In brief: Prevention

The best treatment is prevention: don't smoke marijuana.
Other than that, use of relaxation techniques and imagery, controlled breathing and other cbt techniques used for panic attacks from any cause should help. Although it may be hard to remember the techniques while high.

Usually this results from ingesting rather than smoking. Ask someone to stay with you to coach you through it... marijuana is rarely if ever fatal even with massive overdoses so hang in there.

In brief: Panic after Pot

Easy answer is stop using marijuana.
This is the only way to prevent the cause-effect cycle. You will need to wait this out until the drug that is already in your system gets out.

In brief: Bad sign

Please consult a psychiatrist now, as this is indication of a much more serious underlying illness.
