Frequently Asked Questions
Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant that has recently emerged as a breakthrough ingredient with a multitude of benefits. From a topical standpoint, CBD is rich with nutrients including antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are crucial to promoting healthy hair and scalp. As a cannabinoid, CBD is able to integrate with your body’s endocannabinoid system, making it naturally receptive to its benefits.
Absolutely! We understand there is a lot of confusion about the legality of CBD, but the biggest determining factor is where the CBD is derived from.
There are different strains of the cannabis plant categorized under two main umbrellas: marijuana and industrial hemp. CBD extracted from marijuana is NOT legal in all states. We do not use that one. However, CBD extracted from industrial hemp, IS legal. Industrial hemp does not contain THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient that makes you high. This is what allows industrial hemp to fall outside of the drug classification, and makes it legal in most states and a growing number of countries.
No, as we mentioned above, CBD derived from industrial hemp is THC-Free, so our products don’t contain the compound that makes you high.
We like to say that healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp, and CBD is an essential ingredient in providing nourishment and balance to your scalp. It contains all 21 known amino acids, and is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, which are beneficial to hair and scalp health.
The CBD used in all EMERA products is derived from the stem and stalk of the hemp plant. Because of that, it is THC-free and non-psychotic.
We use 20 mg of CBD in our 8 oz. Shampoo and Conditioner, 2 oz. Scalp Therapy, and 4 oz. Detangler. The 2 oz. Nourishing CBD Serum, which is a leave-in product, contains 10 mg of CBD.
CBD is rich with nutrients including all 21 known amino acids, plentiful antioxidants and essential fatty acids like Omega 3, 6 and 9, that are crucial to promoting healthy hair and scalp. The amino acids help to strengthen and nourish hair, restore scalp balance, and in doing so, promote healthy hair growth, while the essential fatty acids lock in moisture and give hair and scalp needed hydration. CBD is also known for its calming and soothing benefits, which can help to alleviate common dry scalp conditions. The antioxidants in the CBD, along with other botanicals in every EMERA product, give hair and scalp needed protection from environmental and other everyday stresses.
