Part I

December 17, 2009

A small Canadian community's success with curing cancer naturally was recently crushed, forcing its provider into exile in Europe.


Rick Simpson had discovered a cure for himself and then had shared it at no cost with others in the small rural town of Maccan, Nova Scotia. Rick offered results without side effects, and the Maccan residents took advantage.


The results were amazing with even cancer patients. There are always problems promoting alternative cures. But here was an additional obstacle.


The cure was hemp oil with the illegal substance THC.



Rick's Reasons

Rick Simpson experienced a head injury at work in 1997. Afterward he was afflicted with 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 hemp and extracting the oil with THC. 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. Within days, all three skin cancers were completely healed.


Rick deduced that THC hemp oil cured cancer, but smoking marijuana would not.



Helping Others

So Rick began sharing the hemp oil within his community for free. Everyone experienced remarkable improvement by taking a drop 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 cured in weeks after the medicos had sent him home to die.

Quickly the word was out locally about Thompson's THC hemp oil. Several others were cured without side effects from a variety of serious ailments, including cancer.

Then both Ricks 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.


They wanted the world to know about this natural cure.



The Consequence of Helping

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 became concerned about the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RMPC) clamping down on Rick Simpson's life saving operation.

So Rick Simpson 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 they were disregarded and his request was turned down.


Nine months later he appealed to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court.

This time, Rick had ten cured 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 cures was threatened. Slowly it dawned on him that it wasn't just the legal system that prevented natural cannabis cures.

Rick Simpson realized that the cancer industry is focused on treating, not curing, for high profits.


Monopoly medicine and Big Pharma's concern for maintaining a massive cash flow have been the prime motive for keeping all natural cures down.

After getting shut down while trying to share his miracle cure of hemp oil with THC for cancer and to impress public officials in Nova Scotia to legalize it, Rick Simpson went public internationally.


He posted his rather well done home grown YouTube documentary "Run From the Cure" (below video).

The documentary ends with the Nova Scotia Supreme Court ruling that stopped the Maccan community's use of the cannabis oil that cures even cancer. The incredibly useful hemp plant is so maligned by greedy vested interests that growing hemp, even without THC, is commonly outlawed.

Nevertheless, Rick Simpson's THC hemp oil cancer cure has fueled a groundswell of support to legalize the hardy hemp for mankind's benefit.

Welcome to Amsterdam

On November 26th, 2009, Rick was crowned the Freedom Fighter of the Year at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.


Ironically, the day before he was been notified that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) wanted to see him when he returned. He knew returning home would keep him from using the only medicine that worked for him as he aged. So he decided to stay in Europe.

Rick felt this was primarily a tactic to keep him away because the authorities had already known what he was doing. He had made offers to freely help others with THC hemp oil public on talk radio. Some RCMP personnel were even sending sick people to Rick for cures!

He regretted not being able to return home for his fellow Canadians, but he had no choice.


Though now exiled in Europe, Rick has gained allies internationally. Now the world wide cannabis freedom movement has an empirically proven powerful curing agent as their banner for legalizing hemp with THC.



A Few Facts

As late as the 1930's in North America, medicinal hemp tinctures with THC were available in most pharmacies.


Even without THC, hemp is banned in the USA. In the 1940's, cultivating an ecologically friendly crop of hemp was phased out and made illegal.


Its many useful and economical applications tell something of the suppression's source:




Useful and Economical Applications

Suppression's Source

  1. Inexpensive non toxic Medicinal applications

  2. Hemp for oils, fuels, and even safer plastics

  3. Farmers would have an easy cash crop that doesn't require pesticides

  4. Fast growing hemp can be used in crop rotations to enrich soil for other crops

  5. Hemp can be used for textiles and other materials


  6. Paper can be made from hemp


  7. Hemp oils and seeds are extremely nutritious, virtually super foods

  1. Big Pharma and Medical Mafia

  2. Petroleum industry

  3. Pesticide Industry


  4. Fertilizer Industry


  5. Cotton growers and synthetic fiber manufacturers

  6. Lumber industry would rather chop down more trees

  7. Big Agribusiness





Those industries have succeeded with killing hemp cultivation in the 1940's, and they intend to keep it that way.


Amazingly, Canadians recently managed to get cultivating non-THC hemp allowed for some of the purposes listed above. A concerted grass roots effort managed to achieve that.


Unfortunately, small farmers in the USA are still not allowed to cultivate this easy cash crop.



One More Part Coming

Reefer madness propaganda and hippie associations have created powerful stigmas associated with hemp.


Many accept the notion of using cannabis with THC for any reason as a gateway to drug addiction, while endorsing the widespread use of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and toxic pharmaceuticals, which are often opiate based and addictive.

Hopefully, the last article in this series will present enough credible scientific evidence for major medical applications of cannabis with THC to help you release the dogma attached to hemp and cannabis.

The Medical Monopoly rashly marginalizes empirical (observed) cures as anecdotal (just stories).


Yet their scientists have been caught often with faulty testing parameters and doctored results. Ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic (India) medicines are still safely efficacious today. They managed without double blind tests or cruel experiments on animals.

After determining certain human and herbal attributes, they observed the results of applications on humans empirically. The same is true of indigenous healers. An American Native medicine man gave the world Essiac Tea for curing cancer 110 years ago.

So what about Rick Simpson's successful cancer cures in Nova Scotia with THC, the banned active ingredient of hemp oil? Several modern medical scientific reports support Rick's empirical evidence of THC for medicinal purposes.



Medical Marijuana Use

Hemp with THC has a medical history of 5000 years. THC extracts were sold in American pharmacies until the 1930's. Then opiate based pharmaceuticals began taking over the market place.

Over the past few decades, medical marijuana has emerged slightly for some medicinal uses. Since 1972, more and more physicians actually promote it. There were many cases of chemo sufferers managing better and glaucoma victims maintaining painless eyesight with marijuana.

Today the Federal Government's harassment makes it very difficult for individual states that want to allow medical marijuana.


Many individuals who need cannabis medically have to go underground and risk harsh drug enforcement, or do without and suffer.



Some Scientific Contributions

  • The American College of Physicians (ACP) recently endorsed non-smoked THC in an effort to reverse the USA Federal Government's stance on medical cannabis. The Philadelphia based ACP is the second largest physician's association in the USA.

  • Dr. Mark Sircus of Brazil asserted, "THC should be included in every cancer protocol." He cites the fact that cannabinoids of THC are able to penetrate all body barriers, making it effective if taken orally.

  • Dr. Tod H. Mikuriya also endorses THC for medical purposes. His method of applying hemp oil from a hot air vaporizer avoids the irritating, toxic byproducts of smoking.

  • Dr. Manuel Guzman's research team at Madrid's Complutense University discovered in animal studies that the less potent synthetic THC can selectively induce cell death in brain cancer tumors while healthy cells remain unharmed. This was reported in the journal Nature Medicine in 2000.

  • At the University of Milan in Naples, Italy, researchers reported in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics that even non-psychoactive compounds in marijuana inhibited the growth of brain cancer cells, selectively killing malignant cells through apoptosis (cellular suicide).




Other Positive THC Reports

Dr. Robert Ramer and Dr. Burkhard Hinz of the University of Rostock in Germany, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute Advance Access December 2007 that medical marijuana can be an effective treatment for cancer.

Also in 2007, a Harvard Medical School study showed marijuana cutting lung tumor growth in half.

Anju Preet, Ph.D., a researcher in the Division of Experimental Medicine, has determined cannabinoids/THC affect several biological functions positively, and can lead to,

"...a new road to therapy against lung cancer."

There are even more studies hidden from public awareness.


A most revealing irony was from a Virginia study funded by the National Institute of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system. Instead, what they found was that marijuana slowed the growth of lung cancer, breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia.


The DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) promptly shut down the Virginia study from further cannabis/cancer research.
