Medical cannabis provider adds Arlington to budding list of DFW pickup locations
North Texans are getting greater access to their medical cannabis prescriptions. Prominent statewide medical cannabis supplier Texas Originalhas opened its newest Dallas-Fort Worth location in Arlington, the first to operate in the city.
The new site is inside Organic Living at 801 East Abram St., Suite 203, Arlington. Pickups can be scheduled on Wednesdays between 11:30 am and 3 pm.
Texas Original CEO Nico Richardson says in a press release that his company's mission of changing Texans' lives through the use of medical cannabis is furthered by the addition of this fifth Dallas-Fort Worth location.
"We are focused on providing Texas with better, more convenient access to medical cannabis," says Richardson in the release. "Adding a pickup location in Arlington continues our work to expand access and bring medicine closer to hundreds of thousands of Dallas-Fort Worth residents seeking medical cannabis treatment."
Texas Original owns the largest distribution network in the state for medical cannabis, with four other locations throughout the Metroplex - in North Dallas, Frisco, Addison, and Fort Worth. According to their website, their hope is to change Texas' perspective on marijuana through "the power and the truth of medical cannabis."
"We work for physicians and their patients with current qualifying conditions to supply prescription cannabis that can change lives," the website says.
Conditions that are treated with medical cannabis include many neurodegenerative disorders, neuropathy, PTSD, and epilepsy. Texans with one of these conditions can get a prescription through their physician or an online clinic that is registered with the Compassionate Use Registry of Texas.
Texas Original also has a service to deliver prescriptions directly to patients. According to a press release, their drivers recorded over 830,000 miles in 2022 while delivering medical cannabis prescriptions to patients' homes around the state.
