What Are Phoenix Tears?
Phoenix Tears (aka RSO Oil/Rick Simpson Oil) are cannabis oils with incredible medicinal properties; regular, minuscule doses of this concentrate have been shown to treat a wide range of conditions and symptoms.
While cookies and candies can be a good treatment choice, Phoenix Tears concentrates are even better!
This type of concentrate became popular after a Canadian man named Rick Simpson shared his incredible story of cancer recovery in the early 2000s. After lesions on his skin were diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer, Simpson applied cannabis oil – which he had previously consumed to treat other symptoms – to the lesions. Just days after application, he discovered the oil had healed the lesions, eradicating the cancer.
Simpson began extracting cannabis oil, which he used to treat his own symptoms and to help others who had difficulty receiving clearance to use medical marijuana for their conditions.
People struggling with chronic or acute pain caused by any number of ailments have found great relief with Phoenix Tears, and that’s only the tip of iceberg.
This healing cannabis oil can help people with cancer, epilepsy, MS, migraines, arthritis, and Crohn’s disease. The product can also be used to treat high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression. Patients with substance dependence have found Phoenix Tears ease symptoms of addiction, and those with insomnia use it to help them fall and remain asleep at night.
Using Phoenix Tears
As we can learn from Rick Simpson’s story, Phoenix Tears can be taken sublingually – orally, placed under the tongue – or topically. Only very small doses, the size of half a grain of rice, are needed.
Sublingually ingested Phoenix Tears quickly begin to positively affect the body. The thin tissues of the throat and tongue are very porous, and as such the concentrate is swiftly absorbed into the blood stream and delivered to locations in the body and brain where its potent, highly concentrated cannabinoids are needed.
1. Using Phoenix Tears topically
The first and simplest method of using Smokey’s Phoenix Tears is applying the product topically to a localized area needing relief. Rick Simpson rubbed the oil directly onto his cancer growths, and in under a week his growths went away. Patients of his experienced similar effects when using the oil to treat their various ailments, with some feeling effects after just 1 hour. Topical application is great for anywhere use as it does not require the use of any glassware or devices.
2. Ingesting it orally or sublingually (under the tongue)
Smokey’s second recommended use for Phoenix Tears is oral ingestion, and this is quickly becoming a favourite method of use by cannabis users. Some people dose themselves sublingually and can feel effects in as little as 5 minutes lasting up to 4 hours.
You can also bake the oil into various foods and reap the benefits of a delicious, medicated meal.
As with any edible, the effects can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in, and can last as long as 8 hours depending on the potency and the person
Phoenix Tears are used to:
– Reduce the growth of cancer cells
– Relieve anxiety
– Reduce/relieve pain
– Induce sleep
– Increase appetite
– Nourish the skin
– Improve heart health with its powerful antioxidants
If you are experiencing symptoms that you just can’t seem to shake, then Smokey’s Phoenix Tears might be your ticket to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
Rick Simpson’s Dosage Guide
The goal of the Rick Simpson method is to gradually increase the amount of oil consumed each day, over 90 days.
The First Week
Rick Simpson recommends beginning with three very small doses each day. These doses should be the size of half a grain of rice (1/4 a drop of RSO), taken about every eight hours. One in the morning, one around noon, and one at night.
After the first week, double the dose every four days. Most people will take three to five weeks to reach the maximum dosages of one gram of RSO per day.
Weeks 5 to 12
Keep taking one gram a day of RSO until the full 60 grams are consumed. For most people, that’s about 8 or 9 rice-sized doses of RSO every eight hours.
Even after you finish a 12-week RSO regimen, you may continue to take the extract. You’ll want to reduce your overall dosage, though. Dial your dose back to a gram or two per month, split up into equal daily doses. For many users, this “maintenance dose” will be enough to carry on RSO’s possible benefits.
The recommended method of daily consumption of large amounts of Rick Simpson oil has the potential to bring about some strong psychoactive side effects. But when it’s used topically on the skin, the THC doesn’t enter the bloodstream, and no psychoactive effects will be felt. You will likely feel the effects of THC with oral consumption, but it’s often the most effective method. The more frequently you use it, the higher your tolerance will become. As a result, you’ll likely feel less of THC’s psychoactive properties.
While RSO is in no way dangerous, a 90-day regimen may present some minor side effects. The main side effect is sleepiness. This actually may improve a patient’s healing, since rest is one of the most important aspects of recovery.
