Cannabis Oil Registration Applications for Patients, Parents/Legal Guardians, and practitioners
A patient, parent, legal guardian or registered agent may possess cannabis oil 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 and who maintains a current registration with the Board of Pharmacy. Before a practitioner can issue or continue issuing 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 and possessing cannabis oil.
Practitioners, if you intend to issue a written certification for a patient to possess cannabis oil pursuant to §18.2-250.1 submit the online application for obtaining registration from the Board of Pharmacy. Issuing a written certification without maintaining Board of Pharmacy registration may compromise a patient’s legal possession of cannabis oil and is a violation of Board of Pharmacy regulation. The online registration application is accessible on our Initial Applications site and must be renewed annually. Once the registration has been issued, a link to the written certification form will be sent via email. Please allow 7-10 days for processing the application and sending you the link to the written certification form.
