Research shows that CBD increases the serum concentration of anandamide. Anandamide is very closely related to the hormone oxytocin, commonly known as the cuddle hormone. This can provide for a deeper emotional connection during intimacy.
A recent study conducted on adults showed that CBD can relax your muscles, and improve blood flow. It also opens your nerve receptors increasing the intensity of orgasms.
It has been proven that CBD can help relax the uterine muscle where cramps occur, decrease inflammation and pain in our body, and help with anxiety, mood swings, and irritability during our period.
Why CBD Suppositories?
Suppositories have the highest bioavailability ~94%. The reason doctors don't prescribe all drugs this way is that oral dosing is more convenient, and people are weird about putting things in their bums.
Simply put bioavailability refers to how much CBD will be absorbed, how quickly you feel the CBD, and how long the Body Bliss lasts.
- Almost all of the CBD is absorbed —A recent study showed that 94% of paracetamol was absorbed when administered rectally, compared to 37% when administered orally. Unlike a capsule, this method bypasses the stomach, intestine, and liver where it will most likely be eliminated.
- A CBD suppository is absorbed fast —It immediately enters the bloodstream through the large veins in your bottom. It moves from the bloodstream to the tissues and cells and binds to receptors, and gets to work. There is no waiting for it to make its way through your digestion, it is instant.
- These can last up to 24hours as it takes longer for your body to metabolize CBD when combined with a fatty acid, in this case we chose Coconut Oil.
Also knowns as early-onset. Are you tired of waiting for your CBD to hit? Now you do not have to!
94% of CBD will be used. Isn't it time for you to get what you paid for?
Your Questions, Answered.
Seriously. Our team of Cannabinoid Connoisseurs has done the research.
We think it’s crucial to have open conversations around sexual health. When we say sexual health, we are not just referring to vaginal penetration, anal penetration should also be included in this conversation. Both should be pleasurable, and not painful.
To anyone who has struggled with painful sex— whether from Endo, PMS, or Vulvodynia, or Anal— you know that there is a shame and fear that accompany it. Our founder personally struggled with this for a long time.
So, she created Mello Bottoms— a CBD suppository for Sex. The reality is that everyone is doing it, we just aren’t talking about it. With Mello, we hope to lead that conversation.
How do they work?
The warmth of your body melts the oil and CBD is absorbed through the large juicy blood vessels in your bottom, and then sent to your bloodstream.
Why are suppositories a preferred absorption method?
Because they treat the local area, but also bypass ‘the first pass effect’ and allow cannabinoids to absorb directly into the bloodstream— Two hits in one.
Essentially everything you consume, a capsule, oil or edible has to make its way through your GI tract and into your liver, and then into your bloodstream. This process takes time and along the way your body eliminates a lot of it. It is also unique to every person. Taking a suppository removes these variables. They bypass that step entirely and absorb directly into your bloodstream through the veins in your bottom or vagina. So you get more of the cannabinoids you paid for. And you feel the effect much faster.
They take effect in about 10 minutes— Perfect time for a little foreplay and intimacy before penetration.
But Why Use CBD for intimacy?
Studies have shown that CBD can elevate your mood and decrease inhibition.
Studies have proven that CBD inhibits inflammatory and neuropathic pain responses.
PMS? PCOS, Vulvodynia?
Vulva pain, PMS and PCOS all cause awful cramping, and muscle aches and pains. Which comes from inflammation, in most cases if you can treat the local area and remove the inflammation. The pain does decrease.
Can you use them in your bottom or your vagina? Which one is better?
Ultimately this is a personal preference. I like to think of my vagina as a beautiful machine I want to leave alone, so I take them through my bottom. But it does not matter. Your bottom or your vagina. They both are richly vascularized (ahem veiny) so will absorb the cannabinoids either way.
Is it difficult to use the suppositories?
Frankly it is way easier than you think. Your bottom tends to suck them in, once you are in a comfortable position and have lubed up accordingly, you only need to insert the tip and your bottom takes care of the rest.
Anal Sex Prep, Is there anything I need to do differently?
You should do the usual prep you are comfortable with doing prior to having anal. And then when you are with your partner and ready to play, take one. Think of these as the item you insert just prior to your foreplay. Do it together, enjoy the moment.
