RSO is a thick and sticky substance that is honestly dark brown or black in color, and RSO is usually packaged in a syringe for easy application. Rick Simpson Oil or RSO comes from the entire plant! The product retains every good part of the cannabis plant including the cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes! Each one of these products has A major benefit when helping my body heal. RSO has already been activated and decarboxylated. There is no heat necessary for the medicine to work. It does not have to be smoked or vaped, however most RSO products are ingested orally or applied to the skin topically, but one of my favorite ways to use RSO is to bake the product into a brownie or a cookie, and baked goods with RSO actually help ease my weekly aches and pains! Shortly after I got my medical marijuana card, I went to the dispensary to look for a product that would help with the pain and inflammation in my hands. I was finding it hard to get through a day at work without a large amount of pain. Tylenol and ibuprofen are not helping much at all. RSO products entirely changed my life. I baked cookies and brownies using a small amount of the RSO. I also put some of the RSO products in a special hand cream that I keep by the bedside. I use it every night and each morning before I go to work. The aches and pains that I felt in my hands are much less debilitating now that I medicate with marijuana.
