What are the advantages of having a medical card for marijuana in Texas?

The Department of Public Safety does not currently issue medical cards. After your evaluation, if you qualify, our office will provide you with a signed approval letter from your physician to present to any member of law enforcement. This approval letter gives you lawful protection while using your medicine.

Can I travel with my prescribed medical marijuana product?

Yes and no. TSA has publicly confirmed that they are not searching for your cannabis or medication. However, it is always best to check with your airline and associated state of travel for respective laws before traveling.

General Cannabis Information

What is the difference between medical marijuana and Delta-8 THC?

The difference between medical marijuana and Delta-8 THC is the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) they both contain. THC is the psychoactive substance in cannabis plants. Medical marijuana products are derived from the marijuana plant, which contains 0.3% or more THC, and which you need a prescription to purchase. Delta-8 is typically sourced from hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD), which contains less than 0.3% THC, and can be bought without a prescription. Marijuana and hemp are both different species of the Cannabis sativa plant.

At Texas 420 Doctors, we offer a range of hemp-derived Delta-8 and CBD products that you may purchase without a prescription.

What is the difference between medical marijuana and CBD?

Medical marijuana and CBD are both derivatives of the cannabis plant. Medical marijuana products contain a higher amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) than CBD products, which contain little to no THC. THC is the psychoactive substance found in cannabis that creates a “high.” You need a doctor’s prescription to buy medical marijuana, while hemp-derived CBD products can typically be bought over the counter. We offer a range of non-prescription CBD products that you can incorporate into your daily routine.

When you book an online appointment with us for your medical marijuana license, your consulting physician will counsel you on the type of medical cannabis products best suited for your circumstances. The yearly price of our service also includes ongoing support and follow-ups with your physician for a whole year.
