Texas recently expanded access to medical marijuana, and now a mobile dispensary is hitting the road to educate Texans on cannabis.

According to a press release from Parallel, the company behind goodblend Texas, a CannaBus tour is set to roll through Central Texas in November.

What's the CannaBus tour?

goodblend Texas has launched the first-of-its-kind mobile cannabis dispensary and educational tour across the state of Texas to bring awareness to the state's medical cannabis program and provide a simple experience for prospective patients who need a medical cannabis prescription.

Medical Marijuana and the Texas Compassionate Use Program

This goodblend CannaBus tour follows Texas House Bill 1535, which significantly expanded access to the Texas Compassionate Use Program (TCUP, Program) by adding Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and all forms of cancer to the list of qualifying conditions. With the addition of these conditions, millions more Texans now qualify for the TCUP. Today, less than ten thousand patients are currently registered in the Program.

"While it's great news that more Texans with specific conditions may be eligible to benefit from the Texas Compassionate Use Program, the challenge is that most Texans simply do not know that medical cannabis exists as a treatment option or that it may help address debilitating pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, stress and anxiety, and sleeplessness," said Marcus Ruark, President of goodblend Texas.

"We aim to help bridge this gap through Texas' first goodblend CannaBus tour for education and awareness. The CannaBus tour represents how goodblend Texas intends to lead the way to the future of cannabis by providing patients a trusted, approachable way to demystify how to access medical cannabis and to educate on the potential benefits of our array of high-quality products, many of which are firsts in Texas."

Yes, It's A Real Bus

The goodblend CannaBus dispensary is a retrofitted 36 foot vehicle that is designed with a physician consultation room and an on-board cannabis dispensary featuring goodblend Texas' broad portfolio of innovative product offerings. The tour events will also include an outdoor education installation.

  • General admission is free and includes access to the educational installation, a 1:1 personalized Q&A session with a goodblend dispensary guide, and eligibility for exclusive product promotional offers.
  • Appointments with a state-registered, board-certified physician to obtain a cannabis prescription are available for $150 and include a 20 minute 1:1 consultation. Should they meet the criteria for the Program, the physician will write a prescription that can be filled immediately in the on-board goodblend CannaBus dispensary.
