Most Common Conditions
Not every patient is able to manage their own medications, that’s why Michigan allows patients to designate a caregiver to assist them in purchasing, cultivating, and administering their medication. Patients under the age of 18 need to have a parent or legal guardian designated as a caregiver in order to register.
In Michigan, there are two ways for a patient to designate a caregiver. Patients can name a caregiver at the time they first register. That would require that the patient add their caregiver in their registration and include that caregiver’s state-issued ID. Michigan also provides a form for patients to add a caregiver after they’ve registered. In that case, they’d have to fill out the form and include the caregiver’s state ID.
In order to serve as a caregiver in Michigan, you must:
Follow the instructions once you start the NuggMD process to fill out your application. Make sure you enter all of your information accurately to avoid possible delays in your processing. When you’re approved, your NuggMD medical marijuana doctor will initiate the state registration process by entering your information into the state database.
Once your doctor completes this process, you’ll receive email notification to finish your state registration via their online portal. You’ll need to enter all of the requested information and pay the state registration fee of $40.
Michigan medical cannabis patients are required to renew their card every two years. It’s recommended that you renew at least a month before your card expires, but you can renew as soon as 60 days before the expiration date. The renewal process requires you to sign in to the same online portal that you used to register and select your card from the list of registered cards to renew. Michigan’s renewal fee is $40.
Thankfully, the process for how to renew your Michigan medical cannabis card isn’t complicated. And NuggMD makes the process even easier!

All MI medical cannabis patients must be permanent residents of the state. Michigan also requires that patients be evaluated and certified by a state-licensed physician for one of the state’s qualifying medical conditions. Patients under the age of 18 need a parent or guardian to approve of the treatment and serve as their caregiver in the program.
In order to be eligible for medical marijuana in Michigan, you need to be certified by a physician for one of the state’s qualifying medical conditions. However, Michigan law gives the state Cannabis Regulatory Agency the authority to add conditions to the list of qualifying medical conditions. If your medical condition isn’t already on the list, you may be able to appeal to the agency to have it added.
Michigan also has a recreational adult-use cannabis program that allows people over 21 to purchase and cultivate their own cannabis.
Michigan has a fairly liberal recreational cannabis program, which limits the amount of benefits medical patients have over recreational users. That said, there’s one major benefit that’d be difficult to overlook: taxes. Michigan charges a 10% excise tax on all adult-use cannabis sales. Medical cannabis sales are exempt from the tax, meaning the savings over time for medical patients is substantial.
Medical cannabis patients in Michigan also have more dispensaries available to them. Medical patients can visit both medical and recreational dispensaries, while recreational users cannot purchase cannabis in medical dispensaries. Many municipalities in Michigan have banned recreational cannabis sales, but they allow medical cannabis dispensaries. So, medical patients have more cannabis available to them in more locations than recreational users.
Your risk-free NuggMD medical cannabis evaluation costs only $99. There’s absolutely no risk for you because patients who aren’t certified for Michigan’s medical cannabis program will get their evaluation for free. After you’re approved, you will still be responsible for Michigan’s $40 registration fee.
Cannabis remains a Schedule 1 drug, according to the federal government. Because the federal government doesn’t recognize medical marijuana programs, nearly all insurance companies refuse to pay the cost of medical cannabis.
Under Michigan law, the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program must approve or deny all applications within 15 business days. The MMMP has an additional 5 business days to mail out all ID cards after approval. So, you can wait up to 20 business days for your card to be mailed after you submit your application.
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 receive a full refund within 30 days if you haven’t received the Adult Patient Physician Recommendation form. Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “refund request.” Please include a brief description of your issue in the body of the email. NuggMD wants to be sure that you’re 100% satisfied with your service, since you, the customer, are the most important part of our business. Once you’re refunded, we are legally required to deactivate your medical certificate with the state. Once the refund has been initiated, please allow 3-5 business days for the funds to transfer back to the card you used for the transaction. If any issues arise, please feel free to reach out to customer support for further assistance.
Absolutely! Any state-licensed medical doctor can recommend medical cannabis in Michigan. Just be sure to provide your doctor with any relevant medical records, if possible, to help the evaluation process go more smoothly.
