Cannabis as a Medicine An Informal Talk with Sean Devlin, DO, HMD

SAN JUAN RIDGE, Calif. August 17, 2013. Sean Devlin, DO, HMD gave a presentation on “Medical Marijuana—Alternative Solutions to Common Health Issues” at the 2013 Ridgestock event. Dr. Devlin comes to medical practice through extensive studies in pharmacology research and is a partner at Highland Springs Wellness Center in Grass Valley and also a medical consultant at Sierra Integrative Medical Center in Reno, Nevada.

Dr. Devlin began his talk by noting a recent news event: Weed with Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN has reversed his 2009 position against marijuana and now recognizes the medical benefits of cannabis. Furthermore, recent changes in laws, such as the legalization of marijuana in Colorado and Washington have allowed for recreational use of marijuana by de-criminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana.

Dr. Devlin’s own research suggests that Israel and other countries now lead the way in doing basic scientific research in the broad effects and medical benefits of cannabis, of which over 100 have already been identified. In fact, Devlin cites marijuana has been used medically for nearly 5,000 years. The oldest marijuana was found in the remains of a shamanic healer in India.

American history indicates that physicians in the United States, used marijuana regularly until the 1930′s, for everything from menstrual cramps to toothaches.

During the 20th century, alcohol became illegal, which resulted in illegal bootlegging. The federal government ended prohibition of alcohol and shifted its attention to cannabis. This began with the marijuana tax act, then the outright ban of cannabis as it became a crime to possess or use cannabis.

According to Devlin, the tide for marijuana in the medical arena began to shift again in the mid 1990′s, when California passed a law allowing for the medical use of marijuana. Much of the lobbying for change included patients suffering from HIV/AIDS and cancer—both areas where he has expertise.

Currently approximately 20 states have developed medical marijuana laws that allow patients to access cannabis for medical purposes.

As a physician, Devlin recommends the responsible use of marijuana for a variety of conditions. Unfortunately, cannabis is a Schedule 1 drug and cannot be prescribed. Much debate exists with respect to this classification, which prevents marijuana’s use except for very specific and well-controlled research projects.

Devlin is reflective and grateful for his opportunity to work with patients at Highland Springs Wellness Center in Grass Valley for the past 8 years and at Sierra Integrative Medical Center for the past 3 years. In these roles, Devlin has treated a variety of conditions including, chronic pain, anxiety, nausea/vomiting, anorexia, poor appetite and cancer.

Devlin has been amazed at how effective cannabis has been for dealing with a variety of medical conditions. He has been able to reduce patient’s use of traditional pharmaceuticals, specific opiates and anxiolytics (for pain and anxiety).

Case studies and clinical evidence has shown that increased CBD and reduced THC cannabis extract has successfully treated children suffering from Dravets syndrome and is used in chemotherapy in the treatment of cancer. It has also been used in Israel. along with chemotherapy in the treatment of cancer. In Canada, a gentleman used an extract of cannabis to treat his mesothelioma and created what has now been is now called Phoenix Tears.

Devlin sees more cases of CBD’s treating coming to light every week. This once maligned weed may prove revolutionary over the next 5-10 years as more data is gathered and research completed.

Halent Labs has conducted the most comprehensive research to date and is available at halent.com.

From the Desk of Sean Devlin, DO

The use of medicinal cannabis by inhalation has been very controversial, the old adage has been if you smoke it you are at increased risk of pulmonary disease and possibly cancer.  As time goes by and more studies are performed we are starting to see other evidence which may indicate that cannabis may in fact reduce risks of developing some cancers as well not be as harmful as smoking cigarettes.  Obviously with any substance used for medicinal purposes we have our intended positive effects and our negative or untoward ‘side-effects’.  We always recommend that if patients choose to use medicinal cannabis they do so with caution and are encouraged to vaporize the cannabis if they do inhale.  This following study provides us with another little insight into this amazingly versatile plant—

Medicinal Cannabis Research

This video shows what I believe to be a small sampling of physicians and scientists who are taking another deeper look into using cannabis medicinally and nutritionally, both as a directed treatment and for disease prevention approaches. This is a plant which has been used for centuries in its entirety for everything, from making clothing to treating illness.
As you can see from this video many folks are looking at the future potential of this plant in a variety of medical arenas, without the traditional stereotypical view of this plant.
