Book Your Appointment
Skip the wait at the doctor’s office and schedule your evaluation from the comfort and convenience of your home. Submit an intake form with a few personal details and a summary of your medical history; then, we’ll help you book an on-demand telehealth appointment or schedule a convenient time for later.
Match With a Licensed Marijuana Doctor
Connect with the right doctor in minutes and easily chat with your provider on a smartphone, computer, or tablet via phone call or video. Our licensed physicians will evaluate your qualifying condition, address your questions and concerns, and then provide a recommendation for medical cannabis via email. Be sure to ask for a visit summary from your physician that details your current medications and medical conditions, as the state will require this information.
Get Your Minnesota Medical Card
Once certified, you will receive an email from the state with your online registration link for the Medical Cannabis Patient Registry. Minnesota does not issue physical medical marijuana cards but a medical marijuana certification instead. Once you have the MMJ certification, you can visit Minnesota dispensaries and purchase medicinal cannabis products.
