How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in CT

Step1: Book an appointment

When we're booking appointments in Connecticut, you will schedule an appointment to see a medical marijuana doctor in CT through Veriheal at a time that is most convenient for you. Provide basic medical history and book your appointment with a licensed medical marijuana doctor. You will need medical records and the doctor(s) can approve any qualifying condition.

Step 2: Consult with an mmj Doctor

Consult with a doctor for 15 mins to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. After the appointment is complete, the doctor will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana and approve you. Once you have this you can then use that to apply to the state.

Step 3: Get approved

Once you are approved, you'll register with the state and submit an application. The state will process your application and notify you of your approval and mail your card. Once you have your card in hand, you can begin purchasing from dispensaries.

In Connecticut, patients will need to re-certify their license annually by seeing a licensed physician again. Veriheal will get in touch with you when your certification is approaching its expiration to help you setup a renewal consultation.

Until the program is live, you can join the Veriheal tribe above to gain access to our large network of offerings that are presently available to you.

The Status
of Cannabis
in CT

Connecticut Medical marijuana became legal in 2012 due to an Act Concerning the Palliative Use of Marijuana (HB 5389). Some new items have been added to the legislation recently making the MMJ Program in Connecticut much more lenient. Patients need to obtain a medical marijuana card issued by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection in order to buy or possess cannabis products. Once their MMJ Card is in hand, patients will be allowed to possess up to 2.5 ounces per month. Note that home cultivation is not allowed at this time.
