Human-eye cells studied under the microscope showed a a retina filled with “quite significant” cannabinoid receptors, according to scientists from the University of California School of Medicine.
The CB1 receptors were also found in the front of the eye.
“Localization of Cannabinoid CB1 Receptors in the Human Anterior Eye and Retina” was published in Physiology and Pharmacology, September 1999.
Seventeen years later, (Nov 10, 2015) an article in Neural Plasticity presented the findings of a group of Canadian researchers from Dalhousie University who did a systematic review of scientific research about the link between eye disease and the endocannabinoid system.
They concluded that: “Increasing evidence suggests that modulation of the endocannabinoid system may show potential for the treatment of glaucoma.”
Early evidence of the potential of cannabis to improve eyesight came from Jamaica. https://wp.me/pa0u7F-ci
