what is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a condition that causes pressure in the eyes that damage your optic nerve. Glaucoma gets progressively worse over time, and can lead to permanent vision loss. Symptoms may include blurred vision, rainbow auras, severe eye and head pain, nausea, vomiting, or sudden loss of sight.

*Current research does not guarantee that cannabinoids will cure any condition. However, a growing body of ongoing studies does suggest that these cannabinoids could offer treatment potential for a variety of physical and mental conditions.
