Cannabis and Pregnancy: what you need to know

Many women believe that smoking cannabis during pregnancy won't be harmful to the developing fetus. Unfortunately the evidence says otherwise. Using cannabis during pregnancy can be linked to preterm labour, low birth weight, and lower IQ scores.

There is no known safe dose of cannabis to use during pregnancy. This is true however the cannabis is ingested: smoking, vaping, oils or edibles. Cannabis should not be used as an alternative to smoking cigarettes, or to fight morning sickness. In addition, cannabis can easily be transmitted through breastmilk and should not be used while breast-feeding.
