Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is a highly concentrated cannabis oil that may be ingested and often contains 75 percent THC or more. This kind of concentrated oil is usually created with powerful Indica strains, giving users a sleepy full-body sensation rather than a cerebral one.
Rick Simpson is a Canadian who was instrumental in developing full-extraction cannabis oil. He was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, a kind of skin cancer, in 2003. He decided to try treating his disease with full extract cannabis oil after hearing about the research from the National Cancer Institute that discovered THC to destroy cancer cells in mice. He applied it directly to the damaged region and covered it with a bandage.
WHAT EXACTLY IS RSO?
RSO is a brownish, thick, semi-solid material that normally appears as a brownish, thick semi-solid substance. It’s usually sold pre-packaged in little plastic syringes. Full-spectrum extracts, such as RSO, are a form of full-spectrum extract that it’s a compound with a high concentration of cannabis’ active components and a large amount of plant debris eliminated.
Rick Simpson, a Canadian engineer and cannabis activist is the name’s inspiration. After being diagnosed with skin cancer in 2002, Simpson created the RSO formula himself. After reading a paper on how THC reportedly destroyed cancer cells in mice, he came up with the idea.
RSO developed due to his desire to manufacture a THC-rich extract. For his RSO formulation, Simpson largely employed Indica strains. THC levels as high as 90% were found in some of his samples. With such high THC levels, you can be certain that RSO will make you high. Simpson thinks that RSO was essential in his cancer recovery. As a result, several extractors have developed their versions of RSO based on Simpson’s original formula.
RSO’S BENEFITS INCLUDE:
What exactly is RSO’s purpose?
RSO includes more cannabinoids, such as Delta 8, CBC, THCV, CBN, CBD, and CBG, than other extracts since it is a full spectrum extract. RSO often has higher terrene levels as well. It is because it extracts the whole plant. Higher quantities of these chemicals may result in larger therapeutic benefits because of a phenomenon known as the Entourage Effect.
The scientific community has yet to determine RSO’s effectiveness in curing cancer. While some evidence suggests that RSO destroys cancer cells, it’s still too early to tell. However, this hasn’t prevented many people from self-medicating with the extract. Maryland presently recognizes several medicinal cannabis qualifying ailments (and, by extension, RSO). These are some of the conditions:
ADMINISTRATION OF THE RSO
Its raw form allows for many applications, such as infusing cooking oils to add to anything, adding RSO to a baking recipe, and making your topical, tinctures, and suppositories. Patients may also eat a tiny bit of it by dabbing it on crackers. Since commercially manufactured oil frequently comes in an easily-measurable syringe, dosing management with RSO is likewise quite straightforward.
Are you unsure how to make RSO? That is a challenging question. Like with any edibles, we suggest beginning modest and gradually increasing your dosage with RSO. Start with a quarter grain of rice-sized drop on a cracker if you’re new to RSO and edibles.
What is the time frame for RSO to take effect? It depends on how you want to utilize it. If you take RSO orally, it might take up to 3 hours to get the full benefits (although this can happen much faster). On the other hand, some infused topical require as little as 3 minutes to take effect.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR RSO DOSING
Never worry if you’re wondering, “How much RSO should I take?” We’ll go through a 12-week dose schedule below.
• Week 1: 3 doses each day, separated by 8 hours. Each dosage should be half a grain of rice in size.
• Weeks 2–5: every four days, increase your dose. Once you’ve reached a gram of RSO every day, stop.
• Weeks 5–12: take one gram each day, divided into eight equal doses.
If you’re thinking about starting an RSO regimen, we suggest speaking with a dispensary agent to determine which plan is best for you.
ARE YOU ABLE TO SMOKE RSO?
RSO is a very adaptable extract. Patients traditionally use it as a topical or an edible. However, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to smoke RSO. Some daring patients even ask whether RSO can be dabbed.
It’s crucial to understand where RSO comes from before attempting to smoke or vape it. During the extraction procedure, some RSO manufacturers employ flammable solvents. These extracts should not be smoked or dabbed. Ask your bud tender if you have any questions regarding RSO’s extraction methods.
RSO TOPICALS: HOW TO MAKE THEM
If you don’t want to purchase RSO from a dispensary, you may make your own. It’s no issue! It’s a cinch to make a topical using RSO. Only a few basic ingredients and cooking utensils are required.
1. Bring water to a boil in a steamer or double boiler.
2. Pour the coconut oil, she butter, and RSO into the glass bowl as the water heats up (try to keep the RSO off of the walls of the bowl)
3. Place the glass bowl over the top of the boiling water in the steamer or boiler.
4. As the ingredients begin to liquefy, carefully combine everything and uniformly distribute the RSO (Warning: the bowl may be hot.)
5. Remove the bowl from the boiler/steamer using oven mitts or heat-proof gloves after combining everything.
6. Chill the dish for an hour on a heating pad in the refrigerator.
7. Remove the bowl from the refrigeration and beat the topical into a spreadable consistency with the hand mixer.
