FWIW, I disagree that the vape is less intense. I, and others in our circle, find it MORE intense.
As for your wife's situation, I think she needs something that's indica for killing the pain, but isn't that potent. That's kind of a hard mix to find.
Maybe something with more CBD than THC. I know there are people that are breeding for that for this exact purpose: pain killing without being way too high.
To give you some perspective, I used to think that all of our pot was too narcotic when I first got together with my husband, we moved into more hybrids b/c all of our peeps felt the same. Most of what I got pre-husband was more sativa or hybrid.
Now, we're moving into finding some more sativa leaning strains right now b/c I and another housewife in our crew want something that will pep us up in the morning and go great with a cup of coffee.
You might share the following with your wife:
I don't know what I would do without pot when I have stomach problems.
I have severe allergies and sometimes I am pretty sure THEY are what causes me to have pretty severe stomach problems. I say this b/c weirdly enough, stomach problems are a major sign of allergies, and not just of food allergies. I have the most problems in the summer b/c I am severely allergic to tomatoes and that's what I've always chowed down on in the summer. I remember going on Phish tour back in the day and basically being afraid to eat anything from a restaurant or anything like that. I THOUGHT that I just had a sensitive stomach and needed to bring my own food. Too bad that always included some cherry or grape tomatoes as an easy-to-eat vegetable that holds up well in a cooler!
When I get like that, the only thing that works is to either sit on the shitter for about an hour or so (doesn't go well with my day job, I tell ya), or to smoke a bowl.
Pot is truly a God-given remedy for stomach upset.
I wonder if your wife could sneak off to the bathroom and have one hit and then see if it helps. If she had one hit at a time, she'd get more used to it, find her right dose, and probably not be too out of it to feel comfortable caring for the kids.
Additionally, think about growing something that will suit her better. Maybe your choice strains are just too "narcotic" for her, as my husband's previous grows were for me. Considering I was the biggest pot smoker anyone who knows me ever knew before he came along, it is a big thing for me to be knocked over by pot and say it is too "narcotic" for me . . . . .
I like cupcakes! And I love the Bad Girls Club.

Reason: I did a crappy job composing this post, so I split it up so it won't make anyone's head hurt.
