Cbd and trying to conceive

So much is still unknown at this point. More research needs to be done. But here’s what we’ve learned so far about how CBD impacts fertility.

What is CBD?

We know very little right now about CBD affects fertility and pregnancy. Research on marijuana use has shown that smoking marijuana can decrease ovulation and IVF success. Research has also found that marijuana has a negative impact on male fertility, including significant reduction (30%) in sperm concentration and count. All of this research, however, included marijuana with THC.

CBD, Endocannabinoids and Fertility

The risks of taking CBD aren’t all clear. As with any supplement, tell your doctor you’re taking it. They may even have research and guidance to help you in meeting your health and fertility goals.

CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) — the primary purpose of which is to maintain homeostasis (balance) through various physical and cognitive processes.

It’s best to consult a medical professional before taking any new supplement — especially when you’re trying to conceive. They’ll be able to advise you on the best way forward based on your individual circumstances.

What Evidence Is There to Suggest CBD Limits Fertility?

Currently, there’s no concrete evidence that CBD has any positive or negative effect on fertility in either women or men.

When it comes to fertility, there’s been even less research with regard to CBD. Currently, there isn’t enough information to support the idea that CBD can either limit or boost fertility.
