From the comments section at original location: “What Rick doesn’t mention is that this oil needs to be sufficiently cooked for full decarboxylation as the raw oil will be mostly THCA which needs to be converted to THC. The rice cooker process does not decarb the oil properly, the coffee warmer can complete this but takes many hours. Instead of using a coffee warmer you can put oil in the oven for hour at 110c. Make sure you decarb properly as raw or partially cooked oil will not be as effective”

  1. It’s not difficult, there are easier methods, just need to research. Join some groups on facebook you’ll find many different methods.


  2. I use the rice cooker way to rid of most of the alcohol out of it then let the oil sit in the open, inside the cooker, for at least another week or two to rid it of any remaining alcohol at room temperature. When I place the oil into open 1/2 capsules I wait another week or two before placing the other 1/2 capsules to finish the closing of the tablets to be sure of not any alcohol left at all.


  3. I used a mini crockpot called The Little Dipper to evaporate the alcohol off. But, I can’t seem to really smoke it. I loaded it in two different vape pens and it doesn’t work. Tried in a bong,not good.
    Is the only way to use RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) to ingest it? I even tried making Rosin with it, and that didn’t work either. Any ideas?


  4. This is what I’ve heard. If the weed is heated over 190° it kills off the CBD, or rather reduces it and makeS The medicine less effective.

    I’ve been experimenting with recipes I found on the Internet it basically wash the cannabis in alcohol, pour the mixture into a shallow pan, and with no heat whatsoever, the alcohol just evaporates and you’re left with oil that will roll up into a ball that looks a little bit like very green hat.

    So I tried smoking a little bit of this concoction and it got me stoned and that’s because, of course, I had heated the material up. But I don’t like getting stone, so I started taking small doses under my tongue. The results are not yet in. But there seems to be a major, major conflict in information about whether you need to decarb cannabis by putting it in the oven, so on and so forth.

    The fact that we don’t quite know exactly which way to go with this new discovery does not bother me, and here’s why. Ask any psychopharmacologist how Prozac works, and every single one of them will say, “we have no idea”.


      • I moved my blog onto my hosting from WordPress.Com years ago.
        It’s cheaper, has a more impressive SEO, and a better looking URL. For no extra yearly fees, you’re of getting what you get with WordPress.Com by using WordPress.Org.
        I personally use Digital Ocean and Namcheap along with free Cloudflare to get perfect results.

            • One big question though, if you don’t mind? If I loose the URL’s for the posts here that have gone viral, and I have new URLs for all the posts after switching to a new platform, do I loose the high ranking those posts have earned in Google search results? And, will all the links from WordPress be dead (or do they automatically redirect to the new site?


  5. If you choose the ‘sire redirect’ plan for about $20 a year from, they will forward all the requests for your old url’s to the new site. Using the ‘tools’ option from your wp-admin console, you can ‘export’ all the data from this site, and then ‘import’ (if it’s less than 15mb of data, which it should be) with admin console, which, looks pretty much the same.
    I would assume that Google ranking would remain the same as the URLs will not disappear, but rather, forward to the articles places on your new site, which will match.
    I’m not by any means a ‘pro’ or a ‘coder’, but, as far as I know, with just a little tweaking, your new site should run smoothly, and anyone going to the old URLs will wind up on the new site.
    Hope this helps.
    How about you give me some type of contact info so we can speak directly, off-site ?
    If you can’t, you can follow my site to contact me.
    Cheers, and, thanks for all the tremendous articles and info you present on the site. Truly a great resource.
    One thing, by the way. When I share your URLs with associates of mine, the first thing they react with is ‘aarrg a site !!’, as you do not have your own professional-sounding domain.
    This was an error created in the beginning, but, it’s fine, because the same articles will be on your new domain !


    • OK, DJ, I’ll contact you via your site. I’m not ready to make the move just yet… one thing that makes me uneasy is that my real identity will be easily tracked if i host my own site, no?


      • Not at all.
        Namecheap has a free ‘WHOIS guard’ included with your domain.
        It displays a phony name/address/phone to anyone looking it up.
        Pretty darn handy.
        Contact me via the ‘contact’ option of my site, and we’ll talk further.
        Again, thanks for the site, it’s an AWESOME reference site.
        All the best,

              • I noticed your site is unable to embed the Rick Simpson video on Vimeo.
                Very nice of them to provide a link to the video, however, there may be a way to stream this video in this article.
                If you go to the vimeo video, and click ‘share’ then ’embed’ u will see a notice that the owner of the video does not allow blanket embedding to everyone, but, that you can contact him and request that your site be allowed to embed his video.
                I’d suggest you do that, would be great to see it here.
                Otherwise, thanks for this great post.
                Feel free to contact me any time.

                  • Cool, let me know what happens, I’m curious if I can host it on my site also, although, your site is a much more likely candidate.
                    I tried to upload this video to D-tube and it was rejected.
                    I guess their AI scanned the title and saw ‘cannabis’…. refused !
                    Thanks for all that you do.


                    • AI censorship – unbelievable. It is 1984. I have already asked for permission and will let you know ASAP the result. One wonders though, how often a person would check their (perhaps long-forgotten) Vimeo account for messages…
