I tried it as an edible bit since I have digestion problems, it was hit or miss as far as effectiveness. I started vaping it and it does help a lot! It brings the pain to a manageable level. It isn't going to take your pain away completely though. But it does help a LOT.
I've tried the oil, the lotion, and smoking it. It works for a while, only downfall is that you build a tolerance to it. At least I did. But smoking it I find is my favorite. It helps with my anxiety and takes the edge off. Also, the bath bombs are amazing.
