Rick Simpson and his life story
The big boom about cannabis came from the Northern America. It happened when a Canadian engineer and self-taught doctor Rick Simpson cured his skin cancer with hemp extract in 2012. He then wrote the book “Run from the Cure” and helped by sharing his experience to cure more than 5,000 people suffering from cancer.
Cannabis Extract – Phoenix Tears – Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)
Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is an extract made from hemp strains that have a high content of cannabinoids – especially THC (Content of THC is typically, about 50-80% THC). Strains, especially INDICA are generally more suitable for treatment of physical illnesses, SATIVA strains appear to be more effective for curing mental diseases.
This cannabis extract, also called oil, is produced by alcohol extraction, even though there is no oil in it. It’s a pure, undiluted hemp extract. Its sale is illegal and it is very narcotic.
CBD hemp oil
CBD became the center of attention in the USA after the parents of daughter Charlotte decided to put off her non-functioning anti-epileptics and began with cannabidiol (CBD) doses. This whole case was mediated by Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN, and America saw the long-known truth about cannabis.
Cannabis extract is produced in different ways – with alcohol, butane, oil, CO2 extraction.
This extract is then dissolved in oil, preferably in hemp seed oil, which has its characteristics that help our body and soul.
Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) and CBD Oil – What is the difference?
It is clear that CBD oil and RSO are different products, although both are made of cannabis. They can even be produced by the same method of alcohol extraction. The difference, however, is that the CBD oil is a cannabis extract dissolved in oil and RSO is just a pure hemp extract. The final products contain different amounts of cannabinoids. RSO contains predominantly THC – a psychoactive substance, CBD oil is higher in CBD – a non-psychoactive substance.
Usage of CBD Oil and RSO
As observable from many stories, there are cases where CBD oil is more effective, in some cases it is recommended to use RSO. It depends on the type of problem and the person as well. Some people think the more THC, the better. But it is not always the truth. On the contrary, some illnesses require higher intake of CBD that sooths, harmonizes the immune system and helps to create new brain neurons.
