Hemp (Cannabis sativa) essential oil is extracted using steam distillation of flowering tops and leaves of the plant. A variety of aromatic molecules or of the cannabis Sativa plant are present in this essential oil rich in terpenes, which have partially comparable effects as CBD. The CBD and other Cannabinoids are not extracted through the steam distillation process, and it is great because cannabinoids inhibit the effect of terpenes.
