Rick Simpson became famous in the cannabis community completely by accident. Rick Simpson was an engineer working around all sorts of dangerous toxic fumes which caused him to suffer from dizzy spells and ringing in his ears. He was prescribed medications that made his symptoms worse. As a result he asked his doctor about using Marijuana after watching a documentary called Highlighting. Highlighting is about the positive benefits of using marijuana for medical relief.
Simpson inquired about medical cannabis to his doctor and his doctor refused to consider it. He ended up getting the marijuana using his own recourses and notices a significant difference in his tinnitus and other symptoms. Three years later Simpson discovered cancerous bumps on his arm. Simpson had read about how THC fights cancer cells and decided to topically apply cannabis oil to the bumps and wrap them with bandages. After 3 days, he removed the bandages and the cancerous growth disappeared.
From then he began to cultivate the oil and offer it free of charge to anyone in need. He helped more than 5,000 people with his oil. It was one of the first concentration methods and it is very like alcohol extraction. When Rick Simpson started making his oil he used some very toxic solvent including naphtha, a petroleum distillate. Simpson claimed that he could remove the toxic substances completely. However, it is a very difficult process without a chemist’s oversight.
