How Rick Simpson Oil Is Produced?
Good quality Rick Simpson Oil, which is hard to find is, for the most part, made carefully by extracting the THC using 99.9% Pure Isopropyl Alchohol, the plant matter; which should be a quality organic Indica dominant strain is carefully filtered from the solution and then finally the alcohol which contains the goodness of the cannabis is slowly heated, which extracts the alcohol via evaporation.
Providing the oil is heated carefully at a consistent temperature, all the alcohol is extracted without damaging the integrity of the oil.
Once this process is complete, the oils are then transferred to 1ml oral syringes and then stored in vacuum packed wrappers and then stored in a temperature-controlled environment.
Very few companies go to these lengths, so far we have found a few small companies, so far our favourite is RickSimpson.is a small company based in Barcelona; we will be visiting other companies around the world soon and look forward to giving interviews and making more articles and videos about this.
One reason why we love RickSimpson.is not just the pride they take in their work, but one thing that stands out is their work on improvement and research they carry out in-house. In a recent interview, they said they are looking at experimenting with other forms of extracting that would make an even more potent form of Rick Simpson Oil; which I would be more than eager to try :-)
Cannabis SUPER OILS?
RickSimpson.is enthusiastically talked about a more potent form of THC oil and they are currently working on making the equipment perform more labour intensive but far stronger oil.
Rick Simpson didn’t just pull his theory about Cannabis and cancer out of thin air, it was a process of small discoveries which happened over time.
Many years ago, Rick Simpson purchased an inexpensive glass vaporizer, because Rick had learned that using one of these devices had to be very good for the lungs. At the time, he was already producing high-quality oils from many different varieties of medicinal Indica varieties, so instead of vaporizing the material of the buds, Rick Simpson decided to use some of these oils to produce the vapour that he inhaled.
Since he was a smoker, the use of the vaporizer has made me cough a lot, after inhaling the steam produced by this device. But since he felt this was fine for his lungs, he continued to use the vaporizer 2 or 3 times a week, although Rick didn’t like all the cough associated with its use.
Over time, the glass bottle on top of the vaporizer, which collected the vapour from all the different oils Rick was producing and vaporizing, started to turn golden yellow. As he continued to vaporize all these different oils, the cannabinoids they contained continued to accumulate inside the bottle until gold drops began to form. Then the tears started to flow into the container.
In the past, Rick had collected some of the resins from different pipes that he had used to smoke cannabis and many of the various oils that produced, in the hope that they could still contain something precious? But Rick Simpson soon discovered that these resins, which had already been burned while smoking, were useless, so he didn’t bother trying to collect this substance any longer.
One day he decided that he would have to clean the bottle on the top of the vaporizer, to merely dispose of the resins that had accumulated over time, because Rick thought that they would have no value in medicine or otherwise. So therefore Rick Simpson warmed up some alcohol and then used it to dissolve the resins, only by applying a small amount of pressure with your finger to help remove the gums, which had collected after months of use.
Rick Simpson’s Process
Rick then took the bottle out to throw the contents away, and he was about to do it when suddenly he realized that the cannabinoids inside the container had never really been burned, they had only been vaporized. So Rick Simpson emptied the contents of the bottle into a stainless steel measuring cup and put it on a coffee warmer, to evaporate the alcohol and see if this substance still contained any potency. Within about 30 minutes, the drink had vanished, leaving behind a beautiful transparent amber oil, which seemed to have a reddish tinge.
But he still thought this substance was probably useless because everything he had learned had stated that if cannabinoids were exposed to light and heat, their potency would decrease reasonably quickly. The vaporizer Rick was using was kept on a counter near a window, so it received a lot of light every day, and the cannabinoids had been heated many times since he used the vaporizer quite often. So he still wasn’t expecting what would happen next, when he put a minimal amount of this oil on cigarette paper and then added tobacco. Rick Simpson had smoked joints tied with high-quality oils countless times, but the effects of this oil seemed to be many times stronger than any oil he had ever encountered before.
R.S.O Oil and other ailments
After taking the first puff from this joint, Rick experienced what he can only describe as a cough attack and immediately felt the need to lie down. The potency of this substance seemed to be beyond imagination and had the same effect on a friend of his, who claimed he had never smoked anything, which has been so powerful all his life.
At that time, Rick Simpson had already supplied oil to many people, who used it to deal with their medical problems, and, due to the effects of the oils, skin cancer had become very simple to cure in most cases. Often people who had skin cancer had told me that during the oil treatment, they had experienced mild traction sensations in the area to be treated.
Since Rick had a patient under treatment at the time who suffered from skin cancer, he decided to try this new oil that he had started calling Super Oil on his skin cancer, to see what he would do. Within an hour of applying this new oil, the patient told me that the traction sensations were so extreme that it gave him some discomfort in the treated area. So what this patient experienced had said to him that this new Super Oil was probably much more effective, even in the treatment of cancer and other medical conditions.
Rick Simpson on potency
At that point, Rick Simpson had come into contact with a couple of people who are considered experts in this field. Still, when he told them about these new effects on oils, they simply swept it away as if it meant nothing. he also had come in contact with a lady named Shona Banda from the United States, who had used the oil she had collected from a vaporizer, to treat Crohn’s disease very effectively and was now back in a healthy state. But after examining the potency of the oils obtained by vaporizers, I learned that they are usually only in the 80% THC range, so he was a little disappointed with these results.

The oils that he produced using the same methods that he had shown to the public often turned out to be 90% THC or even more, so this also made me doubt what I thought I had discovered. Since he thought these experts probably knew a lot more about this topic than he did, Rick was silent on this topic for some time, because he didn’t want to make claims that hadn’t been proven. But from time to time, the effects he had witnessed with this new use of oils came back to me, so Rick Simpson decided to inform the public about what I had learned.
So what’s the potential of Rick Simpson Oil?
In the hope this oil to even higher levels of purity and medical potency, and by doing so, this should provide patients with severe medical conditions with an even better chance of survival. Rick Simpson had vaporized high-quality oils to vaporize cannabinoids, so he realized that this was probably the reason the oil he had received from my vaporizer was much more potent than any oil I had seen in the past.
With this in mind, Rick Simpson had come to believe that oils collected in this way could be much more useful than even the high-quality oils that he used to produce to treat any number of severe medical conditions.
If what Rick strongly suspect is faithful, by merely vaporizing the cannabinoids with high-quality extracts, or resins that have been cleaned and dried correctly and then collecting the cannabinoids they contain, from the dome of an adequately designed vaporizer. It could very well take this drug to a whole new level of healing ability. For many, this could mean the difference between life and death for those who currently suffer.
One could only say that the oils he produced had incredible healing abilities. However, they would have contained small quantities of substances such as vegetable waxes, which could be removed without affecting the healing properties of the remaining oils. By vaporizing these extracts or resins and allowing the vaporized cannabinoids to accumulate on the dome of the vaporizer, all the unwanted substances contained in the extracts or resins would have remained in the vaporizer bowl.
Using this method would undoubtedly bring the resulting oils after they were collected from the vaporizer dome, up to their highest purity levels. But by removing this small amount of unwanted substances from the oil, does it still not explain why the resulting oil can be much more active in medicine? Experts informed him that the method he showed to the public regarding the production of these oils had achieved perfect decarboxylation. So why do the oils collected from the dome of a vaporizer after the high-quality oils have been vaporized appear to be much more medically active and more powerful even when smoked?
At the moment, he still doesn’t have an answer to this question. Rick Simpson strongly suspects that the higher temperatures inside the vaporizer were having a therapeutically beneficial effect on the power of the oils, which we currently don’t understand yet.
There are problems for the average person associated with this method of producing the purest and most therapeutically active oils so that I will list some of them below. As I said, I tried several varieties of Indica produced oils, which are now commonly called Rick Simpson Oil or RSO. But most people don’t have access, as he did, to many different cannabis strains that can produce oils that have various healing abilities. So this will probably prevent most people from mixing the different types of fats in the vaporizer dome, which he believes are necessary to produce these new super oils and bring them up to their highest therapeutic levels.
In Rick’s opinion, to improve the purity of the oils and the healing power, several different oils should be vaporized to allow the cannabinoids of these different oils to mix in the dome of the vaporizer. Indica strains can produce oils that contain various healing abilities, so to produce what he commonly calls a cure, it is necessary to vaporize many different types of oil from different Indica strains. So the resulting oil collected from the vaporizer dome would have a wide variety of healing abilities.
Indica RSOs and cancer
For the most part, Indica strains are useful in the treatment of cancer. Still, patients also often suffer from other medical problems, so to provide an oil that would work even better for these patients to solve their other medical difficulties.
Rick Simpson has always preferred to mix the oils of different cannabis varieties, and the results obtained from these mixed oils have shown me that mixing these different oils was an excellent idea.
Furthermore, it would take some time to vaporize the medicinal cannabinoids from these different oils and allow the cannabinoids to form layer by layer inside the dome of the vaporizer so that they could mix and then be collected. Mixing different medicinal extracts before they are vaporized should also have the same effect, so I’ll leave it to you, regarding the method you choose to use. The commonly available vaporizers are unsuitable for this task because they usually have tiny domes to collect cannabinoids and are often not airtight, so this can allow some of the cannabinoids to escape into the surrounding atmosphere. But with a little know-how and some mechanical skills, I think many of us could build a unit like the one I’m going to describe, which could do this job much more effectively.
Rick Simpson on scaling
To produce these oils on a larger scale using this method, you should build a vaporizer that has a large bowl to hold the extracts or resins you intend to vaporize, and the vaporizer would also require a much broader collection dome. Also, checking the dome temperature while the unit is running may prove beneficial. So cannabinoids would stick more easily inside the dome, and this could be accomplished with the use of a fan, or other ways of controlling the temperature of the domes while it is running.
The collection dome could then be installed on one corner, which would allow cannabinoids to flow slowly to the lowest point of the vaults, where a small drain valve would be connected to drain the resulting oil. It would take some time for cannabinoids to build up to a level often enough that gravity would then cause them to start running towards the lowest point of the domes. But if a small amount of external heat were applied to the outside of the dome, this would allow cannabinoids to run much faster towards the lower point of the vaults.
Rick Simpson also thinks a unit like this would work much more efficiently if a slow-moving device such as a fan or an impeller were installed inside the dome that rotated from 60 to 120 pm. Which would then force the cannabinoids outward, so that they could stick more quickly inside the dome?
The thermostatically-controlled heating element that heats the bowl should only reach a temperature of 400 degrees Fahrenheit or 204.44 degrees Celsius to perform this process correctly. Because when the contents of the container have reached this temperature, whatever the available cannabinoid content contained in the bowl, it will be slowly vaporized.
The speed with which this occurs depends on the amount of extract or resin contained in the bowl and can take a long time before all cannabinoids adhere inside the dome.
He may be tempted to add more heat to accomplish this task more quickly simply, but I think this could harm the medical potency of the extract produced. So he would prefer to do it much slower, using temperatures that he knows wouldn’t damage the power of the finished extracts.
A device like this could be produced in any size. But the way he sees it more significant is better, especially if you want to produce larger quantities to treat many patients.
INCREASED POWER OF LOWER GRADE OILS
This new method I have just described could also be used to increase the healing power of oils produced using other means, or if you were forced to produce oil from the lower quality starting material. If a more moderate grade oil is placed in the vaporizer bowl, it may vaporize medicinal cannabinoids and leave any unwanted substances in the pan.
This way, you could lose some weight, but the resulting oil collected from the vaporizer dome should be much more medically effective than the oil you started with since it now only contains pure cannabinoids. Remember, it’s the quality of the oil that doesn’t matter, so if you need a higher quality oil to treat a patient more effectively, you may lose some weight, but you will get a much more effective medicine.
ARGUMENTS OF THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY
I have no use for pharmaceutical companies who now wish to be involved in this production of oils because all they seem to be concerned about is making money. He is sure that whatever they provided, would have a very extravagant price. The only legitimate claim that pharmaceutical companies could make regarding the production of these oils is that they could produce this drug in a purer way than the average person can do. But using a simple device like the one he has described, almost everyone could create these oils in their purest form possible, and this would eliminate most of the arguments the pharmaceutical industry might have.
The use of solvents to produce these oils could also be eliminated if we were to use resin collectors to obtain the medicinal resins and then clean them with pure water. After drying, the gums could be vaporized into oils, which have incredible healing powers. In a little while, Rick believes we will be able to determine which cannabinoid levels are required to treat each disease most effectively. Once we have this knowledge and simple methods to accurately test cannabinoid levels, become available in the extracts we are producing, and we know how to create our high-quality medicinal oils in their purest form for therapeutic use. Rick does not doubt that we will no longer need most of the drugs, and this will probably result in the end of the manipulation, which we have all endured at the hands of these so-called pharmaceutical companies.
Rick Simpson’s ‘Intelectual Property’
Since vaporizers of many different varieties are already commonly available, he doesn’t see how a unit like the one he described could be patented. Rick Simpson would have a shallow opinion of anyone who has tried to do it. he considers this new method of producing extracts as my intellectual property because it seems that he is the one who discovered it and brought this information to public attention.
Since Rick Simpson don’t think patents should limit anything related to medicine, or the equipment needed to produce it, he decided to make this knowledge known, so others who are interested in making their extracts could benefit from expertise.
Rick intends to highlight his line of high-quality equipment, such as the vaporizer that has just been described and since he believes that others who manufacture products like this, often tend to overload the public, he will make the unit that he intends to distribute, available at the lowest possible price.
From Rick Simpson’s point of view, we must all have the right to produce our extracts, if we really have to define ourselves as genuinely free and this also applies to any necessary equipment, to bring these extracts to their maximum medical power.
So here is something that everything you do yourself should be able to build without much difficulty, and we’re sure once you see the healing powers of the extracts produced in this way. So we believe you will find the time and effort necessary to build this equipment, to be spent well, and that it should also eliminate any worries about the residual solvent left in the finished extracts.
