Getting a Missouri medical marijuana card is a process that involves speaking with a doctor and filling out some quick online state paperwork. To become an Missouri medical marijuana patient, you can first talk with one of our doctors (100% online via secure video chat) to see if you qualify and we will help you through the application process.
Before you begin the process, it is first important to understand if you have a qualifying condition for a medical marijuana card. Here are some conditions that may qualify you for the program:
- In the professional judgment of a physician, any chronic, debilitating or other medical condition (including, but not limited to, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, Huntington’s disease, autism, neuropathies, sickle cell anemia, agitation of Alzheimer’s disease, cachexia, and wasting syndrome)
- A chronic medical condition that causes severe, persistent pain or persistent muscle spasms, including but not limited to those associated with multiple sclerosis, seizures, Parkinson’s disease, and Tourette’s syndrome
- Debilitating psychiatric disorders, including, but not limited to, post-traumatic stress order, if diagnosed by a state licensed psychiatrist
- A chronic medical condition that is normally treated with a prescription medication that could lead to physical or psychological dependence, when a physician determines that medical use of marijuana could be effective in treating that condition and would serve as a safer alternative to the prescription medication
- Intractable migraines unresponsive to other treatment
- Human immunodeficiency virus or acquired immune deficiency syndrome
- A terminal illness
When registering with the state after your appointment, you’ll need to provide one of the following items to show proof of Missouri residency:
- Missouri Drivers License

Missouri State Recommendation
The state of Missouri does not mail out physical cards out to qualified/registered patients. Once approved by the state, the patient receives an email notification with instructions to log into the registration system to access their digital medical marijuana card. This card can be printed, or saved to their electronic device.
When visiting a dispensary – you would need to bring your digital card (either on your device or printed) as well as a form of identification.
