What conditions qualify me for a medical marijuana card in Virginia?

In Virginia, several specific medical conditions may qualify you for a medical marijuana certificate and card, including:

  • Cancer
  • Chronic Pain that does not respond to traditional treatments or where opioids may be considered
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with moderate to severe symptoms

Additionally, physicians in Virginia have the flexibility to recommend medical cannabis for any condition they deem appropriate. However, they must provide a justification for their recommendation, explaining why medical cannabis is suitable for the patient’s specific condition. This allows for a broader application of medical marijuana treatment tailored to individual patient needs.
