Virginians, Here’s How You Can Access Medical Cannabis
Virginia lawmakers gave a tiny fraction of patients access to medical marijuana in 2015 and 2017, but it wasn’t until 2018 that the state gave decision-making power directly to doctors. Reforms in 2019 and 2020 further expanded the scope of the state’s medical marijuana program, making access to holistic healing possible for even more patients.
When you register with TeleLeaf, your discretion, security, and privacy is our top priority. All information and transactions remain securely stored in our HIPAA compliant EMR platform, and you will only be billed if you are approved. Fill out our simple online intake form to schedule an appointment with one of our compassionate physicians.
Connect with one of our licensed doctors from the convenience and privacy of your own home. Regardless of your previous experience with medical marijuana, our doctors will work with you to ensure you find the holistic healing that’s right for you.
If you qualify, our doctors will set you up with a Written Certification for Medical Cannabis. This virtual certification—and your government-issued ID—is all you need to purchase medical marijuana from any Virginia dispensary. If you would like a physical medical marijuana card, you can order one through the mail for $50.

When it comes to qualifying conditions, the State of Virginia gives full discretion to its licensed physicians. If a doctor believes medical cannabis will treat or alleviate the symptoms of your condition, they can prescribe it to you.
At TeleLeaf, we believe holistic healing through medical marijuana starts with access—access to knowledgeable doctors, quality suppliers, affordable medicine, patient support, and more. And you just won’t find that with other services.

When your doctor provides you with a Written Certification for the Use of Medical Cannabis, it remains valid for a year. You will have to obtain a new certification each year to continue taking advantage of Virginia’s Medical Marijuana Program.
The good news is that the state no longer requires registration with the Department of Health, so this is the only step you have to take to remain in the program.
Pricing is dependent on the type of product you purchase, as well as its potency. The best way to determine your exact costs is to contact the dispensary in your Health Service Area or visit their website:
Patients can purchase a 90-day supply of medical marijuana. Because every condition is different, your pharmacist will determine what constitutes a 90-day supply for you.
With that said, patients cannot purchase more than four ounces of botanical cannabis in a 30-day period. Any dispensed botanical cannabis is calculated into your total 90-day supply of medical cannabis products.
To learn more about your patient rights, see the resource page of the Virginia Department of Health Professions.
How long will it take for the Department of Health to approve my application?
As of July 1, 2022, medical cannabis patients, parents, and legal guardians are no longer required to register with the VA Board of Pharmacy/Department of Health. This means that once a registered practitioner supplies you with a Written Certification for the Use of Medical Cannabis, you can purchase medical marijuana from any dispensary in the state.
