ABOUT US – THE STAN RUTNER STORY

We got the OK from his Kaiser Permanente oncologist here in California and we started administering ⅓ of a coconut oil infused cannabis capsule under his tongue at 10:00 am every day. My father made a turnaround in 24 hours; After one week he was off his oxygen machine and eating like a teenager. During this time we had continued our medical education while building our company, United Patients Group. After 6 months of giving my dad ⅓ of the capsule, he said to us, “Maybe I have a chance, maybe I should try the FECO oil.”

We agreed and added one tiny drop of this oil – 4:1 ratio THC:CBD (far less than the industry suggests) under his tongue before bed. He continued to improve day by day. At the 9 month mark, he was cancer-free! It has now been 4 + years and 5 scans later, “No Evidence of Recurring Disease.”
