The possibility of curing cancer has created a lot of buzz around RSO. As we shared in our intro, Rick Simpson discovered that his oil made the cancerous lump on his arm completely disappear!
He bandaged it and covered his spots for several days. When he removed it, they were gone.
There are several studies that show cannabis oil to kill cancer cells, but obviously we shouldn’t trust just one person’s claim. Nevertheless, there is still not enough scientific evidence to encourage the FDA to approve THC oil. It’s a pity that you already approved Marinol.
Nonetheless, if your doctor agrees with you while undergoing chemotherapy or other cancer treatment, there is no reason not to try it.
What does RSO Cancer Testimonials say?
You can find many RSO testimonials online praising the benefits of Rick Simpson oil. One of the latest examples can be found in the RSO Stories format. This video series showcases people testifying about their experiences with RSO and how it has helped them treat cancer, fibromyalgia and more.
They are part of the larger Stoner Stories project.
RSO oil for pain
RSO can potentially help patients suffering from chronic pain as an alternative to prescription medications.
It can help cancer patients dealing with chronic pain. However, beginners may find it a bit difficult.
If you plan to use RSO for sublingual pain, you should know that RSO does not provide relief as quickly as other forms of cannabis (vaping or smoking). Still, with sublingual administration, it should take effect within a maximum of 1 hour.
When it comes to pain issues, RSO may be a better option than CBD for some patients due to its higher THC content, which continues in the next section.
First of all, CBD oil and RSO are derived from different strains. High-quality CBD oil is usually derived from hemp, while RSO is derived from marijuana. Second, CBD oil is not a psychoactive substance. If there is THC, it contains less than 0.3% (eg none in CBD crystals).
By comparison, if you look at the Rick Simpson oil recipe below, you’ll find that it has high psychoactivity because it’s high in THC. Much higher than normal joints! If you are going to be tested for THC, you should definitely get advice on how to pass a THC drug test.
Finally, while RSO may be a better choice for excruciating pain in cancer patients, CBD is effective for many other problems. Helps with chronic pain, stress and anxiety, depression, PTSD, acne and more.
How to use RSO
There are several ways you can use RSO.
Topically rubbed into the skin (acting on conditions that occur on the surface of the skin, such as skin cancer)
Sublingual administration by placing a drop under the tongue for 1 to 2 minutes (fastest absorption)
Capsules taken orally (effects are slower but last longer)
While that last method may sound inconvenient, the RSO absorbed by the colon is not as intoxicating as the other methods. It can feel a bit heavy, but nothing extreme.
Also, this method is more beneficial if you have colorectal or prostate cancer.
Where to Buy Rick Simpson Oil
You can’t buy RSO directly from its creator, Rick Simpson, but you can find oils high in THC at cannabis dispensaries and online. However, it far exceeds the legal limit for its THC content, so if cannabis isn’t legal in your state, you’ll need to get a medical marijuana card.
RSO is also known as “Tears of the Phoenix”, so don’t be confused if you see it advertised under that name.
