Marijuana and Adrenal Fatigue

Posted on

Marijuana has been researched for years. It has great medical benefits for those who have pain, anxiety, depression, glaucoma, AIDS/HIV, migraines, severe gut issues, insomnia, ptsd, cancer, and etc. However, according to the latest research high thc marijuana isn’t so good for those with chronic fatigue syndrome, adrenal insufficiency, or adrenal fatigue. The problem is what the THC does to the adrenals. The THC causes cortisol levels to rise. This in turn puts more stress on the adrenals which then makes the adrenals weaker.
Researchers have found the high CBD low THC products don’t stress the adrenals. Anyone who has fatigue problems should stay with the high CBD products and steer clear of the high THC products.

Tired all the time?
