New York Medical Marijuana Certification Process

The certification process in New York is similar to many other medical states. Patients will need to obtain a Physician Written Certification Form from a licensed medical marijuana doctor first in order to apply with the state for a medical card.

  • 1
    Schedule an appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor.
  • 2
    Speak with the doctor to find out if you qualify.
  • 3
    Obtain your written certification form and apply with the state.
  • 4
    Get your electronic medical marijuana ID card and start purchasing at dispensaries!

The first step in getting your New York medical marijuana card is to be evaluated and certified by a state-licensed medical cannabis doctor.

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 by a medical cannabis doctor from the comfort and security of home, making the search for a physician easy for you.

If you believe that you have one of the qualifying medical conditions and have at least one type of proof, then you will most likely qualify. Our doctor can evaluate you, review any medical documentation you are able to provide, and issue your certification so that you can apply for your card.

The next step after being certified by a doctor is to apply online with the New York Department of Health. In order to apply, patients will need to have the signed physician written certification form and a state-issued identification card (such as a driver’s license). If you're having trouble submitting your application to the state or any part of the registration process, we recommend contacting the state directly for support at 844-863-9312.
