Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) Official Thread

Jun 20, 2018
Hey guys,

I'm new to the forum here. Been lurking for a while. I'll get to my story later, but wanted to say a couple things:

1) Let's make this a positive forum. Every single thing I have read online so far makes all of this so much worse. We are going to get through this - one day at a time.

2)The two best options for recovery I have seen are FINASTERIDE and RICK SIMPSON OIL. After reading the propecia forums, until 10+ people recover taking finasteride, I won't. It's poison. Which brings me to RICK SIMPSON OIL.

I've read a few accounts of this stuff healing people from their post accutane symptoms. I have only read of one person (tanedout) saying that it didn't help them. Everyone else on all forums either wrote off RSO or tried CBD oil, which is NOT the same thing. This RSO stuff seems worth a shot. Tanedout, tell me more about your RSO trial. I'd love to hear more about what seems like my best chance at recovery.

Keep your head up, guys. When we get through this, we will be that much stronger due to this experience. Stay positive!

Well I'm aware of three guys off acne.org who recovered using RSO. One recovered fully, I'll post his story below, another followed this method (the guy actually moved from the US to Central America for 5 months to grow, make and take RSO, and he recovered almost 100%, and a 3rd guy recovered his sexual sides, but not brain fog, using it.

Recovery story below;

I owe my life to this plant which is why I now dedicate my life to spreading the knowledge of this amazing medicine. I never expected any of this. To take it back to the start I was 16 years old I Was literally the epitome of an athlete and health (sexually included)quite like yourself as I saw you mentioned. The death pill accutane turned me into what I could only expect it would be like at 80+ years old, after 6 months of 40mg per day...if I remember correctly 1 poison pill a day. Still remember near the end of the death treatment I found one of those pills crushed with a sickly orange goo coming out. Later to find out this poison is chemotherapy originally designed for brain cancer, which I now know is a whole other fraud just like most of the 'medical system', but that's another topic. Back to the point. I remember in the summer of 2010 when I was a month or two into the poison I suddenly released my erections were becoming extremely weak and my feelings were slowly dying. I didn't understand what was going on I was only focused on getting rid of the acne. Time went on and I got worse and worse thinking it was only temporary. Never could i have imagined what these criminals had put me on for acne. By the end of the poison I pretty much felt dead. Extreme fatigue, extreme brain fog I could not think normally, could barely make sense out of regular things, at this point I was completely impotent with no more feeling sexually or in my body. Complete loss of sexual function. No erections, no libido, no sexual thoughts or attraction to females at all. Emotionally dead. My joints in my legs ached bad and made cracking sounds when I would move them. My eyes were red and dry and I had horrible night vision I couldn't see outside at night even though I always had been able to in the past. My lips had a big split top and bottom from being so dry and cracked. They would split and bleed daily. I still have the scar lines from it. Basically the poison made me feel like I was no longer human. I don't know if I am forgetting anything but I think that about covers it. It was around 2 years until i really began cannabis treatment. I was feeling worse and worse no improvement at all to the point i was basically bed ridden with no hope. I eventually started off vaping and over the course of a few weeks my brain fog finally was clearing and I was getting some erections and feeling which was very exciting, but it wasnt always too consistent. The reason being i believe is the amount is very little being consumed compared to an oil tolerance. Also i feel that vaping/smoking is very mental so I believe most of the cannabinoids go to the lungs/brain rather than the whole body compared to ingesting oil. But it certainly began to clear up my mind. I began using RSO months later I believe a bit more than 1 1/2 years ago. Within the first few days i knew this was it. I took it very slowly and only increased my dose as I was comfortable but within a few weeks I was beginning to really feel the true healing power. I was feeling alive with energy each morning and I finally began getting more erections. My mind was clearing up even more and feeling and emotion was returning. This is dated around a month or so. I no longer had joint pain and my night vision had returned.I continually increased dosage and I continued to feel even better and better. Every symptom just continued to feel better by the day. Erections and feeling continued to improve as did my energy and mind. Another thing that I think helped a lot is a few times a week i would mix some rso with coconut oil and put it in a condom and wear it. By this time it was around 3 months into treatment. I estimate I consumed around 50 grams of oil or about 12 ounces of bud. At that point I felt completely cured and back to normal. I continued to ingest the oil and continued to feel great. I have used the oil on and off since then as maintenance doses and I still feel great to this day. This oil is truly amazing. Throughout the course I didn't write down dates or measurements so it is mostly estimated. I continually listened to my body And feeling as I went along. That is the most important thing to remember on the oil. Take it slowly and build a tolerance. Once your tolerance is high after a few weeks or months the healing really begins. Start very small and give yourself time to build tolerance. 1/2 rice grain every 8 hours rick Simpson recommends, doubling dosage every 4 days. I started a bit slower but eventually built it up. We all have different tolerances and healing rates so always go at your own comfortable pace. It is important to use indica or indica dominant strains because they provide the best healing and rest. Many people have schedules so if you can only use at night before bed that's still okay. Sativas are not good because they are very mentally energizing and not suitable for healing the way indicas are. Some indica dominant strains have a bit of sativa enough to make a nice balance, but you are looking for potent sedative strains that make you want to sleep. These are the real healers. A few strains I used were afghan kush(indica), northern lights(indica), grand daddy purp(indica), white widow(indica dom), skunk #1 (hybrid). The indicas are definitely best but the hybrids were good to add in the mix for some euphoric good feeling. The best oils are a mix of strains which is what I did. Don't worry about cbd, simply shoot for potent sedative indicas and you will be good. I did not grow the bud I used for these oils, but I have knowledge on growing if you are looking for help. Growing certainly solves many issues in finding this medicine but sadly it is a risk as we know right now. I hope this was detailed enough to be useful and will certainly answer any further questions you may have. I apologize if there isnt a lot of detail but over my course of helping I didn't keep track of much besides how I felt and continued to improve over time. I would love to add more detail but I have been typing for about 2 hours now on my phone because I don't have a computer at the moment. I can't think of much else off the top of my head but Im more than happy to continue to chat and answer questions or help in any way I can. P.s. I tried finding a lawyer for class action lawsuit about 2 years ago by no one would take on the case unless symptoms included IBS or a few others... thats the corrupt system for us. I don't have money for a lawyer so I don't know how realistic suing actually is for me but I am still trying to collect info in the meantime. Very happy to talk to you as well man it's been an unfortunate part of our life but there is certainly a bright future ahead!"
But despite this I tried RSO, and didn't get any benefits from it (other than slight improvement in sexual sides, only when under the influence of it - as I believe it increases dopamine), but nothing lasting. Took it for about 5-6 months. Another 2 guys off the board I was in contact with also tried it. Neither of them got any benefits at all. I can think of at least 2 others who have posted up after trying it, some based in US states where it's legal, and they got nothing from it.

I would say of course it's worth trying. Behind a cycle of fin, this is the other thing people have been able to use to recover, so I would say if you can get hold of it, go for it, and then at least you'll know once you've tried.

CBD oil was a complete waste of time for me, I tried loads of it, stuff from Netherlands, RSHO oil that comes in syringes, oils etc. Just wasted thousands it. At least it doesnt get you high though so it's something that is 'non intrusive' to try at least!

I am one of the ones who tried RSO with no benefit. The dose was titrated up to 1/2 gram per day over the course of 3 months of oil made from (high THC + high CBD) strains and that was all I could tolerate. It wasn't fun and led to arrhythmias that lasted for a couple months after ending the treatment.

High CBD/low THC strains did nothing to help either, but there was no adverse effect from that except maybe some sleepiness.
