How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Glaucoma?
Optimal health depends on the body’s internal endocannabinoid system (ECS) which regulates every aspect of wellbeing: inflammation, pain regulation, neuroprotection, immune response, moods, fertility, appetite and energy levels. Cannabinoids can play a vital role in assisting the body with inflammation and neuroprotection, including treating glaucoma. There are cannabinoid receptors in the ocular tissues which manage intraocular pressure. Cannabis oils could target these tissues and help to decrease intraocular pressure and protect the retinal cells. CBD is the ideal therapy for the eyes.
