Your adrenal glands are endocrine glands that are responsible for releasing hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) in response to stress on your body. If your adrenals are overtaxed due to an overabundance of emotional, physical and mental stress, it can lead to a condition known as adrenal fatigue.
As someone that was on several medications for several years and cannabis oil 3 years I stressed out my adrenals and developed adrenal fatigue. Arenal fatigue is a decrease in the adrenal glands’ ability to carry out this normal function. It is commonly caused by chronic stress from any source (including emotional, physical, mental, or environmental) that exceeds the body’s capacity to adjust appropriately to the demands placed on it by the stress. Medications and chronic illness put a lot of stress on the body and my guess is most people with chronic illness do have some form of adrenal fatigue.
