New York Medical Marijuana Process

Getting Permission for New York Medical Marijuana Program

New York’s Medical Marijuana program is still a new program, starting in 2014 after the federal government passed a law, introducing New York to the medical marijuana marketplace.

This plan has been beneficial because it has allowed a fixed number of dispensaries to become operational in New York. The number of permitted dispensaries was initially set to 5 and incrementally increased to 10 and then 20.

New York allowed 5 organizations sell their products in the market at the start and then gradually, the number was raised to 10. \

Furthermore, according to the law, New York only allows the sale of Marijuana in capsules, oils and liquid form. Individuals are prohibited from smoking and recreational use of Marijuana.

Moreover, there are still restrictions on who is allowed to purchase and distribute the medicine and capsules.

Who Qualifies for Medical Marijuana Treatment?

Individuals diagnosed with one or two of the following ailments or chronic illnesses are legally protected under New York’s medical marijuana law, according to the Assembly Bill 6357:

  • Chronic Pain
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Cancer
  • HIV
  • Lou Gehrig’s Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Damage to the spinal cord with a neurological condition
  • Epilepsy
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease(IBD), neuropathies and Huntington’s Disease

What is the Process for Getting Medical Marijuana?

Getting Medical Marijuana treatment for your condition involves 3 steps. Firstly, you will need to speak with a medical marijuana physician so that they can analyze your condition. After the physician has approved of a recommendation, you will need to collect your card from your county’s dispensary.

Consulting a Healthcare Specialist

If you are suffering from one or more of the conditions mentioned earlier, you will need to speak to a certified physician for Marijuana therapy.

Our physicians are certified, experienced, and State-licensed doctors who can help you manage your condition via Marijuana Therapy.

When you speak with our medical marijuana doctor online, they will make a comprehensive examination and go over the medical history of your case. Speaking with an online medical marijuana doctor is no different than visiting a general physician.

Anything that you discuss with our Marijuana doctor will be completely confidential, and no one will have access to your medical files except you and your doctor. The main thing your medical doctor will be trying to assess is whether Marijuana treatment is what will work best for your condition.

Medical Marijuana, like any other drug, can have side effects which may cause problems if not taken in the right dosage. Our physicians are licensed to provide you with the dosage you need.

For most part, Marijuana treatment has had a significantly positive effect on patients and improved their lives by reducing pain, spasms, insomnia and loss of appetite. Your physician will also take your lifestyle and habits into account. Your Marijuana physician will also recommend the method of Marijuana consumption that would suit you best.

A good physician will openly answer all your questions. They will also inform you about the benefits that other patients have had from Marijuana treatment.

For most medical conditions, medical cannabis is used with the regular treatment and should not be considered a standalone treatment. In the case of cancer for instance, medical marijuana can significantly reduce the pain, insomnia and nausea that results from chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

However medical marijuana should not considered the primary medication.

Apply for a Registry Card

A medical marijuana registry card permits you legally purchase medical marijuana for treatments. The state of New York still does not allow purchase and consumption of marijuana for recreational purposes.

To get the medical marijuana card you must fulfill the qualifying conditions.

The first condition is that you must be a legal resident of the state of New York. You must possess proof of residency in the state and as a citizen. This can be provenwith a state issued ID to a passport with a state address. You may also be able to use utility bills or bank statements in your name that can prove that you are a resident of this state.

The second thing you would need is a physicians prescription or written certification from a registered medical practitioner in New York. The prescription must cover that the physician recommended medical marijuana for you to purchase and consume.

You must also have one of the debilitating conditions and your physician should highlight the qualifying condition for which they are recommending Marijuana. Once you have the required prescription and documents, you can complete an application for a New York Medical Marijuana Card through the New York State Department of Health. There is a $50 application fee.

When making a purchase in the future, you would need to present both your registry card and your ID at the dispensary.

Your registry card will arrive in mail after you have been approved by the state department.

Once you have your Marijuana card and doctor’s prescription, you will be able to purchase Marijuana legally.

I am very satisfied with the service that I received from At first I was a bit hesitant about seeing an online doctor. However, with everything else that I do in my life that is online (Amazon Fresh, Uber, ect) I decided to give it a shot. Without a doubt, I was pleasantly surprised at how seamless the overall process went. I was able to get a same day appointment with the doctor and after reviewing my medical records, he thought I was a great candidate for medical marijuana. On top of seeing me promptly, the doctor also guided me step by step through the NY state registration. Overall, I am very satisfied!

I was very pleased with the prompt response of Dr. O’Connell. He was professional, courteous, took his time and explained everything to me. I particularly liked being able to have my appointment/consultation via a telehealth application making it easier for me since there is difficulty driving after having chemo treatments due to side effects. After doing my research, I also realize his consultation fee is more affordable than others. Thank you Dr. O’Connell.

I made an appointment with Dr. Daniel O’Connell, and within minutes I was able to meet with him. The appointment was efficient but full of information, and that same day I was able to apply for my license with NY State. Dr. O’Connell made the process a breeze, and the conversation was professional, but very comfortable. He was attentive to my needs and concerns, answered all of my questions thoroughly, and provided me with resources to look into things further based on the information he provided. As someone suffering from my condition for most of my life and looking for an alternative to the available medicines I’ve tried, I was eager to learn more about the offerings of medical marijuana. However, I was hesitant given the stigma around marijuana in the United States. Dr. O’Connell was very knowledgable of the cause of my condition and the effects of medical marijuana in terms of offering relief. He made me very comfortable in my decision to try medical marijuana by breaking down the process of how it addresses my symptoms compared to other currently available drugs. He not only spoke about recent advancements in the field for the various medicines (and also recommended I consider these as well), but also about the advancements in the medical field when it comes to understanding my condition. I was very satisfied with the level of detail in the information he gave me (most of it I hadn’t even heard from my other doctors before), and the reassurance he offered regarding the professionalism and safety of the dispensaries where I would pick up the medicine.
