By now, everyone is aware of how marijuana may help you prevent or treat cancer. To that end, I'd like to bring your attention to a common but popular medical cannabis oil protocol that many people use to treat their cancer. It’s called Rick Simpson Oil (also known as RSO).
Full disclosure, I’m completely in favor of the cannabis oil itself, as it helped me and my wife who suffers from osteo arthritis.
I recently watched some of John Melanca's work in this area, and took in the information that one of Melanca's guest have us during an interview. The guest was Dr. Frankel. After hearing Dr. Frankel's information I strongly suggest that you do NOT use the RSO protocol for reasons I’ll explain below.
If you’re unsure what RSO is or how it’s made, here is the deal.
It’s a variation of cannabis oil where the flower and leaves of Cannabis Indica are combined with a solvent such as isopropyl alcohol, butane, ethanol, or naphtha.
Using these solvents, people create a condensation of oil that has dissolved up to 80% of the THC in the plant. The end result is a very strong THC-based medicine that sadly lacks many of the supporting cannabinoids and terpenes!
This method of extraction is NOT recommended by Dr. Frankel or preferred when trying to treat any forms of cancer.
In addition, the ‘Rick Simpson protocol’ calls for up to a gram of the THC oil per day! If any of you have followed John Melanca during this past year, you will know that MORE is not better when it comes to medical marijuana medication. One gram is WAY too much medicine per dosage.
Not only does Dr. Frankel believe the protocol is flawed, but he believes it may be dangerous and potentially very expensive. The protocol fails to take into account a person’s age, weight, diet, sleep patterns, stage of cancer, or other medications.
There’s also a high likelihood for adverse reactions, including excessive sleepiness and discomfort from the dysphoria when using RSO protocol at such high doses.
For these reasons, Dr. Frankel strongly advises against you trying a Rick Simpson oil protocol for cancer.
Since cannabis oil is not a one-size-fits-all medicine, here are a few suggestions that Dr. Frankel suggests.
Use a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD starting with 1-2 mg per day (remember “start low and go slow”)
Work up to 20-25 mg per dosage 3 times per day with no more than 75 mg per day for most patients
CBD and THC are not the only cancer fighting cannabinoids. CBDa, THCa, and the new up and coming cannabinoid THCV are also beneficial with cancer.
The top three terpenes that also have cancer fighting characteristics: limonene, beta caryophyllene and alpha caryophyllene.

According to the Dominion Post, Mylan’s Morgantown, VA plant is restarting the production of an anti-malaria medication that is under study as a potential treatment for the COVID-19 virus.
The drug is hydroxychloroquine sulfate; the tablets are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of malaria, lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
