Qualifying for Medical Cannabis

Under the Texas Compassionate Use Act, certain patients with intractable epilepsy may legally obtain nonsmokable forms of low-THC cannabis oil from state-licensed dispensaries.

To qualify for medical cannabis, patients who are permanent residents of Texas and diagnosed with intractable epilepsy 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 specialize in the field of examining, diagnosing and treating epilepsy.

Physicians will obtain a concurring determination from a second qualified physician before prescribing medical cannabis, and 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I measure out my medication?

The bottle and box will state the concentration of CBD per mL. Using the 1 mL syringe provided with the product, you can determine how much to measure out for your dose. For instance, to get 50 mg of CBD from a 100 mg CBD /mL tincture, measure out 0.5 mL. For 10 mg, measure out 0.1 mL.

Why use this medication rather than the hemp based CBD products at over the counter stores?

Our medication is of the highest quality possible, starting from cultivation and ending in a child- resistant and tamper evident packaged bottle. The final product is quality tested for pesticides, heavy metals, microbial activity, chemicals and the potency of CBD and THC in the product. You can be assured the medicine is consistent and of high purity. Everything is traced and easily tracked to the plant it came from. Hemp based products are unregulated, rarely lot traceable and could be contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides or chemicals.

Are there any artificial dyes/sugars in this product as my neurologist has us on a strict diet?

In our unflavored product, there are no additives or dyes, it is strictly cannabis extract and MCT USP grade oil. The peppermint product is flavored with an all-natural peppermint oil. The cherry product is flavored with an all-natural almond oil containing a very small amount of artificial cherry flavoring. There are no dyes or allergens in our products.

Where can I pick up my prescription?

Your prescription can be picked up at our dispensary located at 12701 Lowden Lane, Bldg. 501, Manchaca, TX 78652. If you do not live in the Austin area or are unable to pick-up your prescription, please contact our dispensary at (512) 614-0343 for state-wide delivery options.

What’s the binding agent in this oil?

There are two types of binding agent: We use pharmaceutical-grade Coconut MCT Oil or Safflower Oil for those with an aversion to MCT oil.

If I have further dosing questions, do I contact the dispensary or my neurologist who prescribed me this medicine?
