Ive actually heard of this, some people have a very strange reaction to marijuana and to drinking also. Maybe its still in your system. I drank wayyyy to much one night and had horrible dizziness pressure in my head and felt off balance for a couple of weeks. Im not sure why it happened but it was very scary for me I have not drank like that and dont plan to ever again. You should go to the doctor just to make sure that you are ok.... Im sure that you are. Good luck

That sounds like a crazy reaction to weed. Maybe it was laced with something else? Also maybe now you are having anxiety due to smoking the marijuana because you really didnt want to do it etc etc. If your head doesnt clear up soon I would reccommend seeing a doctor. And first and formost relax!!! You are probably making everything worse by thinking to much and dwelling on it.  Good luck.

You can relax. You had an anxious reaction to the marijuana. This is actually quite common.  It did not harm you in any way, didn't make you "crazy" and it is looong gone from your system.

It isn't abnormal to have some residual anxiety after an incident like this.  The very best thing you can do is try to forget about it and stay away from weed in the future.  If you continue to be anxious, then see your doctor about getting some help for the remaining anxiety.

There are no long term effects, you are dealing with anxiety.  Take care!

Hey,

I once had a psychological reaction to smoking marijuana. I smoked a lot beforehand throughout my life but that one time, witch was the last, I smoked and I had a seriously bad psychological reaction. I had like a bad panic attack but it lasted 3 months and I felt I was losing control of my self, just like you. And now 4 years have past since then and actually, after three months I got fully better. But recently I have been going through another hard time. So, life can be psychologically difficult at times, but mariguana specifically is known to cause bad psychological reactions. But the good news is, is that I have never heard about someone who had a bad reaction from marijuana and didn't get better. Also, even if marijuana doesn't cause everyone to have such a severe reaction, it certainly makes a lot of people nervous. It is just sometimes it can cause a bad reaction, where we can become dissociated. But I got completely better from it and I was in rough shape! So I know you and anyone can. well, I am optimistic in general, cos I believe there is always hope to becoming well and happy and loving! It sounds like you are already getting better, but you very likely still may feeling anxious about it and afraid of what happened, and anxiety/worrying can cause a lot of physical symptoms. But you can get fully better from this. And obviously stay away from marijuana. When you get to my age, 29, smoking weed (marijuana) is not cool at all! :)  But yeh, so I fully recovered from a seriously bad reaction to marijuana and I have read many stories on here where others have experienced the same thing, and they are otherwise caring and sensitive outgoing people like yourself. So you'll be alright and you can message me if you would like. I also have a fate with the numbers 9 and 4 so that is interesting. It's not that weird considering all cultures have certain lucky numbers :)  Well take care and you will be alright and can and will get better and be your caring, calm, generous and outgoing self.. those are good descriptive words of a good person :)  
Dearly, Ash

No, the marijuana is not still in your system, it is long gone.  What you're feeling is anxiety and anxiety can cause a number of symptoms.  The sensation of "feeling unreal" is called derealization...do a search and read about it. Anxiety causes that as well.

If you're finding it hard to move past this, then I think it would be a great idea to have a talk with your doctor and start addressing the anxiety, either with meds, therapy, or both.  You WILL get through this.  I know you feel awful right now, but you won't feel like that forever.  Get some help with the anxiety and try to put the episode out of your mind as much as you can.

Hang in there!

There's really no way to answer that.  Some people are able to put this kind of thing behind them right away, others end up needing some professional help to address the anxiety.  It just depends.  If you are feeling better and the anxiety is improving, then things are moving in the right direction.

I always recommend keeping busy and having a lot of distractions, and you can probably see how that would be helpful, because, like you stated, it's when you're sitting down thinking when you become anxious.

Derealization can take a little while to go away.  Basically, for most people it just all of a sudden is gone one day.  That's how it happened to me.  Again, try hard not to focus on the symptoms, as that just fuels the anxiety.  While DP is certainly a very unnerving sensation, it is harmless and will not hurt you.
