How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in West Virginia
1. REGISTER ONLINE OR BY PHONE
Our consultants will confidentially discuss any concerns or questions you may have without judgement. We will review your medical records and pre-qualify you for free. Then you’ll set up an appointment either online or virtually with one of our cannabis medicine physicians in West Virginia.
2. TALK TO A MEDICAL MARIJUANA DOCTOR
You’ll meet with your certifying physician in one of our convenient brick-and-mortar locations, or virtually via video chat from the comfort of your own home. The doctor will discuss your condition and symptoms, any current or previous medications you use, and detail some recommendations for an optimized personal cannabis medicine treatment plan – including types, dosages, and more.
3. GET YOUR MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD
Upon certifying your eligibility for a medical card, you then pay your fee to the WV Department of Health and they will send out the physical card. Once in hand, you can visit any dispensary in your state and speak with the pharmacists about which products may be best.
Initial Medical Marijuana Certification
First, you will need to have a written Patient Certification Form to be submitted to the state by a Compassionate Certification Centers physician. You can contact us one of three ways – fill out the form on the website here at www.cccregister.com, use the live-webchat in the bottom corner of your screen (not a bot!), or give us a call at 888-316-9085. Our caring and compassionate cannabis consultants are standing by to help you every step of the way. If you need to obtain your medical records, we can help. We can review your medical history with you to predetermine eligibility before you schedule and send a HIPAA form to your providers office requesting your records for you!
From there, you’ll set up an appointment with one of our physicians – virtually from the comfort of your own home. The appointment will be comfortable and quick! The doctor and staff will discuss your symptoms with you, as well as any previous treatments used. The doctor will then determine if medical cannabis is right for you and make some suggestions regarding products and dosages.
Register for a patient card. The additional requirements for a West Virginia medical marijuana card are as follows:
