In 2008, RSO creator Rick Simpson revealed a documentary entitled Run From The Cure, which recounted his experience and discovery of how cannabis could treat cancer with concentrated cannabis oil (aka RSO). Since then, many Cannabis oil patients have used the oil to treat cancer. It is all anecdotes, and anecdotes are not science, but due to the hostility of the U.S. government by making it illegal to do research on cannabis, a scientific inquiry into the purported cancer curative potential of cannabis has never been undertaken.
Nevertheless, there is a peer-reviewed scientific study recommending that cannabis be an effective anti-cancer agent. Published in the Journal of Cannabis Research 2004 by Dr Manuel Guzman of the Complutense University of Madrid in Spain, he found that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) inhibited the development of brain tumours in laboratory mice. Additionally, in 2006, Dr. Donald Tashkin from the David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles, whose research was funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Drug Abuse, found that smoking cannabis did not cause lung cancer and there was also evidence of a “protective effect.”
Now there has been a flood of other study papers exhibiting evidence of how cannabis can inhibit the development of prostate cancer, brain cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, pancreatic cancer, lymphoma and more.
“Cancer-fighting properties of cannabis are due to a medicine’s inherent cannabinoids, which that selectively target and work to eliminate cancer cells.”
The cancer-fighting traits of cannabis are due to medicine’s inherent cannabinoids, which selectively target and work to eliminate cancer cells. Unlike FDA approved anti-cancer medications, it does so without damaging the surrounding non-cancerous cells. These cannabinoids are such powerful anti-cancer agents that Dr Taskin’s study found that they can actually inhibit the development of cancer in the presence of cancer-causing agents such as the carcinogens found in tobacco smoke.
How this comes about is still being studied, but apparently, when the cannabinoid THC connects to the CB1 or CB2 cannabinoid receptor site on a cancer cell, it causes the death of the cancerous cell, but will not cause the death of a normal non-cancerous cell. This is the basis for RSO—a super concentrated cannabis oil. In an exclusive interview for CULTURE Magazine, Simpson stated “All the oils I produce have extremely high THC levels. THC is the cancer killer.”
To understand how RSO is made and its proper use to treat cancer, Simpson explained his process in detail, explaining that “the oils I produce are in the 90 per cent range and some are even higher. It is an extremely strong extract but it is harmless. If you produce these extracts from the sleepy sedative indica strains what happens is that the person takes their dose and usually an hour later the oil is telling them to go lay down. I tell them just take your dosage and when you get that sleepy feeling, don’t fight it. Just go to bed, lie down and enjoy the ride.”
Dosing with RSO is not rocket science. Simpson recommends that “people ingesting a gram or one millilitre a day—like three doses a day—early in the morning, mid-afternoon and about an hour before bed” for a period of 60 to 90 days. However, patients must start at much lower levels with RSO, cautioning that it can take about four to five weeks to safely increase their dosage. There is a bevvy of more information on RSO and its uses.
