RSO refers to a form of oil that contains high levels of cannabinoids such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). It was developed by Rick Simpson, who claims that this oil saved his life when he successfully treated his skin cancer with it.

Typically, RSO is produced through the extraction of cannabinoids from cannabis using solvents like alcohol or ethanol. The resulting oil has a thick consistency and a dark color often described as “earthy” or “resembling tar.”

Is Smoking RSO an Option?

Although some individuals do opt to smoke RSO, similar to cannabis flower or concentrates, it is not the common method of consumption. Due to its nature, smoking RSO can be harsh on the lungs, and it may also prove challenging to achieve a smooth burn.

If you decide to try smoking RSO, you might want to consider spreading a layer of it on your smoking material, like joint paper or a bowl. This can help make the experience smoother. Just remember to start with smaller amounts and increase gradually if necessary.

Dabbing refers to vaporizing cannabis concentrates by applying them onto surfaces such as quartz bangers or titanium nails. It provides different effects compared to other methods of consumption.

When it comes to dabbing RSO, there are some things to keep in mind. The consistency of RSO may not be ideal for dabbing because it tends to be too sticky or thick. However, there are formulated RSO concentrates for dabbing that have a more compatible consistency.

If you’re interested in dabbing RSO, look for cannabis products labeled as “dab RSO” or “RSO concentrate.” These concentrates are usually derived from the extraction process and have undergone additional steps to achieve a consistency that works well for dabbing.

While smoking and dabbing are ways to consume RSO, there are other methods that users may prefer:

Consuming RSO

One common approach is to consume RSO either by placing it under the tongue or mixing it into food or drinks.

When RSO is ingested orally, it is released slowly, and the effects are gradually felt because it must pass through the digestive system before being absorbed. This method is favored by individuals seeking lasting effects or those who require a specific dosing.

Applying RSO to the Skin

Additionally, some people apply RSO topically on the skin. As an oil, it can be mixed with carrier oils and incorporated into topical products like creams and lotions. This method primarily targets issues such as pain or inflammation.

Determining the dosage of any cannabis product influences your experience. Since RSO typically contains higher levels of THC, new users should start with a smaller dose and gradually increase as necessary, taking into account their tolerance level and desired effects.

It’s crucial to follow product instructions and consult with healthcare professionals if you have any health conditions or concerns.


RSO presents a unique means of consuming cannabinoids like THC and CBD. While some individuals opt for smoking or dabbing this oil, other consumption methods may offer experiences without harm to the lungs associated with inhalation of smoke. Whether you choose to smoke, dab, take orally, or apply topically, it’s important to know the proper dosage and seek expert guidance.

Keep in mind that cannabis laws differ depending on where you are, so always make sure to follow regulations. Most importantly, consult healthcare professionals to make well-informed choices about your health. By exploring new ways of using RSO, you can find what suits you best and responsibly experience its benefits.
