Everyone knows that women have to be careful about everything they consume when they are pregnant because everything will have some sort of affect on the unborn baby. With that being said, marijuana might not be as bad for a pregnant mom or her baby as people may think. A study done by Pediatrics yielded some results that may be surprising to many.
Comparing infants who were heavily exposed and not exposed at all to cannabis showed that the offspring of heavy-marijuana using mothers had significantly higher scores on:
- autonomic stability
- habituation to auditory and tactile stimuli, and to animate auditory stimuli
- higher degree of alertness
- capacity for consolability
- less irritability
- had fewer startles and tremors
- better physiological stability at one month
- required less examiner facilitation to reach an organized state
- more socially responsive
- the quality of their alertness was higher
- their motor and autonomic systems were more robust
- they had better self-regulation
- they were more rewarding for caregivers than the neonates of non-using mothers at one month of age
Now with all that being said, I am not a mother or female and I don’t have any kids of my own. I am not advocating smoking marijuana while pregnant but you can’t argue with results and facts. Until someone shows me evidence from a reputable source that says otherwise, I am going to go ahead and say that if you are stressed out and pregnant, a few hits of the J is not going to kill anyone. Just be careful because combining pregnancy and the munchies could result in you buying whole isles of food from the super market. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Shout outs to Jack Herer for putting me up on this.
I want to hear what you guys think about this topic. It’s a little controversial and I definitely think more research is needed but it is definitely worth finding out because I am sure there are many moms out there smoking weed (among other things) while pregnant already.
