Medical Cannabis Card Q & A

What is a medical cannabis card?

A medical cannabis card is a form of identification that allows you to enter medical cannabis dispensaries. If you have a medical cannabis card, you can purchase marijuana products to treat specific health problems or symptoms. It also allows you to grow a certain amount of cannabis at home. 

Who qualifies for a medical cannabis card?

To qualify for a medical cannabis card, you must:

  • Be diagnosed with a condition that will benefit from treatment with medical marijuana
  • Get a recommendation from a licensed physician
  • Have proof of residency
  • Receive written consent from a parent or guardian (if you’re under 18)

At Weight Loss and Vitality, the team provides medical cannabis card consultations on-site and through telemedicine in Virginia. The process is easy and hassle-free and typically takes less than 45 minutes.

What happens during a medical cannabis card consultation?

At Weight Loss and Vitality, a medical cannabis card consultation begins with a review of your medical history. Afterward, the team asks about your symptoms and conducts a comprehensive physical. Usually, these measures are enough to make a determination, but the team might also order laboratory tests like blood work or urinalysis.

After pinpointing the source of your discomfort, the team can make treatment recommendations. If you’re living with a condition that falls under medical marijuana guidelines, they then fill out the necessary paperwork to receive a medical cannabis card.

What conditions can benefit from a medical cannabis card?

The most common conditions treated with a medical cannabis card include, but are not limited to:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Chronic pain
  • Epilepsy
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Sickle-cell anemia
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Tourette’s syndrome

You might also benefit from a medical cannabis card if you’re living with fibromyalgia, glaucoma, or hepatitis C.

How is medical cannabis consumed?

Medical cannabis comes in a variety of forms, including edibles, topical ointments, and salves. You also have the option to smoke or vape the flower itself. After you receive your card, you can visit any medical marijuana dispensary in the state of Virginia. The professionals at the dispensary can make recommendations that align with your needs.
