Causes of Red Eyes & How to Clear Up Stoned Eyes

Medical marijuana is legal in Arkansas, and you can renew your medical card today with Arkansas Marijuana Card! If you have any questions, give us a call!

The popularity of cannabis has been increasing each year as states move to legalize it entirely. Millions of Americans are making the switch from opioids and narcotics to medical marijuana because of its lack of harsh side effects.

Although marijuana’s side effects are mild, there are still some things you should watch out for. Some of the most common side effects from smoking marijuana include:

  • altered sense of time

  • “the munchies”

  • changes in mood

  • fatigue

  • difficulty with thinking and problem-solving

  • red eyes

Many people report redness in their eyes after smoking, and while it isn’t a serious side effect, it can be annoying. Luckily, there are some ways you can clear them up fairly quickly!

Factors for Redness

Did you know that the higher your tolerance to THC, the less likely your eyes will get red after use? That’s right! People who use marijuana more often will probably not be experiencing redness in their eyes.

Interestingly, THC is also what causes redness in the eyes after using cannabis. So, if you use strains that are lower in THC, you are less likely to experience any redness. CBD-rich strains can also be very helpful!

How to Clear Up Red Eyes

The solution to eye redness is simple! They can usually be cleared up rather quickly and easily with over-the-counter eye drops. Artificial tears work great as well for moistening your eyes, as some marijuana users also experience dryness in their eyes after use.

If eye drops aren’t for you, you can also use a compress. Warm or cold compresses work to aid with blood flow and reduce any discomfort.

You could also start taking a fish oil supplement as it can help with dry eyes which should reduce redness.
