If you are approved, your physician will write you a prescription. Texas is unique because it doesn’t administer medical marijuana cards but rather requires physicians to write a prescription for patients and submit that to the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) system.
Getting your prescription with NuggMD is easy. After it’s entered into the CURT system, fill your prescription at one of the state’s legal dispensaries. Your physician will decide when to see you for your required follow-up (this often occurs roughly 3 months after your initial evaluation). This follow-up is included in the cost of your evaluation.

Most Common Conditions
Texas does not currently have any legislation on caregiver requirements or restrictions. Texas also has no age restrictions on who can be administered a medical cannabis prescription. Patients 18 years old or under are eligible but may require permission from a legal guardian.
A legal guardian may pick up the prescription from a dispensing organization. To qualify as a legal guardian of a Texas medical cannabis patient, you must be a Texas resident and provide the administering physician with the following information.
Follow the instructions once you start the NuggMD process to fill out your application. Make sure you enter all of your information accurately to avoid possible delays in your processing. When you’re approved, your NuggMD medical marijuana doctor will enter your prescription into the state’s CURT system.
Once your doctor completes this process, you’ll be able to fill your prescription at one of the state’s dispensing organizations. There is no fee associated with submitting your prescription to the CURT system.
Your physician will decide when you’ll need to have your second appointment to renew your medical marijuana prescription in Texas. Most doctors choose to have a follow up evaluation in about three months. This follow up is included in the cost of your initial evaluation with NuggMD.
Thankfully, the process for how to renew your Texas medical cannabis card isn’t complicated. And NuggMD makes the process even easier!

Texas residents desiring to be prescribed medical cannabis must be diagnosed with one of the state’s listed qualifying medical conditions. There is no age limit to those eligible. Patients under 18 years old may require legal guardian permission. A state-licensed physician must evaluate patients and then submit the prescription to the CURT system.
Out-of-state medical cannabis card holders or residents are not eligible to purchase at Texas dispensing sites.
Texas requires that licensed physicians only prescribe medical cannabis to those with a qualifying condition. Those who do not have any of these conditions are not eligible for the Compassionate Use Program.
The state continues to update regulations regarding its medical marijuana program. They receive feedback and opinions about the current state of their cannabis legislation through their Compassionate Use Program Working Group.
The state most recently removed the term ‘terminal’ from its list of qualifying cancer conditions to include any type of cancer and added PTSD.
For now, having a prescription from a licensed medical doctor is the only way to purchase and consume cannabis in the state of Texas.
It remains illegal to possess or consume cannabis recreationally. The possession of up to 2 ounces of cannabis is punishable by up to 180 days in jail and $2,000 in fines.
It only costs $149 to get a Texas MMJ evaluation with NuggMD. Patients who don’t qualify for the program will get their evaluation for free!
No. Health insurance does not cover any cost associated with obtaining your medical cannabis prescription because it remains federally illegal. If legislation progresses, this may change in the future.
The CURT system is available 24 hours to physicians, so as soon as your prescription in put into the system, you’re eligible to pick it up at a dispensing center.
With NuggMD, you are ONLY charged for your evaluation if you are approved. We believe everyone deserves access to a qualified medical cannabis doctor, and the cost of an evaluation shouldn’t be a barrier.

Yes. As long as the doctor is a registered Texas physician and registered with the CURT system they are able to provide your cannabis prescription. Be aware that seeing a new doctor means getting a new full evaluation. A new physician can’t provide a simple “follow up.” Luckily, this initial evaluation isn’t complicated with NuggMD. All you need is your medical records pertaining to your condition and some free time to conduct your evaluation.
This depends on the state to which you’re traveling. Each state has different rules regarding reciprocity, and some don’t allow it at all. Check with your destination state to learn more.
Yes, but the state does require that you are a permanent resistant of Texas in order to be prescribed medical marijuana. So you’ll at least need proof of residency. For a complete list of documents needed for a Texas medical marijuana prescription see the Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 12.
