4 Easy Steps to Get Your Medical Card with NuggMD

I’ll be going over what to expect during your med card evaluation, so you can feel prepared for your appointment first.

You’ll sign up on our website and answer a few health questions.

Once your profile is created, you’ll be directed to our payment screen. If for any reason you are not approved by one of our doctors, there’s a 100% refund, so there’s no risk in getting started.

After the payment screen, you’ll be asked to upload your photo ID.

From there, our site will take you to our online waiting room.

The average wait time is less than 15 minutes.

Be sure to stay on that waiting room screen, so you don’t lose your spot in the queue during your evaluation.

Your doctor will ask some questions based on the health information you provided in your profile.

You can use this time to ask any questions.

They’re more than happy to address any concerns and offer guidance on medical cannabis.

Depending on where you live, you’ll either be able to download and use your med card right away or you might be asked to complete registration with your state.

If your state falls under the latter, we will provide a PDF with step by step information after your appointment.

Our support team is also available via live chat and email if you need help.

Your med card might be issued digitally, shipped to you in the mail, or picked up from your local health department.

Again, state specific information will be provided to you after your evaluation.

Once you get your medical marijuana card, you can shop from any dispensary in your state.

Thanks for tuning in to learn more about our process at NuggMD.

If you have any questions, please message our live chat team or email us at

I look forward to speaking with you!

Benefits of Getting a Medical Card

Medical cannabis patients receive many benefits that aren't available to recreational consumers. Depending on your state, these benefits may include:

  • Access Safe, Lab-Tested Products. Shopping at licensed medical dispensaries guarantees you're using products that have been tested for purity and potency.
  • Increased Legal Protections for Patients. Getting a medical card may grant increased protections for employees, parents, renters, and organ transplant recipients.
  • Save on Every Purchase. Medical card holders can save 10-20% or more on taxes every purchase compared to recreational consumers in many states.
  • Larger Purchase Limits. In many states, medical cannabis patients can purchase 2-8x more than recreational consumers.
  • Larger Possession Limits. Medical patients can possess more cannabis than recreational consumers in many states.
  • Grow Your Own Cannabis at Home. Home grows ensure you always have access to your preferred strains, but home cultivation may be restricted to medical card holders only in some states.
  • Access to More Dispensaries. A medical card grants you access to every dispensary in your state, so you can save on travel time.
  • Wider Product Selection. Some states offer more product types and higher potency products only for medical patients.
  • Patient-Only Sales. Some dispensaries offer special discounts exclusive to medical card holders.
  • Access Cannabis While Traveling. Many states without adult-use sales accept out-of-state medical cards, so you can still access cannabis while you're on the go.
  • Qualified Medical Guidance. Getting a medical card means you have support from a friendly doctor who understands your needs and can answer your healthcare and cannabis questions.
