Your medical marijuana recommendation will be available immediately, and your hard copy will be mailed the same day.
Access for Patients Under 21
Patients 21 and over may choose to skip the medical marijuana card. But patients under 21 must get a recommendation to legally use cannabis.
Larger possession limits
Medical cannabis patients can possess and purchase up to 8oz of flower, compared to only 1oz of flower for recreational cannabis users!
Save on Sales Tax
While a recommendation letter alone will usually not give you a discount, but the MMIC will. The MMIC will save you sales tax (about 7% to 10% depending on your city) at any dispensary in CA.
Purchase any Products
Medical patients have access to exotic strains and higher-concentration edibles that aren’t available to recreational users.
Visit More Dispensaries
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.
Easy and Discreet
It’s a piece of cake to get a recommendation or medical marijuana renewal with NuggMD. Over 800,000 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’ll never find a better deal on a medical marijuana card, online or offline. In California, recommendations are just $39. Beware of services advertising $20 medical cards, they won’t actually mail you your physical copy.
At NuggMD, you’ll talk to an actual licensed (and friendly) medical practitioner. 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.
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!
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.
We are a team of technology enthusiasts and state-licensed doctors. We believe all people deserve access to medical cannabis if they think it might improve their quality of life.
Since our founding in 2015 we’ve held ourselves to the highest standards when recruiting physicians, journalists, and legal experts to join our team. It’s because of this network of passionate professionals that NuggMD is able to provide access to reliable cannabis information, trustworthy medical practitioners, and proactive updates in the cannabis healthcare ecosystem.
Whether you’re a cannabis connoisseur or thinking of becoming a first-time medical marijuana patient, our doctors will listen to your needs and give you an honest opinion about whether they think cannabis can help.
