Gary Stephens and Dr. Claire Williams at their secret
cannabis farm near London.
These researchers have discovered that
three compounds found in cannabis leaves can help to reduce and
control seizures in epilepsy.
Dr. Whalley, who is leading the research
at the department of pharmacy at the University of Reading, said
tests in animals had shown the marijuana compounds effective at
preventing seizures and convulsions while also having fewer side
effects than existing epilepsy drugs.

Their use in the case of childhood cancer is compassionate.
And lucky for us, cannabis is also an
excellent treatment for radiation sickness and exposure.

Benefits of Medical Marijuana
With all the radiation that is now
entering our atmosphere, it is urgent that we now all start
ingesting a list of natural medicinals to diminish our reactions to
radioactive particles the damage this radiation will cause.
One of my favorite people,
Rick Simpson, the man in Canada that has
cancer sufferers with THC-laden
hemp oil, has a lot to
say to people as we go into our increasingly irradiated future.
“If used properly, high quality hemp
oil can provide a solution that will be of help to mankind in
alleviating the effects of increasing radiation.
experience with the use of this oil, I have found that there is
nothing more effective or more harmless that can reduce the
damage caused by radiation.
“I have seen patients suffering from cancer who were badly
damaged by the effects of radiation treatments and who were able
to completely eliminate the damage in a short time. Some who
have come to me that had radiation treatments were burned so
badly by its effects that their skin looked like red leather.
After ingesting the oil treatment their skin went back to its
normal healthy state and the radiation burns disappeared
If the oil can do this for someone that was badly
damaged by such so-called medical treatments, would its use not
be effective to combat the effects of the radiation now
emanating from Japan?
Now with the menace that all this escaping
radiation presents, we would have to be insane to turn our backs
on the use of hemp extracts to help us all deal with this
Marijuana cuts lung cancer tumor growth

Harvard Medical School study shows. The active ingredient
in marijuana cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half

documented the anti-cancer properties of cannabis and its

National Institute of Cancer, a component of the U.S. government’s
National Institutes of Health, to finally acknowledge the herb’s
therapeutic utility for patients living with disease or suffering
from the adverse side effects of cancer treatment.

effective than vitamins C or E, strong antioxidants such as cannabidiol will neutralize free radicals and so might limit the
damage and reduce the severity of radiation.

It takes the average person about 90 days to ingest the full 60-gram
I suggest that a person start with 3 doses per day about
half the size of a grain of dry rice. A dose such as this would
equal about 1/4 of a drop. After four days at this dosage, increase
your doses every four days until you are at the point where you are
ingesting about 1 gram in 24 hours, so each dose should equal 1/3 of
It takes the average person about five weeks to get to the point
where they can ingest a gram per day. Once they reach this dosage
they can continue at this rate until the cancer disappears. A gram
is just slightly less than 1 milliliter.
Using this method allows the body to build up its tolerance slowly;
in fact, I have many reports from people who took the oil treatment
and never got “high”. We all have different tolerances for any
medication. Your size and body weight have little to do with your
tolerance for hemp oil.
Be aware when commencing treatment with hemp oil that it will lower
your blood pressure, so if you are currently taking blood pressure
medication, it is very likely that you will no longer need it.
When people are taking the oil, I like to see them stay within their
comfort zone, but the truth is, the faster you take the oil the
better the chance of surviving. At the end of their treatment most
people continue taking the oil but at a much reduced rate. Six to 12
grams a year would be a good maintenance dose. I do not like to see
people overdosing on the oil, but an overdose does no harm.
side effect of this medication is sleep and rest, which play an
important role in the healing process. Usually, within an hour or so
of taking a dose, the oil is telling you to lie down and relax.
Don’t fight the sleepy feeling, just lie down and go with it.
Usually within a month, the daytime tiredness associated with this
treatment fades away but the patient continues to sleep very well at
night. The only time I would recommend that people start out with
larger doses would be to get off addictive and dangerous pain
medications. When people who are using such medications begin the
oil treatment, they usually cut their pain medications in half.
object is to take enough oil to take care of the pain and to help
the patient get off these dangerous pharmaceutical drugs. Taking the
oil makes it much easier for the patient to get off these addictive
I simply tell people the oil will do one of two things; it will
either cure their cancer or in cases where it is too late to affect
a cure, the oil will ease their way out and they can at least die
Hemp oil has a very high success rate in the treatment
of cancer; unfortunately many people who come to me have been badly
damaged by the medical system with their chemo and radiation, etc.
The damage such treatments cause have a lasting effect and people
who have suffered the effects of such treatments are the hardest to
cure. It should also be mentioned that the oil rejuvenates vital
organs like the pancreas. Many diabetics who have taken the oil find
that after about six weeks on the oil that they no longer require
insulin since their pancreas is again doing its job.
Properly made hemp medicine is the greatest healer on this planet bar
Once you experience what this medication can do you will
understand why history and I call hemp medicine a cure-all.
Hemp Oil Home
by Rick Simpson
I recommend that you grow your own hemp either in a small indoor
grow system or outdoors.
Growing it yourself will eliminate the high
cost associated with buying hemp from drug dealers. The cost of hemp
can vary greatly from dealer to dealer and so can the quality of the
hemp. For anyone new to growing hemp, a good book or video on the
subject is a necessity.
If you go to Cannabis Culture, the good
people there should be able to point you in the right direction.
Oils that drug dealers sell can have many contaminants and often
little or no THC. From my experience, most hemp oil available on the
street should be avoided for medicinal use. Make your own oil or
have someone you trust produce the oil to assure a very pure,
high-quality oil is produced.
How much to make and take?
One pound (500g) of bone-dry hemp buds will usually produce about
two ounces (55-60 mL) of high-grade oil.
This amount of oil will
cure most serious cancers; the average person can ingest this amount
in about three months. This oil is very potent so one must begin
treatment with small doses. A drop of oil about half the size of a
grain of rice, two to four times a day is a good beginning.
four or five days, start increasing your daily dosage very
gradually. As time goes on the body builds a tolerance to the oil
and more and more can be taken. In cases where people are in a great
deal of pain, I recommend that their dosage be quickly increased
until it kills the pain.
High quality hemp oil will stop pain even
when morphine is not effective. The oil can be applied to external
injuries for pain relief in minutes.
Will I get high?
Following the dosage previously described, many people can take the
full treatment and never get high. In regards to hemp, getting
“high” is a joke; even if a person does take too much oil the effect
wears off quickly and no harm is done. No one has ever died from the
use of hemp medicine.
Will I become addicted?
Hemp oil does not cause your body to crave more. It is
non-addictive, harmless, and effective for practically any medical
Is this the same as hemp seed oil?
No! This is hemp oil, made from the bud and small leaves
of the hemp plant. It is the essential oil of the hemp plant.
Health food store sells
oil made from hemp seed that is often mislabeled as hemp oil.
Although seed oil is very beneficial, it does not contain enough THC
to have any effect on cancer and other serious illnesses.
Are hemp and marijuana the same?
marijuana is one of over four hundred slang terms used
worldwide to describe
the cannabis and/or hemp plant.
Are all hemp plants the same?
When buying or growing hemp, procure a strain that has the highest
possible THC content. To energize someone suffering from depression,
I recommend a good
Sativa strain. For most other medical conditions,
I strongly suggest that Indica strains be used. Indicas relax a
person and provide them with more rest and sleep.
How do I use it?
High quality hemp oil can be vaporized, ingested or used topically.
Add the oil to creams and salves for external use.
Where can I get information about making the oil?
For someone new to making the oil I suggest that you go to “Run from
the Cure”. There you can watch our documentary in seven segments.
Segment #4 shows how the oil can be produced at home or one can go
The process in the video could only be described
as crude at best, but the oil that is produced will cure cancer. In
reality, this medicine should be produced in a controlled
environment, using distilling equipment, etc. to reclaim the solvent
and to purify the oil.
Most people do not understand distilling and
do not have access to the required equipment. This is the reason
such a simple method is described in the documentary, so if need be
just about anyone can produce the oil.
As in the video, again we
stress that this process, if not done properly can be dangerous and
we bear no responsibility if this educational information is
I generally work with a pound or more of good
grade hemp starting material. You can use just one ounce. An ounce
will usually produce 3 or 4 grams of oil.
The amount of oil produced
per ounce of hemp will vary from strain to strain, but it all has
that wonderful healing power.
Place the completely dry
starting material in a plastic bucket.
Dampen the material with the
solvent you are using. Many solvents can be used. I like to
use pure naphtha but it costs $500 for a 45-gallon drum. You
can use 99% isopropyl alcohol, which you can find in your
local drug store. Alcohol absorbs more chlorophyll from the
plant material than naphtha does. This gives oils made with
alcohol a darker color but does not diminish the potency of
the oil to any noticeable degree. Ether, naphtha or butane
and many other solvents can produce oils that are amber and
transparent. Granted these clear oils do look better but
dark oil can be just as potent. If the process is done
properly, little or no solvent residue is left in the oil. I
have been consuming oils produced using different solvents
for eight years with no harmful effects. You will require
about two gallons of solvent to strip the THC off one pound
of dry starting material. 500 milliliters of solvent should
be more than enough to strip the THC from one ounce of hemp
Crush the plant material using a
stick of clean untreated (chemical free) wood or some such
device. Even though the starting material has been dampened
with the solvent, you will find that the material can be
Add solvent until the starting
material is completely covered. Use the stick to work the
plant material. As you are doing this, the THC dissolves off
the plant material into the solvent.
Continue this process for about
Pour the solvent-oil mix off the
plant material into another bucket. You have just stripped
the plant material of about 80% of its THC.
Second wash - again add solvent to
the plant material and work it for another 3 minutes to get
the other 20%.
Pour this solvent-oil mix into
the bucket containing the first mix that was poured off
Discard the twice-washed plant
Pour the solvent-oil mix through
a coffee filter into a clean container.
Boil the solvent off. I have
found that a rice cooker will do this boil off very nicely.
The one I have has two heat settings - high and low - and will
hold over a half gallon (2.5 liters) of solvent-oil mix.
Add solvent-oil mix to the rice
cooker until it is about 3/4 full.
Make sure you are in a very well ventilated area and set up
a fan to carry the solvent fumes away. The fumes are very
flammable. Be sure to stay away from red-hot elements,
sparks, cigarettes etc. that could ignite the fumes.
Plug the rice cooker in and set
it on high heat.
Continue adding solvent-oil mix
as the level in the rice cooker decreases until it is all in
Add a few drops of water to the
solvent-oil mix as the level comes down for the last time.
The amount of water added depends on how much starting
material you had in the beginning. If I am producing oil
from a pound of good bud, I usually add about ten drops of
When there is about one inch of
solvent-oil-water mix left in the cooker, put on your oven
mitts, pick the unit up and gently swirl the contents.
Continue swirling until the
solvent has been evaporated off. The few drops of water help
release the solvent residue and protect the oil somewhat
from too much heat. When the solvent has been boiled off,
the cooker that I use automatically goes to low heat. This
avoids any danger of overheating the oil. At no time should
the temperature of the oil go over 290°F (140°C).
Put on your oven mitts and
remove the pot containing the oil from the rice cooker.
Gently pour the oil into a small
stainless steel container.
Place this container in a
dehydrator or put in on a gentle heating device such as a
coffee warmer. It may take a few hours but the water and
volatile turpentine will be evaporated from the oil. When
there is no longer any activity on the surface of the oil
the medicine is ready for use.
Pour the hot oil into a bottle;
or as in the video suck it up into a plastic syringe.
Putting the oil in a plastic syringe makes it very easy to
dispense the medicine.
When the oil cools off it has the
consistency of thick grease.
Some strains will produce very thick
oil and you may have trouble squeezing it out of the syringe. If
this happens, place the syringe in warm water a few minutes prior to
To anyone starting to use hemp oil as a medication, here are some
simple facts. Hemp oil will lower blood pressure and if you are on
blood pressure medication, you may find that this medication is no
longer needed. The same is true for diabetics. I have seen hemp oil
control blood sugar to the extent that insulin was no longer needed.
I am not a doctor and I do not have the right to tell people what
they should do.
Personally, I would not consider taking any cancer
treatments currently in use by our medical system; I do not
recommend that hemp oil be taken along with chemotherapy. What would
be the sense of making your own cure and then allowing the medical
system to give you massive doses of poison?
From my experience with hemp medicine, I have found that most
pharmaceutical medications are no longer needed once a person starts
using hemp oil.
Hemp oil seems to mix well with most natural
medications but I have had a few reports from people trying to take
hemp oil and pharmaceuticals who experienced stomach pain etc. All
problems ceased when they stopped taking the prescription drugs.
To anyone who is going to act on this information to help a loved
one, I welcome you to the world of real medicine. Again, I caution
you to be very careful when boiling the solvent off. The fumes are
very flammable. Be sure to stay away from red-hot elements, sparks,
cigarettes, etc. That could ignite the fumes.
I wish you the best luck and health.
