Phoenix Tears (or Rick Simpson Oil, RSO). This oil is made using grain alcohol as a solvent to strip the resin, or trichomes/crystals, from the dried plant. The solvent is then evaporated leaving a very thick, molasses-like substance.
The term “Rick Simpson Oil – RSO” is a cannabis oil product. It was developed by Rick Simpson, a Canadian medical marijuana activist. RSO refers to extremely potent decarboxylated extracts produced from strong Indica-dominant strains, which may have THC levels in the 90% range. This natural medication can be used to help with the symptoms of cancer, MS, pain, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, infections, inflammations, blood pressure, depression, sleeping problems and just about any other medical issues that one can imagine. RSO differs from a lot of other cannabis oils because it contains higher levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in marijuana that gets people “high.”
