I'm live in CA where there are dispensaries every corner. I get my vaporizer from a friend. I've been using it for the past two weeks. It helps me get the yucky nausea feeling so I can eat. I'm 8w2d.

I live in California as well, and did use a "vaporizer pen" before finding out I was pregnant. I stopped once I found out. This is my 2nd pregnancy but first battle with HG. I'm on zofran but it's not giving me any relief. I've been getting IV treatments as well. After reading all of these posts I'm now considering trying some form of edible or vapor to see if it gives me any relief. I'm willing to try anything at this point. Can't be that much worse than the prescription medications I'm being given. I'm hoping it will relieve the nausea and allow me to get down liquids !!! Walking around dry heaving/vomiting bile all day all while caring for a toddler is getting very hard for me to do.

At this point, I want to try anything that works. I'm on Zofran, Reglan, b-6 with unisom, and daily IV Infusions. My husband is afraid that kaiser will report is to cps for trying to combat this with cannabis. Does anyone have any experience with this in Southern California? Specifically with Kaiser insurance?

This is my first pregnancy, I'm currently 14 ½ weeks and hg has no sign of letting up. Estimated delivery date, 1/6/15

I have kaiser as well and I have heard stories that they test at time of birth but not sure about testing for drugs in any other point of pregnancy. They send you all of your test results so I would think they have to disclose any of your results to you but who knows.

Hello,
My name is Eric Geisterfer and I do volunteer background research on medical cannabis (marijuana). I'm including a link to a research article I posted which includes the latest scientific evidence on cannabis and pregnancy and will clarify a lot of questions being asked in this forum regarding marijuana, pregnancy, effects on the fetus, morning sickness and HG. Just highlight the link, right click and open article in a new link, it will take you to the article.

I hope this helps.
