Well, this is awkward.

It looks like we are not currently helping patients in Colorado to get their medical marijuana cards. However, you can take advantage of our Personalized Consults as a Colorado resident to better understand how cannabis and cbd may be helpful to you.


How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Colorado

  • STEP 1:


    Schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in CO through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Provide basic medical history and book your appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. If you have medical records for your condition(s) please provide them.

    *At this time medical records are required indicating that you have one of the qualifying conditions. Do not hesitate to reach out if you need assistance with getting an appointment set, our team would be more than happy to help.

  • STEP 2:


    Consult with a doctor in person for 10-15 minutes to evaluate your ailments and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. After the appointment is complete, the doctor will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana and approve you for legal cannabis use. Once you have this you can then use that to apply to the state.

    Every patient will need to prove Colorado residency for their application to be accepted by the state of CO.

  • STEP 3:


    Once you are approved, you'll register with the state and submit an application. The state will process your application and notify you of your approval and mail your card. Once you have your card in hand, you can begin purchasing from dispensaries.

    In Colorado, patients will need to re-certify their license annually by seeing a licensed physician again. Veriheal will get in touch with you when your certification is approaching its expiration to help you setup a renewal consultation.

About Cannabis in Colorado

On November 6, 2012, electors endorsed the Colorado Marijuana Legalization Amendment, also known as Amendment 64, passing 55.3 percent of the vote. Amendment 64 legalized recreational cannabis for adolescents aged 21 and over and imposed taxes on sales and farming. Before Amendment 64 was approved, cannabis possession or use was reserved for qualifying patients and their caregivers.

Adults 21 and older may have up to one ounce (1 oz) or 28.5 grams of dry cannabis or cannabis-infused products and 8 grams of concentrate of marijuana. Qualifying patients and their caregivers may have up to two ounces (2 oz) or 57 grams of cannabis that can be used legally. Adults, qualified patients and their caregivers may develop or possess up to six (6) crops each, with three (3) flowering crops and a total of twelve residential estate crops.

The Colorado Medical Marijuana Registry is a national program that enables patients with qualified medical circumstances to obtain a legal access to medical marijuana registry identification card. Colorado residents only have registry ID cards accessible and must be renewed annually. A state-authorized ID card was created by the Colorado Medical Marijuana Registry, together with an internet database used to monitor and check skilled patients and their caregivers. Patients and caregivers must apply for a registration card on their own. Minors must apply to a parent or legal guardian, and two caregivers must be appointed.

Qualifying Conditions

  • Cachexia, or wasting syndrome
  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • Persistent muscle spasms
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • PTSD diagnoses for minors carry specific requirements to qualify.
  • Seizures
  • Severe nausea
  • Severe pain

Application Process

1. Obtain a physician’s recommendation.
2. Submit a valid Colorado driver’s license or ID to establish residency.
3. Designate a caregiver and submit a valid caregiver’s registration ID, if applicable.
4. Designate cultivation status.
5. Pay a $25 Medical Marijuana Registry Identification card fee.

Who Can Qualify as a Primary Caregiver?

In order to transport or develop cannabis on behalf of a patient, caregivers are needed to register annually with the CDOR Caregivers Registry. Caregivers must be a permanent resident of Colorado at least 18 years of age. One of these four designations can be followed by caregivers:

  • Growing cannabis on behalf of patients
  • Transportation: carries marijuana for patients who are homebound or minor.
  • A minor patient’s parents: a patient’s parents or legal guardians under 18.
  • Advice: Advise patients on marijuana medicinal use.

Possession and Cultivation Limits in Colorado

Possession / Use Limits: Adults 21 years of age may have one ounce (1 oz) or 28.5 grams of dry cannabis or cannabis-infused goods and 8 grams of marijuana concentrate.

Caregivers must provide the place and registration number of each patient they serve for each cannabis cultivation site. Those plants and their corresponding patient registration numbers must be registered with the CDOR if any patient qualifies for an extended plant count. The particular regulations of agriculture and the counts of patient plants differ from town to county. Parent caregivers who grow less than 36 plants, however, are not required to register with the Caregivers Registry.

The medical use of marijuana by a patient is permissible within the following boundaries: no more than two (2) ounces of a usable form of marijuana ; no more than six (6) plants, three (3) or less mature, flowering crops producing a usable form of marijuana.

Growing Limits: Any adult Colorado resident may develop up to six (6) crops per individual at any moment, with no more than three (3) crops in the mature / flowering phase. Residents of non-Colorado may not grow cannabis.

No more than twelve (12) complete crops per residence are permitted irrespective of the amount of adults residing there. Cannabis crops must be kept out of sight in an enclosed, closed region. It is not possible to sell homegrown marijuana to others.

Places to Visit in Colorado After Enjoying Your Medicine

Outdoor adventurers, skiers, nature enthusiasts and history are looking forward to year after year returning to Colorado for memorable holidays encircled by amazing landscapes.

The state is packed around every curve with pictures worthy of Instagram, from the northern front range to the southern valley. But as the bright stars, a few places stand out. These are the types of locations that take away your breath. They seem so amazing, unlikely otherworldly. Here are Colorado’s best places to visit.

Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs is located at an elevation of more than 6,000 feet at the eastern foot of the Rocky Mountains and is a springboard for some of the best hiking trails in Colorado as well as many other outdoor activities. White water rafting in the Royal Gorge, hiking in the beautiful Garden of the Gods Park or cycling the Barr Trail are just a few of the energetic activities you can try.

You can enjoy a wildlife viewing place in some of the neighboring parks or turn your attention to historical and cultural attractions such as the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and the Cripple Creek Heritage Museum. Art enthusiasts can enjoy exciting art walks or check out the Fine Art Center in Colorado Springs.

Garden of the Gods

The Garden of the Gods is a National Natural Landmark in Colorado Springs and one of Colorado’s most incredible locations for its towering rock formations that seem to defy physics. During the earthquake that created the Rocky Mountains and neighboring Pikes Peak, these monstrous red rocks placed along a fault line were actually uprooted and thrown around.

What remains today is a free, 1,367-acre park with paths winding between a natural attraction like no other on Earth, with towers, rocks, spires and rocks resembling fun forms like kissing camels and praying hands. It’s no surprise that in the Pikes Peak area the Garden of the Gods is the most visited attraction.

The Cave of the Winds, notable, 500 million-year-old, subterranean, naturally occurring caves, is also picturesque nearby. You can walk through these caves and below Colorado Springs ; the view is incredible, although there is not so much photo opportunity in this dark globe.

The Million Dollar Highway

In the southeastern region of Colorado near Ouray there are so many incredible points to visit that it is difficult to narrow it down. Fortunately, many of them cross this one highway. The Million Dollar Highway is one of Colorado’s most lovely road rides; it provides your buck tons of photographic-worthy bang, all without getting out of your vehicle.

Only about 25 miles long (winding, hairpin miles), but there’s so much to see along the manner.

Stop in Silverton’s historic mining town, which is still busy today, and look at the colorful downtown Victorian buildings.

Then visit a ghost city: Animas Forks used to be a mining city as well, but it was forgotten after the gold rush died down. It has to be accessed via a four-wheel drive, but if you don’t mind the little diversion, a mountain ghost town is a quintessential tourist stop in Colorado. See deserted shacks of wood and the echo of a past time.

The Million Dollar Highway also takes you past old hot springs, such as the Trimble Spa (which has a history dating back to the individuals of Ancient Pueblo in 1000) ; the San Juan National Forest (1.8 million acres for outdoor adventure) ; Ouray’s charming, tiny village (located in a circular valley with various hot springs) ; and the Box Canyon waterfall (285 feet high).
