CBD Suppositories
Once again Gabrielle Kassel of the website Well + Good has reached out to me for my expertise, this time on the use of BD suppositories for overcoming a hypertonic pelvic floor which can lead to vaginal tightness, pain during sex or tampon insertion, etc. Here is a brief synopsis of the article along with a link to the full article below.

Can CBD Suppositories Relieve Pelvic-Floor Pain?

And Even Allow You to Finally Experience Pleasure?

As someone with a hypertonic pelvic floor, my pelvic-floor muscles are in a near-constant state of contraction. Think: tight as a closed fist. This situation can make penetrative play painful if not impossible—that is, unless I coax my pelvic-floor muscles into submission ahead of time.

Historically, I’ve been able to do just that with a combination of meditation, external genital masturbation, and breathing exercises. But I recently discovered Foria’s Relief Suppositories with CBD ($50), and they quickly became a mainstay component of my pre-penetrative sex ritual.

Even better, these gems aren’t just for people like me who have a hypertonic pelvic floor. Rather, they’re for anyone looking to reduce pain and/or increase pleasure during penetrative play, according to Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, a doctor of physical therapy who specializes in sexual dysfunction and incontinence and author of Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide to the Sex Life You Deserve.

Intrigued? Read on to learn how CBD suppositories for pelvic pain and increased pleasure work and what my experience using them has been like.

What are CBD suppositories?

Available in anal or vaginal form, suppositories are bullet-sized solids that dissolve after insertion into your internal anal or vaginal canal. CBD suppositories, specifically, are any suppository that contains cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound found in the hemp plant.

But how do CBD suppositories differ in function from other items like CBD arousal oil or CBD lube? Well, texturally, suppositories are waxy solids that become liquid only after insertion. This application allows you to access and therefore target the deeper internal tissues than what’s possible with arousal oils or lubes, according to Dr. Jeffcoat.

Who might consider using CBD suppositories?

Anyone with chronic pelvic pain, as well as anyone with suspected or confirmed endometriosis, vestibulodynia, or vaginismus may benefit,” says Dr. Jeffcoat.

In addition to helping folks with pelvic-floor pain, CBD suppositories can also be useful for those who have high mental and emotional interest in sex but a low physical response, as well as those looking to ramp up genital sensitivity, she says.

That said, Dr. Jeffcoat recommends talking with a pelvic-floor specialist or OB/GYN ahead of giving it a go. While none of her patients have experienced any side effects of using CBD suppositories, covering up sexual pains or hang-ups with something like CBD suppositories rather than learning the root cause and addressing it accordingly is likely to do your body a disservice in the long-term.

      No one could tell me why I was having pain during sex--sharp pain, not just uncomfortable, pain. I was referred to Heather Jeffcoat after researching several different options. I had seen a specialist who told me physical therapy would not help and my only option was surgery. I really didn't want to go that route, so when we got a referral, I decided to try it--it can't hurt, I thought. I am so glad I did. She diagnosed the problem right away, which was a relief in itself.To know why I was...
