Effective July 1, 2022, HB933 removes the requirement for patients, parents, and legal guardians to register with the Board of Pharmacy. A Written Certification for the Use of Medical Cannabis from a Registered Practitioner for Medical Cannabis is still required and must be presented at the dispensary, along with a government-issued ID, to obtain medical cannabis products.
Medical Cannabis Registration Applications for Patients, Parents/Legal Guardians, and practitioners A patient, parent, legal guardian or registered agent may possess medical cannabis as defined in § 54.1-3408.3 of the Code of Virginia who has been issued a valid written certification from a Board of Pharmacy-registered practitioner. Before a practitioner can issue written certifications, he or she must register with the Board of Pharmacy. A patient/parent/legal guardian must have a written certification issued to them prior to applying for registration with the Board of Pharmacy.
Patients, if you have been issued a written certification for medical cannabis pursuant to §54.1-3408.3, submit the online application for obtaining board registration. Medical cannabis can only be dispensed if the patient has an unexpired valid written certification issued from a board-registered practitioner. The online registration application is accessible on our Initial Applications site and must be renewed annually.
Parents and legal guardians of patients who are minors or incapacitated adults, if you have been issued a written certification to possess medical cannabis pursuant to §54.1-3408.3 for a minor or incapacitated adult, submit the online applications for both the patient and the parent/guardian in the following order:
First, you must have a doctor-patient relationship with someone that you determine to have one or more of the diseases specified in the law. Next, you will need to fill out a waiver form and certification form and have the patient, parent or legal guardian countersign. Patients or caregivers may bring you partially filled out documents or you may choose to provide them with blank forms. Keep the original waiver form for your files. Finally, you or your staff will enter the information on the certification form into the Georgia Low THC Oil Registry portal. You may choose to retain a hardcopy of the certification form if you wish, but all of the information will be maintained in the online registry and that is considered to be the official record.
No. The act of registering a patient is merely a certification that you have an established relationship with the patient, have examined them, and determined they have one or more of the medical conditions set forth in the law. In fact, the certification form approved by the Georgia Composite Medical Board specifically states that it is not a prescription.
BHO is only one of several cannabis and cannabis-type products that have recently increased in availability in medical, retail, and illicit markets. The flowers of the female cannabis plant and other parts of the plant contain phytocannabinoids, including THC. These compounds act on the cannabinoid receptors in the brain and alter neurotransmitter release. Synthetic cannabinoids, which have also gained in popularity despite legal regulations, differ from these natural products derived from the cannabis plant but also act on cannabinoid receptors.7 Oils from the cannabis plant containing cannabinoids can be extracted in a number of ways and used to make high-THC concentration products that are inhaled (either by combustion or vaporization) or ingested. BHO is often made via a process that uses a solvent to draw THC and other cannabinoids from crude cannabis materials. In some instances, these techniques are selected so that the THC in parts of the plant not generally smoked can be recovered in a desirable form.3
In Colorado, much like Washington, it is emphasized that state-licensed manufacturers must produce BHO concentrates utilizing commercial-grade, closed-loop systems. Colorado also requires that the individuals operating the closed-loop system be certified hygienists and the systems be inspected by an engineer. The individuals operating the systems must also undergo criminal background checks and extensive safety training. While Colorado and Washington have similar regulations, Colorado is surprisingly much stricter than Washington. Finally, California allows medical marijuana distributors to possess and sell BHO products but not to produce. In fact, California is one of the growing number of states that are attempting to crack down on the rise of BHO labs in recreational/medicinal states by prosecuting BHO labs in the same manner as methamphetamine labs.2 State administrative agencies, such as the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB), oversee and upkeep state-level closed-loop extraction guidelines. Guidelines are presented and created by licensed engineers accredited by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriter Laboratories (UL), or the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). The set regulations must meet required fire, safety, and building code requirements as specified by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), International Building Code (IBC), and International Fire Codes (IFC).52
Cumulatively, the printed press articles portrayed BHO as harmful (55.9%) with more than half of those characterizing dabbing as being associated with severe harms. Alternatively 23.5% classified BHO as having beneficial effects in the context of medicinal use. The majority of articles did not address the quality of the dabbing high relative to marijuana. Of those that did, evaluations were mixed with 19.1% describing it as less desirable and 16.2% describing it as more desirable. An analysis of reporting by region of the country revealed two key differences; a larger portion of articles written in the west described dabbing as increasing in popularity (79.5%) and a discussion of the commercial distribution of dabs was more often the primary theme (20.5%). It appears that coverage in legalization and decriminalization states generally mirror that of probation and medical states except that coverage in those states frequently implied or directly argued that marijuana and BHO use were increasing (86.1% of the articles in that region vs 43.8% of the articles published elsewhere).
As of July 1, 2022, medical cannabis patients, parents or legal guardians are no longer required to register with the Board of Pharmacy. A Written Certification for the Use of Medical Cannabis from a Registered Practitioner for Medical Cannabis will still be required and must be presented at the dispensary, along with a government-issued ID, to obtain medical cannabis products. Showing proof of registration with the Board of Pharmacy will no longer be required.
A patient, parent or legal guardian must have a written certification issued to them by a registered practitioner prior to obtaining medical cannabis from a permitted dispensary. If desired, a patient, parent or legal guardian may register with the Board of Pharmacy to obtain an optional physical medical cannabis card. Learn More about Patient/Parent/Guardian Registration.
A pharmaceutical processor is a facility that has obtained a permit from the Board of Pharmacy pursuant to §54.1-3408.3 to cultivate Cannabis plants for the production of medical cannabis, and dispense medical cannabis products to patients that have received a written certification from a registered practitioner for treatment or to alleviate the symptoms of any diagnosed condition or disease determined by the physician to benefit from such use. As set forth in §54.1-3442.6 of the Code of Virginia, the Board may issue or renew a maximum of 5 permits, one for each health service area established by the Board of Health. Currently, 4 pharmaceutical processors have been permitted, Dharma Pharmaceuticals, LLC in Abingdon, Columbia Care Eastern Virginia, LLC in Portsmouth, Green Leaf Medical of Virginia, Inc. in Richmond and Dalitso, LLC in Mananssas.
