How Can Medical Cannabis Help?
Low-THC Cannabis available under the Texas Compassionate Use Program (more commonly referred to as “medical marijuana”) may be prescribed (as referenced in Sec. 169.0011 of the Texas Occupations Code) for conditions such as autism, epilepsy, PTSD and cancer. When you meet with one of our experienced medical cannabis doctors registered with the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (“CURT”), we will perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine if you qualify for a medical marijuana prescription
We understand the impact the debilitating symptoms of certain qualifying conditions can have on your daily life, which is why we strive to improve your quality of life through safe access to medical marijuana. Although more research needs to be done to determine the safety and efficacy of medical marijuana, some strains and products can help you manage symptoms so you can get back to the activities you enjoy.

TXMMD is not licensed by the Texas Department of Public Safety as a Dispensing Organization (as defined under Sec. 487.001 of the Texas Health & Safety Code) to perform the regulated functions of cultivating, processing, or dispensing low-THC cannabis under the Texas Compassionate Use Act. TXMMD provides appointments with physicians registered in the Texas Compassionate Use Registry so patients can be evaluated to determine if they qualify for low-THC cannabis (also referred to as “medical marijuana”) under the Texas Compassionate Use Program, and if so, the prescription will be entered by the physician in the Texas Compassionate Use Registry. Patients must contact a licensed dispensing organization to receive a prescription of low-THC cannabis as authorized under the Texas Compassionate Use Program. None of the products sold by TXMMD are “low-THC cannabis” products under the Texas Compassionate Use Program, but rather are consumable hemp products authorized under the Texas hemp laws. TXMMD is licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services to manufacture consumable hemp products (License #705) and is registered to sell consumable hemp products (License #4267).
Any health claim statements relating to products sold by TXMMD have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Products sold by TXMMD are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
Medical cannabis (and cannabis oils)
Many cannabis-based products are available to buy online, but their quality and content is not known. They may be illegal in the UK and potentially dangerous.
Some products that might claim to be medical cannabis, such as CBD oil or hemp oil, are available to buy legally as food supplements from health stores. But there’s no guarantee these are of good quality or provide any health benefits.
Specific cannabis-based products are available on prescription as medicinal cannabis. These are only likely to benefit a very small number of patients.
Can I get a prescription for medical cannabis?
Very few people in England are likely to get a prescription for medical cannabis.
Currently, it is only likely to be prescribed for the following conditions:
- children and adults with rare, severe forms of epilepsy
- adults with vomiting or nausea caused by chemotherapy
- people with muscle stiffness and spasms caused by multiple sclerosis (MS)
It would only be considered when other treatments were not suitable or had not helped.
Epidyolex for children and adults with epilepsy
Epidyolex is a highly purified liquid containing CBD (cannabidiol).
CBD is a chemical substance found in cannabis that has medical benefits.
It will not get you high, because it does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the chemical in cannabis that makes you high.
Epidyolex can be prescribed by a specialist for patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome (both rare forms of epilepsy).
Nabilone for chemotherapy patients
Many people having chemotherapy will have periods where they feel sick or vomit.
Nabilone can be prescribed to adults by a specialist to help relieve these symptoms, but only when other treatments have not helped or are not suitable.
Nabilone is a medicine, taken as a capsule, that has been developed to act in a similar way to THC (the chemical in cannabis that makes you high). You may have heard it described as a “manmade form of cannabis”.
Nabiximols (Sativex) for multiple sclerosis (MS)
Nabiximols (Sativex) is a cannabis-based medicine that is sprayed into the mouth.
It is licensed in the UK for adults with MS-related muscle spasticity that has not got better with other treatments.
There is some evidence medical cannabis can help certain types of pain, though this evidence is not yet strong enough to recommend it for pain relief.
In some cases, however, it may be prescribed for pain as part of a clinical trial.
What about products available to buy?
Some cannabis-based products are available to buy over the internet without a prescription.
It’s likely most of these products – even those called CBD oils – will be illegal to possess or supply. There’s a good chance they will contain THC, and may not be safe to use.
Health stores sell certain types of pure CBD. However, there’s no guarantee these products will be of good quality.
They tend to only contain very small amounts of CBD, so it’s not clear what effect they would have.
Is medical cannabis safe?
The risks of using cannabis products containing THC (the chemical that gets you high) are not currently clear. That’s why clinical trials are needed before they can be used. “Pure” products that only contain CBD, such as Epidyolex, do not carry these unknown risks linked with THC.
But in reality, most products will contain a certain amount of THC.
The main risks of THC cannabis products are:
- psychosis – there is evidence that regular cannabis use increases your risk of developing a psychotic illness such as schizophrenia
- dependency on the medicine – although scientists believe this risk is probably small when its use is controlled and monitored by a specialist doctor
Generally, the more THC the product contains, the greater these risks are.
Cannabis bought illegally off the street, where the quality, ingredients and strength are not known, is the most dangerous form to use.
What are the side effects?
Depending on the type of medical cannabis you take, it’s possible to develop side effects such as:
- decreased appetite
- feeling sick
- a behavioural or mood change
- feeling very tired
- feeling high
- suicidal thoughts
If you experience any side effects from medical cannabis, report these to your medical team. You can also report them through the Yellow Card Scheme.
CBD and THC can affect how other medicines work. Always discuss possible interactions with a specialist.
CBD can also affect how your liver works, so doctors would need to monitor you regularly.
How do I get a prescription?
You cannot get cannabis-based medicine from a GP – it can only be prescribed by a specialist hospital doctor.
And it is only likely to be prescribed for a small number of patients.
A hospital specialist might consider prescribing medical cannabis:
- for epilepsy – if you (or your child) have one of the rare forms of epilepsy that might be helped by medical cannabis
- for MS – if you have spasticity from MS and other treatments for this are not helping
- for chemotherapy – if you are vomiting or feeling sick from chemotherapy and other anti-sickness treatments are not helping
The specialist will discuss with you all the other treatment options first, before considering a cannabis-based product.
A prescription for medical cannabis would only be given when it was believed to be in your best interests, and when other treatments had not worked or were not suitable.
It’s expected this would only apply to a very small number of people in England.
If the above does not apply to you, do not ask a GP for a referral for medical cannabis.
Will the laws on cannabis be relaxed?
The government has no intention of legalising the use of cannabis for recreational (non-medical) use.
Possessing cannabis is illegal, whatever you’re using it for. That includes medical use cannabis products, unless these have been prescribed for you.
Doctors Who Prescribe CBD Oil Near Me
Medical cannabis (medical marijuana) has emerged as an important and complex ‘new’ therapeutic option for patients with a variety of medical conditions. As a medical cannabis specialist, my services include MMJ evaluations and medical marijuana physician certifications, for patients in Colorado. Likewise, my practice offers medical cannabis and CBD consultations available to anyone, not just residents of Colorado.
For some people, it can feel difficult to find a trusted source of accurate information on medical marijuana.
Since 2011, I have been partnering with my clients, to determine how medical marijuana can be used as a therapeutic option. We work together using an integrative and personalized approach to evaluate the best treatment options.
During consultations, there is an emphasis on education, science, and assessing risk versus benefit using up to date information. We look at how best to use cannabinoids (such as THC, CBD, CBN, CBG….), including different types and methods of use, cannabinoid treatment properties, potential medical interactions, appropriate and safe use, alternative treatment options and more.
Medical Cannabis is a very unique therapy, with amazing potential. The medical marijuana industry is rapidly expanding, as we learn more about this ancient plant based medicine. I have been honored and awed by the opportunity to learn alongside my patients.
For people wishing to explore the ways CBD can be incorporated into treatment of medical conditions, CBD consultations offer a focused assessment on the use of CBD (cannabidiol) as a treatment option.
These consultations are available to people living both inside and outside of Colorado. This is an excellent option if you are living in a place that has not legalized the use of medical cannabis, but allows the use of CBD.
For some people, the use of cannabis may not be possible for other reasons, such as job restrictions. Other people simply prefer to explore the use of CBD if they are not interested in the full scope of cannabinoids found in cannabis (such as THC).
Consultations offer complete, in-depth assessment of your unique needs and the ways CBD can be used as part of a treatment plan to help with your specific concerns. After the visit, you will feel educated and informed about CBD and how it is unique from cannabis.
Consultations are offered both in-person and remotely via telemedicine. For those interested in telemedicine services, visits can be done by phone, or online video conferencing.
