The Cannabis.Net interview with Rick Simpson, of Rick Simpson’s Oil fame. For more information on Rick and how his oil recipes are curing cancer, as well as a host of other diseases, please visit his site Pheonix Tears.
Ah, there you are. Very good…
Okay, we got each other.
Alright. Rick, it’s a pleasure to meet you, I’m Curt at Cannabis.net, and you’re kinda one of my Michael Jordan hero. So, thanks for taking the time with us today.
Well, the real hero in all of this is actually the extracts, I’m just the messenger.
So, just to update people, there’s a lot of things on the internet about your oil, I don’t wanna go too far in the beginning of the story, but… How about you tell us… A lot of people think you live in the US or Canada, can you explain where you’re at right now in life and why, living?
I’m living in Croatia, I’m in Europe. I gave up on Canada a couple of years ago. Actually, for the last… Well, since 2009 I’ve been spending most of my time in Europe, but I don’t… People are under the misconception that I live in the US and all of this, and I can’t even travel into the US. The Canadian government gave me a criminal record for saving people’s lives and that prohibits me from even traveling into the United States. So, I haven’t been in the US since… What was that?
Do you feel if you entered the US you would be arrested? Say if you flew into New York or LA?
Oh, they would probably… They’d likely toss me in Guantanamo Bay for God’s sakes, I’m a medical terrorist.
Honestly, I don’t know what’s wrong with the people of… The American people, or for that matter people everywhere, why do they take this nonsense from their governments? It’s a God given plant and we all have the right to use, it even says that right in the Bible, and yet people cower and are afraid of their stupid governments and their police forces. And I have to laugh at these people in a way because these police officers themselves, they have family members that these extracts would be a great benefit for. But I treated many police officers myself and their families, and believe me, when one of them are dying, well then they started singing a whole different tune in regards to this medication. It’s just sickening, the simple truth is the American government or nobody anywhere ever had the right to outlaw this plant’s use in the first place. We used it for thousands of years all through history. It was basically man’s best fiend. But the big money didn’t want it that way, the same big money that controls our governments in the shadows, they wanted sell their own… Do the things their own way so they could make big profits, so the first thing you do, prohibit cannabis. Cannabis doesn’t present a danger to the public, but it does present a great danger to these big money types.
Gotcha. Well, they say that people have changed due to inspiration or desperation and it feels like we’re at desperate times now for some of these medical researchers and people who are dying in-sick. Could you just tell our viewers a little bit what’s the difference who people that are neophytes and just beginning between Rick Simpson Oil and say temp oil or CBD type oil? Give us a background.
Well, the oils that I produced were all from the indica strains, they heavy sedative indica strains, and the more powerful the better. And that really, that’s the real what they call now, the Rick Simpson Oil, that’s the real oil, but thanks to Sanjay Gupta and fools like that, they get on CNN and they start spurting off about about CBD. Now, my oils or the extracts that I produced did contain a certain amount of CBD, there’s no question, maybe 2%, maybe even up to 6%, but the THC levels in the oils that I produced were very very high. So, and if you look at things, like the American Cancer Institute itself openly admits right on their own webpages, that THC is very effective in the treatment of several different forms of cancer. It’s like I said, I don’t say that CBD doesn’t have it’s benefits, but I’ll tell you one thing brother, if you’ve got cancer, you better be looking for THC. Having a small CBD content could be beneficial, no question, but it’s the THC that to me it’s the main cancer killer.
And I would also like to tell people out there that I do not sell this oil, I’m not in the position to supply the extract even to myself, but there’s all kinds of people out there making claims that they’re selling the real Rick Simpson Oil, and they’re… They’re using my name to sell their products. And in many cases people order these extracts and what they get has little or no healing value at all. So, it really is one big scam and I’m disgusted about it all. Are we froze up?
I can still see you but I see it says “Internet problem”, but I think we’re okay. Can you still hear me?
Okay, there you go.
Yeah, okay. No, I mean, it really disgusts me that this type of thing is going on. And of course the governments, they’re happy to see this taking place, because they wanna see these extracts discredited, and what better way to do that than to let all these criminals scam the public with these extracts that have, like I said, no healing values. It discredits the use of this medication. But the real extracts themselves, if they’re properly made, they really do have the healing powers that I’ve always told the public, so this is what people have to understand. I’m not in this for the money, I simply… We put up the phoenixtears.ca website back in 2004, and we told the whole world how to heal themselves, for nothing. The information’s all there. I sold… I have two books on this subject which are available on my website too, and we brought up the… And actually the first book, Phoenix Tears: The Rick Simpson Story, that’s available in print.
And if we… We just started a publishing firm here in Europe called simpsonramadur.com and you can order the Spanish translations and the English books through that website as well. But the idea was is to give people the knowledge so they could make their own extracts and become self-sufficient. But so many people they just, “No, where do I buy it?” I get these emails all the time, “Where can I go to get the extracts?” Well, how would I know? I have no idea about the medical qualities of extracts produced by others. So, it’s impossible for me to answer such questions and like I said, my goal was to have people produce their own. And they always come back, “Well, it’s against the law where I live.” Damn, it was against the law practically everywhere until just recently, but if you have a sick or dying loved one, damn the laws. Roll the cannabis you need and produce the extract to heal them. These governments, and the whole thing is nothing but a fraud, and I think it’s just about time for the human race to grow up.
That sounds like it’s happening worldwide. You’re actually right at the beginning of the legal tipping point and tidal wave for this subject. In our lifetime, in 2016. Look what’s going on in the US and Europe, and what’s gonna happen when the US goes federally. You’ll be one of the guys on the Mount Rushmore of this movement.
Well, I don’t really care about that, it’s like I said, the oil is really the hero in all of this… It’s just that I got put in the circumstances where I had to use the oil to deal with my own medical problems. And believe me, when I started discovering the real healing powers of this substance, I was just blown away.
Okay. I have a theoretical for you, since you…
No, because I had cancer patients coming to me, people dying with terminal cancer, they were also diabetics, they had arthritis, and all kinds of problems. They would get on these extracts and everything that was wrong with them would just disappear over a short period of time. I had arthritis and things myself, it all disappeared. The oil brought me back to a healthy weight, and then it cured my cancer. People get up there and they say, “Oh, how dare you say that cannabis cures cancer.” Well, I have the pathology reports and everything to prove that it had. And I had a huge amount of evidence to back me up.
I went through the corrupted legal system in Canada. And these judges and the rest of them, they’re all involved in this right up to their necks. Because again, like I said, no one ever had the right to outlaw this plant in the first place. And really, what’s been going on in Canada, 1923, they outlawed it in Canada. 1937 they used the tax act in the US to basically outlaw it. And since that time, both the Canadian government and the American government have been committing genocide against their own people. Harry Anslinger went to United Nations, I think it was in 1954, and he had cannabis declared to be a non medicinal plant. Look at this plant’s history. It’s used in medicine.
How dare anybody say that cannabis is non medicinal. And then the single convention tree in 1961 and then some treaties afterwards… Basically if you wanted to be a member of the esteemed United Nations, which is also controlled by the rich elite, then you had to make sure that your public did not have access to cannabis. The whole thing is a fraud and it disturbs me that so many people worldwide are suffering and dying, for no other reason than greed. And this is what this is all about because in reality our world is being run by… You can only call them what they are, they’re a pack of psychopaths. And all they want is money and power, and they don’t care who they have to hurt or harm to get what they want. And that’s whats going on.
Let me ask you, as far as having as much history and knowledge about the oil, if I had a time machine and could look three years in the future, when there’s a lot of research on this and you’ll be vindicated or validated. What are the three things that the oil you’re recommending are gonna show us. What are the three that I don’t know right now. Is it gonna cure x cancer… What do you know that that we’re all gonna find out say, three years from now?
Well, see the problem is the proper research has always been held back.
This has been my goal, to get a big facility, a big firm, grow the proper strains, produce the extracts, and then evolve them to even higher healing levels, which would be quite easy to do. But when people caught on to all this and they all started running off in different directions. To me, what I see happening in the US makes absolutely no sense. Even the cannabis movement itself, you look at organizations like NORML, and they’re going along with the government. Please tax and regulate it. We don’t need… We grew this plant for thousands of years with no regulations at all, so why do we need to regulate it? Nobody dies from cannabis. This is ridiculous. But, what I see happening right now, the governments are all trying to keep a lid on this because they want their friends in the pharmaceutical industry to control this. But the simple truth is, most of us really don’t have much money. And are we gonna go out, and are we going to pay the pharmaceutical industry tens of thousands of dollars for a treatment that we can grow right in our own backyards and produce ourselves? By now people should realize the pharmaceutical industry, they’re nothing but a pack of gangsters. And if they supplied extracts, they would never supply you with the real thing, because they don’t want you to heal.
They want you to keep coming back and buying more. So this is what I see happening. The governments are playing this control game right now, but I think in a short time within the next couple years, that people will just say, “Get lost.” They’ll go out and grow their own cannabis. They can’t put everybody in jail. And I really think that what’s happening now is going to allow the cannabis plant to set itself free. And when we set the cannabis plant free, we also set ourselves free from all this domination from these mega rich individuals.
And here’s what people have to understand. These big-money types they control our governments, our governments in turn control the medical system, the legal system and practically everything else in our lives. And they’re all bought and paid for. They’re not working for the people any longer and I don’t think they ever have. When you read the wonderful documents like the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, well these were all written by… Many of these people that wrote these documents used cannabis a great deal. And it is a pretty well known fact. And if you look at the wording of these documents, that’s all you have to do is read it and understand it. But what they’ve done, they basically they shredded the Constitution and really I’ve said right along, I think the last President we had, the last real president in the United States of America; I think his name was Kennedy. The rest of them… What followed after him was nothing but trash.
