DIY CBD Suppositories
CBD and Me
It’s appropriate that the day I plan to post this blog, my moon starts in full force. This is now my 6th month taking CBD oil, and typically the moment I start bleeding, my cramps take over my existence for the next 48 hours, and today they haven’t! I don’t have a miracle story of “The first time I took CBD my cramps totally went away!”. Most people don’t. The key with CBD is consistency.
I can say that after 6 months of taking the oil, my cramps are becoming less and less debilitating, and I’m having to supplement with less and less ibuprofen. I had been taking 800mg of ibuprofen 3-4x a day during my first couple days of my period, but now I’m down to 400mg 1-2x a day. My goal is to never take ibuprofen again!
So far today my cramps have not even started. Praying I can keep them at bay just with my CBD. I’ve taken about 30mg of full spectrum CBD sublingually to start my day. Planning to use my homemade 25mg vaginal suppository before I go to bed tonight.
Suppositories Don’t Have to be Scary
The last couple months, I have been using my own homemade CBD suppositories, and they are honestly my favorite way to take CBD. Sure, the word ‘suppository’ has most adults giggling like 5 year olds when someone makes a fart joke, but in all seriousness… putting this medicine up your butthole could save your life.
I use mine vaginally for menstrual cycle pain and to heal my reproductive area from an old pre-cervical cancer diagnosis and years of hormone birth control. I use it anally for IBS and digestive system issues from years of drinking alcohol and a processed food diet. I have heard multiple testimonies of people healing cervical and colon cancer with CBD suppositories.
For me, organic, full spectrum CBD works wonders as a treatment and as a preventative holistic plant medicine. I recommend this easy, do-it-yourself recipe for homemade suppositories to everyone who cares to try it. Let the giggling begin! Laughter is the second best medicine next to CBD oil.
DIY CBD Suppositories
Anal or Vaginal
Full Spectrum, Organic CBD Oil *Strongly Recommends NuLeaf Naturals
Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
What else you’ll need:
Ice tray with pop-out cubes, ideally circular
Of all the homemade products you can make, this is seriously one of the most simple. Just two ingredients! I use NuLeaf Naturals CBD oil since it is the most pure and potent full spectrum, organic CBD oil I’ve been able to find (see my CBD Checklist), and some organic, cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil (brand doesn’t matter, but quality usually comes in glass).
If needed, gently melt your coconut oil with as little heat as possible. With a teaspoon, begin to fill the cubes in the ice tray with coconut oil to the size desired, taking into consideration where you will be putting them.
Fill the dropper of your CBD oil. Determine the milligrams of CBD you’d like in each suppository and drop the related number of drops to achieve the dosage. For example, NuLeaf Naturals CBD oil is about 2.5mg of CBD per drop, so 4 drops = 10mg of CBD. Then use a chopstick or similar tool to stir each cube to mix the CBD oil into the coconut oil until blended evenly.
Place ice tray into the freezer. Let freeze for 1-2 hours before use, and store in freezer. Can be used vaginally or anally, both areas of which are highly absorbent, providing high bioavailability of the cannabinoids. It will stain fabric so take appropriate precautions to protect clothing and sheets. Best to use right before bed or laying down for an extended period of time. You may always cut them into smaller pieces for smaller doses or easier insertion.
Disclaimer: Always check with your medical provider before adding any new supplement to your regimen. CBD dosage is different for everyone. Starting low and increasing slowly is advised. Suppositories offer very high absorption rates so it is recommended to learn your dosage first through sublingual dosages.
