Curious about Compassionate Cultivation’s newest medical cannabis product? Here we’ll address top FAQs about our new “balanced” medical cannabis tincture formulated with a 3:1 ratio of CBD to THC.
Q: Why is Compassionate Cultivation introducing a new 3:1 CBD to THC formulation at this time?
Compassionate Cultivation is releasing this formulation to provide more treatment options for Texas patients in light of recent legislation expanding medical cannabis access to patients with a range of new conditions, including:
- all forms of epilepsy and other seizure disorders,
- multiple sclerosis,
- amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS),
- terminal cancer, and
- incurable neurodegenerative diseases.
Q: What is a “balanced” medical cannabis formulation?
“Balanced” refers to more proportionate ratios of CBD and THC in cannabis-based medicine. Compassionate Cultivation’s original Lone Star tincture and spray are high-CBD formulations with a 20:1 CBD to THC ratio specifically developed for epilepsy patients. Medical research has shown that more balanced ratios can be effective in addressing additional symptoms associated with some of the recently expanded list of qualifying conditions such as multiple sclerosis, spasticity, ALS, terminal cancer and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Now that the Texas medical cannabis program has been expanded to include these new conditions, we are dedicated to meeting the needs of this expanded patient group with a broader range of medical cannabis formulations.
Q: Who will the new formulation be available to?
Any Texas patients diagnosed with a qualifying condition will be able to access Compassionate Cultivation’s new formulation with the active participation and oversight of a registered physician. Their physician will need to enter them into the CURT registry and enter a prescription specifying dosage. Be sure to have the doctor let the dispensary know about the prescription as well.
Q: When will the 3:1 formulation become available for Texas patients?
Our new 3:1 ratio formulation will be available early September of 2019.
Q: How will the 3:1 medical cannabis tincture be priced?
The 3:1 formulation tincture will be priced at $90 per 30ml bottle and $50 per 15ml bottle.
Q: Does the new formulation come in different flavors?
The new 3:1 formulation will be available in the same flavors as Compassionate Cultivation’s 20:1 formulation, including cherry, mint and unflavored. Click here for more information on our 3:1 formulation.
Q: Where can patients get this new product?
Registered patients can purchase the new 3:1 cannabis-based medicine at Compassionate Cultivation’s Austin-area dispensary, located at 12701 Lowden Lane in Manchaca. All of our high-quality cannabis-based medicines are also available statewide through our delivery service.
Q: Is Compassionate Cultivation developing any other formulations?
Yes! Compassionate Cultivation is developing a variety of formulations to meet the needs of a growing patient population and provide doctors with a broader selection of cannabis-based medicines to prescribe for a wider array of qualifying medical conditions.
