A CBD suppository is a small cone or bullet-shaped device that is inserted into your body to deliver an infused medication. They can be helpful for many different things and are a great way to use cannabis without getting high.
They can also help to relieve pain in the sexy area, especially if you suffer from dyspareunia (painful sex) or have a medical condition that causes pelvic inflammation, like endometriosis. They can also enhance libido, says Sarah Reeves, an herbalist and wellness expert at Wake + Bake.
You can buy CBD suppositories that are pre-made, but it's more fun to make your own. This way, you can control how much THC is in your product and create a more customized experience for yourself.
Typically, you'll want to combine hemp-derived CBD oil and cocoa butter together. You'll need to measure how much of each you'll need per suppository mold, depending on how many you're making.
Once the oil and butter are melted, pour it into your silicone suppository mold. You'll need one that's tall enough to hold the suppository in place, but not so high that it will tip over while you're using it.
You can insert the suppository into your vagina, rectum, or both, depending on how you'd like to use it. For rectal insertion, use the pointed end of the suppository to push it about 2.5-4 cm into your rectum, past the anal sphincter muscle. Then, lie down for a couple of minutes and clench your sphincter muscle to ensure that the suppository stays in place.
