If you have a qualifying condition with medical documentation (such as medical records, pill bottles, office visit summaries, or a letter from a doctor stating your diagnosis), then you're ready to be seen by our doctor to get certified!

Louisiana Medical Marijuana Certification Process

The certification process in Louisiana is similar to many other medical states. Patients will need to be certified by a doctor and entered into the state registry before being able to access dispensaries.

  • 1
    Schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor.
  • 2
    Speak with the doctor to find out if you qualify.
  • 3
    Get entered into the Louisiana Prescription Monitoring Database and have your recommendation sent to a dispensary.
  • 4
    Start purchasing at the dispensary of your choice!

The majority of doctors in the state are not comfortable with certifying patients for the Louisiana medical marijuana program because marijuana remains illegal on a federal level. In addition, a doctor must be registered with the state in order to certify patients for the program.

For these reasons it can sometimes be difficult for patients to find a doctor who will certify them. We currently offer online Telemedicine visits that allow you to be seen from the comfort and security of home, making the search for a doctor easy for you. All of our doctors are registered with the state and can legally certify you for the program. If you think that you have one of the qualifying medical conditions and have at least one type of proof, then you will most likley qualify. Our doctor can evaluate you, review any medical documentation you are able to provide, and enter you into the state registry.

Once you have been entered into the Louisiana Prescription Monitoring Program and your recommendation has been sent to a dispensary, you will immediately be able to access the dispensary and purchase medical marijuana products. If you need assistance purchasing products or with the Prescription Monitoring Program, we recommend contacting the state directly at 225-925-6496.
