Licensed Texas medical cannabis provider Compassionate Cultivation continues to make history with the successful harvest of the first legal cannabis strain ever created in the state of Texas.
The company’s team of cultivation experts developed this new genetic strain to optimize production of their finished cannabis oil products, which by law must contain at least 10 percent cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis, and no more than 0.5 percent psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

“Compassionate Cultivation is leading the way in bringing the medicinal benefits of cannabis to thousands of Texans across the state,” said Morris Denton, CEO of Compassionate Cultivation. “Now that we’ve developed this proprietary new high-CBD strain, we hope it can become the first to be formally evaluated in a Texas-sanctioned R&D program.”
A formal cannabis R&D program is one of the items expected to be considered during the 2019 Texas state legislative session.
In honor of its Texas origins, the new strain is named “Waterloo,” which is the original name of the 1830s settlement that would become Austin, the capital city.
