Medical Marijuana Doctors in Texas
Unfortunately, not all doctors are qualified to recommend medical marijuana for all of the qualifying conditions, nor are all of the qualified doctors willing to write marijuana recommendations. Therefore, it can be challenging to find a doctor that will help you out.
But don't worry, all Texas Marijuana Card doctors are certified to recommend medical cannabis, and believe it can be a safe and effective treatment for many patients.
What Conditions Qualify for a Medical Marijuana Card in Texas?
Under Texas’ Compassionate Use Program (CUP), the following conditions qualify patients to receive a Texas Marijuana Card:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
An incurable neurodegenerative disease
Additionally, starting in September 2021, Texans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder will also be eligible to receive medical marijuana, as will participants enrolled in research programs studying the effects of medical marijuana on specific conditions not recognized by the CUP.
Get Approved for Medical Marijuana
If you are living with one of the above qualifying conditions, you are eligible to treat it with medical marijuana in Texas.
The easiest way to get a Texas Marijuana Card is to schedule a telemedicine appointment with one of our medical marijuana doctors.
Our quick and easy telemed platform allows you to get approved by one of our doctors from the convenience and safety of your own home, using a smartphone, computer, or tablet.
What Can I Expect at the Appointment?
During your evaluation, you will discuss your medical conditions and treatment history with your marijuana doctor.
For the quickest and easiest experience, we suggest that you submit copies of your medical records to the doctor prior to your visit. This will help the doctor quickly and accurately verify your eligibility to use medical marijuana, and also help them to tailor a treatment plan to your specific needs.
Not sure which documents you need or how to get them? Call one of our friendly support staff at (833) 781-5630 for guidance through the process.
Once the doctor confirms your qualifying condition and discusses a treatment plan with you, you'll be registered with CURT. And once you’re registered, you’ll be able to purchase medical marijuana at any licensed dispensary in Texas! You’ll just need to provide the dispensary with your name, date of birth, and the last five digits of your Social Security Number.
And don't worry if your doctor is unable to confirm your condition for some reason. We will guide you through the process of verifying your medical information, and we will refund your appointment cost if you are ultimately not approved. You have nothing to lose, and a newfound world of relief to gain!
