Texas Original Compassionate Cultivation Celebrates Fourth Anniversary After Serving More Than 8,000 Medical Cannabis Patients Throughout Texas

October 28, 2021 GMT

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 28, 2021--

Texas Original Compassionate Cultivation (TXOG), Texas’ leading medical cannabis provider, commemorates its fourth anniversary providing the highest-quality medical cannabis to patients suffering from a variety of conditions and symptoms throughout Texas. Since the company’s founding in 2017, it has achieved numerous cultivation and operational milestones, launched a variety of new medical cannabis products and announced it is expanding to a new, state-of-the-art medical cannabis cultivation and processing facility in Bastrop, Texas, next year.

TXOG planted its first cannabis seeds on Oct. 31, 2017, paving the way to serve more than 8,000 patients throughout Texas by October 2021. The company produces all of its plants in-house and, to date, has completed more than 70 harvests. TXOG also bred the first cultivars grown 100% in the state of Texas—Type III Waterloo as well as Type II Bluebonnet, with a third cultivar in the making—and optimized its facility with 100% LED lighting to average approximately 140 grams per square foot per cultivation room.

“It has been an incredible four years of meeting, serving and advocating for thousands of deserving Texans seeking relief through medical cannabis,” said Morris Denton, CEO of TXOG. “As the only licensed medical cannabis producer based in the state, we’ve dedicated every day to focusing specifically on what’s best for Texas. We’ve invested in cultivating the highest-quality medicine, developed highly effective products based directly on patient feedback, built the strongest team and reached every corner of the state. We’re looking ahead to an exciting year as we move to Bastrop, grow our organization and work with legislators to expand the Compassionate Use Program to grant more patients access to the life-changing power of medical cannabis.”

In addition to its cultivation achievements and to meet increased patient demand, TXOG continues to navigate Texas’ tightly regulated medical cannabis program barring producers from storing inventory beyond one location. Since 2017, TXOG’s drivers have driven hundreds of thousands of miles to deliver medical cannabis prescriptions directly to patients’ doorsteps. TXOG has also expanded its patient reach through eight convenient prescription pick-up locations throughout Texas, including its newest sites in Fort Worth and North Houston.

The company’s anniversary follows its recent appointments to TXOG’s cultivation and operations teams as well as the hiring of its new chief financial officer. TXOG’s gummies, tincture and lozenge products are available for statewide delivery at www.texasoriginal.com, at their dispensary in Austin, Texas, and through the company’s convenient patient pick-up locations in North Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.
