It is pretty good for pain, I find Delta 8 (D8) to be a little more subtle than delta 9 (regular) weed. To me it always feels a little more like and indica, more of a body high, but won’t necessarily couch lock you. Not sure about chronic pain, I think like anything the more you’ll need of it over time. I think this could be particularly true with D8 as it seems to not be as strong to begin with. The upside is you can order in bulk online and get it crazy cheap (like less than $10 a gram even after shipping).
