FECO = Full Extract Cannabis Oil otherwise know as RSO or Rick Simpson oil.
Cannabis works like other medicines, uniquely for each person, meaning for some or most it will work and for some it won’t. The only way to know for sure is to try it and experiment with the dosage for the desired effect.

Thanks to the highly successful documentary “Run From The Cure“
the Rick Simpson oil became a household name almost overnight. While studies have long reported anti-tumour effects of cannabis, this was not mainstream knowledge until the documentary about Rick’s cancer cure let the cat out of the bag.
Ever since, a large number of people suffering from various diseases have been experimenting with the Simpson oil, and indeed many have anecdotally reported staggering results of remission. However, due to the illegal status of the oil, research on humans is very difficult to conduct, as governments are reluctant to hand out the necessary licenses and permits.
In addition to the Rick Simpson oil, the cannabinoid CBD has also received special attention. The cannabinoid shows a wide range of beneficial qualities, all while being absolutely non-psychoactive – and legal. Most famously, the anti-seizure properties of CBD cured the young girl Charlotte of her debilitating epileptic seizures, a case that was widely reported in mainstream media and was also featured in Sanjay Gupta’s CNN documentary “Weed 1 & 2 & 3“.

For good reasons, CBD and Rick Simpson oil are receiving attention. There is no shortage of studies and anecdotal reports that show the beneficial aspects of cannabis. However, there is some confusion surrounding CBD oil, and how it is related to Rick Simpson oil. While they are similar in many aspects, they are still very different products.
Both oils are made from the same plant: cannabis, respectively hemp. From a botanical perspective, cannabis and hemp belong to the same plant genus – cannabis. However, due to geographical factors and through breeding, the plant has developed into different species and strains, which produce a different harvest: Hemp produces few and small flowers with low cannabinoid content, but in exchange, hemp produces high amounts of fibre, which are used in many industrial applications. Cannabis, on the other hand, refers to the recreational and medical plant which produces big and potent cannabinoid-laden flowers, but only small amounts of fibre. Again, they are botanically from the same plant family – just bred into different strains that yield another product. Further, the Rick Simpson oil is almost always made particularly from Cannabis indica strains, which have been shown to be more effective for physical ailments. Sativa strains, on the other hand, are often made into Rick Simpson oil that is to be used for mental illnesses.
It is thus becoming apparent how the CBD oil and the Rick Simpson oil are very different products. Since they are coming from different strains (hemp and cannabis), they naturally contain different amounts of cannabinoids. The Rick Simpson oil is a full spectrum plant extract of potent cannabis. It, therefore, contains very high levels of THC and other cannabinoids; easily in the range of 50-60% THC and 10-15% CBD, depending on the strain that was used. In addition to high levels of THC and CBD, other cannabinoids such as CBN and CBG are also present in concentrated amounts.
The CBD oil, on the other hand, contains high levels of CBD, but only very, very small trace amounts of other cannabinoids such as THC or CBN. Our CBD oil contains 4% CBD, and only 0.173% THC. As research has shown, THC shows promising potential for many conditions, which is why this psychoactive cannabinoid is an important part of any cannabis-based approach.
Consuming simply a larger amount of the CBD oil is both expensive and a digestive challenge, since it is olive oil based. But even then it would not match the wide range of cannabinoids that are present in a full spectrum extract such as the Rick Simpson oil.
It has to be made absolutely clear that under no circumstances is the CBD oil any replacement for the Rick Simpson oil. It is a different product that cannot possibly replace the full spectrum Rick Simpson oil.
What is Cannabis Oil?
Cannabis oil is a thick, sticky, resinous substance made up of a high concentration of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, extracted from the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica).
Cannabis oil is a cannabis-based product obtained by separating the resins from cannabis flowers using a solvent extraction process. Cannabis oil can also be known as marijuana oil, weed oil, pot oil, Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), Full extract cannabis oil (FECO), honey oil, hash oil, dabs, shatter, or wax.
Cannabis oil is the most potent of three main cannabis products, which are the actual cannabis flower (marijuana), resin (hashish), and oil (cannabis oil). Cannabis oil is the most concentrated form of the three main cannabis products. That is what makes cannabis oil the most potent.
High-quality cannabis oil can be used in many ways medicinally and can be used for many different conditions. Cannabis Oil can be orally ingested, vaporized into the lungs, used as a suppository or applied topically. You can also mix your oil with creams or salves for beauty treatments and other external uses.
Some of the conditions cannabis oil has been used for include:
crohn’s disease gout pain relief
Glaucoma Opioid Dependence
treating alcohol abuse epilepsy psoriasis
anorexia asthma adrenal disease inflammatory bowel disease
fibromyalgia rheumatoid arthritis pain migraines
Revitalise all the internal organs of the human body
Cannabis oil also possesses antioxidant properties. This property makes cannabis oil useful in the treatment and prevention of a wide variety of diseases, such as ischemic, age-related inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Cannabis oil may also have a use as neuroprotectants for such things as limiting neurological damage following a stroke or head trauma. It can also be used in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.
