    About This Project

    Cannabis essential oils use only water in steam distillation to extract terpenoids and phenylpropanoids but lack the more desirable cannabinoids like THC and CBD. The most common theory is that cannabinoids are too heavy for steam to extract successfully. I hypothesize that since cannabinoids are volatile like terpenoids and phenylpropanoids, they can be extracted using steam distillation, and be the most effective way to intake more medicinal metabolites than heat press oils and smoking bud.
