CBD & THC-A PRODUCTS
We are proud to partner with Dr. Lisa Barr as a distributor of her very own MedCBD brand. Grown and processed in Colorado, our CBD products come in a variety of forms, including both full spectrum and isolate tinctures, as well as topical salve.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is one of the many phytonutrients found in the cannabis sativa plant. CBD specifically is a non-psychoactive component, and therefore does not provide the "high" associated with THC use. The tinctures and salve available for purchase in our office contain up to 0.3% THC, the legal limit for non-state regulated products. Although this is a very low percentage and should not induce any psychoactive effects, we suggest the use of isolate products for patients in military or law enforcement positions who do not want the concern of a positive drug screen.
What are the benefits of CBD?
CBD can be beneficial in many ways, including anxiety relief, aiding in sleep, relief in muscle/joint pain, and much more. When ingested sublingually, CBD can have an overall calming and relaxing effect.
Is marijuana legal in Virginia?
This is a very commonly asked question from patients. A bill for legalization was recently passed in the state of Virginia, however legal possession will not go into effect until July 2021.
Virginia requires a written certification to purchase CBD/THC-A products through state-regulated pharmacies. These products may contain up to 5% THC, a significantly higher percentage than the over-the-counter products currently available. Patients wishing to obtain a written certification must first be seen and evaluated by a provider. Your provider will then issue a written certification as appropriate, and then patients need to register with the Virginia Department of Health Professions before being able to purchase cannabis products.
Where can I purchase these products?
We currently sell medical-grade CBD products in our office which can be purchased without a written certification.
At this time (2/2021), pharmacies are now open in Bristol, Manassas, Richmond, and Portsmouth for cannabis products. These pharmacies are the ONLY facilities that handle CBD/THC-A products, including tinctures, edibles, and cartridges.
How do I obtain a written certification?
Written certifications will be distributed after an evaluation with a provider and the use of CBD/THC-A products is deemed appropriate. Providers can provide written certifications for a variety of diagnoses AT THEIR DISCRETION.
These consultations will be scheduled BY APPOINTMENT ONLY on Fridays from 3-5pm. The cost for the visit is $200 out of pocket. We require a 50% deposit at time of scheduling, with the remainder due at time of service. In addition to obtaining the written certification from your provider, patients will then need to register with the Virginia Board of Pharmacy and pay an annual $50 registration fee. We require all patients to sign an informed consent agreement during the visit.
