Although this episode was originally posted in September of 2020, it is so packed full of helpful, reliable information that we had to bring attention to it again. Hear from a group of industry professionals on their takeaways from this alarming study. Does smoking weed during pregnancy have a correlation to children born with autism?
An article published in a Canadian study is generating a buzz in and out of the cannabis community
A recently published study in Nature Medicine has the community talking. Findings in the study suggest that there is correlation between cannabis use in pregnancy and autism. ‘Cannabis use during pregnancy is linked to an increased risk of autism in babies‘, according to a Canadian study, published on August 10, 2020. We know I am mom who smoked weed while pregnant, AND while breastfeeding my second baby. Reading this study left me with more questions and concerns than answers. While we appreciate that cannabis studies are finally being shared with the public, the title alone places fear at the forefront rather than being informative. When news of this study spread, so did the fears and concerns of many parents who began to wonder: Is it safe to smoke weed during pregnancy?
We are taking a deep dive into the study with a group of experts in their fields
Today’s episode will tackle that study, and it’s my hope that this conversation will serve as a resource for any woman seeking expert opinions about cannabis and pregnancy as a doctor, nurse, and fellow cannamom weigh in.
