Hell yeah, stepping down gradually is the way to go. I'm doing this whilst gradually increasing CBD flower consumption. I only spring for CBD that has 0.1%THC MAX verified by a lab- by itself, not enough to make me feel high. This has actually make stepping down enjoyable. I'm down to blending 0.02 of THC flower with anywhere from 0.02-0.05 of CBD and it feels great. Consuming too much THC herb has become a lose-lose - it's wasteful and it brings up paranoia anxiety and foggy headed laziness. I'm to the point where I don't consume THC flower by itself at all anymore. The high has too many of the negative characteristics. But stick a bunch of CBD flower in with it and control your ratio and it's a whole nother animal.
