Rick Simpson is one of the world’s leading Marijuana activists and the founder of Phoenix Tears. He rediscovered one of the natural cures for cancer by extracting cannabis oil from the plant! His journey started in 2003 when he was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma skin cancer. He had three spots of cancer on his body, two on his face and one on his neck. After being diagnosed with cancer he made a decision, and that decision has changed the world’s view on cannabis entirely. He reopened the worlds eye’s to the amazing benefits of cannabis. He has treated over 5000 people personally and out of those about 70% of the people who did the full protocol got well.

After going through the unsuccessful surgery, he had decided to try something different. For almost a year Rick Simpson indulged himself in extracting the oil from the cannabis plant and ingested that oil orally. Although he had been taking the cannabis oil for other health issues, the cancer diagnosis reminded him something, almost 30 years earlier he heard a radio ad which stated that “The University of Virginia had found that cannabinoid in cannabis through THC could kill cancer in mice.” From there he figured out that if this oil can kill cancer in mice there is a possibility that cannabis oil would kill his cancer too.

Rick Simpson had applied the cannabis oil to his skin and covered the affected area with bandages. After 4 days of waiting, he decided to remove the bandages and see if anything had happened under the bandages. Theresults shocked him, the cancer was totally gone, the cannabis oil had cured his cancer.

He has gone through many difficult phases in his life, but nothing can stop this determined man. Although during this period many people had criticized him, primarily he tried to tell his doctor but he would not listen. He also went to cancer organizations and tried to get their help but nobody wanted to listen about his discovery.

Finally, he decided to take matters into his own hands. He started growing cannabis on his own land and producing the oil. He even gave the oil free of cost to anyone who needed it. “If everyone had the morals and views like Rick Simpson does this world would be a different place” MA. He had faced numerous difficulties while producing the cannabis oil; he got into much trouble with authorities, police and government. Even after having his home raided plenty of times and having over 2600 cannabis plants cut down and taken by RCMP he still continued to produce the oil and help others.

But no one can deny the fact that “Every Dark Night has a Brighter Day”. In 2008, a filmmaker named “Christian Laurette” had released a documentary named “Run from the Cure” which was based on Rick Simpson’s story using cannabis to treat cancer. This documentary has been viewed by millions of individuals and has helped millions of people in the understanding and safe use of cannabis oil to treat cancer and other serious medical conditions.

Over the course of the decade, he has treated around 5000 people personally and out of those about 70% of the people who did the full protocol got well.

The world owes this great man a thank you for his bravery and persistence in making sure that everyone knows about the cannabis oil. The benefits of this oil had been known for centuries and thanks to Rick Simpson who discover some new, but remarkable treatments and uses of this essential oil, the world can now benefit from his discoveries. Especially when it comes to the dosing and protocol you should follow to treat cancer. Despite that, the new uses and treatments of Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) are constantly being discovered. However, RSO is not only used for cancer treatment, but also for numerous other diseases such as Arthritis, Insomnia, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s, Severe Depression, Pain, Seizures, and much more.
