Schulenburg, a rural Texas town known for its polka museum and Czech pastries, is about to become home to the first Texas cannabis dispensary.

A quaint rural town perched midway between San Antonio and Houston, off Texas’ Highway 10, is about to see an increase in traffic come this December. No, the town of Schulenburg isn’t some popular holiday destination. But it is about to be the site of the first Texas cannabis dispensary.

As its name might suggest, Schulenburg, Texas, is a remote enclave of German culture. With a population hovering around 3,000, the small town is home to the Texas Polka Music Museum.

And in December, it will also become host to the first Texas cannabis dispensary.

The dispensary, Knox Medical, received its state license this summer. The owner, Jose Hidalgo, also runs licensed medical cannabis operations in Florida and Puerto Rico.

Hidalgo explained that he chose the sparsely-populated town for strategic reasons. In terms of logistics, the location puts him within a couple hours’ trip from Austin, Houston and San Antonio. Land is also a premium for Hidalgo’s grow operation.

“We require a large amount of land,” he said.

The grow operation and dispensary will be located on the same site. Hidalgo plans to produce his CBD-rich cannabis oil there.

According to Texas Public Radio, opinions on the dispensary vary among Schulenburg residents. Many didn’t seem to have much in the way of comment either way….
