Assalamualaykum mufti sahib. Can you please tel if it is allowed to use face cream made with cannabis sativa seed oil? Jazakillahu khairan
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
In principle, cannabis sativa seed and the oil therefrom are pure. It does not contain any THC. Accordingly, it is permissible to use face creams that contain this ingredient provided that the other ingredients are also pure.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
