Benefits of Having a Medical Cannabis Card

Access for Ages 18-21

Recreational marijuana states allow use for anyone age 21 or over, but medical patients under the age of 21 must obtain a doctor's recommendation to legally use cannabis. That’s where NuggMD comes in!

Larger possession limits

In all states, medical cannabis patients can possess and purchase larger amounts than recreational cannabis users. In most states, medical cannabis is the only option for legal use!

Save on Taxes

In California there exist state excise taxes, cultivation taxes, and sales tax at the local municipality level. As a medical marijuana patient, you’ll save about 10% on your purchases!

Purchase any Products

Medical patients have access to exotic strains and higher-concentration edibles that aren't available to recreational users.

Visit More Dispensaries

Even in legal states, many local cities allow medical cannabis, but not recreational. Having a medical card will grant you access to any Bureau of Cannabis Control licensed marijuana dispensary in your area.

Apply for your MMIC

In all states, a doctor's recommendation allows you to apply for the state program. California's Medical Marijuana Identification Card Program (MMICP) is optional, Nevada's Registry ID program is needed for medical purchases, and New York's Registry Identification Card is mandatory for full protection, but all these states have one thing in common - you have to be approved by a doctor first!

Why Over 500,000 Patients Have Trusted NuggMD

Easy and Discreet

It's a piece of cake to get a recommendation or medical marijuana renewal with NuggMD. Over 500,000 patients since 2015 have been approved by one of our doctors! Plus, patients love us because we value their privacy. From the statement on your credit card bill to the physical mailer you receive with your recommendation inside, none of our language or packaging mentions cannabis in any way!


You won’t find a cheaper medical marijuana card anywhere else, online or offline. In California, recommendations are just $39. In Nevada, they’re $79 for one year and $99 for two years. In New York, you’ll pay $149, and in Oklahoma, just $99! Beware of services advertising $20 medical cards, they won’t actually mail you your physical copy.

100% Legal

At NuggMD, you'll talk to an actual licensed (and friendly) physician. Once you're approved, your medical cannabis card and recommendation comes embossed with the seal that legal dispensaries require to confirm your patient status is authentic. We’ve considered over 300 doctors to join the NuggMD platform, but only work with a small fraction of them who genuinely want to help patients live better with medical cannabis.

Safe and Reliable

Our doctors are caring and friendly. They truly understand how cannabis is used and can explain it in simple language, and work with us because we provide a secure portal for them to speak with you. Your private information will always remain confidential and will never appear on a public database. Beware that many online services don’t always use secure HIPAA data storage protocols!

Ongoing Support

NuggMD is here for you before, during, and after your consultation. Our Customer Support team is available every day from 8 am to 10 pm to help you make the most of your recommendation, understand state laws, and more. You can be confident we're with you every step of the way.

NuggMD is the easiest way to get your medical cannabis card online without leaving your home. We’ve served over 500,000 patients across California, New York, Nevada, and Oklahoma, and are the largest and highest-rated destination for online cannabis evaluations in the world.

Is it legal to get my recommendation online?

down arrow

Absolutely. NuggMD health practitioners are registered in the state for which they offer service. Our online solution is in accordance with state telehealth laws, and we protect all of our clients' private information with storage on a HIPAA-compliant database.

What conditions qualify for medical cannabis?

down arrow

Each state that allows medical marijuana has their own list of qualifying conditions for treatment. The full list of qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in California include cancer, anorexia, AIDS, chronic pain, spasticity, glaucoma, arthritis, migraine, or any other illness for which marijuana provides relief.

Can I get a medical marijuana card at 18?

down arrow

Absolutely! To get your Medical Cannabis Card you only have to be 18+. However, minors under 18 aren’t eligible to see a medical marijuana doctor online. But, with parental consent, minors can visit a licensed physician in person and qualify for medical cannabis.

Where can I use my medical marijuana card near me?

down arrow

Your California medical marijuana card gives you full access to purchase cannabis CBD and THC flowers, tinctures, oils, edibles, topicals, vapes, and other product types from both medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries or delivery services throughout the state. Just bring your medical cannabis recommendation with you, and remember that you can verify your weed card 24/7 through our website.

Do I still need a California medical marijuana identification card (MMIC) in 2020?

down arrow

No, because of Proposition 215, you don’t need a state-issued MMIC to enjoy the benefits that come with being a medical cannabis patient in 2020. However, if you’d like to save even more on taxes and be granted even further protection under federal law, you’ll have to register with your local Department of Health to receive the state-issued card. Having your MMIC card also allows law enforcement officials to easily verify that you have a legitimate medical cannabis card.

What documents do I need to qualify?

down arrow

You don’t need any documentation other than your California state identification card, driver’s license, or U.S passport. If you have medical records that you think will help your doctor better evaluate your eligibility for medical cannabis, you may upload those during the NuggMD signup process. If applying for the state MMIC after completing your NuggMD appointment (optional), you’ll need your doctor’s recommendation, a valid government-issued I.D., a photo taken at the county’s program office, and proof of residency within your county.

Can I get a renewal online?

down arrow

Yes, you can quickly and cheaply renew your medical marijuana card online through NuggMD for the same low price of $39.

Does California accept out of state MMJ cards?

down arrow

Unfortunately, no. While many other states have reciprocity and will accept a California mmj card, California does not accept medical marijuana cards from other states

More FAQ

Why it’s best to consult with a marijuana doctor online.

In many cases, family doctors are unwilling to issue medical marijuana recommendations because they simply don't understand the potential medical benefits of cannabis treatment. Most medical schools don't even offer classes about the endocannabinoid system--the group of nerve receptors in our body that interact with THC, CBD and the other cannabinoids in cannabis. This is where services like NuggMD come in. NuggMD's fully-licensed physicians, all registered with the California Medical Board, have taken the extra time to become educated about cannabis. They know which medical conditions it's recommended for, and understand how it can help those conditions. So ask away during your consultation! These doctors are in the know.
