Texas does not currently have an official MMJ Caregiver program. However, minors can qualify for medical cannabis, and a parent or guardian must be listed on their initial application.
Minors suffering from terminal or chronic conditions like cancer, epilepsy or any other long-term neurological condition that affects quality of life, and some kinds of autism may qualify a minor for an MMJ card.
About Medical Marijuana in Texas
Texas’ medical marijuana program has an unusual setup. Rather than recommending medical cannabis, Texas doctors prescribe it. But the types of cannabis products available are very limited. No smokable or vaporized forms are allowed.
The rules simply prohibit smoking or vaping, but due to the limited nature of the program, you won’t typically find topicals, transdermal patches, suppositories, or other forms that are found in states with more advance programs even though they’re technically allowed.
The state’s three licensed dispensaries typically have one or two chocolates, a couple selections of infused drinks, gummies with varying levels of THC and CBD, oils and tinctures.
Contrary to popular belief, THC-only cannabis with no CBD is available in Texas. Texas’s law limits the amount of THC in cannabis products by weight rather than in comparison to the CBD content. These THC-only products are designated by their 0:1 ratio.
At dispensaries, you’ll commonly find ratios of:
- 0:1, consisting of THC with no CBD, and typically containing 10 to 20 mg per dose,
- 1:1, which contain the same amount of CBD and THC and is mildly psychoactive,
- 2:1, which contain twice as much CBD as THC and is considered very mildly psychoactive,
- 20:1, which contain mostly CBD and are considered non-psychoactive
- And occasional ratios in between.
