CBD suppositories are capsules that are designed to be inserted into the rectum or vagina to provide fast, soothing relief from a variety of ailments. CBD suppositories dissolve once inserted, allowing your body to quickly and efficiently absorb the CBD. Formulations for CBD suppositories are simple, generally comprising CBD oils in natural carrier oils that are safe for internal use.
CBD suppositories are most helpful for those who want the potential therapeutic effects of CBD oil but may not be able to take CBD orally. Furthermore, unlike tablets, tinctures, and other oral forms of CBD, suppositories generally act faster and offer greater bioavailability. This comes from the fact that suppositories donâ€™t have to go through your entire digestive system, which takes time and naturally breaks down CBD in the process.
CBD suppositories can also be used vaginally to provide localized relief for menstrual cramps and symptoms of menopause and post-menopause. When inserted rectally, CBD suppositories also provide localized relief from pain and cramps associated with inflammatory bowel conditions.
To use a CBD suppository, lie on your side with your knees tucked up to your chest. Carefully insert the suppository into your rectum about 2.5 to 4 cm. Stay on your side for a few minutes to ensure that the suppository stays inside your rectum.
For vaginal use, you can insert the suppository similar to a tampon, but most packaging suggests lying on your back with your knees pulled up to your chest.
Serving sizes for CBD suppositories can vary from product to product and person to person. You can generally find suppositories with CBD concentrations as low as 25 milligrams. As always, if youâ€™re new to CBD, start low before working your way up.
Itâ€™s best to store suppositories made from natural coconut oil in the freezer, to ensure they are solid for time of insertion.
