How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Missouri

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3

1BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

Schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in MO 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. Medical records will only be required for patients who have conditions that can only be determined from medical imaging and testing; otherwise, they are not required.

Our team is on standby waiting to help you get a consultation date set. Please do not hesitate to reach out.

2CONSULT WITH A MMJ DOCTOR

Consult with a doctor for 10-15 minutes to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. After the appointment is complete, and if you are approved, the doctor will complete an Electronic Certification through the state portal. The patient will then need to register and submit an online application to the state.

A typical medical cannabis prescription in Missouri is a dose of 6 ounces a month. If you need more, inform your physician who will use the Alternative Physician Certification Form, which needs to be completed by two different physicians for the same medical condition and same dosage amount. In addition, patients must be able to prove state residency to be eligible for a medical card.

3GET APPROVED

Once you are approved, you’ll register with the state and submit an application. It may take up to 30 days for your application to be reviewed. The state will process your application, notify you of your approval, and mail your card. Once approved, it is important that you register with the state within 30 days after getting certified. Once you have your card in hand, you can begin purchasing from dispensaries when they open in Missouri. Application fees are due at the time of application. The state will send you a confirmation email once your application has been submitted.

In Missouri, patients will need to re-certify their license every three years 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.

About Cannabis in Missouri

In recent Missouri cannabis news, Senate Bill 189 establishes expungement clinics to assist those in need with the process of seeking expungement for applicable criminal charges and convictions involving cannabis.

It’s been five years since Missourians voted to pass Amendment 2, authorizing the creation of a comprehensive medical cannabis program.

Under this program, medical marijuana patients can purchase up to 4 oz of medical cannabis every 30 days. A higher amount may be purchased if the qualified patient shows medical necessity.

Since 2018, Missouri’s cannabis industry has grown—for both medical and recreational use.

Missouri is one of the most recent states to have legalized adult-use cannabis. Though the program was established in August 2022, Show-Me State dispensaries began selling recreational marijuana in February 2023.

Qualifying Conditions for Cannabis Patients in Missouri

Missouri began its medical marijuana program in 2018 with a lengthy list of qualifying conditions, unlike some states that start with a short list and add more conditions as time goes on. According to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), qualifying medical conditions include: 

Missouri Medical Marijuana Program Requirements and Cost

Along with having a qualifying condition, applicants must provide proof of residency in Missouri with a valid state driver’s license or ID card. In addition to Veriheal’s consultation fee of $199, new patients must also complete the Missouri medical marijuana card application, which costs $25.94. This registration must be renewed annually to stay valid in the statewide registry. Recommendations on medical marijuana doses must also be renewed annually.

Registering a Primary Caregiver in Missouri

To be a caregiver for a Missouri resident, both the caregiver and medical patient must be able to provide proof of residency with a valid driver’s license or ID card. The caregiver also needs to be added to the patient’s medical cannabis certification application as the listed primary caregiver in order to be authorized to purchase and possess medical marijuana on the patient’s behalf. The cost of a caregiver application is $25.94. 

A patient may have up to two registered caregivers who are 21 or older and are residents of the state of Missouri. Caregivers are allowed to assist three patients at a time. Only legal guardians or parents may serve as a minor’s caregiver.

Either a patient or a caregiver (not both) may include an application for patient cultivation unless the patient is a minor. If they are, they cannot apply for cultivation. If patient cultivation is desired, it must be included in your initial application for a medical marijuana license.
