Cannabis suppositories are a type of medicinal cannabis intended for rectal or vaginal use which dissolve and then are absorbed by your body.

They are usually composed of cannabis extracts mixed with a base, like coconut oil or cocoa butter.

They are a great way to get the medicinal benefits of cannabis without inhaling it.

The main uses of cannabis suppositories are for inflammation, pain management and vomiting/nausea.

Ingredients for Cannabis Suppositories

You can use cocoa butter or coconut oil but we suggest using cocoa butter.

You will want the mold to be in a shape that can be easily inserted into the rectum or vagina.

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 oz of coconut oil or cocoa butter
  • 150 mg of cannabis extract like RSO or CO2 oil
  • 12 suppository molds, 2 ml in size (you can get these from Amazon)
  • Measuring cup
  • A syringe

The Recipe

There are a few simple steps to follow:

  1. Use a double boiler to melt the cocoa butter at a low temperature. Once melted take pot away from the heat and add the cannabis oil
  2. Stir well to make sure the cocoa butter and cannabis oil are well blended
  3. Use the syringe to fill the 2 ml suppository molds
  4. Put in fridge or freezer to harden
  5. Once they harden take them out of the molds and store in a glass jar in the fridge


Once your cannabis suppositories are made, you can use them right away.

Once inserted into the rectum or vagina you should feel the effects in 15-30 minutes. Effects can last up to 8 hours.

We suggest laying down for the first 30 minutes after inserting to avoid any leakage.

There are over 300,000 jobs in the cannabis industry. CTU trained me for one of them!
