Program Description

An estimated 7% of women are using cannabis during pregnancy. Although women may use it for medical reasons such as nausea or vomiting in pregnancy, the prevalence of non-medical use is higher. 

Additionally, employees in cannabis dispensaries are recommending cannabis to these women. Many women and healthcare professionals are unaware of the potential risks to the fetus and mother. In this session, we will discuss the effects of cannabis on the endocannabinoid system and fetal development, review studies that have evaluated use of cannabis in pregnancy, and describe counseling opportunities and challenges regarding cannabis use in pregnancy and lactation. Overall, healthcare professionals need to be informed of available data to communicate effectively with patients who may be using or considering use of cannabis during pregnancy and lactation.

Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Discuss use of cannabis on the endocannabinoid system and fetal development.
  • Evaluate studies that have evaluated use of cannabis in pregnancy and lactation.
  • Discuss counseling opportunities and challenges regarding cannabis use in pregnancy and lactation.
