The largest city in Texas will get its first legal medical cannabis dispensary this summer
AUSTIN, Texas, March 15, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Texas Original Compassionate Cultivation (TXOG), Texas’ leading medical cannabis provider, today announced it will open a permanent dispensary in Houston—the first of its kind in the city—this summer. The Houston dispensary will operate six days per week and will offer TXOG’s full suite of medical cannabis products—including gummies, tinctures and lozenges—to qualifying patients.
Since medical cannabis licensees are prohibited under the Compassionate Use Program from storing inventory overnight in multiple locations, TXOG and its fleet of delivery drivers will supply daily inventory to the Houston dispensary and return it to Austin after operating hours. It is the company’s latest effort to bring its medicine closer to patients.
“What’s most important is ensuring every qualifying patient in Houston has safe access to medical cannabis,” said Morris Denton, CEO of TXOG. “If that means someone from our team has to commute from Austin to Houston and back every day, which is at least five hours, we’ll do it. Creating and leading this industry in Texas takes commitment, and this is just one more proof point illustrating our dedication to expanding our footprint to meet patients
