In this blog article were going to discuss the benefits of CBD for hair growth.
If you are looking for thick, lush hair you are definitely not alone. There are plenty of treatments for hair loss out there, ranging from transplants to medications. The only issue is they are often expensive and come with negative side effects. Fortunately, there is an all-natural solution that often gets overlooked….. CBD!
CBD has become a very popular solution to alleviate pain, anxiety, and depression, but hair growth is another lesser-known benefit.
What Causes Hair Loss
A Harvard Study showed one-third of women and men in the United States experience hair loss at one point in their lives. Furthermore, as many as two-thirds suffer hair thinning or bald spots (1). Studies show hair loss happens mainly due to inflammation, stress, and poor sleep (2), (3), (4).
CBD Reduces Inflammation
Chronic inflammation is not just bad for the body, it has a negative, impact on hair growth and health. However, many treatments on the market today aimed at reducing scalp inflammation are harsh on the hair shaft and decrease shine and manageability (6). In conclusion, they won’t give you that healthy mane you’re looking for!
Studies have shown CBD may be able to create a healthier environment for hair to grow on the scalp by repressing inflammation in the body. In addition, a reduction in inflammation has shown to be effective in treating acne (7).
CBD Lowers Stress Levels
When it’s under stress, your body creates a hormone called cortisol. Increased levels of Cortisol have been linked to hair loss, weight gain, and insomnia (8).
CBD is quickly becoming a popular remedy to alleviate anxiety. Let’s face it, we could benefit from a little Zen in our lives! Recent trials have shown CBD as an effective treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder (9). In conclusion, taking CBD may be able to stop hair from falling out by lowering cortisol levels.
CBD Promotes Restful Sleep
Sleep plays a crucial role in overall health. In other words, a lack of sleep has both a direct and indirect impact on hair loss (10).
Not getting the proper amount of sleep leads to increased levels of stress. As we know from above, stress causes cortisol to build in the body. Therefore, causing hair loss (11).
Adult stem cells responsible for the hair growth cycle rely heavily on the internal circadian clock. Therefore, a disturbance in the sleep cycle can have a negative impact on the function of hair follicles where hair growth is started (12).
Several trials have shown CBD to be an effective sleep aid. Researchers believe that CBD interacts with the serotonin receptors in the brain to promote a night of restful, sound sleep. In a study published by the journal of clinical pharmacology, subjects given CBD slept better than those given a placebo (13).
The Best Type of CBD For Hair Growth
Not all CBD is created equal! In order to maximize its hair growth benefits, one must use high-quality CBD products. For instance, Priscotty Pure’s CBD is made from organically grown hemp and goes through a proprietary nano-emulsification process that allows the body to better absorb the CBD. As a result, studies show it is 10x more effective than any other CBD product on the market! Which means….. MORE HAIR GROWTH!!
