This is one of the best known benefits of medical marijuana. He has used medical marijuana with remarkable results to treat young patients suffering from drug-resistant epilepsy.

It prevents the development of glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of diseases associated with progressive damage to the optic nerve caused by excessive pressure in the eyeball. It results in reduced visual acuity, and ultimately - irreversible loss of vision. All studies from the last few decades show that smoking "herb" lowers intraocular pressure, thus limiting the direct cause of the development of optic neuropathy. Well-known psychopharmacologist prof. Jerzy Vetulani admitted in one of the interviews that smoking marijuana was recommended by an ophthalmologist - as the only way to stop the deterioration of his eyesight. Unfortunately, the beneficial effects of "cannabis" on the eyes are limited - mainly in time. A 1979 study found that smoking marijuana containing 2.8 percent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the main active ingredient in marijuana), lowers pressure in the eyeball in just 3 to 4 hours. Better results (8–12 hours) were obtained when using drops containing 0.1% THC applied directly to the eyes.

It relieves the symptoms of multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and incurable disease of the central nervous system. It manifests itself, among others motor, sensory, psychiatric disorders and painful muscle cramps. According to a 2009–2012 study by researchers from the Peninsula Medical School in Plymouth, on a group of 500 patients, marijuana may play a role in relieving pain symptoms in MS. Patients exposed to THC in the form of pills tolerated pain better, they also experienced weaker contractions and less muscle stiffness. The administered preparation did not cause any psychoactive effects, because it contained THC in a much lower amount than marijuana. Also, a study by scientists from the University of California on a group of 30 people showed a beneficial effect of "ganja" on the symptoms of MS. Three days of smoking marijuana once a day reduced muscle spasticity (excessive tension) by 30 percent. This effect turned out to be much better than when using traditional drugs.
