Rick Simpson – (Still) Running From The Cure

By Joe Klare

Cancer is a devastating disease that affects tens of millions of people in the United States alone. It consumes lives and destroys families. It causes many to seek alternative treatments, and to try things they may not have considered under less dire circumstances.

Many of these alternative treatment seekers have gone down a road that has led them to a man named Rick Simpson. Formerly of Nova Scotia in Canada, Rick now lives in an undisclosed location in Europe due to legal entanglements with the Canadian government.

Many of you may have heard of Rick Simpson; his documentary, Run From The Cure, has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on the internet. Dozens attest to the healing power of the cannabis oil he taught them how to make. And untold numbers around the globe consider him a visionary and cannabis freedom fighter of the highest caliber.

The 420 Times was fortunate enough to get into contact with Mr. Simpson, and our conversation was as interesting as it was informative. He was very forthcoming, up to and including sending us the latest instructions on making hemp oil, which are printed at the end of this article.

A “late bloomer” in terms of cannabis use, Rick preferred alcohol to weed. “My parents never really said much about cannabis and since I didn’t use the substance at the time no one tried to preach to me. When I was young a great number of my friends were smoking cannabis, but me in all my wisdom stuck to alcohol as my drug of choice. From all the propaganda we had been fed by our trusted government, I thought the use of cannabis must be harmful in some way. But watching the effect it had on all my friends that were smoking it seemed to go against all I had been told. After smoking cannabis in the evening they all awoke the next morning feeling fine and unharmed, while myself after drinking awoke with a nasty hangover. When I was young I tried to smoke it with friends a couple of times, but I didn’t like its effects at the time so I stuck with booze. They say hindsight is 20/20 and I wish I had known then what I do today, for if I had I would have smoked cannabis and drank a whole lot less alcohol.”

As happens with many, Rick didn’t discover the medical benefits of cannabis until after he had been using it recreationally. “I was a late starter when it comes to the use of cannabis and I was in my mid thirties before I started to use it recreationally. Like most other people I had no idea of this plants potential as a medicine and I remained that way until about a year after I had suffered the head injury that ended my working career.”

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police vs. Rick Simpson

Rick is currently in Europe because of problems with the Canadian government; as he told The 420 Times: “I never had a drug charge in my life until the RCMP staged the raid on my property in 2005. Of course in reality this raid was staged simply to prevent me from supplying the medicine and spreading the truth about the medicinal value of the hemp plant. The legal system tried to paint me as some type of drug dealer, but how many drug dealers do you know that openly grew cannabis and produced the essential oil from the plant and then gave this oil away free of charge to those in need? On my fifty eighth birthday November 30th 2007 I was put in jail for four days supposedly for trafficking an illegal substance. I had supplied 5 grams of oil again free of charge to a woman in her early twenties who was suffering from a back condition that had put her off work. Her mother who it seems considered herself to be an upstanding citizen, reported it to the local police and I was arrested. When the case was heard in court in early 2008 I was sentenced to time served. In other words the legal system considered the four days I had already served as just punishment for the terrible crime I had committed by helping this woman and giving her the medicine free.”

“I have to admit that it took me quite some time to realize the healing potential of this amazing oil,” Rick said when we discussed the cannabis oil he has been teaching people how to make for a decade. “When the medical system told me in 2001 that there was nothing more they could do for me, I had no option other than to turn to the oil for relief. The chemical medications that they had been giving me for years had badly damaged my thinking ability to the point that I couldn’t seem to remember anything. But once I started ingesting the oil on a regular basis it began to work its magic and in a short time it lifted me out of the chemically induced haze that I had been in. As this was taking place I became quite alarmed because I started loosing a lot of weight, of course I didn’t know at the time that the oil was simply detoxifying my body of excess fat and toxins that had built up over the years. It wasn’t until I had cured my own skin cancer, that I really became aware of the healing potential of this substance. Shortly after I had cured the last of the skin cancers with the oil, it suddenly dawned on me what this amazing substance was all about. Not only had it cured my cancer and brought my thinking ability back to normal. It had also cured the arthritis in my knees that I had been suffering from for years. Another truly amazing thing it had done was completely heal a severe third degree burn that occurred when I first tried to produce the oil. Of course at the time my thinking was badly impaired by all the chemical medications the doctors had given me, so I blame these so called medications for the injury that I suffered. When I say that I had suffered a severe burn I do mean severe. Three quarters of my right hand had literally melted and was hanging in big gobs from what was left of my hand. Eleven days after this injury my hand was completely healed leaving no scars, it was almost as if it had never happened. But at the time my thinking was so impaired by all the chemicals I had taken, I simply wrote it off by telling myself that I must be a good healer. Finally after I had cured my cancers I put all the oil had done for me into perspective and thought what have I stumbled upon. It then became more than obvious to me what this wonderful substance could do and from that point on I went on a crusade to bring this knowledge foreword. In the beginning I never really thought that the miraculous healing ability of this oil would be rejected. But I was soon to find out differently and in a few short months I came to realize the sad state of the world in which we live.”

Youtube is full of video testimonials of people who say they have used Rick’s oil and that it has done amazing things. Obviously The 420 Times cannot claim knowledge of the oil’s ability to cure cancer; we can only say we have viewed the testimonials, and there are many who have been pushed to what many would consider an extreme treatment to help them with a horrific and soul-crushing disease, and they say it works. In the final analysis, there are many with cancer that come to the “what do I have to lose?” moment. It is something you should discuss with your family, friends, and doctor.

Rick Simpson is yet another example of the hideousness of The War on Drugs; it only serves to hurt good people. It saps the will of those who want to help others. After all, what is wrong with someone having the option of cannabis to treat their cancer?

The 420 Times cannot verify that Rick Simpson’s cannabis oil can cure cancer. We also concur with Mr. Simpson’s disclaimer that we bear no responsibility for the misuse of this information. Discuss all treatments with your doctor or other medical professional before use of any medicine or alternative.

He is now taking the oil and the tumor is shrinking, I have complete faith that this will cure his cancer, plus it is supposed to help glaucoma, diabetes, alzheimer’s and who knows what else it will cure. It is working!!!!

  7. Shan

    If you are in CA… Check weedmaps.com for lists of dispensaries in your area. They can help you find a doctor for perscriptions and also provide a ton of info on different strains. Many also carry hemp oil. I used it on a cancer growth on my cheek that had spread over 5 years. Within 1 month of applying it each night it has dissapeared. Completely. God bless and highest hopes to all of you on your paths to health and longevity.

    Hello, I had to post because this oil has caused miracles for me and it should be known. I have severe crohn’s disease and for the five days that I have used this oil, I have had almost no symptoms. It must be seen to be believed. Doctors should know about this but I live in a state that would put me in jail for taking my medicine.

    • mhikl

      Want proof that this oil heals the body from cancer? Why not apply the same standard to the regime the medical profession has been touting for over a century: Cut, Burn and Poison (CBP). The chemicals and radiation used has not worked and the cancer rate has risen from 1 in 20 in 1900 to 1 in 2.4 men and 1 in 2.7 women today. With the radiation from Japan spread around the world it will be humungous over the next decade compared to rates even now. My friend’s dad just died Canada Thanksgiving Day, almost to the day he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Under the CBP regime the cancer completed its assault on his pancreas and then did its deed on his liver. So much for modern chemical allopathic medicine.

      Those are the statistics, the progress norm of the disease and the reality of what you have in store for those who get cancer and choose allopathy as their form of treatment. Choosing just to eat healthy will at least allow you to live more time pain-free from CBP during the year one has left to live, and without an impaired immune system from the medical blind, many even live long than the average.

      And you want more than antidotal evidence, living people who have records of cancer and who now live cancer free is not enough against the proven state of the status quo? Someone is living with his head in a hole. The government and medical system has done an excellent job on you.

    If I was to publish before and after pictures claiming to have regrown an amputated limb people would laugh their head off. Yet make claims which add to the “case for legislation” and suddenly it is treated as a proven randomised controlled trial. Even “cannabisscientific.com” has a total of four cases of “apparent cure” of possible tumours on unverifiable patients taken on camera phones and it tries to be taken seriously.

    • Unitedstatesisacorporation

      The medical establishment will not do any trials. They don’t want to look into it, totally unscientific.

  15. Rusty

    I don’t know about the effect on cancer because I do not have it. I CAN say that this oil has removed many of the debilitating symptoms of Crohn’s Disease for myself. My doctor and people close to me have seen the apparent miracle of immediate relief from constant, uncontrollable diarrhea, abdominal pain, and malnutrition that nearly killed me.

    • India Hawkins

      Think about it….if the “system” uses this oil to cure as much as possible many types of companies lose an abnormal amount of money because of insurance companies not paying for tests, exams and meds and treatments. Why on earth can a person go to school for 1 year as lets say a cosmetologist and make 6 figures (if she’s good and stays busy) but yet to be a doctor making six figures you have to have ATLEAST 8 years of education to maybe start. All that education but they can’t even do better with DEcreasing the rates of people getting cancer let alone treating it. Step back from the stuff that’s fed to you and learn to find your own info. No one on this earth can prove not one case of weed causing death. as for the classes of “drugs” the government has the nerve to put weed in a class higher than cocain!!! a plant worse than cocain?! they depend on us to not use common sense. People say the “organic” fad is a hoax, so why is it that when i eat a commercial banana from walmart then turn around and eat one from a health food store i can taste a difference?! I cooked some chicken from walmart a few weeks ago and the smell of it raised my blood pressure! bought some chicken from my fave health food store and had no problems! the point im making is to stop letting people make decisions for you. it doesn’t matter how long they went to school or how much experience they have, find out for yourself. people say bottled water vs tap water doesn’t matter…put a cup of bottled water and a cup of tap water in front of me while i’m blind folded, i guarantee that i can drink some of both and tell the difference! you basically gotta eat for your health and find out what’s right. you have to try stuff to know what’s better. get info and stop being in denial about what is out there. So, eat clean non GM (genetically motified) food, purified water and lay off of doc’s…trust and believe me and my 9 year old haven’t been sick in so long that i can’t remember the last time we were sick. I do recommend you doing a body detox and again, eating whole foods. stay away from boxed and canned foods often. think about it…if a veggie picked from a farm can be put on let’s say a counter top and left there then mold in about a week but then be placed in a can with fluids (of God knows what is in the fluid aside from what the manufacturer’s claim) and then the veggie can be kept in that can for THREE FREEKIN years but we expect to have no digestion problems of any kind! what the hell is in our food these days to make a plant stay good for 3 years?! that’s crazy! it basically has something in it (a preservative and MANY of them a “cancer-causers” lol) and this preservative tells whatever it’s in to no “break-down” or metabolize..well my body is made to do such things so now it’s trying to go but the preservative tells it not to. It’s like being in a car with your food on the gad and the breaks…not good for what’s “under the hood!” Thanks for letting me blab on and on and on lol i just couldn’t answer your concern without adding in other things that can be to your benefit as well as to anyone elses. Oh and most commercial stores like walmart sell tomatoes that are picked while green then shipped and before sale they use NITROGETN gas to make them turn red. sick and sad as crap! ttyl

    Im just gonna throw this out here guys, but try looking up US Patent 6630507, “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants”. It seems that there is a huge amount of research suggesting that cannabinoids have a myriad of health benefits. Ironically, this patent is owned by none other than “The United States of America as Represented by The Department Of Health and Human Services”.

  29. Elizabeth Casson

    Wow am so grateful for the good Rick Simpson ( ricksimpsoncannabisoil_phoenix@outlook.com ) did for me and my family for curing my husband’s prostate cancer of 3 years.

    My name is Elizabeth Casson from north Carolina USA, June 2 2010 my husband was diagnosed of prostate cancer and he had done all sorts of treatments (chemo, radio and herbal) and his doctor still gave no hope for his condition, after his last chemo treatment on 09/28/2013 the doctor told him that he had 8 months to live. When I heard this I was disappointed, frustrated and full of pain that the one I love so much would leave me and my children all alone in this world.

    One faithful day my uncle called and told me about Rick Simpson cannabis oil and how it cured his 48 years old neighbor so I became very interested in this cure, my uncle and I decided to do some research about the Rick Simpson cannabis oil and I found it very interesting, so I decided to purchase the oil. I called my uncle and asked him for Rick’s direct contact, so I could discuss with him.

    I contacted Rick Simpson( ricksimpsoncannabisoil_phoenix@outlook.com ) he told me what to do to purchase the oil and how to use the oil I followed his instructions dutifully and now I can proudly say that my husband is cancer free, all thanks to Rick Simpson for restoring my lost hope.
