How The Private Cannabis Market Get Affected From Coronavirus!

New research has found a correlation between smoking marijuana during pregnancy and premature birth. The study also showed that babies born to mothers who smoked pot were more likely to die in the first year of life than those whose mothers did not smoke regularly during their pregnancies.

Heavy marijuana use can affect the development of your baby’s brain, which may lead to developmental problems later on in childhood. Smoking marijuana while pregnant could also cause issues with memory and impulsivity for your child when they grow up.

The study’s lead author cautioned that the results aren’t conclusive because they only measured THC in the mothers’ urine and not other chemicals present in marijuana smoke.

There is also some evidence to suggest it may be possible to use THC as a potential treatment for conditions such as chronic pain, epilepsy, or cancer. This research will continue while these questions remain unanswered.

Experts say more research on how smoking pot during pregnancy affects babies’ health is needed before any conclusions can be made about whether women should avoid using cannabis when pregnant or breastfeeding.

Another approach is to regulate the potency of THC in cannabis products.

The study’s lead author cautioned that the results aren’t conclusive because they only measured THC in the mothers’ urine and not other chemicals present in marijuana smoke.

Another thing you can do is make sure that dispensaries have warning signs and include warnings on cannabis products about the dangers to fetuses.

The thing about marijuana is that it’s not just one drug – there are many different molecules and cannabinoids, so you have to be careful with the particular type of molecule. It’s also important to note that we don’t know what dose should cause harm because there isn’t enough information available on a lot of these chemicals.

It’s really important for pregnant women who use cannabis products to avoid overheating or smoking anything until they’re done being pregnant – if they smoke during pregnancy then they could risk giving birth prematurely or delivering an underweight baby which can lead to death in some cases. We do need more research into this topic but I think our best bet would be trying to figure out how much THC is safe while still having a positive effect on the pregnancy.

In general, for a pregnant woman who does not want to use cannabis anymore it would be best to stop smoking marijuana at least two weeks before they go into labor and then cut back as much as possible while still being able to function. If their doctor approves of them using THC in small amounts during pregnancy that might also help with some of their symptoms like nausea or anxiety but this should always happen under medical supervision and guidelines.

As you can see from these few points there are multiple different factors when considering how safe smoking marijuana is during pregnancy so it’s important that women talk about this choice early on with both their obstetrician and an addiction specialist before making any decisions one way or another. It seems like a tough decision but if they are going to be smoking marijuana during pregnancy then it’s important that they take steps to ensure their baby has the best possible chance of being born healthy and without any disabilities.

The first thing I think every woman in this situation should do is talk with her doctor and obstetrician about what options she might have, from quitting cold turkey (which isn’t easy) or cutting back until labor starts. Depending on how often they smoke weed before getting pregnant will also affect when they go into labor so knowing more about this can help them figure out how much time there is left for them while planning for anything else happening like premature birth which could happen at anytime after 20 weeks gestation. Hopefully all goes well because having an early delivery will lead to more health risks and complications for the baby, so its vital that they take steps to ensure their baby has the best possible chance of being born healthy and without any disabilities.
