You should, of course, have any serious or infectious complication of razor burn or razor bumps evaluated promptly by your healthcare professional. But if you are experiencing a recurring, mild inflammatory reaction nearly every time you shave, there’s a lot you can do to help ease the burn. Before you reach for Over-the-Counter (OTC) pain medications, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), steroidal creams or even physician-prescribed analgesics, steroids, or anti-inflammatories, you may want to consider other options to help relieve the discomfort and irritation of razor burn.

Cannabinoids are naturally effective in our bodies because, throughout our evolutionary development, we have been hardwired to gain the benefits of the cannabis sativa plant through the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex signaling network within the mammalian body that functions as a lock and key mechanism when cannabinoids are present or introduced into the bloodstream. These receptors exist throughout the body — nervous, musculoskeletal, digestive, immune, endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, and other systems — and are the reason why cannabinoids can have such diverse and profound effects. All mammals, including humans and companion animals, have an ECS, and the body produces “endo” (internal) cannabinoids (naturally occurring substances such as anandamide) that operate to keep the body’s systems in balance. However, when an external force such as injury, illness, or stress (think 2020 here) is introduced, our body’s own endocannabinoids may be depleted, resulting in an interruption to homeostasis that can manifest as anxiety, pain, inflammation, sleep disturbance, compromised immune function, and more. CBD and related “phyto” (plant) cannabinoids are natural compounds that can supplement the body’s own cannabinoids and lock into our cannabinoid receptors to address the imbalance and restore homeostasis.
