Legal Alternatives for Rick Simpson Hemp Oil


You may have heard of Rick Simpson hemp oil. An essential oil derived from cannabis plants, it is rich in the cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and, according to Rick Simpson and many others, has cured their cancer.

Does it really work? Anecdotal evidence clearly points in that direction. Unfortunately, because of the stigma surrounding cannabis and marijuana, few clinical studies have been attempted. This is rapidly changing, but for now, there is no concrete answer.

The Story of Rick Simpson Hemp Oil

Rick Simpson is a Canadian engineer who suffered a traumatic injury that gave him constant ringing in the ears. The condition severely affected his temper, his ability to concentrate, and his life. None of the medications doctors prescribed worked. An episode of “The Nature of Things” that talked about the medical potential of cannabis prompted Rick Simpson to extract oil from the plant to use to treat his ailment. Though the ringing was still there, the oil got it down to a manageable level. He was able to sleep again, his pain was under control, and so was his blood pressure. Rick Simpson got his life back.

A few years later, Rick discovered three spots on his skin that were diagnosed as skin cancer. One spot was surgically removed, and the other two were to be removed some time later. As Rick Simpson recuperated, he recalled a 1974 news report that mentioned the effects of THC on cancer cells in mice. He tried the oil on his two remaining spots, and four days later they were gone. When the cancer that had been removed reappeared a few weeks later, he treated it with the oil, and again his skin was healed.

Rick Simpson wanted the whole world to know about his discovery and started handing out his oil at no cost to cancer victims. Many were cured. Unfortunately, most professionals in the medical field reacted negatively to Rick Simpson’s story. He was finally able to present his story to a wider audience when filmmaker Christian Laurette made a documentary “Run From the Cure” about Rick Simpson’s life discovery. The documentary prompted a study by Spanish researchers on human cancer patients that analyzed the effects of THC on cancer cells. The study found that THC had attacked the cancer cells while leaving healthy tissue surrounding it intact.

However, Rick Simpson hemp oil is still not legal to use in most places, not just because it is derived from cannabis, but because it contains THC, the psychoactive compound in the plant. Another legal alternative is cannabidiol.

Cannabidiol and Cancer

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the other major cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and is currently being used to treat children with intractable epilepsy.

CBD also suffers from low levels of clinical research, but just like research surrounding THC, the number of studies is increasing, and initial findings are promising. We now know that CBD can slow the progress of breast cancer and reduce its aggressiveness. In fact, it may actually be more effective than THC. Like its psychoactive cousin, CBD was found to leave healthy breast tissue intact. Other studies have found that CBD is effective against prostate cancer and lung cancer.

Legal Sources of Cannabidiol

Not all forms of cannabidiol are legal in all states. CBD extracted from medical marijuana is only legal in states where medical marijuana itself is legal. However, It can be extracted from industrial hemp, resulting in oil that contains virtually no THC. This “hemp oil” is approved for use as a food additive by the FDA in the United States and can legally be obtained and used countrywide.

    In 2011, when I was 46 years old, my doctor noticed that my PSA (prostate-specific antigen) score, which can sometimes be an indicator of prostate cancer, was rising a little faster than normal. He referred me to a urologist, who also checked my PSA. Six weeks later, he checked it again, and it was continuing to increase steadily. A biopsy showed two of 12 samples positive for cancer.
    The urologist I saw was a surgeon, and surgery was his first suggestion upon diagnosing me with stage II prostate cancer. The other option he mentioned was a permanent implant of radiation seeds. Neither option appealed to me. He noted that the cancer was slow growing, so there was no hurry for me to decide right away. So I decided to do my research and i found out about how Rick Simpson hemp oil has help many people.i contacted this email and made my order: [email protected]….. The oil was sent to me and after using it for the complete treatment plan of 3 months, i went back to check my PSA and found out it was gone.

    In 2007, I had a mammogram and an MRI that showed a growth on my right breast.
    I underwent surgery, which revealed the growth was benign. However, because of
    that incident, my doctor recommended having an MRI or mammogram every six
    months as a precautionary measure. In October 2011, I had an MRI and received
    a phone call from the surgeon who did the procedure in 2007.
    The surgeon informed me I had cancer in the other breast. She told me I could
    have a lumpectomy, mastectomy or a double mastectomy, and said I should call
    her back when I had decided. I was glad someone had spotted the problem, but I
    was disturbed by the lack of sympathy or anything beyond the clinical and
    abrupt talk during that phone call.
    I had an online chat with Rick Simpson representative and was told to make my
    own, i couldn’t get the cannabis bud because i don’t want to get into trouble.
    i had to contact this Email: [email protected] because i was told
    about their 100% cannabis oil.Once i started using the medication it helped me
    to live my normal and active life, my family and faith gave me the strength to
    keep going, today i am feeling wonderful.
