Named for the world-famous thermal waters that flow into the historic downtown district of the city, the city of Hot Springs is the only American city residing within a national park. Hot Springs is well-known for its thermal waters and for Bathhouse Row. After the end of the Civil War, the city experienced a large influx of people and the beautiful buildings of Bathhouse Row were built between 1892 and 1923. Since 1912, the only remaining continuously operational traditional thermal bathing facility on Historic Bath House Row is Buckstaff Bathhouse Company. The facility continues to provide mineral baths, hot packs, sitz baths, steam cabinets, and Swedish massage to visitors of Hot Springs.

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
- Alzheimer’s disease

- Intractable pain which is pain that has not responded to ordinary medications, treatment or surgical measures for more than six (6) months
- Severe nausea

- Severe and persistent muscle spasms including without limitation those characteristic of multiple sclerosis
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 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. 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.
