What is “RSO”?

You may or may not have heard of RSO, then let me enlighten you! RSO stands for the creator, Rick Simpson (Oil). He created this potent medicine after being diagnosed with skin cancer. Not only did this new found invention help ease the pain he was experiencing— it cured him of his cancer. If it wasn’t for the use of cannabis helping Rick with everyday pains and aches, he may not have thought to invent RSO. Rick decided to take his health into his own hands after being diagnosed with cancer and take an alternative/holistic route to cure his cancer.

RSO is concentrate made with all of the properties of a cannabis plant, which means that RSO is considered to be Full Spectrum. It’s a potent concentrated oil that is dark, very thick and extremely sticky. At this point you might be asking, "How can this form of cannabis be consumed?”, Well, here are some ways you can partake of this medicine: It can be taken on it's own, mixed in a drink (but this might be a little difficult to mix in to the liquid), eaten in/on food like a hard candy or a cracker, you can dab it, put some in your joint or just put it directly into your mouth. Not only is it a cure for cancer, it helps aid those with asthma, body aches and pains, as well as problematic skin issues and more!

While we are not doctors at Positive High, we are advocates for alternative holistic medicine. Check with your physician before proceeding with any new medicines, and like Rick you can take your health into your own hands. Always remember when trying a new medicine proceed with caution, dose low and slow. If you are looking for an alternative medicine to help you with your ailments perhaps you might want to do some more delving into this information!
