A new study published this month by the journal Reproduction, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found exciting new evidence to suggest that proper cannabinoid signalling can lead to health placental development during pregnancy, and an overall good pregnancy outcome. Proper signaling should be done by the body itself, so make sure your endocannabinoid system is activated and running smoothly.
There has been a lot of feat that cannabis might damage the brain or lead to late development etc.of children, but there have still not been any serious study to back up these claims. More studies has to be done. On the other hand both mothers and children using cannabis as medicine seem to be just fine, and sometimes even better. So if you need medication during your pregnancy, maybe cannabis would be the healthier solution compared to some of the other alternatives. Always smart to do some research, before making a decision.
Therefore, this study supports the importance of cannabinoid signalling during cytotrophoblast cell turnover and that its deregulation may be implicated in altered placental development pregnancy outcome.
