Meet With a Medical Marijuana Doctor in Delaware

Well, this is awkward.

It looks like Veriheal doctors are not currently helping patients in Delaware to get their medical marijuana cards. However, you can take advantage of our Personalized Consults as an Alabama resident to better understand cannabis.

How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in DE

  • STEP 1:

    BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

    When we're booking appointments in Delaware, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in DE 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. You will need medical records and the doctor(s) can approve any qualifying condition.

  • STEP 2:

    CONSULT WITH AN MMJ DOCTOR

    Consult with a doctor for 15 mins 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. Once you have this you can then use that to apply to the state.

  • STEP 3:

    GET APPROVED

    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 Delaware, 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.

    Until the program is live, you can join the Veriheal tribe above to gain access to our large network of offerings that are presently available to you.

The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Delaware

In order to participate in the Delaware Medical Marijuana Program, you must be a Delaware resident and have a qualifying medical condition. Patients diagnosed with any of the following conditions are eligible to participate:

  • Cancer
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • HIV and AIDS
  • Decompensated cirrhosis
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Agitation of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Autism with aggressive or self-injurious behavior
  • Intractable epilepsy
  • Physical manifestations of post-traumatic stress disorder

Patients can also qualify for a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces one or more of the following:

  • Cachexia or wasting syndrome
  • Severe, debilitating pain that has not responded to previously prescribed medication or surgical measure for more than three months, or for which other treatment options produced serious side effects.
  • Intractable nausea
  • Seizures
  • Severe and persistent muscle spasms, including but not limited to those characteristics of Multiple Sclerosis

If you’ve determined that you meet the criteria for the program, the next step is to complete and submit a patient application to Delaware Health and Social Services. The application form is available online here, but please note that all applications must be submitted by mail. The main sections of the application are as follows:

Patient Information: This includes basic contact and demographic information for the patient, along with an attestation that you agree to follow the rules of the program.

Physician Certification: This section must be completed by your physician. It confirms that they are licensed to practice medicine in Delaware and that they’ve fully evaluated your medical condition.

Patient Release Request: This authorizes Delaware Health and Social Services to contact your doctor for the purposes of verifying the information provided in your application.

Proof of Residency: You must include a legible copy of your Delaware Driver’s License or State-issued ID card.

Application Fee: A required processing fee of $125 is payable by check or money order.

Once your patient application is fully prepared, please carefully review to ensure that all information is accurate and complete before submitting. Any errors or omissions could result in your application being denied and will delay the process of obtaining your medical marijuana card. If your application is approved, your card will be issued to you by mail.

Note: An alternate application form for pediatric patients is available here. Also, our Delaware registered doctor sees patients in Philadelphia, so please plan accordingly.

*Disclaimer – In Delaware, medical records ARE required to show proof of an existing condition that is a qualifying condition of the state.
