Raw Medical Cannabis Extract / Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) / Whole plant medical cannabis oil / Full spectrum raw medical cannabis extract -- are some of the terms which are interchangeable used for Raw Medical Cannabis Extract.
Raw means cannabis is unheated, or “non-activated,” cannabis. This means that it has not been through a process called decarboxylation, that means Medical extract or raw cannabis dried bio mass has not undergone a chemical process as a result of heating over time. The Raw cannabis extract if prepared in a proven scientific way will certainly contain below detailed out Terpenes, flavonoids, cannabinoids. Just because of the presence of all the Phytochemicals known or unknown, proven scientifically or unproven are definitely present in the extract along with Plants natural waxes , Lipids, and chlorophyll the cannabis extract is referred to as Full spectrum extract. We normally correlate the term of Full spectrum to white light wherein all colors possible are present.
Raw cannabis extract contains not only calcium, and iron, but also contains over 100 cannabinoids. When raw cannabis is analyzed for its chemical properties, it is found that raw extract contains CBD & THC in limited quantity, but larger chunk of CBDA and THCA is also present. Sufficient amount of CBG is present too, CBG is the pre stage of CBN. The Vast variety of Chemical compounds makes raw extract favorite of Mr. Rick Simpson himself, Charak Samhvita and Athrav Veda. I would thank and pay respects to Mr. Simpson for revolutionizing and making the world aware about the goodness of Cannabis plants Raw properties.
Detailed and deep explanation exists in “Atharv Veda” (Knowledge of Magical formulas) has charms and magical invocations with folkloristic style. Earliest known reports regarding the sacred status of cannabis in India came from Atharva Veda estimated to have been written sometime around 2000-4000 BC. Atharva Veda (XI.6.15) specifically mentions five great plants of which Soma is the best, including marijuana, barley and darbha (kusha or durva), showing that many plants have soma-like qualities.
Book 11, Hymn 6, Verse 15 of Atharva Veda-Samhita says
पञ्च राज्यानि वीरुधां सोमश्रेष्ठानि ब्रूमः। दर्भो भङ्गो यवः सह ते नो मुञ्चन्त्व् अंहसः॥
It means (“To the five kingdoms of the plants which Soma rules as Lord we speak. (Darbha, hemp, barley, mighty power: may these deliver us from woe.”)
‘भङ्ग’ (bhang) refers to the cannabis plant.
The primary compounds THC and CBD is present but in lower quantity , It includes all counterparts of THC and CBD, tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). But, because these compounds are inactivated or unheated, raw cannabis is not psychoactive. It should be noted that, while the decarboxylation or activation process does require heat to occur, this can also happen as a result of sunlight exposure or even room-temperature storage over time. The amount of THCA or CBDA that is converted through activation depends largely on the type of heat process applied and the duration of time.Whole-plant cannabis oil is not the same as “hemp seed oil.” Hemp seed oil is a cold-pressed oil made from the seeds of the hemp plant. It is rich with essential fatty oils and is used mostly for its nutritional benefits. You can easily buy it in health food stores. It often gets mislabeled as “hemp oil,” but it is not. True whole-plant oil derived from the cannabis plant, and is comprised of many different cannabinoids including THC, CBD, CBN, and more — in addition to terpenes and other compounds.
