When you make an appointment with West Virginia Marijuana Card, what you are doing is scheduling a medical marijuana evaluation. This is basically like an easy interview to see if you qualify to get your medical marijuana card in the state.
West Virginia, like many states, has a specific list of medical conditions that a person needs to be diagnosed with in order to qualify for medical marijuana treatment. So when you come to your evaluation, our certified doctors will be reviewing your medical history and making sure that you have a diagnosis of a qualifying condition.
Here is a list of the conditions that qualify for medical marijuana treatment in West Virginia:
Whichever condition you have of the list above will be what is discussed in your medical marijuana evaluation. The evaluation is not super long and usually lasts around 30 minutes.
There is no reason to be worried or stressed about your evaluation. If for some reason our doctor cannot confirm your condition, we will provide guidance for you on what you will need to qualify and ultimately refund your appointment cost if not approved.
There is some exciting news on the horizon that could open the door for more qualifying conditions in West Virginia! West Virginia may become what we call an “all conditions” state. This means that any and all medical conditions could qualify you for medical marijuana treatment. This is great because it makes the program more inclusive to many different conditions that people are suffering with!
The state medical cannabis advisory board met to discuss expanding the program and we will know soon if all conditions are approved or not.
How do I get my medical marijuana card?
So now that you have booked and attended your evaluation, here are the next steps.
The doctor's signed certification, with the aid of our physician support staff, will then be used as the official identification document for qualifying patients to utilize medical marijuana treatment.
