Using Cannabis to Treat Glaucoma

Glaucoma refers to multiple eye conditions that reduce a person's field of vision and can even lead to blindness. The reason behind this is that Glaucoma patients have built up eye pressure which damages the optic nerve. Current research suggests smoking cannabis can reduce eye-pressure, and therefore prevent further damage to the optic nerve. However, if pressure is reduced too much, it can prevent blood flow to the optic nerve and no longer be beneficial.
