You may think of cannabis as a pain reliever or sleep aid, but you may not have previously thought of it before as a hair treatment. Hemp oil contains omegas 3 and 6, as well as a number of essential amino acids, which add proteins to help strengthen and replenish your locks. All natural and full of fatty oils, hemp won’t dry out your hair, but rather reinvigorate it, minus the nasty chemicals found in most hair products. Hemp oil is high in vitamin E and zinc, as well, which stimulates hair growth and prevents hair loss by improving blood flow via capillary stimulation. And while hair care is one of the plant’s lesser known applications, there are still a few products out there that incorporate cannabis and other super foods or vitamins into the mix.
