We put our oldest son, in Grade school, on Medical Cannabis AMA

Sorry guys I’m a little all over the place, quick cap, been lurking for about 7yrs, take around 1500 milligrams of RSO daily and have a lot of the same things I see him going through, luckily I was forced to be more street smart and powered through to be a man (mostly!)

Our son has always been different, from birth. My wife was a teacher for 10yrs (dont hold it against her) so she noticed things and got him in Early Steps, speech therapy and whatever else she could get him in, helped but never quite enough. Mean time we are trying whatever we can but he doesnt like regular toys, no playing cars not even make them fly, no action figures, blocks, legos, Fuckin nothing. I’m thinking how did I fuck up, he is my son and I cant even play a simple game of cars. So years of trying to figure it out, of course now he is crawling out of his skin, cannot enjoy anything in life, we saw it most during the pandemic and knew we HAD to do something. So gutted, we agreed to pharmaceuticals, seriously killed me, but was reacting pretty good at first. Started with ADHD meds, eased into them, yeah ok seems to be a positive change, LOWEST doses as possible. Well his moods are kind of all over now, hitting puberty young as I did, so we’re hesitant. Well you guessed it we needed to give him something for anxiety. First one made him go cry by himself during recess for about 2 weeks until a teacher saw and told us. Next one tarted off fantastic! Amazing, running through 300pg books in a day, truly breathtaking! For about 3 weeks, then he’s falling back again, emotional all over the place.
One day a friend is over they have electric scooters and we got him an electric 4 wheeler hoping to get him out more, it worked! Unfortunately he came in a little hot one day and smashed the back of his friends scooter. (We have a rental around the corner I’m working on, and wife was inside tending to the smaller one) His friend rides up to me on a different one than his own, and his look says it all! I said what happened, he explained the accident and I asked if anyone was hurt and I could tell he didnt know how to answer, so I fucking book it home, 1min away, come up and my son is hysterical but calming a little, forehead RED and SWOLLEN, shaking. Finally his friend said well he hit it, broke the fender but then started punching himself in the head as hard as he could and when that hurt too much he started slamming it into anything he could find, his friend tried consoling but my son just said he should just die, commit suicide, better off if he was dead, and I just fucking crumbled truly. I couldn’ t hug him hard enough, tell him how beautiful he is inside and out, and this world would 1000% be a worse place off for he not it, I’m fucking sobbing now FUCK.
Dr says to up his meds for now because shortly after that he stopped eating for a week, makes him deathly ill, vomiting, headache, leaves room for tub then back to room. Fuck this I know what works for me and now he’s on it……

Total Fucking Difference, we could not be any happier with his path going forward, for this part (another thread tbd)

Got big into MMA, watching, about 12 years ago, came across the app one dat and got all my MMA info from home page, probably was at least a year or 2 of having it and by happenstance found the fucking OG, god damn gold fellas, been lurking for years and especially with ALL this BULLSHIT going down, I said no more, I Will Contribute to one of the best places I’ve ever found, true gem and thank you


Lol @ on cannabis! What’s next, is he going to be doing the beer, too?


We’ve found RSO and RSO tinctures. Game changer for all of us. He also has an eating disorder so we’re hoping the cannabis can help ramp up the appetite, that said its hard to give him anything, Anything. The kid has never eaten candy, ice cream, no cake (even birthdays).
Shorter list is The things he eats:
Pizza-cheese only
Organic Yogurt
Plain Lays chips

Been struggling with this a bit because obviously there is a high, but as I thought about it he was out there on the other meds, couldn’t make eye contact. With that, his first one, during a panic attack, within 10 mins was smiling, said he has a smiley feeling inside. Sat and played board games, great GREAT conversation, the opposite of what the night would’ve been


wow. i read your posts. You’ve got a lot on your plate. thanks for sharing and i truly hope this is something that will improve his quality of life for you and your family.
He’s lucky to have parents so devoted.


Haha try my best to get my point across. He is Ingesting Medical Cannabis in oil form


Truly appreciate it, I have a many posts coming, he is in Public School, nuff said

I have to get on with my day, will be a few hours before I’m able to respond again

Had a break to expand. 22% is very low especially if it was in a full bottle. If you ingest it, 9 times out of 10 it will hit you way harder because its processed through the liver. One of my containers holds around 900 milligrams at 75-90% potency. You are supposed to start with a rice grain and work you way up. Well I’ve worked my way to a full vile a day, roughly 1500 milligrams a day, with some vaping/smoking. I am not on any other meds, got off a couple meds myself


Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO, is a cannabis concentrate used for many different medical benefits, including relieving cancer symptoms. It has a thick, syrupy consistency and can be applied as a topical or ingested in food or drinks.


I can’t think of any circumstance for a grade schooler that pot could make better. And I’ve smoked weed for almost 30 years, so I’m not anti-pot. Maybe just give the kid some whiskey…

Curious what your Dr. thinks?

What is RSO?

In 2003, Rick Simpson created a cannabis oil after three suspicious bumps on his arm turned out to be basal cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer. Simpson had used cannabis to treat medical issues in the past, so he made a cannabis oil to treat his skin cancer topically, applying it to a bandage and covering the cancerous spots.

Within days, the cancerous growths disappeared. Although his physician refused to acknowledge cannabis as a treatment alternative, Simpson became a true believer in the medicinal powers of cannabis and spread the word of his cannabis oil, later called RSO after him.

Benefits of RSO

It’s important to note that there are currently no scientific studies that prove the effectiveness of RSO. However, it is mainly used to help treat skin cancer, and many people report that it helps relieve symptoms of other conditions.

Compared to other forms of cannabis, RSO is great because it’s easy to make, it’s discrete and odorless, and can be taken orally on its own, or mixed with any food.

How to use RSO

For medical patients, it is always recommended to consult your physician before starting any new treatment regimen. However, some physicians may be averse to cannabis as a course of treatment. If you decide to use RSO, proceed with caution and at your own discretion.

Below is a recommended RSO regimen. When look for symptom relief for a condition or for medical benefits, for one patient, the goal is to gradually consume 60 grams of Rick Simpson Oil over the course of a 90-day period.

Week 1: Start with three doses every day

Each dose should be about the size of half a grain of rice and should be administered once every eight hours (morning, noon, and night); the first dose will be about ¼ drop of RSO.

Weeks 2 through 5: Double your dose every four days

The average person will take between three and five weeks to reach the full dosage of one gram of RSO per day.

Weeks 5 through 12: Take one gram of RSO daily until you’ve consumed the full 60 grams

Eventually, the patient will be taking about 8-9 rice-sized drops of RSO every eight hours.

Side effects

Mainly sleepiness, which is a natural part of the healing process. Increasing the dose gradually will help minimize the psychoactive effects and keep your tolerance to a functional level. Daytime sleepiness should fade within three to four weeks.

The taste of the RSO may be slightly bitter or unpleasant, so patients may prefer to ingest the oil by swallowing it directly or mixing it with food, such as bananas, to help mask the taste.

Continued regimen

After a 12-week regimen of RSO, you may want to continue the treatment but it should be at a significantly reduced rate. About one to two grams of RSO per month is enough for a regular maintenance dose.

Rick Simpson Oil should not be considered a cure-all for medical conditions, but many patients have experienced significant relief from their medical symptoms and conditions with the use of RSO.

Can you smoke or dab RSO?

As RSO is an oil, it can be smoked or dabbed, however, it depends on what solvent was used to make it—if a highly flammable solvent was used, do not attempt to smoke or dab RSO. Always check with your budtender on how the product was created and whether or not it is safe to dab or smoke.

Cooking with RSO

You can cook with RSO as well, just as you can with cannabis. Consider the dish you’ll be making and keep in mind the texture and stickiness of RSO.

As far as baking, it will be easier to mix it in with something that has more liquid ingredients, like a cake or brownies, as opposed to cookies.

RSO is great for drizzling over any type of food, but the taste can be a little off-putting for some. You may want to mix it with a sauce or something else to mask the flavor.

RSO to me, is comparable to eating cannabis and I love it.
