If you visit our website, you know that the use of marijuana in women of reproductive age is on the rise and that we are concerned about it.  The FDA has put out a consumer update discussing the use of cannabis, including CBD, in pregnant and breastfeeding women.  In plain English, it describes what we know and don’t know about cannabis and its effects on pregnancy and the developing child.

It is a great informational handout for clinicians and their patients.  It is also available in SPANISH.
