To become a medical marijuana patient in Texas, you need to register with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
There are 3 steps to become a medical marijuana patient in Texas. We’ve broken down the steps for you:
Step 1: Qualifying Conditions in Texas
Currently, in Texas, intractable epilepsy is the only qualifying condition. This condition qualifies for medical use of low-THC oils.
Step 2: Find a Physician
In Texas, only a registered physician may prescribe low-THC cannabis treatment. Patients are required to be diagnosed by and received prescriptions from two registered physicians.
Texas physicians must specialize in the field of examining, diagnosing and treating epilepsy, and be registered with the Compassionate Use Program (CUP) before prescribing medical cannabis.
Step 3: Get Patient ID:
Once you have seen your physicians, they will register your information, diagnosis and treatment plant with the Depart of Public Safety.
Patient information is stored in the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas, a secure online database accessible to registered physicians, dispensing organizations and law enforcement.
