How can numbness in the arms, hands and face caused due to Cannabis smoking be treated?

Hello. I smoked indica three says ago, my third time smoking. I am still feeling some numbness throughout my body, especially in my arms, hands, and slightly in my face. Is there any way I can combat this? I know this is not normal. Thank you very much for your help.

Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, psychological effects are the most common with indica. This can either directly cause numbness or indirectly through hyperventilation.
Numbness is due to sick nerves this could be from vitamin deficiency, alcohol or heavy metal toxicity, but it wouldn't occur right after drug exposure.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
