I'd bet you would get better relief from a product containing the THC. I tried some recently and it was nothing like smoking pot. No paranoia, no munchies but very pleasant. Pain relief? I don't recall having any pain for a very nice 5 hour period and had a great nighta sleep. I used to smoke a lot of pot and I can assure you edibles are far milder and old guys and gals who never smoked pot and probably wouldn't like it would love the gummies I ate. They were home made and illegal.
