Meet With a Medical Marijuana Doctor in Wyoming

Well, this is awkward.

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

How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in WY

1BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

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.

2CONSULT 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.

3GET 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 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.

The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Wyoming

There is no medical cannabis program in Wyoming, rather there is protection for patients who suffer from an intractable seizure disorder to use limited amounts of CBD and THC with a Hemp Extract Registration Card. The failure to move forward with any program gives the Cowboy State an F for effort as far as Americans for Safe Access (ASA) is concerned.

The Washington D.C.-based organization, which reports annually on the status of each U.S. state’s medical cannabis program, did however credit the region for approving HB171 in 2019, which grants approval for the 2018 Farm Bill, thus allowing a national hemp production program in the state. 

“Specifically, the bill yields oversight and rulemaking authority of Wyoming’s hemp production and regulation program to the U.S. Department of Food and Drug Administration,” reports ASA. 

Though Wyoming replaced a statewide pilot program with a solid federal policy, the state needs to do much more to raise its annual grade, reports the ASA.

“As Wyoming lawmakers look to 2021, ASA recommends organizing legislation to remove arbitrary caps on THC levels in authorized cannabis products to allow for more effective treatment, and entertain treatment of a larger population of patients with a diversity of health conditions,” reports the group.

Until Wyoming approves a medical cannabis program, thousands of patients who suffer from dozens of disorders proven to be relieved by the plant properties must seek relief some other way. 

Becoming a Patient in Wyoming

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.

Caregivers

Without a designated statewide program, there are no caregiver laws set up in Wyoming. 

Possession and Cultivation

There are no definitive possession laws regarding medical cannabis since the state of Wyoming does not have a program. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the state of Wyoming refer me to certified medical cannabis physicians?

No, the state does not offer any physician referrals, which is why Veriheal will set up shop in Wyoming when the state approves a medical cannabis program.

Veriheal will provide physicians for you once the state approves a program, which is the most difficult part of the process. After meeting with a certified doctor in a virtual video consultation from the comfort of your own home, the doctor will determine your eligibility based on a qualifying condition.

Places to Visit in Wyoming After Enjoying Your Medicine

Old Faithful and Grand Prismatic Spring are two reasons to visit Wyoming, the 10th most extensive and least densely populated state. Of course, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park offer geothermal sites that leave locals and visitors slack jaw. When not walking trails, hiking, or biking at Hot Springs State Park or Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, visitors ski down Grand Targhee, a spectacular Wyoming ski resort. For a city feel in the west, Jackson and Cheyenne are two tiny metropolitan areas filled with culture, history, and some of the best restaurants, bars, and clubs in the state. When Wyoming does pass a medical cannabis program with dispensaries around the state, it will be a great chance for locals to explore more of the great land they call home.

Old Faithful

A geothermal wonder, Old Faithful has been spewing forth every 44 minutes to two hours for the last 20 years. The consistent cascade sprouting from the earth is located in Yellowstone National Park. After seeing the site, exploring Yellowstone for a day or two is easy to do with many year-round activities available. Many hike the park’s canyon or raft and paddle down the lake when not watching grizzly bears in their natural habitat. The par offers rodeo and faux gunfights for an old western good time for those who like to sit back and relax.

Jackson

Home to the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson touts plenty of tourist sites among many local sweet spots. When feeling elevated, visiting Rendezvous Mountain is a great idea. Feeling less excited? Simply walk the Antelope Flats. The Laurance Rockefeller Preserve is also a popular spot to enjoy picking wildflowers and deer watching. Visiting downtown Jackson's famous antler archers is a great way to end the city's day, where eateries and entertainment are awaiting.

Wyoming Museum Tour

Whitney Western Art, Brinton, and Nicolaysen Art Museums are three galleries frequented by thousands of locals and visitors alike. For those who want to dive into the past, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West offers the opportunity. But most of all, the University of Wyoming Art Museum may very well provide the most culture under one roof, with ever changing exhibits.
