I know. This can be awkward… for you maybe but not for me. In fact, I have seen some pretty interesting facial expressions during these conversations, undoubtedly due to my level of comfort with the topic.
Oftentimes, people think I am a bit of an oddball because I publicly and actively advocate for cannabis suppositories. I am completely okay with this for the very important reason that the stigma surrounding cannabis suppositories is killing people.
Working at a completely medicinal dispensary, I watched a 30-year-old man avoid having major, life-changing GI tract surgery with a consistent suppository routine. His only regret was waiting so long to use them because he felt too weird to bring up his questions. With the intention of answering any silent questions you might have and inspiring experimentation, here are some tips to help make using cannabis suppositories a success.
If you’re concerned about the strength and want to start slow, use a sharp knife to cut the suppository in half lengthwise. Store whatever is not used in the fridge, in a small container or bag.
- Note: this is an excellent option if you are concerned about the physical size of your cannabis suppository.
- Bonus: you will save money.
2) Melt Factor
Suppositories are made to melt and that begins to happen often right out of the package. For an easy fix, run it under cold water until it re-hardens. You can do this repetitively, for as long as necessary.
3) Physical Comfort Level
Coming from experience, once you put the suppository in the right place, you will not feel it. I have heard several women relate tampon placement to suppositories and the comparison is accurate. It should be easy to forget about within a minute of being inserted and if it isn’t, it might not be in the right spot.
