MEDICAL MARIJUANA DOCTORS HELPING MISSOURI PATIENTS
IN-OFFICE VISIT (Coming Soon)
OUR COMPANY MANTRA IS SIMPLE. PATIENTS FIRST.
Meet The Doctor
My philosophy as a physician is to listen to my patients and educate them about current medical knowledge so they can make personal, informed decisions about their healthcare. Being diagnosed with a “qualifying condition” myself, I have an enthusiastic interest in the potential benefits of medical marijuana. In contrast to prescription medications, medical marijuana is a personally flexible option for appropriate patients to discover what may benefit their own unique medical condition.

HOW DO I GET APPROVED FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA
1. Gather Your Medical Records
Before you can see a marijuana doctor you will want to gather your medical records for your qualifying condition. You can either ask your primary care physician for a copy, or ask us to obtain them for you. If you would like us to obtain your medical records for you, just call, text, or email us and we will be glad to help!
2. Get Certified
Once you have your medical records you are ready to be evaluated by a physician. Preferably by a doctor who specializes in medical marijuana, like ours! They will review your medical history and certify that your medical condition qualifies under the rules set by the Department of Health and Senior Services. You don’t need your all of your medical records, some patients have crates of records. All you need is a diagnosis report, visit notes, or lab reports showing diagnosis or treatment of the medical condition. Any prescriptions you may be taking are also helpful to bring to your appointment. The idea is to take less pharmaceuticals and try a more natural approach.
One of our doctors will also talk to you about whether medical marijuana might be a better or healthier alternative to help you find relief from certain conditions and any potential risks associated with adding cannabis to your treatment plan.
Feel free to bring up any questions or concerns you may have about medical marijuana during your appointment with our doctors. They are there to help educate patients and help you get the most out of your treatment.
3. Upload Your Cert to the DHSS Patient Registry Website
At this point you should have your Physician’s Certification Form, if you’ve been approved. But that’s not the end. This does NOT mean you are legal to use cannabis. You still have to apply on the state’s Patient Registry website. Fortunately, this is something we can help you with as well with our Application Assistance services if you like.
Most of the information they are going to ask for is just basic information, however, there are a few things to pay attention to. But don’t worry, even if you accidentally mess something up, they will give you 30 days to correct your application and resubmit.
The key thing to remember is that everything from this point on is online. The state isn’t even issuing actual cards, it’s just a pdf you download once your approved. There is no state office to go to and there is no mailing address you can send your application to. You will have to create an account on Missouri’s Patient Registry website and keep an eye on your email; that’s where they will send any updates to your account. You can find the DHSS Patient Registry website HERE. https://mo-public.mycomplia.com/
The first email you get will ask you to verify your account to activate it. You can then go login to your account and start the application process. DHSS put together a great Patient Registry Users Guide to walk you through the application process, which can be found HERE. https://health.mo.gov/safety/medical-marijuana/pdf/patient-registry-user-guide.pdf
To get started, simply click the Book Appointment button and get certified!
Have more questions about Missouri’s medical marijuana program? We put together some useful information to help
To get your Medical marijuana card from the State of Missouri, first thing to know is that you must be a Missouri resident, have a “qualifying condition” as defined by Missouri state law, and see a Missouri licensed physician to obtain Physician Certification.
For more information and instructions on how to apply through the DHSS Patient Registry Portal check out: https://health.mo.gov/safety/medical-marijuana/how-to-apply-pi.php
Once you have submitted your paperwork to the state’s patient registry website, you will receive an email either approving you or denying your application normally within 2 weeks. Once you have your medical marijuana card (valid for one year), you will then be able to purchase cannabis products at a dispensary or for an extra fee you can cultivate and grow up to 6 flowering plants.
The dispensaries will have many different strains and modes of delivery available. The budtenders at the dispensaries can be a valuable source of information, but it is best to do some of your own research ahead of time. Once you start, it is a good idea to keep a journal so you can track what strains and combinations worked or did not work for you.
State law limits the amount of cannabis product you can purchase to 4 ounces of dried flower, or its equivalent in concentrates or edibles, every 30 days. Explanation of monthly purchase limits, Missouri Marijuana Equivalency Units (MMEs): https://health.mo.gov/safety/medical-marijuana/pdf/mm-quivalency-units.pdf
At Kind Remedy Cannabis, we realize that some patients are already experienced and knowledgeable users, and may not require or desire any further follow up. For new or inexperienced users, we want set ourselves apart from other “rubber stamp” certification businesses and offer the opportunity for ongoing evaluation and guidance. We are currently working on that practice model and will update the website as soon as that is developed.
