THC and hair lossThe 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.
