CBD and Pregnancy
With so many of the common side-effects of pregnancy lining up with the uses of CBD, it’s no wonder many are turning to hemp throughout their pregnancy. Despite the stigma associated with the practice, more and more women are coming forward to share ways in which cannabis has assisted them through their pregnancy.
CBD and Morning Sickness
Due to the lack of scientific study on the topic. These personal accounts have served a hugely important service. Real women in the real world have used cannabis (and report success in doing so) to ease the pain of their pregnancy
Take, for example, this personal testimony from a mom who was experiencing extreme morning sickness. While a low percentage of women experience nausea as bad as she was, she was not alone. 70% of women experience morning sickness, making it one of the most common side effects for expecting mothers!
In the case of the mom in the article, this was not an occasional morning sickness. She was experiencing nausea all day long and finding no relief from the methods being prescribed to her. After consulting with her midwife, she was informed that CBD can have strong anti-nausea properties. She got a CBD solution that didn’t include THC and claims to have found immediate relief from it.
