Hi,

You must quit weed completely. The abnormal weird sensation could become worse. Weed is known to cause acute psychosis which might worsen the overall clinical picture.

Wait for about a week of stopping weed and if the symptoms persist and become worse then visit a doctor for help.

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