Smoking Weed Could Potentially Make Your Hair Grow Faster Then Normal

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 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 suggests 3 reasons why marijuana could improve hair growth.

  1. Estrogen Boost: “Firstly, marijuana can lower testosterone and increase estrogen levels. High estrogen levels causes hair growth.”
  2. Metabolism Boost: “Another way that marijuana can be linked to hair growth is through the metabolism. Marijuana benefits include a faster metabolic rate.”
  3. 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.
