There are several benefits to obtaining your medical card. Here are some of the privileges that come with acquiring one:
Access to dispensaries
Have you ever wondered what’s on the other side of those secured doors? Getting your medical card will permit you to enter the dispensary floor to speak with educated Cannabis Consultants and browse a variety of unique offerings. JANE dispensary is located in the Delmar Loop, making it a convenient stop while you stroll the nearby shops (such as Vintage Vinyl, Avalon Exchange, Sunshine Daydream) – on the way to one of the many restaurants on the block (like Blueberry Hill, Fitz’s, Three Kings) – or even before heading to a show at The Pageant or Delmar Hall!
Medical dispensaries have strict requirements for their cannabis, which includes accurate lab-tested dosing information that can help you find the desired effect. This is useful for those who want to microdose edibles. Similarly, it benefits those that want to use cannabis without feeling high. JANE has a product for everyone, high and low dose, whether you prefer to eat, drink OR smoke your medicine.
Lower age requirement
Generally, states that offer recreational cannabis require you to be at least 21 years of age to access dispensaries. However, in Missouri having a card allows patients from 18-21 years of age to obtain cannabis medically. Those younger than 18 with more severe medical conditions may also qualify.
More potent cannabis
The cannabis found in medical dispensaries is high-grade and potent. It is also tested independently to ensure quality. You can find strong medical strains, edibles, and other products with high levels of THC. JANE’s Cannabis Consultants can help you make sense of the labels and direct you to the most potent products available. On the flip side, Cannabis Consultants can also assist in suggesting lower potent products for those that just need a little boost in their life.
Legally purchasing cannabis
Those with a medical card are eligible to purchase equivalent to 4 ounces of cannabis in a 30-day period. (Tip: You can double your allotment to 8 ounces if you obtain two doctor recommendations!) Being a Missouri Medical Patient ensures you won’t receive legal consequences for possessing cannabis. Otherwise, it can result in a federal offense. Keep in mind, public consumption is not permitted in Missouri, but as a patient you can lawfully possess up to 8 ounces with full peace of mind.
After the initial fee to get your card, you can save money at Missouri dispensaries, meaning your card will pay for itself within just a few visits! In states like Illinois, recreational cannabis taxes range from 10-25% - and that doesn’t even include state and local taxes. In Missouri, the medical cannabis tax is a modest 4%, and the best part is the revenue from these tax dollars support veteran services through the Missouri Veterans Health and Care Fund.
