I'm interested in producing Hemp Oil for use with cancer patients.I've been inspired by Nova Scotia's Rick Simpsons' hemp oil research with different types of cancer.Skin cancer runs rampant through my family(amber haired,fair skinned,and green/blue eyes)And if this works as a toppical agent,It's the breakthrough everyone has been waiting for!!!

SO EVERYONE JOIN IN AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE CAUSE...


I've got Isopropyl Acohol 91% and I've picked up a 2 qt slowcooker to act as an evaporator for the acohol.(Acohol evaporates at 170*)
I've got to start small so I plan on using a 1 gl bucket to mix budds/stems/leaves/acohol into.
CAN YOU USE ALL LEAVES ARE JUST THE STICKY BUDD LEAVES???
HOW LONG SHOULD THESE DWELL IN THE ACOHOL???
I know you have to use a coffee filter to strain the brine through and then cook down the liquid into a thick paste.I plan to use the slow cooker as a hot water bath to create the acohol evaporation from the liquid. I will strain liquid into small glass jar, immerse the jar into the hot water and distill off the acohol.
CAN IT BE THIS EASY???
WHAT AM I LEAVING OUT???

I found all the info needed on RICK SIMPSON'S site
SO HERE IT IS:

Starting material:
I generally work with a pound or more of good grade hemp starting material. You can use just one ounce. An ounce will usually produce 3 or 4 grams of oil. The amount of oil produced per ounce of hemp will vary from strain to strain, but it all has that wonderful healing power.
1 - Place the completely dry starting material in a plastic bucket.
2 - Dampen the material with the solvent you are using. Many solvents can be used. I like to use pure naphtha but it costs $500 for a 45-gallon drum. You can use 99% isopropyl alcohol, which you can find in your local drug stores. Alcohol absorbs more chlorophyll from the plant material than naphtha does. This gives oils made with alcohol a darker colour but does not diminish the potency of the oil to any noticeable degree. Ether, naphtha or butane and many other solvents can produce oils that are amber and transparent. Granted these clear oils do look better but dark oil can be just as potent. If the process is done properly, little or no solvent residue is left in the oil. I have been consuming oils produced using different solvents for eight years with no harmful effects. You will require about two gallons of solvent to strip the THC off one pound of dry starting material. 500 milliliters of solvent should be more than enough to strip the THC from one ounce of hemp starting material.
3 - Crush the plant material using a stick of clean untreated (chemical free) wood or some such device. Even though the starting material has been dampened with the solvent, you will find that the material can be readily crushed.
4 - Add solvent until the starting material is completely covered.
Use the stick to work the plant material. As you are doing this, the THC dissolves off the plant material into the solvent.
5 - Continue this process for about 3 minutes.
6 - Pour the solvent-oil mix off the plant material into another bucket. You have just stripped the plant material of about 80% of its THC.
7 - Second wash - again add solvent to the plant material and work it for another 3 minutes to get the other 20%.
8 - Pour this solvent-oil mix into the bucket containing the first mix that was poured off previously.
9 - Discard the twice-washed plant material.
10- Pour the solvent-oil mix through a coffee filter into a clean container.
11- Boil the solvent off. I have found that a rice cooker will do this boil off very nicely. The one I have has two heat settings - high and low - and will hold over a half gallon (2.5 liters) of solvent-oil mix.
12- Add solvent-oil mix to the rice cooker until it is about full.



  • Make sure you are in a very well ventilated area and set up a fan to carry the solvent fumes away. The fumes are very flammable. Be sure to stay away from red-hot elements, sparks, cigarettes etc. that could ignite the fumes.

13- Plug the rice cooker in and set it on high heat.
14- Continue adding solvent-oil mix as the level in the rice cooker decreases until it is all in the cooker.
15- Add a few drops of water to the solvent-oil mix as the level comes down for the last time. The amount of water added depends on how much starting material you had in the beginning. If I am producing oil from a pound of good bud, I usually add about ten drops of water.
16- When there is about one inch of solvent-oil-water mix left in the cooker, put on your oven mitts, pick the unit up and gently swirl the contents
17- Continue swirling until the solvent has been evaporated off. The few drops of water help release the solvent residue and protect the oil somewhat from too much heat. When the solvent has been boiled off, the cooker that I use automatically goes to low heat. This avoids any danger of overheating the oil. At no time should the temperature of the oil go over 290F degrees (140 C).
18- Put on your oven mitts and remove the pot containing the oil from the rice cooker.
19- Gently pour the oil into a small stainless steel container.
20- Place this container in a dehydrator or put in on a gentle heating device such as a coffee warmer. It may take a few hours but the water and volatile turpines will be evaporated from the oil. When there is no longer any activity on the surface of the oil the medicine is ready for use.
21- Pour the hot oil into a bottle; or as in the video suck it up into a plastic syringe. Putting the oil in a plastic syringe makes it very easy to dispense the medicine.
When the oil cools off it has the consistency of thick grease. Some strains will produce very thick oil and you may have trouble squeezing it out of the syringe. If this happens, place the syringe in warm water a few minutes prior to use.
To anyone starting to use hemp oil as a medication, here are some simple facts.
Hemp oil will lower blood pressure and if you are on blood pressure medication, you may find that this medication is no longer needed. The same is true for diabetics. I have seen hemp oil control blood sugar to the extent that insulin was no longer needed.
I am not a doctor and I do not have the right to tell people what they should do. Personally, I would not consider taking any cancer treatments currently in use by our medical system, I do not recommend that hemp oil be taken along with chemotherapy. What would be the sense of making your own cure and then allowing the medical system to give you massive doses of poison?
From my experience with hemp medicine, I have found that most pharmaceutical medications are no longer needed once a person starts using hemp oil. Hemp oil seems to mix well with most natural medications but I have had a few reports from people trying to take hemp oil and pharmaceuticals who experienced stomach pain etc. All problems ceased when they stopped taking the prescription drugs.
To anyone who is going to act on this information to help a loved one, I welcome you to the world of real medicine. Again, I caution you to be very careful when boiling the solvent off. The fumes are very flammable. Be sure to stay away from red-hot elements, sparks, cigarettes etc. that could ignite the fumes.

I wish you the best luck and health.
Warmest regards,
Rick Simpson.

Isopropyl Acohol 91%? So it doesn't have to be 99 percent? Could one use 70 percent? 99 percent is not easy to find, let me tell you. Anybody have any insight, 91 percent, 99 percent??

Use Ever Clear Grain alcohol 95% pure alcohol, this means it's 5% water and to boil of water it has to get hotter then 212* to boil off

Peace
and
Good Luck

I cannot get that here. I also have not been able to get any kind of alcohol (just called alcohol) here. I will have to use something else. Peace

People who distill their own alcohol (like I do) could use pure 190 proof (95%) vodka of their making for making oil.

Unfortunately, where I live, they only sell isopropyl 70%. You can't buy anything else. That's why I make my own vodka.

if you have the time get a metal pipe with two end caps drill a hole big enough to fit a butane canisters nozzel into to make it spray in the pipe. drill multiple small holes in other end fill with stickyness spray butane let drip out into recepticle. butane freezes trichomes carries them out butane boils at room temperature all your left with is pure hemp oil. saftey is key with this dont use a continuous spray do it in three to five second bursts. NO SMOKEING you in effect have a pipe bomb in your hand. so be careful if you use this method

In Canada you can buy alcohol from the liquor store, which I did, it was 42 bucks per 26 oz. and it is strongest they have is 90 proof. Expensive! This is drinking alcohol. I would love to see your still Gord. I would also like to see someone post how to make one for this process. To reclaim the solvent. I have been hunting on the web but have not found a lot. I don't think I am typing in the right search words. Peace

Isopropyl alcohol is oxidized by the liver into acetone by alcohol dehydrogenase. Symptoms of isopropyl alcohol poisoning include flushing, headache, dizziness, CNS depression, nausea, vomiting, anesthesia, and coma. Use in well-ventilated areas and use protective gloves while using. Poisoning can occur from ingestion, inhalation, or absorption.


ISO turns into acetone in your liver.

Interestingly, acetone has been shown to have anticonvulsant effects in animal models of epilepsy, in the absence of toxicity, when administered in millimolar concentrations.[17] It has been hypothesized that the high-fat low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet used clinically to control drug-resistant epilepsy in children works by elevating acetone in the brain.[17]

I also found at Cosco 99% pure iso alcohol. they sell it in 4 bottle lots and I don't think they would look twice at you if you bought more than one. Peace

ok people,, all this isnt necessary! go to everyonedoesit.com and buy a honey bee extractor.. or you can make one very easily.. this takes your weed and makes oil out of it using butane lighter fluid.. ive been making oil for a while and this is easy and quick,, im usually smoking my oil withing an hour or starting the process.

So, how many cases of butane do I need for a pound of herb? You really think that's easier than two gallons of ISO? Please, define "easily" in the sense that you used it in your post. I don't think you can "easily" use butane to process a pound of herb. But, hey, maybe I'm wrong. I am waiting to be amazed. :wink:

Is there a broken down version of the process? There is just no way I will be able to get a pound unless I can get people to chip in on it. I was just wondering if there was instructions on making the oil if I only had a couple ounces

if you have a couple of ounces,, try my way.. that was my point to begin with ,, most people do not have a pound of weed laying around so to use an extractor would be the easiest way for me,, mine works great!
