Pregnant? Do Not Use Cannabis.
Anything that gets into the system of an expectant mother can potentially cross the placenta and get into the baby. THC and the other chemicals that makeup the marijuana plant are no different, and can have adverse effects on an un-born child. Sleep patterns, memory, intelligence and behaviour have all be shown to be negatively affected in children exposed to pot in utero. Other risks include low birth weight, premature birth, and anemia. These risks apply whether smoking, or consuming an edible, and can continue after birth during the breast-feeding phase as well.
