Meet With a Medical Marijuana Doctor in Kentucky

Well, this is awkward.

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

How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in KY

  • STEP 1:

    BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

    When we're booking appointments in Kentucky, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in KY 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 Kentucky, 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 set up 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 Kentucky

Cannabis is illegal for use as a medicine in Kentucky, USA, although non-psychoactive CBD oil is legal in the state, and since 1775 Kentucky has a long history of fiber cultivation. In April 2014, Governor Steve Beshear signed a law allowing patients to use non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) derivatives with a suggestion from a physician for the therapy of epilepsy in clinical trials at the University of Kentucky, but the law did not include provisions for the legal production or sale of CBD.

While a law enabling patients to have access to cannabidiol (or “CBD,” a non-psychoactive component of cannabis) in medicinal instances was adopted in April 2014, availability or use is not anticipated to raise. Although other countries have modified their drug laws to allow the legalization and decriminalization of cannabis, possession, and sale of marijuana is still a crime in Kentucky, with some rates of possession being a crime under state law.

The Republican from Louisville has co-sponsored a bill he thinks addresses most of the previous medical marijuana issues. Nemes, Kentucky State Representative, has attempted to assure fellow legislators that his bill includes tight constraints on medical cannabis, regulating its use, development, and sale. He said his bill would set up a fresh Cannabis Administration Department to regulate medical marijuana.

The proposed regulations include:

  • Requiring customers to acquire a license and to carry a card.
  • Only prescriptions from doctors who have registered with the state.
  • It is necessary to license processors and retailers.
  • No government or public estate smoking.
  • No marketing that appeals to kids

The bill would also include an opt-out provision that would allow communities to ban dispensaries and dealers of marijuana, although residents would still be permitted to use cannabis at home.
