“Street marijuana will not cause panic attacks if it has low levels of THC,” said addiction specialist Dr. Cali Estes. “However, if they’re dabbing or have a high THC content, such as one of the higher strains of marijuana, it will likely cause panic attacks because it acts more like LSD,” Dr. Estes said. Some strains of marijuana help users relax, while others may cause paranoia and anxiousness.
However, it strongly depends on how much you take. For example, if you take an edible worth 200 percent THC, which is the active ingredient in weed that gets you high, you’re far more likely to feel extremely anxious — like you’re doing LSD or Molly and you’re not gonna be able to talk. “For users who have built a tolerance over time, ingesting an edible with similar THC content is more likely to make the user feel sleepy. So it just depends on the individual and how much they take, in addition to which strain they take,” Dr. Estes said.
