Here are a few facts about marijuana use during pregnancy

  So if your reading then your possibly pregnant and love consuming cannabis. Or maybe you are just curious about this topic. Well, today we are going to share some smoking weed while pregnant facts. This is something I saw a few mothers on the cannabis forum wanting to know about. They want to know if they should continue to smoke while weed while they are pregnant. So The Cannabis Wiki decided to investigate, and let you know what we think, by compiling a list of a few facts about marijuana use during pregnancy.

Okay, enough talking here are a few facts about marijuana use during pregnancy

 According to a 2005 survey National Survey on Drug Use, 2.8% of women admitted to continue to smoking marijuana while pregnant. So far there hasn't been any link between marijuana use and premature births or miscarriages. A few researchers think there could be possible benefits of smoking weed while pregnant. Yes you read that right there are actually a few researchers who think there might be benefits of smoking weed while pregnant.




 A doctor by the name of Melanie C. Dreher followed 59 Jamaican children for 5 years following birth. And were unable to find any negative difference between in development between the kids who's parents used cannabis, and kids who's parents didn't. The study also uncovered that kids who's parents used marijuana, at 30 days old scored higher on measures of nervous system stability and reflexes. Then the study revealed that kids who's parents were heavy smokers of marijuana, (21 Joints or more) scored higher on auditory, visual and tactile response measures. The kids of heavy smoking weed smoking parents also showed less irritability and fewer startles, than the non use group.

 Many people back in the 1990's believed that marijuana could have effects on birth weight. However,
10 studies released in 1997 showed that these claims were inaccurate. Researchers also say that cannabis use during pregnancy doesn't seem to have any affects on the child's IQ. Those were a few facts about marijuana use during pregnancy.

 However even though marijuana use during pregnancy doesn't seem to have any negative affects on children's health, there are still other things to worry about. The Cannabis Wiki doesn't condone marijuana use while pregnant. There is actually a possibility that using weed while pregnant or around a child can result in CPS taking your child away. Here is the link to the original study done years ago: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1957518
