West Virginia Medical Marijuana Certification Process

The certification process in West Virginia is similar to many other medical states. Patients will need to obtain a Physician Written Certification Form from a registered medical marijuana doctor first in order to apply with the state for a medical card.

  • 1
    Schedule an appointment with a registered medical marijuana doctor.
  • 2
    Speak with the doctor to find out if you qualify.
  • 3
    Obtain your physician certification form and apply with the state.
  • 4
    Get your electronic medical marijuana ID card and start purchasing at dispensaries!

The majority of doctors in the state are not comfortable with certifying patients for the West Virginia medical marijuana program because marijuana remains illegal on a federal level. In addition, a doctor must be registered with the Department of Health and Human Resources in order to certify patients for the program.

For these reasons it can sometimes be difficult for patients to find a doctor who will certify them. We have three clinics located conveniently throughout the state to make the search quick and easy for patients. All of our doctors are registered with the state and can legally certify you for the program. If you think that you may have one of the state-approved "serious medical conditions" and have at least one form of proof, you will most likely qualify. Our doctor can evaluate you, review any medical documentation you are able to provide, and certify you for the program. Once certified, you will be able to apply with the state for your card so that you can begin purchasing at dispensaries as they begin to open.

The next step after being certified by a doctor is to register and apply online with the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. In order to register, patients will need to have: – a Signed Physician Written Certification Form – Two proofs of West Virginia residency. You will also be required to upload a passport size photo (from the shoulders up with a white background; no hats or glasses). This photo can be taken on any camera or cell phone and then cropped to the appropriate dimensions on the state website. If you're having trouble submitting your application to the state or any part of the registration process, we recommend contacting the state directly for support at 304-356-5090
