Agoraphobia is a condition where a sufferer feels little to no control in unfamiliar situations. Common triggers are crowds, traveling, and wide-open spaces. For a lot of people, agoraphobia is not a social phobia, but others claim that their symptoms are compounded by a marked fear of social embarrassment. Those belonging in this latter group are often called social agoraphobics. Cannabis use has been linked with agoraphobia and anxiety disorder; a lot of these patients report higher agoraphobic tendencies after cannabis use.
