How Do I get a Medical Marijuana Prescription in Texas?

What's the Process?

Assuming you have a qualifying condition under the Texas Compassionate Use Act (Senate Bill 339), the process to get a Medical Marijuana Rx in Texas is simpler than most would imagine. 

Qualifying conditions include, but are not limited to, PTSD, cancer, autism, neurodegenerative diseases, neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, muscle spasms and spasticity, epilepsy and seizure disorders, and many many more subcategories of these conditions and diseases. 

Step 1:

Step 2:

Upload/send or email your proof of diagnosis, which often can be obtained through your primary care physician or specialist, to Texas Cannabis Clinic. If you are taking medications for a qualifying condition, sometimes that can be a proof of diagnosis. Also, if you believe you have PTSD but have never been diagnosed, Texas Cannabis Clinic clinicians can diagnose you during your initial visit. 

Step 3:

Schedule your telemedicine appointment. Texas Cannabis Clinic does not have physical offices to be seen in. This is commonplace for medical cannabis clinics in Texas. During your initial appointment, you will have a professionate telemedicine call over your computer or phone, lasting about 15-30 minutes.

Next Steps:

Upon payment of your telemedicine appointment, you will receive a personalized medical cannabis prescription. You will then fill your prescription at Texas Original or your preferred Texas dispensary.

Will I get a Medical Marijuana Card? 

Unlike other medical states, Texas does not use medical marijuana cards. Instead, patients with qualifying conditions may obtain a medical marijuana prescription from a doctor registered in the program.
