About a month ago I discovered and started using Apis Mercantile products. I tried the hemp body butter, the full spectrum hemp tincture, and the raw orange blossom honey and let me tell you these products are all amazing! Before I get into each one- let me tell you a bit about Apis Mercantile and Apis Mercantile Hemp.
During college friends Liam and John lived in a house in downtown Charleston that was filled with friends constantly trying new and interesting hobbies. Inside they grew the devil’s lettuce and in their backyard, they grew grapes, tomatoes, mint, and peppers. They also established an apiary with two bee colonies which was John’s favorite backyard hobby of them all. In 2017 Apis Mercantile was born when John and Liam combined their passions for honey and hemp.
I discovered Apis Mercantile on instagram as a friend of John’s wife and was beyond excited to try some of the products after learning about this small business!
Let me start with the honey. I LOVE honey. I tried the raw orange blossom artisan honey. It is a single varietal or mono-floral honey, which means the honeybees have collected nectar from predominately one nectar source: orange blossoms. The high concentration of a single nectar source gives a floral finish and a citrus life to this honey. I put this honey on a charcuterie board, in my hot tea and on toast. It was delicious! I cannot recommend this honey enough! If orange blossom isn’t your flavor of choice, Apis Mercantile has six other flavors including: Raspberry, Tupelo, Southern wildflower, mid-Atlantic wildflower, New England Wildflower, and Blueberry. You can purchase the honey here.
The next product I tried was the full spectrum hemp tincture. This is an oil dropper that you use orally before bed. It contains all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in hemp. 1mL of the tincture will include 37mg of plant-based cannabinoids or 33mg of CBD. Apis Mercantile’s tinctures are made with MCT oil and propolis, a hive ingredient used by humankind for thousands of years. I have used this oil before bed for about a week straight and have been able to sleep so well! Typically I struggle with anxiety and falling asleep but this oil has been so helpful. I cannot wait to place my next order! If you’re interested in trying any of the Apis Mercantile hemp products you can purchase them here.
The final product I tried was the hemp body butter in lavender. This body butter is made with a full spectrum hemp extract, Manuka honey, royal jelly, propolis and bees wax aka packed with ingredients to rejuvenate your skin! I loved how this body butter went on my skin and I really loved the scent! My favorite part about the body butter is that it is produced in a factory that is cruelty free.
Overall, Apis Mercantile’s products receive at 10/10 rating from me. I hope you all love thees products as much as I do! I can’t wait to place another order to re-fill my current stash and try some new ones as well!
