Texas Medical Marijuana Program Information
In accordance with SB No. 339 and effective June 1st, 2015, Texas legalizes the use of low-THC and high-CBD cannabis for sale and patient use to treat intractable epilepsy.
“Low-THC Cannabis” means cannabis with less than 0.5% THC and greater than 10% CBD content by weight.
(For information on how and where to purchase medical marijuana, or how to apply for a Texas medical marijuana dispensary license, see: Texas Medical Marijuana Dispensary)
How do I become a Texas Medical Marijuana Patient?
Patients must be diagnosed with Intractable Epilepsy, where two or more treatment drugs have been inadequate in their ability to control the seizures. To be prescribed low-THC cannabis, patients must be examined by a qualified medical marijuana doctor (doctor must be qualified and registered with the Compassionate Use Registry) who has determined that advantages of Low-THC Cannabis outweigh the potential risks, and a second qualified physician has concurred on the patient’s medical record.
How do I become a Texas Medical Marijuana Doctor?
The Texas Department of Public Safety will create an online compassionate-use registry called The Compassionate-Use Registry, that catalogs registered prescriber physicians, the name and date of birth of patients, dosages prescribed, means of administration and the total amount of low-THC cannabis required to fill a patient’s prescription.
Physicians seeking to prescribe low-THC cannabis must meet the following state requirements:
the physician is licensed to practice, dedicating a significant portion of clinical practice to epilepsy
the physician is certified by a) the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in epilepsy or neurology or child neurology, or otherwise qualified for certification in epilepsy; or b) in neurophysiology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology or c) the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology.
Before prescription, the Physician must register as the prescriber for the patient in the Compassionate Use Registry. Registration must include the Physician’s name, the patient’s name and date of birth, dosage, means of administration and total amount of low-THC prescribed.
Physicians must create and sustain a patient treatment plan that indicates dosage, means of administration and planned duration of treatment. Medical use of low-THC cannabis may not include smoking. Doctors must also create a plan for monitoring patient symptoms and indicators of tolerance or other reactions.
Where can I find Medical Marijuana Doctors?
Texas Medical Marijuana dispensary licenses will be determined by the proximity of applicant to registered patients in the Compassionate Use Registry, though doctors will not be restricted to areas based off patient registry. This allows for doctors to serve as many areas in the state of Texas as possible, including Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, El Paso, Arlington, Corpus Christi, Plano, Laredo, Lubbock, Garland, Irving, Amarillo, Grand Prairie, Brownsville, McKinney, Killeen, Frisco, McAllen, and other Texan cities.
What else should I know about the state of Texas?
“The Lone Star State,” Texas is known for its large scope in both area and population. The second largest state in the United States, Texas is influenced by its Southern Dixie and Western Frontier roots. As a great state for higher education, Texas is home to numerous colleges and universities, including The University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and several others. One of the best destinations for sports entertainment, Texas hosts several of the elite teams across all of sports with San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Houston Astros, Dallas Mavericks, and others bringing championship titles back to Texas.

I am also from Cali w/ my med rec. From what I understand, medical marijuana is not accepted in Texas yet. It's supposed to be on one of the upcoming ballots. Until then, pain management by CBD is the only available source in Texas. I found some for vaping at a vape shop. I was told that people who already have recommendations in other states might be eligible for some kind of reciprocity where your home state would be able to mail you your meds. Sorry, I don't have all of the facts but I encourage you to do your own research on the matter. Hope this helps...

I am in need of a Cannabis Doctor very bad to check me out, and run test on me. I have been hurting since 2012. I have regular doctor's that have been working on my stomach for the last 3 years. I keep telling them that I know I have stomach issues, but the main problem is that my stomach muscles, or nerves have been damage. Acids are the lining of my stomach in 2012, and entered my body for years. In 2012 I started smoking Cannabis due to a pharmacy told me it would bandaid the problem. Now it's so bad that I am unable to work, can't walk to far or be out long due to pain, and vomiting the acids to this very day. I vomited this morning even though I had surgery on July 20th to stop me from vomiting. Usually I dry heave when I can't vomit. I bedridden most of the time unless I am sitting in a chair outside, but that gets to hurting after a little while. I know that Cannabis helps because I do smoke when I get the chance. It comes rarely that I can afford much at all. So I suffer through the month not being able to eat. After the surgery that I had. I have lost almost 50bls. 15 in the last two weeks.
Please help me if you can. This has affected my life more than eating. I now am on Nexus 20mg a day is all my insurance will cover, depression medication, anxiety medication cause I don't like going out in public due to problems, and everyone starting at me try to walk. I walk very slow, and no way I could jog or run anymore. On a weight limit of 5bls max.

I recently moved from California where I had my Medical Card and was treating my pain managegment from a tear in my ACL on my right knee. Since I have moved I have been having more and more issues with my pain because I cannot do anything besides ice and heat to help ease the pain. How in Texas am I able to get in touch with a doctor that can help me to be back on my CBD regimen? Any advice is appreciated.
