As we’re writing this article in the spring of 2019, medical marijuana is not yet legal in the state of Texas. However, many lawmakers are working to change policy in order to make it more widely available to treat ailing citizens in the state.
Even though 33 states and the District of Columbia have now legalized medical marijuana, in Texas the Compassionate Use Act of 2015 only allows patients who suffer from epilepsy to legally consume marijuana to help control their symptoms.
State Sen. José Menéndez, D-San Antonio, wants to change the availability of medical marijuana in Texas!
He says, “I think that the current Compassionate Use Act in Texas is worthless,” Menéndez said. “We say to cancer patients, ‘I’m sorry, you’re not worthy of it. HIV patients, sorry. Glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, Alzheimer’s, hepatitis C, you name it, you’re just not worthy.”
As Menendez and other Texans seek to legalize medical marijuana and expand its use in the state, it is currently legal to use CBD products in San Antonio and the entire state of Texas!

THC is the cannabinoid that Medical marijuana contains high levels of CBD and also some THC, which is the chemical compound that creates a high feeling. In contrast, CBD products that are made from hemp plants don’t contain any THC and this is why they’re legal in places where medical marijuana isn’t.
