Cannabis oil in perfume

Fatwaa ID: 2198

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

If any perfume has cannabis oil, does it make the perfume naajis?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Cannabis oil in itself is not najis. It is a pure ingredient. It may be used in perfumes and other products. However, if it contains thc, then it will not be permissible to use it. That being said, if the thc free product gives a repulsive smell, then it should be avoided.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
