Create an account. Talk Dr, Cheryl using your cell phone or computer. If she thinks cannabis can help, you will discuss treatment options and you will download your certification document. The New York State health board will mail you a marijuana card within one week of certification.
Once Dr. Cheryl has diagnosed you with a qualifying condition (see list below) and you have received your certification, you can use it the same day to purchase from a qualified dispensary. You will also need to register with the Medical Marijuana program through the state’s online Patient Registration System.
Once you’ve submitted your information, it will typically take the standard 7-10 business days for your medical marijuana card to arrive in the mail, at which point you can purchase legal marijuana from a qualified NY state dispensary.
New to cannabis? Dr. Cheryl will go over your medical history and provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan. The price of $130 includes the certification document valid for one year. If you do not qualify to be treated via telemedicine you will not be charged.
If you are already a patient of the Medical Marijuana New York State program, the renewal visit is discounted at $120 and is valid for the following year.
Please note you will not be charged the fee if the doctor does not believe that the video visit meets his standard of care.

Moreover, patients who suffer from a severe debilitating or life-threatening condition or any of the following conditions may be entitled to medical marijuana:

Lastly, medical marijuana may be recommended by a physician as a pain-relieving opioid substitute in order to help curb the ongoing opioid epidemic (this is a new amendment to the MMJ program as of July 2018).
