Medical Marijuana Renewal in New York

Is it that time of year again? Are you coming up on your New York medical marijuana ID's expiration date?

Don't worry, getting your NY medical marijuana certification renewed is no harder than it was to obtain your original. Actually, it's easier! And you don't want to procrastinate too long because you can face delays or interruptions in your medical marijuana treatments if you let your certification lapse. 

But, as we said, the re-registration process is a breeze.
Here, let's walk you through it.

NY MMJ Renewals Require a New Evaluation

New York state medical marijuana licenses are only valid for one year. Medical patients are required to renew their medical marijuana license every year if they want to continue using medical marijuana legally.

Patients must receive another marijuana evaluation by their New York-licensed physician before they can fill out the certification renewal online. This additional evaluation doesn't differ substantially from the first one. Your medical marijuana doctor will continue to thoroughly assess your medical conditions.

However, your New York medical marijuana renewal evaluation may come with a discussion regarding the efficacy of your marijuana treatment. Your doctor will very likely want to make adjustments to your dosage, timing or method of administration.

They will also want to know if there have been any changes to your other medications. So be sure to have your medication list available for your renewal appointment. If you have new medical records from other doctors bring these as well.

Afterward, you'll receive your renewed medical marijuana evaluation - the first step in your New York state medical marijuana renewal.

The New York State Re-Registration Process

Like the renewal evaluation, the New York state mmj certification renewal is not significantly different from your initial application, but it's faster and easier if you renew your certification within 30 days of your expiration date. 

If you can submit your renewal registration within 30 days of the expiration date of your initial medical marijuana license, the state can renew your MMJ ID right away. This means that you can receive continued medical marijuana care without any sort of interruptions or delays.

What if My NY MMJ Certification is Already Expired?

Remember that it took some time for the New York Medical Marijuana Program to evaluate your initial MMJ application. If you wait until after your medical license expires, your renewal may take a similar amount of time.

After submitting your re-registration, you will have to wait a few weeks for the New York Board of Health to approve your renewal. Keep in mind that, during these interim weeks you can not legally purchase, cultivate, possess, or use medical marijuana.

If you're caught with medical marijuana in your possession and your license is expired, you'll be subject to criminal penalties. Recreational marijuana isn't legal yet in New York state. NY law enforcement won't make exceptions for those patients with an expired marijuana license, even if the Medical Marijuana Program is evaluating your re-registration.

Don't Delay Your NY MMJ Renewal Evaluation

If you've been finding medical marijuana beneficial for your health, you shouldn't put yourself in a position where you'll see an interruption in your treatments. You should be mindful of the precise expiration date on your medical marijuana license (a year after your initial medical examination) so that you can re-register without any delays.

Also, keep in mind that the New York Medical Marijuana Program requires you to notify them of any changes in your personal information used in your medical marijuana registration. This includes your name, address, or any changes in your medical conditions listed on your medical ID.

Do I Need to See the Same Doctor for Renewal?

You can see any doctor you like for your medical marijuana renewal evaluation.  If you haven't seen a NuggMD doctor before, and you'd like to switch to NuggMD for your renewal evaluation because it's more convenient to complete online, you can!

If you are switching to a new doctor for your renewal, be sure to bring all of the medical records you used for your initial evaluation. Your new doctor will need to evaluate you as thoroughly as your first doctor did, and they will want information about how well your treatments have been working.

Why should you see a NY medical marijuana doctor online?

As someone with chronic pain, and little to no experience with applying for a medical card, I can confidently say this company and its doctors really care. It was so easy to get signed up and all I needed was a brief medical history. I will absolutely be using their services in the future and I 100% recommend to anyone trying to get their medical card in NY state!

Why see a NY medical cannabis doctor online.

In many cases, family practitioners are unwilling to issue MMJ recommendations because they simply don't understand the potential medical benefits of cannabis treatment. Most medical schools don't even offer classes that cover the endocannabinoid system--the group of nerve receptors in the human body that interact with THC, CBD and other cannabinoids in cannabis.

This is where services like NuggMD can help. NuggMD's fully-licensed physicians, all registered with the New York Medical Board, have taken the extra time to become educated about the medicinal use of cannabis. They know which medical conditions it's recommended for, and understand how it can be used to treat those conditions. So ask any question you want during your consultation! These doctors know what they're talking about.
