I've had Cushing's Syndrome/Disease for about 3 years now, and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience or knowledge on the issue? Figured this was the best place to look. I know smoking marijuana raises cortisol levels, but does anyone know anything else about usage and this disorder?

I'm not, I'm wondering if it's cool to smoke while having Cushing's.

According to this study, cannabis does not mess with your cortisol levels.

Awesome.

Does anyone with Cushings or knowledge of Cushing's have any info they can give me? There literally aren't many people out there that smoke and have Cushings, and all the Cushing's support forums out there are kinda clueless about marijuana.

I know you made your last post about Cushing's and Marijuana use over a year ago but was wondering if you came up with any answers? I have Cushing's Disease and smoke marijuana, so I may be able to help with some questions....
