Can you use these products while pregnant or breastfeeding?

"I’m six months pregnant and have lower back pain. I’d like to try cannabis to see it can help. "


I am not a doctor, but a HelloMD doctor addressed this very question in a previous question:

https://www.hellomd.com/answers/573b68f0676b91000c000177/i-m-10-weeks-pregnant-and-have-morning-sickness-can-marijuana-help-with-the-nausea

To paraphrase Dr. Solomon’s answer, in a University of Adelaide Study "showed that women who use cannabis up to their 20th week of pregnancy have a 5 times higher risk of labor and birth before their 37th week. Of these women, 64% delivered at less then 32 weeks."

Judging by this study which took into account a large control group, it is not advised. You will see a lot of information online to the contrary.

Hope this helps
