HOW TO INSERT SUPPOSITORIES IN RECTUM
Placement matters: Suppository absorption changes depending on where the placement is in the colon and that is because of two major rectal veins.
• Lie on your side or starting on all fours, lower your chest to the ground and raise your butt in the air
• Use a small amount of coconut oil to lubricate your fingers
• If the suppository starts to melt, run it under cold water until it hardens again
• Insert the suppository in your rectum
• Lie on your side or back for 5-10 minutes or until you feel comfortable
HOW TO INSERT SUPPOSITORIES IN VAGINA
In the vagina, suppositories melt and are absorbed into the bloodstream by the vaginal mucosal surface. The intravaginal use of cannabinoids, including cannabidiol (CBD) and THC, is potent due to the dense amount of cannabinoid receptors found in the pelvis, ovaries, and uterus. Suppositories are ideal for site-specific ailments, which means they are most effective at relieving pain in the pelvic area. Suppositories are ideal for treating the symptoms of Endometriosis, PMS, Menstrual Cramps, Hip and lower back pain, and other pelvic inflammations.
Vaginal suppositories are minimally psychoactive. Few women describe feeling a psychoactive component with vaginal insertion of suppositories but it is much more common for their to be no “stoned” feeling while providing localized pain relief.
- To put a suppository into your vagina: Wash your hands with soap and warm water.
- Unwrap the suppository. You may break it into pieces to start to assess your individual dosing needs. Some beginners only need a portion, others with more chronic pain may require higher doses.
- Lie on your back with your knees bent toward your chest, or stand with your knees bent and your feet a few inches apart.
- Gently put the applicator into your vagina as far is it will go without feeling uncomfortable.
- Lie down for a few minutes to let the medicine absorb.
- Wash your hands again with soap and warm water. Vaginal suppositories can be messy, so you may want to wear a pad for a little while after you put one in. Thick greenish discharge is common and is a result of the medicine melting and being absorbed by the vagina.
