Cannabis is known to precipitate panic attacks both during intoxication & withdrawal. Howsoever, cannabis withdrawal does not last 5 months, and your current anxiety symptoms are those of apprehensive anxiety, completely unrelated to biological effects of cannabis. In fact, cannabis only has psychological dependence & no physical dependence. Kindly continue being in regular contact with your psychiatrist. Both medication & psychotherapy will benefit you, but you need to sustain the treatment suggested by your doctor.
You are young & have a long way to go, so overcome this stage of doubting self & others & continue with the support offered by your doctor.
Good luck!
