Sounds like anxiety: Marijuana increases heart rate slightly & causes anxiety in some but any adverse effects should dissipate within several hours. It's possible what you smoked was adulterated. Your current symptoms sound like anxiety but could have other causes, like low blood sugar or hyperthyroidism.Magnesium (glycinate or taurate) may help, as can b complex, exercise, meditation & herbs like rhodiola.
