Almost 70% of Colorado Dispensaries Recommend Cannabis to Pregnant Women, Study Says

Almost 70% of Colorado Dispensaries Recommend Cannabis to Pregnant Women, Study Says Almost 70% of Colorado Dispensaries Recommend Cannabis to Pregnant Women, Study Says

In many points of distribution of medical marijuana in the United States, it is recommended to pregnant women for the treatment of bouts of morning sickness in spite of negative recommendations of doctors.

"The health effects of cannabis use in pregnancy may differ depending on mode of administration (e.g., vaping versus smoking), cannabis potency, trimester of cannabis exposure, and concurrent use of other substances, factors that we are just beginning to include in research on the health effects of cannabis use in pregnancy", Young-Wolff said by email.

In the recent Colorado study, Dr. Metz and her fellow researchers reported a huge variance in the recommendations given from dispensary employees to pregnant women. Out of the 400 dispensaries contacted, 69%, or 277 budtenders, recommended using some form of cannabis to treat the reported nausea.

State regulators are bending over backward to help the cannabis industry get up and running in California.

Animal research to date has linked marijuana use during pregnancy to an increased risk of underweight and premature infants as well as neurological defects.

But, selling and growing medical marijuana in Georgia is illegal, as it transporting it across state lines.

"The effects are not dramatic, but that doesn't mean they are not important", Jodi Gilman, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School who studies adolescent cannabis use, told the New York Times past year.

When asked if cannabis is safe to take during pregnancy one employee said, "I know aspirin is okay for babies, and that is pretty much what you are getting in an aspirin".

Already, 1 in 20 USA women reports using pot while pregnant, according to the CDC. Although the science on whether or not marijuana affects a developing fetus is still unclear, this finding shows there is a problem in dispensary worker training when it comes to dealing with pregnant customers.

Another suggested some doctors would just lie to you or will just try pushing pills on you. The most frequent recommendation was edibles followed by inhalation.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that "women who are pregnant or contemplating pregnancy should be encouraged to discontinue marijuana use" and "to discontinue use of marijuana for medicinal purposes in favor of an alternative therapy".

"I think that the majority of women are really trying to do the right thing for their pregnancy and for their baby", she added. "Are there any products that are recommended for morning sickness?" The highest increase may be among women 24 and younger, according to a study of pregnant women in California in December.

"Legalization does not equate to safety, particularly in pregnancy", she said.

Medical marijuana dispensaries were even more likely than other cannabis retailers to recommend the drug to pregnant women: 83 percent of medical dispensaries did this, compared to slightly more than 60 percent of other dispensaries.
