I have been taking Xanax for 25 years for Fibromyalgia and Anxiety. I am trying to wean myself off of it. Has anyone done this?

There is no difference between the two. CBD with THC I can handle but only in a very small amount. If I snake it it makes my anxiety and panic worse which I was told it can do by my therapy office

Me too! Can’t take the THC. Tried the CBD oil just once but now know the dosage is different for each person and to start just a drop a day and work up. Wonder how long it will take to quell the anxiety !!
Tried the cbd lozenges and gummy bears but didn’t help.
@rascal, Although I do not want to be negative, I do have an altered view of the response. Here is a link to a pretty good explanation of all facets of this issue. I also know that there is a Mayo video interview that covers this topic, which I have seen on Connect and is available online. I would hate for anyone to purchase something for which there is no hope of helping with a serious medical issue. I got caught in this trap with the mess in CA last year and succumbed out of desperation. For me, there was absolutely no pain assistance from hemp oil in any shape, form, or quantity.
Thank you for your reply! It’s such a confusing topic whether CBD helps with pain, anxiety, depression! Some very strong testimonials in its favor and others the opposite.
I’m sorry your experience was not good.
@artscaping Hi chris I agree I use hemp oil for the Omega,s that are in it My understanding is there is CO2extraction to get the pure cbd from the hemp seeds correct?
@lioness…..here is the quote from the linked article…..Hemp oil is produced from the seeds of the hemp plant, much like oils derived from olives, almonds, and coconuts. CBD is produced from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of the Cannabis sativa plant.
@artscaping Thanks for the clarification I dont much about it but learning
So, which is better?
@lioness, This compassionate industry is changing every day. Research is being conducted to increase the knowledge base and give hope to those whose lives may be changed for the better. The internet is a great place to find current and pertinent information. We just have to keep up with it all. G'night.

@artscaping thanks good luck with your move I live here in Long Beach.
@rascaI, I goofed. I neglected to attach the link to the question, "what is the difference between hemp and CBD oil." No wonder you asked, "so which one is best?" Here you go….https://honestmarijuana.com/hemp-oil-vs-cbd-oil/.

There is no difference so I’m told. I have both CBD w/so THC. Used the one with THC 8 drops this afternoon and I feel no relief from anxiety
@cdcc, I goofed yesterday and forgot to post the link to the issues about CBD. Here it is. I hope you find it helpful. https://honestmarijuana.com/hemp-oil-vs-cbd-oil/
Chris – Have you had success weaning from Xanax while on cbd oil ?
@rascal1, Good morning. Xanax has never been prescribed for me so I cannot help with your specific question. Perhaps someone else in our group will be more informed and able to respond.. Wishing you a peaceful day. Chris
So you’ve not personally used CBD at all with success?
