CBD suppositories are somewhat new products in the world of cannabidiol, and many women are discovering the incredible benefits that they can bring — and for so many different complications. Even though the initial idea of this product can be a bit intimidating, it’s one of the best CBD products out there for women’s health. And, once you know a bit more about these painless products, using a CBD suppository will become just as easy as any other methodology. 

Here’s how CBD suppositories can help women feel supported and uplifted down there. 

What Is a CBD Suppository? 

Before we get into the nitty-gritty details of how a CBD suppository may be able to help you, let’s talk about what they are in the first place — and how to use them. 

First things first, a CBD suppository is a dissolvable dosage of CBD that you insert into the body either vaginally or anally. (But, for most women, vaginally is easiest as it is the same motion as inserting a tampon.) Once you’ve inserted the suppository into the chosen area, you’re all done. You’ll simply wait for the suppository to break down, dissolve, and allow the cannabinoids to start getting to work. 

The amount of CBD in your CBD suppository is going to depend on the brand you buy it from. Various brands sell these products these days, but we’d suggest shopping from companies like Foria or Mello

A CBD suppository works wonderfully in your most intimate areas because of the way the body reacts to cannabinoids like cannabidiol. The female reproductive system is full of cannabinoid receptors and plays a huge role in the body’s endocannabinoid system as a whole. Thus, when you insert a CBD suppository down there, the cannabinoids are able to dissolve and absorb directly into the bloodstream, working in the areas that your body needs most. 

Again, you also have the option of inserting your CBD suppository into the rectum. If you have complications in that area of your body, such as problems with Crohn’s disease, this is the best place to insert your CBD suppository. It simply depends on where your complications stem from. 

Now that we’ve established what CBD suppositories are, let’s talk about how they can help with women’s health directly. 

How CBD Suppositories Can Help With Women’s Health 

Some people would describe CBD and women’s wellness to be a match made in heaven. But, why is that? 

To give us better insight into how CBD suppositories can support female health, we turned to Kiana Reeves, the Chief Content Officer over at Foria Wellness. She explains, “CBD can certainly have a positive effect on women’s wellness and be a good match for some, especially when it comes to sexual arousal and pleasure. CBD is a vasodilator, meaning it supports blood flow throughout the body.” 

She continued by saying, “Arousal in the genitals involves the process of blood flow, so supporting arousal with cannabinoids can greatly impact the level of arousal a person is experiencing. An increase in arousal can lead to orgasms and an increase in sexual pleasure. CBD also has a pain-inhibiting effect, which allows the body to relax and minimizes discomfort.” 

Thus, women who experience painful sex or are even nervous during intimacy for various reasons may find that CBD suppositories are the key to promoting relaxation and, in turn, total arousal. 

When a suppository is used vaginally or rectally there is a higher absorption rate because of the mucosal lining of those tissues.

On top of the sexual aspect of CBD suppositories and the cannabinoid itself, these products can be incredible for those who experience painful cramps during menstruation or may undergo severe discomfort due to complications like endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, or even menopause. 

When inserted directly into the problem area, CBD suppositories are able to provide a concentrated, targeted level of relief that most products simply cannot. 

Keeves told us, “When a suppository is used vaginally or rectally there is a higher absorption rate because of the mucosal lining of those tissues, which are much more absorbent than transdermal absorption. When using a suppository, you also get localized and targeted absorption to specific regions in the body, for suppositories specifically there is hyper-local absorption into the pelvic region, supporting the reproductive organs and tissues there.”

All of this helps to explain how these small, delicate products create such strong, long-lasting relief in the female body. But, how do you get CBD suppositories for yourself? 

Buying CBD Suppositories for Your Health and Wellness

Thankfully, CBD suppositories are becoming much more commonplace these days, especially as more and more people see the benefits of these products firsthand. However, with a product that deals with such delicate regions of the body, you want to make sure you’re being extra careful and cognizant when making a purchase. 

Ingredients, potency, and transparency in manufacturing are the three most important things to look for when deciding which suppository to use.

To help ensure you buy only the best of the best when it comes to CBD suppositories, you have to look deep into the products’ ingredients, the brand’s reputation, and even the suppositories’ reviews. 

When we asked Keeves what she thought women should look for when buying a CBD suppository, this is what she said: “Ingredients, potency, and transparency in manufacturing are the three most important things to look for when deciding which suppository to use.” 

She then went on to explain, “Remember these are mucous membranes and very absorbent tissue. So any pesticides or chemical residue from the manufacturing process will also be absorbed into your body. For this reason [Foria] always includes a QR code on our boxes so that you can scan and view the test results for every product we have, giving you the certainty that it isn’t just clean ingredients — it’s clean manufacturing as well.”

With products like CBD suppositories, you never want to settle for anything less than the best. That’s why brands like Foria go above and beyond to prove their products’ quality and safety — and that’s what you need to look for with any CBD product you buy, especially ones as intimate as suppositories. 

Experiencing Relief and Relaxation in a Whole New Way 

CBD suppositories allow women to experience relief and relaxation in a whole new, much more concentrated way. These products are perfect for helping you feel more comfortable and even more aroused than usual, making them ideal for supporting you throughout sexual and non-sexual complications. 

The next time you’re getting ready for a spicy date night — or maybe you know you’ve got a painful period coming soon — it’s time to stock up on some CBD suppositories. Trust us: you never know just how much relief these small but mighty products can bring to female health and wellness.
