Meet With a Medical Marijuana Doctor in Texas

Well, this is awkward.

It looks like we are not currently helping patients in Texas to get their medical marijuana cards. However, you can easily join our waitlist to be notified when we're booking appointments in your state.

You can also take advantage of our Personalized Consults as a Texas resident to better understand how cannabis and CBD may be helpful to you.


How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in TX


When we’re booking appointments in Texas, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in TX through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Provide basic medical history and book your appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. You will need medical records and the doctor(s) can approve any qualifying condition.


Consult with a doctor for 15 mins to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. After the appointment is complete, the doctor will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana and approve you. Once you have this you can then use that to apply to the state.


Once you are approved, you’ll register with the state and submit an application. The state will process your application and notify you of your approval and mail your card. Once you have your card in hand, you can begin purchasing from dispensaries.

In Texas, patients will need to re-certify their license annually by seeing a licensed physician again. Veriheal will get in touch with you when your certification is approaching its expiration to help you setup a renewal consultation.

The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Texas

Cannabis is illegal for medical and recreational purposes in Texas, the state of the United States, although low-THC CBD oil has been permitted for epilepsy therapy since 2015. Although SB 399, the Texas Compassionate Use Act, was signed by Governor Abbot in June 2015, application was slow and the law is one of the country’s most restrictive. This law enables access to low-THC cannabis for some patients. Cannabis products are regarded low-THC if they contain at least 10 percent cannabidiol, but tetrahydrocannabinol does not exceed 0.5 percent. Texas state endorsed the medical use of such products for intractable epilepsy diagnosed patients. The law prohibits dried flower smoking and home cultivation or cannabis.

In 2019, you must: (1) be a permanent Texas resident, (2) diagnosed with intractable epilepsy, (3) have prescriptions from two distinct physicians to legally qualify for medical cannabis oil in Texas.

Contact with the patient is not essential for the secondary physician. The primary doctor may discuss the situation of the patient for authorization with a secondary doctor. There’s no limit on age. Patients are not required to register or pay a fee under the law. In the Compassionate Use Registry, however, patient data will be maintained. Patients must meet monthly with the neurologist who approved their therapy to obtain continuing access to cannabis oil.

The Compassionate Use Act supplied for three dispensaries to be licensed. These are:

As of the beginning of 2019, there are open dispensaries for Knox and Compassionate Cultivation and cannabis CBD oils are accessible through national distribution. Many patients were prescribed cannabis oil even under these narrow conditions and had it delivered to their homes. This is likely to be done by many more in the future. Patients can check the website of the State Department of Public Safety for an accredited doctor in Texas.

Becoming a Caregiver in Texas

Patients who need help from a caregiver or legal guardian to obtain or use medicinal cannabis may have their prescriptions filled and supplied. Currently, on behalf of a patient or their legal guardian, only social workers and nurses are permitted to produce marijuana products.

Possession Limits

Possession boundaries are set by doctors attending.

The legislation specifically prohibits smoking to ingest low-THC cannabis; therefore, possession of marijuana or marijuana with THC content above 0.5% is forbidden.


The Texas Compassionate Use Act prohibits the cultivation of marijuana for any purpose. Only controlled agencies are permitted to grow medical marijuana.

Places to Visit in Texas After Enjoying Your Medicine

There’s plenty to see and do, whether you’re interested in the typical Texan experience or the state’s more contemporary side. Texas offers numerous opportunities for fun and adventure. The state provides a wealth of distinctive attractions and stuff to do, geographically and culturally diverse. Vacation opportunities in Texas are vast, ranging from towns to coastal beaches, hills, and desert.


Texas capital, Austin is a busy town known for its live music scene, numerous lovely lakes and parks, and museums of world class. In the core of the town, Lady Bird Lake offers possibilities for swimming, kayaking, cycling, and jogging. Culinary choices vary from beat-up food trucks that sell delicious barbecue to upscale farm-to-table restaurants, and the nightlife of the city has something for nearly everyone. Live music performances are held throughout the town every night, but a journey to the town during one of its two main music festivals is particularly worthwhile: South by Southwest (SXSW) and the Austin City Limits Festival.


Fredericksburg also has a proud German legacy and a vibrant art and music scene, best known for its outstanding wineries. There are plenty of possibilities for wine tours, and there is an outstanding range of restaurants complementing the many wineries in the area. In the city square, you can see a beautiful replica of a German church from the 19th century; visitors interested in the history of the city would also be well advised to visit the Pioneer Museum. The town center is very pedestrian and biking friendly, and thanks to its place in the lovely Texas Hill Country, the town is also surrounded by many lovely walking and cycling trails.

New Braunfels

New Braunfels was established in 1845 by German settlers because of its closeness to both the rivers Comal and Guadalupe. Fishing, swimming, kayaking and other water sports on the waterways are almost infinite possibilities, but tourists can also go to the 70-acre Schlitterbahn Waterpark for a family-friendly day of water fun. Adventure enthusiasts should also have time to visit the Natural Bridge Caverns ‘ calcareous caves, while anyone interested in history can visit the Gruene Historic District to marvel at the initial German structures dating back to the 1800s.
