Texas cannabis supplier goodblend early this fall will open a shop for patients enrolled in Texas' limited medical marijuana program.

Goodblend is one of three approved suppliers under Texas' Compassionate Use Program and is on pace to be the first to open a permanent distribution point in the Alamo City. Up to this point, approved suppliers have made scheduled deliveries to clinics and other spots for San Antonio patients to pick up their cannabis products.

The new 2,000-square-foot store, located at 18720 Stone Oak Parkway #107, will open in early fall and will employ five people, according to company officials.

Potential customers can get a preview of the location the weekend of Aug. 26-27, when it will play host to goodblend's CannaBus, 36-foot mobile clinic where prospective patients can meet with clinicians for same-day enrollment. At present, the company has no plans to operate its San Antonio distribution spot as a clinic.

Qualifying patients who visit the CannaBus that weekend will receive a discounted $99 prescription and will be able to spin a wheel for a shot at a free prescription as well, officials also said.

One other state-approved cannabis supplier — Texas Original — has said it plans to open a San Antonio storefront by the end of the year. Officials with that firm haven't shared the proposed location.

Texas' medical cannabis program — one of the most restrictive in the United States — is open to patients with PTSD, all forms of cancer and a variety of other ailments. Advocates lobbied during this year's legislative session to expand eligibility to include pain patients but were unsuccessful.
