When I began writing about cannabis and sex products in Canada, I didn’t anticipate that much of the interest I’d receive for products would be for”CBD anal suppositories.” Maybe I was naïve or it’s just that I hadn’t tried them yet.

According to Dr. Jess O’Reilly, Lovehoney‘s Relationship Expert and Sexologist, the entire suppository market, including pharmaceuticals, is growing and expected to reach 2.8B by 2033 with a compounded growth rate of 5.7% annually.

Regarding suppositories for anal sex in particular, O’Reilly cautions people to stay away from numbing suppositories.

“I can’t speak to the safety of suppositories, but I do want to offer a reminder that you don’t want to use numbing agents—which are popular for anal sex—as their desensitization can increase your risk of injury during anal play,” she said.

“The ability to perceive pain helps you to know how much you can handle. The anus is not only sensitive, but also thin-skinned and prone to small tears which increase the risk of infection. By temporarily numbing your butt , you are not only less likely to stop if you experience a small tear and more likely to experience pain once the effects wear off.”

She adds that “a more pleasurable and safer alternative to numbing suppositories involves more foreplay, lots of lube and high levels of relaxation prior to penetration.”

What are CBD suppositories?

CBD suppositories are a type of suppository that contains cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. These suppositories are designed to be inserted into the rectum or vagina to deliver the benefits of CBD to the body.

CBD is known for its potential health benefits, such as reducing anxiety, inflammation, and pain. When taken as a suppository, the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream through the rectal or vaginal walls, allowing for rapid onset of action and targeted delivery of CBD to a specific area.

CBD suppositories are typically made from a combination of CBD oil and a carrier substance such as cocoa butter or coconut oil. The CBD oil is mixed with the carrier substance to form a solid or semi-solid suppository that melts at body temperature and releases the CBD.

CBD suppositories may be recommended for individuals who cannot take CBD orally or prefer a non-oral method of delivery. They may also be recommended for individuals who experience localized pain or inflammation in the rectal or vaginal area. However, it is important to speak with a healthcare provider before using CBD suppositories to determine if they are appropriate for your individual needs.

Vaginal and rectal CBD suppositories are both available in Canada, in addition to suppositories that aren’t infused with cannabis.

Some suppositories are specifically designed to be anally inserted, and others are tailored to protect the health of the vaginal microbiome.

What are CBD anal suppositories?

Both “anal suppositories” and “rectal suppositories” are terms to describe suppositories that are inserted into the anus for medical purposes, and I discovered people were actually searching for the former on my site. However, “rectal suppositories” is the more commonly used and accepted term

This is because the rectum is the part of the digestive system immediately above the anus, and suppositories are typically designed to be inserted into the rectum rather than the anus itself.

On the other hand, there are, in fact, some CBD anal suppositories out there intended for use during anal sex, so in this regard, it seems correct to call them that.

Currently, the only place I know where you can reliably buy CBD anal suppositories actually created for the purpose of anal sex is from the US-based company Mello Daily.

Mello Bottoms CBD anal Suppositories were created to help people enjoy and relax for anal sex. Due to the large size of the veins in your rectum, suppositories taken this way are relatively quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, allowing the effects of CBD to occur within five and ten minutes on average.

The company is able to ship its CBD suppositories to Canada, but for a fee of about US$30.
