Click on TALK TO A DOCTOR on the HelloMD web site. Fill out the intake forms and get ready to speak with a California licensed physician about your condition(s)...as long as you have a chronic medical condition that affects some aspect of your life (working, shopping, socializing, sleeping, etc) and (1) you have tried cannabis for it and it helps or (2) you would like to try cannabis to see if it helps, you should be ok - so long as you do not have any contra-indications for using medical marijuana. (You also must reside in California and have a valid Government issued ID.)

The recommendation you received from HelloMD, is good for any dispensary in California. You can elect to apply to the state of CA in addition to the recommendation you have, but this is voluntary and does not provide you with additional privileges. Most people do not bother to register with the state.

If you're on our website click 'talk to a doctor' to begin. If you have an iPhone, you can download the HelloMD app for free from the App Store. Once you register, you'll fill out some basic information, a complete health questionnaire, upload a photo of yourself (for your ID card), a photo of your state-issued photo ID (passport, driver's license, or identity card to verify your identity), and finally, pay the $59 fee via Visa, MasterCard or Discover. You'll then be prompted to join our virtual waiting room where you will be greeted by one of our friendly and informative customer support representatives; they will ensure that your video and audio are working well, and answer any questions you have before meeting with the doctor. Once you have your consultation with the doctor (takes approximately 10 minutes), if you are approved, your letter of recommendation will be available for immediate download within your account. We will also mail you an embossed version and photo ID card the same day; they should arrive within 3-5 business days.

You must be 18 years of age or older to use HelloMD. Contrary to popular belief, CA laws do not require you to be a CA resident, nor have a CA ID to obtain a CA medical marijuana recommendation. As long as you are physically in CA at the time of your doctor's consultation, you are eligible to use our service and to obtain a cannabis card.

If you have any difficulties along the way, please use the live chat feature (bubble at bottom of screen) to obtain assistance from our customer support team.

May i use a visa gift card to pay the $49.00 fee for the medical card? I do not want to use my credit card.

I have decided to get a letter from my The MD I used in CA. This seems to be the most expedient way to move forward. Thanks

It would depend on what state you live in, since the requirements for each state is different. In California you can go to our site, HelloMD.com and obtain a evaluation by one of our California physicians. In other states you would need to locate a physician who would be able visit in their office. In other states as well, some have very strict requirements for obtaining a recommendation.

Great question! Cannabis has been found to help greatly with seizures. High CBD content products seem to be the composition that works the best. By going low in slow in terms of increasing your cannabis use while decreasing your phenobarbital use would most likely be the best way to proceed. Contact your neurologist to make them aware that you are doing this so that they can follow you.

If you are referring to a license to grow cannabis, this is found on whatever state you reside in on their cannabis website. I would do a state specific search for "obtaining a cannabis growing license in _ state.

If you are over 18 years old, you can get a card from HelloMD online consultation service. The entire doctor-consultation is done online; and your letter is immediately emailed to you, and a second hard copy mailed to you. www.hellomd.com good luck!

We would love to help you but you must be in CA at the time of the recommendation so you may want to let us know as soon as you have arrived so you can begin the process.

First of all I'm terribly sorry that you are undergoing all this pain and discomfort. You are more than welcome to visit any of our fine MD's from 10am- 7 pm Monday through Sunday to obtain a med cann. recommendation; our doctors are also very good at providing other bits of health advice to address your needs (for example, I have some training in pain mgmt and sports medicine/ rehab/ physiatry). We look forward to hearing from you soon!

I'm sorry I think there was some confusion. I stated that you are more than welcome to go to any facility where you are located that a licensed CA physician can write for a CA medical cannabis recommendation (this can be in SF, Canoga Park, etc). However, I was suggesting that you can use the services of our website and see an MD online and obtain said recommendation online without having to wait/ go to a brick-and-mortar clinic. So my recommendation is to go and see one of our fine physicians through HelloMD online (obtaining the app first). Our customer service reps are excellent and can lead you through the entire process. Sorry once again for the confusion!

If you register with at HelloMD.com you will be able to see a one of our physicians if you are located in California at the time of your evaluation. If appropriate, you will be able to obtain a recommendation.

Need to be in CA for this to work, and not sure if it works outside of CA, but simply log into HelloMD during business hours (I think 9-7 PDT), and confer with the doc. If you are in the proper health, you can get the help

We have 57 related articles on our website answering this or a related questions so I encourage you to do a search and if you still do not find clarity on your question, then you can be more specific about what you still do not understand about how to obtain your California medical cannabis card.

Currently California dispensaries only have permits to sell medical cannabis. The legislation is still in works for the permitting of recreational sales and will likely be issued sometime in 2018. I hope this helps!

you would need a consultation with a physician and based on the consultation if agreed that is the next best step then you would be able to get a card

You should have a consultation with a physician. They will discuss with you what you have tried for your arthritis and if medical marijuana is an option for you.

If you are in the state of California you will need to have a consultation with a doctor and have one of the medical conditions that is officially recognized by the state of CA.

Before the consultation you will need to show proof of age with a government ID such as a driver's license or passport. You will also need to be within the state at the time. You will fill in your medical history, pay and then see the doctor. Our hours are 7 days a week from 10am to 7pm. After the consultation the doctor will send you a letter which states whether you have been approved.

The consultation is private, just like any other doctor's records. If approved you will receive your letter of recommendation and a medical card.

cannabis may be an option depending on your medical history. There are possible side effects however, if the decision is made to start MMJ then the goal would be to try to minimize those risks by using a smaller dose
