Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get a medical card?
Each state has its own medical card program with its own unique requirements. You can learn about your state’s specific requirements by visiting our states guide.
All states require a doctor’s certification from a registered medical card doctor. Here at Green Mind, we offer quick, online appointments with our doctors. Once you receive your certificate, you submit it along with your application to the state. Voila!
How do I apply to the state?
Each of the states we serve, including Maryland, Michigan, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Oregon, allows patients to apply to become medical cardholders online. In the past, we had to do physician evaluations in person and snail mail all completed documents.
The application process has changed over time, and now the entire process is digital. Depending on the state, you may even be emailed a temporary certification while you wait on your physical ID!
What documentation do I need to apply to the state?
Again, it varies from state to state (check your state’s guide). In general, you will need proof of identity, proof of residency, and a physician’s letter of recommendation (that’s what we give you!). Some states require a passport-style photo as well.
How long does the entire process take?
You should expect to spend about 15 minutes completing our registration forms, and about 15 more minutes speaking with one of our doctors. After your appointment, you will need to submit your paperwork to the state.
Hate paperwork? No worries, we got you. For a small fee, we’ll handle all the paperwork for you. Just select the “Paperwork Assistance” option at checkout.
When do I actually get the card?
I know we keep saying this, but… it depends on the state! Most states will mail you a wallet card in about 3-4 weeks. Luckily, some states send a temporary card through your email so you can begin visiting dispensaries right away.
Is it really this easy? This doesn’t seem legit...
Don’t worry, the simplicity is by design! It is our goal to be the easiest and most stress-free medical marijuana certification service out there. We have certified hundreds of patients in each of our states and are highly trusted medical experts.
We believe that medical marijuana is a great treatment option for individuals with certain medical conditions. Our low-cost, online platform is designed to help reduce barriers between patients and medical marijuana treatment.
What if I don’t have doctors’ records for my medical condition?
No problem! If you have a physician, you can simply fill out a HIPAA release form allowing us to contact them on your behalf.
Our appointments are 100% risk-free. If you aren’t approved by one of our doctors, you’ll get your money back.
