IndicaMD Helps You Get Medical Marijuana Certificates in Minneapolis

The state of Minnesota is strict with the regulation of medical cannabis – a policy that also extends to Minneapolis as the state’s capital. While the city is widely regarded as having one of the best healthcare systems in the United States, there is a lot of policing and scrutiny revolving around the use of medical marijuana.

State law is quite clear on the use of medical marijuana for the treatment of medical illnesses – going so far as to state that it is an experimental treatment in Chapter 311, subsection 8, subdivision 1 of the Minnesota Session Laws. None of this, however, makes it illegal to use marijuana for medical purposes since the state introduced the Medical Cannabis Therapeutic Use Act in 2014. Since medical cannabis is considered an experimental treatment, you need to ensure compliance with a long-list of rules before you are allowed to use it for your medical needs.

To make medical marijuana access easier, IndicaMD is now offering medical cannabis telemedicine services in Minneapolis. We work with qualified doctors who will certify that you are eligible for medical cannabis in Minneapolis. We only bill you after giving approval and certifying your condition.

The Procedure

To qualify for medical marijuana in Minneapolis, the first step is to get certification from a doctor that you have a condition that can be treated with medical marijuana. These conditions include:

  • Cancer associated with severe/chronic pain, nausea or severe vomiting, or cachexia or severe wasting
  • Glaucoma
  • Tourette Syndrome
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Seizures, including those characteristic of Epilepsy
  • Severe and persistent muscle spasms, including those characteristic of Multiple Sclerosis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn’s disease
  • Terminal illness with a probable life expectancy of one year or less and the illness results in severe and chronic pain, nausea or severe vomiting, or cachexia or severe wasting
  • Intractable pain
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Autism, if the DSM-V criteria for autism are met
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Chronic pain (effective Aug. 2020)
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration (effective Aug. 2020)
  • Sickle cell disease

Once you’re certified, you must register yourself with the Minnesota Department of Health’s Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC) and start receiving your medical cannabis.

The people at IndicaMD will help you register with the OMC, making the process easier for you. Our certified medical marijuana doctors are fully licensed to certify your medical condition, and our support teams work to simplify the registration process. With our services, we hope to make medical cannabis access easier for people who need it for their medical conditions.

We have a telehealth solution for all current Minnesota cannabis patients to recertify with their doctor online. We can connect you to an experienced physician via video chat to help recertify you for the Minnesota Cannabis Program.

Please note that this service is not for first-time patients. If this is your first time getting a cannabis certification, please visit a physician’s office in person and get evaluated for a Minnesota Cannabis certification.

Call us today at 844-930-2568 for more information on our services, or you can register yourself for our medical cannabis telemedicine services directly through our website.

Starting from Creekview Park, all the way to Solomon Park, Minneapolis – the team at IndicaMD will resolve all your Minneapolis medical marijuana certificate problems through our medical cannabis telemedicine services.

On May 30, Gov. Tim Walz signed the bill that legalizes adult-use cannabis in Minnesota (for more details, visit the Minnesota Office of Cannabis Management). The legislation includes good news for Minnesota Medical Cannabis Program patients:
  • Effective July 1, 2023, the annual enrollment fee will be eliminated.
  • Effective Aug. 1, 2023, a patient’s initial certification visit with a health care practitioner can be conducted via telemedicine.
  • Effective March 1, 2025, patients will be required to get recertified for their qualifying medical condition every three years, instead of every year.
  • Effective March 1, 2025, the age for registered caregivers to purchase cannabis flower will be 18, rather than 21.

While the tax on adult-use cannabis product sales will be 10% (in addition to state and local sales taxes), medical cannabis products will continue to be tax-free.

The Medical Cannabis Program will establish an alternative certification procedure for veterans who receive care from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to confirm that the veteran has been diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition. The new application procedure will be effective Jan. 1, 2024. We will share more about this procedure at a later date.
