Rick Simpson about the book


“I wanted to share my experience with you, concerning all the difficulties I encountered, after I discovered that extracts from cannabis hemp plant can cure cancer, and also cure or control a wide variety of other serious medical problems as well.

I also described the medical miracles, many patients have experienced, with the use of these extracts. For the most part, this book covers my story from 2003, up until 2012. I hope we will all have the freedom to grow our own plants, so we can make and use this life saving medication.”

Rick Simpson Oil - Natures Answer to Cancer

Rick Simpson’s journey to help people heal themselves with his rediscovery of the amazing medical properties of the cannabis plant and the powerful oils produced from the indica varieties is triggering changing attitudes towards this plant and its legal status, worldwide. Now, more than ever, this book provides an important change in perspective regarding our right to medicines already found in nature. 

This book provides an overview of Rick Simpson's experiences with patients suffering from a variety of medical conditions such as:


amongst others. These patients have used the cannabis oil he was making and giving away freely while still living in Canada and growing cannabis plants in his own back yard. The positive results these people have achived with the use of Rick Simpson Oil is what has earned Rick Simpson the title of being the 'grandfather of cannabis oil'. Namely, it was Rick Simpson who first rediscovered the healing properties of cannabis oil back in 2003 when he first cured his own skin cancer using the cannabis oil he had made himself.

Cure Your Own Cancer by Lincoln Horsley

In 1975 an article in the Journal of the National cancer institute titled "Antineoplastic Activity of Cannabinoids,” they reported that “Lewis lung adenocarcinoma growth was retarded by the oral administration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBD). Mice treated for 20 consecutive days with THC and CBD had reduced primary tumor size.” 

In 1998, a research team at Madrid’s Complutense University Led by Dr. Manuel Guzman discovered that THC can selectively induce programmed cell death in brain tumor cells without negatively impacting surrounding healthy cells. They reported in the March 2002 issue of “Nature Medicine” they had destroyed incurable brain cancer tumors in rats by injecting them with THC. And in 2007 even Harvard Researchers found that compounds in cannabis cut the growth of lung cancer. There is also an organization called The SETH Group that showed compounds in cannabis can stop the growth of human glioblastoma multiforma (GBM) brain cancer cells The SETH Group says "No chemotherapy can match this nontoxic anti-cancer action." Even last year in 2012 a pair of scientists at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco found THC stops metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer.

Those are just a few of the studies done that show the effects of cannabis on cancer. Even after all of the research behind this it seemed that this treatment was being ignored. So over the next year and a half I began talking about this to pretty much anyone that would listen and found that like myself, most people had not heard anything about cannabis oil as a treatment for cancer. 

In November 2011 all of that talking finally reached the right person. I was contacted by a man who was looking for help. This man wishes to remain anonymous so I'll refer to him as Bob. Bob had stage 4 cancer in his stomach, throat and pancreas. Over the course of about 6-8 weeks from when Bob was diagnosed, he became so sick he could no longer eat and he lost over 50lbs. He was actually supposed to be dead before thanksgiving and when i first talked to him he was given about 2 weeks to live.

Bob had been given radiation the month before he contacted me and he and his doctor were hopeful that would help. But instead of helping it seemed to make his cancer worse. So instead of trying to continue to help Bob, his doctor told him he was sorry but the cancer had spread too much and there was nothing left to do for him. Bob's doctor simply told him to go home and die. 

Bob has a son and when i first spoke with him he was so scared and sad about dying and leaving his son alone. Being a father myself I immediately felt for him and wanted to help. He asked me if i could help make the oil because he had no way of doing it alone so i agreed to help him. Within 2 days of our first conversation Bob was taking the cannabis oil. For the 8 weeks before Bob started to take the oil he wasn't able to keep real food down so he lost about 50lbs. He was only living on boost drinks and protein bars. Because the tumors in his body caused him so much pain he was unable to sleep. After his first dose of oil he was finally able to keep real food in his stomach and sleep soundly. He requested and ate 2 turkey sandwiches and a bowl of ice cream. He kept all of down.

One piece of advice I offer from his experience is to follow the dosage instructions provided here. He took about 10 times the recommended dose his first time. The only side effect he experienced was sleep but since he was not used to the effects of the oil it caused him to feel uncomfortable. He slept 8 hours straight. Tommy Chong did the same thing and took a large amount more than is recommended and explained his feeling like a "coma" because it was very hard to come out of the sleepiness to get up and move around.

After Bob's first dose, he never took more than was recommended and he never experienced that side effect again. 

Bob went back to his doctor for an appointment 30 days after starting his treatment with cannabis oil. His doctor had scheduled the visit for 2 weeks after Bob was supposed to have been dead. Bob didn't tell his doctor he had starting ingesting the oil and when he went back on this visit his tumors had reduced by 20%. His doctor was surprised at his progress so he scheduled him for another appointment 30 days later. 

On the 60 day appointment Bob would get his best news yet. The cancer he had in his throat, stomach and pancreas had been reduced so significantly they considered him in "remission". I would think that a doctors first instinct would be to ask his patient what he has done differently to cause this change in his cancer, but that was not the case. Instead they offered him radiation for a second time. The second time though he decided not to take the treatment. He instead continued the cannabis oil treatment and is still alive today cancer free. It is a miracle of this God given plant.

So after I was personally able to help someone cure themselves of stage 4 cancer I started to think of other ways I could spread this message and help more people, more than just the people I come in contact with every day. I wanted to be able help other people all over the world. I also wanted to save people all those hours of researching information on cannabis and cancer by providing it all in one place. So I created CYOC to be able to do those things. Since I started CYOC, the site has been accessed by people in 147 countries and has been viewed hundreds of thousands of time. Hopefully this site has been able help to someone. Please feel free to email me at to share any success story you have or to share how CYOC has helped you or someone you know. Good luck and God bless.
