Smoking Weed Could Potentially Make Your Hair Grow Faster Then Normal
What if you could cure slow hair growth and baldness by becoming a stoner? Is it possible? Let’s find out.
Everyday more studies about the potential health benefits of marijuana are coming out to the public. So far, there is a lot of information out there pointing to the idea that there are in fact MANY health benefits to human body when consuming marijuana. Is hair growth one of those benefits? Or is this all just bulls***?
According to an article from hairgrowth.tv it could be…
“Smoking pot causes us to have lower testosterone and higher estrogen levels present in our bodies. And this is often more noticeable in males than in females. Higher levels of estrogen are known to cause rapid hair growth and lowered levels of testosterone are a common issue for those experiencing male pattern baldness as we get up in age. And since the bud of the female marijuana plant is what eventually becomes distributed as a drug, this shouldn’t surprise anybody.”
The article goes on to say…
“Another way that marijuana is related to hair growth is the fact that marijuana speeds up our metabolism. And this too can help our hair grow much faster. But be aware that by boosting your metabolic rate, you can also experience a higher rate of aging. This side effect is prevalent in people of all ages and genders who experience faster metabolisms. So if you are a regular smoker of marijuana, be advised that this can be a cause for hair growth and loss. And of course our bodies do not all react to substances in the same way. So it is also possible to consume marijuana without seeing any of these possible side effects.”
Another ganja friendly website shared a similar viewpoint.
An article by marijuanapackaging.com suggests 3 reasons why marijuana could improve hair growth.
- Estrogen Boost: “Firstly, marijuana can lower testosterone and increase estrogen levels. High estrogen levels causes hair growth.”
- Metabolism Boost: “Another way that marijuana can be linked to hair growth is through the metabolism. Marijuana benefits include a faster metabolic rate.”
- Reduced Stress Levels: “A final proposition for how marijuana may increase hair growth is through its effect on stress levels. One big cause of hair loss is stress. Marijuana benefits most definitely include positive effects on mood, depression, insomnia and stress. “
So maybe there is something to this theory after all.
Of course you should do more research on the subject before you smoke a pound of weed thinking you will have hair like Bob Marley. There’s obviously a science to this.
Until next time. Stay up, Stay Loc’d, Stay Tru!

Marijuana and Hair
People have been advocating for the legalization of medicinal and/or recreational marijuana for decades and there have been many claims about what good it can do. According to page on WebMD.com, more than half of the states in the US have legalized medical marijuana in one form or another.
They say “The marijuana plant contains more than 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids. Each one has a different effect on the body.”
They go on to list a number of different conditions that it can be used to treat, including:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Appetite loss
- Crohn’s disease
- Eating disorders such as anorexia
- Mental health conditions like schizophrenia and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Muscle spasms
And research suggests that cannabinoids, which are the active chemicals in medical marijuana, might:
- Reduce anxiety
- Reduce inflammation and relieve pain
- Control nausea and vomiting caused by cancer chemotherapy
- Kill cancer cells and slow tumor growth
- Relax tight muscles in people with MS
- Stimulate appetite and improve weight gain in people with cancer and AIDS
But can it help grow hair? According to https://www.marijuanapackaging.com/blog/do-marijuana-benefits-include-hair-growth, “Some users who consume marijuana 3 to 5 times a week have reported noticing that their hair grows a lot faster”. They go on to talk about marijuana’s effects on hormone levels which can help or hurt hair depending on the balance, marijuana’s effects on metabolism, and marijuana’s effects on stress relief – stress is indeed a well-known major cause of hair loss. So in theory, if marijuana helps reduce stress, can it stall hair loss?
“Marijuana benefits most definitely include positive effects on mood, depression, insomnia, and stress. Marijuana helps many people cope with stress, eradicating it almost instantly after consumption. It is also a powerful anti-depressant that helps to stabilize stress levels in general. Stress is the cause of multiple physical ailments in general so weed can become a way of easing the pressures of life on the body. Hair loss can be a manifestation of stress and can possibly be avoided through marijuana use.”
But as with just about every fully legal prescription and over-the-counter medication and various vitamins and supplements, there are possible side-effects to using marijuana. WebMD says that these include:
- Bloodshot eyes
- Fast heartbeat
- Low blood pressure
And “The drug can also affect judgment and coordination, which could lead to accidents and injuries. When used during the teenage years when the brain is still developing, marijuana might affect IQ and mental function.”
People against the use of marijuana say that it is a “gateway drug” which can be addictive and lead to people using too much of it, or moving on to something stronger that is not legal and can be much more dangerous.
