Results of a Denver Health study found almost 70 percent of licensed Colorado dispensaries contacted as part of the study recommended marijuana to pregnant moms to help with morning sickness.

"There are also concerns about possible long-term effects on the developing brain, impacting cognitive function and decreasing academic ability later in childhood", study lead author Dr. Torri Metz, a perinatologist at Denver Health, said in a statement. The researcher would ask, "are there any products that are recommended for morning sickness?" and record the response from the employee at the dispensary.

The employee replied: "Let me call my daughter, she just had a baby, call me back in five minutes".

The researchers noted that recommendations from cannabis dispensary employees may vary depending on the person who took the call and may not represent the policy of the dispensary or the views of other employees.

Animal research to date has linked marijuana use during pregnancy to an increased risk of underweight and premature infants as well as neurological defects.

Georgia's medical marijuana registry now has about 4,000 people on it, The Hill reported. "This does not mean that they are staffed by people that have any sort of medical education".

"One issue is that dispensaries may not have the proper training, and how women got the prescriptions is another issue because this should not be prescribed for pregnant women", Volkow, who wasn't involved in the study, said in a telephone interview.

More than a third (36 percent) of dispensary employees contacted said that marijuana was safe in pregnancy, while about half (53 percent) said they weren't sure about the drug's safety during pregnancy. Most American doctors because of the uncertainty of the effects of marijuana use advise pregnant women to refrain from its use.

How can women treat morning sickness?

As always, it's recommended to follow the advice of your physician.

"I think that the majority of women are really trying to do the right things for their pregnancy and for their baby", she said.

There are conventional medications for morning sickness that are considered safe for pregnancy, such as vitamin B6 and doxylamine, an antihistamine sold under brands like Unisom.

"My impression is that some women have a certain level of skepticism when it comes to the health care system", she said, and that some might be "leery of taking "pharmaceuticals" during pregnancy but view marijuana as a more "natural" option".

The Marijuana Industry Group stated that it's protocol for dispensary workers to urge customers to speak with a medical professional for any of their health questions, WFTS Tampa Bay reported.
