Can I Use CBD While Pregnant or Breastfeeding?

Taking CBD is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Dr. J Hampton Atkinson, co-director of the Center of Medical Cannabis Research (CMCR) at the University of California, San Diego, weighs in: “CBD, like many other substances, probably should be avoided in pregnancy.”

Additionally, because CBD can be passed on to babies through breast milk with unknown effects, it is not recommended to use CBD while breastfeeding. Allow a washout period of around two weeks before breastfeeding your baby if you have used CBD products.

Always consult with your physician before ingesting any new substance like CBD.
