The potent extract (also known as FECO, Rick Simpson Oil, or “RSO”) is the most potent medicine available.
When patients use medical cannabis, their ultimate goal is “homeostasis” a stable internal environment despite external influences, or in other words, patients are trying to consume as much cannabis as often as they can so they can saturate their endocannabinoid system with all the cannabinoids found in whole-plant cannabis.
Our bodies and full extract cannabis oil
FECO oil is the most efficient way to deliver all the healing benefits of all cannabinoids and terpenes to the endocannabinoid system, which is why so many patients have found relief using this oil.
Using FECO oil will drastically raise the tolerance of cannabis patients over time, allowing them to consume more of it. Because of the increased cannabinoid dosages, many patients are finding not just relief from their symptoms but full remission from cancers, chronic pain and gastrointestinal disorders.
Human bodies all come equipped with an endocannabinoid system — a network of receptors found throughout the body (brain, organs, connective tissue, glands and immune cells) that have the explicit purpose of binding with the cannabinoids found in whole-plant cannabis to perform a variety of tasks where they are found.
Don’t get overconfident like I did, and give yourself four times the recommended starting dosage–I became one with the couch for almost a whole day!
I usually take a dose of FEO about two hours before going to bed. My favorite part is the anticipation of when you start to feel the oil take effect, then you slowly begin to drift off into a relaxing, peaceful slumber that leaves you with a cozy smile on your face.
You’re probably wondering how FEO is made. The process usually consists of cannabis flowers being grinded down and washed in a solvent such as alcohol. After the alcohol evaporates and the remnants are filtered several times, you’re left with highly concentrated cannabis oil that ranges from 20%-90% THC and about 10%-70% CBD. Cannabidiol, abbreviated as CBD, is a non-intoxicating molecule of the cannabis plant, leaving you medicated without the intoxication.
How Full Extract Oil Is Made
Chronic Creations believes in full spectrum extraction, meaning they use the whole cannabis plant for maximum medicinal benefits. The company also uses top-quality organic cane alcohol that is tripled-mineral filtered to remove any impurities left in the oil, making it tastier than most brands.
Simpson then formulated his very own cannabis concentrate, known as RSO. Now that we are out of cannabis prohibition, modern laboratories have refined the process, and the concentrate is now referred to as Full Extract Oil (FEO).
There are many companies that produce Full Extract Oil. One brand I particularly enjoy is the Cookies N’ Cream with BAOx CBD full extract oil from Chronic Creations, based out of Sandy, OR.
This oil is very potent, it is sold by the gram which is then compressed into a syringe. The test results for this particular batch, resulted in 524.4 mg of THC and 204.0 mg of CBD. The company recommends starting with a dose that measures to be about half a grain of rice, which gives you a serving of 26.22 mg of THC and 10.2 mg of CBD; adjust accordingly if your tolerance is higher.
Yes. A synthetic version of THC called Nabilone has been used since the 1980s to treat nausea after chemotherapy and to help people put on weight. A drug called Sativex is also approved for the treatment of pain and spasms associated with multiple sclerosis. It contains an equal mix of THC and cannabidiol, but would not be suitable for the treatment of children with epilepsy such as Billy. “If you used that to treat epilepsy, the kids would be stoned off their heads,” says Nutt.
What is the evidence that cannabis oils can help treat epilepsy?
The first part of the review will look at the evidence for the therapeutic value of cannabis-based products. It can recommend any promising ones for the second part of the review. This will be carried out by the government’s Advisory Council for the Misuse of Drugs, which can recommend a change to the legal medical status of cannabis and cannabinoids.
In the USA for example, cannabidiol is classed as a schedule 1 controlled substance, and can only be sold in states where cannabis use is legal.
Are there any cannabis-based epilepsy drugs on the market?
It depends on the THC content. Some types of Cannabis sativa plant, known as hemp, contain very little THC. The extracts from these plants contain mainly cannabidiol, so will not get anyone stoned.
Not yet. In April the US Food and Drug Administration recommended the approval of a drug called Epidiolex for Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. Its active ingredient is cannabidiol, and final approval is due at the end of this month.
