The Complete Scoop on CBD Suppositories
CBD Suppositories are a safe and comfortable alternative to other delivery methods for CBD. They are also ideal for relieving occasional back pain caused by menstruation.
Rectal administration of cannabis offers many advantages over other administration methods. Sometimes, oral intake is restricted both before and after surgery. Other times, the oral route may be impaired due to extenuating conditions, such as vomiting, injured jaw or throat, or gastrointestinal difficulties. For all of these circumstances, anal CBD suppositories make it possible to avoid drug degradation in the digestive tract and bypass first-pass metabolism in the liver. This allows the cannabinoids to reach the blood in much higher concentrations and potency.
Individuals who have previously refrained from using CBD due to ingestion or inhalation restrictions can now experience the therapeutic benefits of CBD for the first time via cannabis suppositories with absolutely no impact on their digestive or respiratory systems.
Rectal administration allows a higher proportion of CBD to eventually reach the bloodstream when compared to other methods. The effects of CBD via rectal administration can often be detected in as little as ten minutes. The onset rate and reliability of CBD suppositories make them an ideal addition to both new and pre-existing therapeutic regimens. They are the perfect solution for those who must (or choose to) circumvent the CBD hitting the digestive or respiratory systems. The effects of CBD Suppositories can last 4-8 hours, depending on individual physiology and tolerance for cannabis.
Users should be aware that diarrhea, fecal matter, and tumors/cysts on the rectal wall may delay or entirely prevent CBD from being adequately absorbed into the bloodstream. Rectal dryness may also reduce the efficiency of CBD suppositories. It’s highly recommended to remain well-hydrated by maintaining a healthy consumption of both water and electrolytes. If you suspect that an extenuating medical condition is causing rectal dehydration, discontinue use and consult a medical professional.
CBD Suppositories are perfect for users who are looking for rapid delivery—effects can be felt sometimes within minutes—and the higher absorption rate due to bypassing the body's digestive system. Pre and post-surgical patients may also have restrictions relating to breathing and digestive restrictions. In the case of pre-surgery, patients are instructed to fast for 24 hours. Suppositories can allow users to continue CBD therapy without having to ingest edible products orally. (Note: You must consult with your surgeon or a medical professional before using CBD suppositories before surgery).
Refrigerate before using. Thoroughly wash hands and shower before use. Wash hands again after application. Before inserting, gently tear the plastic shell lengthwise at the “V” shaped cut located at the pointed end of the suppository. Apply a light coating of cool water to lubricate the CBD suppository before inserting it. Note that broken CBD suppositories can be safely repaired by reheating in the shells in an air-tight, waterproof bag in warm water. Once melted, they can be quickly reformed and cooled in a refrigerator. Occasional air bubbles in CBD suppositories are normal and do not indicate a loss of product.
FOR RECTAL INSERTION: With clean hands, slowly insert suppository past sphincter muscle. To avoid discharge before absorption, time administration so that you can wait for a minimum of 20-30 minutes before your next bowel movement after inserting.
FOR VAGINAL INSERTION: Find a comfortable position reclining on your back. Use clean fingers to slowly insert the CBD Suppository high, towards the back of the vagina. This is best done in a reclined position.
