The difference between RSO and CBD oil

CBD oil contains only CBD, often from industrial hemp plants, while RSO has a high concentration of THC — at least 20 percent — and the full range of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

 

In 2011, physician and researcher Ethan Russo found that the medicinal effects of CBD increase when they’re combined with other cannabinoids. Simpson claims that his oils produced two to six percent (2%-6%) CBD, but emphasizes that THC content needs to be high in order to treat cancer.

 

Although it is popularly believed that CBD oil is only for epileptic patients and RSO oil is only for cancer patients, early research, including information reported by the US National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society, has indicated that CBD possesses cancer-inhibiting properties in some types of tumors. Research is still preliminary, because of the prohibition of cannabis in many countries, so the full effectiveness and side effects of cannabinoids to treat cancer are not well established yet.

 

That said, do keep in mind RSO is highly intoxicating because of the THC. In other words, it’ll get you high while CBD won’t.

Is RSO considered a Full Spectrum Cannabis Oil?

Full Spectrum Cannabis Oil (FSCO), sometimes referred to as Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO), is a term used for cannabis oil products that capture the full range of bioactive compounds created within the plant’s glandular trichomes without altering their composition in the process.

 

This includes flavonoids, phenols, fatty acids, and, most importantly, a variety of terpenes and cannabinoids in their natural acid form.

 

While the RSO extraction process is capable of extracting the full range of compounds, the process of removing the solvent from the solution requires heat. Heat changes the cannabinoids from their acid form into their neutral, or activated, form in a process called decarboxylation (i.e. THCA decarboxylates into THC and CBDA into CBD). The heat also volatilizes most of the terpenes that were initially extracted, leaving an oil that may not have all the bioactive compounds that were available in the plant’s trichome glands.  buy Rick Simpson Oil online
