Medical Cannabis Prescriptions for PTSD

Dr. Marks Advocates on Behalf of Medical Cannabis Patients in Texas

Dr. Robert Marks and Veterans, David Bass and Tim Jensen, for Medical Cannabis for PTSD

Welcome to Texas Herb Clinic’s blog, The Blunt Truth. For years, Dr. Marks bravely rejected stigma and advocated on behalf of his patients’ safe access to medical cannabis in Texas. For nearly a decade, he and respected veteran, teacher and medical marijuana advocate, David Bass have testified at the Texas State Capital in an effort to first pass and later expand medical marijuana access for the deserving patients of Texas. After an initial even more limited list of qualifying conditions was initially established, a huge advancement occurred in 2021 when Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was added to the list of qualifying conditions to become registered on the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas (CURT) necessary to obtain medicinal marijuana. Since then, veterans and thousands of others who experience PTSD qualify for medical cannabis treatment in Texas. You do not need to be a veteran to qualify. All civilians and first responders who have experienced traumatic circumstances may also qualify. If you suspect that you are experiencing PTSD, we can evaluate your condition and help you to navigate the Texas Compassionate Use Program.
