What You Should Know About Cannabis Suppositories

Cannabis suppositories have earned support thanks to their effective and fast acting relief.

For the uninitiated, the use of cannabis suppositories sounds like something that’s on the fringe of things. Don’t be fooled though. Despite the fact that you’re putting weed up your butt, this method of consumption has been hailed as some of the most effective ways of obtaining fast acting medicinal relief.

There are many ways of ingesting cannabis, but a large portion of them produce either unwanted effects that are challenging to manage (like edibles) or aren’t completely absorbed once administered (like smoked cannabis). Suppositories sit somewhere in between these two, producing strong yet manageable effects and ensuring that most of the cannabis in them goes to use.

The rise in support for cannabis suppositories has been fast. Many enjoy the fact that they’re fast acting (ranging from 20 minutes to an hour), that it can treat a variety of rare and hard to treat diseases, and that it provides very efficient relief.
