Rick Simpson Oil Cures Cancer?... Is it all BS?
Alright, I'm sure this is a topic that has come up before but I need to speak my mind. If your not familiar, Rick Simpson oil was made from a Canadian named, you guessed it, Rick Simpson. He supposedly made his oil and give it away to cancer patients to "cure cancer." He has a video on youtube I believe is called "Running from the Cure." The problem I have with it is I have 2 family members with lung cancer at the moment. My mother swears this stuff cures cancer and she says she knows someone who has cured their skin cancer by applying it to the skin. I feel that this is creating a false hope for her and my family members. I find it hard to believe that something that "cures" cancer would be such a secret for so long. I have searched and searched for documented legitimate cases where it has cured cancer and can't find any anywhere. I found a guy on youtube who was documenting his treatment and did it for a while but there was no progress and he eventually quit posting videos. Not to mention if you know the story of Rick Simpson. He actually got raided and was facing charges at around the time this became public so it sort of makes you wonder if they didn't market it as a Cancer Cure to keep him out of jail, because it worked and he got no charges brought against him even though they took all his growing equipment. It just seems fishy to me. Any thoughts?
it can and will when used properly. cant tell you what is proper for each type of cancer.
And how can you say that for sure? Isn't a "cure" suppose to "cure" everyone of whatever it's suppose to "cure"? So by saying it "cures" cancer they are saying it will "get rid of cancer" period... Chemo is considered a treatment, not a "cure", yet it can "get rid of cancer" for some. I have seen cases where the oil has not worked... so how can it be a "cure". I'm not saying marijuana doesn't have any medicinal purposes or that it doesn't "treat" cancer, but to call it a "cure" angers me with the way my mom talks about. I guess any hope at all is better than none.

Treatment can lead to cure - no one said it will
Well so far it's working for someone I know, no medicine works for everyone, but the Oil has been our only hope and it's working!!!
For many many years we have all known that MJ kills cells (brain cells are always pointed at). With intense studies over the past 10 years we now know that not only does it kill cells, it will attack MUTATED and weak cells first. Cancer cells fall into this category.

Maybe it is somewhere in the middle. I know I wouldn't neglect trying anything my mother was willing to try.
My father and uncle both recently died of cancer (uncle within the last month) and both refused to try any MJ.
Well, I am willing to say, if they could come back and do it over again, they would be using the heck out of cannabis.
I found it especially aggravating that they were just fine with having radiation and morphine injected into them regularly, but OH MY GOD NO WAY WILL I USE MJ! IT IS SOOO BAD!
Our government has really screwed up people.

Did you read my previous post at all? I never said I wasn't down for trying it, Don't put words in my mouth, and if you would have taken the time to comprehend what I said, you would see "Maybe it is somewhere in the middle" is where I feel it's at. I don't doubt that it kills cancer cells and may get rid of some cancer but the problem I have with it is how they call it a cure. To me it can only hurt it's chances of getting out there. For example, that guy who documented his treatment on youtube, I watched his videos every week. It was doing nothing for his cancer and he eventually stopped posting videos. So how does he feel about that Rick Simpsons oil(if he can feel anymore) when someone asks him about that what is he going to say. Probably that it is BS. If it was called a treatment then he could say, well it didn't work for me.

Her BF who was her HS sweetheart and now they are back together decades later, has Lung Cancer really bad, has gone through Chemo and had multiple surgeries and it has gone into remission and come back multiple times. It's like shes 100 % positive that this stuff will heal him and I have my doubts, though I don't tell her that, especially with it being Lung Cancer, skin cancer I wouldn't.
Do doctors tell family members they have a 100 % chance of living when their honest opinion is 75%, No they tell them 50%... You get where I'm coming from?

M420p, why are you so angry over this? Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. Maybe it works for some, not all. I don't think anybody is promising you 100% that it will cure your ill family members but what is the game in trying? The downside is they're out a few thousand bucks for oil. The upside is that they've cured their cancer.
You edited your last post. Now my comments look weird.
OK.... please reread my post. Thank you for stating the obvious...
