The story of the Hodgkin's Lymphoma (cancer) patient begins in October 2011. This information needs to be shared. This information must be shared.
A while back, I kept hearing about it, read about it, and also about other concentrates.
With my experience in using cannabis, from Colombian Gold, Thai Stick, Strawberry Cough, to Querkle, finger hash, different types of medibles (brownies, butter, cookies, candy). I will say that the medibles never really impressed me, I am sure they work for others, but for me, they did nothing. I also found it hard to believe the testimonies on the Run From the Cure video, that cannabis, when used correctly, can cure illness and disease assist in pain management, getting off of highly addictive pain medication, and so on.
I did not believe that any of the oil extracts could be as potent as people had said, especially the Rick Simpson Oil.
Out of all the information and research, it seems to me that the Rick Simpson Oil was my best option for treating cancer patients. So I decided to give it a try and see for myself. I have many years of experience in growing high quality medical grade marijuana, indoor, 100% organic.
It took some time, but I saved up a large quantity of premium bud and followed the Rick Simpson directions (my buds were much more manicured than the ones in his video).
I used 9 oz of premium bud, bone dry. I soaked the bud material in 99% isopropyl alcohol, a bit longer than recommended though. I did the wash or soak in wide mouth court canning jars so I could see what was going on.
When I got to the point of putting it on the coffee cup warmer it took about 6 to 8 hours before the oil stopped bubbling, telling me that the iso had all been evaporated out. I then sucked the oil up into 2 tsp sized syringes while it was still warm. After it cooled down, I sampled a dose the size of a grain of rice, and I couldn't believe it! It offered much more than any bud I have ever smoked. I was absolutely shocked. After trying it, it made me a believer that the people in the video were speaking the truth of the oil curing them of their pains and illnesses. I never had anything like it before in my life.
My patients couldn't handle taking three doses a day, the size of a grain of rice. It was too strong. When taking three doses, it seems to build up in your system, and you can develop a tolerance. You must take three doses per day in order to build up a tolerance and keep it. For both of my patients, it took them each six weeks before they were capable of increasing the dose size.
One of my patients has Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a cancer that develops in the lymph-nodes, he has been battling this disease for 12 years and had been receiving chemo treatments and was facing radiation treatment, but he chose to try the oil instead of more chemo or radiation. Normally he would have already been taking his annual holiday visit to the hospital for a 6 week term for another bout of chemo, but this time it would have been radiation because he was getting worse and the chemo was hurting his body. He has yet to have been admitted this year. His doctors have even commented that he would be back before Thanksgiving. Well Thanksgiving has come and gone, he is not in the hospital, he is at home with his family and feeling pretty darn good. I think he will even be home for Christmas and be able to ring in the New Year at home. I am not claiming it is going to cure him, but I do believe it is doing him better than what the doctors have offered him during the past 12 years. If anything, this oil has offered this patient much hope. I will be sure to update on his condition in the future.
Another patient I have encountered has severe gout. He took only a few doses of the oil, and the gout literally disappeared from his knuckles. Three months later, without taking any more oil, the gout had not returned to his knuckles and the gout on the rest of his body is still visible, but the swelling was reduced a lot. If he went through the full treatment, I believe the gout would be completely gone.
I would also like to note a warning when taking this concentrated oil. It is very potent! This is something that a user should start off with small doses. Just one dose a little bit bigger than a grain of rice, had me lying down for a couple hours, praying to God to bring me back down. Also, my patients and I, when taking the oil three times a day, have noticed when waking up with the first cup of coffee, before taking the morning dose, feel a little buzzed. I highly recommend to make your own oil. I have tried others and got nothing from it.
Here is the batch of oil made with the 9 oz of product. It produced 8.5 teaspoons of the Simpson oil. If you ask me, Simpson oil is more efficient than smoking bud. It is not for everyone. One small dose of the oil has much longer lasting effects then any other marijuana products I have tried. The effects can last from 6 to 12 hours from one small dose.
Here is a picture of 4 of the 9oz of bud, 4 different strains were used.
This oil in the picture below was made more for using in a vaporizer. It is much more golden, but for ingesting, I think the darker oil has a higher medicinal value. I also believe that the more golden oil is higher in THC. The reason why this batch was more golden is because it was ultra high quality manicured, no leaf material what so ever, and the plants were intentionally nitrogen stressed before harvest, for a lower chlorophyll amount. When vaping the golden Simpson oil, the taste is incredible. The Eclipse Vaporizer shown in the pictures below is Made in California, USA. Price with shipping, under $100. I highly recommend this product for vaporizing oil. I do not recommend it for vaping bud.
After making many batches of the Simpson oil, I would strongly recommend to use 1/4 lb. or more of indoor grown premium bud. Anything less could be wasteful in my opinion.
Waste not want not: (Clean Up)
After filling the syringes, there is still some oil left in the pan, metal cup, and on other tools. I clean them up with some fresh 99% isopropyl alcohol, pour it into a bowl, lay out some wax paper and use the back of a small spoon to coat some rolling papers, place the coated papers onto the wax paper. I usually coat each paper two to three times. Let the papers dry and evaporate the alcohol for a few hours. These make for some nice "gold plated" joints.
** (February 2012) update on Hodgkin's patient. He has recently reported to me that he is still using the Simpson Oil and has defied the doctors by not having to be in the hospital over the holidays, and a very prominent tumor is gone. He will be going in for a CAT scan soon. I can't wait to hear the results.
Something to add: I am no longer making the oil to where it comes out black. Nothing against it except for the higher anxiety and bad taste. I am making it more golden from now on and I am only using the syringes to suck up the oil then transfer the oil from the syringe into small vials, like the ones that come with the eclipse vape. The vial holds about one teaspoon which is about 5 grams of oil, or 5 cc's. It is a lot more convenient for storage and to carry. Just use a toothpick to scrape out a dose.
I would like to take back the original comment from above about the darker oil having more medicinal value and the golden oil being higher in TCH. I am really not sure, and I plan to have some samples of each tested soon.
** (April 2012) update: The cancer patient I spoke of has recently gone through a CAT scan. There are no tumors present!!! There was a tumor on his chest that was about the size of a baseball. It and the other tumors are completely gone! The only thing remaining is some scar tissue. He and I alike praise God for this wonderful medicine. Cannabis, an awesome plant, a gift given to us all from God. We should all thank Rick Simpson and the sacrifices he made to make the people aware of what God's plant can do. The patient has gained back the 40 pounds he lost. He looks healthier and better than I have ever seen. I am 100% confident and a true believer that the Rick Simpson Oil, when made and used correctly, can cure cancer. Now after 12 years of battling this disease, this patient is cancer free. We can only give our glory to God for this.
Red Oil: This needs to be researched and studied; water soluble.
The oil in the glass is frozen. I extracted with similar methods as the Rick Simpson procedure but using water. Again, this was after the initial extraction with alcohol, let the remaining material completely dry, then washed with water, filtered it, and then evaporated the water down to produce what is shown in the pictures below.
Run From the Cure. In this video you can learn how to make your own oil.
Here is another video worth watching in regards to the oil.
