The most watched episode in Shark Tank history featured sisters Donna and Rosy Khalife, chemists from MIT. Securing the biggest Shark Tank funding in the show’s history—$3.4 million, to be exact—the women had developed CBD Gummies of a reported special blend. Six months later, post their re-brand and re-packaging, the sisters are about to launch their PureKana CBD Gummies, a product that apparently can improve permanent hair growth.
It seems that the Khalife sisters have created the first reuptake inhibitor. These RI’s work by “blocking the inhibiting the plasmalemmal transporter-mediated reuptake of a neurotransmitter from the synapse into the pre-synaptic neuron.” In layman’s terms, this blocking helps in hair growth.
We reported before on the possible hair growth properties in CBD (see here).
Testing the Khalife sister’s product’s validity, Shark Tank took David Brown, a 42-year-old production crew member on the show, as a volunteer. Brown has been slowly balding for near the past decade and, after a month, saw sure progress in regrowth by ingesting the PureKana CBD gummies.
Gummies have been said to reduce anxiety, and pain, offer anti-oxidant support, regulate high blood sugar, and offer many other benefits. Why not hair growth? The only problem here is that there has been no long-term scientific study on this gummy side-effect (the product is simply too new for this to have happened). So far, we only have small individual test studies, like Mr. Brown’s, to go by.
As always at our Paramus NJ hair restoration salon, we are hopeful about this or any other hair growth solution. These kinds of discoveries won’t put us out of business; in fact, they will only help in the hair restoration and replacement work that we do. Scientific advances have brought us to the point we are presently at, have time-tested the safe applications and products we use at Guci Image, and surely every step forward need be championed.
We offer all the best of luck and hearty thanks to people like Donna and Rosy Khalife.
