Cannabidiol (CBD), which is derived from hemp, is used in a variety of therapeutic oils, cosmetics, tinctures, skin care and health supplements. Preliminary studies suggest it has properties that could improve health and wellness.

The Apothecary has collaborated with the Charleston Hemp Company as a provider of locally grown hemp. This will ensure consistent quality control for all of the CBD based products being offered, store owners said.
