the world of cannabis is rapidly changing.

A few years ago, cannabis was mostly known in its recreational version and was associated with a dark and unsafe image that comes with a “street drug”.

Difficult reality for cannabis in Texas While it is true that medical cannabis in Texas has been a reality since 2015, access continues to be restricted. For 2015, the state admitted the Compassionate Use Program which allows patients to consume products that have a low THC content between 0.3% and 0.5% according to the medical recommendation, on the contrary, self-cultivation is not authorized, and the same goes for the smokable cannabis flower. Given this, Texas has only three companies approved for medical cannabis, making access to legal cannabis difficult for many patients.
