Frequently Asked Questions

Hemp extract is an oil derived from the stalks and seeds of the industrial hemp plant. This oil can be used for a variety of purposes, the most popular being consumed as a wellness supplement.
The highest standard of extraction is the CO2 method, where hemp is put under high pressure and low temperatures. This process eliminates the need for using harsh chemicals. While this is a complex method, it is the cleanest and safest method of extraction and ensures a pure hemp extract product.  Stono Creek Apothecary hemp products use hemp extracted using CO2 extraction.

All our hemp plants are grown using proprietary hemp cultivars, grown and processed in the USA.  We DO not use Chinese, European nor Canadian Hemp.   Only USA farms utilizing sustainable farming practices and zero pesticides make it into our strict standards.  All our Hemp goes through third party testing along the process to ensure purity and consistency.  Stono Creek Apothecary Hemp Oil is extracted using supercritical CO2 extraction – the purest form of extraction – whereas many hemp oils on the market are extracted using harmful chemicals.  Our extraction process uses zero chemicals in the process ensuring the most potent and pure hemp extract on the market.  All our hemp extract is manufactured in an FDA certified manufacturing facility.

In the late 1990’s the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was discovered. The ECS is a collection of cell receptors within a human’s body, which helps to support the body’s immune system and maintain balance within the central nervous and digestive systems.  Our body’s energy, memory, metabolism, and sleep, to name a few, are all affected by the ECS. Hemp extract is being studied for how it interacts with the ECS and contributes to balance and overall well-being.

Stono Creek Apothecary products contain only Isolate Hemp Extract, which contains 0% THC.

A single serving size for each of our Sublingual Hemp Extract products is based on a full 1 ml dropper.  For someone new to our product, we recommend starting with a .25 ML serving (marked on the dropper included with your bottle) to let your body acclimate to the hemp extract.  We recommend doing this for 1-2 weeks before moving into a larger serving, continuing to increase your serving by .25 ML at a time over the course of several weeks, or until your serving size feels right to you.
Some people choose to start with just a few drops and work up even more slowly (this is known colloquially as “micro-dosing”) over a period or weeks or even months.  The important thing to remember is that everyone’s body and endocannabinoid system is different, and therefore serving needs can vary greatly from one person to the next.
We created the chart below to help you understand how many milligrams (MG) of hemp extract you will be taking in a given measurement.  This chart shows information for both our Everyday Wellness 300MG as well as our Advanced Potency 1500 MG Sublingual Hemp Extract products.

No. Our hemp extract contains 0% THC, which is the compound in cannabis that is associated with a “high”.  Further, our extract is derived from industrial hemp (bred for low THC),  not the marijuana plant (which is bred for its higher levels of THC).
