Thanks for your query.

I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.

Important aspects of your query are:
• 37 year old female
• Known case of Addisons disease
• Concern related to weed use.

Weed contain cannabis. As you are having problem of anxiety and stress (nerves) then smoking weed is harmful for you.

Cannabis itself increases anxiety and may also leads to panic attacks. Having addisons disease is itself a risk factor for anxiety and weed use will further exacerbate it.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.
