Cannabis Treatments for Glaucoma
GlauCanna is a R&D venture funded by Mentor Capital, Inc. (OTCQX: MNTR), driven to support the development of treatments for individuals suffering from glaucoma. Through clinical trials, this venture aims to scientifically record the positive outcomes that patients have experienced when their glaucoma condition is treated with cannabis oil, which has been shown to reduce intraocular pressure and the disease’s painful symptoms. This research is derived from clinical trials and by engaging with experts who have been life-long champions of care, such as Dr. Mandelkorn. Combined with Mentor Capital’s funding, this venture aims to create a realistic pathway for change and discoveries in the glaucoma field and in the medical marijuana sector.
One of the first steps in this research will be the development of a dose response curve that can be used to standardize the relationship between cannabis oil dosages and the reduction of intraocular pressure. The hope is that this curve will inform future glaucoma endeavors for years to come.
Dr. Mandelkorn has already observed a 40% reduction in intraocular pressure. His observation shows that the treatment already has the potential to bring the human eye back into the normal range of intraocular pressure to provide considerable relief to the patients who had already saturated their existing medication.
If you would like to be part of GlauCanna's clinical trial please contact Dr. Mandelkorn at his Fort Myers or Punta Gorda Office.
