Why do we use RSO?
MAC uses RSO in our edible products rather than distillate because of the full spectrum effects. Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) and cannabis distillate are both cannabis oils that can be used in edible and topical infusions, but they differ significantly in terms of their composition, and potency.
RSO is a potent cannabis oil often used for medicinal purposes named after its creator, Rick Simpson. It is made by extracting cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant using a solvent such as alcohol. The resulting oil is high in THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, and also preserves the complex range of other cannabinoids such as CBD, as well as terpenes and flavonoids.
On the other hand, cannabis distillate is a highly purified form of cannabis oil. This process separates and refines the various components of the cannabis plant, resulting in an oil that is almost pure cannabinoids, typically with very little terpenes or other compounds. This resulting oil can lack the depth of a full spectrum oil such as RSO.
