Meet With a Medical Marijuana Doctor in South Dakota

Well, this is awkward.

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


How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in SD

  • STEP 1:


    When we're booking appointments in South Dakota, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in SD 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 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:


    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 South Dakota, 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.

The Status of Cannabis Legalization in SD

Cannabis in South Dakota is illegal for all purposes, and possession of small amounts is a misdemeanor crime. South Dakota is the only U.S. state which outlaws the ingestion of controlled substances. Testing positive for cannabis can be a felony offense.

The South Dakota Medical Marijuana Initiative was not on the ballot in South Dakota as an initiated state statute on November 6, 2018. The measure would have legalized marijuana for medical purposes. Patients would have been able to receive medical marijuana for certain debilitating medical conditions under the measure. The South Dakota Department of Health would have been responsible for regulating medical marijuana if the initiative had reached the ballot and passed.

The initiative was designed to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. Patients would have been able to receive medical marijuana for certain debilitating medical conditions. Debilitating medical conditions would have included the following:

  • Cancer
  • Glaucoma
  • HIV
  • Endometriosis
  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy
  • Epilepsy
  • AIDS
  • Hepatitis C
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Agitation of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

A chronic or medical condition that produces any of the following symptoms would also have been considered a debilitating medical condition:

  • Cachexia or wasting syndrome
  • Severe debilitating pain
  • Severe nausea
  • Seizures or severe and persistent muscle spasms including those characteristics of multiple sclerosis

Additionally, any resident of South Dakota would have been able to petition the department of health to add a serious medical condition or treatment to the list of qualifying medical conditions. The department would have been required to approve or deny a petition within 180 days.
