Impact of Cannabis on adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: An exploratory study

Cannabis use is a common strategy for FASD individuals to ease the mental, physical, and emotional FASD-related effects. Still, there is no evidence about its impact on FASD-associated symptoms. This ongoing study seeks to describe cannabis use and its positive and negative effects in adults with FASD. Preliminary findings suggest that cannabis can be helpful when adults with FASD are aware of the impact of cannabis on their bodies and can regulate their use. To ensure research findings are consistent with the reality of cannabis use for FASD symptom management, Dr Mela works with an advisory team including adults with FASD, caregivers, and community support organizations.
