Qualifying Conditions

We work with patients to use medical marijuana in addition to their current treatment plans for these qualifying conditions. Some of our patients respond so well to medical cannabis, they’re able to decrease the amount of other medications they’re taking, including opioids.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (Diagnosed or Undiagnosed)

Our highly trained clinicians all do PTSD diagnostic evaluations.


Muscle Spasticity (Spasms)

Muscle spasticity is when muscles become stiff, tighten up and resist stretching. Patients with damage to their brain and nerves can develop muscle spasticity, and eventually, these muscle contractions can cause severe pain, discomfort, and/or deformity.

Muscle spasticity can come from a very large range of underlying conditions, including back pain, joint pain, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Charcot-Marie-Tooth, stroke and many other conditions. Treatment for muscle spasticity-related symptoms is usually provided in a 3:1 or 1:1 CBD/THC ratio product.



There are few standard treatments for peripheral neuropathy, a condition which affects 25-30% of all Americans. Peripheral neuropathy can be debilitating and especially difficult to alleviate. Recent research suggests that cannabis may finally provide relief. At Texas Cannabis Clinic, Matthew Brimberry, MD, treats patients of all ages with neuropathy in and around Austin, Houston, Arlington, San Antonio, and the entire state of Texas through telemedicine. To learn what Dr. Brimberry and the team at Texas Cannabis Clinic can do for you, book a telehealth appointment today.



Migraine is a type of headache that manifests as a throbbing and pulsating pain on one side of the head. There are several different types of migraine, but the two main types are: migraine with aura (also known as classic migraine, visual disturbances and other neurological symptoms appear before the actual headache strikes) and migraine without aura (also known as common migraine, the pain strikes with no warning.)

What Are Migraines Symptoms?
In addition to the unilateral throbbing headache, migraines are usually accompanied by symptoms like:

Nausea and vomiting
Sensitivity to light sound or smell
Blurred vision.


Autism Spectrum Disorder

Medical marijuana Texas laws allow us to treat an array of symptoms that come with autism. Common symptoms such as aggression, self-injury, hyperactivity, insomnia, and anxiety have been shown to be improved with cannabinoids. A recent study showed an overall improvement of these symptoms in 75% of autistic children treated with a 20:1 ratio of CBD/THC.


Seizures and Epilepsy

Medical marijuana cannabis contains antispasmodic qualities, which have shown to be an effective treatment for some seizures. Cannabis oils that are rich in CBD are the preferred method for treatment. The tincture ratio of 20:1 CBD/THC is what usually works best for these conditions.

Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other Incurable Neurodegenerative Diseases

According to medical marijuana Texas law, patients who suffer from debilitating neurological conditions such as M.S, Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease are also eligible to enroll in the Compassionate Use Program.

Common symptoms related to neurodegenerative diseases that cannabis can be used for are pain, muscles spasticity, tremors, insomnia, appetite loss and aggressive behaviors. A list of approved conditions that can be found below.


Medical cannabis can help manage cancer symptoms and many side effects caused by cancer treatments and traditional medication, dramatically improving the patients’ quality of life.

Pain: pain is one of the most frequent symptoms among cancer patients regardless of where they are in their healing journey. Cannabinoids present in medical cannabis have highly effective anti inflammatory and analgesic effects that help manage pain, but don’t present the same undesirable side effects inherent to traditional medicine used for its treatment such as opioids.

Neuropathy: neuropathy (the sensation of weakness, tingling, burning or numbness due to damage of the nerves outside the brain and the spinal cord) is a very common cancer treatment side effect, especially from chemotherapy. CBD and THC are effective at interacting with the endocannabinoid system’s receptors responsible for pain management and have proven to be a highly effective treatment option against neuropathy.

Nausea and vomiting: cancer-related complications can induce nausea and vomiting, yet some treatments used to battle the disease cause the same effects in many patients (particularly chemotherapy), resulting in a compounding of the issue. THC is used to provide relief to cancer patients as it effectively curbs nausea.

Appetite and weight loss: THC stimulates the appetite and therefore it is a good alternative not only to treat appetite suppression but also weight loss, particularly in patients with advanced cancer. After pain and nausea, appetite is the third most frequent physical symptom prompting cancer patient’s to use medical cannabis.

Neuropsychiatric symptoms: often, cancer patients experience neuropsychiatric symptoms (anxiety, depression, insomnia) derived from the physical impact that the disease or its subsequent treatment have, not to mention the diagnosis itself. The use of cannabis for management of neuropsychiatric symptoms is almost as prevalent as its use for management of physical symptoms.


Multiple Sclerosis

According to medical marijuana Texas law, patients who suffer from debilitating neurological conditions such as M.S, Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease are also eligible to enroll in the Compassionate Use Program.

Medical marijuana is a treatment option for people with MS at Texas Cannabis Clinic. A cannabis ratio of 1:1 CBD:THC is usually offered to relieve muscle spasticity symptoms


Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a disease characterized by extensive damage over time to motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. Motor neurons are nerve cells that are responsible for the communication, the signals, taking place between the brain and the muscles. The active ingredients in medical cannabis — tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), also known as cannabinoids, are used to treat pain, muscle spasms, and appetite loss that comes from this disease. They are believed to work as antioxidants and as anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective agents, and for these reason might slow or prevent further damage to nerve cells in ALS.
