To qualify for medical cannabis, patients who are permanent residents of Texas and diagnosed with qualifying conditions must obtain a prescription from a qualified physician who determines the risk of low-THC cannabis is reasonable in light of the potential benefit for the patient.
Qualified physicians must be board-certified in a medical specialty relevant to the approved medical conditions by a specialty board approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties or the Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists.
Physicians will register their patient’s diagnosis and treatment plan with the state’s Compassionate Use Registry database. Once registered, patients and their legal guardians will be exempt from certain state laws prohibiting the possession of cannabis in Texas.
There is no age limit to qualify as a medical cannabis patient in Texas. However, patients under the age of 18 may require permission from a legal guardian.
