American Apothecary was founded in 2019 and has since grown to become one of the nation's largest online suppliers of pharmacy grade CBD Oil products. Our main focus from the beginning was CBD oil tinctures, and we have expanded our product line to incorporate other CBD products, too. The vision has always been to revitalize independent community pharmacy by providing innovative revenue solutions that strengthen the financial positions of our pharmacy partners.
We have invested in a patent-pending nanotechnology which puts cannabinoids in their most bioactive state giving maximized benefits for users. By breaking down the large lipid balls into a smaller sized particle at the molecular level, our nanotechnology enables a quicker absorption, faster onset and improved efficiency comparative to any other pharmacy grade CBD products on the market.
Our mission continues to be to improve the financial viability of independent community pharmacy by offering alternate sources of revenue outside of traditional dispensing. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you!
Dr. Anthony Caracci, Pharm.D., is the COO of an independent pharmacy corporation with stores located in northern Kansas and Nebraska. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy in 2010 and started his career in community pharmacy. After spending four years at a large chain pharmacy, an opportunity surfaced to build a specialty pharmacy from the ground up. He accepted the position as Vice President of Pharmacy Operations and began his entrepreneurial journey. With year-over-year revenue growth the pharmacy expanded into sterile compounding and he oversaw the construction of a multimillion-dollar facility that included a sterile compounding room. Two years later an ownership opportunity emerged that led him into his current position. With intimate knowledge of the pressure that independent community pharmacies are facing, he set-out to help satisfy an unmet demand “To improve the financial viability of independent community pharmacy by offering alternate sources of revenue outside of traditional dispensing”.

Cydney E. McQueen, PharmD, completed a two-year post-graduate Fellowship in Natural Product Information and Research that focused on application of evidence-based medical decision-making principles to herbals, supplements, and other complementary medicine practices. Dr. McQueen is an author, editor, and reviewer for several herbal and dietary supplement information resources and pharmacy textbooks. The training and knowledge of herbal and natural products is very applicable to the medical use of cannabis and cannabinoid medicines. Once the extent of the sustained and growing US interest in this area was clear, Dr. McQueen became educated in the clinical use of cannabis medicines and has been teaching, speaking, and writing in these topic areas since 2014. Ongoing research and teaching interests emphasize product quality concerns and the appropriate education of patients who choose to use CBD or other cannabinoid medicines. Two surveys she conducted in the Kansas City metropolitan area revealed that both pharmacists and pharmacy students were lacking much of the necessary knowledge to be able to help patients make informed decisions about the safe and effective medical use of cannabis and cannabinoids.
