RSO: Hemp Oil -- The Real Medicine

(EUROPE) - Rick Simpson's name is synonymous with healing hemp oil, best known as RSO. Here he addresses many questions on how to produce and use the healing cannabis product, standing by the oil that has cost him his freedom to return to Canada.

By Rick Simpson

When people are stricken with diseases like cancer, multiple sclerosis, AIDS and many others, they are afraid and do not know what to believe. The best thing anyone in this position can do is to educate themselves about their condition.

Look into the treatments that are available and decide for yourself what treatments would be most beneficial to you. This is the kind of information your doctor should supply you with. But unfortunately, they don’t.

All most doctors will talk about is what treatments the medical system provides. So find out more, educate yourself, your life could depend on knowing.

People like to think that doctors have all the answers. But if that were true, why are so many of us dying needlessly? As insane as it sounds, many of us will have to break the so-called law if we want to survive. Laws are supposed to be put in place to do the greatest good for the greatest number. But when you look at the laws that were put in place against hemp's medicinal use, this is not the case.

These laws were enacted so the public has no choice but to take the medical system´s chemicals and poisons. So if you want to use hemp medicine to treat your condition, be prepared for the system to treat you like a criminal.

Their evil agenda will continue until we stand up for ourselves and tell them we are no longer willing to go along with their insanity.

A great many doctors will tell you that you should not turn your back on the medical system. They do not do this out of concern for their patients´ well-being but out of concern for their profession and paychecks. For quite some time, the medical system has been much more about money than they are about healing.

If this were not the case, why do they provide us with chemicals and poison and call it medicine? Many highly trained medical professionals know exactly what they are giving you?

Their aim is to simply maintain the status quo, that is what is best for them, but not for us.

Did your mother ever tell you that chemicals, poison and radiation are good for you? (Not likely.) So why does the public take such treatments from their doctors, and unthinkingly do as they are told?

When doctors start filling us with all those chemicals and poisons, they have no idea what effect these so-called medications will have on us. We are all different, our tolerance for chemicals, poisons and many other substances vary from person to person.

If you and I had the same cancer and took the same chemotherapy, the first dose may kill me, but if you happen to have a much higher tolerance to poison than myself, you may escape the grim reaper for the time being. Remember, every time you take chemo, you are poisoning every vital organ in your body.

In the end, the vast majority of people are not saved by chemo, they die from its effects.

Chemotherapy and radiation are both carcinogenic treatments. They do not cure cancer, they cause it. You can shrink a tumor with chemo and radiation, but in the end the effects of such treatments usually wind up spreading the cancer.

Even medical journals like The Lancet tell us that chemo is just a faster way to die. But doctors continue to pass out chemo like it was popcorn. It is not just the chemo and radiation that the public should be wary of, but practically everything the medical system provides.

A great number of medications that the medical system gives us are liver toxic. This means that such medications are poison to our livers.

Do you actually think that poisoning your liver is going to heal you? I strongly suggest that before taking any medications or treatments, the public should find out for themselves what such treatments could do to them.

Look up the ingredients of the medications they are planning to put you on and decide for yourself if you really want to have this in your body. Just because doctors wear white coats does not always mean that they know what they are doing or even care. It is your body and your life. Find out for yourself what the truth really is.

"Every time you take chemo, you are poisoning every vital organ in your body."

Empiric medicine – medicine from plants – has been with us throughout history and hemp is the queen of all empiric healers. Never has there been a recorded death due to the use of hemp medicine. It is too bad that what the medical system uses cannot make such claims.

As I said, the safety of hemp medicine as a medication is unparalleled. If you could eat a bucket full of hemp oil, it will not kill you. An amount such as this would make you sleep for a very long time but when its effects wore off, you would be unharmed and likely healed.

Do not try such a thing with pharmaceuticals for you will wind up in a coffin. I do not recommend that anyone overdose on hemp oil or anything else. But at least, if such a thing should happen, hemp oil would do the patient no harm.

If a proper protocol is followed, very few people have trouble taking the oil as a medication. The idea is to get off the chemicals and replace them with the oil. We have found that this oil, if properly produced, can replace practically all pharmaceuticals.

In a great number of cases, the use of hemp oil will not only control the condition, but cure it. The beauty of using hemp oil as medication is that it is harmless. You can use it your whole life with no ill effects.

If this medicine were used properly and not restricted, our life spans could be greatly increased and we all would be much healthier. Coming off some of these chemical drugs, one must exercise caution.

It really would be good to have the advice of your doctor, but he will not like it in most cases. So expect trouble. If necessary, one could seek the advice of a homeo or naturopathic practitioner. I think for a lot of people this would be a good idea.

The oil from many strains of hemp is a wonderful natural pain killer that is not addictive or harmful. The medical system uses many strong addictive opiate based medications as pain killers. I admit that such medications are somewhat effective. But they are addictive and dangerous.

The idea is to get off these medications as quickly as possible and replace them with the oil. We have seen people with bone cancer in agony when morphine could not kill their pain but the hemp oil brought the pain under control quite quickly.

From our experience, we firmly believe that the essential oils from many different strains of hemp are the greatest natural pain killers on earth and they do it all harmlessly.

When you are coming off an opiate, you will go through withdrawal. Using the oil will greatly reduce the withdrawal symptoms and the patients will do much less suffering. It is not just about curing cancer. High grade oil promotes full-body healing.

It works very well as a medication for practically all conditions. Even severe burns can be healed in no time, leaving no scars with the proper use of this oil. High grade hemp oil is a natural anesthetic and a natural antibiotic. What could be better for a severe burn?

From what we have seen with the use of this oil, the word incurable does not mean much. People who have endured radiation and chemotherapy damage or people who have suffered for years with MS and other serious conditions will find in some cases that their condition can take quite some time to heal. It is not instant.

On average, we found that the vast majority of cancers can be cured with a sixty milliliter treatment of high grade oil. Such a treatment usually takes about ninety days to complete on average, but I know of people who took the whole treatment in a month and cured their terminal cancer.

People who have had extensive chemo or radiation must realize that the effects of such treatments linger in their bodies. Not only do such people have to cure their cancer, but they must also heal the damage that chemo and radiation left behind. Such people may have to ingest a great deal more oil, which will lengthen the treatment, to be completely healed.

The same holds true for diseases like MS and AIDS, etc. The more damage from the condition and the chemicals that were used to treat it, the longer it will take to heal the condition. For people who have only suffered from such conditions for a short time, healing will take place much more quickly.

Now we must explain how to acquire what you need to produce the medicine and to use it properly.

It is to use the system´s word “marijuana” that you will need to produce this medication. But I prefer to call it what it really is – hemp. Male plants are not used to produce the medicine, you need the buds from the female plant. Leaves will produce oil, but of a lower quality. The buds are what is needed to produce the best medicine.

The female buds of high grade strains are covered in resin that can appear to be clear, opaque or amber. The resin is the medicine. All you are doing is dissolving it from the plant material with a solvent.

The solvent is then boiled off. But just before the solvent is completely gone, a few drops of water are added. This allows the solvent residue to boil off the oil more easily, leaving the oil much more pure.

I produce the oil from strong Indica strains that make you go lay down after you smoke it. I always look for that heavy sedative effect in the material I produce the oil from. Sleep and rest are an important part of the healing process.

Good heavy Indica strains produce this desirable effect in a patient, but some strains with sativa in their genetics are too energizing to use as a medication.

If you are going to acquire the bud material from a grower, take someone with you to sample the bud by smoking a little, if you do not smoke hemp yourself. Then you can tell if it is the right material. Don’t be afraid to see what different growers may have available. The quality and price may vary a great deal from grower to grower.

It would also be a good idea to tell them that you are getting this material to produce a medical or cancer treatment. Often, when a grower knows that someone´s life hangs in the balance, they will see to it that you get the best hemp that is available. A lot of growers know who has the best hemp around and they can make finding high quality material much easier.

I highly recommend that people grow their own. Get your hands on a good grow book. Jorge Cervantes has a book out on hemp cultivation that really covers this subject, Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower's Bible.

Growing your own hemp will not only save you a lot of money, it also assures you about the quality of the material you intend to make the medicine from. Many growers use poisons and pesticides that I don’t agree with, but if you grow it yourself, you are in control.

High quality hemp seeds are quite easy to purchase in most places. Just go online. There are a large number of seed companies that can supply your needs. Many provide a lot of information about the strain you are thinking of growing and its medicinal aspects.

In general, if you want the best seeds, go to the seeds company that introduced the strain. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of strains available. But don’t be discouraged, there is one out there that is right for you.

Often I tell people that smoke hemp, that if they like smoking it, then they will probably enjoy the effects of ingesting the oil made from it.

There are growers and dealers out there that do supply oil. But you have no assurance of the quality of the oils that they are willing to supply. So I recommend, for the time being, until we change the system, that most people should produce their own oil.

There is no deep dark secret in producing the medicine. Practically anyone can do it, if they follow the instructions.

I was contacted a few months ago by a 82-year-old woman who followed our instructions and produced the oil to treat her cancer by herself. If an 82-year-old woman can do this, I don’t expect most people would have much trouble doing the same.

Watch the documentary "Run from the Cure" at
Go to: for more info.

In the information we provide, safety measures are necessary when you are boiling off the solvent. I stress again that red-hot elements, cigarettes or a spark of any kind is to be avoided. Fumes from boiling solvents are very flammable. Be sure to use a fan to disperse these fumes. If proper procedures are followed, you should encounter little or no problems making the oil.

Something I want to make clear to the people is that this is not hemp seed oil that is available in stores. The oil I am talking about is the essential oil made right from the plant material, not the seeds. Hemp seed oil itself is very beneficial to the body, but cannot compare to the healing abilities of the essential oil produced from the plant itself.

The starting material must be dry as possible and the most potent strain available must be used. Some strains will produce oil that is amber, and often you can see right through it. Others can produce a darker oil. But you cannot judge the potency or effectiveness of this medication based on the color. Generally, high quality oil will have a golden appearance if it is spread on a white piece of paper.

As I stated before, we all have different tolerances for everything and hemp oil is no exception. Some will have a high tolerance, while others will have a low tolerance. And yes, if you take a lot of this medication, you can become quite high. But remember, even if this does occur, it will not hurt you. Just relax and go with it. The effect will soon wear off.

Once people understand the effects this medication has on them, most enjoy taking it. In some situations, the oil can be used as a suppository. But for the most part, the main ways of use are ingestion, vaporizing, or the oil can be used topically full strength. Also, it can be mixed with skin creams or salves, or you can produce a cannabis tincture by mixing the oil with alcohol.

Vaporizing is great for lung conditions but ingesting the oil is what works the most magic.

When hemp is smoked, over ninety percent of the medicinal aspect of the plant material just went up in smoke. To get the full benefits, one must ingest the raw unburned cannabinoids in a pure state, and this is what high quality oil provides.

The rate at which the oil is used or consumed will depend on the condition and how bad the person who has it wants it healed. The more you can take and the faster you can take it, the sooner you will be healed. But I like to see people stay in what I call their comfort zone with this medication.

Rick Simpson

For some with conditions like insomnia, a small dose an hour before bed will give them a good night´s sleep. But for those suffering from something serious like cancer, the idea is for them to ingest the medication as quickly as possible. For people using the oil to treat cancer, I suggest three doses a day – breakfast, mid-afternoon, and about an hour before they go to bed.

I also suggest other natural things they can do to improve their chances of recovery. Change your diet, get away from animal protein. You need more plant protein, raw fruits and vegetables. Producing juices with a juicing machine can be quite beneficial.

The patient should also see a homeo or naturopathic practitioner and look into bringing up their body's pH. Mega doses of vitamin C can also be beneficial to someone with cancer. Such practitioners should be able to advise you.

I recommend that people also eat the seeds from two apples every day. This provides them with a good dose of B17, also known as laetrile. Laetrile or B17 can be an effective cancer fighter in its own right, and I eat apple seeds myself. I have also had a few patients report that they have had good results with a substance called wheat grass.

The things I suggest do nothing to interfere with the oil treatment. In some cases, they can even enhance it.

If a patient is taking morphine or other opiates to control their pain, I suggest they begin with doses about the size of a piece of short-grained dry rice. This amount will equal roughly the same as half a small drop. For people with cancer who are not using pharmaceutical pain medications, their doses can begin at about half this amount. About one quarter of small drop three times a day.

The patient can take their dose by putting it on a small piece of bread and folding the bread over to cover it. Then simply put it in your mouth and take a drink of water and it will go down like a pill. After four days at this dosage, the patient should then increase it to about twice this amount. If the patient continues to slowly increase the amount they are ingesting every four days, within about five weeks, the average person can take about 0.3 ml every dose.

At this point, they can continue at this dose until they are cured. The average person can usually accomplish this quite easily if they try and usually have little trouble staying in their comfort zone. After people have cured themselves, they can then back their dosage down to a maintenance dose. A good maintenance dose would be from 0.5 to 1 ml of oil taken per month.

In beginning the oil treatment, a patient will experience some daytime tiredness associated with this treatment. But usually after about three weeks of increasing their doses, this daytime tiredness just fades away. After getting used to the effects of the oil treatment for cancer, many people can return to work.

Hemp oil does not impair a person´s motor skills but I do warn people not to drive their cars until they are accustomed to this medication´s effects.

Something else a patient should know is that the oil will generally increase heart rate slightly. The oil will also lower blood pressure. So if you are taking blood pressure medications when beginning an oil treatment, keep an eye on your blood pressure.

You will likely find you will no longer need the blood-pressure medication in a short time. The same holds true for diabetics. Usually within six weeks of starting the oil treatment, they no longer need insulin. So keep an eye on your blood sugar.

I don’t care what condition a person suffers from – anything from glaucoma to arthritis. Give the oil a try and see what it can do to help you. Are you not sick of being sick? If this oil was used properly, then every man, woman and child on earth would be taking small doses of it every day. The system has always told us that it wants a preventive medicine. Well, here it is.

Diseases like diabetes, arthritis, cancer and great many other conditions could possibly be prevented entirely. So what are you waiting for? Do what you have to do to protect your loved ones. Provide them with this natural harmless medication that heals.

Every time I talk to people, I tell them “you don’t have to believe a thing I am saying.” Simply prove it yourself. Get an ounce of high-quality indica bud and produce the essential oil from it. This should give you three to four milliliters of high grade oil.

Now find someone with skin cancer or a diabetic ulcer. Apply the oil topically and cover the area with a bandage. Re-apply the oil and a fresh bandage every three days and watch what happens. Now you have seen for yourself what this oil can do, there is your proof.

If anyone from the medical system would publicly like to dispute what I am saying about this medication, then please do. I welcome the challenge.

At the present time, I am kind of trapped in Europe, and there is very little I can do for anyone but advise them. I can only hope the changes that are needed will come about rapidly.

There has been more than enough suffering.

I was unable to post this in the Success Stories for whatever reason, so I posted here. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on October 18, 2013. I was advised by my doctor that my only options were to get a prostatectomy or have radiation seeds implanted in my prostate or receive regular external beam radiation. so I declined because I knew there had to be other options. I scoured the Internet and discovered a wealth of information about CANNABIS OIL curing CANCER. I was able to obtain some medical marijuana oil ( UWAGBALE CANNABIS OIL) from it and consumed the recommended dosage by mid January.On January 26th I had a cancer reassessment which consisted of an MRI with a state of the art Tesla 3 MRI machine. Results - NO SIGN OF CANCER! CANCER FREE! One of the things that helped me while going through all this was reading the testimonials and the success stories of those who have used the oil and were cured And with good food diet. Now that this wonderful oil has cured me, I feel I need to let others know as well.

Diabetes treatment with cannabis oil I have been suffering from type 2 Diabetes since the age of 43. At the age of 47 I started using cannabis oil which I got from National Cancer Institute Team through email and since I have received a miraculous improvement to my life. The constant aches and pains and tiredness are no longer and my A1C are extremely satisfactory to my doctor. I have gone from refusing to be put onto insulin, (because of the side effects involved and having seen countless members of my family go through this) to almost leading a normal life without the need to take medication. I have tested and recorded my blood sugar level with just taking my usual medication, just taking cannabis oil and the two combined. I found Cannabis oil by far is the easiest method and most effective medication. My blood sugars fell dangerously low (3.2mmol). Munchies are a short term side effect which subsides after your body adapts from frequent use. Been able to use cannabis oil in this way was a great thing and no doctor has been able to offer me a better alternative.

thank you for all you sharing about cannabais etc. would like to know, I have not yet made the oil but plan to. I made coconut cannabais butter. It is strong. 3/4tsp is too much for me. felt it for 8 hours. I am now trying to use size of 2 rice grains 2 x day . I just had surgery for endometrial cancer and do not have path results back yet. For using the butter do you think I am about right the smaller amount to try again? I think it is a sativa strain. very stimulating and trouble sleeping when ingested. thanks

My 57yr old brother-in-law was just diagnoised in June of 2013 he has glioblastoma the doctors operated and removed a lemon size tumor on his right templer lobe and has begun radiology and chemo. The Drs. gave him 6mos without treatment and 1 1/2yrs. We began giving him what we believe to be Simpson oil from a dispensery but not sure of the potency if it is going to help him. Is there any dispensery that I can get real Ric Simpson oil?

I have 3 brain tumors.. 2 of them since 2007. I did radiation in 2009. I did an MRI in February of this year and still had the 2 tumors, with no signs of a 3rd one. In July I did another MRI which they found the 3rd one which was growing rapidly. They told me I had to begin radiation and chemo instantly or I have 2 months to live. I'm currently doing both treatments but I wish I didn't. I feel perfectly fine, cause I WILL NOT ALLOW IT TO TAKE OVER. But I've heard so much about hemp oil. How do I meet someone to talk to them about it? I live in Toronto. My e-mail is PLEASE help me. I have 3 kids and 1 on the way. I'm only 36 yrs old.

I really want to trial this product on my partner of whom has been fighting to survive cancer now for two therapy has destroyed his thyroid glands and the chemo has left a trail of destruction behind, how much more can anyone take when there is a product out there made by mother nature that could possibly be the answers to all people who suffer, I am a great believer in using natural products it was actually a substance called wheat grass I used daily on my partner whilst going through chemo and radio therapy though I had heard of the oil before it just was not easy accessible and then there is the problems of finding the right one and not one sprayed with different chemicals and then having to prepare it.why can't health shops like Holland and Barrett or garden centres sell these made up for consumers to buy. At least we all no then that the product is correct and there will be less stress on patients and there family's trying to illegally grow it them selves. I totally agree that hemp oil should be made available for individuals suffering everyday from serious illness,

Don't forget to include the NUMBER ONE killer of people in America - Obesity related diseases. Yes tobacco is bad, so is alcohol, but they are NOTHING compared to how many people that have died from ingesting fat, sugar and salt. Twice as many people die from Obesity related diseases every year than they do tobacco, alcohol, legal drugs, illegal drugs, caffeine and aspirin combined. And 70% of Americans are FAT. And yet it's totally okay to buy as much butter and jelly beans as we want... Anyone else out there see a problem with this, or am I the only one?

anthony canty April 4, 2013 8:39 pm (Pacific time)

what is the side effects of the oil ?

Fred25 February 23, 2013 11:43 am (Pacific time)

Rick calls it "Hemp" oil because Hemp is legal. If he had called it "Cannabis or Marijuana Oil", the RCMP in Nova Scotia would have received orders from Ottawa to shut him down. That's because just like London and Washington, Ottawa takes its instructions from Big Pharma. So he called it "hemp" oil and they left him alone for a few years, until they found out it actually worked.

Wow! I would love to see this taught to Natural Healers! I know so little about this treatment. Does the patient test positive on drug tests? How can this be done, if it can be done, legally? I could go on and on!

The only crime is Labs, Pharmaceuticals, Doctors and Govenment using people for "money" and "KILLING" millions every year. One day; they will have to answer for such acts and their Judgement before the ALMIGHTY will NOT be justified. Just as they blocked; Renne Caisse with ESSIAC a Canadian Nurse; Doctor Hoxley procedures, another Canadian about DCA among many others. All of you may the Justice of GOD prevail and I call all of you "Silent Killers". Wait your time to face the ONE and ONLY.

My 23 year-old wife is dying of Skin Cancer that has moved to her brain. If anyone can help get me into contact with Mr. Simpson to get some oil, I would appreciate it. I know nothing about hemp. Obtaining it, growing it, and extracting the oil looks like such a daunting task and I don't think I'd do it right. Please help! rrrule32 at hotmail dot com

I am from Greece, Thessaloniki and i have my wife with breast cancer (2001) and now with lung metastasis . I know that many people like me bothered you with thousands of emails but believe me we are desperate with chemo and radiations and we want to live !!! My wife is only 49 years old. Please if you can't send me the oil at least tell me where i could find it because i think that myself is difficult first to find the plants ( about 500 gr. of marihuana) and secondly i don't think that i'm capable to make it properly. my email is : athang2 [at] yahoo [dot] com If you know somewhere in Europe (like Holland) please tell me again and i will go there to get it. I read that the dosage is 60 gr. for 90 days. Two times per day, starting with small dosages. Thanks for everything

Global Hemp. Pretty clever way to sneak in an ad in this forum. Shame on you. Rick is doing all this for nothing, but obviously, not you.

Maybe a more exact term for the product would be hemp oil extract, as the process of using the solvent to extract the THC crystals from the leaves and buds is a sort of extraction process. But as in anything if you find yourself confused, do more research. Due diligence rules.

just trying to figure out how to get some hemp oil--for skin issues (past history of skin cancer). Also, how about type 1 diabetes--for a girl who got it at age 20; in good physical condition; apparently after a bout with a virus--she developed antibodies that put her pancreas out of whack? and shortly after going on daily insulin, her menstrual periods stopped--no estrogen apparently now--although docs don't know the connection--clearly happened after the diabetes and commencement of insulin intake.

how to get some? for use with skin issue (past skin cancer history); and for type 1 diabetes for onset in a 20-year healthy and fit female? also, after being diagnosed and then put on daily insulin, thyroid bounced back and forth but finally stablized; then menstrual periods stopped--2 years ago--no estrogen production! not sure of the connection; but no known reason found--though just 24, docs aren't looking for "why" either---just saying take lots of vitamin D and calcium

Dear Sirs : I Think this is wonderful, but its a shame that You have some people putting this good man down because of the way He words things, He's a Fine Man with Life Saving, Loving, Caring Feelings For Cancer Patients. Doctors kill people every day with their profit making chemo and radiation which destroys the persons Body, and poisons them. People are ignorant who accept the Doctors Poisons into their bodies just because Joe Smo Doctors and the Cancer factories want to make millions on their poisons at the death of the patient. I thank this man for having the Love And Guts to Post This Caring Article. He has more common sense in His little finger than any of those cancer patient Killing Doctors For Profit. Thank You Air.

Medical (and recreational) Canna-business will grow and flourish, regardless of all the obstacles thrown it way. From the Holistic point of view Cannabis is markedly pro-evolutionary, as it increases appetite, induces rest, suppresses violent urges and enhances sexual experience. Cannabis is not physically addictive, as it lacks the documented "physical withdrawal" syndrome, necessary for a physical dependence determination. The so-called "gateway drug" theory has already been determined to be invalid, and the recent scientific study declared it "half-baked". Drug Marinol is NOT medical marijuana (and it would seem that any reasonable person would understand this), as the whole plant has over 70 active compounds, therapeutically interacting with one another in many intricate and complex ways. It is very important to stress again and again that Cannabis use, as opposed to alcohol use, suppresses violent urges and behaviors, and that any increased anti-Cannabis repression in this country will be accompanied by increase in drinking, hard drug use, and violence, including among young people. Now, to say that Cannabis plant does not have medicinal properties is the same as to say that the earth is flat, and this would simply not be considered a "rational" statement. Would then the fact that Shafer Commission recommended an immediate decriminalization of marijuana back in 1972, or the fact that Judge Francis Young called marijuana "one of the safest therapeutically-active substances known to man" really surprise anyone? I don't think so. To win this struggle, just like with all Civil Rights struggles, we will need to overcome the "consciousness of fear", and repeat the TRUTH about Cannabis again and again, until the necessary "qualitative shift" occurs in our common consciousness, and we will be amazed that the ridiculous Cannabis prohibition really lasted for as long as it did!

hemp and cannabis/marijuana ARE THE SAME PLANT Industrial hemp comes from generation after generation of weeding out (not allowing the females) The hemp plant is the male, the cannabis marijuana is the female. When the male pollenates the female they produce seeds! Pollenation lowers THC, so after several hundreds years there is an industrial hemp strain with very low THC that in fact produces less seed than varieties with lots of THC. everyone was duped, if you refuse to see that, sorry I can't reach you but that is your problem, the world will move on because this is all true and not make belief. There is much bullshit out there don't believe me, don't believe anyone else who posts, research and verify for yourself! Apply the high THC hemp oil to skin cancers or diabetics, AIDS patients then tell me after watching the amazing results nothing happens. Even smoking it has good effects, all smoke is not bad, don't buy the propaganda. How else can smoking cannabis heal my damaged lungs caused by pollution? I am sick of ppl saying its the pot I smoke, WTF I started smoking regularly at 20 (first tried at 17) because my asthma was getting worse, and the inhaler made things worse for me. **** the misinformation/disinformation agents repeating the same nonsense the white coats claim, the medicine works miracles!

Myles O'Howe February 19, 2011 8:30 am (Pacific time)

There are Cannabinoids in mothers' milk, might as well arrest all mothers who breast feed (bring the law to its logical conclusion) Cancer kills millions, and the treatment is being suppressed, this is Genocide, I dare anyone to research the definition of Genocide and then tell me this corrupt system is not engaged in Genocide. No deaths from cannabis, why the fear? the propaganda, all the ppl who hate pot and doubt the science and reality are co-operating in Genocide! WTF why can't cancer patients have working medicine, thats Genocide knowing in fact there is treatment. I dare anyone to prove me wrong. Patent 6630507 Issued on October 7, 2003. Estimated Expiration Date: February 2, 2021. Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants Hemp Fuel Revolution 2011! It is not just the great medicine this plant gives us, but ethanol that yields 6-10 times more than corn ethanol and is biodegradable, non toxic like todays fuels that cause cancer! How is anyone not outraged?

Seeing is believing January 19, 2011 11:09 am (Pacific time)

Anonymous, and all you other disbelievers; do some research. I personally know a person who was taking the oil and was called back into his doctor's office after a routine checkup. They told him he no longer has diabetes and needed to stop taking the medicine. They said, and I quote, "we have no idea how it happened, but you no longer have diabetes." Mainstream medicine could care less about cures - they are in the business of sickness to make money. If you are not willing to go find people, interview them, hear their stories and see their lab results, then just stay off the threads. Your disbelief simply shows your ignorance and lack of willingness to educate yourself. It's not Rick's job nor anyone else's to prove anything to you. Those of us who are using the oil and having excellent results could care less what you think.

Anonymous January 13, 2011 7:24 am (Pacific time)

All due respect Rick but claiming that your hemp oil will cure Diabetes and Aids??I doubt that. If it was true I believe that main stream medicine would be using it I certain of that.

Colin Cody February 24, 2010 5:34 am (Pacific time)

Of all the cancer cures I have examined, this is definitely one of the very best, particularly if you are willing to grow your own plants or take an extended vacation to another country where one can legally purchase high grade Marijuana Oil of the right kind. Cooking sodium bicarbonate with Maple syrup and eating it also makes good sense chemically and should work well without any legal problems. Mr Simpson is man of rare bravery and determination. I hope he wins his battle for the good of all Canadians and Americans. I only wish we had 10,000 more like him. The crimes our governments perpetrate on us in the bogus name of protecting us is an unspeakable abomination worthy of the harshest punishment.

Nathan Kussman January 27, 2010 10:22 pm (Pacific time)

I've resolved to make simple distinctions of Hemp "bud" oil and Hemp "seed" oil. Spares me all the drama.

Niels Miller January 24, 2010 11:54 pm (Pacific time)

About the last comment: What so confusing about calling Organic Hemp seed oil "Hemp oil"? Global hemp, I think your the only one confused.

Jeff Kaye~ January 25, 2010 3:34 pm (Pacific time)

I can't believe the idiots on here arguing semantics over a proven treatment for serious diseases unrivaled in the entire world's pharmacopia of drugs. Rick can call it hemp oil all day long, and technically he's correct. It's NOT hemp SEED oil, which is just a healthy supplement. Anyone with half a brain, or who takes a few minutes to investigate how this miraculous medicine is made (which he explains quite beautifully and simply) will realize this is indeed empiric medicine with empirical results. These are not merely anecdotes. These are cured patients. Stop quibbling over the name of something so powerful it defies denigration. Global Hemp sells hemp SEED products. They're the ones confused. Bryan likely works for them, or has an otherwise vested interest in other hemp products. We should all just be happy we have this amazing plant with so many uses, and work together on getting it legal for all those uses. But the main thrust always has been and should always be the medicinal benefits to be derived from the flowers of medical grade strains of cannabis/hemp. This lore has been stolen from our collective consciousness by greedy businessmen and crooked politicians. It's time to take back the birthright of every human being with an endocannaninoid system. (That's everyone, look it up) January 22, 2010 8:12 pm (Pacific time)

Hemp oil is an unfortunate choice, but marijuana anything keeps us stuck in that last-century frame. The plant is cannabis sativa, and like danes and dobies are both dogs, agricultural hemp and medicinal cannabis are different varieties of the same cultivar. Food fiber and medicine all from the same outlawed flower. Rick ought to switch to cannabis oil/cannabis tincture. I make and use tincture for headaches and have a service to help patients do the same. What Rick is talking about is real; it is a shame we have to get bogged down by words.

douglas benson January 22, 2010 5:11 pm (Pacific time)

Keep up the fight Rick ,you are not alone. I do have an issue with your claims though .Sounds a lot like the old snake oil routine .I am not saying that cannabis isnt good medicine and much safer for recreational use than alcohol ect. but a cure all ? I grow and use cannabis for back pain [legally ] instead of vicodin ect and it does help much better than 5ml vic every four to six hours but sometimes I still take them cannabis makes the pain bearable most of the time but not all the time . Most people I talk to have the same experience and are able to cut thier morphine methadone ,ect in half .This is a big deal since these drugs are deadly and as you pointed out liver toxic . Dont give up WE are winning finally. Looks like a race to see which state legalizes first .Then comes the state rights fight . Go team !

Cheryl J. Schneider January 22, 2010 2:50 pm (Pacific time)

Rick, It is you have a lot of people who diss you and and you beliefs. Yes, I somewhat confused. I take a way too many chemicals, for unfortunately a way too many proplems that I have. It would be so nice not to have all that crap in my system. By the way, I'm age, 65. Problem - Medicare and Medicare pay for all my meds (practically). There's co-pays, spendowns, $ taken monthly out of my Soc. Sec., etc. So I think you get what I mean. I thoroughly enjoyed your article. Thanks for getting it out to us. Cheryl

Bryan January 22, 2010 10:02 am (Pacific time)

I find it disturbing that he will call his product hemp oil!! Hemp oil is a great nutritional supplement and does not contain THC! It will not get you high! To confuse the masses by calling it hemp oil I think all legitimate hemp food companies should band together and sue his ass off! It's people like Rick Simpson that are slowing down the hemp industry by not letting people know the truth. Hi is not a hemp advocate... He is a marijuana advocate. Get your heads out of your asses and educate yourselves to know the difference before spouting off false information. Hemp and marijuana are NOT the same thing. Very similar but different! LEARN YOUR FACTS!

Allan Erickson January 22, 2010 6:53 am (Pacific time)

Simply put - the banning of cannabis is a crime against humanity. To base laws on lies - a crime against humanity. Making ignorance king? A crime...

mark allen January 21, 2010 4:40 pm (Pacific time)

thanks bonnie for keeping people up dated with rick.
ill keep you posted ....
peace and much love.
has a pal pal for anyone who would like to support this great work.
thank you

Daniel January 21, 2010 4:40 pm (Pacific time)

Rick do you think bubble bag or cold water hash is as good or better than your oil ? I have also read using a mixture of food grade baking soda with organic syrup is also a cure for some kinds of cancer , anyone else have knowledge on this .

Jeff Kaye~ January 21, 2010 2:14 pm (Pacific time)

Hear here: Awesome article, Rick. Thank you so much for all you've done to bring this incredible medicine to the people of Earth. I hope you're able to come home soon and celebrate with all of us the fact that hemp oil is legal (again). And of course, Thanks to Tim and Bonnie King for having the foresight and moral courage to print the truth.

Global Hemp January 21, 2010 1:30 pm (Pacific time)

Its rather unfortunate that Rick Simpson can not call his product "Marijuana Oil" or "Hash Oil" ... instead he prefers to confuse the masses into thinking that purchasing Nutiva Organic Hemp (Seed) Oil from Global Hemp Store for $10 is going to cure their cancer. Call it "Marijuana Oil" and you stop 99% of all confusion. However, Rick Simpson refuses to budge as he feels that his product is "Hemp Oil" and the nutritional product with Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids are "Hemp SEED Oil." Seriously, people are confused over the term and should be as there are two names for hemp: 1. hemp 2. industrial hemp As for medicinal / recreational cannabis, there are hundreds of names such as: 1. marijuana 2. grass 3. pot 4. weed 5. ganja 6. reefer 7. chronic 8. Mary Jane 9. tea 10. bud So, once more -- stop referring to marijuana that has been solvent extracted into a product that is known as Red Oil, Honey Oil, Hash Oil, Marijuana Oil and all of a sudden naming it "Hemp Oil" which is a complete misnomer and confusing term -- when there are better terms to describe marijuana that has been solvent extracted into a concentrated liquid form -- yes, "Marijuana Oil" or "Hash Oil" just NOT "Hemp Oil!"
