ALTHOUGH THERE ARE NO KNOW HARMFUL SIDE-EFFECT FROM CBD, THERE IS NOT ENOUGH CONCRETE EVIDENCE THAT CBD DOES NOT HAVE ANY NEGATIVE EFFECTS ON THE MOTHER OR UNBORN CHILD.
Due to this lack of scientific evidence we recommend that you contact your specialist or doctor before continuing our CBD oils during your pregnancy.
THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS A COLLECTION OF SCIENTIFIC REPORTS ABOUT CBD AND PREGNANCY.
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM OF A MOTHER
Researchers have discovered that the endocannabinoid system plays a crucial role in the condition of the womb, and with that the development of the embryo and fetus.
The endocannabinoid system is a large network of cell receptors and is responsible for maintaining homeostasis, which means the creation of a perfect balance for overall health of your body.
Homeostasis is the ability of multi-cellar organisms to keep our internal environment in balance despite the constant change in our outer environment, through homeostasis an organism can adjust the functions of all individual organs to maintain a healthy strong body, when an organism fails in maintaining homeostasis its body will fail and eventually die.
CANNABINOID RECEPTORS ARE LOCATED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BODY, EVEN THE WOMB.
In the last decade researchers have discovered that the endocannabinoid system plays a major part in the female reproduction organs and helps with:
1. Blastocyst formation, a blastocyst is the first “collection” of cells which eventually form the embryo.
2. The placement of the embryo in the womb.
3. The transportation of the female egg through the ovaries.
4. The development of the placenta
THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM OF AN UNBORN CHILD
Every human being is born with an endocannabinoid system, this is shaped whilst the fetus is growing in the mother´s womb.
How this ECS effects the development of the fetus is not known and the same counts for the influence of the mothers endocannabinoid system on her unborn child.
Researchers have discovered that cannabinoids do not pose any harmful side-effects as long as they are not smoked, this would mean that our CBD oils should have no negative effects on a pregnant mother or her unborn child.
But as long as there is no concrete scientific result we recommend that you contact your specialist or physician before you decide to continue using CBD oil when pregnant.
BUILDING DOWN YOUR DAILY CBD DOSAGE
If you decide to temporarily end your CBD intake we recommend to halve your dosage every 3 days.
BUILDING UP YOUR DOSAGE ONCE AGAIN
As soon as you are ready to start using our CBD oil again we recommend to once again start with the recommended buildup of an extra drop every 5th day.
SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES
Due to the limited availability of information regarding CBD and pregnancy, we ask you to share your experiences on our facebook group so other mothers can make a better judgement on what they should/could do when planning their pregnancy.
