There are many cannabis oils in the world, so it is normal not to know them all. Cannabis can be a complex matter when it comes to its products. A kind of oil has been receiving a lot of attention the past few years: the phoenix tears, also known as Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), and full-extract cannabis oil (FECO). It can be found at a Canadian MoM dispensary

RSO is a cannabis oil extract and it has this name because of its creator, Rick Simpson. It contains all of the compounds that are found in the cannabis plant, so this is not one of the types of oils that isolates a specific cannabinoid. 

The History of RSO 

If you are curious about him, Rick Simpson is a Canadian engineer that became a cannabis advocate after treating his skin cancer with potent and homemade cannabis oil. There are some studies that show that THC can be highly effective in killing cancer cells in mice, so Simpson developed a new kind of cannabis oil that is rich in both cannabinoids and terpenes. He started to apply this to himself, and it turns out that it worked. Then, he started to give this oil to skin cancer patients for free, and the oil started to become very popular. Now, there are numerous labs and brands that produce phoenix tears. 

As you may imagine, RSO can be used as a natural remedy to help with some diseases and chronic conditions. Because of its story, many people still use it to help treat skin cancer, but there are people who believe that it has some additional benefits, such as alleviating the symptoms of depression, helping with weight loss, helping to regulate blood sugar levels, improving lung capacity, and more. 

The best part about this oil is the entourage effect. It happens when cannabinoids and other components present in cannabis work together to provide way more benefits than they would if you were taking them alone. As ROS does not isolate any component, all of them work great together. 

How to Use It 

There are some ways in which you can take or use this oil. First, the most famous way of using it is through topical application, when all you have to do is to apply some drops of it to the part of your body that is aching. It helps with itching, skin inflammation, back pain, joint pain, and more.  You can also use it through vaping pens by vaping it or ingesting it by applying some drops under your tongue. And yes, you can also add it to some dishes or cookies.
