Laws surrounding medical cannabis are continuing evolve, but many are still asking, “How do I get medical marijuana in Minnesota?”
The process surrounding medical marijuana has been a hot topic lately and it seems the qualifications change too quickly to keep up. We have realized the difficulties surrounding acquiring medical marijuana card in Minnesota and we have developed a program that makes the process simple.

How do we provide medical marijuana cards?
This is one of the most commonly asked questions surrounding our program. We provide a quick and easy scheduling tool that will ask you to provide a basic medical history, and select a time most convenient for your initial evaluation with a licensed specialist in medical cannabis. This 100% HIPAA-compliant telemedicine visit includes a marijuana card recommendation (if qualified), care plan, and information about keeping your card active.
Once you’ve scheduled an appointment then you will meet with a certified medical marijuana physician or practitioner who will evaluate your condition and answer questions. We do this through contactless verification which includes you logging in from your mobile device or computer. During this telemedicine visit, if you qualify, the doctor will register your name with the state as an approved patient.
Once our specialist approves you for medical marijuana, your state will grant access to local dispensaries. Local dispensaries are a local government regulated physical location, typically inside a retail storefront or office building, where a qualified person can purchase cannabis and cannabis-related items. You can search for a dispensary near you by zip code.
