Glaucoma is a honestly debated topic when it comes to medical weed, then my Grandma suffers from it & read one article online about medical cannabis & is saying she has to have it, and i have done some further research & I say no to medical weed & glaucoma relief, however so there are many clinical studies that have found that cannabinoids can reduce intraocular pressure (IOP), then apparently marijuana can work just & most conventional glaucoma medications to reduce eye pressure, then you can take an edible, smoke cannabis oil or flower & even though it is not directly on the eye, it can do the trick.
So that is what our Grandma has read & she wants medical weed because of it. I have researched further & read that cannabis can decrease eye pressure, however it also reduces your blood pressure which on an older woman is dangerous, when not taken respectfully you can even go blind in your efforts, and the general consensus across the board with doctors is to stay away from medical cannabis when it comes to glaucoma. There are some fantastic things that come with it, however not enough. The cons vastly outweigh the pros. My Grandma isn’t too cheerful about what I have found online. I know she wants to try it. I am half tempted to bake a batch of brownies & just say there is weed in them. Would she legitimately be able to tell the difference? She has never smoked or tried cannabis before. I suppose I could do the placebo effect easily.
