Buy, order, or make Rick-Simpson oil
If you’re interested in cannabis oil, you’ll probably have heard of Rick Simpson oil (or RSO oil), which is known for its high THC content. Due to its high THC content, this oil is not legally available in the UK or other countries in Europe.
In 1997, Rick Simpson was working in a hospital in Canada when he fell from a ladder and sustained a serious head injury while working with asbestos in a poorly ventilated room. This caused a severe shock to Rick Simpson’s nervous system.
After his fateful accident, Simpson suffered from its ill effects for years. The medication he was prescribed hardly had any effect. In fact, his symptoms only seemed to be getting worse. After watching a documentary that highlighted the possible medicinal benefits of cannabis, Rick ended up inquiring about medical marijuana. His GP, however, refused to consider it as a course of treatment, leading Simpson to eventually acquire cannabis of his own accord.
In 2003, three strange bumps appeared on Rick’s arm. After getting them checked by his doctor and receiving a highly unpleasant diagnosis, Simpson decided to treat these bumps himself using cannabis oil. While we aren’t legally permitted to disclose what happened next, you can find out exactly what happened on the internet. Even though Rick was benefiting from using cannabis products, his GP didn’t budge and still refused to recognize cannabis as a course of treatment. This spurred Rick to produce and subsequently distribute cannabis oil to thousands of people in need, all completely free of charge. Ever since, the use of cannabis oil has skyrocketed in popularity. Indeed, many people have discovered the medical benefits of marijuana even though cannabis products still aren’t legal in many countries.
Rick Simpson oil: the recipe
As previously states, Rick Simpson oil isn’t freely available for sale or distribution in the Netherlands due to its high THC content. We do, however, offer CBD oil in our online store, which is an excellent (and legal) alternative. If you’d still like to try Rick Simpson oil, you can use the recipe provided below. To produce 60 grams of oil, you will need 500 grams of weed and 6 liters of solvent (98% ethyl alcohol), as well as a bucket, a rice cooker, and a pan. To prepare this oil, you just have to follow the following steps:
- Place the cannabis in a plastic bucket and pour the solvent over the plant materials until they are completely immersed in the solvent.
- Stir and crush the mixture for approximately three minutes until the cannabis and solvent dissolve into a mixture.
- Slowly pour the remaining solvent into another bucket and pour it over the plant materials once more until they are immersed in the solvent.
- Pour the plant mixture through a coffee filter into a clean container.
- Set up a rice cooker in a well-ventilated area. With the heat on the lowest setting, allow the mixture to gently boil off the solvent. Make sure to stir occasionally.
- When the solvent has evaporated, transfer the contents to a pot and let them simmer over low heat. Doing so allows the last of the solvent mixture to evaporate. This process might take several hours.
Be aware that this process is not entirely without risk. If even a single spark reaches the alcohol during the evaporation process, it can cause an explosion. It’s therefore extremely important to carry out these steps in a well-ventilated room with open windows and/or fans on during the entire process. You can also order CBD oil from our online store, which is a safer alternative.
Why prefer CBD oil?
CBD oil, which is also known as hemp oil, has a number of advantages over cannabis oil. Because cannabis oil has a high concentration of THC, it can get users high, and which isn’t a thrilling prospect for everyone. Cannabis oil also contains little to no CBD, while CBD oil, as its name implies, does. That’s why many people who swear by Rick Simpson oil supplement their intake by also consuming CBD oil. Although CBD oil contains a small percentage of THC, this percentage is negligible. CBD oils are therefore not classified as a controlled substance.
This makes CBD oil also a lot easier to acquire than Rick Simpson oil. It can easily be ordered from our web store and arrive at your doorstep in a matter of days. Doing so will prevent you from having to purchase illegal weed and taking unnecessary risks.
CBD oil is now more popular than ever, and not without reason. Many studies are being conducted on the possible benefits of CBD.
We would like to explain why CBD is so popular. Once you’ve familiarized yourself with this incredible compound, you will surely understand why people, including doctors, clinicians, and researchers, are so enthusiastic about it.
As we have demonstrated, hemp oil contains large quantities of CBD, which is why this oil is also known as CBD oil. Of the at least 113 cannabinoids that have been isolated to date, CBD and THC are among the most well-known. Scientists first discovered how cannabinoids work in the 1990s and found evidence that the human body actually produces its own cannabinoids using its native endocannabinoid system. Those cannabinoids are similar to the exogenous cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant.
It was also discovered that this system controls and regulates several important bodily functions, including:
- Immune system
- Pain perception
- Motor skills
It goes without saying that these are all extremely important bodily functions: without our endocannabinoid system, we would be severely impaired in our daily functioning.
Because CBD is also a cannabinoid similar to the ones produced by the human body, it can also interact with receptors in the endocannabinoid system and in doing so enhances the activity of the body’s indigenous cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids, then, are therefore indispensable for the proper functioning of the body. Research has shown that CBD can affect the user’s endocannabinoid system by interacting with specific receptors and help them function optimally.
Because the endocannabinoid system is so crucial to our well being, many researchers and doctors have become increasingly enthusiastic about the many possibilities and applications of CBD. Their many benefits also explain why so many people now regularly use CBD.
