What is Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)?

If you have searched through a recreational cannabis dispensary menu in MA., you most likely have come across something called RSO or “Rick Simpson Oil”. RSO has recently become extremely popular for many people looking for pain/stress relief during the day and for sleep at night. It is available in a great deal of forms, from individually dosed capsules to larger applicators and even topicals…but what is it?

How is Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) Made?

Rick Simpson Oil is a full spectrum cannabis oil which has been extracted using a solvent which, in most cases, is grain alcohol. The grain alcohol is then mixed with raw Indica buds which can absorb a great deal of the beneficial terpenes and cannabinoids that we have spoken about in previous articles. After, the solvent is boiled off and refined into a finished product which will be dark in color with a thick consistency.

Should I buy Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)?

Rick Simpson Oil can be extremely potent, therefore it is highly recommended to start off small and work up to a therapeutic level of dosages. Many users report reduced levels of anxiety and an aid for sleep. If you need more assistance with any of the RSO products at Holyoke Cannabis please feel free to call 413-322-8611 or stop by and ask a budtender!
