Anxiety and weed

Posted , 3 users are following.

it seems like I've always had a tiny bit of anxiety, but it was always at bay and not too bad. I've had a few panic attacks but not much else, then roughly 4 months ago I had some weed with a few friends which I've only had a few times before because I hate smoking due to asthma, then it seems like since that night it's made all my anxiety come out at once. 

My heart has never felt the same since, I'm way more panicky, I think anything I have could mean I'm dying and so on.

My question is can one night of smoking weed bring all this out, or do you think it was always going to come out at some point?

    Hello Andrew smoking weed can cause paranoia and It doesn't help with anxiety either. You would be best not to smoke weed again. Have you seen your GP about your anxiety, It may be worth disscussing It and ask what your options are for treatment. Try deep breathing exercises and find ways to relax. Soothing music or going for a walk. Do things that you enjoy, to take your mind off things.

      Just feels like my anxiety got way worse after that one night, regret it a lot. I saw my GP years ago about it and got some CBT but it was mainly for depression at the time, I'm going to go for my anxiety now. It's not too bad to be honest, the chest pains are only bad when I'm stressed so I don't think any medication is needed! Thanks for the reply!

    Weed is not for you. It can Trigger underlying mental problems, paranoia and irratabilty. Hopefully the weed was not laced. You might have worsened your asthma causing breathing issues triggering worse anxiety. Not worth any of this really.
