Cannabis and Pregnancy

There is different evidence out there on whether cannabis can be safely used by pregnant women in regards to the fetus. Another important consideration should be that even if the cannabis is safe, if you are not buying from a trusted source the pesticides could be dangerous.

Read the research below and decide for yourself:

1991 – Cannabis smoking mothers in Jamaica children are followed and they never show any issues that could be linked to cannabis. In fact infants less than 30 days from cannabis using mothers were more socially interactive and physiologically stable.
