CBD Suppositories vs. Oils and Edibles: Which Is Right for You?

Navigating the array of CBD products can be overwhelming, especially when deciding between delivery methods. Among the myriad options, CBD suppositories stand out as a lesser-known yet highly effective choice.

In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore the differences between CBD suppositories and other top delivery methods: Oils, Edibles, and Topicals. We will examine the differences in absorption rate, onset of effects, and targeted relief to help you make an informed decision about which option is best suited to your needs.

Understanding CBD Suppositories

CBD suppositories, like Mello Bottoms or Mello Flo, offer a unique and effective way to experience the benefits of CBD. Designed for rectal or vaginal insertion, these little wonders provide quick absorption and high bioavailability. By skipping the digestive system and going straight into the bloodstream, they kick in faster and pack a stronger punch than oral methods.

When you insert a CBD suppository, it's like a fast track to relief. They get absorbed directly into your bloodstream through the mucous membranes, dodging the liver's first-pass metabolism. This means you feel the effects sooner and stronger compared to swallowing a pill or tincture. So, if you're all about getting the benefits of CBD in less than five minutes, the suppository method might be your best bet.

How Do CBD Suppositories Absorb Better? Explaining Bioavailability

Suppositories are our go-to choice for rapidly experiencing the benefits of CBD because they're absorbed directly into your bloodstream upon insertion, whether rectally or vaginally. Unlike oral methods, which involve digestion and can be subject to the liver's first-pass metabolism, suppositories—a direct route ensures a higher bioavailability of CBD.

First-pass metabolism refers to the liver's process of partially breaking down substances like CBD before they enter the bloodstream. When you consume CBD through oils or edibles, this digestive process will reduce the amount of CBD that ultimately reaches your system. This can lead to a weaker effect, as less of the CBD you've taken is available for your body to use.

However, with suppositories, the CBD bypasses this initial metabolic process, allowing more of it to enter your bloodstream directly. This results in a stronger and quicker onset of effects, as a higher proportion of the CBD you've taken is readily available for your body to use. This higher bioavailability ensures that you'll feel the effects more intensely and rapidly compared to oral methods, making suppositories an optimal choice for those seeking the benefits of CBD within five-ten minutes. 

Onset of Effects: Understanding How Quickly CBD Suppositories Work

When selecting a CBD delivery method, considering the onset of effects is crucial. Unlike oral methods, such as oils and edibles, which must pass through the digestive system before entering the bloodstream, CBD suppositories offer a much faster onset. Many users report feeling the effects within 5-10 minutes of insertion, making them an ideal option for those seeking quick support.

This rapid onset stands out as one of the key advantages of CBD suppositories. By bypassing the digestive system and entering the bloodstream directly, they provide swifter access to the therapeutic benefits of CBD. 

This becomes particularly advantageous in scenarios such as sexual play; Mello Bottoms begins working within five minutes after insertion, allowing for spontaneity. While foreplay is undoubtedly enjoyable, sometimes a quickie is all that's desired.

If you're seeking a delivery method that provides rapid pain relief or hormonal balance, Mello Flo CBD suppositories might be the perfect choice for you. Their quick onset ensures that you can start experiencing the benefits to PMS, endometriosis, or pelvic pain sooner, facilitating a return to thriving.

Targeted Relief: How CBD Suppositories Help Exactly Where You Need Them?

CBD suppositories offer a unique advantage: targeted relief to specific areas of the body. Whether inserted rectally or vaginally, suppositories deliver CBD directly to the affected area, where the CBD is needed.

This makes them particularly effective for conditions like pelvic pain, endometriosis, PMS, hemorrhoids, or anal fissures. Mello Flo, the relief suppository, was designed with this in mind. This focused approach concentrates on pain relief, muscle relaxation, and increased blood flow in and around the pelvis, uterus, and anal areas.

And, Mello Bottoms, is the intimacy suppository designed to aid in relaxation, heightened sensation, and increased blood flow to the anal and vaginal areas. Specifically designed to provide a soothing and stimulating experience during both anal and vaginal penetration, this targeted CBD relief, enhances sexual pleasure, and comfort. This tailored approach optimizes intimacy, making Mello Bottoms an ideal choice for individuals seeking enhanced sexual satisfaction and pleasure.

Are CBD Suppositories Better Than Oils or Edibles?

CBD Suppositories vs Edibles

Much like suppositories, edibles provide long-lasting effects but exhibit variable absorption rates due to digestion. This variability means that edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours to take effect. Moreover, their absorption can be influenced by other substances in the stomach, such as water and food, leading to inconsistency in their onset and potency.

Additionally, it's important to note that the body tends to eliminate a percentage of what it consumes, known as metabolism or clearance. This means that even if you consume a specific dosage, such as 5mg of CBD in an edible, you may not absorb the full amount. Factors such as individual metabolism, gastrointestinal transit time, and liver metabolism can affect how much of the ingested CBD is actually utilized by the body. As a result, the actual dosage that reaches your bloodstream may be lower than what was consumed, leading to potential variability in the effects experienced.

We often enjoy edibles as they provide the perfect route to relaxation. The slow burn and delayed effects make them ideal for evenings spent indoors, whether it's playing games, hanging out with friends, or watching a film. However, they are not reliable when it comes to pain relief or sexual wellness.

CBD Suppositories vs Oils (Placed Under The Tongue)

While CBD oils offer convenience and versatility, their effectiveness can vary depending on several factors. When taken sublingually (under the tongue), CBD oils are absorbed through the large blood vessels in the mouth, allowing for relatively fast absorption into the bloodstream. However, the onset of effects may still be slower compared to suppositories due to the need for digestion.

The bioavailability of CBD oils can also be influenced by factors such as the texture of your mouth, hydration levels, and individual differences in metabolism. For example, a dry mouth may hinder absorption, while a well-hydrated mouth can facilitate it. Additionally, the presence of food or other substances in the mouth may affect the absorption rate and overall effectiveness of CBD oils.

Overall, while CBD oils offer a convenient and accessible option for CBD consumption, their efficacy may be lower compared to suppositories, particularly when rapid onset of effects is desired.

CBD Suppositories vs Topicals

While topical CBD creams provide effective localized relief, they may not penetrate deeply enough to produce systemic effects. In contrast, suppositories offer targeted relief with rapid absorption.

As for CBD lubes, they are topical products designed for external pleasure and stimulation. While they can enhance sensation and provide surface-level benefits, they typically struggle to penetrate through the skin's transdermal layers to reach the bloodstream. Unlike suppositories, which bypass the skin barrier and are absorbed directly into the bloodstream, topical products like CBD lubes primarily act on the skin's surface without significant systemic absorption.

It's worth noting that while some small amounts of CBD may still enter the bloodstream through the skin, the extent of this absorption is generally minimal compared to suppositories. However, we still highly recommend CBD lubricants as they can be an excellent addition to CBD suppositories for sexual play. In addition to enhancing pleasure and reducing friction, CBD lubricants offer surface-level relief and can complement the targeted relief and rapid absorption provided by suppositories, making them an ideal combination for intimate experiences.

What's the Best Way to use CBD Suppositories for Better Sex?

CBD-infused lubricants and suppositories tailored for sexual health can offer targeted relief for concerns like pain or discomfort during intercourse. However, determining the most effective method and dosage may necessitate some experimentation and patience.

Commence with a conservative dose and gradually adjust until reaching the desired effects. Equally important is the selection of premium CBD products from reputable sources.

Our Mello Bottoms contain 75MG of CBD sourced from clean, full-spectrum hemp. Through extensive testing and trials, we've found that one suppository provides optimal sexual enhancement.

What's the Best Way to use CBD Suppositories for Relief?

Mello Flo suppositories are specifically formulated to address issues such as endometriosis, pelvic pain, PMS, hemorrhoids, and anal fissures. Their unique blend of CBD and magnesium targets these concerns directly, offering a holistic approach to wellness.

Insert one suppository as directed, ensuring proper insertion in your vagina or anus. For optimal relief of vaginal concerns, insertion into the anus is recommended.

Allow time for the suppository to dissolve and the CBD to take effect. While individual responses may vary, many users report feeling the effects within 5-10 minutes of insertion.

Monitor your body's response to Mello Flo suppositories, paying close attention to changes in symptoms and overall well-being. With consistent use, you may notice improvements in hormonal balance, reduced pain and discomfort, and enhanced overall health.
