FECO is the newest & most exciting kid on the block when it comes to oral cannabis medication. It is a full spectrum, full plant extract. If you’ve ever been in to an oriental herbalist store and seen those organisms such as ginseng or herbs soaked in alcohol, it’s sort of similar to that in some aspects of medicinal compound extraction.
It is the offspring of Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) where it packs a punch with the best medicinal value pound for pound through its full spectrum & full entourage effect characteristics that make it the most effective oil in the market right now.
Variables that affect the quality includes the cultures of the flower & plants extracted which may change the consistency, smell, potency, flavour and colour of the oil.
FECO is one of the most potent compounds in the marketplace and is used to treat mild to serious conditions such as anxiety and late stage cancer. It excels at the more serious end of the spectrum diseases according to the vast numbers of anecdotal evidence online (relevant read).
Even though both products look identical they differ on one crucial aspect – that is – the alcohol used to extract the properties of the plant. RSO oil uses naptha, a type of paint thinner meanwhile FECO uses food grade alcohol.
Using ethanol or other food grade grain made alcohol composing of staples such as rice, corn, rye, sugar cane, rye, tubers, beets, wheat and even fruits.
It could be argued that RSO has a higher likelihood of containing solvents in comparison to FECO thereby making FECO a much cleaner & thereby superior alternative.
The ethyl is used to wash the flowers, leaves and possibly roots of the plant of its properties. With FECO the whole plant is extracted hence the term FULL EXTRACT in the acronym FECO.
The wash is then separated from the physical plant to harvest the oil via means of heat to evaporate the liquor to a residual concentrate honey-like product.
The solvent free residual contains all the best bits of the plant. The compounds, molecules, terpenes and flavonoids are all harvested to create a medicinally beneficial pure product.
FECO is ingested in the same manner as RSO, via a drop under the tongue, or otherwise can be diluted in similar fatty products such as grades of butter and oils.
FECO is value for money in terms of medicinal properties and potency. But also please note the quality of the concentrate or any edible product ultimately resides in the quality of the genetics, the environment & variables that it is grown in, and the procedure & equipment used in extracting the compounds.
Disclaimer: It appears from my research, the view that cannabis is anti-cancer is still inconclusive, though some scientific studies are promising.
