How to Get a MMJ Card in Ventura, California

Ventura is one of the smaller counties in California, but is known worldwide for its beaches and being one of the world’s best surf spots. As is probably to be expected for a surfer’s paradise, Ventura and the City of San Buenaventura is a bit more amenable to the idea of both medical and recreational cannabis. Proposition 64 passed in Ventura, with 57.1% voting “Yes” in Ventura City, and 55.56% county-wide. Ventura County is also far more accepting of the cannabis industry in comparison to many other counties in California, although licences to run a cannabis-based business may still be difficult to come by. However, in general, going from a medical-only to a recreational cannabis market has gone mostly smoothly. People from Oxnard, Camarillo, Port Hueneme and Ventura all travel to Ojai in order to take advantage of their cannabis dispensaries and the general beauty of the area.

Yet, it is still worth getting a medical marijuana card if you’re in Ventura, California. There are several advantages, including:

  • Money off the sales tax portion of the total tax, which can mean a saving of anything between 5% and 15% of the total bill, depending upon county.
  • Higher possession limits for medical cannabis patients – 8 ounces in comparison to one.
  • More precedence with regards to protection by the law.
  • The ability to enter a greater number of dispensaries throughout California.

If you wish to qualify for a medical marijuana card in California and wish to speak to one of Leafwell’s doctors, all you need is the following:

  • An internet connection.
    A valid email address.
    A laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet with a working camera, microphone and speakers so you can see and hear the doctor and vice-versa.
    Photographic ID (e.g. driver’s licence, passport).
  • Proof of California residency (e.g. utility bill, bank statement, rental/mortgage agreement).
  • Ideal but not necessary: medical notes/records detailing your condition.
  • We recommend getting both a recommendation and medical marijuana identification card (MMIC) – no MMIC means no money off the sales tax portion of the total cost of any cannabinoid-based products you buy.
