Recommending Cannabis in West Virginia
In order to participate in the West Virginia Medical Cannabis Program, a physician must:

- Demonstrate to the Bureau by training or expertise that he or she is qualified in treating
serious medical conditions.
- Successfully complete the required four-hour course established by the Bureau.

scientific research on medical cannabis, including the risks and benefits of using medical
cannabis and other information deemed necessary by the Bureau.
