Blunt Blowin' Mama

Dec 9, 2021

On this week's episode of Blunt Blowin' Mama, we analyze a new study — published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Nov. 15 — on cannabis use in pregnancy. The study’s researchers revealed in their findings that cannabis use in pregnancy causes higher levels of cortisol in the children born, resulting in more instances of anxiety, stress, and depression. There were also reports that children born to mothers who smoked weed during pregnancy had higher instances of aggression and hyperactivity. We reached out to the study's author Yasmin Hurd but we received no reply. So, we brought on nurses Adjuan and Kait to unpack the study's findings and provide real, transparent, and unbiased insights. Check out the full episode now!
