AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Texas Original, Texas’ leading provider of medical cannabis, has announced the opening of its brand new prescription pickup location in Waco, TX. The new location is Waco’s first medical cannabis collection site and the state’s first drive-thru location. The pick-up location is open every Friday between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. for patients eligible for the compassionate use program.
Texas Original operates the strongest medical cannabis distribution network in Texas. In addition to its convenient pick-up locations open weekly across the state, the company also delivers prescriptions directly to patients’ doors on a daily and weekly basis. The opening of Waco marks another milestone in the company’s pursuit to expand access to life-changing medical cannabis treatment for every Texan. Waco-area patients like Barry Freeman, who uses medical cannabis to treat PTSD symptoms, now have a convenient option to pick up their prescriptions locally.
“Medical cannabis has helped me sleep better, live without the burden of chronic pain, and eliminate painkillers from my treatment,” Freeman said. “Texas Original’s medicine has changed my life and I am so grateful to have close access to their products through the Waco pickup location.”
Licensed physicians can prescribe medical cannabis to treat conditions such as epilepsy, cancer, PTSD, and hundreds of neurodegenerative disorders. Texas Original’s drug alleviates common symptoms, including chronic pain, insomnia and anxiety, associated with these conditions in thousands of patients. Eligible Waco residents can obtain medical cannabis prescriptions through online clinics or Waco-based physicians registered with the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas.
“Getting your medical cannabis prescription filled should be as easy as taking any other medication,” said Morris Denton, CEO of Texas Original. “Receiving care quickly from the comfort of your car is another important step towards expanding access for our patients. I encourage Waco residents to ask their doctors about the life-changing benefits of medical cannabis and contact us to start feeling relief as soon as possible.
Waco patients can continue to access their prescriptions through the Texas Original distribution network. Today’s announcement also follows the opening of Texas Original’s first permanent medical cannabis collection point in Houston, serving the greater Houston area five days a week. Hours of operation for the company’s permanent location in Houston Heights and other local pickup locations can be found on the Texas Original website here.
Texas Original’s suite of gums, tinctures and lozenges are also available at the company’s dispensary in Austin, Texas. To find out if you or a loved one are eligible for medical cannabis, visit www.texasoriginal.com/patients.
