As the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana increases around the world, the potential for babies to be impacted by this herb during breastfeeding increases exponentially. In the United States, several states has recently legalized or on the path to legalization the consumption of marijuana (cannabis). This trend has led to more lactation consultants and healthcare professionals being faced with the question, "Is is safe for me to use marijuana while I breastfeed?" The answers given vary widely and this is due largely to myth, bias, and poor conducted and accessed research. The Medications and Mother's Milk Guide considers cannabis to be an L5, contraindicated for breastfeeding while Lactnet states that it is preferable for users to continue breastfeeding and yet minimize the baby's exposure to smoke. These widely differing recommendations lead healthcare professionals to scratch their heads and face the knowledge that they just don't know what to say to mothers. Additionally, there are reports of social services removing babies from home due to mother's marijuana use while breastfeeding. New research on the critical importance of the human endocannabinoid system, fetal and early infant development, and the potent interplay with marijuana cannabinoids are discussed here. This presentation takes an in depth look at the most recent research and policies surrounding this controversial herb, as well as addresses how to counsel families who may be using and/or abusing the drug.
