Item: R.S.O. (Rick Simpson Oil) – 1g Glass Jars by Natures Fire
RSO is a thick, dark, tar-like cannabis concentrate that comes in gram sized oral syringes or glass containers. Make sure the RSO is stored at room temperature.
The first option for consuming RSO is to measure out a small dose of the RSO into a capsule and swallow the capsule. This will work much like eating an edible. It will take 30 minutes – 1.5 hours to feel the full effects of the dose as it is absorbed through the digestive tract.
A slightly modified version of eating the RSO is to measure your dose out onto a small piece of fruit and eat it. With this method you have the option of holding the fruit in your mouth for a little extra time while chewing. If you hold it in your mouth for 1-5 minutes you will experience the effects of the RSO via sublingual activation which will be much more immediate. As you swallow the fruit and RSO combination you will also experience the longer term benefits as it absorbs through the digestive tract. The downside of consuming the oil directly is that is can be messy dealing with getting the proper size dose out of the container due to the consistency and sticky nature of the RSO.
Another way we can suggest to consume RSO is to turn it into an oil based tincture. This makes consuming the RSO much simpler and allows RSO to be more discreet and portable.
Here is a recipe for turning 1 gram of RSO into an oil based tincture:
(2) ounces cold pressed organic hemp oil
(1) gram RSO
(1) 2 ounce empty glass tincture bottle
Any edible essential oils you might like to add to the tincture
Measure out 2 ounces of organic cold pressed hemp oil and pour into a sauce pan over the lowest heat possible on your stove. Warm the 2 ounces of hemp oil. Squeeze out the entire contents of 1 gram syringe of RSO into the warm hemp oil. Stir until the RSO is completely dissolved (less than 1 minute). Pour RSO infused Hemp oil back into the 2 ounce tincture bottle.
Now you have a 2 ounce bottle of RSO infused oil tincture that will have the same potency of the total milligram rating of your RSO, only now it will be dissolved into a 2 ounce bottle. To determine your dosage use this math: 1) 2 ounce bottle will contain roughly 58ml oil. Most eye-dropper’s should be measure roughly 1ml at maximum capacity.
