Recreational Rectal Use of Cannabis (Or, What I Did for Science)
The scientific and anecdotal reports on rectal cannabis use are surprisingly conflicting. Sometimes, the best way to research something is to do it yourself. For science, for Sensi Seeds, for journalistic integrity, and for pure fun, I tried a cannabis suppository and wrote about the results.
Recreational rectal use of cannabis is not a subject I’ve ever heard discussed. Vocal proponents of every other kind of cannabis ingestion can be found everywhere, from internet forums and international hemp fairs to coffeeshops and any given living room on a Friday night. The subject of savouring a potent high by inserting suppositories, however, has not been broached (at least with me). Is rectal cannabis the last taboo of recreational use? Does it even work? There was only one way to find out.
I’d never put cannabis, nor indeed any drug, in my nether regions before. I am familiar with the concept, but I’ve never been moved to try it.
When I was a joint smoker I enjoyed the ritual of making the perfect, tasty, smooth-burning cone. I imagine there’s an element of ritual in rectal cannabis use if one does it frequently enough. However, it’s unlikely to be the sort of thing you can take 20 minutes over in a roomful of friends whilst drinking tea.
Luckily, some friends are closer than others, and I was able to enlist a lab partner for my first foray into this brave new world.
Step one: Get some suppositories for recreational rectal cannabis use
Cannabis suppositories are not a product that you can buy in a coffeeshop, nor a pharmacy, even in Amsterdam. Luckily I was able to obtain some (from a source who wishes to remain anonymous). They were made from butane-extracted whole plant concentrate in a base of coconut oil, giving them a pleasant, almost chocolatey smell, rather like spacecakes. They weighed two grams each.
I had them tested and the results showed 16% THC and 1% CBD, which would definitely give a psychoactive effect if taken in any way that I was familiar with.
Having procured cannabis suppositories, our preparations were twofold: the classic ‘set and setting’. The former consisted of research. I found practical tips, including ‘lie on your side and bend one leg to make insertion easier’ and ‘don’t pass wind for at least 15 minutes afterwards’.
I found anecdotal reports: “For me, music starts playing in my head about 1 minute after “dosing”,”; “Within minutes I could feel a warm, pleasant sensation washing over my entire pelvic region”.
And I found science which said maybe it shouldn’t work at all.
What is the science behind using cannabis rectally?
According to Allan Frankel, MD, who has researched and written about rectal absorption of cannabis, nothing was felt by his test patients when they tried cannabis oil in cocoa butter. Analysis of their plasma revealed negligible THC and CBD levels. According to “Practical Pharmaceutics: An International Guideline for the Preparation, Care and Use of Medicinal Products”, the rectum does not absorb fats efficiently.
Any active substance in a suppository must first dissolve into the aqueous mucus that lines the rectum, and then pass into the bloodstream. It cannot be absorbed directly by the membrane without traversing the aqueous mucus layer.
Therefore active substances that are themselves lipophilic (such as cannabinoids) should not be combined with a fatty or oily carrier if they are intended for rectal use, as this will reduce their overall absorption. Since virtually every cannabis suppository I found mentioned online was in a fatty base (as was mine), this should have impaired their efficacy.
6 Differences Between Medicinal and Recreational Cannabis
The rectal veins – superior, middle and inferior
Assuming that some of the cannabinoid content makes it through the mucus, it then circulates either via the inferior and middle rectal veins into the inferior vena cava, bypassing the liver; or via the superior rectal vein to the liver where it is ‘first pass’ metabolized.
It was thought that the lack of psychoactivity resulted from THC missing the liver and therefore not metabolizing into 11 hydroxy delta-9 THC (11-OH-THC). This metabolite is more potent, and stays in the system for longer, than THC. It also crosses the blood-brain barrier more easily. Interestingly, the effect of many drugs is reduced by first pass metabolism, but not cannabis!
Large amounts of 11-OH-THC are produced when cannabis is eaten (although the unmetabolised THC has a low absorption rate), so this metabolic process determines much of the strength of the same dose when ingested in different ways. In other words, exactly the same dose of cannabis will produce different effects depending on whether you vape it, smoke it, eat it, or insert it into your rectum.
The most recent scientific research on the rectal absorption of THC was published in 1991, and used crab-eating macaque monkeys. (People to whom I’ve told this have said “poor monkeys!”, to which the reply is, have you seen what else they do to monkeys? These monkeys are the lucky ones.)
Results showed no rectal bioavailability of THC, but when the cannabinoid was processed to create a combination with the molecule ester hemisuccinate (THC-HS), the bioavailability shot up to 13.5% and the mean residence time of THC in the blood was 5.8 hours. THC-HS is water-soluble, which is why it dissolves into the aqueous mucus.
Back to my personal rectal cannabis experience
What all my theoretical research came down to was basically “anecdotes say something might happen, science says nothing should happen”. This being as far as I could get with ‘set’, I moved onto ‘setting’.
We put mattresses on the living room floor and made sure there were enough drinks and munchies on hand. I had music, films, and interesting picture books to stimulate us if needed. I considered lighting some candles, figuring I should make it as nice an experience as possible after subjecting my lab partner to descriptions of animal experiments and rectal aqueous mucus, but fire and altered states don’t mix so I just turned the lights down.
To give an accurate report as possible, we had abstained from any other drugs (including the legal ones) and I set my phone to beep at half-hour intervals so I could chart the experience.
We toasted each other with the large, slippery, dark green bullets. First lesson: insert them as soon after removal from the fridge as possible, because fingertip heat alone is enough to start them melting. However, this means they are basically self-lubricating, which isn’t a bad thing. We lay down, me on my back and my lab partner on his side, and waited.
After half an hour, I felt quite giggly. This could have been the beginnings of a high, or the incongruity of live-tweeting rectal cannabis use as part of my job. In response to a tweet asking me how it was going, I attempted to analyse what I was experiencing.
There was a mild tingling sensation, not unpleasant, around the ground zero area of application. I wasn’t able to say for sure if there was any psychoactive effect. My lab partner had fallen asleep, but he had travelled overnight from London to Amsterdam and arrived that morning. The data was inconclusive thus far.
What Hashish Did To Walter Benjamin
One hour into the experiment: getting high
My lab partner was still fast asleep and I was explaining to people on Twitter that I didn’t have IBS or IBD, this experiment was purely for research. A feeling of deep relaxation suffused me, especially my legs and pelvic area. I believe the use of suppositories to ease menstrual cramps could be very effective, based on this. I felt extremely tranquil, but not sleepy, and decided to finally get up and go to the kitchen for a change of scenery and to see if any psychoactive effects made themselves known.
They did. Once in the kitchen, the munchies kicked in with a vengeance and I noticed that colours and patterns were enhanced. I heated up some soup; flavours were enhanced too. I giggled to myself thinking about the great Dr Lester Grinspoon’s realisation that he was having his first cannabis experience when the pizza he was eating became the best he’d ever tasted.
Despite being a clearly recognisable cannabis high, what I was experiencing was unlike what I’ve felt when eating, smoking or vaporising it. My head felt clear and I felt peaceful yet alert; a sativa type of high without the soaring headrush or potential confusion.
It was extremely enjoyable and not at all overpowering, yet I was definitely in an altered state. The dragon trees in my living room looked fascinating. Getting back under the duvet was lovely. I felt no need for additional entertainment. There was an opiate-like quality to the contentment and relaxation, but no nausea or feelings of disassociation.
An hour and a half in: definitely high
I was still feeling the same effects, which seemed to have hit a plateau rather than fading or intensifying. My lab partner woke up and said he wasn’t sure if he was feeling anything apart from very relaxed, but he definitely felt like eating something. He just wasn’t sure what. (In retrospect, this was a total giveaway that he was experiencing the effects!) The following conversation took place:
“Is it chocolate?”
“Is it oatcakes with vegan cream cheese?”
“Is it… (I am having trouble remembering what else there is to eat) …is it tomatoes?”
“I don’t think so.”
“Ooh, is it pineapple soy yogurt?”
“YES. Yes, it is. Oh yes.”
“We are definitely high.”
We devoured a litre of said yogurt in under three minutes. It tasted fantastic. Then we lay back down and discussed the high. It was strong but not psychedelic, and deeply physically relaxing. The best analogy is that of lying in a warm bath that you don’t want to get out of. All muscle tension was dissolved.
Alert, talkative, and surprisingly fragrant
We felt warm and heavy but not sleepy, and the effect seemed to end at the upper neck – literally as though lying in a bath with only your head out of the water. However, it was not a ‘couchlock’ stone. We remained alert and talkative. Although the effect was powerful, it was not at all disorienting or overwhelming.
(There was one additional fact that I was not expecting. I hadn’t read about it anywhere during literally hours of research. So, dear reader, I will share it with you. After eating, the digestive system starts up. This can lead to passing wind. And if you’re experimenting with rectal use of cannabis, this causes your wind to smell like a growroom of strong sativas just before harvest. You’re welcome.)
Where Did 420 Come From, And Where Is It Going?
The following day: Still high
It was also very, very long-lasting. Neither of us use cannabis regularly anymore and consequently we both have low tolerance; even so, I was not expecting to still be high the next morning. After I left for work, my lab partner had a large breakfast and went back to bed.
By the time he texted me at 15:00 to say he had just woken up and could I get some more pineapple yogurt, the effects I had felt had almost completely worn off. It took him several more hours to feel completely back to normal. This makes rectal use of cannabis by far the most economical method I’ve tried.
More research is needed on the rectal use of cannabis
Based on my research, what conclusions can be drawn? Firstly, there is no way that we were experiencing a placebo effect. I’ve used enough cannabis to know the difference. Secondly, although I had no way of measuring THC in our blood plasma, I can assure you that there was plenty sloshing around our endocannabinoid systems.
So how did it get there? It’s fairly safe to assume that at least some THC entered the superior rectal vein and achieved first pass metabolism into 11-OH-THC. I was aiming for this to happen, so I literally aimed for it (unlike medicinal users who would presumably keep the suppository lower in the rectum to avoid it).
It might be possible that the effect was so long-lasting because any THC missing the first pass when it initially entered the bloodstream via the inferior and middle rectal veins would eventually reach the liver. If this is so, a second phase of metabolism into 11-OH-THC could have taken place long after the initial dose.
However, for the THC to get to any of the rectal veins, it still needs to traverse the aqueous mucus layer. As previously stated, this shouldn’t be possible without the presence of the hemisuccinate ester. Could it be that some part of the process of making the butane-extracted concentrate creates THC-HS, or a similar enough ester or analogue to permit absorption to occur?
The experiments on the macaque monkeys used THC only, not whole plant extract. Could the presence of other cannabinoids, the ‘entourage effect’, make the crucial difference? However, Dr Frankel’s studies used full spectrum cannabis oil in cocoa butter, and that did not seem to work. The doctor himself concludes that more research is needed in order to take full advantage of this delivery method.
Benefits of rectal cannabis use
Having tried it, I can think of various benefits for both medicinal and recreational rectal cannabis use. There’s the long-lasting deep relaxation, which would definitely relieve pain and muscle tension. The extended ‘munchies’ effect would doubtless aid anyone who needed to gain weight, plus the delivery method means that there is no risk of vomiting up oral appetite stimulants. The amount needed for an effective dose is small, and the dosage is easy to control.
There is also the advantage over edibles (such as cake or sweets) of it being highly unlikely that someone will accidentally insert a cannabis suppository thinking it is a harmless treat. There are numerous tales of people eating ‘medibles’ by accident, and they seldom end well. However, in all my years of psychonautics, I have never heard of anyone casually inserting a random suppository they found lying around.
Work the following day was a little more challenging than usual, but by no means impossible. I would not have wanted to drive or operate heavy machinery, but the clarity of the high was fine for writing, interacting with colleagues, going to the shops, and cooking dinner. For people who need effective pain relief without being incapacitated, this would be ideal.
How to Use CBD Oil for Awesome Anal Sex
Are you looking to take your anal sex to the next level? Well, then you’ve come to the right place.
CBD lubricant is a natural way to give you the relaxed yet spicy sexual experience you’ve been looking for. And with its many benefits, you’ll be glad you tried it.
But the real question is, how do you use it? Keep reading to learn what it is and how to use CBD oil for the most pleasurable experience possible.
What Is CBD?
Before you put anything on or in your body, you should know what it is.
CBD (or cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring chemical in the marijuana or hemp plant. But unlike the other chemical in cannabis, THC, it does not have any psychoactive properties. So in other words, CBD alone won’t get you high.
It is most well known for its healing properties and is used in a variety of products such as tea, creams, gummies, and of course oils. It’s known to balance the body, relieve stress, boost your mood, improve circulation, relax your muscles, and reduce anxiety or depression.
All About CBD Lubricant
There is a wide range of CBD lubricants to choose from. Kush Queen, Ignite CBD Lube, Unbound Dazy, Infinite CBD Big Bang, Ananda Hemp Bliss, and Privy Beach are all great choices.
Other lubes on the market such as numbing anal creams can be really bad for your body and are often full of chemicals that can cause long-term damage. Not only this but these lubes can also decrease your enjoyment because you are lacking any sensation.
CBD lubricant will actually do the opposite and increase your sensation. This can make for even more intense orgasms too!
However, it is also important to note that not all CBD lubricants on the market are good for you. Make sure to look at the ingredients before you put something on your body. Avoid products that contain ingredients such as glycerin, parabens, or nonoxynol-9.
But all-natural brands (like the ones listed above!) won’t harm your body.
It’s also good to know that if you are looking to use a condom during anal sex, oil is not your friend. Oil-based lubes are not ideal as they can often cause the latex to break down. So if you’re looking to use a condom, try a water-based CBD lubricant instead.
And before using this product, it’s advisable to ask a doctor about it, or at least make sure it won’t negatively interact with any other medications you take.
Why Choose CBD Oil?
There are lots of reasons to choose this lubricant.
If you need a little extra help loosening your body, this could be the product for you. Before anal sex, the internal anal sphincter can be a little too tight for anything to penetrate it. It’s natural! CBD has muscle relaxing properties, so after applying it, insertion won’t be as painful when you start having sex.
If you also have trouble mentally relaxing before sex, give it a try.
Anxiety is never fun to deal with, especially in the bedroom. But CBD can help get you out of your head and into your body, letting you and your partner enjoy each other a bit better. And while this isn’t a miracle product that will completely get rid of your worries, it can help you relax a lot faster than usual.
This oil can also help bring down inflammation in the intestinal tract and the rectum. For this reason, it is often used by those who have illnesses that make anal sex painful such as IBS or hemorrhoids. So if you suffer from these ailments, CBD oil can help reduce pain and irritation during and even after sex.
How To Use CBD Oil
Using CBD oil lubricant for anal sex is like using other lubes. It’s all about being smart and safe to have the best time! And with anal sex, it’s all about going slowly and making sure you and your partner are on the same page.
In general, using lube for anal sex is super important, as the rectum doesn’t secrete a natural lubricant like the vagina does. And if you don’t use it, you could be looking at tears in the anal tissue.
You want to start by putting lube on the rectum and anything that is being inserted into it. Fingers, toys, plugs, what have you, all of it should be lubed up. You don’t need that much, so start with a dime-sized amount and add more if needed. You don’t want to turn the bedroom into a slip and slide!
Put a bit of lube inside yourself too for the most seamless insertion. This will help to prevent any irritation and make your butt feel ready to go.
You also want to give it a little time to absorb into the body and take effect, so apply it before you’re ready to start having sex. However, because the anus has lots of mucous membranes, it absorbs the lube pretty quickly. So waiting about 10 to 15 minutes should do the trick.
Pro tip: check to see if your lube has an expiration date and be sure to use it before then.
Now Go Enjoy Some Anal Sex
Now you know how to use CBD oil and have awesome anal sex. It will relax you and give you the pleasurable experience you’ve been dreaming of. You and your partner will definitely be glad you tried it.
