Cannabis and endocannabinoid modulators: Therapeutic promises and challenges
Studies have found dronabinol to be effective in stimulating appetite in both cancer patients  and HIV infected patients . Interestingly, endocannabinoids are present in breast milk, 2-AG levels being much higher than those of anandamide .
The CB1 receptor has also been implicated as essential in the development of the feeding response in mice pup neonates—in the absence of CB1 receptor signaling, mediated either by CB1 antagonism or genetic CB1 deletion, mice pups do not draw milk from the mother and die [15,16]. These data suggest that endocannabinoids play a critical role in survival of the newborn mouse by controlling milk ingestion.
About 70% of Colorado's cannabis dispensaries recommended marijuana products to pregnant women to treat their first-trimester nausea, according to an August study by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
I'm guessing you have (though I've managed not to read anything of the sort)
Is there evidence to support the claim that there is such a thing as cannabis breast milk?
Scientists have discovered cannabinoids in breast milk – so the answer is yes there is evidence of cannabis breast milk – absolutely!
But the researchers' deepening concerns don't seem to be hitting the broader medical community amid changing public views, the growth of the cannabis industry and a backlash against the former stigma around marijuana use. Jansson has applied for grants to study marijuana-dependent mothers and impacts of cannabis on their infants before and after birth but, she said, those applications haven't been well-received.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, or ACOG, has also found that 34% to 60% of marijuana users keep using during pregnancy "with many women believing that it is relatively safe to use during pregnancy and less expensive than tobacco." A 2015 analysis in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology found that more than 70% of pregnant women see no or slight risk to using marijuana once or twice a week.
