St. Charles Medical Marijuana Cards

Illinois has legalized marijuana for both medical and recreational use. While marijuana is now available to everyone recreationally, getting a medical card comes with some helpful benefits for those with qualifying conditions. With a medical card, you can buy larger quantities of cannabis products, and you also benefit from a lower tax rate on the products you buy. 

Getting a medical marijuana card in St. Charles, IL, may seem daunting at first, but the process doesn’t have to be confusing. At Elevate Holistics, we offer secure telehealth appointments with licensed medical marijuana doctors, so you can get your card from the comfort of your home. Here’s what you need to know about medical marijuana in St. Charles. 

How To Get A Medical Marijuana Card In St. Charles

To get a medical marijuana card in Illinois, you’ll have to confirm that you meet the qualifying requirements. You must have one of the state’s designated qualifying conditions, and you also must be able to prove legal Illinois residency. You must either be over the age of 18, or be a minor with a designated caregiver. 

The first step is to meet with one of the many medical marijuana doctors in St. Charles, IL. Not every doctor is licensed to prescribe medical marijuana, so check to make sure that your doctor is. Once they determine that you have a qualifying condition, they will fill out a form with the Medical Cannabis Patient Registry Program. Then, you will need to go online and complete the patient registration form. This includes paying the patient registry fee, which is $50 for one year, $100 for two years, or $125 for three years. There are reduced fees available for some patients. You will also need to submit proof of residency, which can include a driver’s license, state ID, bank statements, or utility bills addressed to you. Finally, you’ll need to provide a passport-style photo to go on your card. 

Once you complete the application, it will be sent for review. If it is approved, your medical card will be sent to you, and you visit a designated St. Charles marijuana dispensary to pick up the products you need. 

St. Charles Qualifying Conditions

In order to get a medical card in Illinois, you must have one of the state’s qualifying medical conditions. The list of qualifying conditions in Illinois is fairly exhaustive and includes both physical and mental health conditions. Some of these include cancer, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism, and much more. If you have any kind of chronic medical condition that is causing ongoing pain or stress, it may be worth checking with a medical marijuana doctor to see if you qualify. 

How Much Does It Cost To Get A Medical Marijuana Card in St. Charles? 

To get a medical marijuana card in St. Charles, you’ll need to pay the patient application fees, which start at $50 for a one-year registration and go up to $125 for a three-year registration. If you are a veteran or qualify for SSDI, you will likely qualify for a reduced patient application fee. 

Additionally, you will need to pay to visit a medical marijuana doctor. How much does a visit to a marijuana doctor in St. Charles cost? Health insurance generally does not cover the cost of these visits, and the cost will vary depending on your provider. However, Elevate Holistics offers very affordable telehealth consultations starting at $75 for a 30-minute visit. 

While you will have to pay these costs up front, getting a medical marijuana card can save you money in the long run when buying medical marijuana in Illinois. This is because medical marijuana cardholders save money on cannabis taxes. 

How Does A Missouri Medical Marijuana Card Work In St. Charles? 

Because Missouri is so close to Illinois, Missouri residents with a medical marijuana card may wonder if they can use it to buy cannabis products in Illinois. Unfortunately, Illinois does not currently have any reciprocity laws in place for medical marijuana, which means that you cannot use a Missouri medical card at a medical dispensary in Illinois. However, marijuana is available to everyone for recreational use, so you can visit a recreational dispensary and purchase products there regardless of your residency status. 

How Long Is My Medical Marijuana Card Good For? 

When you sign up for a medical marijuana card in Illinois, you can choose the length of registration that you would like to pay for. You can opt to register your card for one, two, or three years at a time. When your medical marijuana card expires, you will have the option to re-certify and extend your registration. 

Medical Marijuana Doctors in St. Charles

When getting your medical marijuana card in St. Charles, it’s important to make sure you go through a licensed doctor. Not all doctors are licensed to prescribe medical marijuana. Visiting the right type of doctor is important for legal reasons, but it also ensures you get the care you need. Medical marijuana doctors are very knowledgeable and can help you find the specific products and dosage that is right for you. 

Can I Have A Caregiver in St. Charles?

Caregivers are allowed in St. Charles, Illinois for medical marijuana patients in certain circumstances. For example, you may need a caregiver if your symptoms prohibit you from physically visiting the dispensary. You will also need a caregiver if you are under the age of 18. The process of registering as a caregiver is similar to registering as a patient. In a caregiver situation, the patient will visit a medical marijuana doctor and get the necessary approval, and then both the patient and the caregiver will need to complete a registration form and pay a fee with the Medical Cannabis Patient Registry Program. It’s important to note that the caregiver registration form is only available in a paper format and you will have to submit it by mail, so it may take a little longer to get approved.

Where Can I Buy Medical Marijuana in St. Charles? 

While there are recreational dispensaries in St. Charles, the best place to buy with a medical card is at a St. Charles medical marijuana dispensary. When you go to a dispensary that is specifically licensed to sell medical marijuana, you can purchase larger quantities and benefit from lower tax rates. There are several medical marijuana dispensary options in St. Charles and the surrounding cities, as well as throughout the Chicago area, so it’s easy to find the products you need. 

Local Medical Marijuana Dispensaries 

Elevate Holistics partners with local medical marijuana dispensaries in the St. Charles area. You’ll have many options when it comes to finding the right dispensary for you. In the past, Illinois medical marijuana patients were required to choose one dispensary to buy from, but now they have the option to visit any medical marijuana dispensary. 

What Are The Medical Marijuana Possession Limits in St Charles? 

Any resident in Illinois can possess 30 grams of flower, 5 grams of cannabis concentrate, or 500 milligrams of THC in edibles. However, the possession limits for those with a medical marijuana card are significantly higher. Medical patients can possess up to 2.5 ounces or 71 grams of cannabis products at any point during a 14-day period. If you need more marijuana to treat your symptoms, doctors also have the option to recommend more. 

It’s important to note that if you are caught possessing more than the legal amount of marijuana, it is a class A misdemeanor that is subject to a fine and potential jail time. 

Can I Grow Medical Marijuana In St. Charles? 

While recreational users cannot grow their own marijuana, medical marijuana patients are permitted to grow it in small quantities. You can grow up to five plants over five inches tall, but they must be in an enclosed area and not publicly visible. If you consume large amounts of marijuana, growing your own at home can be a good way to save money. If you are caught growing weed without a medical card, or you are caught growing more weed than is legally allowed, you could be subject to legal consequences. 

Getting a medical marijuana card in St. Charles ensures that you can get the cannabis products you need to live a healthy life. Elevate Holistics makes it easier than ever to get your medical marijuana card. With secure, HIPAA compliant telehealth appointments, we can help you get your medical card online from the comfort of your own home.
