Distract yourself with good vibrations. Turn on your favorite jam and get lost in the melody. You will quickly forget what is bothering you.

6. Exercise

I wouldn’t recommend this in all cases, but if you are into exercising, give it a whirl. Your heart rate is likely heightened as the cause or result of the paranoia, so take advantage of it with a run or a good workout.

7. Call your mom (or dad)

As long as you aren’t paranoid about your parents finding out about your cannabis use, give them a call. Parents are perfect for comforting you in times of need. Just make sure to return the favor to them if they ever need it.

8. Write about your experience

I encourage you to write about your feelings of paranoia. You can keep a journal or just a scrapbook of your experiences good or bad. Use them in the future to remind yourself that this isn’t a strange feeling. You know it, you’ve conquered it before—move on.

9. Try CBD oil

As the “anti-THC”, CBD is known to help people climb out of the darkness associated with cannabis side effects. “Professional” smokers are known to carry CBD oil like Charlotte’s Web with them for instances of extreme highs. No guarantee here, but there is a chance that CBD will help you to gather your thoughts in times of need.

10. Deep breaths and counting

Cannabis inspired paranoia is the chemical result of THC interacting with your endocannabinoid system. So you smoked some heavy sativa and things got out of hand—don’t worry. Control your breathing by taking breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. Count the seconds while you breathe. The resulting relaxation will center you.

By now you hopefully know which strains will give you anxiety and paranoia. Try to avoid these strains in the future. If one gets you by surprise, hopefully, these ten things will help you rise above the paranoia.
