Rick Simpson


Rick Simpson, self-proclaimed ordinary guy is on a crusade against the major global pharmaceutical companies, lawmakers, and policy makers to legalize hemp oil sales on the basis of its cure–all compounds and miraculous effects in the treatment of cancer (prostate, glaucoma, melanoma, leukemia), eating disorders, skin ailments, and liver diseases. However, what makes Rick Simpson so extraordinary is that he is not seeking to profit from his crusade by patenting his medicine (so plant drug companies cannot patent it) but providing people since 2006 with hemp oil medicines at no cost.

Why Rick Simpson is Extraordinary

Hemp oil the cure–all. Do you believe it?

Rick Simpson does and since 2003, he has treated over 5,000 people suffering from aliments, such as melanoma skin cancer, glaucoma (brain cancer), lung cancer, leukemia, scoliosis, arthritis, diabetes, obesity, anorexia, and herpes, claiming, “Seventy per cent of the patients that follow the protocol become cancer-free after ingesting 60 grams of high-quality oil.” However, this alone does not make Rick extraordinary. What makes Rick so extraordinary is that he provides this service for no personal profit. Yes, he treats people for free.

“Crush Cancer” with Hemp Oil

Rick’s crusade, “Crush Cancer,” has seen him imprisoned and forced him to flee his native country—Canada. Now residing somewhere in Europe in an undisclosed location, he is unstoppable. His drive and personal commitment to take on the big pharmaceutical companies and lawmakers to promote hemp oil as a cure for cancer has gained greater and greater awareness and a ground swell of support in both cancer treatment medical circles and public debate globally—on a daily basis—today.

Rick Simpson doesn’t believe he himself is extraordinary. But he passionately believes that the properties of hemp oil are. Hemp, one of the oldest imperial (plant–based) medicines, has been widely accepted as the cure for civilizations’ individual aliments for thousands of years until its prohibition since the 1920s by lawmakers being influenced by the greed of big pharmaceutical corporations globally.

We encourage you to share this article and information with your friends, family, and colleagues to educate them on other ways and alternative solutions available to those who may be seeking knowledge, assistance, and further research for alternative actions available for them to consider, other than blindly accepting only expensive and toxic cancer treatments on offer today.

We are encouraged to present and bring to you this extraordinary man, Rick Simpson, and his findings. Rick, who is challenging our modern way of thinking about medical advice and treatments and making us aware of a potentially more natural solution to difficult treatment decisions involving cancer, is undoubtedly extraordinary!

Top Reasons why Rick Simpson is Extraordinary

Biography of Rick Simpson

Date of Birth: Wednesday, 30 November 1949 | Born in:  / Nationality: Canada

Results to date of his treatments have been extraordinary, with over 5,000 people treated experiencing full remission of their illnesses and no longer in the need for toxic cancer treatment chemotherapy and requiring other expensive toxic drugs.

In fact, Rick claims that in his experience—depending on the individual and how long they have been receiving other modern day chemo and toxic drug treatment—an average person diagnosed with prostate cancer and ingesting just 60 grams of hemp oil over a period of three months has medical evidence of full remission from cancer. It might take longer though if they were on chemo before.

Losing a 25-Year-Old Cousin to Cancer

Rick Simpson was born in Canada in 1949 and grew up as child of the fifties and sixties. In 1969, at the age of 22, his cousin, David, was diagnosed with cancer. Initially, Rick thought the doctors must have made a misdiagnosis; as cancer at that time was not as common as it is today. He took into consideration his cousin’s very young age. Three years later, his cousin died from cancer at the age of 25.

During Rick’s 20s in the 1970s and the majority of his working career up to 1997, Rick worked in Canada’s medical circles. While working there, he witnessed for himself the expediential growth of cancer and doctors diagnosing patients with such disease among many other conditions. He was bewildered since before the 1970s, cancer had been considered rare.

As the doctors’ diagnoses of cancer in patients rose, so did the death rates from these diseases, leading Rick to often think about why and how more and more people were succumbing to these diseases.

Cancer Comes from Food and Environment, Says Rick

Later, Rick would conclude that based on his research, there can be a direct correlation between the rise of deaths from these diseases and the combination of the environment, lifestyle, and toxins people in western countries were being surrounded by and exposed to on a daily basis, such as a cocktail of chemicals, poisons and carcinogens, talc asbestos, or silicon dioxide that all wreak havoc to our immune systems. Rick even went on to conclude “that our modern day food supply is not fit for human consumption” including “the hormones added to our meat products.” Furthermore, he said, “about ninety percent of cancers are caused by our environment.”

First Attempt at Making Hemp Oil

In 1988, Rick began experimenting by growing his own marijuana and then in 1993 to 1994, he tried experimenting and making hemp oil. However, he completely messed the instructions up. He would later say that the instructions made absolutely no sense.

In 1997, Rick suffered a serious head injury with post–concussion syndrome, leaving a ringing in his ears at about 93 decibels (the sound of a lawn mower engine), 24 hours a day. Sometimes, the noise gets even louder. For five years, he tried all the chemical prescription and medications his doctors prescribed to him; however none of them did him any good. On the contrary, Rick felt that “all they did was make me feel worse.”

In 1998, watching the television show presented by Dr. David Suzuki called “The Nature of Things,” he saw all these people smoking pot. The show highlighted the effects of marijuana and how they helped people with their health conditions. Rick would say that before that time, he never really thought about hemp being medicine.

Smoking Marijuana to Get Rid of Nasty Ringing

Willing to try things for himself, he called up and spoke with a friend of his and asked him for some marijuana. After smoking about half of the joint he said he found that the effect and result was better than the medicines he had been taking and the noise in his head had gone away; however, whenever he asked his doctor for a prescription, he would say no.

By 1999, Rick was so aghast with his head injury that he was contemplating suicide by putting a shotgun in his mouth. As he was about to pull the trigger because he could not see any way he could get his normal life back, he thought about the mess his children would have to face. He decided to struggle on.

Instead of brood, he started to look for ways he could help himself. For some reason, the previous trial of hemp oil popped back into his mind. He thought if smoking pot had helped him so much, what would happen if he had the concentrated oil?

The Second Attempt: Successful Self-Medication with Hemp Oil

Later in 1999, the second time Rick made the oil, he realized the mistakes in the instructions he had been given the first time. In his second attempt, he decided to explore ways on how to extract the oil on his own. “Potent perfect,” said Rick about the result. However, he didn’t take the oil on a regular basis until 2001. Again, he approached his doctor for a medical prescription but they wouldn’t give him any. Worse, he told him that there were no other manmade prescriptive medicines they could recommend him as he had tried them all to no avail. Between not getting well and becoming a criminal, he opted for the latter. Since he had no idea about what the “stuff would do,” he began to take small doses. Over a month, he increased his doses. By the end of the first month, he was taking about a quarter of a gram of oil about an hour before he went to bed each night. The dose would “knock him out.” The following morning, he said he would get out of bed rested and well. (Since the post–concussion syndrome, he had difficulty sleeping.) Not only that, his arthritis in his knees was gone. He has been having trouble with his knees since he was 45 years old.

Rick would also say that despite all the improvements, he felt scared because he was losing weight fast. He weighed 185 to 190 pounds before. After taking hemp oil, his weight dropped to about 165 to 170. When it leveled out 160 pounds, he stopped losing weight. He later on said, “It was like the oil knows this is how much you should weigh.” In a nutshell, the hemp oil brought him back to a state of really good health. He only consumed about one third of the food he used to eat because the oil seems to keep him away from the desire to crave for junk foods.

Also after taking the oil for about three to four weeks, his body seemed to have grown accustomed to it. He no longer felt tired and the other side effects were gone. It wasn’t until he self-treated and experimented by putting the hemp oil onto his melanoma skin cancers that he witnessed the amazing healing properties of hemp oil.

Convinced by his own experience, he did some research. He found out that hemp has, for centuries, been the cure–all of many civilizations that practiced the use of imperial medicine (plant–based), rather than mixing chemicals to make drugs (prescriptive–based). Since 2003, he has offered his services for free and has treated around about 5,000 different types of people with all different types of medical conditions, including all types of cancer, skin scoliosis, leukemia, diabetes, chronic pain, planter’s warts, melanoma moles, herpes, or anything viral and bacterial–based. The results were convincing, “Seventy per cent of the patients that follow the protocol become cancer-free after ingesting 60 grams of high-quality oil," claims Simpson.

The discovery of this new cure excited Rick and he tried to get his message out as quick as he could to as many people as possible. However, the long arm of the law was out to catch him. Even though he offered his services free of charge, the Royal Canadian Mounty Police (RCMP) raided his home in 2005. They ordered him to cease his hemp oil production and charged him with possession and trafficking of marijuana.

Rick vehemently argued that this raid was a set up and staged to prevent him from supplying medicine and spreading the truth about the medicinal value of the help plant. He lamented, “How many drug dealers do you know that openly grew cannabis and produced the essential oil from the plant and then gave this oil away free of charge to those in need?”

Sentenced to Four Days in Jail for “Drug” Trafficking

On Rick’s 58th birthday in 2007, he was convicted of trafficking five grams of an illegal substance and was put in jail for four days. The actual circumstances surrounding the event were that he had supplied five grams of hemp oil to a woman—free of charge—in her twenties who came to him after saying she had a back condition and was unable to work. In 2008, he was sentenced to serve four days in jail for the crime of trafficking he had committed.

In 2009, Rick’s home was again raided and he was seized by the RCMP. That actually was the third time his home had been subject to a raid and the event occurred the day after High Times Magazine named Rick Simpson the Freedom Fighter of the Year Award after his video called Run from the Cure Documentary and his Crush Cancer Tour. Rick fled to Europe to an undisclosed location, fearing incarceration in Canada. He was concerned that he might end up in jail instead of finding ways to cure cancer. Worse, he feared for his life. His only alternative was to become an exile and political refugee in Europe.

Writing a Book while on Exile

The year 2010 was a busy year for Rick as his publicity and fame rose throughout Europe and the subculture of alternative medical treatment. He was sought for interviews, public speaking events, and public marches. He also wrote a book called “Phoenix Tears.”

In 2011, Rick continued with his busy public speaking schedule, visiting countries, such as Croatia, and releasing his first book. His video about how to create and make your own hemp oil, along with his other videos espousing the curing abilities of hemp, had gone on to become internet favorites with over 680,000 downloads.

Today, Rick Simpson continues his crusade to stamp out cancer in his own innovative way, his passion to make alternative imperial medication available to all cancer sufferers is extraordinary in the face of adversity, public ignorance, and big pharmaceutical business muscle that want to keep the alternative medicine away from the public as it negatively impacts their financial bottom line and return to shareholders.

We encourage you to share this article and information with your friends, family, and colleagues to educate them on other ways and alternative solutions available to those who may be seeking knowledge, assistance, and further research for alternative actions available for them to consider, other than blindly accepting only expensive and toxic cancer treatments on offer today.

Hi,The reason for my letter is I am wondering if you have any research in regard to hemp oil and MS. I have several patients in my care that are dealing with MS and find that ingesting MM has been the only relief they have found. Since hemp oil is so much more powerful than marijuana in it's natural state, I am wondering if you have found any curative effects as you have found with cancer in regard to this devastating disease and if you have what the dose would be. I have made my first batch with no difficulties and the people that have tried it are having the same kind of results as the patients in the video. I am so grateful to have medicine so powerful at my disposal. I really appreciate having you guys as allies. Thanks again for your work.–Blessings, A.D. CO USA

Hey Rick,I just thought you would be interested in knowing that RFTC [Run From The Cure] has been running on our local cable access channel for a month now. The film has also shown at least once in the local high school that I know of. My friend with MS has been doing about a half of a gram a day for the last 3 weeks and she was discharged from her physical therapy today because of her "miraculous" improvement in – guess! ‘the last 3 weeks’.–A.D.

Have successfully made PTears here...So far so good and have had two successes with people suffering diabetic ulcers where both cases were quoted with amputation by the respective doctors. Both are fully recovered.–G. P. South Africa

I have been treating basal cell carcinoma,(skin cancer) with cannabis oil. The Veterans Medical Center Dermatology clinic was told before I started treatment, what I was going to do. I started treating two lesions on my forehead on 6/22/08. I went to the VA today at their request. THEY had made an appointment for me. This appointment was for the sole purpose of examining the two lesions I had treated. Two doctors examined me. They both said the same thing. The upper lesion still needed more treatment. This confirmed what I already knew. They both agreed that the lower lesion had been cured. One doctor said that he would not have ordered a biopsy on the lower lesion, because there appeared to be NO reason to do so. NO CANCER PRESENT. This is to me federal confirmation that cannabis does indeed have medical value. Both of these lesions had been biopsied, and diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma before I started my treatment.–J.S. TX

I have been taking the hemp oil for the past 60 days with tremendous positive success for a chronic pain condition I have had since I was 18 years of age. For the first time that I can remember, I have little or no pain with the Ankylosing Spondylitis I have had to suffer with all my life. My kidney and liver function were damaged from the years of anti-inflammatory medication leaving me with a chronic pain condition on top of what I already had, that had to be dealt with by using addictive pain drugs. I spent years laying on my back being unable to move due to the damage caused by the disease and the drugs used to deal with the pain. Although I was able to eventually stop all pharmaceutical drugs that were only prolonging and increasing my pain, I was only just existing until a good friend mentioned the tears to me, asked me if I'd try it, they gave me a sample and your website to study. I began taking the hemp oil during a flare-up that was leading me back from where I had just come from. Within two hours of starting the Phoenix Tears program I began to feel my body relax and the pain immediately diminish. I slept that night like I had never before. A deep sleep with complete relaxation, something I had never experienced in my adult life. Each day there has been a great reduction in my pain level allowing me to once again continue with my work. I am so very grateful to you for this.–Best wishes, G.D. AB Canada

I too am in poor health and have been using this [hemp oil] for almost 1 month and have had remarkable improvement. I have had head aches and blurred vision for 6 years from an automobile accident and have been given drug after drug over that time some with horrible side affects.–T.D. Canada

I have advanced arthritis and numerous other boring conditions and symptoms, including continuous muscle and nerve spasms. During the initial five years of my diagnosis I was given over 50 different pharmaceutical medications. None of them worked to control my pain and spasms, but nearly all of them had debilitating side effects ranging from increased panic attacks to severe addiction...I have been using small amounts, usually an eighth to a quarter of an ounce I have been using this recipe for almost two months and it works. I am using it topically several times a day. My friend Doris is using it internally; she...also suffers arthritis. We both experience improved vision as a 'side effect' and it is a Godsend for pain relief. Doris's 20-yr-old granddaughter was diagnosed last fall with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and went through standard chemo and radiation 'treatments'. She suffered severe burns to her esophagus and was unable to take food or fluids. We began giving her the oil about six weeks ago. Her cancer is in remission, no sign of it. I want to thank you so much for making this film and for doing the work you do. I ask the Lord to bless you and to continue guiding your steps. You are my hero, Sir!–L.M.A. Vermont

NB Canada

Hello,I have been talking to a friend of mine about your work with hemp oil and all of the health benefits that come with taking it. I almost have her convinced to try it but she wanted me to check and see if you have ever treated anyone that had Juvenile diabetes? Also a friend of mine here in N.B. has been taking the oil for approx 2.5 months now as a cancer treatment and he is doing great. He says that he is feeling perfect and that he can’t remember feeling this good for a long time and he has absolutely NO PAIN. Also a 19 year old boy from the community that has cancer just started taking the oil. He had been in bed for 3 days previous to taking the oil and had not been eating much of anything and was in a lot of pain and discomfort. The remarkable thing is that approx 20 minutes after taking a dose of the oil he got out of bed and walked out to the kitchen and asked for something to eat. Also that night he slept through the entire night and did not have to get up to take his pain medication. This is truly remarkable. On behalf of these 2 people and their families I thank you. And may God bless you all for your remarkable work.–THANKS AGAIN, H. NB Canada

Dear Rick,My family and I want to thank you for helping my husband to get better. The doctor felt that he had old age Leukemia, showing up in his blood test as a cancerous infection. After taking hemp oil for just a few weeks his new blood test showed great improvement. There is just light infection and he no longer needs to see an oncologist. He is now enjoying our new grandson and at age 82 is planning to be with us for a long time to come. Rick thank you again, may God bless you and keep you well.–Sincerely, T.T. ON Canada

RICK!!! at the age of fifty-six years, I was diagnosed in January 2011 by UCLA to have distal colon cancer.I used your oil in California legally for four months and now the Doctors at St. Lukes are unable to tell me if there is any cancer in me. They still insist I go to consultation for surgery, without any indication of what kind of cancer, if any, I have. There are all kinds of excuses given to me as to why my MRA from 4-11 results have not been included in my medical file. Incompetent medical procedure has claimed the lives of at least four people in my family. If we can prove I am cured, I would be a most willing poster boy for your cause. Thanks a million. Ralph

Quotes by Rick Simpson

Knowledge for all people.
I never thought I’d stubble upon this!
The medicine is coming and we know it.
We are the human race, the future is ours to create.
The cops, they get sick too and they come see me!
We are at the dawn of new age in medicine and a new day for mankind.
If you do die, you will die with dignity and not full of such drugs as morphine.
...anyone with cancer should be doing everything they possibly can to optimize their chance of survival.
If the human race does not act, then it can only be said, that we are the authors of our own destruction.
I encourage people to do is stay away from the medical system and use common sense. Use mother nature to heal.
People who are the hardest to cure are the ones who have allowed themselves to be severely damaged by the medical system.
