Micronutrient May Offset Damage from Cannabis Use During Pregnancy

Wednesday, 7 August 2019

The number of pregnant women using marijuanaTrusted Source has grown slightly in recent years, despite many warnings about the harms marijuana use can inflict on growing babies.

 

 

 

Past research has found the percent of women using cannabis while pregnant increased from about just under 2 to over 3 percent.Some women use the drug to treat morning sickness, depression, stress, and anxiety throughout their pregnancies, while others use it before they even know they’re pregnant.New research from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora, Colorado, suggests that maternal marijuana use can damage the fetal brain earlier than experts previously thought and put the child at risk for serious developmental impairments.

 

 

 

The researchers may have also unveiled a potential way to mitigate the damage linked to maternal marijuana use.The common micronutrient choline, found in foods like poultry, eggs, and broccoli, may protect the fetus’s brain from some harm when the mother uses marijuana, according to a study recently published in the journal Psychological Medicine.
