Why you should consider switching to CBD based hair products
In the early times, medicine-men and local healers often prescribed cannabis to their patients to sort out a hoard of medical issues – healing wounds, easing depression, and many other uses as can be seen in this article. From the early times of civilization in Egypt to the revered era of powerful medicine men of India, this versatile plant was heavily used and considered not just medicinal but also a holy herb.
In modern times, biologists, enthusiasts and researchers all over the world are trying to demystify the plant and discover more of its benefits.
CBD, for those who might be encountering these initials for the first time, basically stands for cannabidiol, which is a substance found in cannabis sativa. It is the second most prevalent extract from the plant, and it is non-psychoactive – meaning it won’t get you high.
Beyond the benefits CBD is most known for, such as helping to reduce pain, inflammation and muscle soreness. It also, surprisingly enough, is highly beneficial for your hair and scalp.
In this article, I am going to reveal some little known direct benefits you didn’t know that CBD has on your hair.
CBD contains amino-acids that are beneficial for hair growth.
According to this article CBD oil is comprised of all the essential amino acids that the human body needs, and in particular Omega 3 and 6 – which are essential for hair growth. In addition our EMERA products contain all of these beneficial ingredients!

Helps maintain a healthy scalp
The overall quality of your hair depends on the health of the hair follicle. Thus, a healthy scalp will lead to healthier hair.
CBD aids in smooth blood circulation around the scalp, and helps ensure hair follicles are properly nourished and well fed with essential nutrients. This can result in stronger, faster-growing hair.
May help reduce hair loss
Scientists and researchers believe that CBD may also help to reduce hair loss by reducing stress – which is considered a factor in alopecia. Thus, as the research study carried on in 2010 indicated, if CBD can help to relieve stress, it may help to inhibit hair loss, and promote healthy hair growth. In an article published on MedMen, they recommended our CBD Serum and Scalp therapy to start helping with hair loss immediately!
CBD helps grow stronger and healthier hair.
CBD, or cannabidiol, contains amino acids which help to infuse collagen and elastin into the body. These are vital to hair strength and resilience.
Collagen is by far the most abundant protein in the human body, and is directly responsible for taking care of many tissue cells including the skin and hair. It helps to maintain the hair follicles, keeping hair strands strong and healthy.
Elastin, as the name suggests is responsible for maintaining the shape and elasticity of hair, and thus reducing breakage, and hair loss resulting from that breakage.
CBD Helps achieve thicker, fuller-looking hair
Beyond reducing hair breakage and thus resulting hair loss, the collagen in CBD helps to plump up the hair, and increase the diameter of each hair strand, thus providing the appearance of thicker, fuller-looking hair.
CBD protect hair from strong environmental perils
Hair is one of the most exposed parts of our bodies ranging from exposure to harmful UV rays, dust and pollution. It’s at the very top of our bodies and usually gets hit the hard from UV rays, wind, and other elements of nature. All of these effects can cause hair to become overly dry and weakened over time.
CBD has high levels of antioxidants which help combat the effects of these environmental perils, helping hair stay protected. Additionally, the essential fatty acids in CBD keep hair hydrated and prevent it from excessive dryness. These nutrients, in common with vitamins such as A, B, C, D and E, among others, offer a plethora of positive benefits for your scalp and hair.
CBD helps maintain hair color
As far as amino acids go, CBD contains tyrosine, which is known to help maintain natural hair color. So, hair color stays vibrant longer. Using Tyrosine in conjunction with a simple vitamin C (supplement or topical) can have great benefits to skin and hair!
