May 29, 2018

According to Medical News Today (2018) cancer is the number two cause of death in the United States. The medical treatment of cancer can be effective, or not, with strong side effects leaving patients feeling overwhelmingly unwell. Cannabis oil has been scientifically documented to both alleviate nausea, vomiting and pain as well as inhibit cell growth and cause tumor necrosis (Hart, Fischer & Ulrich, 2004).  

There are various different kinds of cannabis oil, made in many different ways with varying different potencies and ratios of cannabinoids. Cannabis oil known as Rick Simpson Oil is one of the primary methods of using cannabis to treat cancer and it’s side effects.  This cannabis concentrate has come to be called Rick Simpson Oil due to the man, Rick Simpson, accredited with first making and using it to cure his skin cancer. His story and information can be found on his website listed below. Rick Simpson Oil is most often made using an alcohol based solvent.  The process is readily available on the internet for those inclined to make it themselves. Rick Simpson Oil is also available at many cannabis dispensaries. When procuring it from a licensed cannabis dispensary in Oregon you will be sure it is free of pesticides and residual solvents, as it should meet mandatory testing requirements.
