What are the 4 steps needed to obtain your marijuana card in KENTUCKY?

Make a copy of your physician’s recommendation and send it to the Kentucky Medical Marijuana Program. This Department is in charge of everything related to medical cannabis. The Department will evaluate your case once they receive your certification, along with your photo ID and payment of fees.

Step 4 – Where’s the nearest Connecticut dispensary?

Once the program goes live and we can start issuing the written certifications, our pre-approved patients will be the first to receive their certifications.

According to the most recent information released by the state, you’ll just need to get certified by a provider in Kentucky to receive your written certification that will allow you to possess pot.

At this time there is no planned state registration or additional steps for after receiving your written certification. 

This means you’ll be able to see the doctor, get your certification the same day and then immediately start enjoying the benefits of being a Kentucky medical patient!

There is little information on whether MMJ patients would be allowed caregivers under HB 136.

No. As a medical patient you are protected by HIPAA. My Marijuana Cards makes the privacy and security of our patients’ confidential information a top priority. No one will be able to find out your status as a medical marijuana patient unless you openly tell them or if you are administered a drug test for marijuana.

 

Kentucky’s medical program is now on it’s way and is expected to be up and running by January 1st, 2023.

Kentucky’s program is unique in that it will not have dispensaries to purchase products in the state of Kentucky, at least to start.

Instead, patients who have received a written certification from a provider in Kentucky will be able to purchase marijuana products outside of the state and then legally possess these products while in Kentucky.

At this time, the state of Kentucky has not signed any reciprocity agreements with other states. That does not bar other states from accepting/honoring your KY card if they so choose.

Look no further, see one of our compassionate medical marijuana physicians and get your medical card today from home.

Use medical marijuana telemedicine to visit a KY marijuana doctor online and get your medical card from home! You can use your smartphone, tablet, or personal computer.

The advisory panel set up by Governor Beshear found that military veterans find relief from PTSD symptoms when using medical marijuana. Hopefully, PTSD will be one of the qualifying conditions should HB 136 or any other piece of legislation legalizing MMJ pass into law.

Kentucky’s medical program is now live as of January 1st, 2023.

The medical program is a little different than your typical one in that it will not have dispensaries in Kentucky actually dispensing marijuana.

Instead, patients who have received a written certification from a provider in Kentucky will be able to purchase marijuana products outside of the state and then legally possess these products while in Kentucky.

Only a licensed medical marijuana provider can determine if you qualify for the program, so we cannot guarantee your approval. However, if you do not get approved by our doctor you will receive a FULL refund! 

We want to make this process 100% RISK-FREE for you!

Guide for Guardians to Register a Minor Patient

STEP 1: Schedule Appointments with Two Physicians

  • Get two doctors to agree that marijuana is the best option for the minor patient.

    • The patient’s primary care provider must be one physician.

    • The other must be board certified in the qualifying condition’s field of medicine.

  • One of the two doctors must enter the medical marijuana registration system and certify that the patient has at least one qualifying condition.

  • The second doctor will write a letter confirming that marijuana is the best option.

STEP 2: Complete the Patient Registration Process

Following your scheduled appointments, the minor patient should enter their information into Kentucky’s medical marijuana registration system.  

The parent or guardian must complete the registration by:

  • Using the following link to set up a free account in the State’s Business Network system. 

  • Log in with the email and password you used to register for the Business Network.

  • Select “I am a Patient,” and then provide the certifying physician with the minor patient’s date of birth and email address.

  • Once logged in, you will see a pre-filled form with the physician’s patient information. If the information is incorrect, you must correct it as soon as possible.

  • After confirmation, choose a dispensary from which to purchase medical marijuana.

  • Following that, you must provide information about yourself as the patient’s Caregiver.

  • Finally, choose a method of payment. A minor patient must pay a fee of $100.

STEP 3: Complete the Caregiver Registration Process

  • You will see a pre-filled screen with the physician’s patient information and your own caregiver information.

  • You will then be asked a series of questions to confirm your understanding of being a caregiver and your responsibilities.

  • Following that, you must upload proof of identity and residency, a photograph of yourself, and a letter from the second physician.

  • Finally, you’ll need to choose a payment method. A Caregiver costs $25 per hour.

STEP 4: Kentucky’s MMJ Program Reviews the Application

  • You will be notified via email if your registration has been approved or if any information is missing.

  • The Caregiver will receive a medical marijuana registration card in the mail from MMJ Program.

  • They will not issue ID cards to minor patients. Proof that the minor patient is registered can be provided by the minor’s email confirmation and your caregiver card.

To qualify for a Kentucky medical marijuana card, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old

  • Be an in-state resident

  • Have at least one of the state’s qualifying medical conditions

If you’re a minor, you are still eligible for a Kentucky medical marijuana card; you just have to have an Approved Caregiver handle all of the cannabis-related decisions. 

All marijuana products and accessories are legal under the state of Kentucky. Kentucky has:

  • Edibles

  • Oils

  • Topicals

  • Tinctures

Kentucky Medical Marijuana Cards are valid for one year from the date of certification. This is an important distinction because the clock begins to tick at that point. This is true even if you do not use the card for several weeks.

Even with a valid MMJ card, you cannot grow or otherwise cultivate weed at home.

Right now, the cost is estimated to be $150-$300. Will be updated.

Kentucky insurers do not generally provide coverage for medical marijuana because insurance companies do not cover any costs associated with medical marijuana due to conflicts with federal law.

Kentucky’s program is unique in that it will not have dispensaries to purchase products in the state of Kentucky, at least to start.

Instead, patients who have received a written certification from a provider in Kentucky will be able to purchase marijuana products outside of the state and then legally possess these products while in Kentucky.
