A Texas medicinal marijuana card is available to over a million Texans. Texas’ Compassionate Use Program now covers over 200 certified conditions for low-THC medical marijuana, despite being stricter than other states.
To begin, you must complete the following requirements to be eligible for a Texas medical marijuana card:
- Be a Texas resident.
- Have an approved condition.
- Receive a marijuana prescription through a doctor registered with the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT).
Then, see if you have a condition that has been approved. In Texas, there are over 200 approved medicinal marijuana prescription conditions, including:
- All forms of cancer (as of September 1, 2021)
- PTSD (as of September 1, 2021)
- And over 100 more conditions
- Talk to doctor
You’re ready to schedule your appointment once you’ve checked that you have an acceptable condition.
Bring any questions you may have to your consultation. After that, your doctor will enter your marijuana prescription into the Compassionate Use Registry electronically.
Fill Your Marijuana Prescription
You can complete your Texas medical marijuana card prescription at a local dispensary after your appointment. Even though Texas has three approved dispensaries, Compassionate Cultivation is the state’s only Texas-owned and-run dispensary.
Unlike typical pharmacies, patients must notify medical marijuana shops that their doctor has entered their marijuana prescription into the system. You can call or use the prescription fill form to get your prescription filled.
Finally, choose how you would like to receive your prescription.
