What You Need to Know

    Eligibility / Patient

    Patients must be at least 18 years old, a Texas resident, and be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition to qualify for a medical marijuana card.

  • info-icons-1-icon-2.svg


    In other states, patients who need help accessing medication assign caregivers who apply for a medical card. These caregivers also have legal protection to purchase, transport, and possess marijuana for their patients.

    In Texas, however, caregivers are entered into the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) by their certifying physician and do not need to apply separately to a program. The state does not issue caregiver cards. Caregivers must only present their valid Texas-issued ID to be verified at the dispensary.

  • info-icons-1-icon-3.svg

    Can Minors Qualify?

    Yes. People under 18 with a qualifying condition can get a medical marijuana card in Texas. However, a minor can only apply through a parent or legal guardian under the compassionate use program.

Legal Topics

The Texas Compassionate Use Act was enacted in 2015. This Act required the Texas Department of Public Safety to establish a secure registry of physicians who treated epilepsy. This was done to facilitate prescribing low-THC cannabis to patients with epilepsy.

In 2019, the list of qualifying conditions for cannabis treatment expanded to include epilepsy, terminal cancer, MS, ALS, seizure disorders, and incurable neurological disorders. PTSD was added in 2021.

Other important Texas cannabis laws include:

  • Possession of up to two ounces is a misdemeanor that carries up to 180 days in prison, a $2,000 fine, and a driver’s license suspension (some municipalities may have more lenient penalties).
  • Selling or delivering seven grams of marijuana or less is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $4,000.
  • Hashish and concentrates are not considered marijuana under Texas law. However, it’s still illegal to possess either.
  • Smoking medical marijuana is prohibited in Texas. One is only allowed to consume marijuana orally through products such as oils.

Caregiver Requirements:

  • At least 18 years of age.
  • Patients must be permanent Texas residents.
  • Caregivers must show proof of ID and the patient’s last name, date of birth, and the last five digits of their social security number when purchasing.
  • Legal guardians must show proof of identification to the dispensing organization.

Caregiver Registration (Leafwell):

  • Patients must provide the full name of their caregiver plus the last five digits of the caregiver’s social security number.

Texas doesn’t have medical marijuana reciprocity with any state. Medical cards obtained in other states cannot be used in Texas. That said, several other states and territories have forms of cannabis reciprocity, including:

*Visitors must complete a visiting patient application with the state program.

States that have legalized recreational cannabis for adults 21 and older but do not accept out-of-state cards include:

How do I apply for the state program in Texas?

After you’ve spoken to a Leafwell physician and been approved for the Texas Low THC program, you don’t need to do anything.

The next steps are for your physician — they will enter your details in their physician profile within the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas, known as CURT.

Once your details have been entered, you can purchase medicine from a licensed dispensary. You’ll need to present your valid state ID to the dispensary so they can access CURT and confirm that you’re a valid patient in the state.
