When you think about using CBD, suppositories may not be the first thing that comes to mind.
But, there are many advantages to the rectal administration of CBD versus other, more traditional, routes.
Benefits of CBD Suppositories:
CBD cannabis suppositories make it possible to avoid drug degradation in the gastrointestinal tract and skip the first-pass metabolism in the liver. Because of this, the cannabinoids are able to reach the blood in much higher concentrations.
What's more, the rectal administration of CBD allows for a greater proportion of CBD to reach the bloodstream.
Rectal administration offers a much faster uptake than oral administration (approximately 10 minutes, on average).
With CBD suppositories, initial effects will most often be noticed within 10-15 minutes of application, and these effects will usually last 4-8 hours depending on physiology and individual tolerance levels.
CBD suppositories can be used to refine and fine-tune existing therapeutic regimens.
If you have been unable to use cannabis or CBD products because you have been unable to administer through ingestion or inhalation, CBD suppositories can be a real game changer.
For rectal use or as a vaginal capsule.
- Refrigerate before using. Use good hygiene and wash hands before and after use.
- Tear the plastic shell lengthwise beginning at the "V" shape cut found at the pointed end of the suppository.
- Apply a light coating of water to lubricate the CBD suppository before attempting to insert.
FOR RECTAL INSERTION: insert suppository beyond the sphincter muscle. Try to wait 15 to 20 minutes before making another bowel movement.
If you find broken CBD suppositories they can be repaired by reheating them in the shells in a sealable, waterproof bag in warm water until melted. Then, they can be reformed and cooled in a refrigerator. Occasional air bubbles in CBD suppositories are normal and do not indicate a loss of product.
FOR VAGINAL INSERTION: CBD Suppository to be inserted high in the vagina. This is best done from a reclined position.
