Has marijuana caused anyone else anxiety?

So, before i tell my story, I want to start by saying that I had slight anxiety in middle school and was treated for it, eventually making it go away for good. I went all through high school and the first semester of college without any extreme anxiety or worry, but everything has changed now. I smoked marijuana with a friend after finals week ended my first semester, and i had an extreme anxiety attack. At the time i didn't know what was happening because i had never had one before. it seemed as though everything i worried about would happen to me. Ever since, I've been experiencing extreme fear and anxiety every day. I feel completely out of touch with reality and I seem to always be scared and anxious about something completely irrational. Is it normal that this all came about just from smoking weed? Ive been experiencing it for a little over a month.

Everybody is different. Ive seen ppl react the same way you did to weed, i personally smoke it when i get panicky and it helps me. I dont know why its bothering you still considering you only smoked the one time. Could it be a reaction with some meds you might be on? Maybe its as simple as going back to what helped you in high school. And id say, most importantly, no more weed for you my friend, lol. Try to learn some deep breathing exercises and some grounding techniques for when the panic hits. If none of that helps at all it might be time to go see a doctor. I wish you the best of luck :)

Not sure what irrational thoughts you've experienced, but my thought is that the weed opened up the can of worms in your head you didn't intend to think too much on. I've experienced great anxiety with weed (numerous times to be embarrassingly honest) and found out some of the causes with this link: http://forum.grasscity.com/apprentice-tokers/856460-my-insecurities-come-out-when-high.html

Marijuana makes me anxious AND just plain nutty... I have had many a bad and some somewhat embarrassing experiences too smoking that I don't know why I even bothered to keep trying it. Peer pressure I suppose. People would tell me I wasn't smoking with the "right" people. I learned no one was the right people. I've pretty much tried it all, and I can't believe the most natural of them, had such a horrible effect. I wish I could feel what everyone else who enjoys it feels. Not meant to be for me...at least I have some entertaining stories to remember :) now that I've quit all that stuff...When I have some time, I will read that link pukingdopa....
