How CBD and CBG May Improve Symptoms Associated With Glaucoma

Posted by Janna Champagne,RN on

Glaucoma is a common eye disease, affecting three Million in the US. Glaucoma causes pressure and inflammation in the eyes which can, over time, damage the optic nerve, leading to partial or complete blindness

How CBD May Help Glaucoma

CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, which may help protect or slow damage to the eyes. In one study, CBD resulted in lowered eye inflammation and pressure. While CBD should be taken along with other interventions to help reduce eye pressure, research supports it may be a useful add-on therapy.

Another cannabinoid found in hemp that may be useful for treating glaucoma is cannabigerol, or CBG. Unlike CBD, research supports that CBG actually reduces pressure in the eyes significantly with regular use, and may reduce reliance on pharmaceutical targeting Glaucoma. CBG, like CBD, is an anti-inflammatory compound and also helps to prevent the body from breaking down its own cannabinoids, further promoting correction of the underlying imbalances found in those who suffer from Glaucoma.

If you have questions about the use of CBD or CBG for Glaucoma, please contact our Live Nurse.
