  • Small quantities of THC pass into the milk of cannabis using mothers. In a study in monkeys who chronically received THC, 0.2% of the THC appeared in the breast milk. According to that, daily use of 50 mg of THC (e.g. 1 gram marijuana with a THC content of 5%) would result in daily 0.1 mg THC in breast milk.
    Chronic cannabis use by the mother leads to an accumulation of THC in the milk. Milk of cannabis using mothers may show significantly higher concentrations of THC than their blood. In one study the concentration of THC in the milk was 8.4 times higher than in blood plasma. Assuming a relatively high medium concentration of 10 ng/ml (nanogram per millilitre) THC in the plasma of a cannabis user and a tenfold higher concentration in the milk (100 ng/ml), this would result in overall 0,07 mg THC in 700 ml milk. 700 ml is the medium daily milk intake of an infant.

  • So far, two studies have been conducted to investigate the effects of cannabis use by lactating mothers on infant development. One did find no effects (Tennes et al. 1985), the other found slight effects on motor development, if cannabis was used more than 15 days during the first month after birth (see above, Astley and Little 1990).
    The amount of THC found in breast milk of cannabis users is low despite accumaltion with regular use. Only heavy cannabis use will result in amounts that possibly are relevant for the baby. Occasional or low regular use will probably not be of relevance.

  • Save your brain cells. You may need them to take care of your baby.
