Rick Simpson Oil, also called RSO, is an all-natural cannabis oil that is made from the bud of the marijuana plant. It has many benefits for medical patients who have cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Many people have been cured of illnesses using this product. The official website will give you a brief idea of making Rick Simpson Oil at home and its benefits for those who have cancer or other life-threatening diseases.

Rick’s Story

Before we delve into the details of this miraculous oil, it is worth mentioning something here. There are many reasons Rick Simpson’s story may be complicated for some people to believe. For instance, when he was diagnosed with cancer in 1998, it would have been elementary for him to accept his doctor’s prognosis that he would die within three months. Yet Rick wasn’t willing to lie down and die without a fight. Instead, he sought information on the internet about cannabis use as a medicine for thousands of years.

This discovery prompted Rick Simpson to treat himself with hash oil made from marijuana instead of chemotherapy. The latter can have highly unpleasant side effects such as nausea, vomiting, and extreme fatigue. After spending a fortune on medical bills during his illness, Rick turned to grow his hemp supply with almost no money left. He opted to produce his hash oil, which he began ingesting twice a day using a small dosage.

After only four days of treatment, the cancerous tumor on his skin, which had grown to be the size of a quarter, ruptured and oozed with pus. A few days later, scabbed-over skin formed over the open sore left by the now ruptured tumor. After continued use for another week, all pain associated with his illness was gone. He even regained some feeling back into his arms and legs that was lost due to nerve damage caused by the cancerous tumor pressing against them. 

It took several months before he made an official recovery from his condition. Rick is still alive today, thanks mainly to cannabis oil, which helped him beat stage 4 metastatic skin cancer without suffering the debilitating effects of chemotherapy.

We now know that the key active ingredient in Rick Simpson oil is THC. The studies show it reduces cancerous tumors and eliminates pain for those suffering from a wide variety of illnesses.

How Is It Made?

Rick Simpson Oil, also known as RSO, Phoenix Tears, or Hemp Oil, is a type of Hash oil made from the buds and leaves of Cannabis Sativa L.

Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is made by extracting THC-rich resin from cannabis using pure naphtha or isopropyl alcohol. This process requires an amount of material to achieve high levels of THC in the finished product. Generally, about 2 ounces or grams are required to produce 1 ounce or 30ml of RSO. The resulting mixture can vary from clear golden yellow on the low end to dark green on the high end. Most batches produce a golden-colored oil that is tacky yet malleable at room temperature. 

If the mixture is pre-filtered before being placed in a solvent, the amount of plant material can be reduced by as much as 50% or more while maintaining high potency levels. A filter made from 1000 holes per square inch will remove about 50% of plant material, while one with 2500 holes per square inch will remove about 90%. This leaves a mixture with a higher viscosity and darker color than alcohol extracted oil but still maintains high levels of active cannabinoids.

Production Methods

Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), also known as Phoenix Tears, is a highly potent medical cannabis extract named for its creator, Canadian activist Rick Simpson. The original recipe calls for 1 oz of high-quality bud or 2 ½ to 3 ½ oz of trim/leaf mixed with 100 ml of a solvent like a naphtha, pure grain alcohol, 99% isopropanol, or high-proof vodka. 

Many have claimed success using either their trim/bud from a previous harvest or fresh bud from the current harvest to make the oil, but the main idea is the longer you let your mixture sit over time, the more potent it will be. The official website says that allowing your mix of solvent and plant matter to sit for 3 to 4 weeks is ideal for maximum potency. 

One method to produce Rick Simpson Oil involves soaking marijuana flowers in pure naphtha or petroleum ether for three days. Then, filtering out the solvent with a coffee filter until it stops dripping, adding re-filtered petroleum ether to evaporate off any remaining solvent. This step removes all water compounds from the mixture, leaving only the resin glands with high THC and CBD levels.

First, the cannabis plant material is decarboxylated by placing it into a preheated oven at 220 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or dry.

Next, the dried and ground cannabis is placed in an extraction solvent using extraction tubes and distilled water. This method requires high temperatures and pressure for 3 hours to create an extra potent concentrate of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

After this process, your Rick Simpson oil should be left with pure THC-A crystals, making other products such as edibles and capsules. These crystals may also be smoked directly but will leave a “resin” taste in one’s mouth.

Benefits Of Using Rick Simpson Oil

CBD also has many medicinal benefits as well. It includes being a potent anti-inflammatory agent and an analgesic, meaning it can decrease levels of chronic pain. That neither cannabinoid will get you “high” means they are incredibly safe to use, even for children with conditions such as epilepsy. Besides requiring less material, there are other advantages to this process.

Minimal Further Processing

Since the oil is already clean, it requires minimal further processing if used directly on the skin. This entity means that impurities do not get absorbed through your skin with the oil. It contrasts with butane extraction, which requires cleaning to remove residual solvents before they can be applied directly on the skin without harm.

A Good Option For Cooking Foods Or Heating Body Creams

Because of its high viscosity, RSO is a good option for cooking foods or heating body creams. Since most of the plant material has already been filtered out before use, there are no large particles that are difficult to cook. It allows you to cook at higher temperatures without smoking, reducing carcinogens released when making edibles for medical purposes.

An Ingredient In Skin Creams And Lotions 

Using RSO as an ingredient in skin creams and lotions helps treat various skin problems, including psoriasis, acne, stretch marks, and warts. These conditions can all be treated topically by applying the oil directly to afflicted areas. It has been shown that applying topically can help with melanoma cancers that have metastasized to other body parts.

Treatment Options

RSO treatments are varied but focus on fighting cancer, reducing inflammation, and easing pain because of arthritis or other sources.

It is important to note, not many cancers respond well to Rick Simpson Oil treatments. Treatment results depend on the type of tumor you have, as different tumors require different nutrients not to spread further. Some will shrink when treated with cannabis compounds over time after being removed surgically or during radiation treatments. Sadly, Rick Simpson reports few success stories because patients don’t start their treatment soon enough after their diagnosis.

Treatments must be administered directly, either through the skin or orally, depending on the problem and type. Topical treatments can include applying drops of oil directly onto warts and moles or mixing with other ingredients such as hemp seed oil or coconut oil to make a salve used locally to treat psoriasis. 

Other topical treatments include using RSO-infused creams/lotions to ease pain from sore muscles and joints. Oral ingestion should only be done under proper supervision by a knowledgeable healthcare provider familiar with cannabis therapy. While oil infusions are often used to treat skin conditions, they should not be taken orally because of their extreme potency.

Suppose you are using RSO for treating cancer with or without conventional methods. In that case, you should have a proper 3rd party laboratory analysis performed on your oil to determine the cannabinoid profile of each batch before administering it. The results will show what cannabinoids are present, their relative percentages, and information about terpenes and other inactive plant material. This entity gives you an idea of how potent the oil is and shows how it may be effective against your particular type of cancer.

Protocols To Follow While Opting For RSO

When deciding to use RSO for this purpose, there are a few things you will want to keep in mind:

Removing Impurities

Impurities found in some batches of RSO can be removed with the proper cleanup procedures. However, Rick Simpson himself warns against contaminants due to using improper plant material or unclean solvents.

Filtering Through Activated Charcoal 

Clean up comprises filtering twice through activated charcoal and then washing with 99% isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol) both by itself and mixed with water depending on how much oil you are processing. Filtering through activated charcoal cleans out any impurities by passing it through a series of cells that trap contaminants and simple plant material such as fiber, which is used for topical applications if you cannot afford to purchase pure RSO. 

After filtering, it should look like clear water from where the initial solvent was filtered out rather than having a yellow cast because of contaminants such as plant material and waxes. This is an indicator that the solvent has been properly removed and, along with testing for residual solvents (isopropanol should read 0ppm), gives you a good idea of how clean your product is or isn’t.

Isopropyl Alcohol

Isopropyl alcohol can also remove fats, waxes, and other lipids from oil that may contain them, such as cannabis plants bred for high lipid content. Lipid metabolites like this will make it harder for cells to maintain energy levels, contributing to genetic damage by mutating DNA. Some batches test positive for these types of compounds, but it does not affect unless there are excess amounts in your product.

Activated Charcoal And Isopropanol 

You can also use activated charcoal and isopropanol to remove much of the plant material in your oil, such as chlorophyll, mildew spores, and other types of debris you want to remove before using for medical purposes. 

Removing all the contaminants from RSO by hot water extraction takes about three 4-6 hour runs through a pipe packed with coals and one or two that are run in alcohol afterward and then filtering after that to remove residue. It would help if you let it evaporate naturally without exposure to heat besides what will naturally occur in sunlight. If it is exposed to high temperatures like boiling water, it could cause the cannabinoids to present inside to vaporize off into the air would be wasted. 

Scrap The Resin, Which Is Contamination-Free

Evaporate the alcohol using a fan with air conditioning to bring it down to room temperature. You can scrape what resin has formed at the bottom of the jar, which should be primarily contaminant-free. However, some areas may still have contaminants not removed by boiling water or activated charcoal and isopropanol.

When using a mixture of isopropanol and water to remove plant matter from a batch of RSO, it should be around two parts of isopropanol mixed with one part water for optimum separation results. Higher water ratios will cause the mixture to separate into layers too quickly. In contrast, pure isopropanol or lower water ratios will not get all the contaminants to settle at the bottom. There are other solvents you can use to remove plant matter besides just using alcohol. Still, since these solvents often contain other compounds that may be harmful if consumed orally, like acetone and dichloromethane, they should only be used externally for medical purposes so inhalation does not become an issue.

Testing For Residual Solvent Contamination 

Testing for residual solvent contamination after filtration can be done by putting a few drops of your product on some paper when it has dried out enough with no open flames around in case any explosives are present from when making your oil. 

Evaporate completely with a fan, blowing air over the top of your product in an open room with no flames or sparks present for safety purposes. You can also use a metal container with water poured in it to test if there are still contaminants inside by dropping some drops of oil inside and seeing what happens. 

Wrapping Up

The evidence for the effectiveness of Rick Simpson Oil is clear, and it’s easy to see why so many people are turning to this treatment as a last-ditch effort. With such minimal side effects, coupled with its ability to work even on patients who have been diagnosed with terminal cancer, RSO should be considered by anyone looking for alternative therapy.
