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:
Cannabis oil that is 0.5% THC or lower is available for patients registered in the medical mairjuana program in Texas. To renew your access to medical cannabis in Texas, you can submit your request up to six months before your recommendation expires.
If a patient does not renew their medical marijuana recommendation and it remains expired for a period of six months or longer, they will not be allowed to apply for renewal. The patient(s) will need to complete a new application once more.
Pre-Visit Requirements: Before You Schedule Your Texas Telemedicine Visit With Us
The Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) has regulations that patients must follow to become registered in the medical cannabis program. There are separate laws for patients over the age of 18 years (adults) and minors who require a designated caregiver.

Not every patient that applies for a Texas medical cannabis is approved. The Texas Administrative Code RULE §12.15 explains the reasons why a patient application may be denied. However, if your application is not accepted, there is an appeal process.

About Compassionate Telemedicine
Dr. Kendrick created Compassionate Telemedicine to combine her knowledge of neuroscience, her training in internal medicine, and her desire to combine holistic and traditional western approaches to treating her patients. Dr. Kendrick dedicated 15 years to formal education. She graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University with departmental honors and distinction in Biopsychology.
After graduation, Dr. Kendrick was accepted into the PhD program in Neuroscience at the University of California, Los Angeles, one of the leading academic institutions in the field, where she studied neuroanatomy, electrophysiology, biostatistics, and biomedical laboratory techniques. She returned to New York to earn her certificate in the post-baccalaureate premedical program at Columbia University. Dr. Kendrick was the only selected candidate from this program to be accepted into Brown Medical School, in a class of only 30 fellow students.
Dr. Allison Kendrick is a member in good standing in the following healthcare regulatory and other professional associations.
After graduating medical school, she returned to Texas to join the residency program at Baylor College of Medicine in the Houston Texas Medical Center. As she gained experience as a practicing physician, she quickly became concerned with the time restrictions placed on her visits with her patients. Dr. Kendrick felt she wanted a higher level of medical care for her patients. And the freedom to recommend effective alternative medicine and therapeutics.
