Is THC Oil Legal in Texas?

THC oil is illegal in Texas unless you fall within the qualifications set forth by the Compassionate Use Act. The Compassionate Use Act and House Bill 3703 authorize the prescription of “low-THC” products for specific medicinal purposes, but the oil must contain no more than 0.5% tetrahydrocannabinol.

Tetrahydrocannabinol is the main psychoactive component of cannabis. The penalties for possession of THC oil for recreational use are determined by quantity but are comparatively harsh. THC oil is classified differently than cannabis in plant form and is considered a Penalty Group 2 controlled substance in Texas. Individuals who are convicted of possessing THC concentrates and oils automatically face felony charges. This includes THC oil used in vape cartridges.

If you were charged with possession of THC oil or cannabis concentrates, contact a Dallas drug possession attorney at Peveto Law. The initial consultation is confidential and free of charge.
