What is Cannabis?
Cannabis is a flowering herb from Asia. But it can be grown anywhere under the right conditions. There are several species of cannabis. Those that contain high levels of the psychoactive chemical THC are commonly known as “marijuana” and used in medicinal marijuana. Those with low levels of THC are harvested commercially worldwide as “hemp” for a variety of products, including rope, paper, and clothing.
There are more than 475 chemical compounds in marijuana, including over 80 medicinal cannabinoids. The two most well-known cannabinoids are THC and CBD.
THC is the psychoactive chemical in marijuana. It’s the one that gives marijuana its mind-altering reputation. However, it also offers numerous medicinal benefits. THC blocks pain signals from the brain, making it a highly effective pain reliever, especially for nerve-related pain.
The best way to describe CBD is to say it’s the opposite of THC. And it is. That’s because CBD is an anti-psychoactive chemical. It counteracts the mind-altering properties of THC and provides balance. This is one of the reasons why the different forms of medicinal marijuana are so effective.
As if that wasn’t enough, CBD is also a highly beneficial chemical. It reduces nausea and suppresses epileptic seizures. Arthritis patients gain measurable relief from its anti-inflammatory properties. CBD slows tumor and cancer cell growth in cancer patients, and it has proven to be effective in treatments for anxiety and depression.

RSO -Rick Simpson Oil
RSO is named after its creator, Rick Simpson, who became well-known for professing his passion for this type of product and its medical efficacy. Our whole plant RSO is produced utilizing a vacuum distillation process, which distills out the solvent and reserves terpenes that would otherwise be lost to open air distillation.
RSO is a great option for patients who don’t want to vaporize or are uncomfortable swallowing capsules. Used orally, RSO can be absorbed through the mouth sublingually, or swallowed and ingested.
Infused capsules affect patients via ingestion. Capsules are swallowed and absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract for slow onset and long-lasting effects.
Capsules are precision dosed with a super-critically extracted marijuana concentrate which has been winterized and infused with coconut butter prior to filling. They are available in multiple formulations, giving patients the ability to select the option that is best for them.
Transdermal patches share many of the same benefits of their topical cousin, lotion. Patches are used on the skin to deliver long-lasting THC benefits to a localized area.
