How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card in CT

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3


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.


Consult with a doctor for 10-15 minutes to evaluate your ailments, and ask any questions you may have about medical marijuana treatment. After the appointment is complete and if you are approved, the doctor will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana. Once you have this you can then apply to the state.


Once you are approved, you’ll register with the state and submit an application. Starting July 1, 2023, the state no longer requires a registration fee for patients and caregivers. 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. If you haven’t received your certification and it has been greater than 3 weeks, please contact CT State Medical Marijuana program directly.

In Connecticut, medical marijuana 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 set up a renewal consultation.

The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Connecticut

Recently in Connecticut cannabis reform, House Bill 6941 was signed into law by Governor Ned Lamont. The bill provides tax reforms to state-licensed cannabis businesses, reducing their state tax burden. 

Since medicinal cannabis use was made legal, the Constitution State has added several qualifying conditions and recently opened its final dispensary in Groton. With 18 licensed dispensaries available throughout Connecticut, patients and qualified caregivers can conveniently travel to a local dispensary, where edibles and flowers are available for purchase, according to The Day.  

While medicinal cannabis is legal in Connecticut, recreational use is still prohibited, but is a consideration, reports Benzinga. “In 2018, state medical spending reached $83 million, according to data from Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics,” reports the financial news source. “That figure is expected to dip to $71 million by 2024, with adult-use — if passed — reaching $265 million.”

Connecticut only allows a caregiver to assist one patient at a time. The state specifies that “the only exception is having a parental, guardianship, conservatorship or sibling relationship with each qualifying patient for whom you are registering to be the primary caregiver.”
