Rick Simpson Oil, called RSO for short, is one of the most versatile and lauded cannabis innovations—an oil created by Rick Simpson, a Canadian engineer and cannabis advocate who was radicalized to cannabis activism by a work accident that led to various health issues.
The story goes that he was able to resolve his health issues with RSO, a dark, tar-like cannabis extract that straddles the line of concentrate, edible, and topical. In short: There’s very little it can’t do, and a lot it can do for both patients and stoners. Here’s everything you need to know about RSO.

What is RSO?
Put simply, RSO is an oil derived from cannabis. But rather than a solvent extract that strips trichomes from buds, RSO contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and additional compounds of the whole cannabis plant.
The extraction process is complex and fairly long, similar to making a tincture. It’s typically near-black in color, and, admittedly, doesn’t taste great due to its high amount of plant matter (it uses the whole plant).
RSO was created as a medicinal therapeutic for cancer and other chronic health conditions, like MS and asthma. While Rick Simpson no longer produces the oil himself, it remains a crucial ingredient in the treatment plans of patients across North America.
Rick Simpson’s story
Rick Simpson wasn’t looking to become a marijuana icon. He was a Canadian engineer working at a hospital in 1997, tasked to work on some asbestos-covered pipes in a boiler room. The poor ventilation and toxic fumes caused him to pass out and fall off his ladder, after which he was taken to the emergency room.
He developed tinnitus and dizzy spells soon after, and no prescribed medication seemed to help. Despite its illegality and against the advice of his doctor, Simpson began using medical marijuana with great results in reliving his symptoms.
In 2003, he was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer. By then, Canada had legalized cannabis for medicinal purposes, but it was hard for Simpson to find a doctor who supported his use. A 1975 study in the The Journal of the National Cancer Institute showed how cannabis and its compounds inhibited tumor growth in mice, inspiring him to create RSO.
He has always maintained that applying RSO to his cancer growth and leaving it bandaged for four days cured him of cancer, but this has not been independently verified.
Simpson began producing the oil en masse and distributing it to thousands of patients for free. In 2009, his property was raided by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and thousands of cannabis plants were confiscated.
To escape legal persecution, Simpson now lives in Croatia and maintains a website for his RSO recipe, dosing guide, and books. In 2018, he suffered a stroke and has since receded from the public but continues to advocate for RSO and medical cannabis.
A patient’s guide to using cannabis for cancer
Benefits of RSO
Despite Rick Simpson’s near-miraculous recovery from cancer and tinnitus, cannabis’ Schedule I status means the scientific community lacks consistent research to back up these claims. As more and more states legalize adult-use cannabis, however, more data becomes available.
There have been promising reports that attest to RSO’s efficacy, such as a 2013 article showing that the use of RSO severely decreased the leukemic blast cell count in a 14-year-old terminal patient, with no toxic side effects.
Anecdotally, RSO has helped patients manage conditions such as multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, cancer, insomnia, chronic pain, and asthma, among many others.
As an incredibly potent THC product, RSO offers potential therapeutic effects, such as pain relief and appetite stimulation, and it can aid with sleep aid and nausea. But because studies haven’t been done, we can’t guarantee that RSO will impart these benefits.
A 2021 study indicated that while many cancer patients use cannabis in conjunction with cancer treatments, their primary care teams lacked insight on how to integrate cannabis into a regimen. Clearly, much more research needs to be done on how best to use RSO to amplify treatment.
Rick Simpson Oil for cancer treatment
Rick Simpson was motivated to create RSO by his own cancer diagnosis. His recipe is based on creating a product that produced the same results as a 1975 study, which showed cannabis killing cancer cells in mice.
Simpson has said he cured his skin cancer by using RSO topically, but that it can be taken orally to address internal cancers as well. This claim has not been independently verified, but in the years since RSO was invented, thousands of patients have used it to address symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Cancer patients seeking to use RSO should always first consult their primary care doctor to discuss their options.
RSO for back pain
One of the most common uses for RSO, and cannabis in general, is chronic pain. Back pain is one of the most common forms of physical pain, with as much as 80% of people experiencing it at some point in life.
RSO recipes typically call for high-THC and indica-dominant cannabis (although CBD-rich options do exist), and the final product is highly intoxicating, hence the gradual dosage increase to prevent too strong of a high. THC binds with CB1 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, most of which are concentrated in the brain and nerve cells. When THC binds to these nerve receptors, the sensation of pain lessens.

Is RSO dangerous?
Despite its high concentration of THC, no amount of RSO will cause an overdose, death, or lasting side effects. Risks associated with taking RSO are the same as taking a high dose of any cannabis product, such as an edible, concentrate, or more of any product than one is comfortable with—namely, getting too high, and having to wait for the effects to wear off.
RSO purchased from a dispensary has been lab-tested for solvents, pesticides, mold, and fungi, so you can rest easy that you’re getting a clean product.
If you choose to make RSO at home, there are somewhat dangerous steps in its preparations, such as burning off an ethanol solvent, which is flammable. Some other solvents used can be explosive or produce fumes. It’s also possible that not all the alcohol will be separated from the oil before ingestion.
If you are ever unsure about the quality of your homemade RSO, source it from a licensed dispensary.
Where can I get Rick Simpson Oil?
Since Rick Simpson Oil contains THC, you can only find it at licensed dispensaries in states with adult-use cannabis or medical marijuana. However, not all dispensaries carry RSO, as it is not as popular, nor affordable, as other forms of cannabis.
How much does RSO cost?
Relative to a pack of gummies or an eighth of flower, RSO is expensive. Prices vary state to state and county to county based on local tax laws, but the general range for RSO is $35–70 a gram. This may seem comparable to other cannabis concentrates, but patients need 60 grams to follow the recommended RSO regimen—that’s at least $2,100!
How to use RSO
The two most common ways to consume RSO are orally and topically. Rick Simpson himself used it as a topical to cure his skin cancer, although it’s been said his physician did not condone and cannot confirm this as a cure.
How long does RSO take to work?
RSO requires weeks to acclimate to without intoxication. Results may be felt within a few days, but most report significant differences in symptoms once they have reached the one-gram-per-day threshold, which may take up to five weeks, depending on the individual.
How to make cannabis edibles with concentrates
For skin ailments
If using topically, apply a dab of RSO to the skin site and cover with a band aid or bandage to ensure absorption. Reapply every other day.
For internal conditions
The other popular way to address internal conditions, such as physical pains, immunity conditions, and other illnesses, is to ingest RSO. This requires a large amount of RSO as well as a dosing system that requires weeks to acclimate to the high doses needed for treatment (more below). We recommend speaking to a doctor or medical professional familiar with RSO to discuss what works best for you.
Our guide here is based on consuming 60 grams of RSO in 90 days, broken up into weeks, as Rick Simpson recommends on his website. Keep in mind that this hasn’t been reviewed by medical professionals.
Side effects of RSO
Following a gradually increasing regimen of RSO is your best bet for avoiding potential side effects, such as sedation or dizziness. RSO is an incredibly potent product, and some consumers may feel uncomfortable if the dose is too high.
It’s possible to negate the intoxicating effects of THC by adding CBD-rich flower to the recommended dosing guide below. Many patients attest that the effects of RSO are largely positive, mitigating pain, nausea, and sleeplessness, among other symptoms.
Can you smoke or dab RSO?
Since RSO is an oil that retains some degree of plant matter, yes it can be smoked! But squirting a dollop directly in your bong or pipe will only lead to a sticky, sappy mess.
The best way to smoke RSO is to combine it with flower, such as adding a rice grain amount to a packed bowl. It also works well in joints and blunts when added to the paper or wrap in horizontal lines. This distribution will help slow the burning of a joint or blunt and allow the RSO to heat without destroying the cannabinoids.
Where do dabs come from? A history of cannabis extracts
And technically, yes, you can dab RSO. But we recommend only dabbing an RSO purchased from a dispensary with lab test results to ensure no solvents or other potential irritants are present. Note that when RSO is made, the cannabis is decarboxylated when the solvent is burned off, so it may not be as potent as other concentrates, depending on the temperature of your dabs.
Can you cook with RSO?
Yes, you can cook with RSO. Keep in mind that cooking cannabis above 300ºF will burn off the cannabinoids and render the RSO useless. For maximum efficacy, it’s best to add RSO to meals that have already been cooked, or to parts of a meal that don’t need to be cooked, such as a sauce, dressing, or beverage.
RSO dosage chart
|Week # in regimen||Ideal dosage|
|1||Half a grain of rice (1/4 a syringe drop) every eight hours|
|2||Half a grain of rice (1/4 a syringe drop) every eight hours|
|3||Half a grain of rice (1/4 a syringe drop) every eight hours|
|4||Start doubling your dose to a full grain of rice (1/2 a syringe drop) every eight hours|
|5||Two full grains of rice (1 syringe drop) every eight hours|
|6||Four full grain of rice (2 syringe drops) every eight hours|
|7-12||By now you will be ingesting approximately a gram of RSO every day, spread across three doses, taken every eight hours. Follow syringe measurements for accurate doing.|
|Continued maintenance||Once the 90-day treatment plan is over, patients only need a gram or two a month to maintain a base level of cannabinoids. One gram is approximately eight syringe drops; we recommend taking this as a small dose daily or near-daily for efficacy.|
While Simpson recommends taking the oil orally, patients can also administer it in suppository form, using the same dosing guide.
Weeks 1-3: Three small doses every day
Start with a small dose of RSO every eight hours (morning, midday, and night). Each dose should be about the size of half a grain of rice; the first dose will be about ¼ drop of RSO from an oil syringe.
Weeks 4-5: Double your dose every four days
Per Simpson’s recommendation, it takes most patients four to five weeks to reach the full dosage of one gram of RSO per day, starting from half a grain of rice. Patients should still take their doses every eight hours.
Weeks 6-12: A gram a day
Take one gram of RSO a day until you’ve consumed a full 60 grams. This comes out to taking about 8-9 rice-sized drops of RSO every eight hours.
Once a patient has gotten used to taking a gram of RSO a day and consumed the recommended 60 grams, they don’t need to continue with such high (and expensive) doses. Simpson’s website recommends one to two grams a month to maintain an influx of cannabinoids.
How to make RSO
This recipe follows Simpson’s own formulation to produce 60 grams of oil. This should be done in an open, well-ventilated area, as the solvent is highly combustible. Avoid all open flames such as stovetops, sparks, lighters, and cigarettes.
- 1 pound (~450 grams) of dried cannabis (preferably indica strains)
- 8-9 liters of a solvent (Simpson recommends 99% isopropyl alcohol)
- Two five-gallon buckets
- Electric rice cooker (do not use a slow cooker or Crockpot)
- Large wooden spoon or stirring utensil
- Plastic syringes
- Coffee filters or a cheesecloth
- Large fan (for ventilation)
- Stainless steel measuring cup (optional)
- Coffee warmer (optional)
Place all dry cannabis material into one of the 5-gallon buckets. Pour in the solvent until the plant matter is completely submerged.
Stir and muddle the plant material with your wooden spoon while slowly adding the solvent.
Once fully incorporated, stir the mixture for about three minutes to allow the THC to dissolve into the solvent. This ideally will infuse about 80% of the THC into the solvent.
Strain the plant material from the solvent into the second bucket through the coffee filters or cheesecloth.
With the solvent aside, put the plant material back in the first bucket and add more solvent. Continue stirring for another three minutes.
Drain the solvent from the plant material into your second bucket again using the cheesecloth and discard the remaining plant material.
Pour the solvent, which should now look dark, into the rice cooker until it is about ¾ full. Turn on your rice cooker.
The rice cooker should maintain a steady temperature between 210-230°F (100-110°C), in order to decarboxylate the cannabis and cook off the solvent.
The solvent will slowly evaporate with the heat of the rice cooker. Add your mixture to the rice cooker gradually.
Once the solvent has evaporated, use the funnels to pack the oil into your syringe for easy dosing. The RSO will be thick like honey, so if you have trouble dispensing it, run the syringe under hot water to ease it.

How long does RSO make you high?
RSO gives you that high you yearn for when tired or want to add a taste to your recreational experience. Unlike other products that get you high for a short time, RSO gives you that buzzing experience that lasts for at least 6-8 hours.
How much RSO should I take orally?
Keep taking one gram a day of RSO until the full 60 grams are consumed. For most people, that’s about 8 or 9 rice-sized doses of RSO every eight hours.
Why is my cannabutter so green?
The stronger the weed, the stronger the pot butter, so plan accordingly. If your tolerance is low, then you can use and eat less. Finished cannabutter ends up being lightly green, which also serves as a visual cue that the herb has been melted, cooked, and whisked appropriately.
Is 2 hours long enough for cannabutter?
No matter what, wait at least one to two hours to start feeling the effects of the edible. Two hours might seem like a long time, but because everyone’s body chemistry is different, it can take that long. Whatever you do, don’t take more of the edible after just 30 or 45 minutes if you’re not feeling something yet.
What color should potent cannabutter be?
The cannabutter should be the same nice yellow color all the way through. Look for a homogenous product with solidity.
How much does a syringe of RSO cost?
RSO is dark brown in color and will have a more intense earthy flavor and smell. This is a highly concentrated product. 1g or 1000mg – $60.00 – Dosage: Rice size droplet or 33mg/dose ? 30 full doses per syringe.
Is RSO good for anxiety?
RSO is a highly concentrated cannabis product that is extracted in attempts to be truly medicinal. It includes many cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, chlorophyll, and beneficial lipids that have been said to help with a number of ailments including anxiety, insomnia, and eating disorders.
Is RSO intoxicating?
RSO recipes typically call for high-THC and indica-dominant cannabis (although CBD-rich options do exist), and the final product is highly intoxicating, hence the gradual dosage increase to prevent too strong of a high.

10 Extremely Potent Cannabis Edibles – High Times
10 Extremely Potent Cannabis Edibles In every cannabis lover’s life, there comes a time to explore the frontiers of one’s tolerance for weed edibles. Being able to hone in on an ideal THC dosage level, measured in milligrams, is useful knowledge for any stoner to have, but I honestly didn’t know mine, aside from knowing it was “a lot.” I purposely set out to push those boundaries and discover just how high I could get. Determining Your Dose The last time I had gotten uncomfortably high was during judging for a High Times Cannabis Cup edibles competition years ago, well before the days when lab results on labels were the rule and not the exception. With the understanding that I have an extremely high tolerance, I did discover my effective dosing range through the process of researching this article, but I am not going to share that number with you. That is MY number. Your effective dose is likely to be VASTLY different from mine. What gets me high is likely to differ from the average person by 100 milligrams or more! Consuming cannabis is not a contest to determine who can ingest the most, so it is far more important for you to determine your ideal range than compare it with someone else’s. There is no standard marijuana dose*, or even dosage range, that suits all individuals. Body type, weight, diet and metabolism all play a role in how different people experience weed edibles. The amount one person can comfortably consume could make another paranoid, disoriented, and nauseous. (*The State of Colorado defines “1 dose” as equal to 10 milligrams of THC, a relatively small amount intended to guide new recreational users.—Editor) While overdoing it with weed edibles isn’t usually dangerous and has never been fatal, it can be mighty uncomfortable. When experimenting with high dose edibles, it’s always a good idea to keep some CBD handy, since this cannabinoid acts like an antidote for those who have consumed too much THC. A few sprays of Bhang’s CBD breath spray and my uncomfortable, overly medicated high mellowed itself out almost instantly. More importantly, don’t over-medicate in the first place. Start small and go slow, consuming only 10 mg. or even less if you consider yourself a lightweight or are eating cannabis for the first time. Wait at least 4 hours to see how you feel before eating more, since it takes time for cannabis to fully digest, especially if you’ve eaten a large meal that day. Try increasing the dosage by 5 to 10 mg. each day, continuing to go higher until you find a place where you are comfortable. Remember, you can always eat more but you can’t eat less! The Benefits of Mega-Dosed Edibles High-dose weed edibles have a small but dedicated fan base, and these patients tend to purchase edibles more often than the average casual user. It’s no surprise that these consumers include seriously ill patients fighting the ravages of cancer and other debilitating diseases along with those dealing with severe, chronic pain. Several budtenders noted that high-dose weed edibles are popular with insomniacs and others seeking sleep aids. Surprisingly, one particular demographic group is buying lots of high-dose edibles, but not for the reason you might think. Aaron Justis, proprietor of Buds and Roses Collective, explains that senior citizens are by far the biggest consumers of high-dose edibles, but they’re using these potent products to micro-dose throughout the day. “Our clientele are not buying high-dose edibles to get super high,” Justis claims. “They’re eating just a little at a time and are typically making that edible last for a week or more.” It makes sense because not only is it far less expensive to buy one high-dose edible as opposed to 10 moderate or low dose products, but the patient can also eat less to achieve the same results. When it comes to most marijuana edibles, that means less intake of unhealthy ingredients like sugars and fats. Many of the high-dose edibles consumers I talked to, especially women,…
Rick Simpson Oil and Edibles
Rick Simpson Oil and Edibles – Buy Rick Simpson OilRick Simpson Oil and EdiblesRick Simpson Oil or RSO, is probably not a new phrase to you. You have surface information about this oil and its much goodness. You’ve probably even heard of Rick Simpson Oil for cancer. Now, you want extensive information about Rick Simpson Oil and the founder – Rick Simpson himself. Rick Simpson oil is generally used as an alternative treatment for the treatments of cancer. However, it has been used to cure many other illnesses such as depression, multiple sclerosis, inflammation, asthma, and many other health conditions. Because this oil is very high in THC, it has similar medical characteristics to THC itself. And this compound has been known to treat similar health conditions and more. Some of these conditions include eating disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Due to the potency of this oil, you are perhaps thinking of how to produce some or thinking of where to buy Rick Simpson oil. If the former is your case, you would want to know if Rick Simpson oil needs to be decarboxylated. Thankfully, our article holds the answer to your question. To learn more about this, kindly scroll down and continue reading.Cannabis EdiblesCannabis and the derivative products of cannabis are versatile. Home-made edibles can be created from any type of cannabis product regardless of the cannabis product. It could be Hash, Rick Simpson Hemp Oil, Tinctures, Butane Hash Oil, or cannabis flower.DecarboxylationThis is also known as Decarbing. It is the simple and most crucial step in the creation of marijuana edibles. Cannabis edibles cannot be created with inert and raw plant material or cannabis products. This is because the forms of THC that exist in these natural products (THCA) are non-psychoactive. For this reason, it is essential to convert the THCA present to psychoactive Delta-9-THC (This is what is referred to as THC).The process of decarboxylation involves heating cannabis products for an extended period. This is done to degrade the THCA into THC – the idea is to degrade as much as possible because it is more of the THC that is required.During the process of decarboxylation, temperature and time are very crucial. A temperature that is too high or too long should be avoided so as to prevent the risk of drying out your already activated THC, as well as other terpenes and cannabinoids.Does RSO Need to Be Decarboxylated?No, Rick Simpson oil does not need decarboxylation. Rick Simpson Oil is a pre-activated cannabis product. For this reason, no further decarboxylation is necessary when creating edibles with it. Decarboxylation can, in fact, destroy the desired compounds in the oil.

Making (M)edibles | Fluent – Pennsylvania Although the sale of edibles is prohibited in Pennsylvania, medical patients are permitted to alter their products into an edible solution to manage the process of day-to-day dosing. For edibles, you can use a variety of different products such as RSO (Rick Simpson Oil), distillate oil, and even dry leaf by using the process of decarboxylation. Below are some steps to making a few simple edibles that you may find beneficial to add to your daily consumption plan. RSO Gummies Recipe Recipe Adapted from The Ganja Chronicles Tools: Glass measuring cup Silicon molds (candy, chocolate, or even mini muffin size will work) Whisk Medium bowl Condiment bottle (like a ketchup bottle) Glass jar Ingredients: ½ cup cold water ¼ cup corn syrup Jell-O (3 oz – flavor of your choice) 2 packs of gelatin RSO syringe (100 mg of THC, 500 mg, or even up to 1000 mg). Non-stick spray Notes: Before getting started, you’ll want to confirm the potency of the RSO. One thing many recipes don’t mention about RSO cooking methods, is the potency. This is important information for determining the final strength per gummy! Once the gummies have set, and you have a total count, use the following formula to determine potency per each unit: (Total mg of RSO) ÷ (Number of gummies) = (Potency per gummy) Method: Combine cold water and corn syrup together in a bowl and mix until clear. Add 2 packs of gelatin and Jell-O, and stir until clumps dissolve. It should look like a thick soup, but may still have a sugary consistency. Add mixture to a saucepan over medium-low heat. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, frequently stirring to prevent burning. Spray silicone molds with PAM or another cooking spray. Remove mixture from heat and add your chosen RSO to the pot. Squirt the entire syringe, making a note of total milligrams. Stir until combined. Carefully fill your condiment bottle with the mixture. The condiment bottle will make it easier to fill the silicone molds, but if you are careful, you can use a spoon. Fill each mold until the gel sits just above the edge, as the mixture will shrink during the cooling stage. Work extremely fast in this stage, because the mixture thickens as it cools. If the mixture becomes too difficult to work with, gently reheat until liquid again. Let the molds sit overnight until firm. Store in a glass jar out of sight of children and pets. ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————– RSO Lollipops or Hard Candies Recipe Provided by Cannadish Tools: Medium bowl Ice water 1 package of lollipop sticks Lollipops molds or a silicone mat Non-stick spray Candy thermometer Ingredients: 2 cups sugar ⅔ cup light corn syrup 1/4 cup water 1/2 gram RSO 2 tsp flavoring of your choice (lemon, watermelon, strawberry). 2 drops food coloring Notes: Again, just like with the gummies, it’s important to note the THC potency beforehand. Check the packaging to note how many milligrams of THC the RSO contains. Method: Spray the silicone mat/molds with PAM or another cooking spray Combine sugar and corn syrup and water in a small pot over medium heat until completely dissolved. Using a candy thermometer, bring the mixture to a boil until it reaches 310° F (or hard crack). Remove the mixture from heat, and allow to cool in a bowl filled with ice water. During this stage, add flavor, color, and RSO oil (or canna coconut oil) and stir until combined. Work quickly to pour the mixture into the molds (or in dots on the mat) before it begins to harden. Place sticks into the hardening candy, and decorate with sprinkles if desired while still sticky. You can gently reheat the mixture if it begins to harden. Allow to sit for 5 hours, and store in a glass jar away from children and pets. ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————– CANNAOIL / CANNABUTTER MIX 1 Gram of Distillate 1 Bowl or cup of warm water Oil or Butter Oil or Butter-based recipe DIRECTIONS: With your distillate in its container, place…
