At the Village Bloomery cannabis dispensary in Vancouver, Andrea Dobbs sometimes meets clients in search of a heavy dose of THC to ease the strain of cancer treatments or the pain of endometriosis.
If the client is new to cannabis, or physically frail, Dobbs might suggest cannabis suppositories, inserted directly into the rectum or vagina.
“A lot of people don’t know about them, so it’s usually us broaching the subject,” said Dobbs, co-founder of the dispensary.
“And yes, it can be a moment where people are very uncomfortable,” she said with a laugh.
The Village Bloomery sells suppositories produced by B.C.-based BioMed Botanicals, in strengths ranging from 25 to 200 milligrams of THC.
“You’re able to get higher amounts of THC into your system without navigating euphoria. You don’t feel the high,” said Dobbs.
