With the largest distribution and delivery network in Texas, Texas Original is further expanding its footprint to increase access to patients in the nation’s fourth-largest city
AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Original, Texas’ leading medical cannabis provider, today announced the opening of a permanent pickup location in Houston. The 1,776 square-foot facility is conveniently located in the Heights neighborhood at 1714 Houston Avenue and is the first of its kind in the city. In addition to the new Houston location, Texas Original operates the state’s largest network of pickup locations and delivers weekly to every region throughout the state.
Texas Original’s Houston Avenue location will operate Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and provide patients access to a full suite of medical cannabis products—including gummies, tinctures, and lozenges. As the largest medical cannabis provider in the state, the company’s Houston expansion will serve thousands of existing Texas Original patients and new qualifying patients throughout the greater Houston area.
“This is a monumental step forward for medical cannabis access in Houston and across the state of Texas. Patients in one of the most populated cities in the country can now locally pick up their life-changing medication five days a week,” said Morris Denton, CEO of Texas Original. “Reliable and convenient access to medicine is what all patients deserve—we’re proud to deliver on that promise for Houstonians.”
The company’s robust distribution footprint ensures prescription wait times are minimized and that every patient in Texas can gain consistent access to their medicine under the guidance of their physician.
“The opening of the new Houston pickup location will significantly benefit local medical cannabis patients with busy lives,” said Texas Original patient and Houston resident Frank Cano. “Planning a trip to the pickup location around my day and having the flexibility of daily options to pick up my prescription will ensure I always have my medicine when I need it.”
Texas Original is evaluating other Texas markets for potential pickup locations while the company finalizes its new, vertically integrated cultivation, processing and dispensing facility in Bastrop, Texas, which is set to be completed in the second half of 2022. Patients and caregivers can explore the company’s existing list of pickup locations here.
