Cannabis and your eyes
« on: May 22, 2019, 05:16:31 PM »
Can anyone please share how cannabis has affected your eyes?
Has it helped any with eye inflammation or dryness?

I'm specifically asking about taking it through means other than smoking
(such as oil, edibles, pill form...)
since of course smoking in itself can dry you out.

THANKS!  :)

Sharon,

I have not noticed the MM affecting my eyes in any way (less or more dry). My eyes are not as affected as others. I still just take the same amount of Restasis.


Take care.

MM does make my eyes slightly worse. I take it using a vape pen, as that is the form I can best afford.

I only use it when my symptoms are bad, so not every day.

Thanks Gorn, may I ask which symptoms it helps you most with?

CBD-oil capsules (10 mg) made all my Sjogren's symptoms worse (eyes, mouth, constipation). Beneficial effect: improved sleep & seemed to stabilize my weight (maybe even a slight weight loss).

Oh no...that's really good to know Maria, thanks!
Have you ever tried rubbing CBD oil on your eyelids?

No haven't tried that option yet Sharon. Did you try it yet?

But if it works I'll try it out tonight.....  I'll substitute it for my daily progesterone & testosterone eye lid rub.

Hi Maria, I don't have the possibility to try this idea since you need a license for MM to try CBD in my country.  :-\
