CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The state Office of Medical Cannabis will begin accepting physician registrations on Thursday.
Doctors must complete a registration application and complete a four-hour education course online.
“Physician registration and training are essential steps to make medical cannabis available to West Virginians with serious medical conditions,” office director Jason Frame said Tuesday.
“The Office of Medical Cannabis continues to work during the COVID-19 pandemic with the goal of providing eligible state residents with the ability to procure quality-tested medical cannabis as soon as possible. We have been able to maintain previously established timelines by utilizing alternative work platforms in keeping with the Governor’s social distancing directive.”
Patients will not be able to immediately obtain cannabis products.
The application and course can be accessed at https://www.medcanwv.org.
The registration period will be indefinitely open.
