Are you or a loved one suffering from chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, dementia, PTSD, inflammation or any other chronic disease? You can get your medical marijuana prescription if you meet the qualifying conditions.

The compounds of CBD and THC that are found in cannabis, are similar to the cannabinoids found in our bodies. This system is responsible for multiple functions such as reducing inflammation, reducing stress and pain, and relaxing tense muscles.

As of 2022, over 2 million Texans now qualify for medical cannabis as a treatment option under certain conditions. If you or a loved one is suffering from chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, dementia, PTSD, inflammation, cancer or autism, or any qualifying condition may be eligible to get yours.
