How to be a medical cannabis caregiver in Georgia

Some patients choose to have – or are required to have – a designated caregiver who can purchase and possess cannabis on their behalf. 

The only people allowed to become cannabis caregivers in Georgia are:

  • the legal guardian of an adult who has a qualifying condition or
  • the parent or legal guardian of a child who has a qualifying condition.

In Georgia, your physician will enter your caregiver information into the state’s registry if you need one. The physician is allowed to enter a maximum of two caregivers per patient. 

The caregiver will then be issued the low-THC oil registry card, which costs the same as a patient card, $25.

Caregivers are allowed to possess up to 20 ounces of low-THC oil only. 

Caregivers cannot:

  • possess any other form of cannabis in Georgia, including flower, edibles, or inhaled forms, 
  • cultivate or manufacture any cannabis products for their patient.

The caregiver application fee is $25.

You can find out more about the registration process on the Department of Public Health’s low-THC oil registry page. You’ll be required to pay $25 when you pick up your card.

Frequently asked. Frequently answered.

  • The qualifications for Georgia’s low-THC medical cannabis program are fairly basic. The state requires patients to have been residents of the state for at least one year prior to registration. Georgia also requires that patients be evaluated by a state-licensed physician and approved for one of the state’s qualifying medical conditions.

     

    Please be aware that the Department may call you to verify your information, and the doctor may want to verify your residency by checking the front and back of your ID. The Department has required some patients to update their address on their ID via the DMV before issuing their medical marijuana card.

  • Having a low-THC oil registry card is the only way for Georgia residents to possess low-THC cannabis oil in the state legally. Registered patients also enjoy a range of benefits and protections not available to consumers without a medical card.

  • NuggMD offers low-cost, risk-free Georgia medical cannabis evaluations, and you only pay if you’re approved for medical cannabis. After the evaluation, medical cannabis patients are also responsible for Georgia’s $50 state registration fee.

  • Health insurance won’t cover the cost of your medical marijuana products because cannabis is still considered illegal under federal law. This may change in the future if the federal government legalizes cannabis.

  • While your evaluation through NuggMD is fast and easy, it takes the state approximately three weeks before your medical marijuana card will be ready for pickup at one of Georgia’s health department locations. 

  • With NuggMD, you are ONLY charged for your evaluation if you are approved. We believe everyone deserves access to a qualified medical cannabis doctor, and the cost of an evaluation shouldn’t be a barrier.

  • 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 support@nuggmd.com 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 Georgia MD or DO to get your medical marijuana renewal evaluation. All NuggMD practitioners are licensed in the state for which they provide evaluations and have acquired all state-required cannabis training and certifications.

  • This depends on the state to which you’re traveling. Each state has different rules regarding reciprocity, and some don’t allow it at all. Check with your destination state to learn more.

  • Yes, but you must have been a resident of Georgia for at least one year before you can sign up for the low-THC oil registry.

     

    Please be aware that the Department may call you to verify your information and the doctor may want to verify your residency by checking the front and back of your ID.
