But what are the benefits of adding CBD to your hair care regime?
What is CBD?
CBD is a compound found from the cannabis plant that is non-psychoactive meaning it will not make you feel intoxicated like the compound THC (also found in the cannabis plant).
CBD comes in three forms, CBD isolate, CBD Broad Spectrum and CBD Full Spectrum. CBD Isolate is the purest form of CBD with no other compounds or THC. CBD Broad spectrum is less refined and contains other beneficial compounds and terpenes from the cannabis plant. However it is also free from THC. CBD Full spectrum is similar to CBD Broad Spectrum however it does contain THC.
CBD holds many health and wellness benefits from inside the body to outside on the skin and scalp. It interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system which is responsible for regulation of many organs and features in the body. The endocannabinoid system can also be found on the skin where CBD interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors.
