It's not unusual for your heartbeat to speed up after smoking marijuana, but it's effects only last for 4 hours. Perhaps you drank too much coffee?

Hello :) I have been smoking marijaunna heavily since i was about 14/15, and I am now 19 and have been smoking it almost every day for a year. The last few times I have smoked I have felt a weird sensation of numbness down my left hand side and an increased heart rate. I was wondering why this was, as it is a recent occurance.

Hello, I was a daily Marijuana user and i loved it i mean i smoked at least 3 times a day. I have had a tough year with my family and marijuana always helped me chill and relax but i smoked that legal Herb and i had a horrible panic attack where my heart was beating fast and i thought i was going to die. Now everytime after that when i use marijuana i have horrible paranoia and it feels like my heart just starts racing but when i have my friends feel my chest they say its pretty normal just a little fast. But too me it seems like i can hear and feel it beating in my chest. I m a pretty healthy kid no heart disease no asthema nothing like that. And i have a normal blood pressure when im not high

When i woke up this morning, i decided to smoke a joint, 10 minutes after smoking it, i had horrible heart pains and my heart rate went up rapidly. it lasted for 15 to 20 mins, but my heart was still pimping like mad. i couldnt stand still, had to keep moving felt better. i couldnt take it so i went into stages: rage, sleepy, even started to laugh to myself, it ended after an hour or so, but later on the day i can still feel my heart beat skip. what should i do?
