Discuss.Welcome to the 3rd edition.
This is the place to discuss anything and everything cannabis and anxiety/paranoia related.
Right, this is the place for all discussions/questions about anxiety and paranoia caused by cannabis. This is quite common, especially with very strong weed. Some people experience it when they first start smoking, posssibly because of the strangeness of the experience. Some people just find cannabis to be anxiogenic; it's not for everyone. In other cases, people who have been heavy smokers for years develop it; this seems to be particularly common with those who started smoking at a young age.
Exercise is a great way to deal with anxiety. Go for a walk, or just occupy yourself. Sitting there with your mind racing is the worst thing you can do. Downers can combat anxiety, but it's a slippery slope, and you wouldn't be the first to find yourself physically dependent on benzos/opiates. Not smoking is also a good tactic for avoiding weed-related anxiety.
Anyway, we're starting from scratch guys, so please drop some knowledge all up in here.
This thread is traditionally very helpful, so let's keep it respectful. Any questions regarding these two topics will likely be merged here.
