Marijuana has been used for medicinal treatments for years back but it wasn’t until Rick Simpson appeared that its revolutionary properties in the treatment against cancer were revealed. Rick Simpson, now one of the greatest activists for the legalization of hemp oil, has cured over 5000 people with his revolutionary recipe, starting with himself first. As soon as he heard about the debate on this subject in Belgrade, Serbia, he immediately decided to go there and try to explain to everyone how much it can help in the treatment of the deadliest forms of cancer.
Simpson swears by his recipe and believes that hemp or cannabis oil can cure some of the deadliest forms of cancer as well as a number of other illnesses like diabetes, arteriosclerosis, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, asthma, psoriasis, and so on. Although this oil has been used for centuries, due to the rise of the billion-dollar pharmaceutical industry, it was banned in the second half of the 20th century.
Rick, who is a mechanical engineer and a self-taught doctor, himself was diagnosed with the most severe case of skin cancer back in 2002 and used hemp oil to cure this deadly disease. He says: “I always tell people – Cannabis will cure you, and you will see that at present, it is the best cure there is in the world!”
After his diagnosis in 2002 Rick underwent a couple of unsuccessful surgeries on the three pigmented lesions on his face and the doctors told him that there’s nothing more they can do. They would remove the lesions only to have them reappear after a while. He didn’t want to give up so he decided looking into some alternative solutions. Since he was an avid herbalist he decided to turn to the plants for a cure. He remembered reading about a study from the University of Virginia which stated that THC, the active component in cannabis was effective in the treatment of cancer. Without thinking twice he took out a vile of cannabis oil he had previously prepared, applied it on the lesions, bandaged them and waited. And that’s how his story starts.
