Who Is Rick Simpson and What Is Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)

Who Is Rick Simpson and What Is Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)?

After seeing a documentary highlighting the positive benefits of using cannabis, Simpson
inquired about medical marijuana but his doctor refused to consider it as a course of treatment.
He ended up sourcing cannabis of his own accord and saw a significant improvement in
his tinnitus and other symptoms.
In 2003, three suspicious bumps appeared on Simpson’s arm. The doctor agreed that the
bumps appeared to be cancerous and took a sample for a biopsy. Sure enough, the bumps
turned out to be basal cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer.
Simpson had successfully treated his symptoms with cannabis in the past, and he had heard about a study from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute in which THC was found to kill cancer cells in mice.
He made the decision to treat his skin cancer topically, applying 
concentrated cannabis oil to a bandage and leaving the cancerous spots covered for several days.

After four days, he removed the bandages and the cancerous growths had disappeared.
Although his physician refused to acknowledge cannabis as a treatment alternative, Simpson was now a true believer in the medicinal powers of cannabis.
From then on out, he began cultivating his own cannabis and harvesting the plants to create his own specialized form of cannabis concentrate, now known as Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO.

It became his mission and goal to distribute cannabis oil to those who needed it, free of charge. He helped treat more than 5,000 patients with RSO, but his journey was not without its setbacks and struggles.
Simpson’s own doctor refused to acknowledge the benefits, and he faced arrest and
persecution in his native Canada.
His home was raided on multiple occasions and he had over 2,600 plants cut down and confiscated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, but Simpson persevered and continued to distribute cannabis oil.
To this day, he continues to spread the word of his findings.

How to Make DIY Rick Simpson Oil at Home

Making your own RSO at home is not difficult, and the process isn’t all that different from making cannabutter or other kinds of infused cannabis oil. Rick Simpson recommends
indica cannabis strains for best results, although patients may prefer to use the cannabis strains that work best for their medical condition.
Note: This recipe will produce the full 60 grams of oil for a 90-day treatment regimen.
If you’re looking for a smaller treatment course, you can easily divide the recipe into smaller amounts. For example, one ounce of cannabis will produce 3-4 grams of RSO.

  • 1 pound of dried cannabis material (indica strain)
  • 2 gallons of solvent – 99% isopropyl alcohol (can also use butane, ethanol, or other solvent)
  • 5-gallon bucket
  • A deep bowl
  • Wooden spoon for stirring
  • Cheesecloth
  • Rice cooker
  1. Place dry cannabis material into the 5-gallon bucket and pour in the solvent until the
    plant matter is covered.
  2. Stir and crush the plant material with your wooden spoon while adding the solvent to
    your mixture. Continue stirring the mixture for about three minutes while the THC
    dissolves into the solvent. This will dissolve about 80% of the THC into the solvent.
  3. Drain the solvent from the plant material into your bowl using the cheesecloth.
    Place the plant material back in the bucket and add more solvent. Continue stirring for
    another three minutes.
  4. Drain the solvent from your plant material into your bowl using the cheesecloth and
    discard the remaining plant material.
  5. Transfer your solvent to your rice cooker until it is about ¾ full and turn on your rice

Note: While you don’t necessarily need a rice cooker, if you’ve never made RSO before,
rice cookers are exceptionally useful in this instance for maintaining a slow, steady temperature.
If your mixture heats above 300 degrees Fahrenheit (148 degrees Celsius), the 
cannabinoids will cook off and the RSO will be unusable. It is not recommended to use a Crockpot or slow cooker, as this may overheat your mixture.
  1. The rice cooker should maintain a steady temperature between 210 and 230 degrees
    Fahrenheit (100 to 110 degrees Celsius), which is the correct heat setting for
    decarboxylation to occur.
  2. As the rice cooker heats up, the solvent will slowly evaporate. Continue to add your
    mixture to the rice cooker gradually.
Note: Make sure your rice cooker is in an open, well-ventilated area, and avoid all flames,
stovetops, sparks, and cigarettes, as the solvent is highly combustible.
  1. Once the solvent has evaporated, siphon the oil into your syringe for easy dosing.
    The RSO will be thick, so if you have trouble dispensing it, run the syringe under hot
    water and the RSO mixture should dispense with ease.

How to Use RSO

For medical patients, it is always recommended to consult your physician before starting
any new treatment regimen. However, as there are many physicians who refuse to discuss
cannabis as a course of treatment, proceed with the Rick Simpson method at your own
For one patient, the goal is to gradually consume 60 grams of Rick Simpson Oil over the
course of a 90-day period.

Week 1: Start with three doses every day
  • Each dose should be about the size of half a grain of rice and should be administered
    once every eight hours (in the morning, noon, and night). The first dose will be about
    ¼ of a drop of RSO.
Weeks 2 through 5: Double your dose every four days
  • The average person will take between three and five weeks to reach the full dosage of
    one gram of RSO per day.
Weeks 5 through 12: Take one gram of RSO daily until you’ve consumed the full 60 grams.
  • Eventually, the patient will be taking about 8-9 rice-sized drops of RSO every eight hours.
The taste of the RSO may be slightly bitter or unpleasant, so patients may prefer to ingest
the oil by swallowing it directly or mixing it with other foods, such as bananas, to help mask the taste.
Note: Do not try to dab RSO, as it is made with high-proof solvent and could be
adverse to one’s health.

Side effects mostly include sleepiness, which is a natural part of the healing process.
Increasing the dose gradually will help minimize the psychoactive effects and keep your
tolerance to a functional level. Daytime sleepiness should fade within three to four weeks.
After a 12-week regimen of RSO, the patient may want to continue the treatment but it
should be at a significantly reduced rate.
About one to two grams of RSO per month is enough for a regular maintenance dose.
Rick Simpson Oil should not be considered a cure-all for medical conditions, but many
patients have experienced significant relief from their medical symptoms and conditions
with the use of RSO.
Have you ever used RSO? How has it impacted your life?

More  Information on  Cannabis  Concentrates

So based on a testimony published in the Gleaner newspaper Is The Soursop Tree
Keeping Yvonne Kirlew Alive?
 , I did some research and found some interesting bit
of information that I will share with you. 

10,000 times stronger than Chemo.

The Soursop Tree – Drug Co’s Don’t want you to know

The SourSop  tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer
10,000 times stronger than Chemo.
Why are we not aware of this?  It’s because some big corporation want to make back
their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for
sale. Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be
* Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that   does not cause
extreme nausea,    weight loss and hair loss
* Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
* Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
* Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life
The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America ‘s
largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the
1970′s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing…

Extracts from the tree were shown to:
* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast,
prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.
* The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth
of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
* What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Soursop tree selectivelyhunts
down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!
The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Soursop tree have been extensively researched
– so why haven’t you heard anything about it? If Soursop extract is as half as promising
as it appears to be–why doesn’t every single oncologist at every major hospital insist on
using it on all his or her patients?
The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health–and for many, our very
lives(!)–are controlled by money and power.

Soursop–the plant that worked too well.

One of America’s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure
and their research centered on Soursop, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon

Various parts of the Soursop tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and
fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in
South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis.
Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and
resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties–and were shocked by the
results. Soursop proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.

But that’s where the Soursop story nearly ended.

The company had one huge problem with the Soursop tree–it’s completely natural, and
so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it.
It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to
synthesize two of the Soursop tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients.
If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Soursop so
potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back.
Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated.
There was no way the company could protect its profits–or even make back the millions
it poured into research.

As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Soursop came to a
screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not
to publish the findings of its research!
Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Soursop research team whose
conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he
contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the
Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed.

When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of
Soursop, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree.
Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Soursop–and its shocking cover-up–came
in fast and furious….
….The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976.
The results showed that Soursop’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking
and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal
report and never released to the public…

Since 1976, Soursop has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in
20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical
benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a 
treatment’s value
–were ever initiated…

A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted
at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Soursop was
found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at  “10,000 times the potency of (the
commonly used chemotherapy drug)

The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that
Soursop was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells
Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells
(such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea
and hair loss in cancer patients.

A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Soursop tree killed
cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate,
pancreatic and lung

The Warburg hypothesis, sometimes known as the Warburg theory of cancer,
postulates that the driver of tumorigenesis is an insufficient cellular respiration caused by 
insult to mitochondria.[1] The term Warburg effect describes the observation that

cancer cells, and many cells grown in-vitro, exhibit glucose fermentation even when
oxygen is present to properly respire. In other words, instead of fully respiring
in the presence of adequate oxygen,
cancer cells ferment.

He hypothesized that cancer, malignant growth, and tumor growth are caused by the
fact that 
tumor cells mainly generate energy (as e.g., adenosine triphosphate / ATP)
by non-oxidative breakdown of 
glucose (a process called glycolysis).
This is in contrast to "healthy" cells which mainly generate energy from oxidative
breakdown of 
Pyruvate is an end-product of 
glycolysis, and is oxidized within the mitochondria.

4.2. Annonaceous Acetogenins

AGEs are a unique class of C-35/C37 secondary metabolites derived from long chain
(C-32/C34) fatty acids in the polyketide pathway. They are usually characterized by a
combination of fatty acids with a 2-propanol unit at C-2 that forms a methyl-substituted
α,β-unsaturated γ-lactone []. Since the discovery of uvaricin from Uvaria accuminata 
in 1982, more than 500 AGEs have been identified from different parts of the plants in the
Annonaceae family [,]. Due to the special structures and extensive biological activities,
AGEs have attracted significant scientific interest in recent years.
Various biological activities have been reported for AGEs, including antimalarial,
antiparasitic and pesticidal activities
However, the biological activities of AGEs are primarily characterized with toxicity
against cancer cells and inhibitory effects against the mitochondrial complex I
(mitochondrial NADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase)
Phytochemical investigations and biological studies on different parts of the A. muricata plant
resulted in the identification of a wide array of AGE compounds, as summarized in Table 1.
The chemical structures of the major acetogenins are shown in Figure 2.
To the best of our knowledge, at the time of preparation (January 2015) of the present
over 100 AGEs have been identified in A. muricata.
