3 – Crush the plant material using a stick of clean untreated (chemical free) wood or some such device. Even though the starting material has been dampened with the solvent, you will find that the material can be readily crushed.
6 – Pour the solvent-oil mix off the plant material into another bucket. You have just stripped the plant material of about 80% of its THC.
2 – Dampen the material with the solvent you are using. Many solvents can be used. I like to use pure naphtha but it costs $500 for a 45-gallon drum. You can use 99% isopropyl alcohol, which you can find in your local drug stores. Alcohol absorbs more chlorophyll from the plant material than naphtha does. This gives oils made with alcohol a darker colour but does not diminish the potency of the oil to any noticeable degree. Ether, naphtha or butane and many other solvents can produce oils that are amber and transparent. Granted these clear oils do look better but dark oil can be just as potent. If the process is done properly, little or no solvent residue is left in the oil. I have been consuming oils produced using different solvents for eight years with no harmful effects. You will require about two gallons of solvent to strip the THC off one pound of dry starting material. 500 milliliters of solvent should be more than enough to strip the THC from one ounce of hemp starting material.
21- Pour the hot oil into a bottle; or as in the video suck it up into a plastic syringe. Putting the oil in a plastic syringe makes it very easy to dispense the medicine.
I’ve made the RSO so how do I take it and how much do I take? The different methods of using RSO have different effects as outlined below.
14- Continue adding solvent-oil mix as the level in the rice cooker decreases until it is all in the cooker. 15- Add a few drops of water to the solvent-oil mix as the level comes down for the last time. The amount of water added depends on how much starting material you had in the beginning. If I am producing oil from a pound of good bud, I usually add about ten drops of water.
Just remember that if you ingest the RSO it can take a couple of hours to start having effects that you would notice.
My hope is that along with legalization and the cleansing of cannabis convictions, Rick will be welcomed back into the evolving but nascent cannabis industry. He would be greeted as a founding member, at least by myself.
It is reprehensible that this man has been held accountable for simply publishing a recipe that dates back millennia, but Canadian authorities have made it their mission to pursue him around the world. Since he has paid the dues it seems only fair that his name is attached to this process.
What is RSO? How do you make RSO? Editor's Note: I've had the rare pleasure of "meeting" Rick Simpson on a conference call a few years ago from an undisclosed location around the globe. There was a blanket draped behind him so none of the participants knew exactly where in the world the call emanate
What is Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)?
(A useful resource you can use to easily figure out your edible dosage is with this website called How To Edibles. Here, you can find a wealth of information on the science of cannabis edibles.)
These simple, delicious brownies will help Pennsylvania’s patients medicate effectively with RSO (Rick Simpson Oil).
Ingredients for RSO Brownies:
RSO oil may also be ingested orally. A tiny dose of oil, the size of a grain of rice, is best for people start; if your tolerance is lower you may need less. This is a great way for people who don’t have the ability or time to dedicate to make a batch of brownies. You may place a drop of RSO on almost any food and ingest it immediately to achieve the desired effects.
- Melt the butter on a low temperature in a double boiler.
- A normal saucepan works just fine since it only needs to be liquified, it doesn’t need to be boiling.
- Reduce heat and add RSO to melted butter (along with sunflower lecithin, if desired)
- Ensure it all mixes thoroughly to ensure proper distributed of the THC throughout.
- Remove the pan from heat and let butter cool.
- When the butter is done cooling, Preheat oven to 215 degrees Fahrenheit (102 degrees Celsius).
- In a large bowl, mix the brownie ingredients together: Butter, egg, water, brownie mix (add sunflower lecithin at this stage, if you wish)
The form of cannabis known as Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO, is a concentrated form of cannabis with several medical benefits, yet most commonly associated with cancer. RSO is also successfully treats various other health issues including anxiety, depression, inflammation, pain, and even asthma.
From dispensary to dessert dish, these know how to make medication time extra sweet.
- 1 gram of RSO
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 egg
- Cookie sheet
- ¼ of a cup of water
- 1 brownie mix of your choice – (Betty Crocker’s classic fudge browniesare an affordable option that you can find at almost any store and work great.
- Sunflower Lecithin – (This is optional, you can find it here.) Some people recommend adding 1-2 drops of sunflower lecithin to the RSO and butter mixture since lecithin is an emulsifier (This allows the THC to take faster effect on your body by allowing the butter and THC to better bond.)
This is a fantastic recipe for people who are looking for a simple recipe that can be easily replicated. Beginner or experienced patients can enjoy the benefits that RSO offers while getting to showcase some cooking skill at the same time!
