In 2020, Dr. Francisco Medrano was recognized as the first board-certified hospice and palliative care physician approved by the Texas Compassionate Use Act to recommend low-THC medical cannabis to patients diagnosed with qualifying medical conditions and for conditions related to palliative medicine.
Dr. Medrano is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Palliative Care and Hospice Care, Co-founder of CannaMedRx, and a hospice and palliative care medical director. Dr. Medrano has provided healthcare to the city of Houston for many years and is now transforming lives throughout the entire state of Texas. With his knowledge and expertise in medical cannabis, he has helped many patients navigate the symptoms of spasticity, ALS, terminal cancer, and other severe diagnosis and life-limiting diseases. Dr. Medrano is pleased to see Texas expand the Compassionate Use Program, with the changes of House Bill 1535 beginning September 01, 2021, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and chronic pain are eligible diagnoses. Veterans with PTSD have been lobbying for years to get their diagnosis eligible for the state’s medical-marijuana program. CannaMedRx is a legal, safe, and effective way to access medical cannabis.
