I smoke weed but i experience panic attacks as side effect so i thought i could try to take a 0.25mg Xanax (alprazolam) before smoking..Is that safe?

In brief: Sort of but...

This is safe from the perspective that there is no direct interaction between cannabis ; xanax (alprazolam), (alprazolam) but xanax (alprazolam) has a long list of potential side effects ; can be habit-forming (i feel cannabis is actually a far safer medicine!).
Consider natural anti-anxiety agents such as l-theanine, holy basil, 5-htp, passionflower, skullcap or valerian. One or more of these may work as well as xanax (alprazolam). See comment:.

There are MANY different strains of marijuana. One of the main differences between strains is the ratio of THC to CBD. THC can cause anxiety in many but CBD tends to be calming, so a strain with relatively high CBD may not make you anxious.
