CBD Vaginal Suppositories Overview
We’ve all heard of CBD, and the word ‘suppository’ is in most of our vocabularies. But the concept of CBD vaginal suppositories themselves may be an unfamiliar one. Here's a comprehensive guide.
Easy to use, these small, hard suppositories are inserted into the vagina, where they quickly dissolve. An effective form of pain and stress relief, CBD vaginal suppositories also work to reduce inflammation - making them a great choice for those who menstruate.
Why Should You Use CBD Vaginal Suppositories?
Good question! Put simply, when a medication is taken orally, it has to go through your gastrointestinal (GI) tract before it hits your bloodstream. This means that many of the ingredients in it don’t get fully absorbed.
By delivering CBD to cannabinoid receptors in the female reproductive system, CBD vaginal suppositories enter the blood system directly. As a result, they offer a more targeted, localized drug delivery - and therefore more effective relief from period pain.
Using a CBD based vaginal suppository also introduces cannabinoids into the endocannabinoid system, which can help manage period pain.
Benefits of CBD Vaginal Suppositories
Reduced inflammation and pain
When we menstruate, the uterus contracts to help expel its lining. For people with endometriosis, a condition which causes the uterine tissue to grow outside the uterus, inflammation is a common symptom. CBD vaginal suppositories can be an effective remedy in reducing this, and the pain associated with it.
A recent study into the effects of cannabis ingestion on endometriosis-associated pelvic pain and related symptoms found that cannabis appears to be effective for pelvic pain, gastrointestinal issues and mood.
Alleviation of symptoms related to menopause
The menopause has a lot to answer for, and comes with a roster of painful, hard to manage symptoms. Hot flashes, sleep disturbance and vaginal dryness and pain are some of the most common complaints.
The good news is CBD vaginal suppositories can help to relieve these symptoms. Research suggests that the body gradually produces fewer cannabinoids as you go through menopause. Introducing more of these to your system through CBD suppositories could help alleviate symptoms related to the menopause.
Improved sexual pleasure
CBD vaginal suppositories promote relaxation and blood flow - two must-haves to achieve between-the-sheets ‘wow’ factor!
Relief from menstrual cramps
Cramps happen when the pelvic floor muscles are clenched. CBD vaginal suppositories - like the OVY Vaginal Suppository - can help relax muscles and relieve cramp discomfort. Because they also bypass the liver, CBD vaginal suppositories hit the blood stream directly. They localize pain relief in the vaginal tract, offering a more targeted relief from period pain.
Enhanced vaginal lubrication
Vaginal dryness can be a source of pain and discomfort - especially during sex. CBD vaginal suppositories can counteract this by promoting increased vaginal lubrication, making for a more comfortable, pleasurable sex life.
What do intimacy suppositories with CBD do?
Similar to CBD vaginal suppositories, intimacy suppositories with CBD are designed with natural products to reduce physical tension and discomfort. CBD works to promote the muscle relaxation necessary for pleasurable sex. They can also provide relief from vaginal dryness.
How long does it take for CBD suppository to work?
Vaginal suppositories dissolve within 10-15 minutes and are directly absorbed into the bloodstream in your vagina. You'll likely start to feel relief in 30-45 minutes.
Why do people use CBD suppositories?
When medication is taken orally, it has to go through your gastrointestinal (GI) tract before it hits your bloodstream. This means that many of the ingredients in it don’t get fully utilized.
Because the cannabinoids in CBD suppositories hit the blood system directly, they’re a great option for quick, potent pain relief.
How long does a CBD suppository last?
OVY offers 7-9 hours of long-lasting relief. We recommend inserting another OVY after 6-8 hours, depending on your level of discomfort and dosage.
What Can I Expect When I take OVY?
OVY provides fast acting and long lasting pain relief from that time of the month. When using OVY, you’ll see darker discharge in your pad, cup, or tampon. This is normal! The darker colour is a result of the tissue, blood, and suppository mixing.
Final Thoughts on CBD Vaginal Suppositories
The beauty of CBD vaginal suppositories lies in their efficiency as well as their versatility. In addition to providing quick, effective period pain relief, CBD vaginal suppositories can improve sexual pleasure and alleviate common symptoms associated with the menopause.
