It takes 4 to 8 weeks to finally get in your system and work. So give it time and hang in there. In the meantime keep yourself entertained. And forced yourself to do thing even if you will awful. I still feel like pure crap but I am able to function by forcing myself. I walk around all day with a brain that won't shut up and feeling like I'm in a dream and everything around me including people are not real so yeah it SUCKS

Why would you do that? You won't feel any better if you don't try to stick to the medication until it works.

You know I had my first ever panic attack after smoking weed one time, however I had smoked weed 100's of times previous too this. But for whatever reason this one time I smoked I had my first ever panic attack. I use to think there might be a connection between the two, but in reality I don't think there is. I could be wrong, but I think it just is a coincidence for quite a few people. However with that being said I have been 'diagnosed' since 2008, and this happened the summer of 2006. I still have anxiety and panic to this day and take medicine for it. However it does get better, you will have many ups and downs. But it will eventually get better!

When was the last time you smoked? All the symptoms you have described are scary and worrisome, however they are also common symptoms of panic and anxiety. I've had just about every symptom or sensation you could think of because of my anxiety.

Well one think about weed is, it is not addictive like other drugs are. How long have you been feeling this way?

You know Lovedovey0519, it seems like everyday there is a new post regarding having gotten their first panic attack after smoking weed. Whether it was the first time or many times before. I wonder as you do, if there is a true connection between anxiety and weed. What about the rest of us who have never touched weed and one day get our first panic attack? None of you have ever mentioned what the doctors say about this connection. Is it possible that we all look for a reason when something so horrific comes out of the blue. I don't know what the answer is. But I'd sure like to know. I'm glad that you have done better along the way. Sometime the answer isn't that clear cut. Thanks for always being so positive.

I asked my psychiatrist who is now head of psychiatry at a hospital about there being a connection with weed and anxiety. He said to his knowledge and his studies that there isn't that weed actually is supposed to help and mellow anxiety. Now whether he is right or wrong I do not know honestly. But I do find it strange that sooo many people experience anxiety or their first panic attack after smoking weed. Might be one of those things we never truly know the answer too!

Thanks for letting me know. You may be right in that it will remain a mystery. Take care.

I too have had my first panic attack from smoking weed (before I had the disorder) I had always wondered if this had anything to do with my attacks later on

Same thing happened to me. I never had anxiety. I would do anything and everything without any bit of fear. 5 years ago I got my first panic attack smoking (after 3 years of smoking every day) and then the 2 times I smoked after that. Then I started getting ocular migraines. Since that day, I have suffered from awful anxiety and panic attacks. I wonder if the marijuana was masking a disorder? I really wish there was an answer..

I was literally so happy and spontaneous. Had no problem with crowds or lights or anything! Not I'm afraid of everything!! And it gets worse for me with every test they perform because I realize it is in my head and can't be fully cured. I wish you the best. If you ever need to talk I'm here..

I'm sorry but I cant believe that most people still don't have the knowledge that weed in some people can cause serious illness.My son has now suffered terribly with schizophrenia for years now and as a result ruined a perfectly normal life because he regularly smoked weed

Reply

bengal2013, I am very sorry to hear that about your son. I truly believe more studies need to be done in order to get the answers as to why this happens to some and not others. Thank you for sharing what must be so painful for you.

Do your son start having schizophrenia because of weed ?

Reply

Yes he was perfectly fine,he was very intelligent and a great sportsman.Seemingly because his brain was still developing in his teens weed can reap damage to the brain chemistry.you will always get people in denial but I can assure you this was the cause

It was more than likely laced with something if it caused that. Not to start an argument by any means at all, and I am extremely sorry to hear about your son! But there are soo many people who use THC as part of a treatment for anxiety! Also everyone's body is different and reacts to things differently. I never would have thought in a million years that I would read what I am reading about people smoking weed and having their first panic attack like myself.
