When can I apply?
Any time!!! You can apply for your medical marijuana license by making an appointment for an evaluation with us. After the evaluation is completed, we will submit your application to the State of CT. But first, you will need the diagnosis form filled out and signed by your diagnosing provider.
Do I need to re-apply on a regular basis, if so how often?
Yes. You will have to renew your license on a yearly basis. You are able to re-apply up to 30 days before your expiration date (listed on the front of your license). It will be up to you to remember to renew your license. Unfortunately, the State of Connecticut does not notify you of an expiring license.
How long does the process take?
You can expect it to take about 30 days to process your application. A temporary license will be emailed to you, which is good for 60 days, and will act as your license until you receive the permanent one. Note: you are required to have the license in your possession at all times.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
All you need to bring to your appointment with us is your ID, diagnosis form, and a method of payment.
What methods of payment to you accept?
We accept the following: Cash, Credit Card, Venmo and Cash App.
If I had an evaluation with you in the past and want to renew my license, what do I bring to the appointment?
We will keep your diagnosis form on file. Therefore, you will only have to bring your ID and a method of payment.
After I see you what do I do?
After leaving us, you should contact the dispensary of your choice, where an appointment can be made to complete the process. When you go to the dispensary to complete the application process, you must bring proof of identity, proof of address, and $100 cash.
