What is RSO or Rick Simpson Oil?
RSO oil was developed by a Canadian medical marijuana activist named Rick Simpson. This THO dense oil is the earliest version of a concentrated cannabis oil. Originally developed to aid in the treatment of conditions like cancer and epilepsy, now RSO oil is also commonly used for other health issues like asthma, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, depression, even inflammation. So who is Rick Simpson, what is Rick Simpson Oil and how to use Rick Simpson Oil are questions we hear all the time.

Who is Rick Simpson?
Rick Simpson is an activist, author and a self-described “simple man” who stumbled into cannabis icon status after sharing his oil and knowledge of the medicinal value of the cannabis plant with anyone who needed it. Simpson is a former engineer who rediscovered the benefits of cannabis after he experienced a terrible fall while working at a medical facility. Simpson rediscovered the benefits of cannabis when he used a homemade concentrated oil after being diagnosed with skin cancer. Simpson placed droplets of his homemade oil onto a bandaid and then covered the cancerous lesions. When he removed the bandaids four days later, the cancerous lesions had all but disappeared! He knew then he needed to share this knowledge as far and as wide as he could. He realized there was an insurmountable value in not just cannabis, but also a highly concentrated version of the plant.
What is Rick Simpson Oil?
RSO is highly purified, decarboxylated cannabis oil with a very dense, almost fudge-like consistency. RSO oil is antifungal, antibacterial and antimicrobial. According to Rick Simpson’s website, the process includes, “washing the medicinal resins off the bud material with a solvent. The resins that have been removed contain the medicinal cannabinoids needed for healing. Then, after the solvent cannabinoid or oil mix has been filtered and the solvent has been boiled off properly, you are left with the resin in its most medicinal form.” RSO is also easy to make, discrete and odorless, so many choose this method of medicinal cannabis consumption.
How to Use Rick Simpson Oil
