Hi guys,a friend who is not well is using Roy Simpson Oil,it was bought from Spain. My friend is having good results from using the oil but it is very expensive understandably so as it seems to take a good quantity of weed to make a decent amount of oil.

From my understanding Medical Cannabis usually has a low THC content,with higher CBD and CBC content so the patient doesn't get stoned but does get the medical benefits of the CBD an CBC. I looked up which strains were best for RSO,they were ones like,Motorbreath 23% THC,2% CBC and Platinum OG,20% THC,1% CBC. I got them 2 strains from a High Times recommended list. That's fairly high THC levels.

Has anyone growen plants to make RSO that has turned out a succesful oil,which strains are best,how did you find making the RSO,how much oil did you get from what quantity of oil? Did the oil produced has many medical benefits.

Any info would be a great help. Look after yourselves.

I live in the same area as Rick Simpson, I've followed his RSO with interest.

As I remember Rick does an alcohol extraction then reduces the solution until all that is left is the oil.

This Magical Butter Machine video shows you how to do the same thing, then uses the RSO like goo to make gummies.

From what I can tell any canna-oil taken as an edible will have the same effect as RSO.

I make oil regularly, i dont worry about cbd personally. i like the THC. I use a still to extract the alcohol back out and am left with the oil.
normally with average material (whole plant dried and crushed) it takes ablout 10 lbs to a make a lbs of oil. ive had many batches tested in the past. and the oil comes out around 60 to 70 % THC oil (depended on quality of material. it is very green and mean and does a good job.

Opps sorry,Rick Simpson Oil. Those Magic Butter Machine looks like a good processor but not cheap,£150 here in the UK.Thanks for the info.

I'm an RSO maker myself. You ever use acetone?

ethanol is best for rso


everclear works great of you can't find 99 % ethanol (google)
Non drinker, no alcohol for me. Isn't that for a tincture anyway? RSO requires heat from a rice cooker (I use a hot plate). Isn't Everclear evaporated off?
Here's a link to the man himself. He mentions acetone and benzene in the video. He also says his process achieves complete decarboloxization.

yes evaporate it down to nothing but oil, then reconstitute with a lower % alcohol for consumption or then add it too coconut oil or edibles/topicals

reducing it down to oil then adding to butter or coconut oil is the easiest way to consume

I can't do tinctures; no alcohol for me. I'll stick with acetone; I think it's safer that iso anyway. Here's some interesting facts from Wicki:

Isopropyl alcohol can be oxidized to acetone, which is the corresponding ketone
Isopropyl alcohol was oxidized to acetone for the preparation of cordite, a smokeless, low explosive propellant.
Isopropyl is primarily produced by combining water and propene in a hydration reaction or by hydrogenating acetone.
Toxicology[edit]
Isopropyl alcohol and its metabolite, acetone, act as central nervous system (CNS) depressants.[31] Poisoning can occur from ingestion, inhalation, or skin absorption. Symptoms of isopropyl alcohol poisoning include flushing, headache, dizziness, CNS depression, nausea, vomiting, anesthesia, hypothermia, low blood pressure, shock, respiratory depression, and coma.[31] Overdoses may cause a fruity odor on the breath as a result of its metabolism to acetone.[32] Isopropyl alcohol does not cause an anion gap acidosis but it produces an osmolal gap between the calculated and measured osmolalities of serum, as do the other alcohols.[31]
Isopropyl alcohol is oxidized to form acetone by alcohol dehydrogenase in the liver,[31] and has a biological half-life in humans between 2.5 and 8.0 hours.[31] Unlike methanol or ethylene glycol poisoning, the metabolites of isopropyl alcohol are considerably less toxic, and treatment is largely supportive. Furthermore, there is no indication for the use of fomepizole, an alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor, unless co-ingestion with methanol or ethylene glycol is suspected.[33]
In forensic pathology, people who have died as a result of diabetic ketoacidosis usually have blood concentrations of isopropyl alcohol of tens of mg/dL, while those by fatal isopropyl alcohol ingestion usually have blood concentrations of hundreds of mg/dL.[19]


Acetone, or propanone, is an organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CO.[15] It is the simplest and smallest ketone
Acetone is produced and disposed of in the human body through normal metabolic processes. It is normally present in blood and urine. People with diabetic ketoacidosis produce it in larger amounts. Reproductive toxicity tests show that it has low potential to cause reproductive problems. Ketogenic diets that increase ketone bodies (acetone, β-hydroxybutyric acid and acetoacetic acid) in the blood are used to counter epileptic attacks in infants and children who suffer from refractory epilepsy
Toxicity[edit]
Acetone has been studied extensively and is believed to exhibit only slight toxicity in normal use. There is no strong evidence of chronic health effects if basic precautions are followed.[60] It is generally recognized to have low acute and chronic toxicity if ingested and/or inhaled.[61] Acetone is not currently regarded as a carcinogen, a mutagenic chemical nor a concern for chronic neurotoxicity effects.[59]
Acetone can be found as an ingredient in a variety of consumer products ranging from cosmetics to processed and unprocessed foods. Acetone has been rated as a generally recognized as safe (GRAS) substance when present in beverages, baked foods, desserts, and preserves at concentrations ranging from 5 to 8 mg/L.[61]
Acetone is however an irritant, causing mild skin irritation and moderate to severe eye irritation. At high vapor concentrations, it may depress the central nervous system like many other solvents.[62] Acute toxicity for mice by ingestion (LD50) is 3 g/kg, and by inhalation (LC50) is 44 g/m3 over 4 hours.[63]

It's a lot of info I know; BUT I'm sticking with acetone.

you can extract into coconut oil , so i don't get the reasoning to use acetone its merely a solvent, you can use ethanol and dissolve thc the same way, as long as you purge out the alcohol content your fine

but that is QWET not RSO

I suppose it's semantics, rso is more sludge to me and QWET is dabs

iso is different i don't suggest using it for anything except QWISO

Well ethyl alcohol isn't RSO; it's a tincture.
I don't mess with alcohol that's why I make RSO.
