Maine Medical Marijuana Certification Process
The certification process in Maine is a bit different than in many other medical states. Once a patient has received their written certification and ID card from their doctor, they can immediately begin using it at dispensaries. There is no state registration required!
Schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor.
Speak with the doctor to find out if you qualify.
Get your medical marijuana ID card and start purchasing at dispensaries the same day!
The majority of doctors in the state are not comfortable with certifying patients for the Maine 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 if qualified issue your patient ID card the same day so that you can start purchasing at dispensaries.
