CBD, cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid compound that naturally occurs in high concentration within the hemp plant. It does not produce psychoactive effects and will not get the user “high.” In therapeutic doses, there are no adverse side effects with using CBD. Cannabidiol works with a physiological system in the body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Hair loss and thinning are common issues that a lot of people struggle with. In fact, an estimated $1.5 billion is spent around the world trying to resolve it. Most of the time, hair loss is hereditary and comes as a result of aging. Hormonal factors can play a role during pregnancy, childbirth, menopause or problems with the thyroid.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a physiological network that maintains internal functioning and the balance of many other systems within the body. The ECS requires cannabinoids to bind to receptors CB-1 and CB-2. One cannabinoid, CBD (cannabidiol), is capable of interacting with both of these receptors and provides the ECS with the compounds needed to operate.
