What is Hemp Extract?

Hemp extract is an oil derived from the stalks and seeds of the industrial hemp plant. The hemp plant is a variety of the cannabis plant species that is grown specifically for industrial uses.  This oil can be used for a variety of purposes, the most popular being consumed as a wellness supplement.

Stono Creek Apothecary uses industrial hemp isolate, which contains zero THC. Grown on organic hemp farms in the United States, and then produced in a US-based FDA-registered laboratory and manufacturing facility, our hemp extract goes through rigorous scrutiny and testing to ensure that is free of pesticides, contaminants, and unknown chemicals.  Learn more on our Frequently Asked Questions page >

How hemp extract works

How does it work?

The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receives and translates signals from cannabinoids. The ECS helps to regulate functions such as sleep, immune-system responses, and pain.

At the most basic level (tissue and cellular), the ECS is a neuromodulator. Neuromodulation is communication between neurons on a more indirect and diffused manner. Cannabinoids can be seen as mediators where feedback is given to the stimulated neurons to regulate future cellular behavior.

The diversity of the placement of the receptors indicates the importance of the endocannabinoid system for the regulation of daily bodily functions.

The human body produces some cannabinoids of its own, which are called endocannabinoids.  Hemp plants also contain cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids), and when they interact with the receptors in our bodies, they provide a natural support for the body’s ability to achieve homeostasis.

How much hemp extract should I take?

How much should I take?

Finding the right serving size for your Hemp Extract intake is an individual process.  Since everyone’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is different, serving needs can vary greatly from one person to the next.  Variables like the concentration, the weight of an individual, body chemistry, and the type of benefits you are seeking all contribute to finding the right serving size.  We recommend starting low and slow, and adjusting over time.
