You will need a valid photo ID and if possible, at least one form of proof of your medical condition such as medical records, pill bottles, office visit summaries, or a letter from your doctor.
If you don't have medical documentation, you can still get certified! Call or text us at 240-356-1000 so that we can schedule you with a doctor that can diagnose and then a doctor that can certify you. We do not charge extra for the diagnosis.
Once your telemedicine appointment is booked, you'll receive a confirmation email shortly after. This email will have the link to your intake form which is where you will fill out your medical information as well as upload your ID and any medical documentation you are able to provide.
The cost to see our provider once the program is up and running will be $200.
Only a licensed medical marijuana doctor can determine if you qualify for the program, so we cannot guarantee your approval.

Yes. Children (under the age of 18) can become medical marijuana patients in Alabama. However, the child must have a parent or guardian register as his/her caregiver.
Caregivers provide a service for medical marijuana patients (including those under 18) who cannot or do not wish to go to a dispensary to purchase their medical marijuana. A caregiver is able to purchase medical marijuana on behalf of the patient as well as help administer the medication. Caregivers are only appointed by patients and must be 21 years or older and register with the state as a caregiver.
The Alabama medical marijuana registry is not yet open, but will be sometime in 2022 according to the state. The registration fee will be $50 at the most. We will be happy to assist our patients with the registration process when the time comes.
No. Insurance companies do not cover any costs associated with medical marijuana due to conflicts with federal law.
Legal patients will be able to purchase medical marijuana products from any licensed dispensary in the state. They will also be able to use their card in states that offer reciprocity.
Allotments have yet to be determined by the state. We should know more closer to the registry opening next year.

No one will be able to find out your status as a medical marijuana patient unless you openly tell them or if you are administered a drug test for marijuana.
Yes. With Alabama being an at-will state and there not currently being any legislation in place that protects medical marijuana patients in the workplace, medical cardholders can still be administered drug screenings and receive disciplinary action regarding the results of drug screenings. For this reason, we recommend making sure you are fully aware of your employer’s policy regarding drug screenings and medical marijuana before moving forward with the process.
Alabama does not have any restrictions regarding patients on probation or parole, however, you must get permission from your probation or parole officer first before pursuing a medical marijuana card.
As a legal medical marijuana patient, you are protected. Patients do not have to disclose that they possess medical marijuana and do not have to consent to a search. However, if a search is conducted and medical marijuana is found, the patient should immediately present their patient ID card or direct law enforcement to the state database to show that they are a legal patient.
This will be determined by the state and dispensaries by the time the registry opens in 2022.
There are not currently any states that offer reciprocity for Alabama medical marijuana patients, but this may change once the program is fully up and running.
Yes! You do not have to be seen by the same doctor each year. If you were certified by another medical marijuana doctor last year and would like to switch to Green Health Docs, we will be happy to take care of you!
