Using cannabis can possibly land you in legal trouble in some places but it can’t be denied that cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for a long time. But the need of the hour is to find other medicinal uses from the whole plant itself rather than from just one of its parts. Enter Cannabidiol (CBD). This cannabis component has shown signs that it could be beneficial in many areas and one of these is  hair loss. It has been seen that CBD oil and edibles could halt hair loss.

How CBD Can Stop Hair Loss?

Let us tell you about the benefits of CBD. The reason why it is so effective in case of hair loss is because:

  • Fights Skin Conditions: Hair loss can occur due to plenty of reasons. This can range from dermatitis, eczema, scalp inflammation and more. Sometimes the situation can seem hopeless to many. But research has pointed out that CBD oil contains the necessary compounds to fight these skin conditions. You can use CBD oil to create edibles too especially if you don’t want to use the oil directly on your scalp. But if you are suffering from scalp inflammation then it’s advisable that you should apply the CBD oil directly. It will be even more effective if you apply microneedling along
  • Regulates Sebum Production: Many-a-times people find that the reason for their hair loss is lack of sebum production. Sebum is a compound that helps in regulating skin and scalp quality. If your body produces too much sebum then your skin will turn out to be oily. If the production is too little then it will be dry. CBD steps in here to regulate sebum secretion for all skin types. So whether your hair is oily, dry or normal; CBD edibles or oil will help you get the ideal hair type you want.
  • Contains Necessary Acids: You might think that your hair is fine and growing well so you might not need CBD oil even if there’s a little hair loss. That might cost you later since hair loss most commonly occurs due to an imbalance of oils and moisture. What seems like little hair fall now can escalate later on to something big. Taking CBD edibles can nip your hair loss problems right in the bud itself. It stimulates hair growth by giving the scalp the essential nutrients it needs to improve- namely, Omega 6 and Omega 3.
  • Contains Necessary Minerals: CBD contains a lot of compounds and minerals which helps in preventing hair loss irrespective of its causes. For example, it contains minerals like iron and magnesium which helps facilitate better and consistent blood flow to the scalp. These minerals keep the hair shiny and healthy as well.
  • Strengthen Hair: Apart from preventing hair loss, CBD edibles or oil strengthen your hair as well. Know that your hair gets its strength and shine from a protein called Keratin. But to keep this protein secretion healthy you will need a constant flow of Vitamin A, C and E. These powerful antioxidants are all present in CBD oil and edibles to keep your hair strong.

It should be kept in mind that although CBD might seem like a magical solution to many hair problems but it isn’t so. In fact, its full effects are still being studied and there’s a long way to go before it can be fully utilized. Along with this, it’s important to keep in mind that CBD can’t help if the hair loss is genetic
