CBD and Hair: Can CBD Help Hair Growth and Stop Loss?

CBD is an interesting product as it is a stand-alone product as well as an active ingredient into many cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical products. Namely, the product is known for its physical and neurological benefits related to anxiety, depression, to assist with relaxation, as well as the powerful anti-inflammatory aspects that assist with multiple applications for the skin and body, immune system, and overall health.


For this reason, CBD, which is most often derived from the hemp-plant or cannabis plant is a cannabinoid, 1 of over 100 that exist. It is a non-psychoactive natural ingredient, so how can it benefit your hair?

In recent clinical studies, the results revealed that men did slightly better than women, and the vertex area did better than the temporal areas. On average, there was a statistically significant 93.5% increase in nonvellus hair after 6 months of once daily use. All subjects had some regrowth. There were no reported adverse effects. Case Study of Hair Regrowth with Topical Cannabidiol (CBD) | Hair Transplant Forum International (

In short, CBD is a hydrator and anti-inflammatory, which relaxes muscles and skin, soothes the scalp, regulates oil production, and damaged skin with its powerful anti-inflammatory qualities, as well as effects the follicle. In general, it is a great preventative tool, its not the cure. However, it surely makes a difference, its safe to use as needed, and it works well with most haircare products, it can be dropped into any shampoo, conditioner, even masks.

Clinical studies on CBD revealed that CBD oil encourages hair growth by nourishing the scalp and strengthening the hair. CBD oil is packed with omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 acids that help improve the scalp tissue’s quality. Fatty omega acids nourish the cuticles and moisture the hair. This soothes the dryness of the scalp as the scalp absorbs nutrients and promotes hair growth. CBD oil improves blood circulation in the area near hair follicles, encouraging their growth. CBD also helps to detox the hair from dust particles and harmful chemical deposits.

Other studies conclude that CBD has great anti-inflammatory properties. This is of use for soothing eczema and scalp inflammation. Ingredients in CBD oil regulate the functioning of the immune system, calm skin inflammation and decrease hair loss. This is helpful in the treatment of conditions such as folliculitis or psoriasis. CBD also reduces dandruff and dry scalp problems by influencing the scalp’s natural sebum and oil levels. Its antimicrobial properties reduce the risk of scalp infections.


  1. CBD naturally increases antioxidants: Like vitamin A, C, etc. It helps dry scalps the same way it assists many ailments such as psoriasis and eczema. Hair issues that are triggered by inflammation, especially in women, who don’t want to use traditional medicine, can use CBD Oil to help the skin and immune system combat those issues.
  2. Choosing a CBD oil which has been mixed with Hemp Seed Oil as a base it helpful, as the Seed Oil, which doesn’t contain CBD in concentration does help with moisturizing a flaky, irritated scalp, locking in moisture in the hair and scalp. All the benefits CBD has in your face cream… by defacto works on your scalp.


As stated before, it helps your system, it is not the cure, it is a powerful catalyst. Because hair loss and irritation can be attributed to many other factors, talking with your healthcare provider about your unique situation is always the best option.


We know CBD helps the skin, but what about Hair Types?


Reducing inflammation encourages hair growth and protects hair, this is a simple fact.


Phytocompounds – antioxidant effects and antimicrobial properties


We can thank Phytocompounds for antioxidant effects and antimicrobial properties, the hemp plant accesses the CB1 and CB2 receptors at a molecular level, which includes the scalp. Generally for the Hair industry, we recommend purchasing a 30% CBD and 70% hemp oil Raw Material which can be added to 90 percent of your other ingredients giving a “3%” CBD and “7%” hemp oil mixture for the hair product formulation in general. It is generally more consistent as an emulsion.

3-4 Mg of CBD Once a Day Brings 93.5% Increase in Hair Growth

For the average consumer, you can buy a direct dropper of hemp oil mixed with CBD, such as at for just 12 euro if you would like to try first the effects on your skin, beard, face, or by injesting. Some professionals suggest the number of drops to add to your hair or hair product (6-8 drops), however, its more about the percentage than just drops. Basically, you would want a 3% emulsion for anything you use in the cosmetic realm, as its absorption is less, so to get the full value of the product the percentage needs to be higher. Therefore, if you were formulating this for yourself, you would put for example 8 drops of 5 percent CBD oil with the equivalent volume of a conditioner to get 2.5 percent CBD. If the percent was 10 percent, you can add 2 parts lotion, one part CBD oil… 30 percent oil, 9 parts to 1. I hope this is clear, you generally want to maintain between 1-3 percent, 3 being best for areas like your scalp.(3-4mg per day is the dose to work out)

The best pharma quality hempseed oil mixed with CBD is Black Sea CBD, a Romanian Wellness company that is an EU GMP CBD manufacturer that sells in bulk already to popular brand firms. They are the active ingredient provider, and are extremely affordable for purchasing directly from. (Also good bulk pricing.)

For example, you can purchase a retail 5% bottle of 10 ml of product for 11.99 euro or buy a bulk 1 liter for 300 euro. Mathematically speaking, purchasing by the liter you save by paying 300 euro versus 1200 euro… therefore if you plan on using CBD Oil a lot or adding it as an active ingredient to your products, consider the Bulk option. Although bulk pricing is not on the website, you can contact, and ask for bulk pricing of either 5, 10, 20, or 30 percent CBD oil. 300 euro per liter is a very good price for all firms looking to add CBD and hemp oil to their product lines.

Market Size & Potential

Estimated sales will top $1.9 billion by 2026. Still, it seems everyone agrees that the category is growing 20-3% a year. The market is primarily driven by growing consumer awareness regarding the benefits of CBD-infused personal care products.

There is not enough space in this column to mention all of the CBD hair and scalp care products on the market. It was only a matter of time until CBD entered the hair care market. CBD is essential to the human endocannabinoid system—an entirely different human hormonal system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) regulates multiple physiological processes, including cutaneous cell growth and differentiation. In dermatology, due to the combined lipostatic, antiproliferative and anti-inflammatory effects, CBD has potential as a therapeutic agent for the treatment of acne vulgaris. Research has also revealed that CBD reduces itching, and has anti-aging and anti-malignancy effects. As I emphasized in the “Skinification of Hair Care,” June 2021, the scalp is skin. Hair emerges from the scalp, and only a healthy scalp can grow healthy hair. This is true for CBD as well—it’s beneficial cutaneous effects extend to the scalp and hair.
