Texas to Roll Out First CBD Sales By End of Year
Author: Monterey Bud  27/11/2017 - 17:23:00

In compliance with the Texas Compassionate Use Act, by Dec. 31, Knox Medical is expected to begin delivering its CBD oil throughout the Lone Star State. 

Considered overly restrictive by many, the passage of Senate Bill 339 opened the door for a limited medical marijuana program in the Lone Star State nearly two years ago. 

The Texas Compassionate Use Act was introduced by Sen. Kevin Eltife (R-Tyler) and won approval with a 26 to 5 vote in the Senate and a 96 to 34 vote in the House. Officially signed by the Texas Legislature on May 20, 2015, Gov. Greg Abbott signed Senate Bill 339 into law on June 1, 2015. 

Regulated and overseen by the Texas Department of Public Safety, legal participation in the program will exclude any form of whole plant consumption — i.e., smoking. Instead, rather than lighting up to medicate, qualified patients will be legally permitted to access low-THC cannabis oil/extracts.
