Due to the lack of research in this area, the fact that pregnancy is a huge variable that can alter research findings (and hormone levels) significantly, and the effect of cannabinoids on a developing child’s brain, it is wise to avoid using medical cannabis during pregnancy. Two areas where cannabis may be useful in pregnancy is for the treatment of Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG, aka morning sickness) in the early stages of pregnancy, and post-partum depression (PPD). These are conditions where medical cannabis is least likely to affect the mother or the child.
