The answer is both yes and no, depending on whether you satisfy very narrowly defined criteria. The Compassionate Use Act (Texas Health and Safety Code, Chapter 487) makes it legal for individuals with intractable epilepsy to possess CBD oil if they satisfy the following requirements:
See Texas Occupations Code section 169.003. Also, Texas Health and Safety Code section 481.111 sets out the exemption to prosecution for possession of CBD oil (“low-THC cannabis”) for individuals who satisfy the above requirements.
Even if you meet the above requirements, it is still illegal under Federal law for you to possess CBD oil.
