Cannabis for Uveitis

Uveitis is the inflammation of the middle area of the eye, called the uvea or uveal tract. Uveitis can cause irritation, pain and changes to your vision. Uveitis can lead to further problems like cataracts and glaucoma.

Due to CBD’s anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, it could help treat uveitis and related problems such as glaucoma. CBD may work by blocking the processes “initiated and sustained by oxidative stress and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activation.”
