What’s Rick Simpson Oil?
Rick Simpson Oil is usually created using indica or indica-dominant hybrid strains. It’s considered a full-spectrum extract that may have a large amount of THC and CBD. RSO is created by reduction of the plant matter in alcohol, which helps concentrate the cannabinoids and essentially helps make the oil stronger. Simpson doesn’t advocate for smoking his concoction; he instructs individuals to either eat it (or put it around the lower gum line and let it dissolve over a few minutes) or put it on straight to the skin.
The taste of the oil is described as bitter and chlorophyll-like. For dosage, it’s recommended that people start with three doses each day (every 8 hours) of doses which are quite small (round the size half a grain of rice). Beginners should begin with a quarter of the drop and see how it affects them before ingesting more.
