How to get a CBD oil prescription or medical cannabis prescription
There are four ways to get a prescription for CBD oil or other medical cannabis products:
- From your doctor or specialist
- From a cannabis nursing service
- From a cannabis clinic (“canna clinic”)
- From a cannabis telemedicine service
Here’s what you can expect from each of these approaches.
Your doctor or specialist
Very few doctors and specialists are readily prescribing cannabis, for a variety of reasons. Many will simply refer you to a cannabis clinic, or even suggest you go buy it from a retail store.
If your doctor is knowledgeable and willing, count yourself lucky. That said, they are unlikely to have time to educate you on all of the ins-and-outs of medical cannabis, or help you decide which licensed producer to register with. Nor are they likely to have staff at their clinic who can help.
Some doctors may have a single licensed producer that they have a relationship with. They will forward your prescription to that producer, who will then call you to help you choose a product. It’s convenient for the doctor, but it doesn’t leave the patient with any choice of producer. This is unfortunate because no single producer can meet the diversity of needs that patients have.
[By the way, Wayfare works with quite a few doctors who are prescribing cannabis but count on us to provide educational support to their patients. We can even help prepare documents you can take to your doctor.]
Cannabis nursing service
You can think of this service as a mobile clinic. The nurse will come to your home, provide education, take a medical history and connect with a doctor or Nurse Practitioner to obtain the authorization. She will also help you select an appropriate product and develop a detailed treatment plan and dosing schedule. She will then help register you with a licensed producer so you can order products by phone or on-line, and will follow up with you semi-weekly while you work toward your goal.
The cost for this service is usually fully-covered by insurance as a home nursing expense.
Wayfare falls into this category, although we do often work with patients’ own doctors, and there are some cannabis clinics who refer to us to provide extra support for patients. We are now also providing a telehealth option as well.
Over the past few years a number of specialized cannabis clinics have opened up. These are typically staffed by doctors who work there on a part-time basis. These doctors may come from specialties including psychiatry, surgery, and anesthesiology. This means that some patients may see a heart surgeon for their arthritis! But really, bless these doctors for making time to learn about cannabis and help people.
The educational portion of your visit, where you select a licensed producer and product, is quite often handled by a lay person who may have the title of “cannabis educator”, “canna counsellor”, or “patient educator”. These people rarely have medical training, although they may be knowledgable about particular strains, the pricing programs of the various producers, and how to use a vaporizer.
Cannabis telemedicine services
You can get on a video conference with a doctor or Nurse Practitioner, who will assess you and provide an authorization for medical cannabis. Some of these services are stand-alone whereas others are provided by cannabis clinics as described above.
The educational component of the service may again be handled by a lay person, sometimes via a separate video call or by telephone through a call centre.

Want to Learn More About Medical Marijuana?
Is medical marijuana in Texas legal?
Yes! Medical marijuana has been legal since 2015 in the State of Texas. The Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) is a program that allows physicians to register and prescribe THC cannabis to patients with certain medical conditions. CURT has helped thousands of patients seeking medical relief and Texas 420 Doctors aids in this process by providing medical marijuana to those in need. We are board-certified and here to help.
How do I qualify for medical marijuana in Texas?
As per Texas state law, any patient with a qualifying condition can apply. What is a qualifying condition? If you have a history of any of the following conditions you may be eligible:
6. Multiple Sclerosis
11. Seizure Disorders
12. Any Neurodegenerative Disease (that lacks a cure)
Can any doctor prescribe medical marijuana in Texas?
In order to stay compliant with Texas state law, only physicians that are board-certified and are active and registered with CURT have the ability to prescribe medical cannabis in Texas. All of our doctors meet the requirements to prescribe medical marijuana.
Can you give me medical marijuana for my back pain?
Currently chronic, non-cancerous pain isn’t a qualifying condition. However, this may change in Texas. You may join our waiting list until you can get approved when it becomes a qualifying condition.
Where can I pick up my prescription? Can I get it delivered?
You may obtain your prescription for medical marijuana at any Texas dispensary either from their statewide delivery service or at any authorized pickup location.
What kinds of medical marijuana are available in Texas?
There are always new medications and products being released by Texas dispensaries that are operating legally. At this time, edibles, sublingual products, sprays, and beverages are all available at dispensaries, but smokable products, concentrates, and vape products are not yet available. We also provide supplementary products to aid in the most effective treatment for our patients.
Is there a medical card for marijuana in Texas? Do I have to carry one with me?
Although many people use the term “medical card” to refer to a prescription in Texas, you will not receive a physical card from Texas 420 Doctors. After your initial evaluation with our doctors, you will be provided with an official letter that is signed and approved which may be presented to local law enforcement. This approval letter gives you legitimacy and protection while using your medication.
If I have a medical marijuana prescription, can I still own a gun?
Yes. Being a medical cannabis patient in Texas doesn’t remove your constitutional rights, including your right to bear arms.
Can I take my prescribed medical marijuana product when I travel?
There is some gray area here—the answer to this question is both yes and no. Although, TSA has publicly confirmed that they aren’t actively searching for your cannabis prescription, it’s best to check with your airline and associated state of travel prior to traveling to understand the legalities in their jurisdiction. Marijuana is still illegal at the federal level and it is still technically a crime to transport it across state lines, even if TSA says they are not seeking to enforce that rule.
