WOW!! Well .. I'm glad you posted your comments.
James Lablanc; former terminal cancer patient. His phone number is near the bottom, if you have any questions for him.
So I guess Mark Emery just didn't look hard enough. And a few others that claim folks like Jim don't exist.
I've talked to Rick a couple of times. Rick worked mostly with white widow. Blueberry is another strain that he worked with. Used horse manure for ferts. Outdoor. Nothing fancy, given that he was giving it all away. The material that he used for extraction had very little trimming done. Again .. giving it all away. Sounds like there was some minor amount of seed production.
Rick can get hot when he feels threatened. Ask him to prove what he's saying and his defenses jump up.
Sooo .. the reporters didn't understand how to talk to him. My guess anyway. But he will talk about such stuff. Did with me when I called him.
Rick has modified his claim of cure rates. He is now claiming a 70% cure rate. I'm glad that he did. Nothing works for every single person. It shouldn't be expected cannabinoids to work 100% of the time either.
The costs of a tour vs the costs of a vacation .. the vacation doesn't include little things like venue location rentals etc.
As for why he doesn't want to go to jail .. are you kidding?
Does he exaggerate? Possibly. But overall I find him to be a honest, good hearted person.
I believe that he greatly oversimplifies what takes place by attributing all of marijuana's curative properties to THC. I think it's much more complex than that. Which means that strain, nutes and growing conditions are much more important than Rick realizes.
Marijuana needs much much more study. It's like the treasure in the movie "The Librarian." The possibilities just go on and on ..
But not just marijuana. Rick needs to be studied also. His entire process from seed to oil. He may have fallen into something very special.
