I think method of ingestion is just as important as strain choice for severe chronic pain. I find good mental distraction from smoking/vaping herb, but real pain suppression for me comes in the form of everclear tincture.
We carry the 99.9% stuff at work for RSO.... I'm thinking of trying it out....I found a new love for edibles this last birthday with a 400mg cheese cake a nibbled on for a couple days here and there. Gave me great energy and took away the pain real well....I need to acheive whatever that was myself now.... Consistently lol

Green dragon tincture is the solution for me. Helps quite a bit, and is cheap to make(on both 190proof everclear and on weed)

I agree with RR, it is a combination of tools.

I will add that everyone's cannabis chemistry is different as are the causes of their pain.

When I started using cannabis medically, I started a strain journal. I rated strains of pain relief, inflammation, sensations, and psychotropics. Doing this allowed me, over time, to learn what works for me. Look at lineage, too. I hope its OK to mention the leafly site here...

That being said, for me strains with med-high THC and med-high CBD work best. I am new to auto's so I cant speak to that, but in general strains like Hashplant with 14Thc/4Cbd. The best relief was annihilator Kush with 17/7! but warning, these two are heavy.
The 1/1 strains like Pennywise do the trick if I need to be relatively sober. There are new CBD autos I may try growing.
Jack Herer works when I need pain relief with motivation, but I don't know of its CBD value. There are auto versions of that around, too.
