How to Get a Virginia Medical Marijuana Card Online: Your Step-by-Step Process
Whether you’re looking to get a Virginia medical marijuana card for your chronic pain, nausea, or something similar, we’ve got you covered.
At Elevate Holistics, we’ll walk you through the quick, easy process of obtaining your VA MMJ card right from the comfort of home. In just three easy steps, you’ll be getting your medical card in no time.
Meet With an MMJ Doctor (Like Us!)
The first step is to see a doctor who is licensed by the Virginia Board of Pharmacy to prescribe medical marijuana. They will need to diagnose you with a condition that they believe could benefit from marijuana treatment.
After your physician has diagnosed you, they will give you a written certification that you will then use as part of your registration process.
If you don’t know where to find a licensed physician, don’t worry! Elevate Holistics has a team of licensed Virginia medical marijuana doctors that can give you the help you need.
Get Approved and Register With the State
Once you have your registration, the next step is to apply for a card online through the Virginia Board of Pharmacy. As part of the online application, you’ll provide some basic information about yourself, including your address and Social Security Number.
You’ll also submit the written certification from your doctor. Additionally, you will need to prove your Virginia residency with a driver’s license or state ID.
Finally, you’ll need to pay the application fee of $50.
After submitting the application, the Virginia Board of Pharmacy will review it and make a decision in one to two weeks.
VA no longer requires a physical card, so you will have to present your ID and physician’s form at the dispensary to start shopping.
Virginia Medical Marijuana Qualifying Conditions
Unlike in other states, Virginia does not have an official list of qualifying conditions. It is all dependent on your doctor’s professional opinion and whether they believe you could benefit from treatment.
Because Virginia does not have rigid laws about qualifying conditions, it’s worth visiting a doctor if you believe you could benefit from medical marijuana.
We are a team who believes in the medical benefits of cannabis; but, we’re also keenly aware that a large percentage of the population doesn’t know where to start on their cannabis journey. This is why we promise to treat every patient with respect, compassion, and love.
We’re all on our own journey and we promise to respect yours.
How Long Does it Take to Get a Virginia Medical Marijuana Card?
How long it takes to get your Virginia medical marijuana card will vary, but most people find that they’re approved within about 7-10 days, and then you’ll get your MMJ card within the month.
Virginia Medical Marijuana Doctors
Elevate Holistics can help you get your marijuana certification online. We offer secure, affordable, and HIPAA-compliant telehealth appointments with registered Virginia medical marijuana doctors.
Our doctors will consult with you, and if you qualify for a medical marijuana card, they’ll help you with the registration process.
Can Minors Get Medical Cards in Virginia?
Yes, minors can get medical cards in Virginia! However, they cannot do so on their own. They must rely on a caregiver — typically a parent or guardian — to register on behalf of them. This caregiver will also visit dispensaries, purchase products, and even administer the MMJ for the minor if need be.
