CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found within the hemp plant. CBD is one of over 100 different cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, with another being the THC cannabinoid. Although it is often mistaken, CBD products do not cause users to experience a high as they contain less than 0.2% THC in order to remain in line with UK laws. Such a small amount of THC is nowhere near enough to cause a user to experience a high. Research into the health benefits of CBD is still in its early phases and so no claims can be made, although its popularity is soaring with more and more people using it in a range of bathroom products such as CBD shampoo, CBD bath bombs and CBD soap.
What Is CBD Shampoo?
CBD shampoo is exactly what it says it is, shampoo which contains CBD.
How Do I Use CBD Shampoo?
CBD shampoo is designed to be applied exactly like regular shampoos are. Simply apply a small amount to wet hair, gently massaging it into your scalp. You should leave it in your hair for around a minute before then rinsing with water.
How Does CBD Shampoo Work?
When the shampoo is massaged into the head, the CBD is absorbed into the hair follicles and the scalp where the CBD then interacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the skin. The CBD does not enter the bloodstream unlike many other methods of CBD consumption, and you will only feel the effects on the head.
How Much CBD Shampoo Should I Use?
Using too much shampoo could actually be counter productive for your hair and so it is important to get it right. When deciding how much CBD to use you should use a similar amount to what you would use with regular shampoo. The longer your hair the more you will need to use and vice-versa, but roughly women should use around 10ml and men should use a little less, with around 5ml to 7.5ml being sufficient. Other factors may also play a part in determining how much shampoo to use, such as your hair type and texture, or if you use any products in it during the day.
How Often Should I Use CBD Shampoos?
How often you should use CBD shampoo is completely down to personal preference and what works for your hair, as everyone's hair is different and responds differently. For some, using it daily will provide best results whereas for others you may want to use it every few days. The best advice is to just use it as often as you would use regular shampoo.
Is CBD Shampoo Good For My Hair?
We do not claim that CBD shampoo can treat, prevent or cure any hair or skin conditions you may have, however it may help to promote healthier hair. The main reason is because CBD can maintain moisture levels within the hair. Proteins and fatty acids within the hemp plant (the plant from which CBD is derived) may help to maintain the moisture within the hair and hydrate it. The amino acids in the CBD may also encourage healthier hair as they can prevent split ends and make the hair naturally shinier.
Will CBD Shampoo Dry Out My Skin?
CBD shampoos will not dry out your skin. Although we each have different skin, our customers do not report any excessive dryness as a result from using CBD shampoos. They will however leave your skin invigorated with pleasant fragrances and essential oils.
Can CBD Shampoo Help Hair Growth?
We do not claim that CBD can help hair growth. If you are experiencing hair loss we would recommend consulting a specialist to determine the cause and a potential solution to prevent it.
Is CBD Shampoo Good For Dandruff?
Early research into CBD has shown that it may help to reduce inflammation on the scalp which could be beneficial for treating dandruff. However, it should be noted that this is early research and more research is needed to confirm this link.
Is CBD Shampoo Legal In The UK?
Yes, in the UK CBD shampoo is legal so long as it contains less than 0.2% THC. All of our shampoos meet this guideline and are therefore 100% legal.
Will CBD Shampoo Get Me High?
No, CBD shampoo will not get you high. The substance which is responsible for providing a high within the cannabis plant is THC. CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC, which is far too small an amount to cause users to experience a high.
Will CBD Cause Me To Fail A Drugs Test?
It is extremely unlikely that CBD will cause you to fail a drugs test, although we cannot provide any guarantees. Firstly, a drugs test tests for the presence of THC. CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC and so therefore this small amount would be extremely unlikely to be detected on a drugs test. It is important to note that with CBD shampoo the CBD is not absorbed into the bloodstream and therefore the THC that it may contain will not be possible to detect. However, it is possible that the shampoo could enter your eyes or mouth and therefore enter your bloodstream. It is therefore extremely unlikely but not impossible that you could fail a drugs test from using CBD shampoo. If you are concerned about THC in your system and passing a drugs test then we would recommend you choose a CBD shampoo which contains zero THC.
How Much CBD Is There Per Bottle?
We have a range of shampoos which each contain a different amount of CBD within the bottle. Some of our shampoos contain as little as 20mg of CBD, whereas others contain 200mg. Generally speaking, the more CBD within the bottle the more expensive the product is.
Can I Use CBD Shampoo With Dyed Hair?
You should consult the packaging of each individual product to determine whether it is suitable for use with dyed hair. Some products will be suitable and will be displayed as such.
Can I Use Conditioner With CBD Shampoo?
Yes, you may use conditioner with CBD shampoo. You may even want to find yourself a CBD conditioner. However, you may find that you no longer require a conditioner so you will need to judge for yourself whether you feel one is needed.
How Should I Store It?
CBD shampoo should be stored in a cool, dry place to prevent the CBD from degrading. You should also take care not to keep it in direct sunlight. Your bottle may contain a use by date which you should follow, but if not, we would recommend using it within 12 months once it has been opened.
What Type of CBD Is Best?
When selecting the right CBD shampoo product for you it is important to understand the three types of CBD that the products may be. This is broad spectrum, full spectrum or CBD isolate.
With full spectrum CBD the product contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids found within the hemp plant. This includes up to 0.2% THC. This is great for people who want to benefit from the supposed entourage effect, which is the belief that the cannabinoids combine together to provide a greater effect than they would have individually. However, full spectrum CBD shampoos are not so good for people who do not want to consume THC.
Broad spectrum products on the other hand only contain a broad spectrum of cannabinoids from the hemp plant. This means the THC cannabinoid is completely removed. These types of CBD shampoo are great for people who want to benefit from the entourage effect but do not want to consume THC.
Lastly, CBD isolate products contain only the CBD cannabinoid from the hemp plant, and no other cannabinoids. These are suitable for people who only want to consume CBD and no other natural cannabinoids.
What Are Fatty Acids?
CBD shampoo products contain omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Fatty acids help to protect, nourish, and encourage shinier hair.

Like with normal shampoos, you should be careful not to get CBD shampoo in your eyes. Should it accidentally make contact with your eyes then you should immediately rinse them with water.
