Your first step is getting your medical card.
Medical marijuana is legal in Missouri, but only for those who have a valid medical marijuana card. It’s easy to qualify for medical marijuana in Missouri! All you have to do is schedule an appointment with a marijuana doctor online by CLICKING HERE or calling (877) 303-3117 to talk to a patient support representative.
During your meeting, a member of our medical staff will take you through a quick and easy evaluation to see if you qualify for your card, and you’ll be on your way to relief in no time.
Find a local dispensary.
Once you have your medical card, it’s time to make your first marijuana purchase. The easiest way to do this is to find a local dispensary. Dispensaries are all licensed by the state, ensuring that the cannabis you purchase meets the strict safety and quality guidelines set forth by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
Finding a dispensary near you is easy. Just take a look through our Missouri dispensary location guide, which lists dispensary locations throughout the state. Then, pay a visit during their regular business hours. The dispensary staff should be able to help you decide which cannabis products are right for you.
Make your first purchase.
Now that you’ve found your local dispensary, it’s time to go marijuana shopping! Don’t forget to bring your ID and medical card. There are several things to consider upon your first trip to the dispensary. The most important thing to remember is that the staff are there to help. Prepare yourself in advance by knowing what you’d like to get out of your cannabis experience, and be open minded.
There is a vast array of cannabis products available for purchase - from flower products to edibles, to tinctures, vapes, topicals, and more. If this sounds overwhelming, that’s okay. We’ve put together a list of Which Marijuana Products to Try First.
Learn your dosage.
When you first start using medical marijuana, you’ll have a bit of an adjustment period as you learn which dosage works best for you. Cannabis affects everyone differently, so the recommended practice is to start low and go slow until you find the right level to get the most out of your experience.
If you are someone who is seeking the benefits of THC without being impaired, that’s okay. Microdosing may be the perfect option to get the rewards of cannabis without affecting your ability to do your day-to-day tasks.
You can grow your own marijuana.
If you’ve got a green thumb, or simply want more control over your cannabis, you can also grow your own medical marijuana plants when you add on a home cultivation ID for an additional registration fee. Now, you can get relief without having to leave home.
Remember - there’s no shame in using medical marijuana.
Marijuana is medicine. Plain and simple. But, you may find yourself encountering some bias from friends, family, and/or co-workers who still believe the old stigma surrounding cannabis use. There is no shame in choosing to use cannabis to live your best life, but if you find yourself encountering resistance from those close to you, we’ve put together a handy guide on How to Tell Others You Use Medical Marijuana.
