How To Smoke Weed Without Paranoia — A Deep Dive Into The Science Behind The Feeling

"This is correct, says Dr. Jamie Corroon, medical advisor at CV Sciences and the medical director at the Center for Medical Cannabis Education. He says this anxiety response is related to THC use, though it is largely dose-dependent."
