"How to Support CBD Oil & Medical Cannabis in Texas"

Cannabis: there are so many benefits and so few side effects, it’s taking the world and North America by storm; eight states (Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California, Nevada, Maine, and Massachusetts) and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational and medical marijuana, and twenty others have legalized some form of medical marijuana. Cannabis and hemp are different because cannabis contains high levels of THC while hemp, particularly industrial hemp, does not. Industrial hemp is extremely strong, requires little water to grow compared to cotton, and is used in the United States for many different products. CBD oils (hemp plant extracts) can help patients and those suffering from many illnesses and disorders feel better, live productive lives, and prevent addiction to painkillers and other damaging pharmaceuticals.

How Can CBD Oil Help Patients in Texas?

Currently, medical cannabis CBD oil in Texas is only legal for medical cannabis patients with intractable epilepsy (meaning the condition cannot be controlled by any other type of medication or therapy on the market). But the effects of CBD oil go far beyond treating epilepsy – it has been shown to help with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Alzheimer’s, addiction to other substances like nicotine and opioids, diabetes, fibromyalgia, schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, and chronic insomnia. Studies that measure the impact of CBD oil in medicines, therapies, and as a preventive treatment for mental illnesses or other health concerns are increasing rapidly. Although past prohibition has kept the public in the dark about the positive effects of CBD oil, new legalization laws and scientific and medical studies are shedding light on what is a viable and effective treatment for many people.

Industrial Hemp is Legal in Texas

Due to the outdated and overly restrictive prohibition laws of the past century, industrial hemp is still illegal to grow in Texas, but it can be imported and used for medicine, paper, and other materials. KRISTV reported that “support is growing across Texas for legislation that would allow farmers the opportunity to grow hemp,” noting that hundreds of millions of dollars might be brought into the lone star state’s economy if a new bill was passed in 2017. Since the marijuana and hemp legalization process began to gain ground, 29 other states now allow industrial hemp, which has helped rural economies that may have been drowning in debt or lack of revenue. Another bonus for epileptic medical cannabis patients in Texas is the legality of CBD oil extracted from hemp plants, which can help them live happier, healthier, longer, and more productive lives.

Who Can Buy Green Lotus Hemp CBD Oil?

Under current state and federal law, Green Lotus Hemp CBD oil is available to anyone across the nation – each patient can decide which dosage is right, and no doctor recommendation or prescription is needed. If CBD oil is right for you, go here to purchase it. Get the new year started by increasing your health. Green Lotus Hemp will apply for state licenses in July of 2017, making medical cannabis available at its locations for epilepsy patients.

Texas Marijuana Laws

Texas legalized medical marijuana under SB339. Texas recreational marijuana laws are still restrictive, but CBD (or industrial hemp) oils are legal and available to medical cannabis patients within and without the great state of Texas. House Bill 557 and House Bill 1322 both failed last year in Texas’ government, but the state has forged ahead with marijuana decriminalization recently. House Bill 81 was filed this November following the legalization vote on cannabis in so many other states, and if passed it will decriminalize possession of less than an ounce of cannabis, requiring a small fine and no time in jail. SJR 17 is currently in motion in the Texas government as well, and would allow for the regulation, possession, sale, and cultivation of cannabis on a broad level. Join your local NORML chapter, write your local or state representatives about your support for cannabis legalization, or check out Marijuana Policy Project’s website for more ways you can help. A 2015 poll demonstrated that 68% of Texans support decriminalization of marijuana possession, while 75% support marijuana law reform, so you are not alone.
