RSO is short for Rick-Simpson-Oil, oil that is made from buds of the
Hemp plant. So it’s very concentrated cannabis medication. People swear by
it, as it appears to have healing effects that are much better, than those of
usually prescribed drugs. How to make rso. Yet a lot of doctors think otherwise. The discus-sion about the so-called »big Pharma« rises; legalisation of this plant is re-considered across the world; but does it really help? Who is the creator?
Does he have any proof?
Rick Simpson provides instructions and medication on Hemp oil since
2003. But his Cannabis oil journey starts a little earlier. In 1997 he worked
as an engineer in a Canadian hospital. There, he suffered from an accident,
which left him with a few injuries, such as a permanent Tinnitus and other
pains. Prescribed drugs from his doctor didn’t help, sometimes they made
his suffering worse. After learning, that Cannabis has been used throughout
human history to heal and medicate people – in addition paper and textiles
can be created with hemp, which makes it even more attractive –, he started
experimenting with Cannabis. After successfully creating the concentrated
Hemp oil, now known as RSO, he started treating himself. And it worked!
He healed his injuries much better and more efficiently than any prescribed
medicine he ever received.
The doctors, as you would expect, weren’t convinced. But at this point
Rick Simpson would have another chance to convince them. In 2003 doc-
tors discovered small bumps on Rick Simpson’s arm. No doubt: skin cancer.
Rick Simpson decided to treat the cancer himself, since he had heard from a
study from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, which found out that
Cannabis killed cancer cells in mice. He applied his concentrated oil on a
bandage and left it on the bumps for several days. Four days later, he remo-
ved the bandage – the cancerous growth had disappeared! Though, his doc-
tor’s still didn’t believe him, he believed in the healing effects on Cannabis.
People who suffered from cancer heard about Rick Simpson, asked him for
help and he provided the oil, taking no money from his customers.
There are countless studies, that support the healing properties of Hemp,
nevertheless many doctors just don’t support them, just as they don’t believe
Rick Simpson. RSO oil cancer. Nevertheless, people still got his medicine instead of the
drugs they got in pharmacies; so the word about RSO spread and as a result
of this fame, Simpson’s home was raided multiple times by the police,
thousands of home grown plants confiscated, cut down, destroyed, as Can-
nabis wasn’t legal and a very difficult and confusing topic to handle. Now,
Hemp isn’t completely illegal in Canada and many other countries started to
1reconsider the laws surrounding Cannabis. Some completely legalise Hemp,
others legalise it for medical use only.
Now, as the health benefits of Hemp are pretty obvious, the question still
remains: How do you produce it? You can, of course, buy it, but you can
also do it yourself! Rick Simpson published a step by step guide on how to
make RSO. As it is quite lengthy, I summarised it below.
What you need:
- 1 pound of dried cannabis material (indica strain)
- 2 gallons of solvent – 99% isopropyl alcohol (can also use butane,
ethanol, or other solvent)
- 5-gallon bucket
- A deep bowl
- Wooden spoon for stirring
- Rice cooker
- Plastic catheter tip syringe (60ml)
(This recipe produces 60 grams of oil for a 90-day treatment. If you requi-
re less, just divide the ingredients.)
First of all, place the dry cannabis into the 5-gallon bucket and pour in the
solvent, until the plant is covered.
Then you need to stir and crush the plant with the wooden spoon, whilst
adding more of the solvent. Keep stirring for three more minutes. Doing
that, around 80% of THC will dissolve into the solvent.
After that, drain the solvent from the plant into your bowl. Use the
cheesecloth to keep the plant inside the bucket. Add more solvent to the
plant in the bucket and stir for another three minutes.
Drain the solvent again using the cheesecloth. The plant can be thrown
away, keep the solvent.
Now, put the solvent into the rice cooker until it’s about three quarters
full. Turn it on and wait. A rice cooker is efficient to use, as its temperature
is steady and not too hot. A temperature of 148 degrees Celsius will burn
your mixture and it will be unusable. So the rice cooker should be set to a
temperature of 100 to 110 degrees Celsius (210 and 230 degrees
As the rice cooker heats up and parts of the solvent evaporate keep adding
more of your mixture. Note, that you need to keep the rice cooker in a well-
ventilated area and far away from flames, as the solvent is easily combusti-
Once the solvent evaporated, fill your syringe with it. You can dose the
RSO easily that way. If the RSO is too thick, run the syringe under hot water
beforehand. Bad reaction to weed. This will make siphoning the oil into the syringe easier.
Using RSO is a little bit tricky: Usually you should consult your doctor
first about starting a new treatment regiment, but some doctors don’t believe
in the healing properties of Hemp, as described above. Rick Simpson pu-
blished his own treatment regiment.
One patient should gradually consume 60 grams of RSO in 90 days. So
you start out your first week with three doses every day, each drop should be
the size of a grain of rice; weeks 2 through 5 you should double the dose
every four days; weeks 5 through 12 you take one gram of RSO, which are
around 9 drops per day every eight hours.
