    It's hard for me to really recommend Elevate Holistics because I have had difficulty with My Registration and maneuvering My Way Through The Website. I have been able to communicate with EV's Staff so hopefully tomorrow or Tuesday I will look forward to completing My Registration.

Many people wonder how to get a medical marijuana card in the state of Virginia. Medical marijuana can be very effective for treating a wide variety of physical and mental health conditions. Getting a marijuana prescription in Virginia may seem daunting at first, but the process doesn’t have to be difficult. At Elevate Holistics, we’re here to help you get your Virginia medical card, so you can get the products and treatment that you need.

Is Medical Marijuana Legal in Virginia?

Virginia medical marijuana laws have changed over time, so it makes sense that many people are unclear about whether or not medical marijuana is legal in this state. Right now, cannabis products are legal in the United States for both medical and recreational use.

Medical marijuana in Virginia has been used to treat cancer and glaucoma for decades, but the state opted to expand their medical marijuana program in 2018. The first official medical marijuana dispensaries opened in 2020. The Virginia board of medicine is expected to approve and open more medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the state in the coming years.

The possession of small amounts of recreational marijuana was decriminalized in 2020, and marijuana became fully legal for recreational use in 2021. However, the first recreational dispensaries are unlikely to open until at least 2024.

Steps To Get A Medical Marijuana Card in Virginia

Many people wonder how to get a medical marijuana card in Virginia. The first step is to see a doctor who is licensed with 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. 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. Common conditions that can benefit from medical marijuana treatment include cancer, glaucoma, PTSD, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and more. 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.

After your physician has diagnosed you, they will need to give you a written certification. You will then use this written certification as part of your registration process. 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.

Once you have your registration, you’ll need 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. If you are approved, they will send you your official medical marijuana card in the mail, which will be valid for one year. When you are ready to renew your card, you will need to re-apply using the same process.

How To Get CBD Oil in Virginia

Many people wonder – is CBD legal in Virginia? CBD products have become very popular over the past few years. CBD is a compound derived from cannabis, but unlike THC, it does not give you a sensation of being ‘high’. CBD derived from hemp is legal throughout the United States. Virginia CBD laws in 2020 state that CBD derived from marijuana is legal for medical patients. Now that marijuana has been legalized for recreational use, it is likely that anyone will be able to buy CBD derived from marijuana in the future.

You can buy products containing CBD derived from hemp at many physical and online retailers throughout Virginia. For a broader selection of CBD products, you will need to visit a medical marijuana dispensary.

Where Can I Find A Dispensary in Virginia?

Dispensaries are still relatively rare in Virginia, as they only started to open up in 2020. Right now, there are dispensaries open in Richmond, Manassas, Salem, Abingdon, and Portsmouth. This means that some patients may need to travel longer distances to use their medical card in Virginia. However, we can expect more dispensaries to open up in the near future, as the program is still so new.

What Are Considered Qualifying Conditions in Virginia?

Qualifying conditions in Virginia work differently than they do in many other states. Instead of having an official list, Virginia leaves it up to their licensed doctors to determine whether or not someone is a good candidate for medical marijuana. This allows for increased flexibility when developing a treatment plan. Many doctors will recommend marijuana for serious medical conditions that cause chronic pain and nausea, as well as neurological and mental health conditions. Medical marijuana can be used in conjunction with or as an alternative to other treatments. If you think you could benefit from medical marijuana, it may be worth talking to a doctor to get their professional opinion.

What Are The Reciprocity Laws in Virginia?

A common question many people have about their medical cards is, “can I use my medical card in another state?” (2020) Right now, Virginia does not have any reciprocity agreements in place with other states. This means that if you have a medical card from another state, you will not be able to use it in Virginia. You will have to prove Virginia residency and re-apply in Virginia if this is the case. However, there are some other states that have reciprocity laws that will allow you to use your Virginia medical marijuana card. You’ll need to check each individual state’s requirements before attempting to purchase medical marijuana there.

What Is The Cost Of A Medical Marijuana Card in Virginia?

When you apply to get your medical marijuana card in Virginia, you will need to pay a $50 registration fee. You will have to pay this fee every year when you renew your card. If you are registering as a parent, guardian, or caregiver for someone else who needs medical marijuana treatment, you will have to pay a $25 fee.

Additionally, you will need to pay the cost of your visit with a licensed physician. It’s important to note that health insurance does not cover these visits, as marijuana is still illegal on a federal level. Because of this, many physicians offer affordable pricing for these consultations. Elevate Holistics offers online appointments with Virginia medical marijuana doctors that start at $75.

How Do I Apply As A Caregiver?

There are some instances where medical marijuana patients may not be able to visit a dispensary themselves. For example, patients under the age of 21 legally cannot visit a dispensary and will need a parent or guardian to pick up the cannabis for them. There are also some medical conditions that would limit mobility and prevent the patient from getting to the dispensary.

In this case, you can apply to be a caregiver for the patient. You must be living at the same address as the patient in order to register as their caregiver. The patient will need to see and be approved by the doctor for medical marijuana. The registration process for caregivers online is very similar to the process of registering as a patient yourself.

Can I Grow My Own Marijuana in Virginia?

Many people wonder how to grow marijuana in Virginia now that it is legal for recreational use. You no longer need a specific grower’s license in Virginia to grow your own plants, but there are still some specific rules to keep in mind. How many plants can you grow with a marijuana card? Right now, you can grow up to four plants for personal use in your home, but they cannot be in public view and you cannot distribute them.

In order to grow medical marijuana at home, you will need to create an environment that your plants can thrive in. This means you may need to invest in climate control equipment and other helpful tools. However, if you’re using large quantities of marijuana, growing at home could be a good solution for you.

Virginia’s new medical marijuana laws are helping patients around the state get the treatment they need. Elevate Holistics is here to help you get your medical card from the comfort of your own home. Contact us today to schedule a secure, HIPAA-compliant appointment. We offer affordable pricing and our doctors can even help you find the products you need.

Medical Cannabis Certification for Virginia




Why Medical Marijuana Doctors are Necessary.

The vast majority of doctors don’t have a great understanding of cannabinoids due to a woefully archaic medical schooling system. In fact, most medical schools don’t even offer classes on the endocannabinoid system! This is the system in the body that interacts with THC, CBD, and other phytocannabinoids in cannabis. Crazy, right? While this is changing, the majority of doctors in America can’t truly point people in the right direction when it comes to cannabis as a medicine. This is where Elevate Holistics comes in by offering you a full staff of healthcare professionals that can take you from CBD to THC, to pharmaceutical interactions, and treatment plans. Make sure to ask your physician and Elevate staff anything on your mind so we can get you the resources you need to Elevate your health naturally.
