What is RSO?

Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO, is a full extract cannabis oil meant to be taken orally or applied topically. RSO is a marijuana extract made utilizing a solvent to extract cannabinoids. The most common solvent used to produce RSO is grain alcohol, but some other solvents like ethanol or butane are sometimes used. Flower (bud) material is placed in a large container and alcohol is added. The entire mixture is stirred and crushed into the alcohol. After a time, the alcohol is drained from the remaining plant material. That mixture is then heated in a container, such as a rice cooker, so that the residual alcohol evaporates. The end product is a high potency oil often dark in color with a thick consistency. RSO can be siphoned into a syringe style applicator for dosing which offers the advantage of a long shelf life as oxidation does not easily occur.

Typically, a single syringe of RSO contains around 600 mg of THC; however, this is dependent upon the source material used. Traditional RSO is made from indica plants that are high in THC; however, any strain can be used to make RSO. The final results will depend upon what strains were used and the moisture content of the plants themselves. The strains used also account for the color and consistency of the oil. Some plants result in a light amber color with a viscous consistency while others have a darker, thicker consistency. In some cases, other portions of the plant, such as fan leaves, are used in the mixture so as to get the maximum amount of cannabinoids from a crop. This will cause the end product to have a more astringent taste and darker color as well.

Who is Rick Simpson?

Rick Simpson is a Canadian man who helped pioneer full extract cannabis oil. In 2003, he was diagnosed with a form of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma. After reading about a study from the National Cancer Institute in which THC was found to kill cancer cells in mice, he decided to attempt treating his cancer with full extract cannabis oil by applying it directly to the affected area and covering it with a bandage. After several days, he removed the bandage and found the affected area had cleared up. It was after this recovery that he began to produce the full extract cannabis oil for those in need and became famous for it. Thus, the full extract oil became known as Rick Simpson Oil, colloquially called RSO.

Traditional RSO Dosing

There is a method that Rick Simpson suggests when using an RSO regimen. The goal is to consume 60 grams of RSO over the course of 90 days. In the first week, three doses should be taken each day, once in the morning, afternoon, and at night. RSO is very potent. The beginning dose should be the size of a half a grain of rice. After the first week, the measured dose should be doubled every four days. It will take approximately three to five weeks before the dosage reaches a full gram of RSO in a day. Continue to take a full gram in a day until the full 60 grams is consumed. The most common side effects when undertaking an RSO regimen is excessive tiredness and/or psychoactivity. Over time, the body will adjust to the higher dose of RSO; this typically takes three to four weeks.

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

1 Ounce Indica Strain Cannabis, decarbed

Rice Cooker or Crockpot

Cheesecloth & Rubberband

Everclear (place in the freezer for one hour before using) (DO NOT USE RUBBING ALCOHOL)

Warnings: Extreme caution must be used when heating Everclear. I prefer if you could do the cooking part outside but if you can not, make sure this is done next to an open window or slider. This is nondebatable. You must have airflow and a fan to push the fumes away from your rice cooker and out to the fresh air.

How to make Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)

  • Grind your cannabis in a blender. You want it to be shake like. You may want to do this in two steps, grinding half at a time so it doesn’t clog up your blender.
  • Pour ground cannabis into your tall mason jar.
  • Use Everclear to clean out your blender cup and recover all of the grinds.
  • Once all of your cannabis is in your mason jar. Pour enough Everclear (make sure it has been in the freezer for 45 min) to just cover all of your cannabis.
  • Use a butter knife large spoon to stir and mash your cannabis, getting the extracting stage to start right away. Place in the freezer for 45 minutes to several hours before starting the cooking process.
  • Take a cheesecloth and rubber band it to your wide mouthed mason jar. Strain your Everclear mixture into the jar. Allow it to fully drip into the jar. Then use your hands to squeeze and extract as much of the liquid as you can.
  • Set your rice cooker on a table with a table fan or medium to large sized fan blowing to push the fumes away from the rice cooker and into the fresh air.
  • Place your mason jar into your rice cooker pot. Pour enough water to get to the height of your green gold.
  • Set your rice cooker to rice.
  • You have to stay with your rice cooker the entire time this is cooking. Use your infrared thermometer to make sure that the water temperature does not go over 240 degrees. Everclear is very flammable and you do not want the temperature to exceed 240 degrees.
  • Mine took about 2-3 hours to fully cook down.
  • You will know it is done when it is a dark syrup and does not move when you hold the jar sideways.
  • *Dosage should be about the size of a grain of rice but this is something that you will need to research as I can not recommend a proper dosage.
  • You can either purchase organic pill capsules and place your dose into the capsule and swallow.
  • You can place it into a suppository capsule, this is actually a very effective way to get your dose.
  • Take orally, either on the roof of your mouth, inside your lower lip, or on a piece of food.

Important Info to Remember about making Rick Simpson Oil

**Please make your rick simpson oil (RSO) outside if possible (a fan is still needed for making this outside). If this is not possible you must make it next to an open window, with a fan pushing the fumes out the window.

**Only use EVERCLEAR, DO NOT use rubbing alcohol.

**Do not allow your water to rise above 240 degrees.

**Rick Simpson Oil is used to treat many illnesses, please do your research to make sure this will be a benefit to your body.

**Please be cautious of any Rick Simpson Oil that can be purchased ready made, you are putting a lot of faith into this individual to sell you the best product. Plus if made improperly this can be dangerous to consume. This is why I recommend making your own RSO Oil.

    What Is Rick Simpson Oil?

    Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is a highly potent, viscous, dark-brown/black oil. RSO results from stripping the cannabis plant’s trichomes, which are rich in therapeutic cannabinoids and terpenes. The final product is a powerhouse of healing compounds including potent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

    Created by a Canadian scientist named Rick Simpson, RSO originally helped its namesake treat an aggressive form of skin cancer. Simpson was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma and delved into research on the impact of THC on cancer cells. From there, he created a cannabis oil that he applied to his skin. After only four days, his cancerous cells were reportedly gone.

    Sold on the healing effects of medical marijuana, Simpson cultivated his own cannabis, harvested his own plants, and created more of that cannabis-infused oil, known today as RSO. Learn about how RSO works and how to use RSO as a natural wellness supplement.

    How It Works

    RSO is similar to a highly purified form of hashish, where a plant’s resin and trichomes are separated from the plant itself to create a cannabinoid-concentrated product. The theory is that the potent mix of highly concentrated cannabinoids and terpenes can help treat conditions like cancer by effectively “soaking” the body’s cells with cannabinoids, meaning that the oil can help fight cancerous cells throughout the body.

    There are significant differences between Rick Simpson Oil and regular cannabis oil.

    Rick Simpson Oil vs. Cannabis Oil: Differences and Similarities

    Cannabis oil usually refers to the infusion of cannabis into an oil, usually olive, coconut or MCT oil. In contrast, RSO is an oily concentrate made from separating the plant’s cannabinoids from the plant material. RSO is therefore more similar to hash or other cannabis concentrates.

    One similarity between RSO and cannabis oil is that both products are full-spectrum, meaning that they contain a range of chemical compounds including psychoactive THC. In fact, RSO usually contains higher levels of THC than ordinary cannabis oil. The dense THC concentrations of RSO make the product more potent than most cannabis oils.

    How to Make Rick Simpson Oil

    The process of making RSO involves:

    • Mixing together highly purified alcohol with cannabis to create a solvent
    • Straining the solvent to get rid of extra plant material
    • Heating the solvent (avoiding any naked flames) to get rid of all the alcohol and any other contaminants present in the solvent
    • The result is a thick, sticky, brown-black oil that can be used as you wish, including in edible form

    Please note that making RSO at home is potentially dangerous (and illegal in many places), so we do not recommend that you attempt the process.

    Benefits and Uses

    While modern research has shown RSO is effective in fighting cancer in conjunction with other therapies, RSO can treat a laundry list of other conditions as well. Some of the ailments RSO has also been shown to be effective with include, but are not limited to, the following:

    Generally, while dosing may be different for everyone depending on age, sex, and other factors of physical health, the rule of thumb when it comes to RSO is 60 grams over 90 days. Patients should start with three doses a day of only a small drop (equivalent to a grain of rice) applied either topically or ingested in some way every eight or so hours.

    From there, the patient should double their dose every four or so days. Then, after about five weeks, the patient should up their dose to a gram of oil per day until all 60 grams have been used. This is the treatment usually recommended for those suffering from cancer. While there is some anecdotal evidence that this dosing regime works, others may benefit from different dosages and ingestion methods.

    If you’re going to smoke or vape RSO instead of ingesting or using it topically, you need to make sure that particular oil is right. Always check with your budtender at the dispensary you’re buying from and, of course, if you’re making it yourself make sure to burn off the alcohol completely before smoking it. However, we at Leafwell do not recommend this ingestion method, as the results can be dangerous and combustible.

    If you’re cooking with RSO, one popular staple is a cannabutter or cannabis cooking oil. From there, you can swap your cannabis-infused product with the normal one in recipes to create RSO-infused edibles. You can even mix the oil into sauces, dips, salad dressings and beverages.

    But remember: start low and go slow. Cannabis edibles, especially those made with RSO, can be extraordinarily potent, so use less than you think you need.

    Potential Risks and Interactions

    Rick Simpson Oil carries the same risks as any THC product, but perhaps even more so as RSO is generally higher in the intoxicating cannabinoid. The risks and side effects of THC include:

    • Headache
    • Nausea and/or vomiting
    • Mood swings
    • Paranoia
    • Anxiety
    • Accelerated heart rate
    • Coordination problems
    • Red eyes
    • Delayed reaction times
    • Fatigue

    Avoid driving or operating any kind of machinery when using RSO and other THC products. Seek medical attention if you experience moderate or severe side effects from using Rick Simpson Oil.

    Furthermore, there are many potential drug interactions to be aware of before you use RSO with any other medication. Antidepressants, opioids and sedatives are just a few types of drugs that can negatively interact with Rick Simpson Oil.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Does Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) contain THC?

    Yes, Rick Simpson Oil is exceptionally high in THC, often containing concentrations of 60 percent or higher. If you are looking for products that have no THC, CBD topicals (especially those made from CBD isolate) are your best bet.

    Why is RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) banned in many countries?

    RSO is banned in many countries where cannabis and THC are illegal. There may also be concerns about advertising Rick Simpson Oil as a “cure” for cancer when no such cure exists. RSO may be beneficial for some people with cancer, but it cannot legally or ethically be classified as a remedy.

    Is there any evidence that Rick Simpson Oil works?

    There is some evidence that RSO may be effective for certain individuals, but further research is crucial. As more federally-funded research develops on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and the overall impact of medical cannabis, we’ll get a fuller understanding of how RSO can help treat diseases including cancer.
