To date the recipe for Rick Simpson Oil, now dubbed, “RSO,” has been paid forward around the world by word of mouth, healing the masses and putting serious illnesses into remission.
More than fifteen years ago, Canadian Rick Simpson was told to go home and put his house in order, after doctors told him there was nothing more they could do for a nasty case of skin cancer. Quick thinking engineer that he was, he did a little digging and found an old cannabis oil recipe. After dosing himself, the cancer cleared up along with other serious and debilitating ailments he was suffering from.
To date the recipe for Rick Simpson Oil, now dubbed, “RSO,” has been paid forward around the world by word of mouth, healing the masses and putting serious illness – including the worst cases of cancers – into remission, with a maintenance dose for life the size of a grain of rice, daily.
Some say we as a species are cannabinoid deficient and that our endocannabinoid system needs this plant to ward off disease and other disorders – both physiologically and neurologically – saving us from our own creation of toxins that have been making us sick for decades.
Following is a step-by-step guide to making this strong oil. The solvent used here is isopropyl alcohol, but there are many types out there that work. The main thing is cooking it down to the oil, with no green or solvent remaining.
Please note cooking alcohol or other solvents is risky, as it can be highly flammable, and should be made outside with very good airflow and ventilation.
Whole plant theory works best, as oil tested using stem, leaf and bud tests with a combination of THC, CBD (Cannabidiol), and CBN (Cannabinol). When made with good flower RSO should test upwards of 80 percent THC, as THC is what puts cancer into remission.
When ingesting orally, a step-up dosing needs to be used, starting with a dose the size of a half a grain of rice, working up to a gram a day until 60 grams are consumed over a three month period.
The other option is to make suppositories and doses rectally, getting the medicine directly into the bloodstream and to the organs for healing, with very little head high. This is the preferred delivery for the oil.
One pound of flower, stems and leaves make about 60 grams, or one treatment of oil.
- Add one pound bud, leaf and stem to bucket lined with a five gallon paint strainer bag.
- Add three and a half to four gallons of Isopropyl Alcohol to plant material (fill up a five gallon bucket ¾ full).
- Stir material for three minutes only.
- Lift bag up from bucket and strain.
- Strain once more with a 25 micron fiber mesh.
HEATING ELEMENT: Used here: “Nu-Wave” inductive heating element, set to 265 degrees.
- Bring to boil and simmer, continuing heat at 265 degrees throughout the process.
- Continue to slowly pour liquid into simmering pan a little at a time until it’s cooked down. Simmer until color turns dark.
- Continue to cook until mixture thickens into a dark brown, clear tar.
- Cook and stir until all bubbles (plant material/solvent) are gone. This is called “decarboxylation.”
- Cook until mixture is completely clear and all solvent is “purged.”
- Pour carefully into jars.
Color should be a clear, brown color.
