Get Approved and Register With the State
When you meet with the doctor, you’ll find out whether or not you qualify for MMJ. In order to do so, you must be diagnosed with one of the handfuls of medical conditions that qualify you for medical cannabis in the state.
If you do qualify, then your physician is going to enter your “prescription” for medical cannabis into the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT).
Get Your MMJ Approval and Start Shopping!
After you’ve been approved for medical cannabis, you can head to any licensed Texas dispensary and get the products you want.
Unlike other states, Texas residents don’t actually get tangible medical cannabis cards like other states do. Instead, the dispensaries you go to will look you up in the CURT database to ensure you’re a patient and can access medical cannabis products.
So, once you’ve been approved and added to CURT, you’re all set to start buying products.
Texas Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions
In Texas, you may only partake in the Texas Compassionate Use Program (CUP) if you have one of the

Can Minors Get Medical approval in Texas?
Absolutely! There is no age limit to who can qualify for cannabis prescriptions in Texas; however, those patients under the age of 18 will need a legal guardian to sign off on their paperwork.

Unfortunately, Elevate Holistics doesn’t offer medical approval for minors at this time. But, if that changes, we will be the first to let you know.

Frequently Asked Questions
In Texas, medical marijuana is legal for qualifying patients who have received a prescription from their doctor.
The state legalized medical marijuana in 2019 with the passage of House Bill 3703, which allows patients with specific debilitating medical conditions to access cannabis products containing low amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Recreational marijuana is not legal in Texas. Possession of less than two ounces of marijuana is considered a Class B misdemeanor and may result in up to 180 days in jail and/or a $2,000 fine.
Possession of more than two ounces but less than four ounces is considered a Class A misdemeanor and may result in up to one year in jail and/or a $4,000 fine.
More severe penalties are applied for possession of more than four ounces or the sale or distribution of any amount of marijuana. In some cases, felony charges may apply under certain conditions.
To be eligible to receive a prescription for low-THC cannabis products, you must demonstrate your proof of residency, as well as your age. (Though, if you’re a minor, you can still get your card — just with a caregiver.)
You do not have to pay any state fee for a Texas medical marijuana card.
People choose to get their Texas medical marijuana approval online for so many different reasons. Primarily, though, having a TX MMJ approval allows for ample legal protection, as the Lone Star State has some of the harshest marijuana laws in the country.
Plus, you can gain access to high-quality — much safer — cannabis products with an MMJ card.
Since you don’t receive a physical card, you only have to pay the cost of your medical marijuana approval appointment — and this cost will vary depending on where you go.
At Elevate Holistics, you can get an online appointment with our Texas doctors for just $130. When you renew, you’ll pay $105, instead.
Technically, no, you cannot be a caregiver in Texas, as the state doesn’t have an official MMJ caregiver program.
If you’re a minor, you can qualify for medical cannabis, but your parent or guardian must be listed on the application itself in order to be approved.
Texas medical marijuana laws are a bit strange. If you’re curious, you can head over to our TX marijuana law page to learn more.
No, you cannot grow marijuana at home in the Lone Star State.
Texas is holding strong on its stance on the illegality of this crop. However, if the plant is dried and doesn’t have more than 0.3% weight of THC, then it is considered to be hemp and is not unlawful.
There is some gray area in this legal matter because there isn’t a specific law stating that the growing of marijuana is illegal. However, Texas authorities consider “growing” as “possession.”
Unfortunately, Texas does not offer medical marijuana reciprocity for other cardholders.
Yes, but very few. Right now, there are only three medical marijuana dispensaries in the entire state.
Unfortunately, the Second Amendment doesn’t protect registered MMJ patients from prosecution. What happens if I’m caught with weed and a gun? Anyone who possesses a firearm and uses medical cannabis is in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 922. This can get you 10 years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines.
