Medical Marijuana Card

Missouri residents are able to apply for their patient identification card. Here is a step-by-step guide to preparing for the application process:

Find a Physician

To obtain your medical card you will need to find a medical marijuana clinic or physician to receive a Physician Certification. This can be the most difficult part of the process for most individuals. That’s why we’ve partnered with MMJ Recs to provide convenient, at-home physician consultations. Check out the process below!

Applying for a Missouri medical marijuana recommendation with MMJRecs

  1. Create an MMJRecs account using the form below, or use this link.
  2. Complete a medical survey.
  3. Schedule a consultation with a Missouri licensed physician.
  4. You will receive 3 emails in this process after applying. The first will indicate that your application is under review.
  5. After the doctor’s assessment, a second email will notify you of the doctor’s approval or denial.
  6. If you qualify for medical marijuana, your electronic certification will be uploaded to the MO MMP online portal within 2 business days of approval.
  7. You will receive a third and final email from MMJRecs when your certification is available. That email will contain detailed instructions on how to register for the MO MMP online portal and locate your certification.

If you’ve received all three emails from MMJRecs and cannot find your electronic certification, check the following:

  • Have you registered on the MO MMP Portal using your full legal name and birthdate as it appears on your ID?
  • Is the social security number you provided in your application accurate?

For any questions regarding your approval or electronic certification, please contact MMJRecs support at: [email protected] or 844-386-7463

Time to Get Prepared

You’ve seen the physician and you qualify. Now it’s time to send in your application along with all the required documents. Make sure you have everything the DHSS requires available to scan into the online application form. They aren’t accepting mailed applications at this time.

Here’s what you need:

  • Your signed and completed Physician Certification. You will need to scan this or take a legible photo of it to be uploaded. You may be required to have two physician certifications if your possession limit is higher than the standard.
  • State-issued ID or driver’s license – a legible photocopy
  • Your Social Security Number (SSN)
  • E-mail Address
  • Proof of residency:
    Copy of Missouri driver’s license
    Utility Bill
    Missouri Identification card
  • A clear photo of your face taken within the last 3 months (in front of a white or light-colored background), similar to a passport photo.
  • Payment method for applicable fees

If you are a parent or guardian applying for a patient you will also need this Consent Form. This is currently just a sample. The official one will be uploaded once available.

Go Apply!

Note: If the qualifying patient is a minor the parent or legal guardian will need to provide their name, SSN, Parent/Legal Guardian Consent Form and will act as the Primary Care Giver for the patient.

Now We Wait

Now that you’ve applied and paid your fees, the DHSS has 30 days to approve or deny an application. Your identification cards are valid for one year and you must renew your card before it expires by at least 30-59 days prior with an updated physician certification and updated application. So mark your calendar. You don’t want to have a time gap while you wait for your new card.

Compassionate Care Program

Flora Farms is committed to helping the people of Southwest Missouri, especially in the hard times. We believe that all of our patients deserve help managing their health issues in the safest, most affordable way possible. To that end, we’ve created our Compassionate Care Program.

Through Compassionate Care, Flora Farms aims to ensure that every patient is afforded quality-driven products that can aid in symptom management regardless of your underlying conditions. We believe it so much that we’ll provide deeply discounted cannabis to patients in need, allowing us to provide aid to a much wider pool of patients than the discount programs already provided to veterans and seniors.

Because we own and operate our cultivation facilities as well as dispensaries, we have the privilege of controlling both the quality of our products as well as our prices. Our lower production costs and commitment to our communities allow us to build pricing and discounts in a way that adds real benefits to our patients’ lives. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
