I’m in my mid-fifties and like my dad before me, I have dealt with borderline interocular pressure that is a precursor to glaucoma.
When I was about 16, I had to start going to the eye doctor every six months to keep a read on the eye pressure.
Funny thing though, when I was in college, my eye pressure dropped dramatically. That has everything to do with the fact that I was using cannabis flower products regularly. While medical marijuana was still a long way away, I knew that cannabis products were helping my eye pressure. Even back then, there were some studies that indicated cannabis products could have some effect on interocular eye pressure. But for me, it was remarkable. Until I got a job where I was drug tested randomly and had to stop the cannabis products use did my eye pressure begin to rise once again. Fortunately, I now live in a state where medical marijuana is legal. Once I figured out how to get a medical marijuana card, I then started going to the legal weed shop. There I met staff members who were really expert in cannabis products. I told them about my borderline glaucoma and that I still wanted to treat it naturally with medical marijuana. They new just what cannabis flower product to go to in order to make that happen. Granted, a lot has changed in treating glaucoma since I was in my teens and twenties. But the fact of the matter remains that if I can advance my eye health with medical cannabis, then that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
