With every passing year, more and more CBD products are entering and enriching the cannabis market. CBD can be consumed as an oil or vapor, but it is commonly found in the form of “foods” that you can ingest. For example, CBD edibles can include treats such as chocolate, lollipops, and jellybeans. CBD can also be infused into honey, salad dressings, or even smoothies. One of the most popular CBD edibles is gummy bears that are easy to eat anywhere at any time.
A few CBD products come in the form of sprays or drops that are taken sublingually (placed beneath the tongue). Some CBD oil tinctures are even used as an alternative to salt and pepper by using a pipette or droppers to control for the desired level of flavor.
CBD suppositories are pill-sized and are intended to be inserted into the vagina or rectum to be dissolved. CBD, a chemical compound thought to be responsible for many of marijuana’s therapeutic effects, is often used to treat pain.
Rectal administration, or use of suppositories, allows for medicine to exert effects over localized aliments (e.g., Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chron’s Disease, hemorrhoid tissue, inflammation of the rectum, or tumors in the rectal cavity).
For those who struggle with dryness and painful sex, adding a lubricant can improve sexual performance and relieve pain. Many CBD manufacturers are making lubricants that incorporate CBD as a means to enhance sexual pleasure. Researchers have studied the effects of topical CBD as a dermatology treatment.
