We’re always up for trying new and innovative ways to use weed. Some of those ways, our younger selves could never have imagined. Two words: Cannabis suppositories. But we’re sure glad someone thought them up! And Have a Heart weed shop at 115 Blanchard Street in Belltown has them in stock.
Fairwinds Manufacturing has created the first cannabis-infused suppository available in Washington. The suppositories are easy-to-use, individually packaged, fast acting, and are not designed to provide a psychoactive effect. The ratio of CBD, THCA and THC are optimized to support relaxation and comfort. And, these suppositories are made with all-natural ingredients like organic cocoa butter, cannabis oil extracted from flower, and natural herbs chosen for their synergistic interaction with cannabis.

If you’re the type to geek out over the science of suppositories, here’s the 411 from the Fairwinds website:
“Studies have shown that suppositories provide a 2x absorption efficiency over inhalation and 3x absorption efficiency in comparison to oral consumption. Vaginal and rectal suppositories are very fast acting, often within 10-15 minutes, with effects often lasting 4-8 hours, however absorption and response varies based on individuals. Avoiding the upper gastrointestinal tract prevents first-pass metabolism by the stomach and liver (which metabolize many different molecules into inactive compounds) allowing the active constituents to reach the blood in much higher concentrations. The liver transforms approximately half of THC ingested into the significantly more psychoactive metabolite 11-Hydroxy-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol. This molecule causes more intense cognitive effects than THC. Vaginal and rectal administration not only avoids these effects, but also allows a much greater proportion of THC to reach the blood stream.”
