Brief Answer:
Dry mouth is due to marijuana use

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic

Cottonmouth feeling is mostly due to dry mouth. Dry mouth is common after marijuana use. It is nothing to be worried about.

You can stay well hydrated. Drink sips of water, plenty of it. Chewing a gum after that can also relieve dry mouth.

Red bumps on the tongue are likely due to transient papillitis, especially since you have dry mouth. It is a very common condition in young adults. It will go away without any treatment, just remain well hydrated.
