An unrefined, potent cannabis oil extracted using ethanol and named after the man who created it and benefited from it first - Rick Simpson. After his cancer diagnosis, Simpson read a study from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute that showed THC could kill cancer cells in mice. Simpson was already a fan of medical cannabis — he’d been using it to treat tinnitus and dizzy spells caused after falling and hitting his head several years earlier — so he decided to try to treat his skin cancer with cannabis oil. Simpson claimed he cured his own skin cancer with a custom blend of cannabis oil, naming it Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), and Phoenix Tears (the name of Rick’s website).
How to Use RSO
Simpson has dosage instructions on his site, but keep in mind they have not been vetted by medical researchers. Dosages vary from person to person depending on many factors, including the potency of the RSO.
It is recommended people start by taking a dose that is half the size of a piece of rice three times daily. Simpson recommends doubling the dosage after every four days for five weeks, slowly building up a tolerance to muddle the effects of the THC. For the remainder of the 12-week treatment period, keep the dosage at a full gram. Simpson also notes that the effects of the oil may not be felt until an hour after ingestion.
RSO is typically not smoked. It is applied in the following ways:
- As a topical rubbed onto the surface of the skin
- As a sublingual with drops under the tongue; this has the fastest absorption rate
- As a capsule taken orally; this has the slowest-acting effects, but the effects would last longer
