Hi, I smoked some weed around 3:45pm and around 15 minutes after, my heart rate increased HIGHLY to around 120+. It felt like I was gonna have a heart attack at any moment, with my chest beating hard. It s now 11:15pm and the heart rate is still around 80-90, with it still beating quite hard. What should I do?
