Step 2

Consult With An MMJ Doctor

During a 10-15 minute consultation with your doctor, you can gain an understanding of your medical condition, as well as ask any questions that you might have regarding the use of medical marijuana. You will be given a recommendation form by the doctor following your appointment to apply for medical marijuana approval after the appointment is completed.

For every patient’s application to be accepted by the state of Virginia, it must be accompanied by proof of Virginia residency.

Step 3

Get Approved

As soon as your application for medical marijuana has been approved, you must obtain a letter of approval from your registered marijuana practitioner to access the medicine at the medical cannabis dispensary. The Virginia Board of Pharmacy no longer requires pharmacists to register to practice.


According to the law of Virginia, as part of the re-certification process, patients must see a licensed physician every year to renew their license. If you are approaching the expiration date of your certification, KIF will be in touch with you to arrange an appointment for you to arrange for the renewal of your certification.

Cannabis Legalization in VA

Before COVID-19, Virginia had one of the most restrictive cannabis laws in the U.S., and their program was one of the most restricted across the board. As previously mentioned, the state decriminalized small amounts of cannabis as early as 1995, with a fine of $25 being the lowest fine that could be imposed on residents. However, it still had limited circumstances where cannabis could be consumed. Those days are gone. Now, a physician can widen that list after obtaining a diagnosis and approval.

Under SB 1557, physicians assistants and nurses can now issue written certifications allowing patients to receive cannabidiol oil or THC-A oil under the medical cannabis program, and according to the bill, “the Board must promulgate regulations establishing dosage limitations, which require that no more than 10 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol shall be dispensed per dose.”

As a result of a vote in the state house that took place on April 7, 2021, the state house decided to expunge criminal records for misdemeanors automatically. This act allows VA residents convicted of marijuana possession, as well as charges made against them for underage possession of alcohol and tobacco, to have their criminal records expunged with the police and state. Upon enacting this new law, cannabis possession charges should automatically be revoked by July 1, 2026, and this process is scheduled to be implemented on July 1, 2022. On January 1, 2024, Virginia will become the first state to legalize the sale, cultivation, and manufacture of retail marijuana.

As a result of two pieces of legislation signed by Governor Youngkin in April 2022-HB 933 and SB 671-the obligation for patients of medical marijuana to register with the Board of Pharmacy after receiving a written certification from a licensed practitioner has been eliminated.

Qualifying Conditions for Virginia Medical Marijuana Cards

Since the beginning of 2019, doctors and certain medical assistants have been allowed to diagnose and prescribe CBD and THC-infused oils to patients. There have been positive changes since the list of conditions that can be relieved by medical cannabis widened, so patients suffering from several ailments can now get the relief they need. Patients who are seeking medical marijuana cards are most commonly seeking them because of the following conditions: Anxiety


Chronic pain


Muscle spasms

Rheumatoid arthritis



Virginia's report explicitly notes three additional conditions considered for relief: chemotherapy, seizures, and depression. Besides showing that they have a diagnosable condition, a patient must also show that they reside in Virginia by having a valid driver’s license or state identification card that shows they are a Virginia resident.

Registering as a Caregiver in VA

Obtaining approval for a Virginia caregiver depends on whether the patient, who has been registered with the state, has designated the caregiver as an assistant. A caregiver named by the family must be able to show they are a resident of Virginia and possess a valid driver's license or state identification card as proof of their identity.

In the case of a caregiver applying to provide care for a minor, they must attach a copy of the patient's birth certificate to their application to prove that the patient is a minor. You can only register two patients simultaneously to assist them as a caregiver. A $25 registration fee will be charged to you as a parent or legal guardian when you apply to register a minor.

It will then be possible for the caregiver to purchase medicinal cannabis on behalf of the patient once they have been approved.
