Treating Glaucoma with THC Cannabis Oil

This treatment guideline is to be used for products, cannabis oils, that are only endorsed by Medical Cannabis Dispensary. Tinctures can be used for treating Glaucoma.

Most of the people we treat choose the cannabis oils we endorse over conventional western medicines that have let them down. No one wants to get high. If the oils are used correctly this can be avoided altogether.

STORAGE OF CANNABIS OILS

Cannabis oils are best kept in the fridge when not being used. If this is not possible, store in a cool dry dark cupboard. The oils have a shelf life of many years.

DIRECTION FOR USE

For dosing using a tincture, do not dilute in water or juice. It’s easiest to accurately dispense the drops from a tincture into a teaspoon and then consume. Otherwise drop directly into your mouth.

THC Oil (Delta 9)

For Glaucoma you need THC and unfortunately
 THC can make one ‘high’. However, if you micro-dose using a 
tincture in drops, it will allow you to build up a tolerance over a
 short period of time (days). This will enable you to take the necessary 
dosages to deal with the pain. There is no one-size-fits-all
 approach with THC cannabis oil dosing – it’s different for everyone. For
 most people 5 (10mg) drops per dosing is sufficient. Most, if not all 
people we help, have to get on with day-to-day life and can’t afford to be high.

The medical cannabis THC strain used in the THC products MCD endorses is a 12:1 strain (THC to CBD).

Dosage: Start on lowest recommended dosage, 2 drops, to be safe, and increase as you feel comfortable until the desire effect is reached. If you feel “high” or abnormal, decrease dosage and remain on same dosage for 72 hours before increasing it again. Dosing twice daily, morning and evening is normally sufficient.

Recommended treatment:

We recommend using a tincture, with starting dosage of:

  • THC: 2-5 drops – 2-3 times a day. (Start on 2 drops 2-3x a day. Increase every 48-72 hours by 1 drop per dosing. You can carry on increasing as need be. This way one avoids getting high.)

Tinctures (1:10) are 1000mg of cannabinoid extract in 10ml MCT, 500+ drops per bottle (dropper top bottle). Each drop is 2mg.

MCD is unable to comment on “other” cannabis oils whose origins are unbeknown to us. We recommend reading about cannabis oil in South Africa before making any decisions.

WHAT DETERMINES THE QUALITY OF CANNABIS OIL

MCD endorsed cannabis oils are all made from medical grade organic cannabis (flowers) only. The oils are processed in laboratory conditions using the latest technology similar, if not the same, equipment used in the legal states of America. Co2 based extraction cannabis oil is the latest, cleanest, toxin (solvent) free and most expensive extraction technique requiring specialised machinery. The entire process from soil to oil is controlled, after all what you put in is what you get out. The oils are not lab tested.

Side Effects

Everyone’s tolerance varies, rather be safe than sorry. Start low and increase dosages until desired dosage is reach. This way one avoids getting high altogether. If too much THC, THCA, CBN oil is consumed too quickly  a “high” or “stoned” feeling could be experienced, a general change in perceptioneuphoria (heightened mood), and an increase in appetite. Short term side effects may include a decrease in short-term memorydry mouth, impaired motor skills, red eyes, and feelings of paranoia or anxiety. In the event of getting high its best to take a nap and sleep it off. The “feeling” will pass.
