Red, bloodshot eyes are a tell-tale sign of being stoned. So why do our eyes turn red when smoking marijuana? Turns out it has little to do with the act of smoking. Grab your eye drops and follow the link to learn more about the culprit of red eyes: https://weedma.ps/RedEyes. After consuming a cannabis-based product (flower, concentrate, edible, etc), users generally experience an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. Lower blood pressure leads to the dilation of blood vessels and capillaries, including ocular capillaries. The dilation of ocular capillaries causes increased blood flow to the eyes, which results in your eyes turning red in the process. The amount your blood pressure is lowered and how red your eyes become depends on the amount of THC you consume. The greater the concentration of THC in a cannabis product, the stronger the effects and the redder your eyes become. So, other than being a dead giveaway that you’ve recently consumed cannabis, you have no reason to be concerned about the redness of your eyes. It’s a completely natural occurrence when smoking cannabis. Can't get enough?
