1. Find Out if You Qualify 

Unlike other medical states, Texas does not accept out of state medical cannabis cards. Instead, Texans with qualifying conditions may obtain a medical cannabis prescription from a doctor registered in the program. To qualify, you must meet the following criteria: 

  1. Be a Texas resident 
  2. Have an approved condition 
  3. Receive a cannabis prescription through a doctor registered with the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) 

There are over 200 approved conditions for medical cannabis prescriptions in Texas, including: 

  • Peripheral neuropathy 
  • Cancer 
  • PTSD 
  • Spasticity 
  • Autism 
  • Epilepsy 
  • Parkinson’s 
  • Huntington’s 
  • MS 
  • ALS 
  • Alzheimer’s and other dementias 
  • And over 100 more conditions

Now you’re ready to meet with a registered physician. Simply fill out the Get a Prescription form and partnering virtual clinic will reach out to you. Not sure if you have a qualifying condition? No problem, just fill out the form and a registered physician will confirm your eligibility. 

Be sure to bring any questions you have to your appointment. Afterward, your doctor will electronically add your cannabis prescription to the Compassionate Use Registry.
