Elevated Intraocular Pressure

Medical Marijuana and Elevated Intraocular Pressure

The idea that medical marijuana can be effective in treating eye conditions dates way back to the early 1970’s and is backed up by studies that were conducted. Studies showed smoking marijuana would have positive effects in trying to lower the IOP levels of people who suffer from an eye condition such as glaucoma. When marijuana is smoked or whenever a form of its active ingredient is taken, it is capable of effectively lowering a patient’s IOP levels. Due to marijuana’s lowering of a patient’s IOP levels, you would need to smoke marijuana six to eight times a day around the clock to receive the benefit of a consistently lowered IOP levels to clear vision.
