Drugs such as alcohol, marjuana, cocaine, and prescription painkillers can change the way the body and mind function.
People often have similar side effects from taking drugs, but for some drugs such as marijuana side effects can vary.
One of the most common reasons people use recreational marijuana is because they feel a calming sensation. Many people say that recreational marijuana calms their body and mind and it makes them feel like their problems go away while they are high. However, there are people who use recreational marijuana that experience paranoia. Some people report the feeling of being paranoid immediately after eating or inhaling recreational marijuana. They often feel like people are out to get them or they are in immediate danger. For this reason, some people do not like smoking or eating recreational marijuana. In addition to feeling paranoid from recreational marijuana, some people also feel disoriented. If someone does not enjoy the side effects of recreational weed, it is best if they do not try to use more to see if the side effects go away. Some people think that they did not smoke or eat enough weed, so if they smoke or eat more their paranoia and anxiety will get better. This does not usually work in people’s favor, because higher amounts of THC can increase the unsettling thoughts and feelings. If recreational weed causes more paranoid feelings for someone already experiencing anxiety, it is better for that person to seek medical help from their provider. Their provider may be able to prescribe an anti anxiety medication that does not have paranoia as a side effect.
