Surprise! You don't actually need a medical card like other states, but you still have to follow a process in order to access the very limited medical cannabis in Texas.

Step 1 — Register to Qualify for Low-THC Medical Cannabis:

Register on the CURT Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT). CURT is the system that allows physicians to register and prescribe low-THC cannabis to patients with certain medical conditions. To qualify for low-THC medical cannabis in Texas, you must be a permanent resident of the state of Texas. Texas Occupations Code §169.001 defines “medical use” as the ingestion by a means of administration other than by smoking. Dispensing organizations can search for the patient within CURT and dispense the medication according to the prescription.

Step 2 — Get a Medical Cannabis Doctor:

Connect with our doctor! The Elevate Holistics' certified MMJ doctor will evaluate your condition and discuss potential treatment options. If your physician determines cannabis is right for you, they will register you with Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT). Patients do not need a written prescription since the physicians enter the prescription into CURT for the Dispensary to validate. Texas does not provide medical ID cards at all.

The initial evaluation visit costs $150, which will not be charged if your doctor believes that your online visit failed to qualify you for medical cannabis. Proof of ID and the last 5 digits of your social security number are required to purchase your medicine.

Step 3 — Visit a Dispensary:

Get to the dispensary! It really is that easy in Texas if you qualify.
