Medicinal cannabis to help with glaucoma

How cannabis can help with glaucoma is thought to be through its most abundant cannabinoid, THC. Glaucoma, a disease that causes Intraocular Pressure (IOP), is one of the first medical disorders for which the beneficial properties of cannabis where studied, dating back to 1971. So far, these studies have shown that THC can help to reduce the pressure on the optic nerve and retina (which is the predominant symptom with IOP) as well as providing neuro- and anti-inflammatory protection, reducing the risk of damage to these part of the human eye.
