About Carol's Oil
Sharon has been involved in the study and use of cannabis medicine for 11 years, which started after her sister was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After fighting the disease for three years, using every possible medical service available in South Africa, Carol passed away at a young age.
Shaken by this and with her family in turmoil, Sharon started looking for a different solution for cancer. Little did she know this determined journey would change her life forever….With her background in product development and the desire to discover something that treats cancer, she started her research and soon came upon Rick Simpson. According to him, cannabis can cure cancer, which she believed was very highly unlikely. After speaking to her new scientist friend about this brand new concept, she was told to look into endocannabinoids.
“Well, I was blown away,” explains Price.
She had discovered that we actually have a system in our body called the endocannabinoid system which naturally produces molecules called endocannabinoids. This system was also known to completely blueprint the 83 cannabinoids known to exist in the plant itself at the time.
“There were too many co-incidences. I went down that rabbit-hole, quite frantically, just because of the impact my sister’s death had on our family. We were quite petrified as a family not knowing who would be next.”
She soon realised that medicinal cannabis is very good for our bodies.
This plant is many, many medicines in one. With uses ranging from medicine for a whole range of illnesses, to fuel, clothing, food, super-foods, paper and textiles; there can be no denying the immensely valuable properties of cannabis.
With so many medical benefits, Sharon discovered different strains and what these strains are best used for.
As Sharon’s research progressed, she realised that there were some cannabis strains that can be used for medicine, and some that just won’t work as well. She then went on to identify a range of genetic strains, which were highly effective due to their high cannabinoid and terpene content.
The main difference on the medicinal strains is that they have a good THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) to CBD (cannabidiol) ratio. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis – this is the component of cannabis that makes you “high”, may instigate feelings of anxiousness and paranoia.
THC is also the ingredient that induces four mechanisms in the body which treat cancer and is the actual substance inside the plant that is illegal in most countries. Keep in mind that it also relieves pain, assists with nausea, and stimulates an appetite, is an anti-inflammatory, among many other useful properties.
CBD, on the other hand, has become very popular in medicinal applications due to its non-psychoactive property. CBD is the inverse or opposite molecule to THC – they literally mirror each other – and CBD negates the psychoactive effect of THC as far as it is present in the plant. Hence, the more uplifting or “head high” effect of a Sativa plant and the more relaxing or “body high/couch lock” effect of an Indica dominant plant. In this way, CBD assists with the anxiety induced by THC.
“In my first year of development, after numerous tests I discovered that that the highest level of THC I could get was 7% from a Sativa grown even in the most ideal indoor environment. On testing the oil made with these plants, I found that some of the cannabinoids were in such low percentages that they would not have medicinal use, and some were not even present.”
Sharon has worked with strains like Buddha Cheese, Cannatonic, and Medical Marijuana. Cannatonic seemed to have the better ratio at the time, but a few strains have come and passed over time and they all have different genetics which plays a big role in their properties.
Through all of her research, Sharon made a breakthrough with the use of cannabis as a medicine. Her mother, age 77, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which is one of the most vicious cancers taking the lives of nearly 95% of its victims. After a period of 10 months with the help of cannabis, organic food, super food supplements and the best doctors they could find… her mother was freed from cancer.
She – and many other cancer patients – survived the disease because of Sharon’s development work. Doctors challenged this and ran tests, but found no trace of cancer in her mother’s body anymore.
In January this year, Sharon got a call from her son while she was in George, away from home. Something terrible had happened…
“I had no idea what was going on. I wasn’t actually there. I was in George with patients. My son called me in a state. He told me that two police vans had arrived on the property and they came in with guns, without a search warrant. They said they don’t need one. They actually shot my dog, Isra, who died in my son’s arms in front of my mother, my two-year old grandson and another friend,” recalls Sharon.
“My son was in the line of fire!”
Sharon was told to turn herself in or the family would be arrested.
And she did.
The manner of entry was completely over the top as she does have a certified practice number from the Traditional Doctor’s Union of South Africa and the police did not follow procedure.
The issue in that regard is that the police themselves admitted that they do not have training in handling dogs on the scene, which lead to these actions. The SPCA has offered to train the SAP officers for free in how to deal with animals in cases like these.
Sharon was refused the option of laying a charge at the Grootbrak Police Station due to an internal investigation being conducted by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate.
“Right now, the case has been remanded for 26 April for final investigation on the police’s part, and my attorneys have asked for all relevant investigative documents. That’s where we are in the case. Very few trees were found – 6 cuttings and another 8 plants varying in sizes, but all medical. I challenged them to test the plants…
“The bullet is through the window in this country. It’s no longer just Rastas or a bunch of naughty teenagers that are walking the spot.
There are old people, young people, lawyers, doctors, policemen, magistrates, politicians, and many more using this plant for myriad diseases.”
There are so many people today that are trying to get hold of this medicine and many are referred to oil makers and growers,
who do not have the knowledge to create the best results possible because prohibition makes it very hard to spread the knowledge of the successes.
Most people don’t even know about the amazing results being experienced. Doctors, oncologists and neurologists all over South Africa are referring people to oil makers for treatment.
