When we're booking appointments in Wyoming, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in WY 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.
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.
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 Wyoming, 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.
Wyoming has some of the strictest marijuana laws in the United States. Cannabis itself is not allowed for medical purposes, but a 2015 law allows limited use of non-psychoactive CBD oil.
Possession of under three ounces of cannabis is a misdemeanor that can be punished with up to a year in jail and a $1000 fine; possession of over three ounces is a felony.
Wyoming’s HB 32, establishes a registration process which allows a neurologist to recommend CBD cannabis extracts to a patient suffering from intractable epilepsy or seizure disorders.This law extends legal protections to some patients using some high CBD extractions. The law does not contain any provision for cultivation, production or distribution of cannabis and therefore forces patients to leave the state to legally acquire their medicine. The law only allows for extracts with greater than 5% CBD and less than 0.3% THC by weight.
The only patients eligible for this program are those with intractable epilepsy and seizure disorders. Minors are eligible for medical cannabis, though their parents or legal guardians must administer it.
Registering for protections under HB 32 requires that a patient (or a minor patient’s parent or legal guardian) complete an application and the patient’s neurologist complete two additional forms: a written certification and a patient evaluation record. A patient must also submit proof of residency and an application fee. After processing by the Department of Health the patient will be issued a Hemp Extract Registration card.
