Rick Simpson Explains his Hemp Oil Treatment

Not:  Rick uses the word "hemp" for cannabis or marijuana.  He is referring to marijuana.

Rick Simpson:
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 buy 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 the grower or dealer that you are purchasing this material to produce a medical or cancer treatment. Often, when a grower or dealer 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 growbook. 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 to purchase material that they like the effect of smoking, and produce the medicine from it. 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. Simply watch the documentary Run from the Cure at http://www.phoenixtears.ca for the information you require. 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. 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 homeopathic or naturopathic practitioner and look into bringing up their bodies´ 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.
