What are cannabis suppositories?
Cannabis suppositories are a type of medical cannabis administration that offers a number of potential benefits. These include local targeted relief and avoiding the potential negative effects of smoking. Cannabis suppositories are also effective at bypassing the first-pass metabolism, which allows for greater bioavailability of THC and other cannabinoids.
Why make cannabis suppositories?
Cannabis suppositories offer a unique way to consume cannabis that has a wide range of potential benefits. For one, cannabis suppositories bypass the liver and are absorbed directly into the bloodstream, which means that they can offer much higher bioavailability than other methods of consumption. In addition, cannabis suppositories can be a great option for those who are looking for relief from pain, inflammation, or other local conditions.
What do you need to make cannabis suppositories?
To make cannabis suppositories, you will need the following supplies:
-Cannabis oil or butter
-A small, clean bottle with a lid (such as a pill bottle)
-A rectal syringe (available at most pharmacies)
-A small funnel
-Cocoa butter or another type of hard fatty oil (optional)
1. Place the funnel into the bottle.
2. Measure out the desired amount of cannabis oil or butter and add it to the funnel. If using cocoa butter, melt it and mix it with the cannabis oil or butter before adding it to the funnel.
3. Using the rectal syringe, push the mixture from the funnel into the bottle. Fill the syringe as needed until all of the mixture is in the bottle.
4. Remove the funnel and screw on the lid. Store in a cool, dark place until ready to use.
How to make cannabis suppositories?
Cannabis suppositories are a great way to medicate without smoking or vaporizing. They are also effective in treating a variety of conditions, including pain, inflammation, cramps, and more. Making your own cannabis suppositories is easy and only requires a few ingredients.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Suppositories are most commonly made with coconut oil, as it is solid at room temperature but melts quickly once inserted into the body. You can also use cocoa butter, which has a similar effect.
To make your suppositories, start by decarboxylating your cannabis. This process activates the THC and other cannabinoids in the plant material, making them more effective when medicating. You can learn how to decarboxylate cannabis here.
Once your cannabis is decarboxylated, grind it into a fine powder using a coffee grinder or food processor. The finer the better, as this will make it easier to break up when inserting the suppository.
Next, melt your coconut oil in a double boiler or in the microwave. If using the microwave, heat in short increments so as not to burn the oil. Once melted, stir in your ground cannabis until it is fully combined.
Pour the mixture into your suppository mold (you can find these online or at some health food stores) and place them in the fridge to harden for at least an hour. Once they are solidified, pop them out of the mold and store them in a cool, dark place. They will keep for up to six months when stored properly.
To use, simply insert the suppository into the rectum (or vagina if you are treating endometriosis or another condition) and wait for it to melt completely before removing. The effects should be felt within 20-30 minutes and will last for several hours depending on your dose.
How to store cannabis suppositories?
Cannabis suppositories can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to six months. Be sure to keep them in a dark spot, as light can degrade the THC and CBD content. For long-term storage, you can keep them in the fridge or freezer.
How to use cannabis suppositories?
Cannabis suppositories are a great way to consume cannabis if you don’t want to smoke or vape it. They’re also a good option for people who can’t or don’t want to consume cannabis edibles.
Suppositories are small, solid dosages of medication that are inserted into the body cavity, typically the rectum or vagina. Cannabis suppositories are made by infusing cannabis into a variety of different oils or fats, such as coconut oil, cocoa butter, or beeswax.
Cannabis suppositories offer a number of benefits over other methods of consumption. First, they provide a very direct and effective way to consume cannabis. The cannabinoids in the suppository are absorbed through the tissue lining the body cavity, directly into the bloodstream. This provides quick relief for conditions like pain, cramps, and inflammation.
Second, cannabis suppositories are discrete and easy to use. They can be inserted quickly and discreetly, without drawing attention to yourself.
Finally, cannabis suppositories offer an alternative for people who cannot or do not want to smoke or vape cannabis. If you have lung issues or simply don’t like smoking, cannabis suppositories can provide relief without having to inhale any smoke or vapor.
If you’re interested in trying cannabis suppositories, there are a few things you should know before getting started. In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about using cannabis suppositories, including how to make them and how to use them safely and effectively.
What are the benefits of using cannabis suppositories?
There are many benefits of using cannabis suppositories. They are a great alternative to smoking, and they offer a very high bioavailability of THC and CBD. Suppositories also bypass the first-pass metabolism, meaning that more of the active ingredients are absorbed into the body. This makes them ideal for people who cannot or do not want to smoke cannabis.
What are the side effects of using cannabis suppositories?
Cannabis suppositories are small, bullet-shaped doses of cannabis that are designed to be inserted vaginally or rectally. Unlike smoking or vaporizing cannabis, which deliver THC (the main psychoactive component of cannabis) directly to the lungs, using a suppository allows THC to be absorbed through the walls of the vagina or rectum and delivered directly to the bloodstream. This provides a much more effective (and longer-lasting) way to medicate than smoking or vaporizing, and is especially useful for those who cannot (or should not) inhale cannabis smoke or vapor.
Cannabis suppositories can be made at home using coconut oil, cocoa butter, and a high-quality cannabis extract or oil. They are typically inserted using a small, torpedo-shaped applicator and can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Side effects of using cannabis suppositories are generally mild and may include temporary discomfort during insertion, light spotting or bleeding, and increased frequency of urination. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as seizure or psychotic break have been reported. However, these are typically associated with high doses of THC and it is unlikely that they would occur with therapeutic doses of CBD-rich cannabis.
Are there any risks associated with using cannabis suppositories?
Yes, there are risks associated with using cannabis suppositories. The most common risk is that the suppository may not completely dissolve and may cause irritation or even an infection. It is important to follow the instructions on the package and to use a clean, dry finger when inserting the suppository. Other risks include possible allergic reactions to the materials used to make the suppository, such as latex.
How long do cannabis suppositories last?
Cannabis suppositories are a vaginal or rectal administration of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Typically, they are made using coconut oil or cocoa butter as a base. The duration of action for cannabis suppositories is highly variable and depends on many factors, including the amount of active ingredient (THC, CBD, etc.), the individual’s metabolism, and vaginal/rectal pH levels. In general, though, the effects of a cannabis suppository can be felt within 30-60 minutes and last 4-8 hours.
