What is a CBD suppository, and how do they work?
The process of creating CBD suppositories begins with organic hemp extract oil mixing with a base oil of coconut oil or cocoa butter. This CBD base is then placed into oval-shaped molds and frozen in a freezer until the oils harden so they can then become vaginal or rectal suppositories. After the suppository is inserted, the ingredients are absorbed into the bloodstream, wherein they completely bypass the GI tract and liver.
CBD suppositories do not have any psychoactive effects, as they are hemp-derived and only contain 0.3% THC or lower. The beauty of CBD suppositories is their bioavailability, allowing for larger concentrations of hemp extract to hit the bloodstream. CBD suppositories are typically used to ease women’s pain from conditions such as menstrual cramps, pelvic pain, or even sexual dysfunction. You can experience the same benefits of CBD with rectal suppositories.
How do you use CBD suppositories?
It is recommended to refrigerate your suppositories before use. Wash your hands before and after application to ensure good hygiene and prevent contamination. Then, at the V-shaped cut, tear the foil shell lengthwise. Lubricate the suppository with a small amount of water, and follow the insertion instructions below based on your preferred method.
For vaginal insertion: Create an environment where you are comfortable and assume a reclining position. Then carefully insert the suppository high in the vagina, using either your finger or a tampon applicator.
For rectal insertion: Insert the suppository just past the sphincter. Wait at least 15-20 minutes before passing a bowel movement to ensure the CBD is fully absorbed and taking effect.
Are CBD suppositories safe?
Because the CBD suppositories we carry are made from quality hemp extract that has been third-party lab tested, we can safely guarantee that they are free from harmful chemicals and toxins that may otherwise cause adverse reactions.
What are the benefits of CBD suppositories?
CBD suppositories are a useful alternative for individuals unable to use oral methods of administration due to nausea and vomiting, injury, or other gastrointestinal conditions.
What are Endoca CBD suppositories made from?
Endoca is an organic CBD brand that manufactures all-natural hemp products in GMP certified labs. Endoca suppositories are made with two key ingredients: organic-certified hemp extracts and organic coconut oil. The coconut oil is meant to aid in both absorption and insertion. Each individually wrapped “bullet” is made with 50 mg of CBD for a total of 500mg per box. They are also formulated with natural plant waxes, flavonoids, terpenes, and nutrients.
If you break the CBD suppository, they may be reheated within the shells by placing them in a sealed, waterproof bag and submerging them in warm water. After they have been melted, they can then be reformed in the refrigerator. If you notice any air bubbles that have been formed in the suppositories, this is completely normal and no cause for concern.
Can CBD suppositories help with menstrual cramps and pelvic pain?
While no brand of CBD suppository can claim to treat or cure any particular medical condition, some customers use CBD suppositories for their menstrual cramps, as well as pelvic pain from endometriosis. Because CBD naturally reduces inflammation, you can potentially find some relief from endometriosis when you use CBD suppositories.
Our customers also have been known to take CBD suppositories for dyspareunia—or painful intercourse—a condition affecting as many as 75% of individuals that can be caused by a wide range of issues, such as pelvic floor dysfunction, menopause, uterine fibroids, interstitial cystitis, vulvodynia, and vaginismus, among others.
In the end, we advise that you do your own research on findings about CBD’s application for pain before taking CBD suppositories for your condition.
How long do CBD suppositories take to work?
As mentioned previously, CBD suppositories completely bypass the digestive system, so the effects usually occur much more quickly than other methods of administration. Typically, you will start to notice results within just 10-15 minutes and will last from 4-8 hours depending on your metabolism and tolerance to CBD.
