My Tourettes and marijuana

I have an odd question that I tried to look on the internet but couldn't find an answer. Im not sure if this is the right subreddit to post this but it looked like the best match.

Growing up I had delt with ticks that went from just my hands clenching and shoulder going into my neck to itching (?) The sides of my head very fast and erratically. My father had some ticks but it wasn't as obvious as mine. Anyway, over time I've learned to tame them and control them mostly in public but every now and then in private I'll find myself doing it.

Eventually I found myself using pot frequently and every time I would get to a good solid high my Tourettes would come out and the higher I get the worse it becomes. This isn't an issue if I smoke alone but if im with friends it gets to the point that some of them get concerned and I get very embarrassed.

I know that leg twitching is common but this is at the point where it's like my body's goal is to just seize out whenever I smoke.

Does anyone know how I could fix or calm the ticks down when I smoke or why it happens? It happens no matter what strand I smoke and taking cbd supplements don't seem to help either.
