96. She had tried every pharmaceutical remedy available but experienced little to no relief, and had miserable side effects from the medications. 

Although medical cannabis was already being used to treat epilepsy successfully, it wasn't an option for Nonnie because she didn't want to get high.

That's when Ryan found hemp extract and began treating Nonnie. She never had another seizure again and was able to pass with dignity.
