According to a 2016 research by National Survey of Drug Use and Health, the number of women using marijuana during pregnancy was about 5%. But many people are now using marijuana, unlike before, and the numbers could be higher than that.

With many mothers embracing the drug, the motivation is beyond just for recreational purposes. Most of the pregnant and breastfeeding moms use cannabis to elevate several issues related to their condition, such as vomiting, nausea, and more.

So, if you are thinking of using Marijuana to help you, then you will be glad to find out that there are many benefits to enjoy. Here are some of them.

1. Help with Nausea

Nausea is a common sickness during pregnancy. If you don’t get any success after trying other means, then it’s probably time to give marijuana a try. However, it is important to know that the level of effectiveness could vary from one individual to another. Some users show positive response immediately after using marijuana. But be sure to consult your doctor first to avoid developing any complications.

2. Stops Vomiting

When you experience nausea, there is a high chance that vomiting will follow. Vomiting is another common symptom that pregnant women must deal with. The available research suggests that Marijuana can help with vomiting.

Cannabinoids can help in suppressing nausea or vomiting through activating receptor sites of the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS). A scientific paper by British Journal of Pharmacology gives evidence that suggests regulation of vomiting and nausea is possible by manipulation of the ECS in humans as well as animals which makes marijuana a great alternative for use in treating nausea.

3. Helps with Sleep

Many pregnant and breastfeeding women experience symptoms of insomnia at some point. As a result, there is an interest as to whether marijuana can help in treating the sleeping disorder. Well, most members of the medical marijuana community are advocating for the use of marijuana due to its effectiveness in treating the condition. According to Dr. Matt Roman, who is a medical marijuana physician, the drug helps in sleep as it restores the patients’ natural sleep cycle.

However, it’s wise, to begin with consulting with your doctor before you start using marijuana. Once you decide to use marijuana, ensure that you pick the right strain such as Indica which is relaxing. This will ensure that you get the best results from the medication since the level of effectiveness varies with the choice of strain.

4. Fights Pain

Occasionally, pregnant and lactating mothers may experience pain at some point of time. For most people, the first response usually is to seek treatment from hospitals. However, the medication doesn’t always work if the condition is not well understood. Besides, it’s hard to find an effective drug for a particular pain, and as a result, the patient usually ends up with side effects.

As the search for better treatment of pain continues, marijuana users discovered its healing properties. Since then, marijuana plays a vital role in curing various illnesses such as headaches and pains resulting from childbirth.

5. Improves Mental Health

Just as keeping fit physically is important, the well-being of your mind is essential as well. However, unlike physical fitness, most people often ignore the state of their mental health. Today, many people recognize how essential staying healthy mentally is to increased productivity.

Research shows that there is a direct relationship between mental illnesses like anxiety and depression and cannabis. Marijuana contains a chemical composition that improves the mental health of the users.

Although cannabis is yet to become legal in many places, many patients are suffering from psychiatric disorders using marijuana report improvement. This makes cannabis a great choice for healing conditions such as opiate dependence, chronic pain, bipolar disorder, PTSD, depression, and more.

6. Treats Digestive Disorders

Cannabis sativa, which is a subspecies of the marijuana plant, is made up of cannabinoids, which are aromatic hydrocarbon compounds. The most abundant cannabinoid is the 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, and it’s the key psychotropic component. Cannabinoids are responsible for activating the G-Protein cannabinoid receptors of type one and two.

Researchers are still trying to find out the healing power of cannabis indigestion disorders. However, some users of cannabis report its effectiveness in treating gastrointestinal (GI) disorders like diarrhea and abdominal pain.

The available research confirms the role that marijuana plays in healing pancreases, liver, gut, and other GI symptoms. While the current review supports the use of cannabis and healthy food in treating digestive illnesses, the clinical efficacy of marijuana is still unclear. But with the little to no side effects, it might still be one of the best available options for pregnant women and lactating mothers with GI disorders.


There are several benefits that pregnant women can get from marijuana. Although it is still illegal in other states, cannabis will soon be legal with many research underway that will back up the little available research on its medicinal properties. Besides, the medicinal effects of marijuana can be more effective than some medications and have fewer side effects.

If you are planning on using marijuana, then you should head to online dispensary Canada for a recommendation on high-quality strains that will help you treat your condition. However, always seek advice from medical experts before you start using cannabis to ensure that it doesn’t affect you or your baby.
