Menstrual Use: CBD can be most effective when cramping starts, or even before that, to help prevent runaway inflammation and pain. (To learn more, check out our article on the science of cannabinoids & your period as well as our piece on cannabinoids for endometriosis.)
If possible, create a peaceful environment for yourself and lay on your back in a comfortable position. Insert the suppository into your vagina as deeply as possible using a finger or a tampon applicator.
A cushion or pillow under your buttocks will help the CBD oil remain as close as possible to the tissue of your cervix and uterus. This yin-yoga position can also help release pelvic tension. Relax & enjoy for 10-20 minutes or longer if you are comfortable and have time.
After the oil has had time to absorb and you stand up again, some may still exit your body. This is normal, but you may want to use a panty liner or tampon.
Menopause Relief: CBD can create muscular relaxation and enhance tissue oxygenation, and as an adaptogen it can soothe chronic pain while enhancing pleasurable sensation. Experiment with regular or even daily use. (Learn more about menopause and cannabinoids here.)
Pre-Sex Use: For extra help with pain or tightness during intercourse, experiment with inserting a suppository about 30-60 minutes before foreplay (in addition to using plenty of Awaken, our soothing & enlivening natural lube.)
Rectal Use: For everything from pain & inflammation relief to enhanced erotic play, experiment with rectal application as well, inserting as deeply as possible, 30-60 minutes before foreplay.
