A Closer Look at RSO

RSO, or Rick Simpson Oil, is a medical cannabis concentrate known for its high potency and therapeutic properties. RSO is named after Rick Simpson, a Canadian medical cannabis activist who popularized the use of this potent medical cannabis concentrate for medicinal purposes in the early 2000s.

While Rick Simpson himself is still a huge proponent of RSO, the RSO found today in medical cannabis dispensaries is made in a far more technical way to ensure the utmost quality and purity for medical cannabis customers. The RSO concentrate has grown to be one of the most popular options for individuals looking for therapeutic support from medical cannabis.

How Is RSO Made?

To make RSO, medical cannabis flower is typically soaked in a solvent such as ethanol or isopropyl alcohol to extract cannabinoids and other beneficial compounds like terpenes and flavonoids. The mixture is then strained, and the solvents are carefully evaporated to produce a highly concentrated oil. Various processors use different methodologies, but today’s RSO is far more pure and free of residual solvents thanks to modern processing technologies.

The Benefits of RSO Concentrates

The primary attribute that makes RSO so unique compared to other medical cannabis concentrates is it contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids and compounds from the plant. Therefore, you are essentially getting a highly concentrated form of medical cannabis that is as close to the natural flower as possible in terms of chemical makeup.

Many in the scientific cannabis community are highly interested in the “full-spectrum” experience when it comes to the medicinal value of cannabis. Cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and others are thought to enhance the therapeutic properties of one another through what is usually referred to as the entourage effect. Further, the terpenes and other plant constituents may also play a role in the same synergistic actions.

In other words, RSO may be valuable because all the plant components work together for more profound biological activity when introduced to the body. This exact action has grown to be an area of focus with medical cannabis extracts like RSO.

What Is RSO Good for?

While there are many anecdotal reports of RSO being great for many ailments, there are very few studies carried out on RSO specifically. However, there have been quite a few studies on the potential benefits of various types of cannabis extracts. Some things RSO may be good for include:

How Potent is RSO?

Due to its concentrated nature, RSO can be significantly more potent than traditional medical cannabis flower or other medical cannabis products, making it a potent option for medicinal use. Generally, the potency of RSO in Ohio tends to range anywhere from 65 to 75% THC.
