Of course, that is a good thing that can only make life easier for many of us who depend on medical marijuana for health reasons.

Rick Simpson Oil, Explained

The term RSO, or “Rick Simpson Oil”, refers to an extremely potent (around 90% THC) decarboxylated extract produced from the cannabis plant. RSO has zero detrimental side effects, is essentially harmless, is all natural, and is non-addictive. RSO is a cannabis product that has been on the market a relatively short time but has garnered much attention. RSO, also known as Phoenix Tears, was developed by Rick Simpson to treat his skin cancer as an alternative to surgery or chemotherapy. He soaked marijuana in isopropyl alcohol or naphtha, which separated the therapeutic compounds, forming them into a tar like dark colored liquid. This liquid he created was RSO. The liquid contained trace amounts of CBD (cannabidiol), and a high volume of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) along with other key cannabinoids, all of which when combined produced much more beneficial results through the entourage effect than CBD or THC on their own.

Rick Simpson treated his skin cancer by applying RSO topically on his affected skin area and also by taking it orally. There are thousands of testimonials about the medical success of RSO in fighting and even curing cancer. The RSO concentrates that we utilize today come from Rick Simpson’s research and discovery of the proper way to extract the potent oils and cannabinoids from the marijuana plant. His RSO breakthrough is used for the treatment of cancer, arthritis, chronic pain and diabetes, to name just a few of the maladies that his unique concentrate can help.

RSO Consumption Recommendations

Rick Simpson Oil can also be administered by vaporization via dabbing. Although patients primarily ingest it either orally or as a suppository, the versatility of Rick Simpson Oil is truly amazing and this is only the tip of the iceberg.
