We have applauded the State of Connecticut when it became the 17th state to enact an effective medical cannabis law on June 1, 2012, and since that time have been able to register many patients for medical cannabis. Finally, in July of 2021, Connecticut has legalized and decriminalized recreational cannabis. Even though this legislation has significantly improved access to safe cannabis, there are still many valid reasons to register for a medical cannabis card, not the least of which is greater legal protection as well as access to greater quality and potency of cannabis products which are essential for treatment in a myriad of medical conditions. (A list of currently approved conditions for medical cannabis is available on the "General Information" section of this website.)
Simply call us a (860) 501-1882 to make your appointment. We offer fast and discreet in-person as well as video appointments.
Our rates are reasonable, our appointment times are very flexible, and we will provide any assistance you may need to obtain your medical cannabis card.
For instance, we have many elderly patients some of whom are not comfortable with the online tools needed to complete the registration process. As a result, we have assisted many a patient in setting up his or her very first email account and have helped to upload the required documents to the State of Connecticut/Biznet website.
Since we are not just a registration service but a fully functioning medical office, we stay in contact with our patients throughout the year to assist with any problems that may arise from their use of medical cannabis. In fact, we are available for a consultation at any time to discuss concerns, side effects, or new symptoms which may benefit from an adjustment of cannabis products.
In short, we are the “GO TO” place for safe, convenient and personable registration and management of your medical cannabis card.
Please contact us if you cannot find an answer to your question.
It is very simple! You call us at (860) 501-1882 to set up an appointment. Appointments can be in person or via video call, whatever makes you most comfortable. Our appointments are reasonable and flexible and will typically take place within a few days.
We will review the currently approved qualifying conditions with you and select the most appropriate category to qualify you under. We may also ask you to provide a statement from your regular physician; however, this is not always necessary.
We will register you with the Connecticut State website during your appointment and, if necessary, help you through the steps needed to establish an account with the State of Connecticut as well as upload your documentation and complete your registration.
Throughout the year, we will periodically contact you and invite you to make an appointment to discuss any problems or concerns you might have with the use of medical cannabis. If you don't have any problems, that's great! But if you do experience some difficulties, it may be good for you to be reminded that we are here to help you.
A few weeks prior to the expiration of your medical cannabis card, we will contact you to remind you that your card needs to be re-registered and will offer you a convenient appointment with us.
100%! What you discuss with us is handled in a completely discreet manner. Our electronic health record and our office staff are 100% HIPAA compliant. No worries!!!
Since the initiation of the medical cannabis program in Connecticut, the process has become more and more streamlined. The typical amount of time it takes to be able to hold your medical cannabis card in hand is less than a week. We have been surprised to see that occasionally a new registration takes place in one day, but we cannot promise that this will be possible in every case.
Re-registrations of an already established medical cannabis card typically completes on the same day of your appointment with our office.
Our fee for a new registration is $200.00.
Our fee for a re-registration is $100.00 (even if the original registration was done by another office).
We will give a 25% discount to senior citizens and Veterans of the Armed Forces.
We will also occasionally run special promotions or raffles which may reduce our fees significantly. From time to time, we will announce these promotions via email or text message.
Depending on your circumstances, we may be able to offer a payment plan for our fees. Please ask at the time of your appointment.
The State of Connecticut requires an additional $100.00 fee to set up your account. This fee applies to new registrations as well as re-registrations. We do not collect this fee and have no influence over its amount. It is payable directly to the State of Connecticut at the time you upload your documentation and complete the registration process.
