Malvern Medical Marijuana Doctor
AR MMJ Cards provides medical marijuana cards to residents of Malvern, Arkansas. Originally founded as a railroad stop at the eastern edge of the Ouachita Mountains, Malvern is now the county seat of Hot Spring County. Large amounts of locally available clay have benefitted the city’s economy. Three Acme Brick plants make their home in Malvern, helping boost the city’s reputation as the “Brick Capital of the World.” The town celebrates its history with brick with an annual festival aptly named, “Brickfest” which includes a brick-car derby and a best-dressed brick contest along with food, beverages, and music.
The Malvern Commercial Historic District includes twenty-six historic structures. The properties date from the 1890s to the 1920s. The number of buildings within the boundaries of South Main Street between East First Street and East Fifth Street is unusual. Over the decades, the businesses and organizations had great influence on the town’s development, although the majority are no longer in operation today.
Lake Catherine State Park is located in Malvern and offers residents and visitors plentiful opportunities for outdoor recreation. The park’s cabins, campgrounds, hiking trails, and educational programs provide a serene escape into nature. Those craving more excitement can enjoy the nearby whitewater playground created on the Ouachita River via timed releases of water from Lake Catherine. Kayakers frequent the Ouachita River near I-30.
AR MMJ Card is a mobile medical marijuana certification service. The only service of its kind in Arkansas, our mission is to increase access to legal medical marijuana certification at the lowest cost and to provide our patients with the best possible guidance regarding the safe, responsible use of medical marijuana.
There are currently 18 qualifying conditions for medical marijuana therapy that the state of Arkansas recognizes as legal and valid:
- Positive status for human immunodeficiency virus/ acquired immune deficiency syndrome
- Hepatitis C
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
- Tourette’s syndrome
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Severe arthritis

The AR MMJ Card process: a potential patient will submit the patient information form found on our website and upload a record of a qualifying condition. Within one business day, the patient will receive a phone call to schedule a concierge appointment. Visits generally take about 15 minutes, but extra time is reserved so the doctor is able to answer any questions the patient may have. Upon conclusion of the certification, the patient will receive the Physician’s Written Certification required for a State-issued medical marijuana card. We guide every patient through the process of applying with the state of Arkansas, once you have received your medical recommendation from AR MMJ Card’s concierge physician.
For patients without documentation of a qualifying condition, an appointment will need to be scheduled with our concierge service to confirm qualification for $100 before proceeding with medical marijuana card certification. Per HIPAA regulations, any information obtained between a physician and a patient in a bona fide medical arrangement is completely confidential and private. This is known as Protected Health Information and a third party can only obtain it with the written consent of the patient. Qualification is not guaranteed. Qualifying is based on the doctor’s determination, qualifying conditions, and a patient’s complete medical history.
AR MMJ Cards (Arkansas Medical Marijuana Cards) was founded by Dr. Daniel Whitelocke to ensure patients receive quality care and have access to alternative medicines including medical cannabis. After extensive research on the benefits of medical marijuana card programs in other states, Dr. Whitelocke decided he wanted to help patients by offering affordable medical cannabis card certifications. Rather than having patients experience the inconvenience of a long clinic wait and added cost, Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card services are brought directly to the patient.
Dr. Whitelocke is the only MMJ Card certification that offers mobile medical marijuana cards – he or his team can meet at a home, office, favorite coffee place, or other location that is convenient for the patient. It is important to note that AR MMJ Cards does not carry ANY form of marijuana products nor do we sell any form of THC-containing products in our mobile clinics. These products can only be obtained legally from a licensed Arkansas dispensary.
