What Missouri Residents Should Look for in a Marijuana Doctor


Finding a MO Doctor Who is Willing to Recommend Medical Marijuana is Just the First Step.



In the state of Missouri, almost anyone can qualify for a medical marijuana card, but finding a doctor to help is where things start to get a little tricky.


Some people might be embarrassed to talk to the same general practitioner who took care of their parents and maybe even their grandparents. Others have a doctor who does not understand the health benefits of cannabis.


Even some doctors who are amenable to giving medical marijuana a try for their patients may be prohibited by their medical group or hospital affiliation.


To add further to the complication of getting a marijuana recommendation, thousands of Missouri residents don’t have a regular family doctor, and they may not even be covered by a health insurance plan.


Fortunately, Missouri Marijuana Card is here to help! We recognize that finding a marijuana doctor is an investment of time, effort, and money.


It is also an investment in hope.


Natural medicine can help you get the relief you’ve been looking for; but it is vital to find a marijuana doctor who can take you through the process step-by-step, advising you on the right products and dosing to develop a treatment plan that works for your individual needs.


Finding a Marijuana Doctor in Missouri is (Unfortunately) Not Straightforward

Missouri has seen its fair share of marijuana doctors who scam their patients, which may make you hesitant to even try. Some Missouri doctors either had a fraudulent license, or they provided an evaluation and then disappeared—taking your money without offering a recommendation or a refund.


Other marijuana doctors are less malicious and simply negligent. They don’t spend enough time with their patients, they provide little information or guidance, and they are not available for additional consultations after you get your card.


This does not give you the opportunity to make adjustments to your regimen under the supervision of a healthcare professional, and it means you may not have the optimal treatment in the end.


The Characteristics of a Good Marijuana Doctor in MO


Look for a Marijuana Doctor With a Good Reputation

Considering the fact that the Federal Government still considers marijuana a Schedule I substance, you may wonder how any doctor whose job it is to recommend medical marijuana to their patients could have a good reputation.


Lots of companies offering this kind of service seem seedy—and some are.


However, at Missouri Marijuana Card, we have over 4,000 Google-verified 5-star patient reviews. Our clients keep coming back because we aim to provide the highest quality and value you can find in a marijuana doctor.


We offer regular specials, discounts, and packages for new patients as well as renewals, and we want every patient to walk away with a smile. We will spend the time it takes to make sure you are informed and confident in your decisions.


Find a Marijuana Doctor That Has Been Around for a While

We are not trying to give doctors who are just getting started a bad name. And we get it that marijuana doctors in Missouri have not really had an opportunity to build a presence or practice. After all, it hasn’t even been a year since the first MO dispensaries opened in October 2020.


However, some marijuana doctors are just here for the profit they will get from a brand new medical marijuana program. They are not here to build a relationship with their patients, and they may not even be around when you need to renew your card in 12 months.


Missouri Marijuana Card has been around since the beginning. Our parent company operates in several states, and we have seen close to 85,000 patients in the last few years. At Missouri Marijuana Card, we are not going anywhere. In fact, we fully plan to be around for your next marijuana card renewal, and every renewal after that as well.


Marijuana Doctors Should Offer Patient Resources

Some marijuana doctors have only a billboard shouting out a phone number to call. Others have a website where you can make an appointment for an evaluation, but they don’t offer any information or support.


At Missouri Marijuana Card, our blog and patient resources pages keep you posted on all the latest news, education, and developments related to medical and adult-use marijuana. We want to make sure you stay informed, so you can make knowledgeable decisions about your health and well-being.


Our staff and doctors will take the time to help you develop a treatment plan tailored just for you, answer your questions, and make sure you have the confidence to guide your therapeutic journey moving forward.


For the duration of the time that your Missouri marijuana card is valid, you can keep coming back for follow-up consultations for no additional charge. Pay the fee to get your card once, take advantage of professional medical marijuana advice all year long.


Missouri Marijuana Doctors Should be Easy to Contact

It is very important that you are able to contact your marijuana doctor outside of simply making an appointment on their website. Many patients don’t think about this until after they have had an appointment.


They may have a question related to a product or their treatment plan. But when they try to reach out, they find that the only way they can contact their doctor is through an online form.


Missouri Marijuana Card wants to make it as easy as possible for you to reach your marijuana doctor and our staff any time you have a question or need help with your cannabis therapy choices. You can contact us through info@missourimarijuanacard.com, or you can call us 6 days a week at (877) 303-3117.
