Is Hair Transplant for Marijuana Users Possible?

SHIFT Clinic doesn't recommend smoking Cannabis, especially in public.
Hair Transplant for Marijuana Users - Marijuana is a drug extracted from the plant known as Cannabis sativa. It is also known by many other names such as bhang, ganja, skunk, rope, weed, grass or pot. The drug is taken mainly for relaxation or entertainment purposes, although it is also used by some people in controlled amounts for medical benefits under the supervision and prescription of a doctor. Regardless of their purpose of using the drug, marijuana users often wonder whether having it every day can lessen their chances of having a successful hair transplant in Turkey. Find out about the truth.

THC and hair loss

The active substance in this drug is a psychoactive compound known as THC (Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol) that enters the blood and overwhelms the brain with relaxing chemicals that gives a sensation of being happy. Forensic departments across the globe have tested hair samples and hair follicles to look for signs of drug abuse. Some marijuana users have reported that they experienced more oiliness in their hair and quick hair loss. This is attributed to a higher amount of THC in hair. It appears that THC is deposited in hair shafts in higher concentrations. It also reduces the elongation of hair shafts, depending on how much is entering and accumulating in the body. It also hinders the growth and multiplication of keratocytes in hair follicles. Thus, the consumption of marijuana in any form - whether in chewable form or through smoke - can lead to reduced hair growth or even hair loss as indicated through studies.

Smoking, in general, should be stopped or reduced to the minimum before and after hair tr hair transplant.

Effects of cannabinoids

Marijuana contains the chemicals known as cannabinoids, which happen to be of two forms. These are Phyto cannabinoids that are formed by cannabis as well as a few other plants. Synthetic cannabinoids are chemically produced. Endocannabinoids are naturally produced in animal and the human body. Some studies that tested the impact of these two chemicals on hair follicles showed evidence of an adverse impact on the growth of hair. Many experienced surgeons in top hair restoration clinics such as SHIFT Hair Transplant state that prolonged use of marijuana can make hair softer and lead to eventual hair loss.

Indirect loss of hair

The intake of marijuana results in higher anxiety, more activity and insomnia. It can be used a relaxant but can soon lead to stress and indirectly result in hair loss. Less sleep and food consumption can lead to higher stress and poor nutrition, and affect the success of hair transplantation. Its intake can also aggravate Alopecia areata, bald spots and other medical problems on the scalp.
