We can assume that the following will be required when submitting an application to the South Carolina Department of Health:

  • A non-refundable state application fee


Will I Be Guaranteed Approval for Medical Marijuana After Visiting Your Office?

We cannot guarantee approval, as the doctor is the only person that can make a determination. To make it likely that you will receive approval from the doctor, we recommend that you bring as much information as possible to your appointment regarding your medical condition and past treatments.

​Why Get a South Carolina Medical Marijuana Card?

Effective Treatment ​

If you currently suffer from a medical condition, we strongly suggest that once medical marijuana is legalized, you initiate your treatment regimen under the supervision of a physician who has the training, compassion, and belief in the medicinal qualities of cannabis. At South Carolina Marijuana Card, our doctors are not only licensed by the State but have also received continuing medical cannabis education courses to ensure they have critical and recent information related to the therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana. 


Dispensary Access

Medical marijuana products should be purchased from a licensed South Carolina dispensary. The rules and regulations surrounding what products will be available to you change depending on which bill gets passed. We will keep our website up to date once we know if the senate or house version of the bill is passed!


With your South Carolina Medical Marijuana card in hand, you'll be able to access all South Carolina dispensaries and purchase medical marijuana. These state-licensed marijuana dispensaries carry many forms of medical cannabis in varying strengths and potencies. You will be able to buy products such as tinctures, oils, creams, as well as edibles.


Legal Protection ​

Your South Carolina Marijuana Card will make it easy to demonstrate to law enforcement that you are registered with South Carolina's Medical Marijuana Program, and thereby allowed to possess, transport, and consume medical cannabis products.


Access to Other States ​

A South Carolina Marijuana Card will get you access to all dispensaries located within the state, but you might end up receiving more value than you originally anticipated! Many states with medical marijuana laws extend reciprocity with their programs. This means your marijuana card from South Carolina may end up allowing you to purchase medical cannabis in states with similar requirements.
