AUSTIN, TX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Original Texas Compassionate Culture (TXOG), Texas’ leading medical cannabis supplier, today announced that 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 a week and will offer TXOG’s full line of medical cannabis products, including gummies, tinctures and lozenges, to eligible 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 provide daily inventory to the Houston dispensary and send them back to Austin after hours. This is the company’s latest effort to bring its medicines closer to patients.
“The most important thing is to ensure that every eligible patient in Houston has safe access to medical cannabis,” said Morris Denton, CEO of TXOG. “If that means a member of our team has to commute from Austin to Houston and back every day, which is at least five hours, we will. Building and leading this industry in Texas takes commitment, and this is just more proof of our commitment to expanding our footprint to meet patients where they are.
The company is also evaluating the opening of potential dispensaries in other Texas markets in 2022. As of 2020, TXOG has been working with physician offices across the state to provide patients with temporary and convenient prescription pickup locations. The company currently operates a dozen pickup locations including Addison, North Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Katy, Lubbock, Plano, San Antonio, Spring and Wichita Falls.
“We are grateful to the physicians who have allowed us to establish collection points and distribute TXOG’s life-changing drugs from their facilities over the past year,” Denton added. “They have been such valuable partners in enabling TXOG to reach our thousands of patients across the state. Soon, in addition to our existing Houston pickup locations, patients will have daily, convenient access to their prescriptions directly in their own backyard.
TXOG’s gummies, tinctures and lozenges are also available for statewide delivery at www.texasoriginal.com, for pickup at the TXOG dispensary in Austin, TX, and the aforementioned prescription pickup locations. TXOG is also expansion to Bastrop, Texaswith a new vertically integrated cultivation, processing and distribution facility to be completed in the second half of 2022.
