Need help with tolerance build-up

https://www.reddit.com/r/Marijuana/comments/brgqv0/need_help_with_tolerance_buildup/

I was in a severe automobile accident that crushed both of my legs from my knees down 3 years ago. I have had 19 surgeries since then and suffer from constant nerve pain (in both an amputated limb and one I still have) as well as crushing bone pain. I am already taking more narcotic pain medicine than most people could ever hope to get access to these days, so there is no chance I will ever be able to get more than I already do from my doctor. So about a year ago, I tried pot (prior to the accident, I had done it maybe a dozen times in my life, and I’m now 40). It helped, but only for about 2 or 3 months. When I started, I would smoke half a bowl, and be good for a few hours before the pain came back full force. After 2 or 3 months, I could smoke constantly and not get any effect, regardless of strain (I tried several).

Then I switched to concentrates and wax. Again, it worked, for about the same amount of time. Now, I can dab constantly with no effect. I even tried decarbing the wax (@240 degF for an hour in the oven), filled a capsule with a quarter gram, took it, felt nothing. A couple hours later, I tried a half gram. Nothing. A couple hours after that, a gram, and still nothing. I don’t know if maybe I messed up decarbing it, but I’ve smoked a gram at a time with no effect as well.

I’m sorry for the length of this post, but I’m in a ton of pain and desperate, so I am hoping by describing what I’ve done in detail, someone can tell me what I am doing wrong, or how long I will need to abstain to get rid of this tolerance and is there anything I can do to expedite the process?

Thank you for your time.
