Who is Rick Simpson?



For Rick Simpson, the journey into the world of medicinal cannabis started in 2003 when he noticed multiple bumps on his arm. His suspicion of cancer was confirmed when he was diagnosed with skin cancer. 


Rick Simpson had previously used cannabis to help relieve tinnitus and other symptoms related to an earlier incident in his life. Furthermore, he read into various medical journals that referenced cannabinoids to contain anti-cancerous properties. It was at this point that he began self-medicating with cannabis oil – regardless of the legal repercussions that were in store for him.


Rick Simpson began making his own cannabis oil at home, which was later dubbed as Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO oil for short. Rick Simpson used naphtha to extract the cannabinoids. Most patients nowadays, however, prefer to use high-grade alcohol as the primary solvent to extract the cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. 


Rick Simpson then used his oil topically and noticed after a few treatments that the bumps on his skin disappeared. From this point on, Rick Simpson made it his goal to share his RSO oil with the rest of the world. He went on to produce full extract cannabis oil for those in need-free of charge. 


However, lawmakers caught up with Rick Simpson and his cannabis oil crusade. Multiple fines, raids, and arrests never deterred him from teaching others how to make RSO.


What’s Inside Rick Simpson Oil?

Rso for cancer


RSO oil, which has also been called Phoenix Tears, is a highly concentrated cannabis oil that contains an abundance of THC. However, depending on the cannabis strain, the final oil may contain a high THC: CBD ratio or vice versa, along with all other naturally-occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.



In other words, RSO oil is a full-spectrum extract that is highly potent.


It’s important to note that Rick Simpson Oil is not CBD oil. The high levels of THC are the defining line between RSO oil and non-THC products, such as CBD oil. CBD oils must test below a 0.3% THC threshold, which makes it clearly different from RSO oil.


Lastly, Rick Simpson Oil is produced from THC-rich cannabis, whereas CBD oil is produced from hemp.

How to Make RSO (Rick Simpson Oil)

Here you can watch a tutorial: How to make a small batch of Rick Simpson Oil at home

If you reside in a legal state, many legal marijuana dispensaries will carry lab-tested RSO oil.


Rick Simpson always advocated for patients to make their own RSO oil. The primary reason for this is to reduce the overall cost and to verify that the RSO oil that you consume is, in fact, pure cannabis oil. There are many black market cannabis companies that claim to have RSO oil; however, many of them charge exorbitant prices for a mediocre product that they know is not the real deal. 

By following Rick Simpson’s advice, you too can make your own RSO oil at home, and by doing so, you’ll ensure that the final product is rich in cancer-fighting cannabinoids.


Making RSO oil at home is a fairly straightforward process. All you’ll need is:

  • Cannabis
  • Alcohol (99%)
  • Large bucket
  • Mixing device
  • Sieve
  • Rice cooker

By mixing cannabis and alcohol together, the cannabinoids will separate from the plant matter. Once strained, the remaining liquid will be filled with rich RSO oil. 


However, the last step in making RSO oil is to “activate” it. This is done by heating it to a specific level that ensures the THC is in its active form. The process is called decarboxylation, which means that the inactive form of THC is activated through the use of heat.  This step is accomplished with the help of a rice cooker. There are other methods, however, a rice cooker is a convenient appliance that most homes have. The RSO oil must never exceed 300℉ -or you’ll risk rendering the cannabis oil unusable. 

 Ideally, the temperature should be between 200-220℉. As the mixture evaporates, continue adding more RSO oil into the rice cooker. Once fully evaporated, you’ll be left with a thick oil that you can use to fill small plastic applicators for later use.

Cannabis/ RSO Oil - Relevant Research and News

What Future Holds for Cannabinoids in Breast Cancer Therapy?

The potential of cannabinoids to treat many different health problems is being investigated by many studies. Kiskova et al. published a paper in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, where they discussed the possible future use of cannabinoids in breast cancer therapy.

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women across the globe. The severity of breast cancer and health problems is even more obvious when we look at its aggressive subtypes that affect young women. The paper above showed that data from some studies identified various anti-tumor activities of plant-derived and synthetic CBs. However, some pieces of research found that cannabinoids could contribute to tumor progression.

The most well-known cannabinoids, CBD and THC, have anti-inflammatory and antitumor effects. They act through cannabinoid receptors in the brain, especially the CB2 receptor, which is present in the immune system cells. These receptors are also found in breast cancer cells. Basically, the presence of the cannabinoid receptor determines the effects of CBs. This mechanism in the body holds the potential for individualized treatment of breast cancer in the future.

CBD combined with THC can alleviate pain significantly. The use of cannabinoids can block the progression of cancer cells and prevent cell growth by encouraging cells to self-destruct. While CBs sure look like promising agents in breast cancer therapy, more studies are needed to shed a light on their full mechanism of action, and also to ensure safety to patients who undergo CB treatment for breast cancer.
