Two of the most popular active ingredients in marijuana are THC and CBD. Most people enjoy cannabis through smoking the dry flowers or eating infused foods, but did you know that your body can also absorb these marijuana components when you use weed suppositories?
Most people have an immediate adverse reaction to the idea of using suppositories, but in reality it may be the ultimate method to administering cannabis. When ingested orally, the stomach and liver break the molecules down to deliver a strong dose of the active cannabinoids to the system. This is what provides the powerful high many of us enjoy. By circumventing the digestive track, the cerebral high associated with the psychoactive chemicals in cannabis (such as THC) can be avoided by a majority of users. When THC and CBD are combined in suppositories, it offers an extremely fast and targeted relief.
Any patient dealing with an ailment that prevents them from taking medicine orally, such as a broken jaw, gastrointestinal upset, or injured throat will definitely find the usefulness of this method. It is also perfectly formulated to deal with pain and illness caused by menstrual cramping, rectal cancer, vaginal and rectal cysts, and tumors. Suppositories can deliver a higher dose of medicine without causing a cognitive change and the effects have an onset of ten to fifteen minutes. The relieving effects can last anywhere from four to eight hours, depending on the user’s tolerance.
It is important to keep yourself hydrated and try to empty your intestinal system before use for best results. The suppositories should be solid when used, so toss them in the fridge, freezer, or run them under cold water to ensure they aren’t already liquefied when opening. You can also expect some discharge after use. If you can get around the idea of it, you may find that this is the best option for direct pain relief below the waist.
How many chemicals in weed do you think can be absorbed through the use of suppositories? The possibilities are endless here. This intake method can deliver up to 80% of the plant’s medicine, while smoking only delivers about 15% and oral ingestion delivers around 35%.
