How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in WI

Step1: Book an appointment

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

Cannabis in Wisconsin is illegal with the exception of non-psychoactive medical CBD oil. Various fines and prison terms apply to cannabis possession, sale, or cultivation.[1] CBD oil was legalized in 2014, but under tight controls and for a very limited number of conditions, primarily seizures.

Wisconsin’s first medical cannabis law (AB 726) took effect in 2014, protecting an extremely narrow class of people. Otherwise known as a CBD-only bill, patients must be diagnosed with a seizure disorder to receive legal protection and may only possess forms of cannabis that do not produce psychoactive effects.

On April 17, 2017, Gov. Scott Walker signed Act 4, which expands the state’s existing limited medical cannabis law, Lydia’s law, enacted in 2014. The original law allowed patients with documentation of a seizure disorder to possess CBD treatments, but it did not legalize the production of CBD products in the state. Act 4 expands the program to protect all patients who possess CBD and have a letter from their physician. Unfortunately, it remains illegal to produce or distribute CBD products.

 

Becoming a Patient in Wisconsin

In 2014, Wisconsin passed AB 726, which creates a legal right for patients with seizure disorders to possess and use CBD-rich medicines if they have a written recommendation.

The law allows medical practitioners to dispense CBD but provides no clear guidance on how they may obtain it, nor does the law address production or distribution. The law only removes criminal penalties for CBD and does not authorize the possession or use of THC in any quantity.

Nearly all CBD-rich products have at least some amount of THC, making the production of qualifying medicine practically impossible.

Eligible Conditions

The only eligible condition at the moment in Wisconsin is seizure disorders.

Application Process

There is no application process to become a patient under AB 726. A physician’s written recommendation is all that necessary for a patient to be legally allowed to possess and administer CBD products under AB 726; however, there is no clear way for patients to obtain such products.

Where is it safe to purchase and consume?

For patients, a Controlled Substances Board-approved pharmacy or doctor may recommend CBD oil to treat a medical condition.

The law expands a patient’s usage beyond seizure disorders, stating that individuals with a “medical condition” can possess and consume CBD  oil. The law, however, is vague on what medical condition qualify. They may obtain certification from a doctor stating that the patient possesses CBD oil for treatment and that the CBD oil has no intoxicating effect on patients.

Qualifying Patients

  • Must have a letter from a physician
  • May only possess forms of cannabis that do not produce a psychoactive effect

Marijuana possession and sale (and sometimes home cultivation) is legal in a growing number of states, first in Colorado and Washington. In some states, like Wisconsin, it is becoming permissible to allow the medicinal use of cannabis. While state law technically permits the use of medicinal marijuana in Wisconsin, the statute is very limited. The only use of cannabidiol in a form without a psychoactive effect is allowed, and only to treat a seizure disorder.

Places to Visit in WI After Enjoying Your Medicine

Wisconsin is home to hundreds of miles of scenic Great Lakes shoreline along Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, along with a picturesque mountainous interior that is dotted with dozens of state parks where adventure lovers can have the time of their lives. If you prefer the arts and culture scene, you will find it in the state’s bustling cities of Milwaukee and Madison, the state capital.

Milwaukee

Milwaukee is full of interesting and educational attractions to keep you busy every hour of the day. You can start off by combining fun and education on a visit to the Milwaukee Public Museum, Discovery World and the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum. Art lovers can feast their eyes on the wonderful collections at the Milwaukee Art Museum, MOWA (Museum of Wisconsin Art), and the expansive 40-acre Lynden Sculpture Garden before catching a Broadway show at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts or attending the Milwaukee Ballet or the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. Outdoor enthusiasts can hike the Lakefront Trail, go paddling with Milwaukee Kayak Company or simply enjoy Bradford Beach. Anyone interested in motorbikes will not want to miss a tour of the Harley Davidson Museum.

Madison

The majestic State Capitol building seems like a fitting place to start your visit to Madison, the capital of Wisconsin. The imposing granite structure is boldly situated between two lakes and daily guided tours are available. There is a lengthy list of city attractions you can explore including the State Historical Museum, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, the Chazen Museum of Art and the hands-on Madison Children’s Museum. The performing arts are thriving in Madison and you can get your fill at the Bartell Theatre or Wisconsin Union Theatre, among others. Other interesting activities to try include campus tours of the University of Wisconsin, visiting Olbrich Botanical Gardens, boating and paddling on the five lakes around the city and biking the extensive network of cycling trails.

Lake Geneva

The beautiful lake-side town of Lake Geneva ticks all the boxes when it comes to finding an idyllic year-round vacation destination in southern Wisconsin. Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy beaches, paddle-boarding, jet-skiing, and parasailing, while those who like to keep their feet dry can go on a cruise to enjoy the beauty of the lake. Back on land you can explore miles of hiking and biking trails including the scenic Shore Path, try zip-lining or a hot-air balloon trip, and tour historic Black Point Estate and Gardens. The historic Downtown is the place to go for shopping and dining, and when the winter snows arrive you can go skiing, snowshoeing, snowboarding, ice skating, and sledding before treating yourself to a pamper session at one of the many day spas.
