CBD When Trying to Conceive

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring chemical in the marijuana plant. There's no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in CBD — that's the component in marijuana that causes a high. CBD is available in the form of an oil capsule, an extract, a vapor, in a beverage of even in a lotion. . 🍃 1. CBD in Pregnancy: There haven’t been studies showing that it is safe in pregnancy or specifically what effects CBD hemp oil has on a fetus. I tell my patients to absolutely steer clear in pregnancy until we know more. 🍃 2. CBD and Sperm: We know marijuana can contribute to male infertility. We do not yet know if CBD products made from cannabis might also have a negative affect. But when a couple is having difficulty conceiving, I recommend that they avoid CBD until we know more. 🍃 3. CBD when TTC: Even though there is a 2012 study that shows an association with CBD and female arosal, not much is known about the impact of CBD on fertility. In one study conducted in mice, researchers found that the naturally occurring compound anandamide which is increased with CBD use, actually inhibited the development of embryos. So to be safe, the current recommendation is to steer clear of it if you're trying to conceive. 🍃
