WILL YOUR BABY COME OUT WITH DREADS? –  

Nov 09, 2021 – Researchers reported an increase in prenatal hospitalizations involving cannabis use disorder between 2010 and 2018, according to study results published in JAMA Psychiatry. “A recent study documented increased prevalence of anxiety, depression and trauma in 11,681 patients who used cannabis prenatally,” Angélica Meinhofer, PhD, of the department of population health sciences at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York, and colleagues wrote. “However, most studies have been limited by relying on self-reported cannabis use and mood-related disorders, by examining cannabis use and not [cannabis use disorder (CUD)] or by not considering concomitant [substance use disorders (SUDs)]. As the prevalence of polysubstance use among pregnant people who use cannabis is substantial, it is critical to consider whether it may obfuscate factors specifically associated with CUD.”
