A Recipe To Make Cannabis Oil For A Chemotherapy Alternative

Health

  3:51 AM  


by Arjun Walia
Collective Evolution

Awareness with regards to cannabis as a treatment and potential cure for cancer has been rapidly increasing over the past few years. Several studies over the last decade have clearly (without question) demonstrated the anti-tumoral effects of the plant. Cannabinoids (any group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis) activate cannabinoid receptors in the body. The human body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids and they play a very important role in many processes within the body to help create a healthy environment.

Since radiation and chemotherapy are the only two approved treatments for cancer, it’s important to let people know that other options do exist. There’s nothing wrong with exploring these options and finding out more information about them so people can make the best possible choice for themselves. It’s always important to do your own research.

A number of people have used this treatment to help treat their cancer. The latest article we wrote is a great example (amongst many), where a 9-year-old girl used cannabis to cure her cancer. You can read more about that HERE.


As more become aware of the healing power that this plant has, the next question to be asked is how is it used? Linked above (second from the top) is an article titled “Teenage Girl Uses Cannabis To Treat Leukaemia & Great Results Were Seen,” you can click on the case study embedded within the article and email the doctors, hopefully they can answer your questions if it is an emergency.

The article highlighted in the second paragraph about the 9-year-old girl who used cannabis to treat her cancer has a link to her website. Click HERE to go there. It goes through all the steps they took, they titled it “Making Medical Marijuana 101.”

So, you can start there. Another option that seems to be quite popular is Rick Simpson’s Hemp Oil. He is a medical marijuana activist who has been providing people with information about the healing potentials of Hemp Oil medications for quite some time. His inspiration came from his own experience when he cured himself of a metastatic skin cancer in 2003.

Again, I just want to help others further their research on how to do it. You can try contacting the doctors mentioned in the paragraph above, you can take a look at the way 9-year-old Mykyala (also mentioned in above paragraphs) did it and you can check out Rick Simpson’s way. Hopefully this will lead you to what you are looking for. Feel free to also contact me with any questions or concerns.

Here is Rick Simpson’s Hash Oil Recipe:

(HERE is his website)

To make Rick Simpson’s hash oil, start with one ounce of dried herb. One ounce will typically produce 3-4 grams of oil, although the amount of oil produced per ounce will vary strain to strain. A pound of dried material will yield about two ounces of high quality oil.

IMPORTANT: These instructions are directly summarized from Rick Simpson’s website. Be VERY careful when boiling solvent off [solvent-free option], the flames are extremely flammable. AVOID smoking, sparks, stove-tops and red hot heating elements. Set up a fan to blow fumes away from the pot, and set up in a well-ventilated area for whole process.

1. Place the completely dry material in a plastic bucket.

2. Dampen the material with the solvent you are using. Many solvents can be used [solvent-free option]. You can use pure naphtha, ether, butane, 99% isopropyl alcohol, or even water. Two gallons of solvent is required to extract the THC from one pound, and 500 ml is enough for an ounce.

3. Crush the plant material using a stick of clean, untreated wood or any other similar device. Although the material will be damp, it will still be relatively easy to crush up because it is so dry.

4. Continue to crush the material with the stick, while adding solvent until the plant material is completely covered and soaked. Remain stirring the mixture for about three minutes. As you do this, the THC is dissolved off the material into the solvent.

5. Pour the solvent oil mixture off the plant material into another bucket. At this point you have stripped the material of about 80% of its THC.

6. Second wash: again add solvent to the mixture and work for another three minutes to extract the remaining THC.

7. Pour this solvent oil mix into the bucket containing the first mix that was previously poured out.

8. Discard the twice washed plant material.

9. Pour the solvent oil mixture through a coffee filter into a clean container.

10. Boil the solvent off: a rice cooker will boil the solvent off nicely, and will hold over a half gallon of solvent mixture. CAUTION: avoid stove-tops, red hot elements, sparks, cigarettes and open flames as the fumes are extremely flammable.

11. Add solvent to rice cooker until it is about ¾ full and turn on HIGH heat. Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area and set up a fan to carry the solvent fumes away. Continue to add mixture to cooker as solvent evaporates until you have added it all to the cooker.

12. As the level in the rice cooker decreases for the last time, add a few drops of water (about 10 drops of water for a pound of dry material). This will help to release the solvent residue, and protect the oil from too much heat.

13. When there is about one inch of solvent-water mixture in the rice cooker, put on your oven mitts and pick the unit up and swirl the contents until the solvent has finished boiling off.

14. When the solvent has been boiled off, turn the cooker to LOW heat. At no point should the oil ever reach over 290˚ F or 140˚ C.

15. Keep your oven mitts on and remove the pot containing the oil from the rice cooker. Gently pour the oil into a stainless steel container

16. Place the stainless steel container in a dehydrator, or put it on a gentle heating device such as a coffee warmer. It may take a few hours but the water and volatile terpenes will be evaporated from the oil. When there is no longer any surface activity on the oil, it is ready for use.

17. Suck the oil up in a plastic syringe, or in any other container you see fit. A syringe will make the oil easy to dispense. When the oil cools completely it will have the consistency of thick grease.

For even further information, check out Rick’s written recipe here.

Weed shortage imminent in Washington state ahead of first legal sales

Legal weed is about to become a reality for residents of Washington state, but onlookers to the experiment-in-waiting say pot enthusiasts can expect one peculiar problem to arise right off the bat.
According to a recent report from the Associated Press, Washington’s Liquor Control Board plans to issue 15 of its first 20 licenses next week to retailers, who will in turn begin being able to sell recreational weed legally starting the following day. Once those dispensaries open for business, Washington will become the second place in the United States where adults will be able to purchase pot without necessarily worrying about breaking any laws.
Randy Simmons, the board's legal-pot project manager, told AP that would-be buyers should expect delays, however.
"Will there be shortages?" Simmons asked the AP during a recent interview. "The answer to that is yes."
Simmons isn’t the only one with dire predictions. Randy Oliver, the chief scientist at one of two labs in Washington where state-regulated marijuana will be tested, told AP that his facility has seen only a fraction of what they expected.
"There's such a small stream of samples coming through," he said. "There's going to be some long lines and some high prices."
On Monday, the AP reported that not only will only two dozen dispensaries be able to open at first, but that just a fraction — 79 of the more than 2,600 interested parties — have been approved to grow marijuana.
In addition to the Analytical 360 in Yakima, WA where Oliver works, state-sanctioned weed can be tested at another certified facility named Confidence Analytics in Seattle. Any testing brought there at this point could cause further delays ahead of next week’s anticipated launch date, however, lending some to fear that the first few days of legal weed in Washington won’t live up to expectations.
"When people start calling we have to tell them we're not going to have anything for them until August," Bob Leeds of growers Sea of Green Farms told AP. "That's a long way off when you're trying to open a business."
When Colorado became the first state in the US to legally sell recreational marijuana on January 1 of this year, unexpected demand caused some complications at dispensaries there. Nevertheless, the sheer magnitude of sales quickly surpassed expectations and is currently expected to bring millions of dollars in tax revenue right to the state.
"Every day that we've been in business since Jan. 1 has been better than my best day of business ever,"Andy Williams, owner of Denver's Medicine Man dispensary, told Huffington Post after his first week in business.
Unlike Washington, however, Colorado didn’t enter the weed game without a head start. The state had years earlier legalized medicinal weed, establishing an infrastructure along the way that allowed for a smoother transition when stores opened at the start of this year to sell weed to adults who lacked a doctor’s note.

Study: Cannabis Could Cure Addiction to Drugs

A new study suggests that cannabinoids may play a crucial role in helping with stimulant addiction.

“A growing number of studies support a critical role of the ECBS and its modulation by synthetic or natural cannabinoids in various neurobiological and behavioral aspects of stimulants addiction.

“Thus, cannabinoids modulate brain reward systems closely involved in stimulants addiction, and provide further evidence that the cannabinoid system could be explored as a potential drug discovery target for treating addiction across different classes of stimulants.” – US Natural Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health [1]


In a study published by the ‘National Institute of Health,’ researchers discovered cannabinoids affect the brain’s reward system, which includes the components of an individual’s brain responsible for determining their behavior displayed and the amount of pleasure they feel in response to a substance, in a manner similar to that of stimulants.

Evidence suggests that the endocannabinoid system (ECBS) produces neurological processes similar to ones present in the brains of individuals suffering from stimulant addictions.

Researchers at ‘The Psychiatry Research Unit at Centre Hospitalier de Montreal’ in Canada claim this discovery opens the door for further exploration regarding the possibility of the cannabinoid system as a “potential drug discovery target for treating addiction across different classes of stimulants.” [1]

It is no secret that methamphetamine addiction only continues to dramatically increase with each passing year, especially in the United States. Although a wealth of diverse research focused on stimulant addiction has been executed over the past few decades, a pharmacological therapy that is able to successfully treat primary symptoms of stimulant addiction withdrawal such as anxiety and cravings, or one that aids in reducing the risk of relapse, has yet to be clearly identified.

Several pharmacological agents have been tested to no avail including antidepressants, anticonvulsants and antipsychotics. However, all hope remains far from lost as evidence continues to surface proving that the endocannabinoid system (ECBS) plays a major role in cognitive and physiological activities related to ones present during stimulant addiction.

Such activities include the “reward” feeling stemming from stimulant abuse, responsiveness to stress and drug induced synaptic plasticity, which relates to the power of brain synapses to strengthen or weaken with time as a result of activity increase or decrease.


The endocannabinoid system’s relation to the brain’s reward system deems it a factor endowed with the potential to possibly be utilized to interfere with, and perhaps halt, the neurological effects seen in those suffering from stimulant addiction.

In relation to relapse, cannabis may lower the risk, as it was also found to effect specific receptors that help reduce the triggers and temptations often prompt recovering addicts to fall from sobriety and use again.

The similarities in how cannabis and stimulants affect the brain’s reward system are unparalleled, pointing to the possibility of the development of future pharmacological therapies derived from cannabis to successfully treat stimulant addiction, due to the fact that the plant is generally well tolerated and non-addictive to the vast majority of the population.

Still, further research must be conducted in order for this exciting and seemingly promising treatment to become a readily available option for addiction sufferers, but the evidence gathered thus far leaves many hopeful that the unveiling of a ground breaking answer to stimulant abuse may lie on a not so distant horizon after all.
