Per state regulations under the Compassionate Use Act, North Richland Hills residents who have qualifying debilitating conditions must register with the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) and get medical cannabis prescriptions to use medical cannabis legally. Texas does not have an age requirement for participants under the CUP. However, parental or legal guardian consent may be required before a minor is enrolled in the CURT.
Under the CUP, only medical cannabis products with 1% THC or less are legal; hence, a 30-gram low-THC cannabis product will contain no more than 30 milligrams of THC. Smoking low-THC cannabis and home cultivation of medical cannabis are both illegal in North Richland Hills. There are no mandatory possession limits under the CUP. Limits are specified by physicians recommending low-THC cannabis to patients. Hence, possession limits vary per patient. The possession limit for each patient is stated on the patient’s medical cannabis prescription.
Patients in North Richland Hills who have valid low-THC cannabis prescriptions issued by CUP-certified healthcare providers can purchase and possess medical cannabis products. Medical marijuana cards are not issued or required in Texas for registered patients. Hence, unlike in other states with medical cannabis programs, a medical marijuana card is not required to buy medical cannabis in Texas.

Approved conditions under the CUP include:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
An incurable neurodegenerative disease, such as Alzheimer's disease
Note that only a CUP-certified healthcare practitioner can add your information to the CURT. You can find CUP-approved healthcare providers in Texas using the certified healthcare provider list on the Texas Department of Public Safety website. If you are under 18, your certifying physician may request the consent of your parent or legal guardian before adding you to the CURT. The registry may also include your parent or legal guardian's information.
