||The treatment of glaucoma using a non-psychoactive preparation of cannabis sativa|
||West Indian med. j;27(1):16-25, Mar. 1978.
||A non-psychotropic, ophthalmic preparation from cannabis sativa produced a significant fall in intraocular pressure both in the dog and in glaucoma patients. The preparation is non-toxic and compared favourably with pilocarpine in the dog. It is concluded, from our observations, that cannabis sativa contains an active principle which is non-psychotic and which has a significant effect in lowering the intraocular pressure (AU)|
