How to qualify for a Medical Marijuana Card in Virginia?

Virginia residents may be surprised to learn that most chronic medical conditions qualify for medical cannabis treatment. In fact, the state recently expanded its list of qualifying conditions to include ‘any condition a physician and patient believe will benefit from treatment.’

Patients will also need to show proof of Virginia residency by showing a current driver’s license or state-issued identification.

After having your medical marijuana evaluation and obtaining your recommendation, the doctor will enter your approval into the state’s medical marijuana registry. Once you are entered into the registry, you can then access all dispensaries across the state of Virginia.

Patients can connect right from a smartphone, tablet or computer for a secure video conference with a 20-30 minute consultation with one of the doctors.
