Sherwood Medical Marijuana Doctor
Located about 15 miles from the state’s capital city of Little Rock, Sherwood’s centralized location offers access to many dining, shopping, and lodging options. Residents and visitors look forward to several annual events, including the Sherwood Fall Festival and the Enchanted Forest and Holiday Trail of Lights. The Fall Festival, also known as Sherwood Fest, has been held every September for the past 43 years. A multi-use facility, aptly named Sherwood Forest, is frequently utilized for the community’s special events. Sherwood’s recreational facilities also include an outdoor pavilion, a playground, horseshoes, basketball court, miniature golf course, and volleyball court. Seventeen community parks and recreational facilities are also located in Sherwood and amenities include a gymnasium, Olympic-sized pool, running tracks, tennis courts, and a fishing lake.
Sherwood’s Enchanted Forest Trail of Lights is a drive-thru trail with the entrance located at the Sherwood Sports Complex, 511 Bear Paw Road. Opening the Monday after Thanksgiving, the Trail of Lights runs through Dec. 30 every evening. The gates to the Sports Complex close at 9:30 p.m. each night to allow time for vehicles already within the parking lot gates to view the mile+ of spectacular holiday lights. Admission is free but donations to fund future displays are welcomed.
Halloween is another time for community fun in Sherwood. The town’s Halloween Carnival provides a safe trick-or-treating option for parents and a fun opportunity for the kids. The City of Sherwood’s Parks & Recreation Department hosts this free event in the Forest Room at Sherwood Forest, 1111 W. Maryland Avenue. The carnival booths with games, trick-or-treating, prizes, and a costume contest for ages 0 to 12 are all open to the public. This community event is sponsored by local businesses and community organizations. In addition to the carnival, the Sherwood Mayor’s Youth Council, along with the Sherwood Day Camp counselors, host an annual haunted house in the Sherwood Room at Sherwood Forest. Ticket sales for the haunted house benefit the Youth Council’s field trips and other educational activities throughout the school year.
The unique Historic Roundtop Filling Station is one of only two structures in Sherwood to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1936 by Justin Matthews Company for the Pierce Oil Company, the building is used as a substation for the Sherwood Police Department. Pierce Oil was one of the “baby Standards” established following the U.S. Government’s breakup of John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company in 1911.

The Ozark 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 Ozark 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 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.
Ozark MMJ Cards (Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card) 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.
