I'm a 17 year old male who just recently (within a month or two ago) tried marijuana. The first and second time I tried it, I'm not entirely sure if I felt the effects or not, but I went on afterwards with no noticeable problems. The third time I tried it, which was 2-4 weeks ago, I had a very bad reaction to it. While I was "high," I couldn't even walk right and began to panic and experience feelings of paranoia and anxiety; it was very scary. I smoked a lot of weed during that session. The next day, I was still feeling wierd and I felt a continuous pressure at the back of my head, close to the area where the neck meets the back of the skull.

Not sure how frequently or severe it is, but sometimes I feel that pressure again at the back of my head, like right now. I am naturally a worrisome person; never had panic attacks but I do worry and stress myself out unnecessarily. I am unsure if this is anxiety related or if I am having an adverse reaction to the THC. I have also picked up the habit of drinking coffee; something I am going to stop immediately starting today because I learned that it affects blood flow to the brain and releases all sorts of hormones. I am just going to ask:

This feeling is sort of annoying, how long will it last and how long will the THC still be in my system? When will I no longer feel the effects? Is this permanent? I will never try weed or anything like this again and just want to not feel this pressure on the back of my head anymore.

This feeling will pass within 1-3 weeks of quitting smoking weed. This feeling is perfectly normal and is just all of the toxins leaving the neurons in your brain. You probably also feel like you are going crazy, but your not, it is simply all the toxins that have been built up leaving your system. Hack it out for the next few more days and you will see each day gets better :)

Exercise and stop eating fatty foods to speed up this process. Good luck!

I don't know about you guys, but I still have the pressure after 4 months of smoking weed (pressure at back of my head where neck meets head), but slowly afterward I began to experience a slew of other symptoms which also are lasting to this day. For me immediately after smoking weed in may I had intense pressure in my head for weeks, sometimes intensity would decrease a little. Now I have weak legs and arms, twitching throughout my body, still have the pressure too, swollen hands, eyes are always bloodshot now, extreme fatigue throughout the day. It got so bad I had to quit my job and move back home with my parents. The doctors are worried about some kind of muscular disorder now- all from smoking a ton of weed one weekend - none of it was laced - wtf

Thank you for your post. You gave me hope when I was starting to feel crazy. I began to wonder if I was poisoned or something. Heavy head and I feel like I'm out of body.

I've been feeling the same way for years. What was the final diagnosis?

I’m waiting for an answer as well. I thought the same symptoms with the back of my head was due to whip lash from a car accident I had a week later.

I ate two marijuana brownies and felt really dizzy after 30 minutes, and laid down the rest of the night. I never really noticed anything until two weeks later(one week was the car wreck) and I felt like a ping in the back of my head and immediately felt dizzy/nauseated.

I’m not sure if this was the marijuana or whiplash

I was 13 when I first smoked weed the first 3 times were all good the 4 time I got really really high. I stared to see millions and millions of sore everywhere like old tv static (the black and get dots looking buy see through sometimes purple orangy etc) and I began getting this really massive head ace like all the blood in my body was going to my head and it began getting really tight and really sore and painful and the back and the tip of my head anyway it was so painful I couldn't sleep it lasted all night through till the morning with a hangover effect like my brain just finished being stretched the f**k out. Anyway I woke up with the same dots and I've being seeing them ever since I'm 21 now and everyday I have the head pressure the back of my head I've had 2 ct scans and everything it's like it's grown of some sort tbh. Well ever since then I've smoked weed like 3 times from then to now and every time I get the head ace and the dots intensify and sh*t any ideas the doctors can not explain any of this sh*t. Thinking I might give it another go and deal with the pain till il use to it i dont know help me here

This happens to me also, cannabis blocks blood flow to the brain, due to increased heart rate and constricting blood vessels. It disturbs the brain,stem . this will cause further anxiety and heightens your senses if feeling that something is wrong.

This doesn’t make sense to me because THC is supposed to open up your blood vessels from my understanding.

Hey man, for most people the first couple of times you try weed you don't feel anything - normal you don't feel anything first few tries/sessions

Weed usually takes 4 weeks to get out of your system depending on how much you smoked and how often you did, you can take a urine test at your doctors for free if you want. - You should be 4 weeks max for THC to be out your system

If you feel that weed is not for you then that is a good thing, drugs are bad and they're ‘not for everyone’. Weed is bad for your health, don't let yourself try and trick you into making excuses for continuing to smoke weed. It is scientifically proven to have negative effects on your brain, cardiovascular health and much much more. Yes, it's good for glaucoma and to help you eat when you're going through cancer treatment etc etc. You don't need the psychoactive effects of weed for any positive health effects. Weed can be a good alternative to harder drugs for many illnesses but it's the CBD in the cannabis that’s good for your health not the unicorns and fairys. (yes, I know you don't see unicorns and fairies **** pot heads reading this, I've smoked more than you'll ever smoke in your life. Don't believe me? I challenge you to a smoke off xo) The psychoactive component of weed can also be a positive health effect for some people for example if you're miserable and old and can't seem to change that, then just roll a joint sit back and listen to some music/ watch a good stoner movie/ eat some donuts. (Sugar is horrible for your health, more so than fat FYI, maybe more than weed) - don't do drugs just because your friends do them, if you have to do something so you're not sitting there like a dweeb, have a couple beers, but don't become an alcoholic because that's probably worse than a stoner depending your personality. Remember weed can bring out who you really are, if you have an addictive personality then you're most likely going to repeat some bad habits regardless of your health. Just don’t do drugs kids, it’s not the be all end all. Vape or some other faggy sh*t like that. Like you said you’re naturally a worrisome dude so when you smoked weed you felt the feelings of anxiety etc which really sucks and if you continue to smoke because you like getting high, you might transfer the anxiety to when you’re sober and only when you’re stoned do you feel normal and not stressed, how do you think that’s going to affect your school and future job prospects, not good is the answer :DD Keep yourself busy studying working partying without drugs, if you smoke weed like once in a while at a party or something it’s cool, but just make sure you grow out of it and not let it effect your health or life. Find some role models and make some goals.
