Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
In the condition of pregnancy, hormonal regulation changes from normal conditions, so there can be changes in some bodily functions such as nausea and vomiting, especially in the first trimester. However, there can also be sudden and drastic changes in mood, including one that is the desire to consume certain foods.
Illegal use of cannabis in Indonesia refers to the Law of the Republic of Indonesia No. 35 of 2009 related to narcotics use. So it is not recommended to use marijuana both in pregnancy or not. Scientifically, there are no categories related to the use of marijuana as a medication and its level of safety for consumption by pregnant women.
It is recommended not to take self-medication without doctor's instructions, avoid using treatments that are not recorded in the safety category of pregnant women, carry out routine control related to pregnancy monitoring.
Hopefully this information can help you,
