Any condition or diagnosis can be qualifying if a provider determines that Medical Marijuana could be beneficial. Virtually all conditions qualify!
To get certified for your Maine medical marijuana card you will need either a Maine-issued Driver’s License or Identification Card as proof of residency.
In addition, our providers require some form of medical proof of your condition. Proof includes ANY of the following:
- pill bottles
- medical records
- office visit notes
- letter/note from your doctor
- X-ray (radiographic) reports that clearly state your name and the condition/injury
If you have any questions, our support team can help. Just give them a call or text at 1-877-242-0362.
Once you are set, all you need to do is have your video evaluation with one of our licensed Maine medical marijuana providers. This appointment usually lasts no more than 15-20 minutes.
The provider will speak to you about your current medical conditions and how medical cannabis can help. They will then fill out a Written Certification form and provide you with your Patient ID card, provided by the State of Maine, that certifies you as a Maine medical marijuana patient and allows you to purchase at state registered dispensaries.
There is no required state registration for patients. Once you are approved by our provider and receive your Written Certification and Patient ID Card you will be able to purchase at Maine dispensaries and possess medical marijuana.
