How to Obtain a Medical Marijuana Card Online
Wednesday, Jan 11, 2017

Welcome to NuggMD! As access to medical marijuana continues to sweep across the state of California, many people are asking about the most efficient and convenient ways to be evaluated by a medical marijuana doctor in order to obtain their own medical marijuana card.

Obtaining medical marijuana in California has usually consisted of an antiquated process of calling weed doctors around town to discuss pricing information, requirements and availability. Patients seeking approval must bring their state-issued I.D. along with them and depending on the doctor, medical records may be requested as well. Medical marijuana offices that allow walk-ins may have wait times of up to an hour and can be located in inconvenient and sketchy areas, particularly if the patient has stumbled upon a ‘bargain 420 clinic’ which offers cheaper rates for temporary recommendations.

For new patients who are seeking relief but have never been exposed to medical marijuana, this entire process can be an uncomfortable one. Finding a reputable doctor requires research, and a new patient must be aware of sketchy doctors who are selling licenses, have hidden fees or do not appear to be interested in performing an accurate evaluation.
