How to Get a Medical Card in Tennessee


When the time comes, you can visit us online to screen medical marijuana doctors and schedule an appointment for a marijuana treatment evaluation. Patients should be prepared to provide a recent copy of their medical records and a valid identification card and to discuss their medical concerns with a qualified medical marijuana physician. Certification from a licensed physician is necessary for patients to apply to the medical marijuana program in their state.


Medical marijuana treatment consultations are fast and convenient. Our licensed medical marijuana providers provide certifications for most medical conditions. Patients complete their evaluations and receive their medical marijuana certifications in less than 30 minutes.


Once approved, patients can submit their applications to the state. Approved applicants will receive a physical card by postal mail. Patients can visit any state-licensed dispensary of their choice in Tennessee after they receive their medical marijuana cards. Tennessee patients must see a licensed physician to renew their medical marijuana certifications. Marijuana Doctors sends notifications for renewal consultations prior to expiration to help patients avoid treatment interruptions.
