You must consult with a doctor on the West Virginia Office of Medical Cannabis’ approved list of physicians (Note: These physicians had to complete mandatory training on cannabis). The majority of regular physicians have not received additional medical marijuana training.Before being certified for MMJ in West Virginia, patients must have at least a 6-month relationship with their physician.

Step 3: Registering your West Virginia Medical Marijuana with the Office of Medical Cannabis.

Once the doctor has approved you, you must submit your application along with the signed certification. Please keep in mind that your doctor will continue to monitor your condition to determine whether you still need to use cannabis. If he determines that you do not, he must notify the West Virginia OMC and state that you no longer require medical marijuana to treat your condition.

When providing you with the certification, your physician must inform the Bureau that you are likely to benefit from the use of medical marijuana for palliative or therapeutic purposes. They must also state that treatments for your condition, such as the use of opioids, have proven ineffective.
