The Easiest Way To Get a Medical Marijuana Card in New Jersey

In today’s society, there are many angles to treat many ailments. For some, traditional medicine and corporate pharmaceutical route remain the top options. However, more and more are waking up to the natural wonders of medical marijuana. This is the case for residents of New Jersey as well, a state where cannabis programs are expanding. If you wish you to obtain a card and you live in New Jersey, we are here to help.

The steps to gain access to New Jersey’s medical cannabis program are simple. We will walk you through the process. So, sit back, relax, and let’s look at the law.

Where To Begin?

In order to be eligible for a medical marijuana card in New Jersey, you must be a state resident of legal age. For this card, the minimum age is 18. You must first be approved by a licensed physician. There are many ailments that qualify you for medical cannabis use. These include:

If you are having trouble determining if your illness or ailment qualifies you for the NJ medical marijuana program, ask us. Veriheal exists to get you the treatment you need.

Once you know that your ailment is treatable with cannabis, you need to see a doctor. This can be any licensed physician in the state of NJ. If you wish to make matters simpler, let Veriheal put you in front of one of our doctors. They can get you checked out in a private, quick manner. This saves you time, money, and energy, and it gears you up for proper cannabis treatment. Apply for your New Jersey medical marijuana card to get started.

After seeing a doctor, you will need to fill out a simple state application. You must provide a passport-style photo, a valid New Jersey ID, and your current utility bill (within the last 90 days). The registration fee is $100, but there are certain categories that may qualify you for a reduced fee.

The Do’s and Don’ts in NJ

There are certain laws and rules that you must follow once you have been approved.

For starters, you absolutely cannot operate a vehicle while under the influence of marijuana. While there are differences in drunk driving versus driving stoned, the law is the law. If you want your card, play by the rules. Be safe. Be considerate of others on the road.

Why You Should Get Your Medical Marijuana Card

Veriheal has satisfied millions of patients nationwide by giving them access to these benefits

  • Larger purchase limits
  • Peace of mind
  • Enhanced legal protection
  • Access to higher potency strains
  • Save up to 25% on cannabis purchases
  • Skip the line at the dispensary

You cannot smoke:

  • At a public park, beach, rec center, or anywhere smoking is prohibited
  • On public transportation
  • On a school bus
  • On or near any school grounds
  • In a moving private vehicle
  • At a correctional facility

Further, be sure that you do not share your medical marijuana to anyone else. NJ is strict about this, so do not take it lightly. Sharing is caring, but don’t argue with the law on this one.

Your medical cannabis is to remain at your residence at all times. Keep it stored in its proper, original package. Make sure that the label is not damaged. Also, in the even that you must transport it (moving to a new house, etc.), always have your medical marijuana program card on you as well as proper ID. Do not give any legal authority the go-ahead to make your day quite poor.

While this may sound like many things to remember, it isn’t. Keep it simple. If you think you are doing something against the medical marijuana law in NJ, look it up. Don’t put yourself at unnecessary risk. Yes, it is a huge win that cannabis is legal for this purpose in your state, but always follow the rules. Until we live in a society in which marijuana is as widely accepted as alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, prescription pills, junk food, and other substances, treat your state’s laws with the highest respect.

Look To Veriheal

Does a licensed chiropractor qualify as a doctor who can provide a diagnosis to be used to qualify a person for a medicinal marijuana card?

admin says:

In some instances, possibly. They would need to be registered with NJ’s medical cannabis program. You can always ask them directly. If they’re not registered with the program, we can help you:

A chiropractor will not qualify unless they are an MD. States currently only allow either an MD doctor, a Nurse Practitioner, or in some instances a Physician Assistant. Essentially any physician who has the ability to prescribe medication will be able to certify a person for a medical cannabis card.

Hello! I was wondering if I would be able to apply for a card. I suffer from Endometriosis and diagnosed with having NES (Non- epileptic seizures). I’m in pain constantly from the Endometriosis and over the counter medication does not help.

I am 80% disabled through the VA for PTSD. I am considered unemployable due to this and am collecting at a 100% rate. I think medical RX applies, right?

Do you have to already have a previously diagnosed condition or will your doctor help with that? I have nausea and anxiety but have never gone to get an official diagnosis.

Alice says:

I’m in severe lower back pain. I’ve had it for a long time at a a more moderate intensity. I saw an orthopedic surgeon today who prescribed meloxicam and Gabapentin. I was given a referral for physical therapy. This course of treatment takes time, but I am screaming in agonizing pain at times.

I have a NJMMP card that is valid until 2022. My question is, in the beginning I needed a prescription/recommendation that only lasted 3 months. Do I still need that in order to go to a dispensary?

Glenn says:
