Rick Simpson’s “Canadian Cancer Cures” and the Rising Cannabis Oil Movement


By Paul Fassa

Cannabis oil and its variations have made mainstream news with its positive effects on various diseases, including cancer, a disease that conventional medical therapies often complicate or worsen. All with great expense.

Earlier this century, Rick Simpson had discovered a way to heal his own cancer, and then had shared his remedy at no cost with others in the small town of Maccan, Nova Scotia. According to the Maccan community, Rick offered impressive results without side effects at no cost, and the local residents took advantage. The reported results were amazing with not only cancer patients, but others with “incurable” disorders.

The medical industry is geared toward patented pharmaceuticals, so there are often obstacles promoting ‘alternative’ (non-pharmaceutical) remedies. But now here was an additional obstacle. The treatment that was working so well was hemp oil with the illegal substance THC. The small Canadian community’s success with reversing cancer naturally was forcibly stopped, driving its provider into exile in Europe.

This was the beginning of the recent surge of cannabis oil being sought after by people with cancer, Crohn’s Disease, children’s chronic epileptic seizures, and other ailments. According to research, this oil is more potent medically than smoking, juicing or even vaporizing cannabis. It’s not just for “getting high”.

Rick’s Reasons

Rick Simpson experienced a head injury at work in 1997. Afterward he was afflicted with a severe post concussion syndrome. He was put on pharmaceuticals, which created dysfunctional side effects. He heard about the medical benefits of marijuana. So Rick purchased a bag and began smoking daily.

Eventually, both the post concussion syndrome and the pharmaceutical drug fog vanished completely. Rick’s doctor discouraged him from smoking. So Rick decided on growing his own THC hemp and extracting the oil from whole plants. He reduced a pound of plants by slow boiling in a solution to get a small tube of thick THC concentrated oil.

Soon after he began, Rick was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma. After one of the three cancers was removed surgically, it came back. So he decided to try the THC laden hemp oil topically. According to Rick, within days, all three skin cancers were completely healed and he deduced that THC hemp oil killed cancer, but smoking marijuana would not.

Helping Others

So Rick began sharing the hemp oil within his community without charging. Reports from the Maccan community are that remarkable improvements were seen by taking a small dose orally, twice daily, or applying it topically. Rick Dwyer, the manager of the local Royal American Legion branch was very impressed. His father’s terminal lung cancer was reportedly reversed in weeks from Rick’s oil after the hospital had sent him home to die.

Quickly the word was out locally about Simpson’s THC hemp oil. Several others are reported to have recovered or greatly benefited without side effects from a variety of serious ailments, including cancer, heart disease, and MS.

Then both Ricks, Simpson and Dwyer, decided there should be town meetings in the Legion hall about the THC hemp oil, and that they would see what to do about spreading the word.

The Consequence of Healing

The publicity from a curious Canadian media raised enough of a stir for the Legion to close the Maccan branch and fire Rick Dwyer as the local manager. Then the locals reportedly became concerned when the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RMPC) clamped down on Rick Simpson’s life saving operation. Rick Simpson decided to pre-empt that strong possibility. He went to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to acquire legal exemption for using his oil as medical marijuana. He took 14 dozen sworn affidavits from those he had helped in Maccan. But those affidavits were disregarded and his request was turned down.

Nine months later he appealed to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. This time, Rick had ten now-healthy citizens and six doctors present to testify. Their testimonies were not even allowed. His appeal was rejected, and his little local operation of supplying free cannabis oil was threatened. According to Rick, the benefits of natural cannabis were being suppressed, and that the cancer industry is focused on treating, not curing.

Fortunately, minor variations of Rick Simpson’s oil are being produced and used successfully in legal ‘medical marijuana’ states. And there are a few individuals who produce the oil that can send it to others safely. But it seems as though the cancer industry on the whole doesn’t want to know about a product that can’t be patented.

A well produced documentary of Rick’s saga with instructions on how to make the oil was produced with the help of friends — cleverly titled “Run From the Cure”. He used naptha as a solvent. But many others reportedly use 195 proof pure grain alcohol, which is considered by most to be safer. You can view the first documentary “Run From the Cure” below.

Of course, we encourage you to do your own research, consult with your preferred health care professional(s), and make informed decisions.
