Cannabis suppositories are real, and millions of people are finding relief with these odd cannabinoid-infused products, but until now, there was no way for consumers to buy them legally in Canada. This excellent news will be greatly appreciated by people who’ve been forced to find a black-market cannabis suppository provider, many of which made them in an open and unsterile environment, which is problematic when it comes to something that’s so intimate and inserted directly into the body.

What are cannabis suppositories?

A cannabis suppository is just like any other, designed to be inserted into the body to provide relief from a wide variety of symptoms. They are typically made using natural ingredients that will melt as they reach body temperature, like cannabis-infused coconut oil. Once applied, these tools release a powerful dose of cannabinoids that can be soothing for those who are suffering from a broad spectrum of bowel and vaginal-related conditions.

The benefits of a cannabis suppository

It might sound strange and uncomfortable, but you can rest easy knowing that people are using cannabis suppositories to get high. They’re really only utilized in certain situations where they might be able to help. These are just some of the symptoms that can be relieved with the application of a cannabis suppository.

  • Painful or difficult bowel movements
  • Constipation
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Stomach aches
  • Inflammation
  • Painful sex
  • Cancer
  • Difficulty healing wounds in the vagina, urethra or anus

A cautious approach

Though cannabis suppositories have shown promising results, we don’t have a whole lot of scientific data on their effectiveness. Instead, we rely on anecdotal evidence via the personal experiences of those who have tried them with success. Of course, for obvious reasons, a lot of people are uncomfortable with the idea of sticking anything in such private places, but when you’re faced with a decision and looking for relief, they can be a welcoming solution that’s affordable, easy to administer, and free of side effects, unlike most pharmaceuticals that are commonly prescribed to manage these issues.

Prairie Grass cannabis suppositories

The Alberta-based licensed producer Prairie Grass just released the very first line of cannabis suppositories to make it onto dispensary shelves, and they’re designed by women for women. This female-founded company is filling a massive hole in the market, as women are requesting more and more additional support in health and wellness. It’s something that people really need, even if they don’t quite know it yet, and there are two types to choose from.

1. Relief pods

These cannabis suppositories contain 10mg of THC in each piece, and they can be administered via vagina, urethra or anus.

2. Eve pods

This cannabis suppository is much different harnessing the power of CBD with an impressive 40mg per unit dose, and it’s derived from hemp to ensure that there is never any more than 1mg of THC.
Only time will tell for certain whether or not this less popular choice of cannabis product will make it big on the market, but so far, the company’s owner has high hopes for success and plans to expand in the future.
