Using cannabis 🍃 for morning sickness 🤢 is becoming more common now that cannabis is becoming legalized.  This past June, results from a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association following over 661,000 women and evaluating outcomes related to cannabis use during pregnancy. . . The researchers found that women who used cannabis products had a pre-term birth rate of 12.0% versus 6.1% among women who did not report using cannabis. Cannabis use was also related to a higher rate of NICU stays and small for gestational age (SGA). Among women who reported use of cannabis but no other substances, the rate of preterm birth was 9.1% compared with 5.9% among women who reported no use of substances.  doi:10.1001/jama.2019.8734. . . Moral of this story: cannabis use appears to increase chances of not-great pregnancy outcomes. . . So these results are based off of one study, and I know there are other clinicians who recommend CBD during pregnancy. I have a list of tips that I lean on for my pregnant and 🤢 clients (link in bio). Anyone have thoughts on cannabis during pregnancy 🤰 ?  I'm trying to learn it all!
