Based on various studies that have been conducted, marijuana has some other health benefits, which many people may rarely know. Behind people’s bad assumptions about marijuana and NatreLeaf, it turns out that there are positive sides or benefits for health, such as this one plant that can be used to treat and prevent the eyes from glaucoma. Glaucoma is a disease that increases pressure in the eyeball, damages the optic nerve, and causes a person to lose sight. Based on research conducted by the National Eye Institute in the early 1970s, marijuana can lower intraocular pressure (IOP), aka eyeball pressure, in people with normal pressure and people with glaucoma. This effect can slow down the process of this disease as well as prevent blindness.
Quoted from WebMD, marijuana can be a drug if processed medically. Dustin Sulak, a professor of surgery, researches and manufactures marijuana for medical use. Sulak recommends several types of marijuana for his patients and has had surprising results. When given marijuana, patients who have chronic pain experience improvement from before. Then patients with multiple sclerosis also experienced fewer muscle spasms than before. Patients with severe intestinal inflammation are starting to eat again. This Sulak research is quite strong and adds to the long history of the benefits of marijuana which can be used as a therapeutic drug. But the problem is because it is classified as illegal goods, it is difficult to do further research on the effectiveness of marijuana in the medical world.
