I quit smoking weed 2 and a half months ago. Will this show up in my delivery? I do not even take asprin

I quit smoking weed 2 and a half months ago. Will this show up in my delivery? I do not even take asprin

Probably not. Even: Heavy users of pot, once stopped, don't usually test positive for THC after 30 days. Glad you stopped as marijuana is not good for growing fetuses (nor really for any nervous system). Studies on this show trends towards developmental delays, language problems, potential attention and behavior alterations in children whose mum used pot during pregnancy.

I quit smoking weed at 26 weeks, 3 days ago, will it show up in my babys system at birth?

3rd Trimester's: Good for you for stopping! The most dangerous exposure to the baby is the 3rd trimester - so you've quit just in time. If you totally stay clean and also avoid the other risky substances, it should be okay. Meconium rarely includes traces of cannabis if none was taken past 6 mths. In some cases there is some, but not much. You did your best and just need to continue. Congratulations - best wishes!

Why can't I smoke weed but can smoke cigarettes is it because of anxiety because I quit smoking weed then started smoking cigs but now I stopped?

Why can't I smoke weed but can smoke cigarettes is it because of anxiety because I quit smoking weed then started smoking cigs but now I stopped?

Marijuana Side Effec: Some people have a paradoxical reaction to the cannabanoids in marijuana. Severe anxiety can be the result. If I could I would wish for you a life without smoking nicotine. Just take it from an old man who used to live in baltimore that this habit will not bring you anything good or healthy.
