Need edible or oil that doesnt make you high

Discussion in 'Weed Edibles' started by ReeferMadness420, Jul 13, 2013.

  1. Hello, 
    \nI'm new to the grasscity community. My grandpa has had a heart attack, a brain bleed, a stroke, prostate cancer and most recently leukemia, all within my 20-year lifetime. He made it past the cancer. After 4 months in the hospital he left cancer free. Then he got a condition called GVHD which they put him on steroids to relieve. Because of all of these things, he can barely walk, his muscles have broken down and he is in the process of building them back up. He takes opiods which do him some good but he is still in a lot of pain.  I live in a state where medical marijuana is not legal (yet, that is; we're in the process but many of our surrounding states have very strict guidelines, stifling availability and there are signs that our state might follow that trend). So I'm going to have to make him something myself.
    \nI have been trying to convince my grandpa to use marijuana for his pain. Finally I got him to agree.
    1. He won't smoke it.
    2. He has two conflicting symptoms. The steroids have taken away his appetite so full strength weed might help there but he is constantly lethargic as a result of a decrease in his steroids so making him any more tired might deter him from using weed in the future to help his symptoms.
    3. This is his first endeavor into the marijuana world and I'm afraid to get him high in case he doesn't like the actual high. 
    \nFrom the research that I have done on tinctures and oils, it looks like I will have to use a lot of marijuana, which in a non-legal state can really fucking set you back, as some of you probably remember and I really want him to get some REAL RELIEF. It really looks like after all he's been through, the depression surrounding the fact that he is in constant pain is taking the worst toll on his morale than anything. 
    \nAny advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much for reading all of this.

    Tbh my best advice would be for him to vape. Edibles for a first time user are very hard to get right and when I first made brownies they messed up my girlfirend at the time pretty good with 0.4g per brownie. She almost had a whole one so I would say 0.3.
    Also I don't think you can get the benefits without being high. 
    Try and get a strain with little to no couch lock but still good for pain relief. That will probably be best.
  3. Try and get a cbd oil
