Medical marijuana is a plant-based medicine from the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica species with three major active compounds: THC, CBD, and CBN. Humans have grown and consumed the flowering tops of the cannabis plant (collectively known as “marijuana”) for thousands of years. The chemicals produced by the plant, most notably cannabidiol and THC have been shown to have numerous beneficial effects on a number of medical conditions. There are many people that do not respond well and/or have side effects to commonly prescribed medications for these conditions, where Cannabidiol/THC may provide an alternative treatment strategy.
Medical marijuana was legalized in Virginia in 2018. A person interested in legally obtaining medical marijuana must receive a written certification issued by a Virginia Licensed Provider. With over 30 years of experience, our physician and medical team is joining the health community in offering these medical certifications to Virginia residents who may be suffering from a broad range of medical conditions.

You must also show proof of legal residency to the DOH upon registration.
How is medical marijuana different than the CBD products I see advertised that I can buy over the counter?
CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over 100 chemicals found in the cannabis plant (marijuana) plant. CBD has been found to help a number of conditions but it does not cause the “high” experienced with another chemical found in the cannabis plant, THC. Medical marijuana allows for the use of both CBD and THC in combination.
We are conveniently located in Northern Virginia and serve all legal Virginia residents.
