Booking your appointment has never been easier

Book Your Appointment

Booking your appointment to get your medical marijuana card has never been easier. Just pull up our calendar by clicking Book Now, selecting your state, and then choosing the day and time that works best for you. We can even file your application with the state by selecting the full-service add-on. Everything can be done from home and using a smartphone.

Your Information is 100% Secure

Our secure site allows you to safely file your personal information with 256-bit encryption, versioning, and audit tracking. Once you’ve booked and paid for your appointment, you’ll be prompted to log into your dashboard to complete your intake and health form. After those are filled out, all you have to do is log in to speak with a doctor at your appointment time. We also offer discounts for veterans, medicare, and will submit state paperwork if you like.

HIPAA-Compliant Privacy

Using HIPAA-compliant telemedicine software, you’ll have a personal consultation with a licensed physician. Once that is complete you’ll either have us submit your paperwork or download your physician form and submit that to the state to complete the application process. With a team of professionals available to help you through the process, you’ll quickly see why Elevate Holistics is the obvious choice for going through Missouri’s medical marijuana licensing system.

Getting a medical marijuana card in Peoria, IL will allow you to purchase more marijuana, give more options, and keep the cost down. It can be confusing determining what information you’ll need, the process to complete it and it’s likely you have more questions than when you started. It wasn’t until 2013 that Illinois legalized medical marijuana. Since then the list of qualifying debilitating diseases has risen.

It wasn’t until recently that Illinois legalized the recreational use of marijuana, and has allowed people to grow a certain amount in their homes. There are limits to what you can grow with and without your medical card.

Are you ready to get your medical card? Here’s what you should know before you apply.

Peoria, IL Medical Marijuana Cards

It can be overwhelming trying to determine whether or not you can obtain a medical card. The process is fairly simple – schedule an appointment with a cannabis doctor, complete your online application, wait 30 days for approval then receive your card and start shopping at the Peoria dispensaries.

Here are the simple steps you’ll need to follow,

You must be at least 21 years old, have proof that you’re a resident of Illinois and have one or more of the qualifying conditions to be approved for a medical card. The list of qualifying conditions has over 41 health conditions. 

If you have a CDL driver’s license, a school bus driver permit, or active duty law enforcement, correctional officer, correctional probation officer, or a firefighter you are not able to get a medical marijuana card in Illinois.

Now you’ll need to make an appointment with one of our board-certified doctors at Elevate Holistics for an in-home evaluation to determine if your medical condition qualifies. We’ll qualify your debilitating health condition and send the certification to the state. This certification will be valid for 90 days, so you must complete the application within the time or you’ll need to get certified again. 

You can complete the application through the illinois.gov website. You’ll need to have the required documentation – your Illinois state-issued ID, passport-size photo for verification, your payment, and your physician certification. 

It can take up to 30 days for your application to be reviewed and another 15 days for your medical card to come in the mail. Once you have your card you can visit any dispensary that Peroria, IL has.

Qualifying Conditions to get a medical card

If you’ve been being treated or suffering from a number of medical conditions, it’s likely you’ll be approved to obtain your medical marijuana card in Peoria. Chronic and severe pain, anorexia nervosa, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, autism, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, and severe arthritis are the most common conditions.

The best way to know if your medical condition qualifies for the use of medical marijuana is to be evaluated by a doctor that understands the laws and requirements.

Medical Marijuana doctos in Peoria, IL

The first step to obtaining your medical card is to schedule an appointment with a weed doctor to qualify your medical condition. Illinois does not have a list of medical marijuana doctors for Peoria so you’ll need to do your own research. However, Elevate Holisitcs has already done the legwork for you. Our affordable and easy-to-use telehealth platform will qualify your medical condition from the comfort of your own home by one of our licensed board-certified cannabis doctors. 

Once you’ve been certified the doctor will send the required information to the department and you’ll be able to complete your application online through their portal.  You should receive your card in the mail 15 business days after being approved, and you’ll be able to go to any Peoria dispensary to purchase cannabis.

How long will it take to get a medical card?

Once you’ve submitted your application the Illinois Department of Public Health has 30 business days to review it. Once you’ve been approved you can expect to receive your medical card to come by mail within 15 business days. 

Are medical marijuana cards expensive?

You can purchase a one-year medical card for $50, two years for $100, and three years for $125. You’re allowed up to 3 caregivers, and you’ll be required to pay a fee for them as well.

Peoria dispensaries

Getting approved for your medical marijuana card in Peoria will allow you the ability to purchase more marijuana legally and spend less on your stash.  You’ll find that there are plenty of dispensaries in Peoria. 

At Elevate Holistics we’ve partnered with local businesses to find the best Peoria IL dispensary. Choosing a Peoria Illinois dispensary that is knowledgeable about its products eliminates the confusion with the products that are best suitable for your medical conditions and symptoms. The different strands of marijuana and the options of THC Infused Edibles, CBD oils, THC oils, and tinctures can be overwhelming and they can affect you differently. Take the time to become educated on the products to find the best ones.

You can purchase from any Illinois dispensary and not limited to a Peoria Illinois dispensary only. But no matter what part of the state you will need to provide your medical card to purchase more cannabis products.  

What products does my mmj card allow me to purchase?

As Illinois residents, you can buy or possess up to 30 grams of marijuana, 5 grams of concentrated cannabis, and 500 milligrams of THC-infused edibles.  Getting your medical card allows you to legally possess and purchase more for less money.

Does my card let me grow medical marijuana at home?

Medical marijuana cardholders are allowed to grow their own cannabis. You can grow medical marijuana in your primary residence. However, each household is limited to growing five cannabis plants that are over five inches tall. 

How do I renew my card?

You’ll receive an email when it’s time to renew your medical card in Peoria. You have two different options – an extension renewal or a full recertification renewal.

An extension renewal is a yearly renewal for patients that chose a one-year or two-year card and want to continue using their medical card.

Full certification renewal is for three-year cardholders or if you have allowed your card to expire. You’ll be required to get recertified by a licensed doctor and provide all of the necessary documents just as you did previously.
