Prescribed medical marijuana patients in Houston can now get access to their medication with the opening of Texas Original in The Heights.
According to its website, Texas Original is the sole legal medical cannabis producer headquartered in Texas. It is also the largest medical marijuana provider in the state. The company works with physicians, patients, and staffs a medical advisory board in order to provide clinical cannabis to those with qualifying medical conditions.
This past Tuesday, the company opened a 1,776 square-foot facility at 1714 Houston Avenue in The Heights.
“This is a monumental step forward for medical cannabis access in Houston and across the state of Texas,” said Texas Original CEO, Morris Denton.
“Patients in one of the most populated cities in the country can now locally pick up their life-changing medication five days a week. Reliable and convenient access to medicine is what all patients deserve—we’re proud to deliver on that promise for Houstonians.””
Open five days a week, Texas Original produces, distributes, and delivers a variety of medical cannabis products, including gummies, lozenges, and tinctures. It should be noted that Texas law prohibits clinical cannabis products that require igniting.
As outlined on its website, only those with a physician-prescribed medical marijuana license registered in the Compassionate Use Program will have access to their clinical products. Presently, there are over 145 qualifying conditions under the aforementioned program, that which include: ALS, Alzheimer’s Disease, cancer, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, and Parkinson’s Disease, among others.
Texas Original is open from 9 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday and from 9 am to 4 pm on Saturdays.
