The Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) regulates the practice of chiropractic care in Texas. The Board's function is to protect the public and to ensure that Texas chiropractors have a strong understanding of their chosen profession and follow ethical expectations.
In recent years the cultural landscape regarding marijuana and marijuana products has seen a shift. The TBCE has received questions regarding the use and legality of Cannabidiol (CBD) products in Texas. While there are no specific agency administrative rules or Texas State statutes that speak to the use of CBD products in chiropractic care, the Board has issued notes of caution.
Licensees who wish to incorporate this type of treatment into their practice should proceed with care. First, the TBCE has no jurisdiction over the regulation of CBD products. Second, the TBCE has not and will not give an opinion whether any product is or is not legal to use or sell. That is not the function of the Board.
If you choose to incorporate CBD treatment into your chiropractic care, we urge you to proceed with caution. The TBCE recommends that licensees with questions on this issue consult with their private attorney.
