What is the status of marijuana use for glaucoma?
What is the status of marijuana use for glaucoma? I highly recommend you review and take heed to precautions outlined in this excellent summary article put out just recently by our national eye academy.. CBD (cannabidiol), the portion of cannabis that does NOT produce a high, actually causes eye pressure to go UP, making glaucoma worse! Smoking marijuana is not recommended for glaucoma therapy, also, because eye pressure lowering effects are not consistent over a 24-hour period as required inglaucoma therapy to help prevent optic nerve damage.. EXCELLENT review article with much info, including THC.
