In 2015, Texas made the use of low-THC legal for patients with epilepsy. In 2019, they expanded the program to include other medical conditions (seizure disorders, multiple sclerosis (MS), spasticity, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), autism, terminal cancer, or an incurable neurodegenerative disease). To be eligible, patients (Texas residents) must be approved by a physician, who will then add them to the registry in the Compassionate Use Program. Once this is done, they may purchase low-THC, high-CBD cannabis at any Texas dispensary.

As of December 15, 2017, the department has issued three dispensing organization licenses, which include:

In order to purchase from a dispensary as a patient or the legal guardian of a patient, you will need state ID and the SSN (for the patient and legal guardian if applicable). 

In this post, we’ll give you the latest information on these dispensaries and how they are operating.
