How To Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Davidson County

This is extremely limited, as patients and caregivers can only possess lab-certified hemp extracts with greater than 5% CBD and less than 0.9% THC. That’s not real cannabis based medical marijuana. The law for the High CBD Low THC automatically expires on July 1, 2021.
