    This is a pretty uncommon symptom, and I don't think that the phenomenon has ever been studied.  It is so uncommon that I went online to see if anyone was posting their experiences on marijuana withdrawal tinnitus.  People have reported withdrawal related tinnitus.  From what I could learn from the posts, it looks like it takes a few months for the tinnitus to resolve.  Tinnitus is an extremely common symptom and can result from a variety of medical conditions and medications.  It would probably be a good idea to see your doctor to make sure that the tinnitus is not due to an unrelated medical condition.
