How Can I Get a Texas Medical Card? Texas doesn't actually have a medical marijuana card. All you need is a qualified physician to give you the recommendation. There are several qualifying health conditions that can make a patient eligible to receive medical marijuana in Texas. Some of the most common symptoms or qualifying health diagnoses include: *Seizure disorder *Diabetic Neuropathy *Terminal Cancer *Autism and other spectrum disorders *ALS *Dementia *MS *CTE - chronic disorder from multiple head injuries *Parkinson’s Disease Cannabis oil that is .05% THC or lower is available for patients registered in the medical marijuana program in Texas (known as the CURT system). In place of a card, patients are given a prescriptions for their cannabis on the CURT system with the Department of Public Safety. Physicians and their patients consult a few times a year to evaluate how the medication is working, and new prescriptions are entered after each visit. Once the patient is established on an effective dose, they typically only renew their prescription once or twice a year.
