Paranoia is an uncomfortable feeling. Cannabis use is sometimes associated with causing anxiety that can transform into paranoia. Ironically we continue to consume cannabis despite knowing that paranoia will creep up on us like moss on a garden fence. Hopefully, you can find some solace with these ten ways to defeat paranoia when you get too high.
1. Remember what you did
If you are starting to get paranoid and lost in stressful thoughts, take a breath and remember that you chose to consume cannabis. There have been good times and bad times, but you are still in control. You made the choice—you’ve got this.
2. Go outside
Whether you know it or not, your paranoia can be the result of not having enough space. Go outside for a walk and fresh air next time you feel the paranoia moss creeping.
3. Take a shower
Rinse the “heebie jeebies” off in a nice shower. Find the right temperature and introduce some aromatherapy. Try some soothing lavender to help calm your nerves.
