CBD While Pregnant

CBD Products » Blog » CBD While Pregnant

It is natural to feel unpleasant side effects while pregnant, like extreme nausea, backaches, and anxiety. But many drugs are unsafe for you and your unborn baby. Suppose you are on the lookout for something natural to cure pregnancy morning sickness, anxiety, nausea, or backaches. In that case, you may start to consider cannabidiol (CBD) products.

Cannabidiol is an intake substance obtained from marijuana (cannabis) and hemp. It doesn’t get you high, and its products are getting popular daily in this century. Several manufacturers incorporate it in their products, such as food, drinks, supplements, beauty products and, other consumables.

As wonderful as this product may seem, it is a wrong idea to take CBD products while pregnant. Although there is no adequate research yet to exact the effect of CBD products on pregnancy, there are few potential effects. It is better to obey caution and do not take it during pregnancy.

Why is CBD Controversial For Use In Pregnant Women?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)  agency strongly advises against using cannabidiol (CBD) containing products while pregnant or planning to get pregnant. Although there is no broad-gauge research on the effect of CBD on the fetus during pregnancy, yet based on FDA release, there is a significant cause to consign.

For a thing, we need more research into CBD products’ effect on pregnant women and the fetus. Experts who have researched the effect of cannabidiol on pregnant animals introduce high doses of CBD into the test pregnant animals observe problems in the reproductive system. That does not imply it will have the same effect on pregnant women or the fetus, but the FDA is still concerned

Also, possibly the CBD obtained for the containing product is not well extracted and processed during the manufacturing process and may contain other cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the chemical substance in cannabis plant that makes you high. Experts advise pregnant women to avoid THC intake during pregnancy. THC intake during pregnancy may affect the fetus’s brain development in the womb. It may also increase the chance of stillbirth or premature birth of the child.

In addition, there are several reports of CBD contamination with other things such as heavy metals, pesticides, and bacteria. The contaminations may be due to the growth location, type of soil where the cannabis plant is grown, and other environmental contaminations. These contaminations decrease the purity level of CBD and posses a risk to everyone who uses it.

Advice from Happy Garden CBD to pregnant women and waiting mothers: Pregnancy differs from one individual to another. It is essential to visit your prenatal health provider if you consider using CBD-containing products while pregnant. 

What Should I do If I Use CBD Before I Get Pregnant?

If you consume CBD products regularly before you realized you are pregnant, do not panic, you are probably OK. Ensure you stop the CBD intake and visit an OB/GYN clinic so that they can monitor the health of your fetus as necessary. 

Safe Alternative For CBD During Pregnancy

Since we concluded that CBD has a known ability to provide relief to specific pregnancy symptoms, it is unsafe for use in pregnant women. Here are some natural remedies that may help cure specific pregnancy symptoms.

Magnesium

Magnesium is a vital mineral during pregnancy. Due to its calming and soothing effect, it helps to promote sleep when taken regularly. Sleeping helps to combat anxiety and depression.

Also, an adequate intake of magnesium can help to prevent miscarriage and other pregnancy complications. Magnesium drinks help cure nausea in the early stage of pregnancy.

Vitamin B

Vitamin B provides the solution to pregnancy-induced nausea. However, it is advisable not to take more vitamin B  than the amount registered in your prenatal vitamins unless your healthcare provider instructs you.

A Word from Happy Garden CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) has several benefits, but the possible risk on the developing fetus in the womb makes it entirely unsafe for use in pregnant women. Immature birth, miscarriage stillborn, disruption of infant motor neurons, and other pregnancy symptoms are related to CBD intake during pregnancy.
