Suppositories are often the butt of many jokes and puns, but rectal administration of cannabis has many advantages. In addition to being a viable option for patients who can’t ingest or inhale cannabis, cannabis suppositories also begin to work quickly and last for a long time. Best of all, suppositories are efficient: up to 70 percent of the medicinal compounds in a suppository are bio-available.
Suppositories are in several ways more effective than traditional methods of cannabis medication administration. Once inside the anus, the medicinal compounds in suppositories are quickly absorbed through the intestinal wall directly into the bloodstream, which results in “superior bio-availability” over other forms of administration. That means you get more of the medicinal effects of the product using a suppository than if you smoked or ate the same amount.
Each suppository contains THC infused coconut oil and should be inserted 1 inch into the rectum cavity. Best if refrigerated.
