Today’s episode is all about Full Extraction Cannabis Oil, commonly known as FECO. It’s a really concentrated cannabis extract. The trichomes are removed from the flower food grade ethanol before it’s heated, allowing you to create a highly-concentrated, thick cannabis extraction. FECO may be used in a variety of applications, including edibles, topicals, and vaporizing.
The Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO), also known as Full Extract Cannabis Oil, is a highly concentrated whole-plant extract that contains one of the most diverse spectrums of cannabinoids and terpenes available. It’s a potent, thick cannabis oil extracted via ethanol that may be used in a variety of applications, including orally, topically, and vaporizing.
Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) is a term used to refer to products like these. Rick Simpson is a medical cannabis activist from Canada who created a unique technique for extracting cannabinoids from specific cultivars of marijuana. While this acronym is still in use by many, the industry has abandoned it.
For those looking for cannabis treatment, FECO is one of the greatest solutions available. It’s a highly concentrated and broad-spectrum concentrate that has been verified to help people with a variety of chronic issues. In most situations, all you need is a rice grain-sized dose to last throughout most of the day. FECO can be used in food and drink recipes to make your own edibles, vaped, blended into a topical carrier oil, or taken orally to provide fast and powerful effects.
According to recent research, broad-spectrum cannabis goods have the “entourage effect,” which means that the various components in cannabis work together to make each other more effective. Our bodies contain an endocannabinoid system, and when you give it a variety of cannabinoids,
How is FECO Used?
FECO capsules, oral syringes, or the oil may be placed directly on the tongue. This oil differs from wax, hash, and hash oil in that it is not inhaled instead of eaten. When taking a FECO dosage, it’s best to start small. Because the substance is highly concentrated, this happens frequently. A grain of rice is a common unit used to measure FECO dosages.
What are the Benefits of FECO?
The term “FECO” is used to describe several different medical treatments. It’s most common among individuals who experience significant pain. That’s why it’s frequently utilized in cancer or HIV/AIDS therapy.
Many experts are coming to the conclusion that utilizing the entire cannabinoid, as FECO does, may have health advantages and therapeutic value, such as for treating depression.
How to Find High-Quality FECO?
How do you know if you’re buying high-quality and clean goods? Since there are so many items on the market, it’s critical that you be able to tell a high-quality FECO product from a low-quality one. Here are some signs to look for:
- Check if the FECO has organic cannabis.
- Check the concentrations of THC and CBD.
- Check for any added additives (including terpenes) after extraction.
- Check the reputation of the manufacturer.
- Check which strains of cannabis that producers are using.
- Check if industry-standard methods were used for extraction.
- Check which solvents that producers are using.
Use FECO safely
Let’s address the elephant in the room: what exactly is FECO? However, like with any innovative product, talk to your doctor first if you’re not sure. Also, try out small amounts at first to gauge how it works.
Research Studies on FECO
There are very few research studies concerning FECO.
One recent study was conducted by Amit University in India. The research, published in the Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics, appears to suggest that cannabis may be able to alleviate some of the symptoms of cancer. “Medicinal research and meta-data analysis over the last few decades have shown a significant potential for both THC and cannabidiol (CBD) to exert palliative effects,” according to the study. Many types of advanced cancers, including uterine, testicular, and bone cancer, as well as brain tumors and leukemias, can cause chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV), severe and persistent neuropathic pain (SPN), and weight loss. THC and CBD act on patients with cancer to relieve pain, anxiety, and hunger.
A study has been published in the Journal of Pancreatic Cancer. The purpose of this research was to evaluate how CBD and THC affect pancreatic cancer. “CBD and THC seem to have anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects, according to the study,” it adds. Nonetheless, despite these findings
While any study, like this one, should be taken with a grain of salt, such research is useful. Many more research studies will be required to assess the efficacy, safety, and effectiveness of FECO. There’s currently little evidence suggesting that FECO has any advantages or can help treat cancer or other diseases. The fact that there are negative effects linked with FECO is especially troubling.
The Side Effects of FECO
Because there is a lot of THC in FECO, it can cause a variety of psychological symptoms, including but not limited to:
It can also induce physical symptoms in addition to psychological problems:
- Impaired memory
- Slower reaction time
- Slow digestion
- Sleeping problems.
Place the tincture in a mason jar, cover it, and put it in the freezer for 6-24+ hours. Any impurities that may remain in the tincture will be frozen during this process. Remove the tincture from the freezer and filter it through a coffee filter after it has been ‘frozen.’ You’ll end up with a bright, clear tincture at this point.
The watery layer should be completely removed after the alcohol has boiled off, leaving behind a thick concentrated extract. A well-ventilated location and a pan or crock pot are required for this procedure. We utilized the stove top method in this video, ensuring that the windows were open and away from any flames. You may use the crockpot method by plugging it in outside and letting it simmer on medium-high heat with the lid off until desired.
Fill a 10ml syringe or rubber spatula into the pan/crock pot and use it to push out the complete cannabis oil extraction.
Our bodies and full extract cannabis oil
The endocannabinoid system, which is a network of receptors found throughout the body (brain, organs, connective tissue, glands and immune cells) that has been specifically designed to bind with cannabis’ cannabinoids to execute a variety of functions where they are present.
Patients want “homeostasis,” which is a stable internal environment in the face of external challenges, or patients are attempting to consume as much cannabis as often as possible in order to saturate their endocannabinoid system with all of the cannabinoids found in whole-plant cannabis.
When it comes to delivering all of the therapeutic advantages of all cannabinoids and terpenes to the endocannabinoid system, nothing beats FECO oil. This is why so many patients have experienced healing using this oil.
Because FECO is so concentrated, it’s suggested that a new patient start with a dose of oil about half the size of a grain of rice and wait 90 minutes to see how it affects them before determining an accurate dosage – this procedure is known as “titrating” and is required when using cannabis medicines.
High-CBD FECO oil mixtures made by legal medical cannabis dispensaries, such as Harborside Health Center in Oakland, California, are great for people who dislike the negative effects of THC.
The use of FECO oil will significantly boost tolerance in cannabis patients over time, allowing them to take larger doses. Because of the higher cannabinoid dosages, many people are experiencing not only alleviation from their symptoms but also complete remission from cancer, chronic pain, and gastrointestinal illnesses.
The taste is off-putting to some people (mushroom-like grassy), so doses may be given either orally or mixed in food to mask the flavor. Because FECO oil is quite potent, with a THC content of around 47 percent, it’s critical that patients start low and work their way up.
Based on the few research studies, it can’t be said that FECO is safe or effective at this point. Furthermore, owing to the high THC concentration, side effects, and a lack of information surrounding FECO, it should be approached with caution. Individuals considering cannabis for medical purposes should discuss their options with their doctor and should familiarize themselves with the state’s medical marijuana laws.
