Wondering Why You Should Get Your Medical Prescription?

Having your medical marijuana prescription in Texas can change everything.
Dispensary Access

Without your medical prescription, you won't be able to visit dispensaries or purchase medical cannabis products.

Legal Protection

Possessing or using cannabis without a valid medical prescription can still land you in legal trouble. A medical marijuana prescription grants you protection from prosecution.

Tailored Treatment Options

With a medical marijuana prescription, patients gain access to a wide range of medical cannabis products specifically tailored to address various health concerns.

Holistic Healthcare

Medical marijuana can offer a more holistic approach, minimizing the reliance on pharmaceutical drugs and other medications that may lead to dependency or adverse reactions.

Patient Support

Your doctor can help you understand dosage recommendations, potential side effects, and any interactions with other medications. Also, they are there to ensure you have a safe and effective experience with medical marijuana.


Purchasing from a dispensary can often be more cost-effective compared to purchasing from the illicit market. Additionally, when you purchase from a dispensary you know that the products are safe and accurately labeled.

After they’ve uploaded your prescription, it will be available for dispensaries so that they can dispense your medication.  

Your information and medical marijuana status is stored on the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT). The Texas medical cannabis program, or Texas medical marijuana program, is CURT. This is how dispensaries will be able to look you up so that you can purchase Texas weed products.

The renewal procedure mirrors your initial registration process. You need to consult a doctor again and obtain another recommendation. Upon approval, your doctor will upload the prescription to CURT. Once this data is accessible to dispensaries, you can buy your prescribed medication from them.

  • Smokeable cannabis is prohibited and not sold at dispensaries in Texas
  • Cannabis products for purchase include tinctures, lozenges, and gummies.
  • A patient’s participation in the program does not disqualify an individual from obtaining or maintaining a License to Carry. However, an individual’s underlying condition that they received a medical marijuana prescription for may, under certain circumstances, be disqualifying.

Patients who need a legal guardian or caregiver to use medicinal cannabis can also have their medical marijuana prescriptions picked up. There is no formal application for caregivers in Texas.

Once the caregiver/legal guardian is going to pick up the prescription for medical marijuana, they will need to provide:

  • Drivers License/ID
  • Patient’s Last Name
  • Patients DOB
  • Last 5 digits of the patient’s social security number
