How to be a medical cannabis caregiver in Vermont

To be a registered caregiver in Vermont, you must be

  • 21 or older,
  • a resident of Vermont, and
  • Responsible for the patient’s wellbeing in respect to their cannabis use.

A patient may only have one caregiver unless they’re under 18, in which case they may have two. A caregiver may only care for one patient at a time.

A caregiver may cultivate up to two plants for their patient and purchase/possess up to two ounces of cannabis for their patient. Registered patients are also allowed to accompany a patient to the dispensary and may be present in a medical dispensing room with their patient.

The fee for a Vermont medical marijuana caregiver application is $50, and the fee is non-refundable. If the patient is under 18, then there is no fee for the first caregiver application. If a patient under 18 has two caregivers, there will be a $50 fee for the second caregiver application.

Frequently asked. Frequently answered.

  • Any Vermont resident with a qualifying condition can sign up for the medical marijuana program once their doctor provides a certification. Patients under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian acting as a caregiver.

    • Cancer
    • Multiple sclerosis
    • HIV or AIDS
    • Glaucoma
    • Crohn’s disease
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD requires attestation that the patient is an active therapy client. This can be provided through the Mental Health Care Provider form, or by simply providing the contact information for your therapist.)


    Medical conditions that produce one or more of the following symptoms also may qualify:

    • wasting syndrome
    • chronic pain
    • severe nausea
    • seizures
  • The list of debilitating medical conditions is maintained by the Department of Consumer Protections. As such, the Department Commission has established a Board of Physicians, all of whom are state-licensed physicians and surgeons. This board will be responsible for recommending to the Department of Consumer Protection other debilitating medical treatments, or diseases that should also be eligible for the use of medical marijuana. Not only that, but the Department of Consumer Protection has laid out regulations on medical marijuana to allow members of the public to present a petition to the Board if they wish to recommend other qualifying medical conditions or treatments.

  • Save on taxes: Recreational users will pay between 20% and 21% in taxes. Medical users are exempt from these taxes.

    Higher possession limits: Patients can possess two ounces of cannabis in public. Recreational users are limited to one ounce.

    Higher purchase limits: Recreational users are limited to just one ounce, but medical purchase limit is two ounces.

    No THC limits: Not only can you buy more cannabis, but there are no potency limits. Recreational users are limited to 30% THC flower, and 60% THC concentrates.

    Get home delivery: Medical dispensaries can deliver cannabis to patients’ homes.

    Order curbside pickup: Medical dispensaries can sell cannabis via curbside delivery.

  • It only costs $99 to get a Vermont MMJ evaluation with NuggMD, and there’s no risk because patients who don’t qualify for the program will get their evaluation for free! After their evaluation, MMJ patients are also responsible for Vermont’s $50 state registration fee.

  • No, Vermont doesn’t have any laws in place that require insurance companies to cover cannabis. Some states are enacting laws to either require state insurance to cover cannabis, or allow private insurers to do so. We’ll update this page when Vermont passes such a law.

  • It takes just minutes to sign up and get your evaluation, but the state of Vermont takes up to 30 days to review your patient application. If approved, you’ll receive your card at the address provided in the application.

  • If you’re not approved, you won’t be charged for your evaluation. So, there’s no risk to you!

  • You’ll only be charged if you’re approved for your medical marijuana certification. If not, your evaluation is free! If you sign up and pay for your evaluation, but then cancel before your evaluation, there is a small $10 fee for the payment processing. You can also change your mind after your evaluation if you wish and request a refund, but you must do so before your certification has been submitted to the state. Once you’ve been certified, a refund for services will no longer be available. Please send an email to with the subject line “Refund Request” and a brief description of your issue. We want to make sure you’re 100% satisfied with your purchase being that you, the customer, are the most important thing to us! Once a refund has been initiated, please allow 3-5 business days for the funds to transfer back to the card you used for the transaction. A refund is no longer available more than 30 days after the date of your evaluation. If any issues arise, please feel free to reach back out for further assistance.

  • Absolutely! You have the right to see any doctor you choose for your annual evaluation. If you’re switching physicians, be sure to bring your medical records from your last evaluation and any medical records you have related to your condition. This will help your doctor conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition.

  • This depends on the state your traveling to. Many states offer reciprocity agreements with other states’ medical marijuana programs. However, the extent of this reciprocity varies. Some states only allow patients to possess cannabis, but not to purchase it in the state. Other states only offer reciprocity to patients with conditions listed on their qualifying conditions list. Check with the medical marijuana department in the state to which you’re traveling to learn more.

  • No. You must have a valid Vermont driver’s license or ID in order to apply for a Vermont medical marijuana card. For a complete list of documents needed for a Vermont medical marijuana card, see the Vermont medical marijuana patient application.
