Should ophtalmologists recommend medical cannabis to patients with glaucoma?

Cannabis has been widely used for various medical purposes since before year 2000 BC. Its effects are mediated by cannabinoids and stimulation of mainly G-protein coupled cannabinoid receptors. In 1971, subjects who smoked marihuana, showed a decrease in the intraocular pressure.

The aim of this review is to provide an overview of the potential use of cannabinoids in the treatment of glaucoma.
