I quit smoking weed started smoking cigarettes tried to smoke weed again now every time I try to smoke weed I get anxiety when will it disappear?

In a few hours: Your anxiety from smoking marijuana should disappear within a few hours as the effects of the marijuana dissipate, but will likely come back every time you smoke it. While most find cannabis to be calming, many react with anxiety. Possibly the combination of tobacco & cannabis is causing this; in either event stop smoking cigarettes-it's the best thing you can do for your health. See my comment:. ...Read more

However, it may feel like a much longer time if you are anxious. If your anxiety persists beyond this it is not directly caused by the marijuana.
