Women used to drink and smoke while pregnant
It is unfortunate that a pregnant woman cannot get prescribed medical cannabis. If you think about it, a lot of the issues pregnant women face can be helped significantly with medical cannabis. Chemotherapy patients rely on medical marijuana to combat the nausea that follows chemotherapy. Every pregnancy I have had the worst nausea. It would be really nice to smoke something and know that it won’t be a problem. Cannabis also is an excellent sleep aid. It calms the mind and relaxes the body. It also can reduce inflammation and swelling. So no more swollen feet or ankles waking a lady up. Another issue I experienced was with acid reflux. What do you know, that can be helped with a little medical weed. I understand smoking marijuana is probably not good for the fetus. What about an edible? There are healthier edibles out there? If the cannabis plant is really so bad for the baby, a topical should be allowed. This is a cream that applies directly to the skin to help with swelling, inflammation and cramps. How can that be bad for the baby? How can something on my skin affect something in my stomach? Who knows? I feel there isn’t enough research about cannabis and pregnant women. It is easier to say no than to actually look into it. I for one would really like to know if cannabis would benefit me during my pregnancy and be worth a possible risk. Women used to drink and smoke while pregnant. I hardly think weed is worse.
