Rick Simpson Oil Dosage and Administration

Rick Simpson’s Protocol

The way to get the best results that you can from RSO, cannabis oil, is to follow Rick Simpson’s Protocol. Your goal is to ingest 60 grams/60 mL of oil in 90 days. You will need to start slow, and build up your tolerance!

There are two ways for someone to complete the Rick Simpson’s Protocol.

  1. You can ingest the Cannabis Oil or take it as a suppository. I know a suppository doesn’t sound like much fun but it is really the way to go because you won’t get a high and your body will absorb 50%-70% of the oil compared to taking it orally.
  2. When you ingest the oil orally, you are only absorbing about 10%-20% of the oil. If you decide that you are not interested in the suppository form and would rather take it orally, it is going to take you three weeks to a month and a half to build up a tolerance to be able to take a full gram a day.

Oral Dosage

The best way to ingest this is to put it inside an empty Gelatin Capsule. You will start with a drop the size of a pin head. Take the first capsule a couple hours before you go to bed. You need to build your tolerance up to take a full gram a day. Everyone builds up a tolerance at a different speed so here are some guidelines. Start by taking that pinhead sized drop the next morning. Wait 4 hours for the dose to be fully active in your system. Take the same size dosage again after 4 hours. Continue to take another dose the same size every 4 hours for the first four days

You are going to have to make a judgement call, on how this affected you, and if you are able to tolerate more. If you start to feel too high STOP! Don’t take the next dose, let your body get use to it, go lay down and sleep it off. On the fourth day double the size of the dose. Continue to double the dose every 4 days till you have reached 1 gram per day. Split it up as many times as you need to throughout the day. Once you have built up a tolerance it’s easier to split it up into a tenth of a gram five times during the day and take a half gram before you go to bed because you won’t feel the high while you sleep. Just a suggestion. As you take it you will find what works best for you.


There are two great reasons why you should take this as a suppository compared to ingesting it. First, you DON’T get high. So, for those who need to go to work and still be able to function normally, this is the option for you. You also absorb over three times as much RSO this way compared to ingesting it. Each suppository is made up of 50% Coconut oil and 50% RSO. There is a half a gram of coconut oil and a half a gram of RSO in each Syringe. You will take one suppository in the morning and one at night (since your goal, is one gram of RSO per day). First, take the syringe and put it in a cup of hot water for a minute to let the oil liquefy.

Take it out and wipe it off with some rubbing alcohol and put some lubricant on the tip. Put the syringe a half inch (1/2) into the rectum, just past the sphincter muscle, then push the plunger. Go lay down for fifteen minutes to let it absorb into your blood stream. BE CAREFUL to only put it in an half inch (1/2). In the colon, their is a blood vessels located an inch and a half up (1 1/2) that goes up to the liver, meaning that you do not want the oil to get in the blood vessel, or the liver will absorb it, and you can get really high. This is why we stress the importance of only inserting the suppositories 1/2 inch. It is very simple if you follow the protocol and it’s really the best way to go when treating cancer or anything that requires a gram a day, without getting high.
