It's Fast, Easy, & Affordable!

Get Started in Minutes

Medical marijuana will be legalized in North Carolina soon. Don't be last on the list to schedule your medical card health evaluation. We can help, by referring you to one of the doctors certified to interview you for your NC medical marijuana card.

Fast Approval in Most States

The application method is still to be determined. But in many states, the physician helps the patient finish the registration process. It is done online, and there is a fee to pay for the application. Your information will be reviewed and the state medical cannabis program will notify you if you have been approved. It's that easy!

Same-Day Dispensary Access?

In many states, once you have the letter of referral from the physician, the registration process is done quickly online. That means it is possible to visit a dispensary in North Carolina that same day. It's going to take a while to open these dispensaries, but NC lawmakers may decide to allow a temporary card that patients can download and print.

What Happens After Your Medical Card Evaluation?

Get Your Medical Card

The process of issuing medical cards to North Carolina patients is still to be determined. But many states allow patients to download and print their medical card for temporary use, until the permanent card arrives in the mail. That means patients can visit a dispensary sooner.

Visit a Dispensary

Bring your medical card, and government-issued ID to the dispensary. You will need both forms of identification to visit a North Carolina dispensary and buy marijuana products. If your medical card or photo identification is expired, you will not be permitted to purchase at the dispensary.

Save Money

Not only can North Carolina patients save money as they are not taxed for medical marijuana, but there are also other ways your medical card can save you money. Many dispensaries provide discount days throughout the week.

Get Priority Access

When the lockdown happened, stores closed. But two types of businesses (pharmacy and dispensary) were designated an "essential service" in legalized states. That mean that they could stay open and serve patients. North Carolina Patients with health needs always come first.

Schedule a Followup

The North Carolina Medical Cannabis Advisory Board established that doctors must have a bona fide relationship with the patient. That means you will need to schedule more than one appointment with the physician for your medical card health evaluation (G.S. 90-113.116). And follow-up appointments to review changing health conditions or symptoms.

Renew Your Card

Once you get your North Carolina medical card, don't forget to renew it! There will be an expiration date that you can see on the front of your card. It can take time to get a doctor's appointment for your health check. Don't let your North Carolina MMJ card expire. The current proposed cost of renewal is $50.00.

Get Your Medical Marijuana Card in 3 Easy Steps


Want to be in the first group of patients with a qualifying health condition, to schedule a medical card health evaluation and get started? Use the form to submit your info. You won't have to go looking for a doctor to complete your evaluation; we'll have one contact you.


Would you feel better talking to a physician who specializes in your health condition(s)? If you have a chronic disease like diabetes, cancer, epilepsy, or a G.I. disorder, we can get a doctor who has experience in those specific areas. Get expert medical advice from a certified practitioner.


North Carolina will require an in-office visit for the medical card health evaluation. Doctors must have a bona fide relationship with the patient, which means more than one visit. However, if you are approved for a North Carolina medical card, your annual renewals could be conducted by telemedicine (online). It is still to be determined by the NC Senate.

Why Should You Get a Medical Card?

Access for 18-20 Year-Olds
If you are 18 years of age or older, you do not have to wait to get access to medical marijuana. Parental consent is not required. Recreational users must be 21 or older.

Increased Possession Limits
Patients are allowed to purchase, carry, and own larger quantities of marijuana than recreational users. In some states, medical card holders are allowed to grow at home.

Save Money on Medical Cannabis
Most states have massive taxes on marijuana products. Medical card holders are exempt from most of those taxes.

Greater Product Accessibility
Medical cannabis patients get access to a wider range of products. Choose from more diverse ratios of cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG, and CBN, which can help reduce inflammation.

Cannabis Tourism
Your medical card may be accepted in many other states. This allows you to access many new products, new strains, and get your medicine while traveling.

Legal Protection of Consumption
With a medical card, your ability to purchase, store, and consume cannabis is legally protected, as long as you buy from a licensed dispensary.

Hundreds of Thousands of Happy Patients

I am so grateful for this site for giving me the information and referrals I need to get treated for breast cancer with [natural medicine] instead of harsh chemicals and radiation. I was guided through the whole process and I have been using the sublingual tincture with 1:1 ratio, and I am feeling fantastic.

I was looking for a place to get my MMMP card. I found this site and they sent me to the AMMA Medical Clinic. I loved it. I was not there forever. It was a great experience, and I will be sending my friends.

Hello. I would like to say that I have had a pleasant experience with this website. They have been very helpful. I told them I was older, and they walked me through the steps I needed to do. Everyone did what they said. In today’s environment, that is a rare and good thing for people to have a genuine concern. Thank you.
