How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in HI

  • STEP 1:

    BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

    When we're booking appointments in Hawaii, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in AL 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 Hawaii, 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 Hawaii

Cannabis for recreational use is illegal in Hawaii. Possession is allowed for medical use only and remains a criminal offense otherwise. A common Hawaiian cannabis word is pakalolo (crazy tobacco), and the word appeared as soon as 1842 in the Hawaiian Ka Nonanona newspaper. Hawaii is renowned for its cannabis, which has developed many strains locally. Marijuana has been a component of Hawaiian culture for a long time, and some individuals are amazed that when it comes to legalizing marijuana, Hawaii does not lead the charge.

Medical marijuana patients are required to register electronically through a licensed caregiver with the State Department of Health (DOH). Registered medical cannabis patients and registered caregivers are allowed to grow up to four (4) ounces of usable cannabis, or 113.4 grams, and can grow up to ten (10) crops. Patients may appoint a caregiver to help with medical marijuana acquisition, cultivation and use. Patients and caregivers can make use of an affirmative action protection.

Qualifying Conditions

  • Cancer
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Lupus
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • A chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces one or more of the following:
    • Cachexia, or wasting syndrome

    • Seizures, including those characteristic of epilepsy
    • Severe nausea
    • Severe pain
    • Severe and persistent muscle spasms, including those characteristic of multiple sclerosis or Crohn’s disease

Application Process

Electronically, applications must be presented. Patients must first establish an eHawaii.gov account and then log in to the Medical Marijuana Registry of the DOH, which requires an internet request, accompanying papers and a $38.50 fee. In addition, a verified caregiver must certify the medical condition of the patient and send a request to the DOH.

Patients can buy medical cannabis from state-regulated clinics. Hawaiian state law sets working hours for dispensaries as 8 a.m. By 8 p.m. Monday to Sunday.

Types of marijuana available in dispensaries

You’ll see a number of distinct flower types classified by their types ranging from powerful Indias to powerful Sativas and all in between. Each strain can have distinct impacts, so be sure to ask the budtender to help you select the finest cannabis. Strong Sativas strains are known for their overall elevated impacts of uplifting, energizing and head, while Indicas are known for their complete body highs and sedative impacts.

Other kinds of marijuana products will also be sold by dispensaries, including but not restricted to:

  • Edibles: Cannabis has been infusing food, candy or beverages. Warning: It can be very powerful. Be sure to verify the size of the serving before you enjoy and remember that the impacts may take up to an hour to reach you.
  • Transdermal Products (Topicals): Creams, lotions, and cannabis-infused massage oils. These goods are not psychoactive and are not going to get you high.
  • Seeds: Seeds you can use to grow your own crops of marijuana. Stores are going to have many distinct Indicas and Sativas strains.
  • Clones: Healthy seedlings ready to grow.

The law states that medical marijuana dispensaries are not allowed to sell butane-processed dabs and waxes. You may only consume marijuana in a private residence.
