An unrefined, potent cannabis oil extracted using ethanol and named after the man who created it and first benefited from it. Canadian Rick Simpson claims he cured his own skin cancer with a custom blend of cannabis oil, which has come to be known as Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), or Phoenix Tears (the name of Rick’s website). Since then, he has touted the benefits of medical marijuana and used to give away his eponymous oil for free.  The creator suggests that people start by taking a dose that is half the size of short-grain dry rice three times daily. He then recommends doubling the dosage after every four days for five weeks, slowly building up a tolerance to muddle the effects of the THC. For the remainder of the 12-week treatment period, keep the dosage at a full gram. Simpson also notes that the effects of the oil may not be felt until an hour after ingestion.    RSO is typically not smoked BUT many people love using it in a vape.  Typically It is applied in the following ways: As a topical rubbed onto the surface of the skin As a sublingual with drops under the tongue; this has the fastest absorption rate As a capsule taken orally; this has the slowest-acting effects, but the effects would last longer.
