If you’re interested in getting a Puerto Rico medical marijuana card, the following steps will guide you through the process. The card is your key to the dispensary and we look forward to serving you.
Step 1: ELIGIBILITY
Patients diagnosed with any of the following medical conditions are eligible to apply for a patient certification:
- Bipolar disorder
- Intestinal inflammatory disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Degenerative diseases such as ALS and MS
- Hepatitis C
- Diseases requiring palliative care
- Parkinson’s disease
- Peripheral neuropathies
- Spinal cord injury
- Other conditions causing cachexia, chronic pain, severe nausea, or muscle spasms
Step 2: PHYSICIAN RECOMMENDATION
The next step is to obtain your doctor recommendation from a physician who is registered with the PR medical marijuana program. When discussing medical cannabis with your doctor, it’s important to be honest about your health situation and explain why you believe medical cannabis treatment will be beneficial for you. If your physician agrees to recommend medical marijuana, they will submit your recommendation through the registration page.
Step 3: PATIENT APPLICATION
Once your physician recommendation is submitted, you’ll need to create an account on the Registration Page. You must locate your physician recommendation on the site, submit passport-style photos and required documents, and pay the application fee.
Step 4: MAKING PURCHASES
Once your application is approved, you’ll be added to the patient registry and permitted to purchase medical marijuana products from the dispensary nearest your home. We hope to see you soon!
