What do the scholars and muftis of the noble Shari’ah say regarding this matter; In one of your answers you said small amounts of cannabis oil is permitted, I wanted to ask if smoking small amounts of cannabis allowed too? Also, can we use cannabis oil for other reasons such as to prevent hair loss and to help loose weight?

Smoking cannabis is impermissible because it intoxicates the senses which is harām even if taken in small amounts. A small amount of cannabis oil is excused because it is believed to have medicinal benefits.
Therefore, it is permissible to use cannabis oil to help with hair loss and to loose weight.
