RSO 60 Grams for sale
RSO 60 Grams for sale medical marijuana activist Rick Simpson, RSO is a cannabis-derived oil that has an especially high concentration of marijuana’s psychoactive compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC has some pretty potent effects that, when concentrated, have shown signs of being able to treat a variety of ailments. RSO is generally made with indica-heavy strains of marijuana, and Simpson himself recommends making your own RSO.
By using a high-THC strain like Cannabis indica, RSO’s sedative effects supposedly aid in healing the body from a variety of ailments.
Simpson originally created the so-called “Rick Simpson oil” in 2003, when he was diagnosed with a form of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma. Simpson had had success in treating other ailments in the past, and decided to try treating his skin cancer with high-THC cannabis oil. Simpson reportedly read a study by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute which showed cancerous cell regression in mice by using THC and decided to try it. Simpson allegedly applied the oil to bandages and left them on his cancerous spots for several days – after which the spots allegedly disappeared. And despite his own doctor’s refusal to acknowledge the benefits, Simpson began making his oil and proclaiming the benefits.
But, what is actually in RSO?
RSO can be made by reducing cannabis in alcohol (typically 99% isopropyl alcohol), which concentrates the plant’s compounds like THC. For this reason, RSO is typically made with THC-heavy cannabis strains like indica.
RSO is perhaps most commonly used as an alternative to cancer treatments. But the oil has also been used to treat a variety of other health issues including asthma, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, depression, inflammation and a variety of other conditions. Since RSO is high in THC, it possesses similar medicinal qualities to the compound itself. THC has been known to potentially treat the same conditions and many more – including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and even eating disorders.

One of RSO’s principle uses and alleged benefits is as an alternative treatment for cancers.
Simpson pulled from an original study that showed THC being used to reduce cancerous tumors in mice. But other studies have shown similar results. A 2014 study by the American Association for Cancer Research showed that THC and CBD were helpful when used alongside traditional radiation treatments for cancer. In fact, the study showed that the two compounds may be useful in enhancing the effectiveness of the radiation treatment due to the THC and CBD may help better condition cells for reception to radiation therapy.
Additionally, some studies have shown that the use of CBD and THC (both of which are present in RSO, although THC is more concentrated) can slow the progress of cancer cells or even stop them altogether. In fact, medical cannabis supporter Dr. Aung-Din, M.D. — a general neurology and neuro-psychiatry specialist — told TheStreet earlier this year that he has seen massive improvement in a variety of areas with cannabis use – including cancer.
“I’m treating patients with PTSD, fibromyalgia, cancers [and am] finding cancers regressing when chemotherapy was not helping, so it’s a pretty amazing journey,” Dr. Aung-Din said.
