Rick Simpson hemp oil contains very high levels of THC and other cannabinoids. It is not possible to legally obtain the oil. However, Simpson's organization provides information about how people can produce the oil themselves, according to zamnesia.com..
After Rick Simpson created a hemp oil that successfully treated his own maladies, he began to distribute it to other people free of charge as a possible cure for cancer and other ailments. In 2007, however, he was convicted of drug charges in his native Canada in connection with this work, according to an article in High Times.
The oil that Simpson created is made from strains of hemp containing about 50 to 60 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and 10 to 15 percent cannabidiol (CBD), along with concentrated amounts of other cannabinoids, says the zamnesia web site.
Simpson's organization, phoenixtears.ca, has documented the process of making the oil, allowing anyone to produce it who is willing to assume the risk of getting into trouble with the police in the jurisdictions where he lives. On its web site, the organization supplies information about how to make the oil, how the oil works and what dosages to take. The website also contains testimonials.
Other websites, such as zamnesia and Blue Bird Botanicals, sell a product known as CPD oil,
However, CPD oil is not the same product as Rick Simpson oil, according to zamnesia. CPD oil is made from different strains of hemp and does not contain the same high levels of cannabinoids.
