Understanding Medical Marijuana Cards and Qualifying Conditions in Missouri
June 10, 2020

Missouri legalized medical marijuana with the passage of Amendment 2 in November 2018. The measures set out by Amendment 2 outline that medical marijuana cards in Missouri are being issued by the state after the doctors approval. This allows access to buy THC and CBD products from legal cannabis dispensaries. 

Flora Farms is partnering with Dr. Lisa Roark from Roark Family Health in Cassville, MO to ensure that patients are able to receive quality care they deserve from both doctors and dispensaries.

There are three different types of medical marijuana ID cards:

  • Qualifying Patient Card
  • Primary Caregiver Card
  • Patient Cultivation Card
