CBD Infused Shampoos And Their Benefits

Posted on

Cannabis plants produce a wide variety of compounds, but only one of them has medicinal properties — cannabidiol (CBD). Although CBD is an active compound, it is not psychoactive and cannot get you high because it does not contain THC. This means that CBD does not interfere with your mental state.

CBD has been shown to have many health benefits and can be used as a medicine for various conditions. Additionally, the compound can be added to several cosmetic and personal health formulations, including shampoo.

Here is a bit of information about CBD-infused shampoo and some of the benefits that it offers.

Does the CBD in CBD-Infused Shampoo Come From Marijuana Plants?

The CBD in CBD-infused shampoo comes from hemp plants and not marijuana plants.

Marijuana is a cannabis plant. However, so is hemp.  Nevertheless, the two plants differ in the amount of THC that they contain. Hemp only contains minute amounts of the psychoactive substance; marijuana contains much more. Thus, hemp products are not associated with intoxication.

What Are the Benefits of CBD-infused Shampoo?

CBD is used to treat a variety of conditions and symptoms, including chronic pain and inflammation. Shampoo that is infused with CBD offers the following benefits:

  • Hair growth. Hair growth is optimized when the scalp is healthy. CBD shampoo promotes balanced sebum production for better scalp health.
  • Reduced hair loss. The CBD in the shampoo may help minimize the production of DHT from testosterone. High levels of DHT are associated with hair loss.
  • Improved hair quality. The shampoo nourishes the follicles to aid in the production of shiny, healthy strands.
  • Reduced itchiness of the scalp. CBD is anti-inflammatory. It calms the scalp and reduces the itchiness of inflammatory conditions.
  • Less dandruff. The shampoo helps to moisturize the scalp, reducing dandruff.
  • Relief from scalp psoriasis. Scalp psoriasis, which causes the formation of plaques or patches of thickened skin, occurs because of an inflammatory response. CBD helps calm the inflammation and offers relief.

How Do CBD-infused Shampoos Work?

The body has a system of receptors called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system helps the body maintain a state of balance. The receptors are located throughout the body in areas, such as the skin, nerves, and follicles.

CBD shampoos are massaged into the scalp before they are rinsed during the cleansing process. The massaging of the product into the scalp helps the follicles to absorb the CBD, allowing the compound to interact with the ECS receptors.
