I have Osteoarthritis which gets treated with CBD and THC. Pain reduction is great, and after a week the inflammation drops right down. I use Grand Daddy Purple, Pain Killer, CD1 Candida CBD.
Infused oil or RSO works very well in edibles, smoking does not really help, other than taking your mind off it quickly, until the edibles kick in. Avoiding sugar and refined carbohydrates helps a lot as well.
