Chronic pain has many causes, so the most effective treatment with cannabis can vary.
If your pain is caused by inflammation/autoimmune disorders of any kind, CBD is the cannabinoid for you. CBD seems to work best over time, so it helps to find a form of it that you can take every day. CBD oil is a very good option because it works for 8-12 hours per dose; pre-measured oil capsules are a very convenient way to go. Smoking and vaping are possible, but you may only get a few hours of relief when you inhale it. Tinctures work quickly, but they don’t always have the concentration or staying power of oil.
For some types of chronic pain, such as neuropathy or nerve pain, patients often find that adding some THC into the mix is very helpful. There are several strains of cannabis that have a 3:1 or 4:1 ration of CBD to THC such as AC/DC or Harlequin; these can be very useful if you are looking for strain-specific relief. At the Capsule Cooperative we carry 1:1 ratio of THC that is very helpful for this kind of pain.
Because cannabis effects everybody differently, you may need to try a few different kinds before you find something that works for you.
