Cannabis Rectal Suppositories? Yes they exist, Yes I tried them.

Halloween week was crazy... I had 7 shows in 8 days across Hollywood, Downtown LA, and San Bernardino. High intensity performances (Beetlejuice was quite the physically demanding character) combined with hours commuting across the Los Angeles from gig to gig really did a number on my back.  I honestly don't think I would of gotten through the week without these products you see above. CANNARIGINALS provides a unique line of 420 First Aid Products that would make even the most sceptical person reconsider how Cannabis can truly be medicine. And YES I did say Rectal Suppositories...

Emu Oil??

Ok I have to admit as a Vegetarian who has leaned Vegan for over 10 years, I was a little weirded out by the idea of using an animal extracted oil, but after research I realized I was just uninformed on the health benefits and extraction methods. Emu oil is in fact a long used natural medicinal oil and is a perfect vessel for fast absorbing Cannabis application.

What is Emu oil?

  • An emu is a flightless bird, scientifically named Dromaius novaehallandiae.
  • Emu oil itself is a bright yellow liquid, made up of mostly fat, which is collected from the deposits below the skin of the bird.
  • Organizations such as the American Emu Association have certification programs that aim to ensure that the emu oil people buy is pure, and that the emus enjoy the best possible lives. 
  • The use of emu oil originates from the Australian Aborigine culture.
  • The Aborigines first introduced emu oil into European culture as a natural sunscreen and moisturizer, and was used for thousands of years to relieve minor aches and pains, help wounds heal quicker, and protect skin from the elements.

How does it worK?

  • Many topical creams claim to be effective for dry skin, arthritis, and inflammation, however, most creams and lotions are made up of large particles that cannot penetrate the skin.
  • Emu oil is made up of smaller particles, which allows it to carry many healthful compounds to deep layers of the skin.
  • Emu oil also contains high amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, and compounds, that help reduce inflammation, ease muscular pain, and arthritic joint pain. 

Cannabis Medicated Suppositories

Whatever you might think of putting things in your butt, if you are in serious pain this is the way to do it. Why administer Cannabis through your rectum rather then smoking, eating, or drinking? Here's why...

  • Suppositories absorb into the bloodstream through the thin lining of the intestinal wall. Unlike some other forms of medical cannabis, rectal cannabis suppositories are incredibly bioavailable - meaning they're easy for the body to use.
  • Inhaling cannabis is estimated to be 10-25% medicinally efficient and that percentage depends largely on how much is consumed and how frequently a consumer smokes.
  • Ingesting cannabis in the form of an edible is estimated to be about 20% efficient and the user is likely to experience different effects every time edibles are ingested.
  • Rectal cannabis suppositories, on the other hand, have an efficiency rate of between 50-70% and produce predictable effects every time they are used.
  • Additionally, rectal cannabis suppositories take only 10-15 minutes to take effect and the medical effects can last for between four and eight hours.

the experience

I was experiencing symptoms of Sciatica a few days into my hectic performance week. The sciatic nerve is located deep in your lower back and is caused by inflammation of the muscles and nerves in your back and hips. Aleve wasn't working, deep stretching wasn't working, Cannabis infused topicals weren't able to penetrate deep enough, so I decided to try the suppository and DAMN were the effects impressive.

TIP: I froze the suppositories first for easy administration. The oil based suppository melts quickly once it comes in contact with body heat. Having never administered a suppository myself, I also had help. Hopefully you too have a boyfriend or significant other that isn't shy about buttholes haha made it way easier. 

No less then 15 minutes after administrating the suppository, I felt the benefits moving through my bloodstream.  Cannariginals Medical Suppositories contain only 5mg of CBD and 2.5mg of THC, which makes the effects even that much more impressive. I did not feel a head high what so ever, but what I did experience was significant pain relief throughout my entire body. All the tension and pain in my body was  completely gone. I could actually move without any pain for the first time in days. I had taken the medication on the one evening I had off and was able to sleep without tossing and turning in pain. In the morning I felt like I had a whole new back and was able to maintain the health of my back throughout the rest of the week with these other fantastic Cannariginal Products.

Gold Medicated rub 50mg CBD

For their Gold Medicated Line Cannariginals use a patent formula of Emu Oil that provides nearly 50% more anti-inflammatory properties then grade A Emu Oil. With 50 mg of CBD per jar this product is truly the Gold standard in infused topical cannabis applications.

I used this product directly on my back right before going on stage to loosen up tension and perform without pain. The effects were fantastic.

Gold Mentholated Oil 2:1 CBD/THC

This product, with it's two to one ratio of CBD to THC and Menthol feel, was the perfect product to use post show at home to manage any inflammation I agitated during the show.  The Menthol in the oil was smoothing and helped my over used muscles in my back and hips relax. All though there is THC in this product, it is worth stating for those of you not familiar with Cannabis topicals that this product does not get you high as anything administered transdermally does not penetrate deeply enough to reach your blood stream.

Cannariginals Bath Crystals 20mg CBD

I have never really been a big bath person, but this product definitely convinced me the value of a good soak. I also have heard horror stories of Cannabis Bath Salts or Bombs infused with THC that get you way too high.  That will not be your experience with this product. With 20mg CBD per jar you only need one capful of Bath crystals to enjoy the relaxing and healing benefits. Not to mention the wonderful smell and aromatherapy benefits you get from the Eucalyptus and other essential oils infused in the crystals.
