SB 339 initially permitted only patients who have intractable epilepsy to use low-THC cannabis. Today, more patients are allowed to access low-THC cannabis products for the treatment of their conditions. The conditions covered under the Texas Compassionate Use Program established by SB 339 are listed under Section 169.003 of the Texas Occupations Code. Low-THC cannabis products are required to contain no more than 1% THC by weight. Note that SB 339 bans the smoking of low-THC cannabis by patients or other persons unapproved to use medical cannabis. Low-THC products may be used as topicals, tinctures, and edibles.
Before a patient may access low-THC cannabis from an approved dispensing organization, such an individual must get a low-THC cannabis certification from a physician licensed in the state. The certification must affirm that a determination has been made attesting the individual named on the certification suffers from an approved medical condition and that the person will benefit from the therapeutic use of cannabis. Upon obtaining a low-THC cannabis certification, the approving physician will enroll the patient in the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas and issue a medical cannabis prescription. Only upon enrollment in the CURT and getting a medical cannabis prescription can a patient visit a dispensary or order low-THC cannabis online. Note that the consumption of low-THC cannabis on the premises of a dispensary or federal lands and properties is illegal.

The Texas DPS does not issue medical marijuana identification cards to enrollees under the compassionate use program.
