Schedule an appointment to see a doctor through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Consult with a doctor online for 10-15 mins to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. If you have medical records for your condition(s) please upload them.
Do not hesitate to reach out if you need assistance with getting an appointment set, our team would be more than happy to help.
After the doctor approves you, you will receive a "Patient ID." You'll use this number to register with the DC DOH to complete your application online or in person. Alternatively, you just go to your local dispensary and they'll help you complete the state application.
Every patient will need to prove DC residency for their application to be accepted by The District.
Once you are approved and registered with the DOH, you'll wait for your card to come in the mail in 2-3 weeks. You can then begin buying cannabis from any dispensary in DC.
Every DC patient will need to be re-certified annually by a licensed physician. Veriheal will get in touch with you when your certification is approaching its expiration to help you set up a renewal consultation.
