I don't smoke weed for that very reason. It gives me panic attacks. On the other hand, perhaps it's triggering an anxiety that you really must take notice of.

Are you ok now?

It isn't the weed. Although the weed can intensify anxiety. You should be checked with a doctor. It could be panic disorder.
