It would be wrong to attribute everything to cannabis.. No one can tell it with 100% confidence what was the cause but cannabis intake do cause change in the sleep pattern....if you are experiencing these dreams frequently than we can associate your symptoms to weed... But on the basis of just one incident nothing can be confirmed....also on the basis of the fact that cannabis cause panic attacks and in it people have extreme sweating we can suggest that you had a panic attack ...but not with conformity....take care
